Bloomberg Has Ways Of Making New Yorkers Obey

The Government Has The Right To Curtail Your Freedoms Says New York’s Control Freak Mayor Bloomberg

Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City, notorious for his obsession with nanny state style control freakery said on Sunday: “Sometimes government does know best. And in those cases, Americans should just cede their rights.”

Bloomberg went on to say, “I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom,” He was speaking during an appearance on NBC television. The amazing comment was made during a discussion of his attempt to ban large size fizzy drinks because of their high sugar content. Bloomberg’s proposed city law has been struck down by the courts but the mayor insists that his fight to control sugary drink consumption, fatty foods, and regulate how people behave in the privacy of their own homes in the city would go forth.

“We think the judge was just clearly wrong on this,” he told the NBC audience . “Our Department of Health has the legal ability to do this. … They’re not banning anything.” Well I suppose regulating something is not quite the same as banning it.

Mr. Bloomberg’s years in office have launched a blitzkrieg of regulations, policy pushes and propaganda nudges against New Yorkers on a wide range of issues. Aside from the soda size ban and a well-publicized call for tighter gun control, another contentious policy was pressuring hospitals to withhold baby formula in an attempt to to force mothers to breast-feed newborns.

Bloomberg might believe he has done good things through his control freakery but internationally he has made New York City a laughing stock. London Mayor Boris Johnson famously invited New Yorkers to move to London where they can have fizzy drinks as large as they like.

What A Silly Sausage You Are Mr. Mayor

The notoriously politically correct Mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, whose city administration has banned large fizzy drinks and tried to ban the calorie laden food Americans love could not have been comfortable speaking at the official weigh-in ahead of the national hot dog eating competition which takes place in New York’s Coney Island yesterday.

To make matters worse, Mr. Bloomberg, who is known for being intense and humourless as only politically correct do gooders can be, left the wording of his speech to an official speechwriter. This joker decided that a light-hearted approach was called for and littered the address with really dodgy puns that would have been at home in a Carry On film but that the Mayor did not have the chutzpah or comic timing to get away with.

Mr Bloomberg began with a weak gag about New York being “top dog” for street food.He went on to wonder aloud whether the current champion Joey Chestnut would “swallow the competition” or whether another “chow hounds” had the “pedigree” to win. He then told the audience about how much he “relished” the competition.

Speaking about the current male and female champions, he asked: “Will one of their dogged pursuers finally ketchup, cut the mustard and be pronounced wiener? No question it is going to be a dog fight.”

Some of the puns were so laboured they would have been at home in a Carry On film. We would like to close on a hot dog related pun of our own but the only thing that comes to mind is the old George Melly song, Hot Dog Man about a gentleman who performs certain services for ladies who want a hot dog in their roll.

Oo – er Missis.

Boris And The Fizzy Drink Fascists

Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York is rapidly acquiring a reputation as one of the world’s leading politically correct fascists. He introduced the Orwellian offence of Thought Crime to the New York City statute book when he passed a law that made it illegal to carry doughnuts into a children’s playground because people in possession of doughnuts might think about eating a doughnut in front of the precious little darlings thus encouraging them to think eating a doughnut is OK and setting them on the slippery slope to junk food addiction and early death.

Bloomberg did not stop there however. So obessive is his control freakery that not only did he ban smoking in al public spaces he also tried to ban New Yorkers for smoking in their own homes. Why not just ban the sale of cigarettes? you might well ask. Actually that would be unconstitutional.

New Yorkers have been under attack from Bloomberg’s Thought Police for a long time now but at last they have a champion, a man willing to defend their right to eat kak, smoke poisonous weed and drink fizzy da – glo coloured drinks against the dark forces of political correctness. Not Superman, not Batman, but London Mayor Boris Johnson.

Mr Johnson who has been in New York to promote his new book on London, was appearing on The Daily Show when he was asked by host Jon Stewart about Mayor Bloomberg’s plans to ban the sale of sweetened fizzy drinks larger than sixteen ounces at restaurants, cinemas and sports venues.

Mr Johnson said: “What I will say is that refugees from the soda tyranny of New York City will have sanctuary in London.”

“I don’t want to sound jingoistic, but if you do wish to come and drink soda from a 16 ounce pot, come to London. Bring your huddled masses yearning to break free.”

We’re not sure what Madam Liberty, standing sential over New York harbour, the portal to the Land Of The Free would have though of the quotation but she is French so she was probably puffing on a Gauloise and drinking wine as she waited between courses of saturated fat laden food.

Do – nut related thought crime

The East and West coasts of the USA are astoundingly illiberal places these days yet the leaders of the march to authoritarianism insist on calling themselves ‘liberals’,
‘progressives’ or ‘progressive liberals.’ There seems to be a contests going on between the municipal authority in New York City and the state government of California as to which of these ‘liberal’ bodies can pass the most authoritarian and repressive laws to curtail the right of citizens to make their own choices. Needless to say the solidly left leading, Obama felching mainstream media are shilling for every curtailment of freedom, every attack on personal liberty.

Perhaps is the reason that a recent story about a new advance of authoritarianism didn’t attract much worldwide attention. Under the Obama administration and their ruthless Thought Police each new craziness is greeted with a resigned sigh and a roll of the eyes that say, “Well some of us did try to warn you.”.

Under a new city ordnance New York’s Finest have not yet been reduced to handing out fines for smoking in city parks, but they are still booking park visitors for crimes like…eating a doughnut in a playground. Yes, in this enlightened era, the era of everybody’s rights when the California State Legislature is busy passing laws to protect goldfish’s rights, the police gave two young women in the Bedford – Stuyvesant borough summonses for eating doughnuts in a playground while unaccompanied by a minor.

“This cop attempted to be sympathetic. He proceeded to tell us that he was trying to be a gentleman by just giving us summonses instead of taking us in for questioning, because that was what “they” wanted him to do.” One of the women told reporters.

Finally, we were given our summonses and were free to go. Because we hadn’t been drinking alcohol or urinating in public, we do not have the option of pleading guilty by mail. Not that I am planning on pleading guilty. But either way, we have to show up in court or a warrant will be issued for our arrest.”

It’s incredibly sad that the main objection in the blogosphere was that the police should have just ‘moved them on’ instead of issuing a ticket. Not that the law itself should quite simply not be in place at all!

There was a time not so long ago when one of life’s pleasures for many was sitting in a sunny park taking in all of the relaxing atmosphere. The open space, breeze, birds, greenery, and yes, the sight and sounds of kids happily playing. Now it is an offence in New York, punishable by a fine to be near children unless accompanied by a minor. Presumably a paedophile accompanied by a child they had groomed would be quite safe from prosecution and – presumably again because the bureaucrats who work for the ‘liberal’ authoritarian city government – the next step if one refuses on principle to pay will be imprisonment.

And don’t make the mistake of thinking the same kind of politically correct lunacy can’t happen where you are, either. The Progressive Liberal Politically Correct Thought Police are coming soon to a town, street, park, house near you. House? Yes, they a planning laws controlling how you behave in your own home.

The only ‘crime’ or misdemeanour committed in the donutgate case is to have contravened an ordnance constructed by the state to tackle a problem that simply doesn’t exist. Punishing people for sitting watching kids playing is dangerously legitimising ‘thought crime’ as a concept – the criminalisation of someone having cirtain (in this case dirty) thoughts while in a park. Well I have had lots of dirty thoughts in parks but never about children. I have done lots of dirty things too but we need not go into that now, I and the ladies I was with at the time were careful to make sure we could not be seen.

The truly sinister thing about this case is that exactly like the Thought Police in George Orwell’s novel 1984, though the authorities can never know what is really going on in someone’s head, there is no defence. To place oneself in a position where one might possibly be tempted to think the unthinkable is to be guilty of having the potential and the equipment (a brain) to commit a thought crime. In effect a judge might say “You are guilty of being guilty. The women in the donutgate case were punished not because they did anything wrong because there was the potential for them to have dirty thoughts; that they might commit a thought crime. Echoes of Big Brother and 1984 again. The “All men are potential rapists,” brand of fat ugly lezzas feminists are going to have fun with this.

Now it is possible every adult – male or female except me – has this uncontrollable urge to fuck an 8 year old if they see them having fun on a climbing frame, don’t they? Can it be that I am the only person so perverted I don’t want to have sex with children just as I am, according to Freud, the only male human so crazy I never wanted to have sex with my Dear Old Mum? I think not.

The only disgusting, creepy perverts to be seen in this sorry story are the filthy-minded wannabe Nazis who believe our imaginings default to the most vile sexual crimes over something as innocent as just enjoying a coffee and a doughnut while watching kids play.

And before stupid liberal fuckwit pulls the puerile “how would you feel if it were your kids” argument. It wouldn’t bother me in the slightest if someone had watched my two in the park then went home and emptied a box of kleenex at the thought. If for no other reason than I would never have known.

If a atnyone attempted to abduct my grandchildren on the other hand (the kids a big enough to look after themselves now), – an occurrence so unlikely that I have more chance of winning the national lottery – then I would rip that erson’s head off and throw it to a pack of hungry rats.

Which reminds me, I wonder how Obama’s kiddie fiddling Czar, that Kevin Jennings guy who got a job in the US Education Dept on the strength of his publishing books about the desirability of sexualising pre pubescent children is getting on with his project to sexualise America’s five year olds. That’s the thing with American ‘liberals you see, it’s always hard to tell which face you are talking to.

Scientific note: I would not really rip the person’s head off; while snapping someone’s neck is a piece of cake the elasticity and tensile strength in skin and muscles mean that a silverback gorilla would be able to rip a human head off but not another human.

Don’t Work Too Hard – Nobody Appreciates You For It

This story came from The New York Times news paper

George Turklebaum worked as a proof readers for a publishing company in New York, he had been with the form 30 years and was said to be a very quiet, unassuming man who did not care much for socialising.

There was never an issue about George’s diligence however, his bosses and colleagues said he loved his work was always first at his desk in the morning and last to leave the office at night. More that that he seldom took a lunch or coffee break or wasted time talking to other employees.

One week however George was particularly uncommunicative. As usual nobody saw him arrive or leave and not only he did not get up from his desk during the course of any working day but he never even shifted his position.

None of his colleagues though it odd however, George was a quiet guy, they assumed he was absorbed in his task of proof reading medical textbooks.

Nobody though to ask George how things were going until a on Saturday morning a cleaner wondered why he was working through the weekend.

The post mortem examination reported that George had died of a heart attack, probably on the Monday morning and that is why he had stayed in the same position all week and why his bladder and bowels had never needed emptying.

Now we hear tales of how regimented American employees are these days and how intensely they pursue success so it is not surprising nobdy noticed George was not moving, they’d be too concerned with their own bonuses and career paths.

But he sat in that chair dead for a full working week. Did nobody notice the smell … and the fact that he was dripping.

Baby Bible Basher

A fascinating and disturbing television documentary last night dealt with infant evangelical preachers and focused particularly on seven year old Samuel who, according to his parents, has been preaching since he was three. Poor little bugger must have been born again in Jesus before he had even cleared his mother’s birth canal.
Young Sam had a message from God telling him to go top New York and preach the “good news.” Ever eager to obey the Lord’s command Sam’s parents loaded their prodigy and his young siblings in the family’s Biblebago and headed north from their home in Jesusville, Biblebelt, Jesusland so the boy wonder could preach to the sinners of New York and warn them of God’s terrible wrath.
In the Big Apple things did not go well. Sam preached to the sinners, some people laughed, some called his parents bigots and child abusers, some asked w.t.f. a seven year old knew about fornication, abortion, drug abuse and hypocrisy. Some unkind people even made fun of Sam’s deep south accent. Now that is deplorable, making fun of a child’s rustic accent is jut not acceptable behaviour in and circumstances. I would never stoop so low to get cheap laughs.
Well Rev. Sam was deeply hurt by the mockery, but he followed Jesus’ example and carried on with his mission to preach to the sinners.
He went to the tourist sinners and preached;
he went to Wall Street and preached to the financial sinners;
he preached in the retail and administrative sinners;
he even preached in the Rockefeller sinner.
And still those cruel New Yorkers mocked his southern accent.

Eventually the family had to return to their home in Jesusland, but they promised to return when New Yorkers were ready to “accept Jesus.” They had learned nothing of reality and still feel it is their task to convince us all that the day of judgement it near and it will be too late to repent for the wrath of the Lord will come down upon the sinners.
Perhaps they had heard stories of the “wrath of the Lord coming down upon the World Trade Sinner and thought it was a sign. They are crazy enough to believe such ideas.

MORE humour every day from Boggart Blog.

Does humour travel?

Many comedians will affirm humour does not always travel well; even in a country as small as Britain people in the north have a very different sense of humour to those in the south.
And as for crossing the Atlantic, one very famous comedian used to say “there is many a joke told on a London stage that New Yorkers will not laugh at – and I can tell you the reason for that. They can’t hear it.”

The Official Tooth Fairy

A New York dentist, whose exhorbitant claims on the state’s Medicaid programme suggested she treated more than 100 patients an hour, faces prosecution in what looks set to become a major political scandal. In one day in 2003, Dr Dolly Rosen claims she treated 991 patients.

In Britain of course we are used to a much higher standard. The average National Health Service dentist treats one patient in 991 days.
