Nanny BloomingPanties Beclowns Self Again

Yes, we know that Nanny BloomPanties’ ban on soft drink containers larger than 16oz has been in the news for a couple of days, but as reports filter in from the more exasperatingly retarded Imperial Provinces in ever increasing numbers, it’s getting hard to keep up.

But it turns out that us not getting to this story from the black hole of terminal stupidity that is NY, NY, until now only allowed us to hit it at the exact point where it became even more stupid than it originally was: When Nanny BloomieFascist defended his latest meddling into none of his frackin’ business on National Doughnut Day, a day that he supports very much and very officially.

Oopsies.

Which would be funny enough in itself, but the senile, drooling old fascist decided to triple down on stupid by claiming that there wasn’t a logical disconnect between the two — on one hand being against people being allowed to drink their Coke in any cup size they damn well want and, on the other, promoting one of the single most empty servings of triple-digit calories known to this nation — that in fact… No, let us let him do the beclowning himself:

“It doesn’t sound ridiculous,” Bloomberg replied. “One doughnut is not going to hurt you. In moderation most things are OK.

Actually, one doughnut contains a significantly larger amount of calories than a 20oz Coke, but don’t let facts get in the way of you smearing that 60oz omelet around in your own idiot face, Bloomies.

“If anything in moderation works for doughnuts — why not with soft drinks?” Lauer asked, interrupting.

“That is exactly what we’re trying to do with soft drinks — is get you to drink in moderation,” Bloomberg replied. “Instead of the big 32-ounce, get two 16-ounces if you want. But history shows, all the tests show, what you’ll do is you’ll probably only drink one.”

“Get you to” being another way of saying “force you to”, to which His Imperial Majesty only has this to say: We really don’t need anybody forcing us to do anything, you liver-spotted old waste of oxygen, as a matter of fact we resent it a great deal and, by the way, if finding ourself at the receiving end of force, we tend to reply with force. As is our right as a citizen of an at least once free nation.

Seriously, New Yawk? This is what you elect to hound, nanny and harass yourselves? You did this to yourselves voluntarily?

We’ll keep that in mind the next time one of you tries to propagate the notion of Noo Yawkers as tough, independent, never take bullshit from anybody tough guys.

And then we’ll laugh ourself half to death, but it will be worth the pain.

Thatisall.

    Just wait … if a stake isn’t driven through the heart of Odumbocare, this kind of shit will be coming out every day, from HHS. Us stupid peons don’t know how to take care of ourselves, so our benevolent masters in the government will protect us from ourselves.

    Okay. I hope all of you are sitting down.

    I’m sorry, but this is pure stupidity on wheels.

    While I am completely against drinking or eating ANYthing with high fructose corn syrup in place of sugar, I have to draw the line at mandating a fucking size limit on drinks as a means to …. (what?)

    They say there is nothing worse than a reformed smoker or drug addict, and I’ve been both. However, if you want to “smoke smoke smoke yourself to death” (there a a song reference for you) or pound yourself with drugs — that is and should be completely up to you. (Good Golly, there IS a friggin’ libertarian streak in me!) There should be NO time when the government tells you that you don’t have a right to slowly kill yourself.

    Just don’t drop dead on the street, okay? At least have the dignity and good manners to set up a disposal plan for yourself.

    That said, I miss the days when Coca Cola had actual cane sugar in it instead of high fructose corn syrup. You can still get Coca Cola in Mexico and Canada made with pure sugar. It is MUCH better, (unless you are diabetic, and then all bets are off)

    Fructose corn syrup is used for numerous other things besides a food additive though. That cell phone you use probably has more fructose in it than a sixteen ounce of cola.

    Yep. The first time I drank a Mexican Coke it was like a jump back in a time machine. I wish they would offer up Orange Crush made with sugar again.

    And, maybe they will when the government gets its big nose out of the market and lets sugar find an equilibrium price in the supply-demand curve all by its lonesome. Quit subsidizing sugar, corn, ethanol, and the lot. Let the market, not government bureaucrats sed the prices.

    Why does no one call them on the “public health” claim? The size of your soda is a private health issue. Sarin roiling out of the sewer grates is a public health issue.

    And that is exactly what happened. Corn growers pushed for the corn subsidies and pushed the meme that we needed a substitute for cane sugar because it benefits Castro.

    Cut out the subsidies. Bring back cane sugar!

    If you live in an area with a large Hispanic population, you can sometimes find the cane-sugar sweetened Coke at many markets…yes sir, a trip in the ‘way back machine’. Wish they carried the cane-sweetened Dr. Pepper too!

    I would much prefer to believe that this was some big practical joke. The idea that some politician somewhere would actually, earnestly advocate for a law governing the maximum size of a serving of a soft drink is more than stupid; it is a parody, a satire of stupidity. It is uber-stupid. Don’t suppose it’s occurred to him to do something about the state of fiscal, criminal, environmental and commercial affairs in the rapidly declining city he is responsible for?

    Does he imagine some historian of the future writing “…but the turning point came when Bloomberg forced people to stop buying large soft drinks. Unemployment dropped, tax revenues skyrocketed and violent crime all but disappeared. It was all good after that.”

    A large part of the problem is that we have too many “experts” telling us what’s good for us and what isn’t. Remember before “fats” were eliminated from our diets, and replaced with carbos? Carbs aren’t inherently bad; nothing really is inherently bad. BUT, that said, we need fats, such as those found in grass-fed beef. The fat helps slow down the absorption of SUGAR, thus reducing the chance for an insulin reaction.

    The other issue is diet pop. Ever notice how many overweight people drink diet pop? Studies posit that the problem with diet pop is that you get the “sweet” taste, which tells the brain that something sweet is coming. When it doesn’t, the body kicks into “craving carbs” gear…it HAS to get the sugar from somewhere.

    Ever since fats were labeled as bad, carbs replaced proteins, and high fructose corn syrup became a staple, Americans have gotten fatter and fatter. It used to be that “fat lady” was a freak in the circus. Now, she’s an everyday occurrence.

    But Skye, you are trying to shoot the messenger here. The fact is, these things ARE bad for us. The PROBLEM is that people like Bloombunnies and others are going the wrong way on this. The reason why high fuctose corn syrup is used in things like soft drinks is because the government has tilted the table in favor of corn by artificially putting a false price on sugar, corn, and other commodities. Hell, the government pays farmers (well big agro-businesses like ADM et al) NOT to grow certain crops in an effort to control prices.

    Imagine if sugar is back on par with everything else, and people started demanding a return to sugar in our colas. Sure, sugar has its own perils to people’s health, but sugar isn’t responsible for the rising obesity in Americans.

    We don’t have a CHOICE. We are captive to what is available to us. Poor people are even more exposed to the poorer choices of foods because it is cheaper for empty calories that products containing HFCS.

    But actions like Bloombunny’s is like trying to lock the barn door after the horse got out. It is a silly approach to a problem.

    Folks, there’s a perfectly logical reason Hizzoner is going after sodas and protecting donuts.

    If Bloomberg tried to make donuts illegal in NYC, the city unions would tar and feather him, with his police force leading the way.

    There is already a revolt about Herr Doomberg at the NYC City Council.

    Aside from the midget tyrant’s outrageous tactics to get a third term, he actually almost lost to Charles Barron. The other Dem candidate was Mark Green.

    So, all in all, our choices seem to be shingles of the eye, flaming gentile warts and gang ass rape with a flaming poker. <<

    Oh, and I was interested to see that in the TC Mits [The Common Man In The Streets] interview that NY 1 News did today, there was only one libturd who approved of this bullshit: Everyone else said WTF???

    Except Governor Cuomo, who lamely said, “I don’t see a problem with it. . . .” What a fucking maroon. BTW, Cuomo is trying to position himself as a moderate, reasonable democrat for 2016, but Do NOT be fooled. He’s a dyed-in-the-wool socialist hack, and was a ruthless knee-capper for his dad (and is cordially disliked by the other Dems for that reason).

    Insulin is what facilitates the absorption of sugar. The longer sugar sits around unabsorbed, the more likely it’s going to trigger insulin release.

    The other issue is diet pop. Ever notice how many overweight people drink diet pop?

    I’ve noticed FAR more of them drinking the calorie-laden sugared variety.

    Studies posit that the problem with diet pop is that you get the “sweet” taste, which tells the brain that something sweet is coming.

    …which technically is. But without all the empty calories of sugar! Again, this is one of those theories that sounds plausible until you really dig into it. Were it accurate, diet soda would trigger glycogen release and subsequent weight loss, as opposed to the supposed weight gain.

    I’m no more in favor of this dopey law than the next guy, but diet soda urban legends really flip my bits. Some broad on O’Reilly was spewing similar nonsense last night… it just made me hate Bloomberg even more.

    First, get rid of ALL subsidies on food. Let the market decide. How much money has gone to pay people to NOT grow tobacco?

    Second, the government takes an unconstitutional step like making itself arbiter of health care requirements, then starts banning shit because that unconstitutional step provides them a “compelling interest” in enacting legislation.

    What’s next? Non-tofu meat?

    I swear, these nanny-staters must have watched “Demolition Man” and thought it was a great society to force everyone to endure. I guess I’d be one of those guys living in the sewers.

    Actually they are starting to sell sodas made with sugar again. I know Mountain Dew and Coke are starting to sell cane sugar sodas in the US and there are a bunch of smaller outfits who use cane sugar rather than HFCS in drinks.
