Honestly, Nanny Bloomberg could lead a fly out of a bag of sh*t even if the bag was open.  It does not surprise me he’s doing a lousy job at taking care of storm victims in his state.  Denying your citizens a large sugary drink isn’t exactly leadership when it encroaches on their freedoms.  Trying to force your constituents loose weight encroaches on their freedom of choice and there is absolutely no excuse good enough to explain yourself.  Making you loose weight is not a valid function of the government but a very good example of a government reaching into your freedom and denying you any of it.
