    Trans fat foe Bloomberg seen munching Cheez-Its

    BY JUSTIN ROCKET SILVERMAN | amNewYork
    January 9, 2008

    They may be too unhealthy for regular New Yorkers to eat, but not so for Mayor Michael Bloomberg, apparently.

    After gaining national media attention for spearheading an almost total ban on trans fats in city restaurants starting last July, Bloomberg was photographed in this month's issue of Wired magazine munching on those very same dangerous fats.

    The photo, which accompanies a short Q&A about technology and politics, features Bloomberg at his City Hall desk, looking thoughtful and serious. Meanwhile, his right hand is seen almost absent-mindedly pulling a Cheez-It out of a single-serving bag of the crackers.

    Bloomberg on trans fats



    "You're getting an ingredient out that nobody is going to miss." September 2006, regarding the ban on trans fats



    "We're not trying to take away anybody's ability to go out and have the kind of food they want in the quantities they want, but we are trying to make that food safer. If we can do it without trans fats, you'll save ... a couple of hundred lives a year in New York City." December 2006



    "No trans fats whatsoever." This week, when asked about the ingredients of three Junior's cheesecakes he brought to an Oklahoma political conference

    the original poster underscored the point of his opponents quite perfectly...

    people remain free to poison themselves with all the transfats they so desire... his push was towards restaurants who put them in their foods for unsuspecting patrons to consume...

    it's really very simple, despite the squawkings of chickenhawk righties who ironically ignore real civil liberties being infringed (for the sake of killing brown people and securing their oil without dissent here at home)...

    What you can't understand is the irony involved, nor the simple principle. I don't even really care that they banned transfat in foods, but when you begin to give an inch, you know what they end up taking.

    Heeeeeee's baaaaack! It looks like Mayor Transfats is back at it. Now he wants to ban salt. Nothing like a Billionare turned politician, who wants to tell everyone how to live, while altering the state constitution to allow him to run for a 3rd term, which whizzes on term limits. It couldn't happen to a nicer city. Hey, five bucks says the ban won't apply to luxury boxes in new stadiums. :D

    Mayor Bloomberg Declares War On ... Salt

    Hizzoner Calls On U.S. Manufacturers To Reduce Salt Content Until It Results In A 50 Percent Cut In 10 Years

    Citizens Revolt, Claim NYC Is Turning Into Nanny State Reporting

    Marcia Kramer NEW YORK (CBS) ―

    AP Singer Jimmy Buffett will never find his "lost shaker of salt" in New York City or any other place in the country if Mayor Michael Bloomberg has his way. The mayor is waging a war on salt and he wants food manufacturers and restaurants to join his army … or else.

    .............

    The city's plan is to get food manufacturers in the United States to agree to gradually start reducing salt content until it reaches a 50 percent cut in 10 years.

    .............

    Thomas Frieden, the city's health commissioner, said he wants manufacturers and restaurants to join the war on salt voluntarily. If they don't, the city could pass legislation making it the law.

    Wow, I mean, I'm just shocked I tell ya, just shocked! This can't be true. There's just no way that this billionaire arsewipe, who spent $100 million to secure a previously unconstitutional 3rd term, would ever be anything by exemplary when it comes to the lifestyle he imposes on others. No way I say! :rolleyes:

    This guy is such a loser arsewipe. Do as I say, not as I do.

    There is no labeling in restaurants while there is on packaged foods. That would appear to be, you know, an important distinction. I'm no Bloomberg fan, but this thread is more about OP's misunderstanding of the purpose of the ban than anything else.

    I Will Find Salt I Will Put It On My Sh!t Ball That I Have Fried In Lard And Will Enjoy It With My Piasano Wine Frig Bloomberg And All Of The Other Bastards Who Try To Control Our Lives.

    A Far More Sensible Cause For A$s Hole Bloomersberg To Take Up Would be For Him To Use His Influence To Try And Stop Horrible Nancy Pelosi From Sucking On Her False Teeth In Front Of America's News Camera's.

    If you did understand the issue then what in the world is the problem? Everybody in NYC can eat clearly labeled trans-fats. In fact, everybody in NYC can eat as many Cheetos as they can afford and stomach, including the mayor. Further, nobody in NYC can eat trans-fats in restaurants, including the mayor. Where exactly is the double standard? Oh, right. There is none.

    Bloomberg suck, but it's not because of trans-fats.

    NYC Mayor Bloomberg: 'Government’s Highest Duty' Is to Push 'Healthy' Foods


    By Eric Scheiner

    September 27, 2011

    (CNSNews.com) - During a United Nations General Assembly summit on non-communicable diseases -- a discussion that included diet and eating habits -- New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said “governments at all levels must make healthy solutions the default social option."

    Speaking on the government's role in diet and health last week, Bloomberg told the UN General Assembly, “There are powers only governments can exercise, policies only governments can mandate and enforce and results only governments can achieve. To halt the worldwide epidemic of non-communicable diseases, governments at all levels must make healthy solutions the default social option. That is ultimately government’s highest duty.”
