Addled billionaire Mayor Bloomberg says he's entitled to 'infringe on your freedom,' and in certain cases rube Americans should just cede their rights

3/25/13, "NYC Mayor Bloomberg: Government has right to ‘infringe on your freedom’," Washington Times, C. Chumley

"New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Sunday: Sometimes government does know best. And in those cases, Americans should just cede their rights.

I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom,” Mr. Bloomberg said, during an appearance on NBC. He made the statement during discussion of his soda ban — just shot down by the courts — and insistence that his fight to control sugary drink portion sizes in the city would go forth."...


Ed. note: How do temporary politicians automatically become smarter than they were the day before they were elected and therefore can break laws?


We wrote a Declaration of Independence because of people like Bloomberg. Whether he's addled, sick or whatever, his money has bought him media adulation instead of skepticism. The people are therefore left defenseless against his mental illness:

Declaration of Independence:
  • "IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
  • When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them,
  • a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them
  • to the separation....
The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good....
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
  • For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
  • For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
  • For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
  • For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:...
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. 
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: 

Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.

A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may
  • define a Tyrant, is
  • unfit to be the ruler of a free people."...  
March 2011, "The Bloomberg Bubble Bursts" Commentary, Siegel and Stern

"In the narrative crafted by Michael Bloomberg’s public-relations team throughout the first nine years of his mayoralty, he was the fabulously successful businessman who saved New York’s economy after the 9/11 attacks and then went on to master urban governance without breaking a sweat. Along the way, we have been told relentlessly, Bloomberg became the nation’s leading education reformer, responsible for reducing by half the black-white achievement gap, while also launching lifesaving public-health and environmental initiatives."....


P.S. Please excuse bright white background behind part of this post. It was put there by my longtime hackers. It's appropriate they'd choose to deface a post about totalitarian maniacs since they identify deeply with such people. Free speech enrages them.
