    Default Michael Bloomberg wants to ban cigarettes from public view.

    Why do they keep voting this asshole in? Is this guy just bored with his own life and therefore seeks to play daddy for everyone else? How can the folks up in New York not be tired of him already?

    I have no understanding how anyone can vote for that guy.

    I don't see a problem with "hiding" cigarettes. We've done it up here for years. It was weird at first, but now when I go somewhere that doesn't hide them it looks really strange.

    For as liberal as I can be on issues, this and the soda ban are just absolutely ridiculous. It doesn't benefit anybody, and people simply have the right to buy a big soda or smoke..... Though I do hate that Wal-Mart doesn't have smokers go to the side of the store.

    If the American people have become so weak minded that "seeing" cigarettes is offensive or causes uncontrollable urges to pick up the habit, we have bigger problems.

    And yeah, we have bigger problems.

    He's a fucking moron. Plain and simple.

    NYC only had 412 murders in 2012 down from 508 in 2011. I think he does a hell of a job. Gun control works lol.

    Default Jeremy Irons Slams Bloomberg "Nanny State"



     "He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    Research has proven that youth are less likely to smoke if they don't see them. Does Ontario not have this legislation yet? All of Western Canada has had it for years. I have no problems with it...except when I'm in a grocery store with a pharmacy...they're not allowed to sell tobacco products at all...

    For years, I agree with it on the smoking side. I used to work in a convenience store when they rolled out the changes so we're talking early-mid 90s.

    The soda pop idea is insane. Limiting the size of soda in certain places will solve nothing.
