And On Top of It All, Nanny’s Aiming at the Wrong Culprit, Too

In response to Nanny Bloomberg’s defeat on the “soda ban,” Bob Gentile writes, “This guy offends me on so many levels I just don’t know where to start.  But for now I’ll say every time this moron (I don’t care how much money he’s made —  although I wonder how he was able to do it*) says ‘sugary drinks’, I go crazy.  We consumers should only be so lucky that soft drinks contained sugar.  … Gee, Mr. Mayor, did you ever look at  the chart on obesity?  Funny, if you chart obesity and chart the use of HFCS [high fructose corn syrup]  you’ll see a stunning parallel.  But why quibble about facts?” With further brilliance, Mr. Gentile points out that the misuse of the term “sugary drinks” is much like that of the word “democracy”: “The morons refer to America as a  ‘democracy’, yet the word can’t be found in the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, or Bill of Rights.”

*Pssst, Bob: I haven’t researched Nanny’s fortune, but I daresay if I did, I’d find every sort of subsidy and exploitation of the State’s power to keep competitors at bay and stifle freedom of contract, etc.
