One thing Americans are fed up with is those busybody, know-it-all pols and bureaucrats (who on average are worse role models than the average American family). Apparently, in a desparate fit to be relevant somehow, the Mayor of New York City has decided to waste time and money creating the “Large Sweet Drink Police Squad” (can’t wait to see this yawner on a major network this fall).
In other words, it may soon be time to say goodbye to those Big Gulps, those Slurpees or even Venti at Starbucks, CBS 2’s Derricke Dennis reported.
“That’s okay,” one person said.
No it’s not, according to Mayor Bloomberg, who is set to propose a ban on sugary drinks over 16 ounces everywhere, all across the city.
“I disagree with it, because it’s the right to choose. If you want to drink a Slurpee, you should be allowed to drink a Slurpee,” said Jamie Sawyer, a tourist from Oklahoma.
Ah, but you see Mayor Bloomberg is smarter than everyone else in New York City (yet he apparently doesn’t realize a 2-for-1 sale of 10 ounce drinks will do the job just fine). The man is superior, and you will obey is decrees!
We can only conclude there are no other pressing matters for the Mayor, the legislature and law enforcement than the scourge of the large Slurpee!
Pathetic. Someone show the man the exit.
