“Proving it can ruin just about any good idea, the Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to ban the city’s medical marijuana dispensaries, and a North Carolina pol who claims baggy pants are “a part of a culture that breeds drug sales, drug addiction, crime, and murder” is itching to regulate precisely how much sag his constituents may bust (no more than three inches below the waist).
But this month we find the busiest of bodies in the nation’s Garden State:
Imagine getting pulled over for a seatbelt violation. Imagine it cost you $1,000 and six months in the clink. Imagine the cause of this was your failure to buckle up your pooch…”
Both dogs and their owners are bound to despise this ridiculous law, which has nothing to do with the safety of the pet and everything to do with controlling and relieving the masses of their hard-earned money.
The second place Nanny of the Month award goes across the river to America’s most-hated nanny, Michael Bloomberg, who straight off of his tyrannical tour of banning large sodas is now pushing for New York City hospitals to lock up the baby formula, an effort intended to nudge force new moms into breast-feeding their babies.
“Starting Sept. 3, the city will keep tabs on the number of bottles that participating hospitals stock and use — the most restrictive pro-breast-milk program in the nation.
Under the city Health Department’s voluntary Latch On NYC initiative, 27 of the city’s 40 hospitals have also agreed to give up swag bags sporting formula-company logos, toss out formula-branded tchotchkes like lanyards and mugs, and document a medical reason for every bottle that a newborn receives….
…With each bottle a mother requests and receives, she’ll also get a talking-to. Staffers will explain why she should offer the breast instead….”
As one person under the article commented,
“Let’s see, killing your baby is good, but bottle feeding is bad. Go figure. Maybe the left shoulld practice some consistency. If I should have a choice as to whether or not to have an abortion, I should certainly have the same unempeded choice as to whether I breast or bottle feed my baby. Get out of people’s lives Mr. Bloomberg, you are an A$$.”
It is only fair to disclose that New York City’s unemployment rate has been on the rise since March 2012. As of June 2012, NYC’s unemployment rate rose to a whopping 10.0% but what does Michael Bloomberg care?
In addition, common sense would dictate that Bloomberg not waste his time on nannying New Yorkers to death and be more concerned with the 672 shootings in New York City this year as of July 1, a 10.9 percent spike from the year before.
Like Obama, Bloomberg does not want to address the economy or the unemployment stats.
As for crime, Bloomberg will only discuss the matter in terms of disarming law-abiding citizens and/or suggesting that law enforcement go on strike until said law-abiding citizens beg to be disarmed.
