    There wouldn't be legislation.

    What's a "neutral source?"

    Also, it's not an editorial.

    Then how is it law? How would it be enforced? What exactly is it that is being enforced? Can you link me to the primary document or a secondary source explaining it that isn't one of the two editorials already cited in this thread?

    Bloomberg is the about the best example of a perfertly rotten super rich guy who in unlimited arrogance and narcissm sees his superior-human role as controlling all us pathetic stupid little people. He also is horrific bigot and manipulator. I count him as one of the worse people in the country.

    Hey, Bloomberg, here's a clue. Your worrying about everyone else's health isn't going to cure your own fear of death.

    It's not law, it's Bloomberg's choice. He has authority on the matter, he doesn't need legislation.

    What exactly is it that is being enforced?
    The article states it's policy. This doesn't need legislation. It's the same reason Obama can just declare illegal immigrants won't be prosecuted.

    Can you link me to the primary document or a secondary source explaining it that isn't one of the two editorials already cited in this thread?
    Let me see. It's difficult to find documentation for things like this because it doesn't need to go through the same processes as a legislative action.

    I literally can't find anything else on this. I even found blogs on HuffPo whining about this but they all link back to these same two articles.

    EDIT: This Daily Caller article:

    http://dailycaller.com/2012/03/21/ny...ks-volunteers/

    References a "document":

    “When news of this broke this week, the mayor’s office back-peddled and said there had always been a ban on food donations to the shelters for ‘food safety’ reasons,” Stier said. “But the ban didn’t start until the document was circulated by the interagency task force — led by the mayor’s office — on food donations to shelters. What this is really about is that the government wants to replace charities. There’s a turf battle. The government has the force of law to prevent private charities from doing charitable works. “

    Any idea what that document is?

    Bloomberg The Corrupt

    Michael Bloomberg is the most corrupt politician New York has seen in our generation.Ē

    Isnít it about time that someone said that? Well, I just did.

    Hyperbole?

    In the past eight years Bloomberg has paid millions of dollars to the Republican Party and ended up with its ballot line three times. He did the same with the Independence Party, which also received sole source contracts from the Bloomberg administration. As far as I know, these contracts have never been questioned, let alone investigated. Is nobody interested? Taxpayer money aside, Bloomberg simply says:

    Itís my money and I can spend it any way I want. And itís all legal. And youíre a disgrace to even question it. I stand for progress, not politics.

    Giving public officials cash in exchange for favorable government action is of course a crime. Granted, the real estate lobby, the hedge fund operators, the predatory equity crowd, and to be bipartisan about it, the trial lawyers do it all the time. If the exchange or the promise is explicit and can be proved, people go to jail. But the quid quo pro is rarely contemporaneous. Instead, the players carry around ledgers in their heads, political due bills. But itís corrupt and everyone knows it. Itís just that the beneficiaries have made so much of it legal.

    I didn't question anything, I asked for a less biased source or link to relevant legislation. Can you provide it?

    Perhaps you can; I certainly can't find anything on this other than the two articles and a million links to them. Isn't that strange?
    Perhaps you can issue a list of acceptable sources. It might make the "proper" disclosure a bit less complicated.

    Hang on, let me type something up and post it to my blog and link to it and when you ask for a more reliable source whine and moan about how I need a list of what sources are "acceptable" to you.
