    Following the links back, it looks like the ultimate source of this story is...an op-ed piece in the New York Post. I don't see any substantiation for any of these claims.

    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.



    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.
    Perfect example. There is no basis for law by executive order - whether a mayor or president - but people accept it so it works.

    Alright, well, you're probably not going to get literal documentation because of the nature of policies like this. The best that can be done is a demonstration of Bloomberg addressing the issue. If its false Bloomberg should come forward and say so.

    This can't be a serious story. Someone tell me it's not.

    So we should just assume that a story whose source is solely two editorials is true until it is addressed and denied by Bloomberg?

    So you don't think any such commentary could be factual? Isn't that bias on your part, to reject the idea without further examination?

    I never said that. In fact, I withheld judgment and asked for additional sources to verify what was being asserted. Asserting that something is biased does not mean that it is necessarily false.

    On the contrary, I have been requesting further examination throughout this entire thread.

    The guy banned sodas bigger than 16oz and you question this? I'll stay on the side of reality. Ideology driven people do not operate in a box. Their perception of reality is the motivating factor in ALL decisions they make. Go ahead and give the man the benefit of the doubt because Obama and the Democrats told you Fox News lies to you and is evil. Good luck with that.
    The only thing the Libbos believe are WAPO, Daily KOS and Obama. There's no getting through to them. Anything news they don't agree with is automatically a lie.

    It's on Daily KOS. Nice try, though, as usual.
