    Bloonberg Bans Food Donations To Homeless Because He Can't Count The Salt Content

    Hard to swallow: Bloomberg bans food donations to homeless shelters

    Mayor Michael Bloomberg in March instituted a ban on food donations to homeless shelters. No, not because of food contamination, but because the city can’t properly assess salt, fat and fiber in donated food and thereby ensure starving people are getting the optimal levels of nutrition.

    Being starving and homeless is no excuse for poor eating habits.

    Well that makes sense. I mean, clearly if we can't ensure optimal nutrition, it'd be better if they all just starve to death.

    Maybe they would like that fat content because they are starving.....

    I can't find a neutral source to this. It all cites back to a Fox News article by Jeff Stier and a CBS local editorial about it. Anyone have an actual source about this?

    Yes, that is the CBS local editorial to which I was referring. How about a neutral source or link to the relevant legislation instead of these two unsourced and biased articles?

    Yup, this is the mayor that can't remove the snow, but he has time to wage war on Super Slurpies. The same guy who flies to his second home in the Bahamas every weekend, and tells the great unwashed masses that they shouldn't drive cars or live in single-family homes.

    That's not governance, it's animal husbandry. And the people who vote for him (or his ilk) deserve what they get.

    CBS News NY is biased?

    Hey man believe what you want. It's not my job to convince you of anything. You want to live in a different reality? That's your right.

    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.

    An editorial that starts with "Bloomberg strikes again" is inherently biased, yes.

    and you question this?
    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?
