    The board may supervise and regulate the city's food supply when it affects public health, but the City Charter clearly outlines when such steps may be taken: According to Judge Tingling, the city must face imminent danger due to disease.

    "That has not been demonstrated," he wrote.

    Judge Tingling also suggested that Mr. Bloomberg overstepped his powers by bringing the sugary drink rules before the Board of Health, which is solely appointed by him. The City Council, he wrote, is the legislative body "and it alone has the authority to legislate as the board seeks to do here."


    It's also good to know that Bloomberg would overstep his bounds.....especially if he decides to run for the Presidency.

    So Bloomberg isn't the Lord over NYC after all.

    Now if we can get him out of other states' elections.....We can send him out to Pasture. Since he likes California so much I was thinking maybe Death Valley!

    Re: NY judge halts Bloomberg ban on large sugary drinks

    OK, so New York's Mayor Bloomberg issues an edict that bans large sodas. Today a court struck it down. Bloomberg is appealing. This will probably end up in the Supreme Court. Now, some people might take one side or the other, either believing that the government should help save people's lives, or that the government should just butt out. Meanwhile, millions of dollars will be wasted as this case progresses through the courts.

    So, first let me ask you - Should the government exercise a little control, or should the government butt out? That is the question everybody is asking, but it's the wrong question. The right question is asked when people use simple logic, and the question is this:

    Assuming that Bloomberg prevails in court, and people are not allowed to buy a large drink, what will people do?

    The answer is simple. They will buy 2 small drinks.

    Mayor Bloomberg - You are a ****ing idiot.

    Thank God! Bloomberg's nanny-isms are getting out of control.
    I agree. No government has the right or power to tell me what I can't eat or drink. But what was really stupid about Bloomberg's directive, was one could get all the refills you wanted.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
