    Well it sounds like in this case, unlike his crusade against large sodas, it is only an information campaign. I don't think that is an intrusion on personal rights.

    Good thing we have the government to keep us safe from earbuds, baby formula and 7 year olds with Pop Tarts.

    Re: ear buds

    i saw in the article that he is doing an awareness campaign. is he also trying to ban something through legislation again?

    needless to say, i'm not a fan of Bloomberg. he comes off as a nanny plutocrat.

    Having different laws in every state for common products is getting way out of hand. Not only custom motor fuel blends, soda container sizes, headphones, radar detectors and who knows what things are illegal now or "CA ONLY" spec, like motorcycles, lawn equipment and cars. Seems as if you may soon travel out of state and get arrested for having an illegal toothbrush. Stop the madness! We will soon need national laws to require these weird state laws are posted at all state lines. Ignorance of the law is no excuse, but laws of the ignorant are popping up everywhere!

    Funny that you should mention ignorance of the law

    Bloomberg isn't proposing any new laws concerning ear buds. He's only running a campaign to warn people of the risks associated with listening to loud music on earbuds

    The word "right" gets thrown around a lot. To the point that it has become nauseating when improperly used. As stupid as every crusade Bloomberg undertakes happens to be (this included), ear bud headphones aren't a right. He isn't even trying to ban anything for once.

    All of that said, why anyone would step foot in NYC, let alone live there, is a mystery to me.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I resent any and all public officials telling me what is in my best interest. The same people who tell us not to smoke, drink or take drugs quite happily send us marching off to war.
