Quote of the Day – Mayor Bloomberg Edition
“For the things that we run because of all sorts of safety reasons, we just have a policy it is my understanding of not taking donations,”
Mayor Bloomberg of New York City on why the city will not take donations of food for the homeless due to not knowing how much salt and fat it contains. The problem being it was his administration that made this rule. To add insult to injury what the person was donating were bagels. Not the healthiest of foods, but something that will help fill up a homeless person who may otherwise go hungry. Much better to give them nothing. Good idea.
This is what happens when you allow the government to make all your decisions for you. People didn’t stand up when he wanted to ban salt. It is only a matter of time before they start banning other foods.
