Noted Soda Banning Nanny Stater Celebrates National Donut Day

By Gary P Jackson

Try wrapping your head around this one. After lecturing New Yorkers on the evil of sodas over the size of 16oz, and how fat we are all becoming, New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg celebrates National Donut Day today:

At Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s press conference touting his efforts to stop the sale of large soft drinks in restaurants, one reporter in attendance brought up the interesting fact that his administration also supporting “National Donut Day” tomorrow and inquired as to whether that muddled the mayor’s message on the issue.

Indeed, at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow morning, Entenmann’s will be unveiling “Custom-made Entenmann’s large donuts, 1-foot in diameter” at Madison Square Park at the same time they unveil a “Proclamation Letter by Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The work of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene reflects the mayor’s public health agenda,” Deputy Mayor Linda Gibbs said about the possible donut conflict. “The message is that we will do what we need in our official capacity to protect the health of New Yorkers.”

The celebratory events, the naming days in honor of individuals or items, or frivolities that are fun and [bring] exceptional joy are quite distinct from a public health agenda,” she added.

  1. Jesus still is the light of the world

    Its all small steps and in intervals for Gov take over(socialism/communism) of people not to mention tests the waters to see what can be gotten away with and how to get away with it~ So I do not focus at all on the items being discussed I focus strictly on the intentions behind the ideas~ AC

  2. I guess one could say, with mild relief, that the Mayor of Palm Springs is ONLY a gay, married PC demonkrap who is mildly corrupt and a total bore. At least, HE stays out of people’s kitchens!!

      You’re lucky! Most democrats want to run every facet of everyone’s lives. Bloomberg is over the top crazy though. But so are the New Yorkers who voted for him.

    Hypocrites aren’t they. these liberals really need to hear themselves talk….what they say half the time is ludicris (sp). They are a sorry bunch of addle brained indivisuals. There’s a mental illness creeping into the Democratic party.
