    Attention all you nanny staters, this is your ideology at work:

    In a move that combines the mayor's affinity for overbearing health regulations with his controversial stance on homeless shelters already under fire from advocacy groups and City Council members, a new rule barring food donations to shelters is raising even more concern.

    CBS reports on the bizarre rule that turns away food, perhaps the most needed item for any shelter, because according to health officials, it's impossible to gauge the items' salt, fiber, and other nutritional stats.

    When asked about the contradictory stipulation, Bloomberg huffed, "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."

    Unfortunately, news of the rule is just another day in Bloomberg's "nanny-state." The mayor has been repeatedly criticized for his health initiatives, with many believing his well-intentioned moves to improve New Yorkers' health ultimately infringe upon basic rights. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1367542.html

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Looks like we need to set up a canned food underground railroad.
    Be Not Afraid.

    LMAO. You beat me to it.

    I just saw the "band" thing when I was browsing the index listing. Yeah, now I get it.

    Glad to see so many people never have a typo before. And glad to see no one cares about the oncoming nanny state.

    Lighten up Francis. It wasn't about you. And I voiced my concern in post 3. Sheesh.

    You think we're not aware of Bloomberg and his insanity regarding trans fat, salt, duck liver and big sodas? We've been railing against it since it started. If you really care about it, don't spend money there. Ever. Write a letter to every legislator in NY telling them the same.

    Yeah, like that will help. Nice strategy.
