First he cracked down on smoking, junk food, trans fats, salt and super-sized drinks, and now he is embarking on a new crusade: preventing New Yorkers from going deaf. Yes, that's right. He wants to set new limits on how high the volume can go on into your ear phones.
It's none of his fricking business. Surely it's not healthy to do any of these things, but not many people have stress free lives, and life is hard. To eat fun food, drink, and listen to loud music are things that may not be good for you, but they are among the few things we have control of. Many of us "choose" to do these things because they help to take the edge off life.
Surely Mayor Bloomberg sits in an air conditioned office as the titular head of New York, and obviously he has no stress. But just because he lives a perfect life doesn't mean the rest of us have to. Yes, it is true, that our Constitution is not great because it tells lawmakers what they can do, it's great because it tells lawmakers what they cannot do.
The Constitution prevents lawmakers from making any law that takes away the god given rights that people are born with, and the right to be stupid is among them. Yes, you have a right to be stupid. You have a right to eat junk on occasion or every day if you want. You have a Constitutional right to be stupid, but Bloomberg doesn't seem to care.
I pray every day that New Yorkers fire that bastard.
