Deaf Jam: Bloomberg Now Tackling Loud Earbud Crisis

Posted by on Mar 06, 2013 at 7:45 am

With homelessness now at record levels in New York City, up 73% since the Emperor assumed the throne, it’s obvious why the nattering Nanny-Stater Mike Bloomberg would rather talk about anything else. He monitors what you eat, drink, think and now he’s coming after your earbuds.

Yes, really.

Now listen up, if you can.

Mayor Bloomberg — who has already cracked down on smoking, junk food, trans fats, salt and super-sized drinks — is embarking on a new crusade: preventing New Yorkers from going deaf.

Hizzoner’s health officials are planning a social-media campaign to warn young people about the risk of losing their hearing from listening to music at high volume on personal MP3 players, The Post has learned.

“With public and private support, a public-education campaign is being developed to raise awareness about safe use of personal music players . . . and risks of loud and long listening,” said Nancy Clark, the city Health Department’s assistant commissioner of environmental-disease prevention.

The campaign, which will cost $250,000, is being financed through a grant received from the Fund for Public Health, the Health Department’s fund-raising arm.

The Hearing Loss Prevention Media Campaign will target teens and young adults, conducting focus-group interviews and using social-media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Time to just tune this clown out now.

    Nanny Bloomberg is not a clown; he is a MONSTER.

    A man who wants 3 days of pain meds given to ER patients, regardless of the fact that those who need will NOT have adequate protection against pain and will NOT be able to see a doctor for follow-up or another prescription in 3 days time. The Monster said something to the effect of “tough shit, buck up”.

    Do you think this monster, if he broke a bone, would only get 3 days of pain meds?

    I”m aware (as an ER doc) how awful the opiate problem is, thank you, but this is a solution of an immoral monster.

    His wanting to meddle in others’ lives to the extent he does…monstrous. Food pantries returned food to donors because they didn’t have the nutrition information available, like a person who needs food to survive is going to worry about the carb/fat/salt content of a bagel (one of the foods returned that I read about). He and his bureaucrats….monsters, all.

    Clowns can sometimes be scary but are harmless otherwise, and we can choose to avoid the circus. Here, the monster butts into our lives and the only way to escape is uproot from NYC, not always easy for folks. Not as easy as avoiding the circus!

    Yes, some of his other directives are a bit more silly (snark) like the soda pop size bans etc. Just STUPID. But this is coming from a man who is no better than a dictator. Third term? No problem. Bought it. Trying to buy an election for a gun-control Dem in Chicago to replace Jesse Jackson Jr.

    A monster.

    He wants to continue having New Yorkers…and as in the Chicago story, and on a nationwide level, wants us all to be defenseless, even though his own police force can’t always shoot straight!

    And yes, finally, the homeless increase. Eh, why should anyone worry about that? A monster certainly doesn’t.

    Yes, the appellation will also belong to Obama, Holder and any in the Admin who would render us defenseless, advocate dictator powers, steal our monies, waste our monies, pass tens of thousands of regulatory statues that not only do not improve our lives but impoverish us, only so that Washington DC metro area is the richest area in the U.S., make it harder to start and stay in business unless a mega-sized company…I’m all for capitalism, but this is NOT capitalism, it’s mercantilism and fascism, when the large can destroy the small by govt. diktat (anyone who doesn’t believe this, listen to the execs of large “health care” corporations that run hospital chains…they were rewarded handsomely for supporting the truly reprehensible Obamacare and is the reason that you can’t find pricing for your hospital stay! Small doctors’ practices? Being swallowed or destroyed by these same chains).

    The Left is made up of moral monsters. Same jackasses now braying what a hero Chavez was, a man who stole billions from the poor he supposedly supported, in a country with one of the highest murder rates in the world and who can’t keep electricity on 24/7 in spite of immense oil wealth. Monsters supporting monsters.

    Hundreds of millions to Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood. In the meantime, Coptic Christians are murdered with impunity. Anyone on the Left care? (No, I don’t speak about liberal friends I have, who I think are grievously wrong but DO have good intentions. They are just deluded. But those on the Left, in power, are criminally immoral.

    Monsters, not clowns. I wish they were simply clowns.

    The above is not inclusive. I was also remembering Nanny B.’s response to his “subjects” on Staten Island who lost homes and possessions from Hurricane (or Storm, or whatever the official label was) Sandy. Just the other day they booed Bloomberg off a parade route there. Or, how about when Nanny couldn’t bother plowing the streets of snow a few years ago except for his privileged few?


    No, he’s not the worst monster we have as a politician….I was thinking the same of a “Fox contributor” who was on Hannity and said that we should teach men not to rape women instead of arming women (in response to the heinous monster in the Colorado State Senate who was responding to the rape victim who had left her gun in her car because she respected the laws of a gun-free zone at a university and for her troubles was brutally raped 50 yards from the campus police station, if I read correctly)….but this is only a pundit who has no control of our lives, unilike Nanny and Obama et al.
