Judge Halts Bloomberg’s Loony Soda Ban: ‘Arbitrary and capricious’

Posted by on Mar 11, 2013 at 3:26 pm

Arbitrary, capricious and downright stupid to boot.

A state judge on Monday stopped Mayor Bloomberg’s administration from banning New York City restaurants and other venues from selling large sugary drinks, a major defeat for the mayor who has made public a health initiatives a cornerstone of his tenure at city Hall.

The city is “enjoined and permanently restrained from implementing or enforcing the new regulations,” New York Supreme Court Judge Milton Tingling decided Monday.

The regulations are “fraught with arbitrary and capricious consequences,” the judge wrote. “The simple reading of the rule leads to the earlier acknowledged uneven enforcement even within a particular city block, much less the city as a whole….the loopholes in this rule effectively defeat the state purpose of the rule.”

Bloomberg said earlier today that the people who’ll get helped most by the city’s new soda restrictions will be the poor because they “don’t have the ability to take care of themselves as well” as the wealthy.

Sounds, um, racist to me, Mikey.

“If you go back to the ’20s, you see these pictures of the old robber barons with their big stomachs out to here. That was a sign of success,” Bloomberg said.

Those pictures were cartoons, for crying out loud. How out of touch is this guy?
