With the nightmare prospect of an antismoking president, Breitbart has a comprehensive takedown of Michael Bloomberg:
Nolte: The Fascist History of Tiny Tyrant Michael Bloomberg
He only wants to make the world a better place, you see.
He knows what’s best for you, and understands you’re either too stupid to know what’s best for you or too undisciplined to do what’s best for you, so he’s gonna take care of you by creating laws –lotsa, lotsa, lotsa, lotsa laws…
On paper, the 78-year-old Bloomberg has been all over the place… a businessman, a Republican, Independent, and finally a Democrat. But you don’t have to squint to see the one constant in Bloomberg’s life and career: he’s a busybody tyrant, a rabid authoritarian whose decades-long history portends a presidency filled by an egomaniac who will make no sacrifices for himself as he signs a flurry of executive orders and treaties that force the rest of us to sacrifice our guns, our air conditioners, our privacy, our meat, salt, and sugar; and if we’re of a certain age, our access to life-saving health care.
The NYC smoking ban gets mentioned:
No Smoking in Your Own Establishment
Like the proverbial boiling frog, people are actually okay with this now… They think it’s great no one can smoke in public buildings, in a workplace, bar, or restaurant.
As a non-smoker, I agree…
What I don’t like, though, is the government telling a property owner what he can do with his property. If the owner of a bar or restaurant wants to allow smoking, who is the government to outlaw it?
It’s an outrageous and obscene violation of property rights.
What’s more, Bloomberg banned smoking outdoors! In New York, you can no longer smoke in public places such as a beach or park.
Bloomberg did very badly in the Democrat debate on Wednesday. The other candidates tore strips off him:
And Hillary Clinton appears to be uninterested in the suggestion that she could be his vice-president.
