Trickle Down Tyranny

from: The Blaze

If NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s dream to limit the size of sodas and other sweetened drinks has made people in New York angry, how will citizens of one Massachusetts city react if their elected official block all of these drinks, large and small in the city’s restaurants? The City of Cambridge, Massachusetts (the home of Harvard & MIT) has proposed such a thing.

Tuesday, the Mayor’s office sent a policy order stating:

“That the City Manager be and hereby is requested to refer the matter of a ban on soda and sugar-sweetened beverages in restaurants to the Cambridge Public Health Department for a recommendation.”

Apparently the Mayor believes that the citizens of Cambridge, Massachusetts are incapable of limiting their intake of soft drinks or “sugar-sweetened” beverages. Therefore, the only way to stop what he sees as an “increased risk of obesity and diabetes” is to ban (what they believe to be) the culprits.

Here is the official proposal, as seen on the Cambridge home page:
