Ladies and gentlemen! A much needed victory for America and exceedingly large beverages everywhere!
And to think — the courts usually just spend their time making up their own bad laws… sometimes just winging it from what they see in other country’s newspapers… and striking down good ones! Well played Judge Tingling! (That’s his real name!)…
A state judge on Monday stopped Mayor Michael 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.
This is horrible though… without this to crusade for… what is Mayor Bloomberg going to do?! As mayor America’s largest city… he’ll probably just be left with protecting it, cleaning up from Superstorm Sandy, and trying to stimulate the economy. I mean… boredom will probably ensue. Priorities!
