    Comrade Bloomberg's babysitting tactic has thankfully been overturned.... For once, common sense has prevailed..
    Take note of this moment, because you're likely not to see another act of common sense come from the courts from some time ... Enjoy

    Judge tosses NYC's planned ban on large sugary drinks

    A judge on Monday invalidated New York City's plan to ban large sugary drinks from restaurants and other eateries, one day before the new law was to take effect.

    State Supreme Court Justice Milton Tingling in Manhattan ruled the new regulation was "arbitrary and capricious" and declared it invalid, after the American Beverage Association and other business groups had sued the city challenging the ban.

    Mayor Michael Bloomberg had touted the ban as a way to reduce obesity. But beverage manufacturers and business groups had called the law an illegal overreach that would infringe upon consumers' personal liberty.

    His show is the best and should be on CBS, ABC or NBC prime time but we all know that will never happen. Have you ever read his books? Very good reading.
