What is it with power and food?
NYC’s Mayor Bloomberg believes he is the food police. And apparently Obama has to have a food taster before he can eat it.
“Unfortunately, you know, the president can’t,” said Collins when asked if Obama ate at the lunch meeting.
“Collins continued, “He honestly did look longingly at it, but apparently he has to have essentially a taster, and I pointed out to him that we were all tasters for him, that if the food had been poisoned all of us would have keeled over…”
It’s long been rumored that the Secret Service has someone taste the food for the commander-in-chief before he eats meals prepared outside of the White House, but it’s never been officially confirmed.
Obama shared another fear during the campaign that an immigrant could be harassed while taking a child for ice cream.
But now suddenly if you don’t have your papers and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you’re going to be harassed, that’s something that could potentially happen. — Obama
Obama likes his straw men with ice cream.
Bloomberg wants to regulate food like the gestapo, which tells me power is just as dangerous as crack addiction and far more seductive than alcoholism.
“We are moving forward immediately with our appeal,” said Michael A. Cardozo, corporation counsel of the city’s law department. “We believe the judge was wrong in rejecting this important public health initiative. We also feel he took an unduly narrow view of the Board of Health’s powers.”
Maybe Bloomy could just ban large cup holders.
Obama cannot trust anything being served until it is tasted first, and Bloomberg believes he needs to regulate what the people can have. And they both believe in severely regulating what people can do.
What is with their fear and obsession over food? I wonder if Bloomberg has a food taster?
Too Bad these people weren’t around to advise Adam and Eve, they could have saved us a whole lot of trouble. That puts it into perspective, they believe they are gods and they fear what people can do.
So what are you giving up for lent? How about obsessive, power-hungry politicians…or are we too addicted to them?
I scream, you scream, we scream for freedom.
