    I can think of 100,000,000 more apologies for Bloomberg;

    You know exactly how long you should hold your breath waiting for that, right? 😉

    Is it just me, or is Bloomers’ ‘apology’ more of a ‘I’m sorry people didn’t like it but it worked’-ology? I read ‘Sorry, NOT sorry’.

    Then there’s Bloomberg’s “Portion Cap Rule,” banning “sugary drinks” of more than 16 oz.
    Down here, 32 oz. is a medium drink.

    Is this a trend? Yes, it is. I have been threatened with criminal prosecution for allegedly sending emails to persons in local government, the recipients of which deemed them harassing. I believe Frederick Douglass said you can always protest. Apparently not anymore.

    And, at a recent citizens group meeting, a city councilperson stormed out, saying “I didn’t come here to be insulted.” After a member of the public expressed his frustration with city legislation in, yes, unflattering terms.

    The notion that public officials have to accept criticism, as part of the office (i.e., “if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen”) has been abandoned.

    They have lost even the pretense of being public servants. They now believe themselves to be our masters, the ruling class. We the peons display disrespect to them at our peril.
