Mike Bloomberg: “I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom” | RedState

I would say that Mike Bloomberg has put his foot in his mouth but that would imply that he is even slightly concerned about his remark or meant it in any other way than it sounds.

“I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom,” Mr. Bloomberg said, during an appearance on NBC. He made the statement during discussion of his soda ban — just shot down by the courts — and insistence that his fight to control sugary drink portion sizes in the city would go forth.

Make special note of Bloomberg’s use of “we” and “you.” “We” is he and the other elites, unencumbered by such infringements since they are the ones that make the rules, not the ones that live by them.


The role of the Ruling Class is to rule.

The role of everybody else is to obey.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
