Stupid Petty Tryant Alert

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the most dependable asshole in politics, is at it again.  This time, he wants to limit the amount of pain pills you're allowed to be dispensed - to keep criminals from stealing them.

Seriously, I'm Not Making This Up
“If you break a leg, you’re going to be in pain, nothing wrong with getting something that reduces the pain. But if you get 20 days worth of pills and you only need them three days, there’s 17 days sitting there. Invariably some of the kids are going to find them, or you’re going to take them and get you addicted.”
You insufferable, cretinous, petty tyrant!  You're a pathetic waste of flesh, blood and other people's oxygen.  What gives you the right to condemn other people to pain?  What gives you the right to pass judgement on people at all?  You get to be judge, jury and sentence people to pain?  

The medical side of this insane.  The war on pain medication (one case) has been going on for a long time.  Having sat with Mrs. Graybeard's general surgeon after her hernia surgery, and the orthopedic surgeons at other times, I know they are concerned people try to get by without pain medication too much as it is.  I know that they're concerned that the pain causes unhealthy blood pressure increases and more.  But even that isn't the point.

The point is that once again, innocent people suffer because criminals commit crimes.  Instead of going after criminals, as Bloomberg said in the same conference:
“You see there’s a lot more hold-ups of pharmacies, people getting held up as they walk out of pharmacies,” he explained. “What are they all about? They’re not trying to steal your shaving cream or toothpaste at the point of a gun. They want these drugs.”
First off, these cretins wouldn't be pointing a gun if your asinine "gun-free paradise" laws were working.  Second off, what makes you think this law will work considering how badly those laws work?  Finally, how about you pay your police to go after the people robbing the innocent?
We innocent people are getting pretty damned sick and tired of being asked to suffer because bad people do bad things.  How about you trouble the guilty and not the innocent for once?  Does it even occur to you once, for even a second, not to punish innocent people for the crimes of criminals? 

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."  C.S. Lewis

Amen. Most of the OTC medicines that worked for my chronic sinus problems have been taken off the market, and the very few that are left have to be signed for, thanks to assholes like him.

I really, really hope someone in NY will rid us of this meddlesome prick, if/when TSHTF.

If Bloomberg ever gets around to the brain transplant he apparently desparately needs, someone be sure to give him an ice pack and bite stick to help him cope during his recuperation.

What we really need now is a reliable authentic photo, possibly (but not necessarily) from a horse show, ideally (but not imperatively) appearing in the New York Post or the New York Daily News (or, for that matter, a birdcage liner such as the New York Times) of one (or both) of Bloomie's daughters, on a hot summer day, sipping a jumbo 32-ounce cup of soda.

Either that, or Emma and/or Georgina getting busted for snorting cocaine with one of the Kennedy brats.
