Mommy Bloomberg At it Again-Renews His War on Salt

New York’s Mayor Mommy is at it again. First it was smoking, then it was triglycerides, big sodas and baby formula.  Lets face it the guy who believes in abortion because government has no right to make decisions about a woman’s body is sure making lots of decisions about the bodies of both genders.

Yesterday, the emperor of all we eat and warrior against the second amendment renewed his fight against one of the worlds great evils SALT. He announced that his effort to strong-arm food marketers and retailers into reducing the amount of sodium they use by 25% by 2014 is on track.

Representatives from 7 of the 21 companies that “met one or more of their voluntary commitments to reduce sodium content in pre-packaged or restaurant foods” advanced by the National Salt Reduction Initiative stood behind the mayor at the City Hall press conference.

Among the success stories, by the Wall Street Journal:

Kraft Foods reduced sodium in the company’s Singles cheese slices by 18% per serving.

Subway reduced sodium in two of its most popular sandwiches, the Subway Club and the Italian B.M.T. [a personal favorite of the mayor’s, we learn], by more than 27%.


Unilever cut sodium in its “Ragu Old World Style Traditional” tomato sauce by 20% per serving.

    If he really cares he would ban all crime, disease, and poverty. Is it because he’s a hater and wants people to suffer and die?

    Bloomberg is nothing but a slimy, garden variety slug. I wish someone would dump a bucket full of salt on him so we can enjoy the pleasure of watching him shrivel up into a big booger.

    The last twelve months have medical studies showing that excess salt isn’t all that big a deal. No reason to cut back unless your doctor specifically says so.

    Of course the last twelve months have also shown that global warming isn’t real…

    Left Coast Dan beat me to it — all the latest studies show salt to have zero correlation to heart disease.

    The election is November and it’s a Democrat sandbox. Whichever candidate wins, New York loses.
