“Bloomberg Strikes Again: NYC Bans Food Donations To The Homeless”


Is he trying to starve New Yorkers, keep them healthy, or establish his control? I’d say the latter. CBS New York:

Outlawed are food donations to homeless shelters because the city can’t assess their salt, fat and fiber content, reports CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer.

Glenn Richter arrived at a West Side synagogue on Monday to collect surplus bagels — fresh nutritious bagels — to donate to the poor. However, under a new edict from Bloomberg’s food police he can no longer donate the food to city homeless shelters.

It’s the “no bagels for you” edict.

“I can’t give you something that’s a supplement to the food you already have? Sorry that’s wrong,” Richter said.

Richter has been collecting food from places like the Ohav Zedek synagogue and bringing it to homeless shelters for more than 20 years, but recently his donation, including a “cholent” or carrot stew, was turned away because the Bloomberg administration wants to monitor the salt, fat and fiber eaten by the homeless.”

    Seinfeld had an episode about this years ago; the “Muffin Bottoms” episode, if anyone remembers it.

    It was *satire* at that time, however.

    My friend who is a trucker and loads up in Philly or Jersey said the terminal is packed with semis full of food donations that aren’t moving because the people who are supposed to be dispersing them can’t handle it all and because of this.

    one trucker sat there for 2 waiting for his load (because he can’t afford not to)

    Even more stupidity from the fool who refused to allow the National Guard to aid NY City because he didn’t want anyone but NYC cops to have guns on the streets of NYC.

    And double stupid from the tool NY Gov Cuomo (Mr wonderful) who didn’t immediately send in guard troops over bloomie’s objections.

    I am reminded of a story told to me by a fellow submariner whose boat was in the shipyard for repairs.

    One night the boat caught on fire from welding work. The fire quickly went out of control and swept the forward compartments.

    The shipyard sent its fire department to fight the fire. The boat XO refused them entry because they were not on the ship’s access list.

    The CO arrived about 30 minutes into this clusterfu** and shi*canned the XO on the spot.

    Now, bloomie is the dumb as dirt XO, and Cuomo had the chance to be the swift acting CO. But … he is a leftard. And so the people of NYC and its environs still suffer … esp LI.

    I would say all this is un fuc*ing unbelievable. But then, we are in the age of obama.
