Bucket-Sized Drinks ALLOWED In New York City Once Again!

Filed under: PolitikDietsFood

new york city drink size ban lifted restaurants businesses

We get it! We get what the goal was, it was just a bad idea!

You don't interfere with peoples' lives, trying to force them to get healthy! It's a personal decision, and if someone wants to go to town on a 128oz Dr. Pepper after a hard day's work ON THEIR CHEAT DAY, they should be allowed to in New York City!!

This is why INCENTIVES will always be better than a BAN! And the difference between this and smoking, for those of you with that in their mind, is that smoking hurts those around you as well — drinking a giant soda won't!

New York restaurants can continue selling large sugary drinks because an appeals court recognized that a lower court ruling was dead on! That ruling was that city's restrictions are "arbitrary and capricious," which is a very nice way of putting it!

Then they added that the city's Board of Health "failed to act within the bounds of its lawfully delegated authority" and things got a little bit frosty! Like an ice-cold 256oz Squirt! LOLz!

In essence, it was declared the regulation was a violation of the principle of separation of powers doctrine!

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, of course, disagreed with the decision because nobody in politics can EVER admit they're wrong! We're pretty sure they have to swear an oath to do so. Don't quote us on that though! Ha!

Here's what Ol' Bloomers had to say:

Police Possibly Injure Several Bystanders In Pursuit Of Empire Gunman

Filed under: Sad Sad

empire state building shooting

Here is a full recount of the Empire State Building shooting as we know thus far:

Jeffrey Johnson, a 56-year-old former employee (previously reported as 53) of Hazan Imports was laid off about a year ago.

Disgruntled and still upset, he came back a year after losing his job with the apparent intention of shooting a specific co-worker.

New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says Johnson successfully shot his co-worker in the head three times outside of the Empire State Building before fleeing the scene.

A construction worker spotted the suspect fleeing and alerted two uniformed police officers nearby who began to tail Johnson.

The suspect then turned and pulled a .45 caliber pistol on the two approaching police officers, who then opened fire on him.

Nine people were wounded or grazed by gunfire in the crossfire. The mayor and commissioner both said the wounded were possibly caught in the police officers' crossfires.

According to reports, the handgun the gunman had could only hold 8 bullets.

Mark Zuckerberg's Worth Drops BIG Time

Filed under: Business BlitzFacebook

Mark Zuckerbergs worth drops big time

Maybe taking Facebook public wasn't the best idea after all.

Since the initial public offering, the price of the company's stock has dropped dramatically. What started out as $38 a share is now just $27.24 (as of right now) and the company's worth has dropped by at least $25 billion!

Since Mark Zuckerberg's fortune is dependent on the stock's performance on the market, his worth has decreased by $5 billion. In fact, he's actually been knocked off of Bloomberg's list of top 40 billionaires worldwide.

As of May 18, the young entrepreneur was worth
