A judge blocked the ridiculous soft drink and "sugary" drink limits imposed on NYC by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who recently bought the 2nd Congressional District seat of Illinois.
At the same time, Chicago Alderman Ed Burke, the wild spending, incompetent finance chairman is proposing an equally ridiculous ban for "energy drinks" for Chicago.
Now, we learn from sources that Aurora, Illinois, which under Mayor Tom Weisner, has been seeking to be "second to none" for corruption and wild spending is watching to see what happens with both ridiculous schemes before seeing if it's possible to do something similar.
Aurora's current wild spending, incompetent finance chairman, bumbling Bob O'Connor, who has made taxes "second to none" for taxpayers, reportedly said it's "something to look at" if it gets passed in Chicago and New York and "if that's what the mayor wants" since O'Connor, who after three decades is nothing more than a rubber-stamp.
Weisner's regime has a long history of big brother, "we know better" tactics, from seeking personal information of people who attend public meetings to scanning everyone's license plates to wanting auto repair shop owners to provide customer information to wanting to know every hotel guest's credit card information to refusal to provide public information unless they know who's who.
Carie Ergo, the spokesgirl for Aurora Mayor Tom Weisner, could not be reached to confirm or deny the schemes.
However, one viewer noted to us in an email that "as ridiculous as these bans would be, I do acknowledge there's an obesity problem in Aurora. Just go to a city council meeting, talk to the current Alderman of Ward 2 (Garza), Ward 5 (Peters), Ward 8 (Mervine) and Ward 10 (Elmore) and ask them."
Do YOU support limits or bans on soft drinks or energy drinks?
