Bloomberg Strikes Again: NYC Bans Food Donations To The Homeless

Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s food police have struck again!

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 nazistyle, isnt’it? We have the same insane law in the Netherlands. If a meeting is canceled and I have 30 delicious peace of bread with salmon, cheese or anything special, and the meeting is canceled at the last minute, I’m not allowed to give the lovely food to the Salvation Army, or whatever organisation, because of the rediculious regulations in the Netherlands.

    So, instead of churches and other independent charities feeding the homeless, Bloomberg thinks the food many normally get out of a dumpster or no food at all will be more healthy for them? I was a homeless person many years ago, and I know what it feels like, to have to endure hunger pains, on top of the ache in your soul from an absence of hope. One day soon, I hope I get to see the people of New York storm this Nazi’s fancy mansion, grab him and hang his bltch ass from a tree.

    Oh, and as for a direct response to his no feeding people rule, everyone should put a sandwich in a sack, walk down a street in New York, and find someone less fortunate to give it to. Helping your fellow man/woman/child, is not only a good deed that will make you feel great, but it makes you a better person. And, if you do manage to incur the wrath of the jackboots and get a ticket, show it proudly to everyone you know, and tell them how pleased you are to be branded a criminal by the Fascist State.
