    'Bloomberg the Banner', he's already banned trans fats in restaurants and none of us would have firearms if it were up to him; now he does this:

    "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."

    "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.

    Richter said he was stunned. He said his family has eaten the same food forever and flourished."

    In the late 1980s donations of food from receptions and banquets was banned from rescue missions here in Indy. In the past, surplus food from country clubs and downtown dinner clubs and fine restaurants was often donated to missions. Then, food that had been cooked--or even sliced ham or beef--could no longer be donated. Missions ended up buying food from wholesalers just as restaurants do in gallon cans and in frozen boxes. Some missions still get day-old bread and baked goods from grocery stores.

    Alcoholics who go into treatment programs sometimes get poor relief from township governments and if they have food stamps, the food stamps can be assigned to the mission. Most missions take government money and therefore can no longer force transients to listen to sermons so no one gets saved in missions anymore, as most churches cannot afford to run a mission on their own. In the old days, transients attended a service, ate a meal, took a shower and went to sleep. It was called soup, soap and Salvation.

    Liberals always find a way to force people to be dependent on government.
