Now that New York City Mayor Bloomberg has decided he wants to tell people exactly how much soda or “sugary drinks” they can buy we need to stand up, as the people of Gonzales Texas did in 1835, and say “you want my soda? Then come and take it nanny staters”!
That’s why it’s time to start a postcard campaign. You can find “Come And Take It Nanny Staters!” postcards either here or here. Buy some. Tell the nanny staters exactly how you feel about their meddling (as politely as possible of course). Mail it off to them.
The real epidemic this country faces is most certainly not that we have too many choices but that we have too many bureaucrats doing everything in their power to take our choices away.
Here’s the address for Mayor Bloomberg’s office. Let him know how you feel.
Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg
New York, NY 10007
Once you’ve sent off your postcard make sure you grab some Come And Take It Nanny Staters stickers and plaster your town (with consent of whoever owns the property you’re putting them on obviously).
Take pictures of your postcard or where you put your stickers and submit them to us so we can share them with the world!
We need to make our voices heard now or we best not complain the next time some meddling bureaucrat snatches something out of our hands.
