I suppose he's not going to give his secretary Bob Cratchet a Christmas bonus this year either...

@BiteMe-Fanboy: Except that thread is about overall rules and bans. This is about a specific one. Therefore, not the same thread.

Eh, you don't get it, do you? I was being a smartass. Because this ban on feeding homeless is stupid.

@BiteMe-Fanboy: *shrugged*

Considering the amount of people that pop into a thread just to post that? It's hard to tell, really.

Bloomberg is an idiot, I live here and believe me he doesn't know what he's doing. First he worries about soft drinks, then botched Sandy help now this...

Rudy was 100x better...then boobberg.

So is he going to arrest people that decide to donate food on their own? That is insanity!!

this is just plain wrong....homeless people eat garbage!!!! do you think they care that about the salt, fat, and fiber content of what they're eating??? NO! they're just happy to be eating something that didn't come from the dumpster

Salt isn't even what he thinks it is... He's probably thinking "oh boy, less salt, must be healthy", but the salt he's referring to is just NaCl, Sodium Chloride. Sea salt and/or other salts that have many other salts in them ("salt" is a chemical term, actually) are very healthy for humans, and are essential for brain function. Most people need more salts other than NaCl because table salt and the most common forms of salt used in processed foods are just NaCl, nothing more.

Basically:

The guy's dumber than a sack of salt.

That is horrible. It is also disgusting how the homeless are often assaulted by some Police Officers as well.

This is actually a manifestation of Social Darwinism. Social Darwinists seek to oppress the homeless and the poor. In other countries in the West, the homeless and the poor are actually treated somewhat better.

That's ridiculous.. Even if it wasn't the best quality of food (which it doesn't sound like) it's still better than no food. And the reasons stated are even more ridiculous:because it's policy? Then change the damn policy!

Good god that's just completely f^cked up.

Well that's brilliant thinking right there. Their reasoning as to why they can't continue to provide them with food donations is a sad and miserable excuse for laziness and disregard.

If I was homeless, I wouldnt give two sh!ts to the fat and salt content. I would be thankful just to be able to not starve to death.
