While Ben Bernanke shifted the printing presses into high gear, Nanny Bloomberg shifted state sponsored Nannyism into overdrive as well. As expected QE3 has been formally commenced and the New York City ban on huge soft drinks has been passed.

They are doomed to fail, because even when government really does know better than its citizens, there’s really nothing that can be done about it anyway. Whether its speeding, drugs, alcohol, saving money, spending money or any other personal choices, the individual is sovereign and responsible. Unfortunately, the current crop of world leaders will never understand this concept, let alone admit it.
