From his crusades against ear buds, sodium levels in food donations to soup kitchens, big gulps, car idling, baby formula, alcohol, cigarettes, taxis, there may very well be no limits to what New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg seeks to regulate.
On his Monday evening broadcast, Glenn Beck blasted Bloomberg for his increasingly-intrusive Nanny State regulations intended to control just about every aspect of private citizens' lives.
"We are just forcing you to understand," Beck quipped before explaining why he believes the mayor's penchant for condescending to his own constituents is unparalleled.
For Bloomberg, government's "highest duty" is such intrusion.
According to Forbes, Bloomberg is the 13th richest person in the entire world. With a net worth of $27 billion, the New York mayor may just surpass George Soros in terms of his ability to impact people's lives with his monetary power and act as if he is "above the law."
According to Beck, Bloomberg tends not to practice what he preaches:
So is Bloomberg the most dangerous man in America? Beck says yes because his opinions and various crusades -- for instance, gun control -- are actually impacting Americans all across the country.
Beck took time to review the many ways in which one New York mayor is actually affecting the lives of people who do not live in his state. He marveled at the idea that someone "this arrogant and this rich" can actually silence millions of people.
"This is the progressive disease," Beck said. "This is not just about Big Gulps."
Regulation is something that, according to Bloomberg, "has to be forced." With his crusade to enhance gun control, the mayor is even reaching people as far away as California.
