I’m bringing back the “KaibCast Week in Review” feature to the blog, so here it is:

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is hard at work fighting obesity. He’s fought hard against salt and trans fat. Now, he’s taking aim at sugar, because those stupid New Yorkers aren’t smart enough to make their own decisions.
New York City plans to enact a far-reaching ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks at restaurants, movie theaters and street carts, in the most ambitious effort yet by the Bloomberg administration to combat rising obesity.
The proposed ban would affect virtually the entire menu of popular sugary drinks found in delis, fast-food franchises and even sports arenas, from energy drinks to pre-sweetened iced teas. The sale of any cup or bottle of sweetened drink larger than 16 fluid ounces — about the size of a medium coffee, and smaller than a common soda bottle — would be prohibited under the first-in-the-nation plan, which could take effect as soon as next March…
“Obesity is a nationwide problem, and all over the United States, public health officials are wringing their hands saying, ‘Oh, this is terrible,’ ” Mr. Bloomberg said in an interview on Wednesday in the Governor’s Room at City Hall.
“New York City is not about wringing your hands; it’s about doing something,” he said. “I think that’s what the public wants the mayor to do.”
No Bloomberg, the public doesn’t want you to lecture them about health. Then again, they keep reelected you, so maybe they do want to have their lives completely run by the government.

The mature and responsible “Occupy” movement has so far done an effective job of spreading its message through the use of offbeat drum circles, incoherent chants, and illiterate signs.
Now the occupiers, who are already economically terrorizing the nation (lost business for establishments near the protests, higher security and sanitation costs for local governments, etc), have begun to physically terrorize hard-working Americans as well.
Every once in a while I receive an email from a reader who wishes that I’d be sodomized by a prison inmate. Others just call me names. Some do both. My most recent email is below.
In light of recent events, I’d like to look back to November of last year, around the time when the TSA began sexually assaulting Americans in the name of safety.
First, let me catch you up on recent events. A six-year-old girl was groped by the TSA and someone filmed the spectacle. She was clearly on the verge of crying, but also clearly not a dangerous terrorist. Why does the TSA grope little girls, when they probably just pat Muslims on the back to avoid discrimination lawsuits? I’m just asking questions here. I don’t pretend to have the solutions, but someone ought to ask these kinds of questions. Do you see the vermin in the mainstream media asking these questions? I didn’t think so.
After the jump, video of the groping, plus my original post from November 21st of last year.
Although this sounds a lot like the Bush-bin Laden link that 9/11 truthers have alleged, there is a convincing connection between President Obama and Libyan leader Col. Gaddafi. No one is implying that Obama is friends with Gaddafi, or that Obama is even sympathetic to him (although they both have huge egos), but there is just a few degrees of separation between them:
To a great many Americans, President Obama’s response to the Libyan crisis has been puzzling. First, dithering. No response. The White House claimed “scheduling problems” for the president’s no-show. Then, wimpy calls for Libyan government restraint and an end to the violence, never mentioning the “mad-dog” tyrant by name. Then, finally, following the lead of normally-reluctant-to-do-anything-whatsoever Europeans, Obama declared “time for Gaddafi to go.” Then, military moves with warships. Then, Secretary Clinton says we must wait for the UN and move only in an internationally coordinated way to aid anti-Gaddafi forces. Now, Obama’s director of national intelligence tells Congress (and the entire world) that Gaddafi will win and the rebels will lose.
Still, the blood flows at Gaddafi’s orders. News leaked out nearly two weeks ago that desperate rebels were begging the U.S. for military intervention. “Send Bush,” they pleaded!
Meanwhile, back at the White House, where the cowboy is no longer in charge, President Obama held a Motown soiree, danced the night away, and a day later served a sumptuous lunch to the nation’s governors while giving them lots of unasked-for advice. Instead of meeting reporters head-on to talk about the Libyan crisis, Obama sent out his new press secretary to fumble the ball. Then, Obama met with the president of Mexico, again, and, no doubt, offered to sue a couple more states. Obama took one question from the American press and it was something to do with an NFL union dispute. Now, the president is off on the campaign trail and planning his basketball party.
Philadelphia prosecutors said this morning they are considering seeking the death penalty against three others charged in the operation of Kermit Gosnell’s West Philadelphia abortion clinic.
Assistant District Attorneys Joanne Pescatore and Christine Wechsler confirmed that the death penalty is under review for former Gosnell employees Lynda Williams, 42, of Wilmington; Steven Massof, 48, of Pittsburgh; and Adrienne Moton, 33, of Upper Darby.
All three are accused of aiding Gosnell in seven abortions in which infants were born live and viable – and then allegedly killed by the 70-year-old physician.
