The Wrap: From Bloomberg’s desire to ‘infringe on your freedom’ to gay marriage, the week that was
Question of the Day
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that there are times when an individual’s rights should be infringed upon, and the Obama administration came under fire as the Supreme Court heard arguments in landmark gay marriage cases.
On the international stage, North Korea’s Kim Jong Un vowed to strike Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Texas.
Here’s a recap, or wrap, on the week that was from The Washington Times:
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is vowing to hit specific points on America’s mainland: Washington, Los Angeles — and Austin, Texas.
He’s also promised to strike Hawaii, Guam and South Korea, Fox News reports.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Sunday: Sometimes government does know best. And in those cases, Americans should just cede their rights.
“I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom,” Mr. Bloomberg said, during an appearance on NBC. He made the statement during discussion of his soda ban — just shot down by the courts — and insistence that his fight to control sugary drink portion sizes in the city would go forth.
- Obama administration under fire in gay marriage arguments
Gay marriage is on trial but it was the Obama administration facing the heat as the Supreme Court began the second of two days of landmark oral arguments on the constitutionality of gay marriage.
Michael Moore said “fear and racism” fuels Americans’ insistence that the government uphold their Second Amendment rights to own firearms.
We’re “an afraid people, and we have been an afraid people for some time,” Mr. Moore said during a recent NBC broadcast, buttressing his statement with historical references to America’s treatment of blacks and Native Americans.
