With all other big city problems having apparently been solved, the Mayor of Gotham is cracking down on an environmental scourge that he says “has no place in New York City.”
Thank God we have men like Mayor de Blasio to protect citizens from the serious threats posed by styrofoam.
“These products cause real environmental harm and have no place in New York City,” said de Blasio in a statement announcing the ban on Thursday. “We have better options, better alternatives, and if more cities across the country follow our lead and institute similar bans, those alternatives will soon become more plentiful and will cost less.”
The ban is set to take effect July 1.

On a more serious note. Like Obama, De Blasio has extensive ties to ACORN and has “a history of working with extremist activist groups to stir protests.”
