Turn Down the Damn Music

Is there anything Mayor Mike doesn’t want to regulate? He’s like the most obnoxious version of Gladys Kravitz with the power to annoy the hell out of you no matter where you are in his city. His new target is on personal music players with headphones. Because, let’s face it, you can’t be trusted to make your own decisions on how loud you prefer your music that isn’t even disrupting anyone else.

Sebastian better watch his back for an assault on one of his other favorite hobbies – listening to music too loud. I’m always complaining about his music volume. However, unlike Mike Bloomberg, I have no desire whatsoever to have someone regulate or spend someone else’s money to nag him about how loud he plays it. I believe that Sebastian can make his own decisions about it, and I’ll get up and leave if I don’t like it.

    1. Pretty much, yeah.

      “The new players hold thousands of songs and have longer-life batteries, which results in more extended and high-volume listening, health experts said”

  1. Good. Maybe he can pile his billions into doing something equally useless like advocating for “quieter headphone” laws.

  2. Why does this effort require $250,000, regardless of whether it comes from public or private money? It’s absolutely free to post on Facebook. Why can’t mayor Mike just go on his earbud crusade on his own time on his own Facebook page?

  3. Normally I don’t care about “awareness campaigns” (as opposed to prohibitive legislation), but this is just another mark showing us who the country’s most notorious control freak is.

  4. “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” -C.S.Lewis
