People say this is an affront to their rights but hooray for govt in its
regulation of stupidity.
So much for land of the free. Why doesn't New York work on banning drugs.
They are much more destructive to an individual that sugar. At least if your fat
you can diet.
@Johnny TriumphAs long as we're regulating stupidity,
let's ban alcohol sales. Ounce for ounce, beer has more calories than
soda.While we're at it, here's a list of other foods that
have more calories than soda:- Breads, pastas, cereals- Anything
alcoholic- Beef- Pork- Coffee- Everything on every fast
food menu- Most everything on every sit-down restaurant menuI'm no fan of soda but the idea of banning it while not banning these
other things seems like a double standard. If NYC wants to ban everything that
makes us fat, they will have to ban everything but salad...and don't even
think about putting any dressing on it because almost every salad dressing has
more calories than soda too.
Government regulating stupidity. Isn't that an oxymoron?
only in nyc. they love the government to tell them what to do. glad it is in my
holy smokes Sir robin said something I agree with! I must be getting
ill.Seriously though, NYC is a liberal city, "nudging" their way toward
more govt control in our lives. Mourn the loss of our freedom. Soda will be just
the beginning.Socialists and progressives make me sick.
So did this go up for a vote? Did New Yorkers actually get a say in this?
Does Bloomberg really have nothing better to worry about? Then again, the
people get the leadership they deserve.
This is what happens when a democrat changes party to be a republican.
Could I still get a 44 oz Diet Pepsi?
( I feel kind of weird, I'm the only one who agrees with the mayor!) Well,
judge me if you wish, but I say. . . " Good job Mayor Michael
