There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Here is what I see happening. People will purchase a 16oz dring at a fast food place because the larger size is not an option. They will consume it, go up and refill it.
I got a better idea, hold people accountable for their own actions. I don't need the govt trying limit what I do.
I ride, and even though I live in a state with no helmet law, I still wear one because I don't want my head cracked like an egg if I dump it, and I didn't need Government to enforce that....I drive truck for a living, and always wear a seat belt....No one tells me to wear that either....Imagine that...Now how do you suppose that I did that all on my own?I'm a fan of motorcycle helmet laws and seatbelt laws as well.
So do ad campaigns, post calories, even a warning label I don't care, but I don't need government to do something stupid like this....Tell me, what prohibits me from buying 2 16oz. sodas? Anything?I also strongly dislike the image of America as a morbidly obese nation.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Beyond the nanny state issue -- is it not mindbogglingly stupid that lattes and cappuccino can be any size yet you can't have more than 16 oz of tea? ROFLMAO.
It's amazing how ****ing stupid and corrupt that state is.
Why can't they just live their own life and leave everyone else around them alone?
