As for the rest, you're right. This proposed law isn't going to accomplish much, if anything. You can't legislate positive choices.
Putting calorie counts right on the menu is a much better idea. Applebe's started doing that here, and holy crap, some of the entres I used to like have a whole day's allotment of calories or more!
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
Oh, to own a convenience store just on the other side of the NYC border. They're going to make a mint on people coming outside the city to buy drinks now. I wonder how long until the owners of all the supermarkets, bodegas, etc.... in New York City rise up in revolt.
Bloomberg is a big government statist criminal, **** him. May he slip and drop his junk on the third rail.
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Government does something I don't like, must be them liberals!
One of you will end up here next!
Govt is saying we are too stupid to make our own choices. Sadly (as a whole) Americans are proving them right every chance we get. I don't agree with it however. Government doesn't and shouldn't have that authority. I find it funny however that you want to target liberals in the OP when it seems to me conservatives are the one more often fighting to keep things restricted (marijuana for one example).
