    Bully for you. Like I said, piss and moan all you want. Stop pretending it affects you, though. You are lying when you do that.

    @Tucker Case

    While I disagree with his stance, I don't think it's a strong argument against Blue_State to merely say that if you don't agree with the law, then move. People put up with laws they disagree with everywhere but are forced to cope with them or must attempt to change the law. I can see your point, that this isn't a proposed piece of federal legislation, but to many New Yorkers, especially those with a low income, we can assume that it might as well be.

    I disagree with him in that I think the market system is flawed and needs to be altered by the hand of government in order to address health concerns, among other things.

    Ummm you do know that in a society freedoms are often curtailed for the benefit of said society, right? You don't have the right to buy nuclear bombs. You don't have the right to buy dangerous materials. Dangerous goods are often removed from the shelves if they are found to be a threat to society. So, your viewpoint is a tad bit warped.

    Pissing and moaning? What are you reading? How am I lying? I live and work in and around NYC. Anything that happens in this unbelievably huge area of the world effects the outlying regions. In thoughts and actions. No one is pissing and moaning. As a libertarian, I choose freedom, not limitations.
    Sorry, but all freedoms should not be indulged. Businesses are concerned solely with generating wealth, public health be damned.

    if we adopted your analogy we should then conclude that small nuclear bombs could be available for purchase while larger ones could not

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    If that what you took from what I wrote, I must contend that you're being obtuse.

    don't believe so, actually
    under this proposed change
    the items can still be sold, only in smaller portions
    not true in your analogy
