    Reading comprehension is a must. What do the words "If he keeps this crap up" say to you when you read it?

    No, you lied because you said "I live and work in and around NYC."

    You don't live in and around NYC. You live in Connecticut. You made the choice to live in a place different from where you work.





    And they made the chocie to work in a plac ewhere they do not have a right to have democratic legislative power.



    Then you lied when you said you live and work in and around NYC.



    It sucks for you that you chose to work in a place where you have no say in the local government.



    Then they need to vote his ass out next chance they can and put someone in who will rescind this stupid law, if it passes of course. If they are up in arms about it, though,m they should vote his ass out regardless of what happens.



    If they aren't being represented, then they need to do something about it. They can vote out Bloomberg as soon as possible. If they don't do that, then they are getting the representation they deserve and ask for.
    I feel the view you have is so narrow. Yes, the board of health was put in place by an elected official...not the people. It isn't transparent. It is six degrees away from the person you can hold responsible for passing the decision.

    I completely understand where I live. Beside the very distinct sign that says now entering New York when I go to work this whole conversation has nothing to do with where I choose to work or where I live.

    The whole point is that the people of NYC should feel violated. Violated by their local government when it over reached. They should vote their local government out, but I don't think the election issue is going to what size soft drinks are now available. The people will vote on taxes and bridges, and the government, the local government will have taken just a little freedom without a word.

    Is this the same argument you use for people who live in Virginia and working in DC or any other huge metropolitan area on a border?

    Absolutely. I developed the argument to apply it to myself when I lived in the burbs but worked in Chicago.

    I like it that **** travels uphill. that's how it should work. The person who makes the appointment should be held responsible for the actions of that appointee. You need to have competent people in the position that appoints said people.

    ... I choose to work or where I live.

    Who the hell are you to tell them what they should or should not feel?

    It says you don't have a real argument connecting a ban on large sugary drinks in certain locations and the end of tourism to the largest hub of western culture, financial power, and foreign diplomacy in the world.

    It will prevent me if it goes into my area. See the idea is to stop something from coming into your/my area before it gets there. How is this done? By pointing it out when it happens in other areas and by showing how it could affect a person personally. In this case the person is me.

    Use to be my state didn't have laws against smoking in private establishments. Washington State did though. Guess what...we now have a law against smoking in private establishments.

    Applying something to oneself is a perfectly legitimate debate tactic.

    The arguement I am making is that the people of New York City are having their freedom's restricted by an unelected, however appointed, board. This is wrong. That is my point.

    The rest of the stuff in your posts is off topic.
