    It does sometimes come from the left (ex union busting), but with far less frequency

    This is a joke regulation. They are taking away businesses rights to conduct business. They are taking away a individuals personal choice.

    I've never really sat down and thought about the difference in frequency, to be honest. I know that I do tend to see more victim mentality stuff coming from the right as of late, and that usually, but not always, coincides with some kind of argument about imaginary rights being violated.

    False on both counts.

    A business can't sell an item they use to sell. A person can't buy an item they use to buy.

    Neither of those things are rights.

    It's a ridiculous proposal. It doesn't even solve a problem. In fact, it will just create more garbage as it will double the amount given that people will be buying two 16 oz cups as opposed to one 32 oz cup.

    What if the town mandated everyone wear pink. Then the people would not have the right to choose what they wore. In this case by removing an object from the shelves, people are losing the right to buy that item. When did a big gulp become a controlled substance?
