    So why ban certain food products? If Prohibition didn't work for alcohol what in the hell makes you think this will work also?

    So now I'm not allowed to buy a big coke at the movies if I want one? What's next, my quarter pounded with cheese will be reduced to a sixteenth pounder?

    Here's your nanny state liberals love so much. "Gimme money, gimme healthcare, gimme all day to sit on my butt, and if I get fat eating value meals, it's the government's fault."

    Sad. Pathetic. Is this really what we want government doing?
    I wonder if that anti-American douchebag knows that a lot of natural fruit juices contain more calories and just as much sugar as sodas?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I am sure it has already been said but this is the dumbest idea ever! NY should get rid of their nanny state mayor as he came after the smokers and now the soda addicts: you are next! If you live in NY? Watch ya back for this joker.

    What the hell makes you think I support this ban? I've been pretty vocal about how stupid I think this proposal is.

    The main problem with this rule is that it's not equally applied. They aren't banning the sale of soda 16+oz throughout the city they are picking and choosing who wins and loses. That's a problem.
    I have a problem with King er uh Mayor Bloomberg and his personally appointed "court of advisers" er uh Board of health dictating er uh mandating rules to the people. No representation of the people at all. I don't suppose supporters of the ban have a problem with that as long as they get their way.
    From the ashes.

    This. The supporters will not care til it is personal to them and if they allow this to happen? Trust me there will come a time when it will become an issue in their own personal lives.

    First they came for the pot smokers, and I did nothing.

    Then they came for the tobacco smokers, and I did nothing.

    Then they came for the trans-fat eaters, and I did nothing.

    Then they came for the soda drinkers, and I did nothing.
