    He can decide on what size drinks the public might have and yet he can't keep the streets clean in an emergency. Maybe he got his job confused with someone elses.

    well, it should, seeing how it's the Constitution of the United States.
    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.

    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?
    No, and no.

    Try selling or buying an ICBM and when you get thrown in jail, make sure you whine about how your rights are being violated

    Don't they have anything better to do?

    While it is simple to get around the ban, it's not as if people are clamoring for super-sized drinks. The reason why so many people buy them is because their packaged as a meal. People save money on their meal which comes with these large drinks, so they buy the mean, and drink what they paid for.

    Common sense suggests that if these super-sized drinks are no longer available, and the discounted meals comes with only a 16-oz drink, few people will buy an additional 16oz drink at the full price.

    Except the argument was not in referrence to that, but consumer grade products, etc.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    ICBM's are not "consumer grade" merely because the state has the right to regulate the marketplace.

    Actually, no, it shouldn't.

    What the Twenty-First Amendment primarily does is to repeal the Eighteenth Amendment. This doesn't mean that the federal government cannot ban alcohol, just that the one ban that was put into place by the Eighteenth Amendment is no longer in effect. It also certainly does nothing to prevent states or lower governments from banning or restricting alcohol; and in fact, it strengthens their power to do so.

    Section 1. The eighteenth article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.

    Section 2. The transportation or importation into any State, Territory, or possession of the United States for delivery or use therein of intoxicating liquors, in violation of the laws thereof, is hereby prohibited.

    Section 3. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by conventions in the several States, as provided in the Constitution, within seven years from the date of the submission hereof to the States by the Congress.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Which sucks because I can't buy alcohol on Sunday where I live, and that is just as stupid as this proposed ban.

    Not being able to have an ICBM is a clear violation of the Second Amendment.
