    Oh come on.... Let me see the first politician that has ran, or is running on the pro ICBM ownership platform? Talk about a straw argument fail.....

    Look, the real question here is who in the hell is Bloomberg to decide for people what their purchasing choices of legally sold items are? Here is what the crux of the argument should be...

    Now Ditto, maybe you prefer to live in a place where dumb asses like Michael Bloomberg "force" you to do things, I don't. And having known you for quite a while now, at least virtually online, I don't really think you do either.

    If you read the rest of my posts, then you know I don't like the idea of government trying to force us to do things. The banning of large sodas is a bad idea.

    I just had to take a little stab at the idea that the Second Amendment only refers to guns. It was a pretty good joke, too, don't you think?

    Is that an ICBM? or are you just happy to see me?

    Well, yeah little rascal...I knew that, that is why I ended the post to you with what I did, I know that deep down you are more a moderate live and let live kind of person...

At some point, by making it hard enough to get legally, an alternate market will emerge to supply that want, beyond the reach of the law, such as we now see for marijuana. ;-)

    Stores don't have a right to sell whatever product they like.

    Do you know why grocery stores are not included (hint: it has to do with regulation of commerce)?

    I just quoted this bit because I found it hilarious. "It's totally not like a ban because it bans."

    If they want to mandate the wearing of pink in their own locale, why the **** should I give a ****? It's not like there are any human rights violations going on.

    Shouldn't people make their own choices for themselves? Why is it necessary for the government to regulate them? That is my issue with this entire thing. It wasn't a group that made the proposal, it was the mayor. A unelected board is going to make the decision. This is bad governing.
