    Hmm.. what I find odd is that when I watched this on FOX news last week, the women were throwing a tizzy over government intrusion on their 44oz soda, but they have no problem with government intrusion on marriage and a woman's body.

    Wtf?! :: scratches head ::

    Ok, so the people of NY voted poorly...or not. Who am I to say? But the act that they are proposing limits choices. That is what is wrong here.

    The way I see it, "soda" isn't what's making people fat...poor choices are. This is taking personal responsibility away from people. It's like blaming cheeseburgers for being over weight when in reality, you dont HAVE to eat cheeseburgers.

    In an effort to curb smoking, Washington State voters approved a tax on cigarettes(28 bucks a carton)...if people want to smoke, they can pay a higher price for it and contribute to our local economy at the same time...our personal responsibility remains though...we get to decide what's best, or not best for us.


    *(However, I fully support our Government requiring schools to provide healthier lunches for our kids, as it's a different situation)

    That's right!! If I choose to rape a little girl, why do we need the govt to step in and stop me?

    And people who think realize that the mayor doesn't make the law

    When you do that, you're making a choice for the little girl as well.

    You should have the liberty to make your own choices as long as those choices don't impinge on someone else. Drink a barrel of soda every day, get fat, live with the results of your actions. Assault a child, you've hurt the child by your actions, and that's wrong.
