    In my opinion, that's a far dumber law than this one, and that's saying a lot. And I actually do use a doggy seat belt for my dog.

    If NJ passes it, though, more power to them.

    What would it take for Tucker case to take up arms? Soda? Dog restraints? Smoking? Where does tucker case think the state has no business in the lives of individuals such as in these cases?



    Seriously it's absurd, it's not the business of the governments to limit my purchase of a legal product, it wasn't when they banned transfats, nor would it be with salt, nor is it with soda (which I don't drink)... It's the ultimate statists wet dream, if you follow the history of this douchebag, you can see he is nothing more than a tyrant king.


    a pox upon his house.

    Make any of those things federal laws and I get pissed. I get pissed when the federal government usurps the power of State and local rights for pretty much any non-human rights issue (basic civil rights).

    Also, I get pissed off when **** like that passes here in Chicago and Illinois, but that's because the idiots around me keep voting for assholes.

    Why would it upset you if people in Chicago enacted a similar soda law? Do Chicagoans not also have a right to enact local morality-based laws via voting?

    Of course we do. That's why I would be upset. I'd hope that those around me wouldn't support such stupid legislation by voting for assholes, but they do time and time again, and I get over it.

    But you don't drink 32oz sodas, do you?

    (ie, the same law in Chicago wouldn't affect you personally any more than the law in New York does)

    You're not upset the people in New York support such stupidity?

    Haven't read through the 49 pages of this thread but Stephen Colbert made the funniest assessment of this... talking about how insane it would be to substitute having two smaller drinks instead because he wouldn't know where to insert the second straw.

    Here's the depressing thing:

    No matter who you vote for some stupid crap will get passed.
