    You're not upset the people in New York support such stupidity?
    Of course not. Why would I be upset about the way they vote.?

    Americans do eat too much and drink too much sugary crap, but don't know if it is the government's job to change that.

    This will be as effective as Nancy Reagan's Just Say No campaign.

    Bloomberg is far more dangerous to the American people than soda.


    And just say no was more succsessful than you think. I read an article in harpers years ago that talked about how it actually made an impact.

    MORE than most people? Either you're in violation of the law or you're not. Either you buy 16oz+ sodas or you don't.

    Presumably for the same reason you'd be upset with Chicagoans voting that way.

    And don't pretend the reason is because it affects you personally. You already stated that you'd be upset if Chicagoans enacted a doggy seat belt law as in New Jersey - even though you already voluntarily comply.

    The fact is your problem with stupid laws that don't affect you in Chicago and your indifference to stupid laws that don't affect you in New York or New Jersey is inconsistent.

    Raping people takes away the freedom of the victim. Big, big difference. Government is there to ensure the liberty of all of us, not just the strongest.

    So are Obama and Romney. Personally I'd vote for Bloomberg before I voted for either of those two. Alas, I don't have that choice...

    YEs. If I currently drink more pops over 16 ounces, and such a law was passed, I would have ot do more to change my behavior than most. Ergo, I would be affected more.

    Either you're in violation of the law or you're not.
    What the hell are you talking about? You can't really be in violation of this law unless you sell pop over 16 oz.

    Either you buy 16oz+ sodas or you don't.
    I buy 3 one liter bottles of pop every morning (I only drink one liter at a time, so I keep the other two one-liter bottles in the fridge). That's a much higher rate than most people. I buy more pop in these serving sizes than other people, more often than other people do.

    I had no idea the concept of "more" was so complex.



    Presumably for the same reason you'd be upset with Chicagoans voting that way.
    If I live in Chicago, I wouldn't be living in New York.

    And don't pretend the reason is because it affects you personally.
    You don't think that the way those around you vote has an affect you personally? Where on Earth did you get that idea from? Do you think that laws passed in China would affect you perosnally if you lived in Georgia?

    You already stated that you'd be upset if Chicagoans enacted a doggy seat belt law as in New Jersey - even though you already voluntarily comply.
    Yes, because I'd be pissed off that those around me voted in people who passed such laws because there are so many things I consider to be far more important for my local legislators to be working on.

    fact is your problem with stupid laws that don't affect you in Chicago and your indifference to stupid laws that don't affect you in New York or New Jersey is inconsistent.
    It's only inconsistent if one absolutely rejects all reason and common sense.
