    Agreed. It's evidence, but not proof.

    As I said, neither of us could prove our positions are true. It's obviously a "matter of opinion", and not a "matter of fact".

    Your higher income is offset by a higher tax rate.
    No, it's not. Our income exceeds the avg by more than our tax rates do

    True. But evidence can cause one of us to change their opinion, if in fact that opinion was made in ignorance of the evidence, as mine was.

    Yes. I guess that sometimes, it's more useful to concentrate on areas of agreement than areas of disagreement. In this case, I think where we agree (ie that govt has had an effect on reducing the # of smokers) is the important point (though evidence might persuade me to change my opinion )

    I think Bloomberg was just preparing for the big pot legalization in NYC. He doesn't want the potheads with cottonmouth getting too fat!

    Two commonly ridiculed "junk" foods — the Doritos chip and the Taco Bell taco — are being rolled into one. In this case, one plus one might not equal two. For Taco Bell, it may equal millions of dollars in incremental sales. The year has hardly begun, but there's already industry chatter about the Doritos-laced taco emerging as one of the nation's top new products this year.

    Taco Bell comes out of its shell to ring in a new menu

    It's probably due to people waking up to the fact that cigarettes cause a host of diseases such as cancer, emphysema, heart disease, high blood pressure, and chronic bronchitis, that it stinks, is not really cool after all, and kills around a half million Americans every year.

    But, that's just a wild guess.

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



    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.





    If I live in Chicago, I wouldn't be living in New York.



    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?



    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.



    It's only inconsistent if one absolutely rejects all reason and common sense.
    You drink 3 liters of soda a day??????


    You know what? I was wrong. Bloomberg is right. Apparently we DO need to enact silly nanny state laws to protect people from their own stupidity....
