    They have to change the name to Apple, because nothing big is allowed anymore.

    Would you react the same way to an indoor smoking ban?
    Smoking causes harm to people that aren't smoking, big difference.

    Yes, most would also laugh at such a ban on indoor smoking:

    "You can smoke cigarettes that are four inches in length or less - any cigarette longer than that promotes cancer and is strictly prohibited. We're not going to stop you from smoking a second or third cigarette, but those, too, have to be four inches in length or less. You may purchase a pack of individually rolled cigarettes, but bulk "roll your own" tobacco is now prohibited when sold in any quantity above what would fill a four inch cigarette..."

    Re: New York Plans to Ban Sale of Big Sizes of Sugary Drinks

    in the food stamp thread i was absolutely opposed to allowing food stamp recipients to use taxpayer funds to purchase such junk foods

    but i find it a true nanny state which would prevent individuals from buying junk food with their own money

    and i notice bloomberg did not seek to have high fat/high cholesterol steaks off the menu
    cheesy, caloric pizzas are still to be sold
    as are mixed drinks, wine and beer

    why is he so selective regarding the prohibition of foods that are not good for you to consume
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    Haha didn't catch that the first time:
    • Sugary soda: BAD
    • Unsweetened 51% Dairy-based Lattes: BAD
    • Sugary, 90% Dairy-based Milkshakes: NO PROBLEMO!

    Hell yes. Indoor smoking bans are bull**** as well.

    Because there's really no way to define "junk food" - so they just come up with a random list of items that look/sound dangerous. It's the same sort of thinking that brought us the "assault weapons ban."
