    Very sneaky, Bloomberg.
    Au contraire, anyone who has ever bought a 32oz soda to quench the side effects of cottonmouth knows that 16oz of water is much more effective
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    No ****, significant intake of soda's is not healthy for you.

    The fact it's not healthy for you doesn't mean it's wise nor proper to give your local government the power to simply ban and restrict the sale of a legal substance to such a degree.

    Nobody is banning a legal substance; they are just limiting the amounts sold to discourage the bulk-sales marketing technique. As stated, a consumption tax would have been preferable (IMO), but something is better than nothing.

    What I find amazing is how people can be outraged by NY banning the sale of pop over 16oz AND be outraged by NY decriminalizing marijuana possession.

    So they should be outraged at neither?

    I find it amazing how the tyrant king has no problem being a raging hypocrite.

    With all the smoking bans i guess its a moot point.

    Or they can be outraged by one and fine with the other.


    Being outraged at both is what doesn't make any logical sense.

    It's not hypocritical if the impetus for both laws is to minimize government expenditures associated with these things.

    From a purely political point, you have a good point. How about from a law enforcement point, are they both equal? How many crimes has a Big Gulp caused? Just saying.
