    Now, may I say something totally politically incorrect? (Moderators, shoot me down as soon as you have to).

    Here you have Mike Bloomberg, a good Jewish boy. Bright, diligent, driven - I wouldn't mind at all being reincarnated the next time around as a Jew - my current oversized blond Slavic-Germanic version is okay, but kinda sluggish, short on ambition, if you know what I mean...

    Now, imagine you are a good Jewish boy/girl (or Italian, for that matter) - and what your Mother says is the law. (Quick-n'-corny cultural reference: Steve Martin in the "Little Shop of Horrors" -" I am a dentist -and a success!")

    What do you think Mother was telling little Mickey? "Work hard". "Be inventive". " Never give up" (There you have the "Republican" side). And: 'Don't you EVER touch the stuff that's BAD for you: guns, porn, OVERSIZED SODA!!!"

    There you go.

    I have drank 64 oz's of soda at a sitting. I must admit I am adicted to Coca Cola. So much so that I only can use certain foutains and only drink the stuff with surger. I can get really thirsty. I dont normally. Normally I get 44 oz coca cola filed mostly with ice and that lasts me the day. I think there might be 12 ounces of soda in there at most. I drink the soda mostly and then let the ice melt off a bit and drink that and refresh it a bit with some bottled water toward the end of the day. Its that or iced coffee. Either works well.

    Free men don't stay free if they don't allow their fellow man to practice their freedom.

    Is there a name for this debate tactic of coming up with random examples?

    That is not a government issue.

    Actually I have seen that. Up close and personal. I prefer that state of affairs. Problems can be delt with and resolved quickly decisvely and permantately. I will freely admit there are downsides. Lots in fact. Government that is limited in scope would be preferable. But given a choice I prefer no government. Thats because I CAN take care of myself and mine. This government could go to hell and I would be just fine.

    Thank God! Bloomberg's nanny-isms are getting out of control.
    He needed to be knocked down a peg or two.
