    Maybe I wasn't talking about you. Where did I mention your name, and did not Gipper mention apostrophe? Only one trying to insult someone's intelligence is you in your glib posts and him for bringing it up. Maybe next time I am typing fast and by accident type "than" instead of "then" you can be my grammar police. Sort of like another level of auto correct. Maybe you are too small of soul to correct me in private but if you want to shout it out in public and make me look stupid and get your kicks for being so blandly clever, go for it. I appreciate the free service.

    Get mad all you want. You're the one using terrible grammar while improperly using simple words in a shallow attempt to appear more fancy. You are right about one thing, though. The more of the story isn't to get more uppity. The moral is don't talk **** unless you can take the heat. Obviously, you can't.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Lol you think I'm mad. You don't have enough game. I've given in depth analysis of my positions. You are the one being grammar nazi. I have no clue what you are talking about trying to look fancy. Respond intelligently to my positions or stfu. If I leave this thread it will be because of boredom.

    Ooh got a grammar mistake. I think you mean "moral" of story. Also what am I right about? Weird grammar, where do I make this moral point. You are a hypocrite, a grammar nazi with not so good grammar himself. I admit I'm no grammar master, I just post on a political forum. I feel lame even acting like you in highlighting your tactics. It's about ideas not rhetorical games and image with me. Again debate my positions and stop with the attacks or STFU.

    Perhaps Bloomie will get inventive and take a page from Obama.

    You can buy that 32oz. beverage, but the City of New York will put an excise "tax" on the soda itself, leaving you with only 16 oz or less. This "tax" you pay at the fountain in the form of 16 oz. cups. You can buy 32, 64, 128 oz. cups of soda all you'd like, however the only portion which is yours after the soda "tax" will be 16 oz.

    There ya go Bloomie, may your tyrannical reign never be darkened again...

    This has been standard U.S. policy since the early 20th century, yet in this case Bloomberg is not prohibiting soft drinks.
    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.

Courts should not be wasting time righting the wrongs of old nannies trying to dictate private behavior. If this man still foolishly harbors any ambition to run for President, hopefully this stunt will forewarn the American people.
    They need to run that dumb son of a bitch out of town, next election.

    Good. I don't like big gulps and I'm not a huge donut fan (I'm not a New York cop). But as long as I have the freedom of choice I am happy.
