    They already have cameras on every street corner of the UK but the Big Gulp may not yet have advanced there yet. How can people start their day without 32 ounces of that fine combination of sugar, water,caffeine and flavorings?

    Which is none of the government's business.

    Think of Republicans as your strict father. You are going to do what he tells you to do or he is gonna kick your ass, stomp you into the ground, and kill you. He is a mean spirited asshole. Now think of Democrats as your loving mother. She is gonna wrap her arms around you, protect you, and squeeze you to death. In the end, you die either way. From an ass kicking or a bear hug, it doesn't matter. You are dead. A little parenticide at this point wouldn't be a bad thing. LOL.

    Government assuming it has the authority to do whatever it pleases seems to be contracting. NYC being the testing grounds for such legislation was dealt a blow, and I think that's a good thing.
    Was that a republican mayor trying to restrict freedom?!?!

    Yes, all the restrictions on liberty imposed during the Bush administration were for our own good.

    Nice BDS - still nagging is it?

    So what restriction of food items did Bush impose? Tell me all about it and I only charge $260 an hour.
