    You must have loved Bloomberg....Too bad for you we still have a relatively free society.

    I did. He was fairly conservative and did what he thought best no matter what some idiots thought because he sure wasn't going to please everyone. They repealed the soda limitation under a much more liberal administration if that is what worried you. BTW, I don't live in NYC but I liked his style. You mean even if its against the law to drink alcohol and drive or not wear a seat belt we are still living in a free society? Do tell.

    *Sigh*

    1. I could have swore that the repeal came only after the courts struck down the ban.

    2. Bloomberg is an authoritarian idiot.

    3. Alcohol - Drunk driving puts others in danger. My having a Big Mac Extra value meal means nothing to you as I eat it.

    4. Seat belts should be up to the driver, if you want to get killed in a crash that is your problem alone.

    1. You could be right, never really paid it too much attention.

    2. Exactly, he didn't care what morons thought. And NYC prospered.

    3. When the healthcare system is overwhelmed because that is all you eat and I am unable to get proper care it sure is my problem. If insurance companies are forced to raise premiums across the board to take care of you fat azz it sure is my problem. Like I said healthcare is not an unlimited resource.

    4. Killed is one thing, major trauma is another. The cost of taking care of a paraplegic, a permanently brain damaged individual etc. is enormous and sure does effect me. Not to mention the medical resources they use which are now unavailable to me and mine.
