I wonder if they'll ban alcohol too. Alcohol is high in calories and is very unhealthy. So it's not ok to buy a 20oz soda but it's ok to go to a bar and drink all you want? I'm not advocating that they ban alcohol, but I'm pointing out how completely mindless their logic is. This whole soda ban garbage is one of the most idiotic pieces of legislation I've ever seen.

Available consumptive quantities is *not* the issue. Telling people 'no you can't have that' isn't going to do anything, either.
Just like liquor - they banned it and said 'you can't have that' Right now people can even make their own dang sodas.

Honestly man, it just seems like you think you're saying a ton of stuff that is still inside your head. Its like you assume that we're in there with you so we should just be able to guess what you think about everything. We can't. You need to lay your positions out clearly and back them up with arguments.
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.
