Coke in New York City

New York  City Major Michael Bloomberg is proposing to limit to 16 ounces the size of sugary drinks that are sold at city restaurants, theaters and street carts.

Here is a case of government run amok. What business of government is it how much sugar-water people choose to drink?

Are we going to ration chewing gum next?

It reminds me of the stupid, medieval laws about not selling beer on Sunday mornings. What business of government is it what I want to consume, when I want to consume it and where and when I buy it.

Bloomberg, stay out of my Coke habit.

(I don’t even drink soda, and I still this is the dumbest thing I have heard government trying to do in a long time).

    I agree that the carbonated beverage issue is ridiculous. People will still eat and drink what they want whether the government limits the size available or not. We still have blue laws here in California. The sale of beer, wine, and spirits are prohibited between 2:00 am and 6:00 am. When I was a child the only things that could be purchased on Sundays, in Oklahoma and Texas, was food and medicines.
