New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has created a soda controversy that may take more than a 44-ounce Big Gulp to quench.

Citing what he says is the contribution sugary beverages make to obesity in the U.S., Bloomberg proposed a ban the sale of any sugary beverage over 16 ounces in any of the city's restaurants, delis, movie theaters or even street carts.

“Obesity" is a nationwide problem, and all over the United States, public health
officials are wringing their hands saying, ‘Oh, this is terrible.’ New
York City is not about wringing your hands; it’s about doing something. I
think that’s what the public wants the mayor to do,” Bloomberg told The New York Times in making his proposal last week.

Do you really think this will stop"Obesity"

    The role of government should be to protect people from unfair advantage and to provide for the general welfare. There should be no laws to protect people from themselves or to enforce morality! That includes this idiot regulation, seatbelt laws, helmet laws, drug laws, anti-gay laws, etc. Laws should exist only to regulate conduct that harms others. Some will argue that obesity harms others through higher healthcare costs. That need not be so if people are required to carry health insurance and if the cost of that insurance reflects individual health risks like smoking and obesity. Education to help prevent obesity is fine, but regulation to try to prevent it is antithetical to personal freedom.

    I kind of wish some of Michael Bloomberg rules would be over turned in the court and some of his guys get arrested, the ones doing business outside NYC, cus they got no business outside since they got no power outside of NYC.
