Mayor bloomberg wants a ban on large sodas.  At the same time new york city is hosting the nathans hot dog eating contest.  

Is this attack on large sodas sold merely an attack on the very powerful soft drink companys? A limit on freedom?  Or does it have peoples health in mind?

Silly pandering. You can no more regulate caloric intake than you can morality.

How can people support this ban?  I mean if you dont want to buy a lrge soda, just dont buy it.  I dont understand why a law is needed.  At the same time promoting the super bowl of over eating

I imagine that most people don't support the ban.

Another stupid proposed law that will serve nothing.  Why sodas? Does a 32oz Diet Coke with no sugar part of this 'ban' or just the regular sodas?  Also, it only bans them in certain places.  You still would be able to get the large sizes in supermarket and stores.  Another useless ban like the 'Happy Meals' ban in San Francisco, which did NOTHING and circumvented the problem of the core issues.

Yes, there is an obesity issue in America. But it underlying issue needs to be changed.  How about banning 'commercials' , 'advertising' and ads that make drinking soda 'cool'.

If this proves unpopular then the next step on this liberal agenda will be to tax "large" sodas to pay for the health care of "undocumented people of size" or some such nonsense.  

Just like the tax on cigarettes, they really do not wish you to quit, they just want a larger slice of your pie.  Liberals want to gorge at the Tax Table Buffet until they and their coffers are turgid with money to "help" the poor.

Even better...let people assume responsibility for their own health and get off the "ban" train altogether.

Isn't it interesting that we won't revolt against politicians who spend our money to meander fecklessly over these trivial pointless issues, all the while failing to address what really matters?

If you gave your kid $20 for gas money to fill up the car, and he instead buys a comic book and plays the arcade, wouldn't you cuff him upside the head? Yet we tolerate politicians who do essentially the same thing with what one can only describe as crippling apathy.

I guess if you can't see it in your own backyard killing your own family, it's someone else's problem. Selfish gene indeed.

Gem of a post.

Do whatever you want to your body but don't expect me to pay for it.  Nor do I expect you to pay for me.

Soda is just a start. Think about Obamacare. We will soon have to pay extra tax for any type of junk food. They are just using NYC as a market for trial. This will go federal if Obama and his followers stay in office. With Obamacare do you think they want to spend money on fat unhealthy people? no. This is their solution. They will soon control every aspect of our lives. They do that enough now, but they want to control what goes into your shopping cart as well.

hot dogs have protein.  so they're cool.

pepsi and dr pepper are foul, but mountain dew is highly anabolic.

The ban is symbolic in gesture and hopefully will get the ball rolling on things to come as governments and other groups press for bans and labeling on obviously unhealthy foods. 

America is FAT......and you ever see those one out of eight people are hungry commercials?  Its wrong.....about SIX out of eight people are hungry....hungry for cakes and 2 liters of Faygo.

Perhaps they should link obesity to being a national security issue.....copious amounts of money that are siphoned from the Treasury so you can get your quadruple bypass when you're 35 and about a dozen different prescriptions of diabetes meds....money that could otherwise have been used to fight Terror.
