I am glad I don't live in NYC. This is just stupid.
Agreeed. Just another way to not hold individuals acountable for their actions!

NYC still has something left to ban? That's probably the most surprising part of this story.
I have no problem with this.
Hopefully next they ban things that can cause real social problems, like free speech, and require people to carry their papers everywhere they go.
Sad. NYC used to be a symbol of freedom to the entire world. Now its a pseudo-London.
Or like picking on the granny across the street.
I drink diet pop but, Bloomburg would crap his pants if he saw my 100oz mug
Okie, I might crap MY pants if I saw your 100 oz mug! Hory clap! That's some serious liquid!!
Don't NYC Kentucky Chicken restaurants have the soda fountains where you fill your own cup? Are they gonna tackle you if you try to refill yuor 16oz cup.
Why do SO many people want to tell you how you should live your life (rhetorical)?
It is some serious liquid for sure my friend
Yeah, because I totally started that.
Guess what? After the city demolished her driveway I haven't heard a peep out of her.
Maybe the old coot died.
I wonder what Bloomboob's opinion on any federal regulation on his investment business would be. "Oh no. That's too restrictive. I need to be able to do blada blada blada. . . "
But he has the ability to restrict anyone's freedom in the name of "health." Definite karma ***-cancer candidate for sure.
I have two of the big mega mugs from kum and go. 100+ ounces. Usually I just drink out of a 64 ounce insulated cup.
Bloomberg is the worst of scum, a food nazi and victim disarmament advocate. I hope he gets the same cancer hugo chavez has but worse.
I'm from the government and I'm here to help...
People need to learn that the sugar do kill you. Sugar is the # 1 for America's obesity and health issues. However, I don't think Gov't has the business to ban the size of drinks. I think the Gov't should ban HFCS. Not many products in a food store that is without HFCS, which it is a very serious business.
This is hard to swallow. Definitely requires a straw.
Personal responsibility is becoming a thing of the past...sad.
Keep voting liberals in ... keep getting this stupid stuff.
True for the national level too.
Obesity is a weighty issue. Society is finding it hard to get a grip on the answer. HFCS is likely part of that problem, i.e., the high sugar content of processed foods does seem to be associated with the spread of obesity among children/youth and adults.
As to HFCS, like cigarettes, alcohol... put lots of labels on the packages warning that the produce contains HFCS... and tax the products for the social cost that result from HFCS... and of course watch the politicians use the revenue generated to offset tax reductions to property owners, etc.
Maybe if the .govt wasn't involved in the first place, HFCS wouldn't be the least expensive sweetener.
If you check wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-fructose_corn_syrup, you will see find that factors for making HFCS less costly than sucrose include governmental production quotas of domestic sugar, subsidies of U.S. corn, and an import tariff on foreign sugar. These all combine to raise the price of sucrose to prices higher in this country than the rest of the world, making HFCS less costly for many sweetener.
In anything, get the .govt out of sugar, instead of banning something else.
