We already knew New York sucked

Lets get the bias out of the way up front. I despise New York. I hate their elitism, the crowding, the self-centeredness and self-importance.

I have less interest in visiting there than I have in visiting a mausoleum in the middle of the Sahara desert, and I have zero interest in that. So you can imagine where my desire to be anywhere New York must be...

With that said, I think New York managed to top itself with their ban on soda over 16 oz in most venues.

Even funnier are the comments people are making about it to defend it on left wing trash rags like the Huffington Post.

There are dozens of comments along the lines of "I have to pay the increased costs for your health insurance, so I have a right to limit how much soda you drink".

Ha hahahaha thank you for pointing out those of us who know math despise Obamacare even more than we hate welfare.

Even better are the tools bringing up nonsense like, "Well I like," (insert random nasty-tasting beverage here) "and people should drink more of that."

But best of all; alcohol can still be served in larger quantities.

Thank you Bloomberg for showing any fence-sitters what most of us already know. Government choosing what I can eat, drink, wear, who I can talk to, who I can disassociate myself from was, is and always will be a bad idea.

I hope someone sues that city into bankruptcy. Now that would be New York related news to bring a smile to my face.

Have you ever been to New York?

I have been as close as I am going to be. The things New Yorkers take pride in are pretty much as close as I want to get

On the upside, there are lawsuits already in the works to challenge the Big Nanny Republican Bloomberg and his council of buffoons (see, and you thought Republicans wouldn't criticize other fellow Republicans) over this incredibly infantile law.
