New York City plans to enact a far-reaching ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks at restaurants, movie theaters and street carts, in the most ambitious effort yet by the Bloomberg administration to combat rising obesity.
The proposed ban would affect virtually the entire menu of popular sugary drinks found in delis, fast-food franchises and even sports arenas, from energy drinks to pre-sweetened iced teas. The sale of any cup or bottle of sweetened drink larger than 16 fluid ounces — about the size of a medium coffee, and smaller than a common soda bottle — would be prohibited under the first-in-the-nation plan, which could take effect as soon as next March.

Why do so many New Yorkers act like they're "tough guys" because they're from New York? They are obviously a bunch of pansies the way they keep re-electing Bloomberg to be their mommy.

Fits right in there with wearing seat belts ( bet that lights a fire under some Lib azzes! :lol: ) : Where did they get the right to determine WHAT I eat, drink, or do with my body, since it has zero effect on anyone else in the world?

And THAT, along with parental stupidity pretty much tells the tale. 16oz cokes have next to nothing to do with the problem, but I guess that gang needs a new "feel good" cause. DUMB :o

Bloomberg is a bozo. What's going to stop anyone from just buying two of 'em?

I wonder if there is a plan for a barrage of graphic anti-soda ads like those with smokers using stoma tubes ?

You want their FAT LITTLE ASSES to become slim, sell their $800 computers and buy them a $200 bike and then tell them to go out and play. We never had fat little kids when I was growing up.
