...Are you kidding me? What the hell, are We the People not allowed to make ANY choices for ourselves anymore?! This infuriates me more than I can possibly emote through the web. If somebody wants a 64oz soda it should be their choice! Who are you to tell me what I can and can't put in my own body as long as it doesn't effect anybody else. I know there are obviously plenty of laws saying what big brother thinks is good for me and what isn't but this is just too far.

I agree with the comments on the page. We can't let this happen. If this law is enacted, it will be the beginning of the end of everything I love about my country.

it's about money, not the health of citizens. Think of it this way. McDonalds charges $1.00 for a small where as a large drink and fry added onto your meal is just $1.00 extra. OR you can get a small drink for $1.00, or you can get a large drink for just $1.50 and it is twice the volumn of the small, so it should be $2.00. However, people recognize, or rather correlate the thought of them getting more for less, so they get the large. 
 
 
It's not the size of the drink he/they care about, it's the fact he/they want The People to pay more for less.
 
The good think is that Monsters at exactly 16oz. So all of us energy drink addicts are safe...Ermm

He is trying to argue the fact that the container itself is what makes us fat rather than the contents in the drink itself which is just plain ignorant.
 
 
It's like me petitioning for the banning of spoons because they made me fat.

What gets me, is that you'll still be able to get a triple venti caramel latte from starbucks (which will run you 370 calories) but you can't get a 20oz coke (which is only 240 calories)

So in short, Bloomberg is an ass.

Slightly off topic I've always thought the large drinks too damn big.

I don't recall it being different overseas, but a large gets you a large drink. I want a medium. A super size gets you a bloody super tanker load of cooldrink. I want a medium.

Try get a company to give you a burger, extra large fries and a medium drink. Even if you say you'll pay for the super size, but just pour a medium.

Gets my goat.

This.


What bugs the balls off me as an upstater is how much pull this jerk has with this policies over the rest of the state. If NYC does something, Albany's not far behind. So as soon as he starts with full-blown retardation, you can bet the beer money right now that the rest of the state is going to feel the ripples.

You would have to ban the table spoons. Teaspoons are safe because they wont allow as much contents to fit in them.


From what I heard (Didn't read the law or article yet). It was poorly written and would even cover stores trying to sell 20oz bottles. It would be unenforceable because every store and restaurant in NYC would have to change the size of their drinks. (I think a standard cup you get at a restaurant is 20oz)

This is just dumb. I understand the desire for regulation, but this is the stupidest implementation you could ask for.

Great point. Further proves the idiocy of this idea.

Sweetened coffee is capped also.

I think this law is great. We need to combat obesity and diabetes.

Only government intervention will work.

Local news covered this oddly enough over the weekend. I have to admit I was shocked that they were able to do it with a straight face. Honestly, it almost seemed like they thought it was a good idea. One of the closing comments on the story was the statement that "if this law passes, many more states will likely follow suit." Really? I can't believe there isn't more uproar about this. Have we really just given up? I don't even drink soda for the most part, but instead choose unsweetened iced tea and I typically grab the largest sized cup they have. Will I now only get to grab a 20oz cup? Seems silly to me.

Well, when parents can't take care of their children, the state steps in and takes the children away.  There are way too many fat kids for the state to handle, so they have to deal with bad parents in ways like this.  I see where they are coming from, but I think it would make more sense for them to ban the large drinks for kids, rather than everyone.
