Big Brother government is on a rampage against super-sized sodas -- at least in New York City where obesity is a serious problem.. No doubt you've read about Mayor Bloomberg's effort to make it illegal for fast food establishments and street vendors to sell sodas larger than eight ounces.
I wish I could say this was a joke, but he's really serious. This is the same city that was going to outlaw salt added to restaurant food. (Did that goofy law pass? Anyone? Anyone?) Well, we all know that obesity is a BiiiiiiiiG problem and the government is busy making plans to send the SWAT team to in to raid the pantry.
What is it with liberals anyway? They talk about being pro-choice, but want to eliminate everybody's right to choose their own junk food. Does anyone really believe that a law banning super-sized sodas will change the eating habits of the obese? Dream on! And here's what the view of this nonsense is from the U.K. calling it a "whiff of liberal fascism." Yup, that about sums it up.
