kukukupo: I'm guessing by the end of the year you will only be able to buy sugar in 1/2 cup increments. Sugar is BAD!
hasty ambush: Peopel, People; It is not a difficult concept: If you do not want government control do not accept government money. You cannot expect the tax payers to finance things like your health care without them exerting controls over what it costs them. You bring this stuff on yourself when you asked for government to treat you like a child.Other government types see this as just another means to assume more power of course "for our own good"."There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."-- Daniel Webster
MDGeist: Gee one would think all other issues n the world have been solved with how the Government is going after all these silly little things now.So when do all the troops come home?
yves0010: Here is how I see it. If this does work and they do limit size of sodas. Then they can use it as a stepping stone to limit anything they want. Forcing anything from beer portion sizes to actually selling sugar products in a supermarket.
Imperialism: By that logic the government has no right to regulate anything else designed as a safety precaution. "It isn't government's place to tell me to wear a seatbelt. It isn't government's place to tell me my kid can't work in a factory at age 12. It isn't government's right to ban lead in toys." etc etcI just don't see why THIS regulation is the straw that breaks the camel's back.
blahpers: It really isn't the government's place to do it for us, though.... Eww, I feel conservative.
