but at least you can get a 2 liter diet Coke.
 
2013-02-24 03:56:27 PM  
Okay. That infographic with Mayor Bloomberg/Poppins is cute.

Isn't this the city with drug delivery services? I bet they'd be willing to throw in a bottle of coke along with an ounce of weed.

The only rational conclusion I can come up with is that Bloomberg has his hands in the cigarette/soda smuggling circles that bring that stuff out to NYC and is getting a piece.

Simple solution raise the price of the pizza/alcohol whatever and make the soft dink "complimentary."
 
2013-02-24 04:58:03 PM  
Gee, I won't be able to pay $3.00 plus tip for a 2 liter I can get elsewhere for half that? Darn

Meh, I can't imagine that folks would want to pay out the arse for a 2-liter with soda anyway.  Here, they charge something like 3 or 4 bucks; I can walk down the street and get a 2-liter at the grocery store for 1.25.

Until Lord Bloomberg decides to regulate that too.

Maybe regulate pizza sizes, maybe ban people from eating more than a certain amount of food per meal.
 
2013-02-24 05:02:40 PM  
I understand why he's banning Big Gulps, since those are intended to be one serving.  (I don't agree, but I understand)

I don't understand this.  A 2 liter has a little over 8 servings.  What's next, no one can buy more than one 16oz bottle at a time, because they might drink more than one?

But you can still buy beer by the pitcher and whole bottles of vodka?!? Great priorities there, mayor. Beat your wife, run over a kid, or wrap your car around a phone pole- just don't get fat.
I'm going to NY in September and I'm taking several 44oz Big Gulp cups with me. I don't even drink soda but I'll fill one with tea and carry it everywhere. fark that shiat.

will they still sell the two liter in grocery stores?
 
2013-02-24 05:09:26 PM  
FTA: Typically, a pizzeria charges $3 for a 2-liter bottle of Coke. But under the ban, customers would have to buy six 12-ounce cans at a total cost of $7.50 to get an equivalent amount of soda.

You would think the ban, which is supposed to be about health concerns, would not permit the equivalent of a 2 liter soda.

/looks like it will help the soda companies and people will still get fatter

Silverstaff: Until Lord Bloomberg decides to regulate that too.

Well for a long time there's been a loophole. People go to food markets and they get whatever they want with no supervision of whether or not it's healthy. Sure, we can put on the side of a 20oz bottle of soda that it's 2 servings and hope the person divides it up between two meals but there's no real way to enforce it. So what we have to do is close the bulk food loophole and make every item sold one serving. That way a person will have to consciously decide to eat twice as much food as they should.

Every year fatties cost America billions in healthcare costs. Since this is paid for by the taxpayers it's only fair that taxpayers work to end their subsidization of these free riding fatties.

If you have a 1% chance per day of being caught and you make more than $2 per day from selling the larger container, you're better off breaking the law.

No it's not. Horsemeat and foie gras are banned in California.


Actually, slaughtering horses for human consumption is illegal in all 50 states, which is why horses are shipped to Canada (I think) or Mexico (I know). Also, we didn't exactly ban foie gras itself. Force feeding birds to produce it is banned, as is selling anything produced from the force feeding of birds. To get around the ban, the restaurants that still serve it no longer sell it. They simply jacked up the price of the accompaniments and the seared foie gras is "complimentary".

Not the good mixed drinks. Some of the drive thru dairies had those cheapo premixed things. Considering the drive thru dairies tended to be located in less than "high end" neighborhoods, those probably sold better than a premium mixed drink ever could. I bet Night Train or maybe MD 20/20 still was the top seller, though.

Let's take a look at Who mad about the soda?

Tea party, Republicans, southerners and mid-westerners mad because it's liberal yankee Jew York City Mayor Goldberg stepping on their freedoms from value-priced high-fructose corn syrup-induced 'diabeetus'. But it's 'okay' because they are all 'Christians' and love Israel.

Libertarians mad because 'nanny state' regulates soda but the pot-smoking members on the RON PAUL! Tour Bus of Love still can't score some good Cali bud and the right-leaning libertarians are actually just REALLY pissed-off Randian conservatives that think as long as we get back on the gold standard and remain self-centered middle age white men that the poors can't afford any gawdamned soda-pop in the first gawdamned place! Second Amendment! Ron/Rand Paul! Thanks Obama!

Fat farks mad because everybody knows the 64 oz. Big Gulp size is clearly the greatest value for heart disease, stretch pants, a handicapped parking space and the Scooter Store.

Copy and paste for every political thread that contains the words 'nanny state', 'regulation', or 'Fartbongo' in the headline.

Are you joking me? Clearly it has been established that the government can restrict "free trade". Think guns, tobacco, alcohol.

Plus spraypaint, prescription drugs, non-prescription drugs that could be abused or used to make meth.

Then think about non-USDA beef, "dietary supplements" making a medical claim, lead tainted children's toys, a car seat that hasn't passed safety inspection.

The government restricts of ton of things that can be *sold* and they are not all things that are super toxic/addictive like cigarettes. Arguably at this time more people are getting sick and dying from trans fat and sugary drinks than cigarettes so I don't see how this ban is a stretch.

That said, if I was the one deciding, I would vote against this ban.

What's stupid is that 7-11 is exempt because it's not a restaurant as dictated by the Health Department so those 64-oz Big Gulps are legit. Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts are also exempt because many of their drinks have dairy which is okay. Dunkin already sells soft drinks in bottles.
Movie theaters and sports stadiums are included in the ban. No large soft drinks while watching basketball or hockey at Madison Square Gardens. No worries, you're drinking beer anyways.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: Not the good mixed drinks. Some of the drive thru dairies had those cheapo premixed things. Considering the drive thru dairies tended to be located in less than "high end" neighborhoods, those probably sold better than a premium mixed drink ever could. I bet Night Train or maybe MD 20/20 still was the top seller, though.

We had one of those a few blocks from where I grew up in Simi Valley, and I highly doubt that Night Train or MD 20/20 were big sellers.

Of course at that point in history most people from Simi had never seen a black man yet except on TV, the Rodney King trial wouldn't be held until a few years later

Dahnkster: Assault beverage ban? My soda gun needs a bigger magazine!

Let's take a look at Who mad about the soda?

Tea party, Republicans, southerners and mid-westerners mad because it's liberal yankee Jew York City Mayor Goldberg stepping on their freedoms from value-priced high-fructose corn syrup-induced 'diabeetus'. But it's 'okay' because they are all 'Christians' and love Israel.

Libertarians mad because 'nanny state' regulates soda but the pot-smoking members on the RON PAUL! Tour Bus of Love still can't score some good Cali bud and the right-leaning libertarians are actually just REALLY pissed-off Randian conservatives that think as long as we get back on the gold standard and remain self-centered middle age white men that the poors can't afford any gawdamned soda-pop in the first gawdamned place! Second Amendment! Ron/Rand Paul! Thanks Obama!

Fat farks mad because everybody knows the 64 oz. Big Gulp size is clearly the greatest value for heart disease, stretch pants, a handicapped parking space and the Scooter Store.

Copy and paste for every political thread that contains the words 'nanny state', 'regulation', or 'Fartbongo' in the headline.


So, are you actually bringing something to this discussion or are you just going to shiat out a few strawmen and stereotypes?

Just because your "ideological oppenents" are against this does not excuse the fact that this is a terrible, overreaching law that needs to be stopped and that Bloomberg is still and will forever be a massive condenscending, nannying Masshole.

I don't understand this.  A 2 liter has a little over 8 servings.  What's next, no one can buy more than one 16oz bottle at a time, because they might drink more than one?


Do people realize that the NY Post is a troll newspaper? This is basically like yelling "DEATH PANELS!" every time we talk about Obamacare. People want to complain about "Nanny" Bloomberg, so they re-interpret the law into something that victimizes them. Has anybody gotten in trouble over the things the article talks about? No?

I can't recall if I ever made it that far out of my financial league at the time, even for kicks and giggles. I was almost strictly a denizen of some of Los Angeles county's more questionable neighborhoods and I tended to hang around those areas. I did spend a brief time in OC, but didn't get along with the roomies, so I went back to LA.

Mrbogey: Silverstaff: Until Lord Bloomberg decides to regulate that too.

Maybe regulate pizza sizes, maybe ban people from eating more than a certain amount of food per meal.

Well for a long time there's been a loophole. People go to food markets and they get whatever they want with no supervision of whether or not it's healthy. Sure, we can put on the side of a 20oz bottle of soda that it's 2 servings and hope the person divides it up between two meals but there's no real way to enforce it. So what we have to do is close the bulk food loophole and make every item sold one serving. That way a person will have to consciously decide to eat twice as much food as they should.

Every year fatties cost America billions in healthcare costs. Since this is paid for by the taxpayers it's only fair that taxpayers work to end their subsidization of these free riding fatties.

And you can buy a frozen pizza at the grocery store for $4 so why would anyone want to pay $25 to have one delivered? Oh wait, maybe because it's conveniently cooked and ready to eat, and maybe they figure paying an extra buck or two for a 2 liter is worth the convenience of having it delivered to them along with their meal.

That's why the number of incarcerated people has gone down by a third since 2001 while the national average has gone up.   All of this while having the crime rate in NYC going down by a third as well in the same time period.

They thought it was so invasive that they would need a Constitutional Amendment to authorize it. . .then when it was clear that nobody was paying any attention to the law anyway, they worked to repeal it.

So, they thought they could tell people what to eat or drink. . .if they amended the Constitution specifically to approve it, and then they thought it was a very bad idea in retrospect.

This isn't about soda or anything like that. It's about supporting, albeit indirectly, people in power who are slowly managing to successfully nanny-manage their own constituents. I don't like the idea of touring my own money into these douchebag politician's taxhole pockets.

That deal with Quomo, and his method of "legislating" gun control measures, pretty much sealed my opinion about visiting that state (based on aforementioned principals).

God some of the posters in this thread. I swear.


4 16 oz bottles (which would roughly equal a 2 liter bottle) cost more to manufacture (materials, energy) and cost more to transport (because of the size footprint and weight that it takes compared to a single bottle).  That is why you will usually see 2 liter bottles for much cheaper than a comparable six pack of soft drink.  The sugar water inside the bottle cost them less than the packaging.  And if the local pizza joint now has to charge you more for the same amount of beverage because they are being forced to sell it to you in separate containers, that is a tax on you, since the restaurant passes along the costs to the consumer.  And then, if you knew anything about business, you'd know that receipts are taxed by the city and state, so if the pizza parlor is now charging you 3 dollars more for the same soda in 16 oz containers rather than one 2 liter, then they are reporting that as income that is subject to being taxed, meaning that the city's revenue goes up in the process.

Stay naive.  Bloomberg and his ilk count on people like you.

Laws are not free to propose or inact.  A law that had absolutely no effect still diverts significant time and money.  Laws must, therefore, have justification.

The health cost argument doesn't fly.  Where are the numbers?  How much money does it save?  Surely you're not banning things without hard science?  Surely you're not banning things from the marketplace -- only certain configurations of things, mind -- because you heard they can be unhealthy?

Maybe regulate pizza sizes, maybe ban people from eating more than a certain amount of food per meal.

Well for a long time there's been a loophole. People go to food markets and they get whatever they want with no supervision of whether or not it's healthy. Sure, we can put on the side of a 20oz bottle of soda that it's 2 servings and hope the person divides it up between two meals but there's no real way to enforce it. So what we have to do is close the bulk food loophole and make every item sold one serving. That way a person will have to consciously decide to eat twice as much food as they should.

Every year fatties cost America billions in healthcare costs. Since this is paid for by the taxpayers it's only fair that taxpayers work to end their subsidization of these free riding fatties.

or prophecy?


No pizza may have a diameter greater than 8 inches, and said pizza must cost at least $30.  At least two vegetable toppings must be present for every 1 meat topping, and pepperoni is banned completely.  Every order of sausage pizza is logged and tracked, and a mandatory heart disease warning label which covers at least 2/3rds of the top of the pizza box must be present.  A $9.00 Carbon Emissions Surcharge is mandatory on all deliveries.

Excessive ordering of sausage pizzas constitutes a municipal infraction punishable by a $400.00 fine.

We have determined that a reasonably sized soda will be arbitrarily defined as 16 ounces or less. This is for your protection, and is based upon no scientific data whatsoever. Please continue tongue bathing my boots to show your compliance, citizen.

ilikeracecars: Gee, I won't be able to pay $3.00 plus tip for a 2 liter I can get elsewhere for half that? Darn


You mean somewhere else like outside of NYC?

Because you're not buying a coke over 16 ounces ANYWHERE in NYC now.

Must be nice to drive all the way to Jersey just to get a soda with your DELIVERY pizza.

You people really need to get on with your lives.  There are far more important things for you to consider than complaining about how you can't have a supersized corn syrup fatwater with your pizza delivery.

Kraftwerk Orange: doctor_sbaits0: Simple solution raise the price of the pizza/alcohol whatever and make the soft dink "complimentary."

For years I offered our female customers a complementary soft dink.  Not one ever took me up on it, sigh.


They wanted your hard stuff.

I suspect that you probably pass out when you forget to keep breathing.

Some people are capable of saying "this is farking stupid" while keeping the big things in mind.

mizchief: Buy a whole bottle of grey goose drinking all of which will actually kill you. Just fine. Buying an equal amount of fruit juice? That's a fine. Welcome to the nanny state.


Pretty much this. There's no logic to the nanny-state.

Plus the assumption here is that one obese person drinks the whole drink - perhaps they've never heard of this thing called sharing. So now people will pay more to waste more packaging or buy the same size from elsewhere.
