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.

Tim Tebow: You know, for awhile shortly after 9/11, I really liked this Bloomberg fella. But recently it seems he's gone off the deep end.


Not to mention that 12 years after this harrowing, earth shaking even that would change America FOR EVER!, it's nothing more than a T-shirt, a couple of tattered slogans and a Third Reich style collection of alphabet soup agencies and our fearless leaders have concentrated on regulating soda pop.  It's almost as if it was just a huge hijack and now that they've given the keys to the treasury to elitist swine while we his under our beds, that they've run out of useful sh*t to do and they're just trolling.

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.

whidbey: Otto_E_Rodika: So now people will have to buy more 16 oz drinks instead of one 2 liter bottle, meaning higher costs, more energy expended in the manufacturing and transportation process, more energy expended while it is at retail or warehouse, and more waste being left behind in additional bottles and packaging.  And the city taxes all of the those businesses and transactions, and now gets higher sales tax on the added cost of buying the same amount of soft drink in multiple packaging.  Sure, it is all about protecting people's health.  Bullshiat.

Pretty much sums up your post.  Like there's really going to be that much "more energy expended" or that 2 liter bottles and other larger packaging don't already get thrown away as "waste."  And you just had to bring up some scenario where your taxes might go up.

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.

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.

poughdrew: theBigBigEye: I've always dreamed of visiting Time Square and touring NYC at least once. However, having to deal with crap like this? Fark that place and fark the people who voted in and tolerate this shiat.

I mean, I can understand not wanting to go visit NYC because it's expensive.  If you go with the family (kids!) on a standard-american-vacation you'll invariably get sucked into the crappy and expensive tourist trap restaurants.

But if you draw the line at no 2-liter soda on a delivery pizza?  I mean, seriously, can't remember the last time I held a 2-liter of soda, much less bought one, or asked a delivery guy to buy me one.  I mean, in New York, the delivery guy is for the weed, coke, and models.. not the soda.

/When they came for the soda, I did not care, because I drink scotch.
//lives in the DMZ between "the city" and "up-state"


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).

Considering prohibition was just shy of 100 years ago, yes, I rightly believe they COULD imagine that very thing.

Do people realize that the NY Post is a troll newspaper? This is basically like yelling "DEATH PANELS!" every time we talk about Obamacare.

Captain Couscous: L.D. Ablo: Yet another reason why Los Angeles is better.

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".

Mrbogey: Real Women Drink Akvavit: I always thought some of the more interesting taco trucks put LA on top. Where else can you get Korean-Thai-Mexican-Mediterranean fusion tacos while standing in a dark alley at 10:00 pm other than Los Angeles?

Can you buy an alcoholic mixed drink through a drive-thru there?


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.
