justtray: Drinks dont kill people, fatties do.


I just don't know what kind of country we live in where any kid, no matter how old, can walk up to any one of throusands of stores in New York alone, and buy the exact same types of beverages that we sell to our military forces -- and in the same, high-capacity capacity cups!  No waiting period to think about whether this is good for them, no ID check, no questions about obesity or diabetes, the kids just hand their money over and these merchants of death happily give them what they want, in any capacity they want.  No questions asked. What they're doing to our children is unconscionable.
 You never see hunters carrying huge, over-sized Big Gulp cups, do you?  That's because nobody needs more than 16 ounces of soda, and if they do, then they can just buy two.  And a benefit there is the added time and effort in refilling the smaller cup will make them drink soda slower, and therefore kill themselves slower.


We're killing our children by the thousands in this country, every day, and I salute Mayor Bloomberg for finally standing up against Big Soda, as well as the American Beverage Association and their big-money lobbists, and doing something about this rampant problem.

jehovahs witness protection: Why hasn't Bloomberg been whacked yet? Oh yeah...the only people allowed to have guns in NYC are cops and mobsters. And he owns both.


Oh, good, we're advocating assassination over the size of your root beer now.

They came for the smoker and I said nothing because I didn't smoke...
They came for the transfats and I said nothing because I didn't eat Oreo.
They came for the Foie gras and I kind of helped them 'cause that shiat is nasty.
Now they come for the sugary drinks

I was with you until you got to that part.  Foie is FARKING AMAZING.  Its like meat butter.  How can you go wrong?  What is it about the foie that you do not like?

The production method.

You are viewing it from the humans point of view.  Ducks/geese/pelicans/etc do not have a gag reflex.  Watch a water foul eat a fish...it goes down whole.

If you are referencing an old video on youtube where the ducks feet are nailed to the ground and are abused, then your opinion is skewed...that was filmed in like Eastern Europe back in the 80's/90's IIRC.

Then again, one could be equally disgusted in modern CAFO beef production...

I'm not a PETA nut. I have meat with almost every meal but even I won't eat foie gras. Dirty Jobs showed the force feeding of the ducks and I looked into it. I read several sources and looked at both sides. I think the facts are clear and you can read about them at stopforcefeeding.com. I am too lazy to link it. Force feeding is much more gruesome than most people realize.


Force feeding the ducks is an outdated practice.  They were required to do it to get the geese/ducks fat because the animals wouldn't eat enough.  Fortunately  that problem has all but been eliminated since switching to American ducks.

I'm glad I left.

It is amazing with toasted brioche and a touch of maple syrup.


Toasted brioche, cherry gelee and caramelized Bing and Rainier Cherries. That was the first time I had foie gras. Mr. Unsympathetic and I bought our car from the owner of a fancy pants restaurant in Woodinville, WA and she threw in dinner with the car. Duck fat focaccia is another mind altering food I had never tried before that night. Plus runny egg on pasta.

/Dinner was bird themed.
//When Mr. Unsympathetic graduates from university, I'm taking him back.
///Double win for me. Hundred Mile Dinner here I come.... just 15 more months.
//Suddenly, Lean Cuisine for lunch sounds like a fail.

Why would you institute a ban based on the quantity of the drink?

It should just be a limit on the grams of sugar per volume.

Lets be honest, most people are consuming so much sugar needlessly and likely unknowingly, that it may be a bigger problem than smoking tobacco in this country.
