    I wonder how stupid he'll feel when people buy 2 16-ounce drinks instead of 1 20-ounce drink.

    The mayor suggested that. He also suggested that retailers charge more for drinks if they're worried about losing money.

    That's how billionaires think.

    The restriction applies only to establishments that receive letter grades from the Health Department. That means certain outlets, including 7-Eleven and its Big Gulp, are exempt. - That is odd as they do have prepared food in there right? Bloomy have stock in 7-11?

    I don't think they have prepared food in 7/11. I'm not sure those pre-wrapped sandwiches in the fridge count. There aren't any 7/11s with real deli counters.

    Bloomturd has no need to own stocks. He gets a nice hunk of change every month from company's that lease his 'terminals'.

    Gonna get all KIRKCHEMTRAILZ1111 but doesn't this just seem like a test measure to see just how much of the State's cock the citizens will take in their sheep colons? Looks like the answer is balls deep if they are willing to let people tell them how big their fuckin' soda can is going to be and they don't do anything about that level of psychotic micromanaging and state control.

    This is the natural following of the ban of smoking in public establishments. Just a little bit at a time, then they really got you owned.

    Haven't been in one in years... but don't they have those hot dog roller things? Plus the beverage dispensers... those things can get pretty gross if they aren't cleaned/maintained.

    The monthly rent for a Bloomberg terminal is $1500. There's 350K of those around the world.

    That's a spicy meatball...

    Wait, he actually suggested buying 2 drinks? Doesn't that contradict his agenda of reducing how much soda people drink? Thank God I don't live in NYC. I don't understand why people keep voting for him.

    What if you want a 32 oz diet soda? That's not sugary. (oh, it's aspertaney)
    How about a 32 oz Gatorade?

    This isn't America anymore.

    Well, the last election, the one he "bought" by changing the rules regarding term limits (changing them without it going to a public vote), he barely won. He thought he was going to waltz right in, and found out almost half the city hated him. So the past 3 years he's turned this city into his own personal playground/SimCity.

    I didn't vote for him once. Say that to the other 51% who gave him the third term.

    The first step is the red light cameras. If a population will sit there like "They will keep us safe." while they install those fucking things... then the nanny politicians know they're dealing with a flock of compliant and docile sheep, and then it's bend them over and there is no limit to what they'll take in their asses.

    And oh did they ever stuff the NYers asses full of those red light cameras...

    Shoved 'em up there balls deep and by the dozens.

    I'm against Mrs Bloomberg's ban but I say fuck all these fatties.

    Q) Seriously, who needs to gulp more than 16oz of sugary awfulness at one sitting

    A) Fatties, that's who.

    Suffolk County has been aggressively putting up those things in 'major' intersections. Every time the flash goes off they've nailed another sucker.

    I love me some XL sodas and I'm 6'4", 140 lbs. (135 lbs. if I take an especially large dump). I may be speeding towards diabetes, but I'm not fat. If I can't get a nice big drink the next time I see a concert at MSG or go to a Yankees game, then what the hell am I supposed to pee in on the car ride home? A puny 16-ounce cup will overflow and make a mess, sir!

    Don't forget it's been proven they shorten the yellow lights, prolly increasing accidents, but generating revenue. You can be fat if you want, it's not up to the state to say shit about legal products. They really don't have anything better to do than devote resources to such a fucking non-issue?
