New York Soda Drinkers, REJOICE!
 
A judge has blocked that stupid large soda ban, you may now get your Big Gulps if you are in NYC.

They are now free to drink their large sodas and simultaneously b**** about the cost of our healthcare system. Kudos to them. Idiots.

C'mon, banning them was a tremendously poor decision. They should be legal, but taxed to all hell. If you want to kill yourself slowly, it should cost you 5 bucks a pop. Pun intended.

Their Hitler Mayor is going to be upset about that.

Yea Bloomberg went a bit too far on this one. Not very many people were happy about it. I was particularly concerned with people buying multiple sodas or coffees and all the extra waste that created.

It'll never happen, Bloomberg is gone in a few months.

Sadly, the judge did not also block Bloomberg from continuing on as Mayor. He'll come up with another idiotic notion soon enough.

Its not the soda ban...its the actions of Fuhr Bloomberg that are getting out of hand. That is waaaaaayyyy too much government rule. And if you want that type of lifestyle, then move to NY. I don't need politicians telling me how to wipe my ass, what ear buds I can use, what type of drink I can and can't have and so on.

Government and local public service have lost sight of this and we create silly rules just to create them. At the end of the day, government should be about public works (i.e. infrastructure), public safety (police/fire/paramedics) and public fun (parks and recreation and libraries).

If NY put the same amount of money ---dollar for dollar--- that they spent on this stupid soda ban into a public program promoting fitness and wellness they could have accomplished more.

I don't drink much pop, but it's pretty stupid to try and force people to drink less just by making the cup sizes smaller. I'm sure there's much more important things NY needs to be worrying about than people drinking big gulps.
