rEVOLution beginning over soda/coffee ban in NY

Holy cow! I work in a major hospital in NY. Over 100 people at work so far today, including PTs are upset at the government ban on soda/coffee. I have heard about the founding fathers, the Constitution, and an out of control nanny state from everyone. A 90 year old PT said he will tar and feather any politician that enforces this ban. All these illegal wars, plus the war on the constitution couldn't do what the soda ban did. People are turning on this government.

Maam please step

onto the scales in order to buy junk food. Im sorry Ma'am but today your a$$ is too fat and the government says for your own good I can not sell these twinkies, chips and soda to you.

I'm going to

stock up on Maypo now.

I knew it!

I so knew this would be on Bloomberg's chopping block soon enough. When he supported a sweeping smoking ban and people mostly took it lying down, I thought, "Just wait until they start taking their coffee and soda away. Maybe then people will care about their rights being taken away."

Good news but

It is pretty pathetic and says a lot about Americans that it was the banning of soda that pushed them over the edge. No reaction from the average American when NDAA is passed, but take away their soda...watch out!


Funny that it took soda and coffee to get these people riled up. Screw the bill of rights, as long as I have my caffeine :D

The Revolution Continues..

They want social unrest and a civil war.

It will be their excuse for the collapse of the economy. That's why it's mostly left wing nuts you see in the demonstrations trying to get the sheep to revolt.

We are ultimately the last line of defense against the parasites.



I try to change people every day. Do You?

It's almost as if

The ruling class, and those who give the ruling class their orders, are trying to forment a revolution. Especially along race and class lines.

This could be used against us: the problem with states rights.

Perfect example!

I think you are looking at it all wrong. This is a perfect example and test case for the people to wake up and hold their local government responsible for their actions. If the people at a local level can't stand up for their personal rights, how will we expect people to stand up for their rights at a national level?

NY and CA appear to be the

NY and CA appear to be the experimental hell holes. The faster things like this happen the better.

If this is going to battle health problems...

Alcohol ban didn't work, drug ban ain't working...

good or bad...FYI This is a inaccurate title/op

it's actually a ban on 16oz and larger sugary drinks, NOT All Coffee and Soda!

Unintended Consequences

Unintended Consequences anyone?

Its a ban on the large sizes of massively sugared drinks

not a ban on the drinks themselves.

-If fat people want to buy two drinks instead of one massive drink they still can do that!

Not really the point

is it? Its all about the principle of individual choice.

people have the right to be stupid and to do stupid things

it's a dumb law to protect dumb people.

personally i think soda should have a warning on them...

most people (even on here) don't know that MONSANTO supplies Coke and Pepsi with most of their *toxic* ingredients.

they need to watch more

they need to watch more documentaries, and realize that they're getting fat for a reason, the soda isn't exactly natural

NY coffee party anyone?


The funny thing is there is a

The funny thing is there is a 'Coffee Party' similar to the 'Tea Party' but filled with socialists and communists; it was started maybe a year after the '09 Tea Party rallies started.

90 yr old PT? You must be referring to "patients", right? And...

not PT's as in.."physical therapists".

If the latter...90 yr old "physical therapist" (wow).

The Prohibitionists

The Prohibitionists never learn until it's their drug of choice that's being banned. Sometimes not even then.

When they say look left..

Better look right

I'm sure there is something else unrelated going on that this is meant to take attention away from.

Dammit Bloomberg!

I'm in NYC, and this is absolutely ridiculous. There needs to be revolt if by some miracle this passes.

ok so let me get this right

They want to ban soda and coffee over 16oz, but allow beer in 40oz bottles to stay in the fridge.

seems legit.

His name is Edward Snowden

What is Capitalism?

Bloomberg is out of his mind.

Bloomberg is out of his mind.

we are down to

sheeple micro management now.. enjoy

idiots, people will just buy 2 16 ounce drinks and it will be worse.

They show Bloomberg drinking a big fat diet coke full of aspartame - yeah he cares about health.


He'll be sending more business to the soda/coffee industry with this. More corporate handouts. I wonder if he just received campaign funds from Coke/Pepsi/RC/P&G/Folgers,etc..

I think they made a mistake

I think they made a mistake including coffee in there. Soda is debatable, but once you start messing with people's coffee, you better watch out.
Not even the cops would go along with a coffee ban.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

since when does the law

apply to cops?

you can bet 5-O will stop speeding long enough to make an illegal u turn while talking on the cell phone to bust YOU.

Soda is debatable?

please show me where in the Constitution the Government would be able to regulate soft drinks.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy
