People’s Republic Of Berkeley (Berserkley) Mulls Taxing Soft Drinks

People’s Republic Of Berkeley (Berserkley) Mulls Taxing Soft Drinks

Bureaucrats exploit health issues to fleece consumers

by KURT NIMMO | INFOWARS.COM | JULY 2, 2014

Nanny Mike Bloomberg’s soda tax may have crashed and burned.

But in Berkeley, California, taxing folks who like to consume soft drinks with sugar may soon be forced to cough up additional money.

In November the city will put the taxation proposal on the ballot.

The move to burden consumers with an additional government tax is “drawing cheers of support from residents and health advocates” who believe soda drinkers should be economically punished for their reprehensible behavior.

I have a request for my fellow DPers

Can we keep the California threads limited to the rare occasion they actually do something liberty based? It would cut down on articles about California by two orders of magnitude. Thanks.

Dear OP, the Infowars article contains a typo

Dear OP,

the Infowars article contains a typo, that you may want to fix. These days, it's spelled :

Caleechfornia.

(aka, a little more familiar to some of us : Commufornia)

You're welcome.
