I like Mika Brzezinski. I really do and agree with her on most issues. On this soda ban stuff? Not so much.
The soda ban in New York City has been blocked. If it hadn’t have been blocked, sugary drinks larger than 16 oz. would have been prohibited in restaurants, movie theaters—you get the idea. Mika, a very health-conscious person, wanted the ban. You can go to The Huffington Post and a video to witness her outrage over the ban being blocked.
It pains me to agree with Joe Scarborough on this, but I do. I don’t think the government has any kind of right to tell us what we can and can’t eat or drink. If people want to be stupid and not educate themselves on a proper diet, then let them be stupid and, in turn, kill themselves. Government doesn’t need to be policing everything.
I can’t imagine drinking a 16 oz. cup of anything let alone soda (in this part of the country, most call it “pop” but that’s a subject for a different day). If people want to do it and damage their health and piss every five minutes, you know, go for it. Enjoy your life. What you have left of it.
Sorry. Don’t mean to be preaching. Have some more Coke while I have another cigarette.
