Oh please...with Bloomberg's money who needs an ego...And speaking of folks that need less sugar soft drinks, have the citizens of Parkersburg and the MOV looked at their rear ends in a mirror lately...what a hoot. Just go to your nearby Wal Mart...be sure to take a camera and enjoy the sights. You could line up the broadsides from one Wal Mart full of customers from Parkersburg to New York cheek to cheek and not see daylight.

Liberals want us not have a large soft drink but its ok for our teenage daughters to have access to the morning after pill without the parents consent. So the liberals are basicly saying we are not disciplined enough to not have a large drink but young teenagers are mature enough to make decisions of that calibur.

Hey, when courts in the northeast are striking the law down, it's got to be bad. Bloomberg needs to go away and stop trying to impose his moral on the rest of us.

Now we'll find where one poster claims this is New York and has nothing to do with WV but what the simpleton fails to understand is that once the law is established in one area, it becomes precedent and is more easily spread to other locations.

Personally, I don't want the gubmint telling me what I can and cannot eat or drink. This nanny state is becomming old.
