Two Liter Bottles and Pitchers of Soda Among the Casulaties of New Law-

    The Mayor Bloomberg soda ban takes effect March 12 and NYC's nanny cops are ready to make sure merchants and restaurants don't sell anything larger than 16 ounces in one serving.
    Gone would be the two liter bottle of Coke with your pizza, a pitcher of soft drink at a child's birthday party, or a carafe of cranberry juice if you get bottle service at a ritzy night club.
    This is the kind of rule easily mocked and easily grasped by voters in the mayoral election this fall.

     One wonders if those considered close to Hizzoner, like Christine Quinn, will suffer from the Mayor's latest attempt to regulate lives.
    A shrewd candidate could get a lot of mileage out of this, but then again a majority may support nanny state politics. We will see.
Customers to suffer as Bloomberg’s soda ban prohibits mixers, pitchers, 2-liter bottles -

He's a prime example of why there should be psychological testing for all candidates BEFORE their name goes on the ballot, like some other positions.

As long as I can still buy two liter bottles with my benefits card then I am fine with it.

Sounds like good big over-reaching government to me. And as Dannie says, "what is the alternative?" We have to have government tell us how to live, as we aren't smart enough to make these kinds of decisions ourselves.

You may have a point Jeff. The Rotten Apple not only elected him the first time around, they re-elected him twice. People get the government they deserve.

Someone needs to speak up for our rights as New Yorkers. Bloomy is now going after State rights to have a big gulp. I have not drank a Coke or any other big sugar soda in months, still that's my choice. Any of you you should have the right to drink it if you want in any amount. Sure the crap is death in a bottle. So is beer if it is over consumed. I still just don't get when the government received the right to rule us instead of protecting us. Hell the whole deal almost opens up the chance for speak easy soda bars to open in NYC. Maybe that's the new big money idea? I have some time on the weekend to drive a van full of two litters to the big city.
