Do these people have nothing better to do wih their lives other than decide how to run the lives of others?

One member, Bruce Vladeck, thinks limiting the sizes for movie theater popcorn should be considered.

"The popcorn isn't a whole lot better than the soda," Vladeck said.

Another board member thinks milk drinks should fall under the size limits.

"There are certainly milkshakes and milk-coffee beverages that have monstrous amounts of calories," said board member Dr. Joel Forman.

I will never set foot in that *censored* ever again as long as I'm breathing. What an un-American, anti-American, communist bastion that place is. To hell with their leadership, and God help you if you live there. :sick: :no1:

When I moved from NY to CT 30 years ago there was an immediate feeling of relief. Of course Ct. has gone downhill too since then, starting with Weicker and subsequent thieves.

I still can't figure out how the mayor bought himself a third term. I thought the law was the law. I'm less prejudiced when I go into the city than when I'm out here in the burbs. I guess it's the shared experience and the magnificence of the immense buildings. I haven't been to the city since last year when my old friend had an art opening in Chelsea. He got one of his paintings in a small co-op gallery. He backed off of that- basically you just pay a lot of money to have Manhattan exposure to your art, and a huge ordeal to go into the city. He took his wife and kids out of North Jersey for the calmer and more affordable life in south Jersey.
New Yorkers think they're the most sophistocated people on the planet. :) That thing they say about the beautiful women in the city is true, but some of them will give you a dirty look if you stare at them hahahhahah :P

I have a neice that lives in Manhattan, I think she and her generic hipster boyfriend are pretty liberal. You would almost have to be liberal to live in the city.
I don't think she's talking to me, I wrote her a gag email and said that I was in Riker's Island. I told her I had come into the city to buy a few cases of vodka and 20 cartons of cigarettes but was arrested for having a 32 oz. big gulp. :D

Bloomy is another guy that would erase the second ammendment in a heartbeat.

The madness is SPREADING!

The mayor of Cambridge, Mass. has proposed limiting the size of soda and sugar-sweetened beverages sold in city restaurants, saying she was inspired by a similar measure in New York City.

Yep, then you walk over to the self serve dispenser and fill it with regular coke.

Cambridge ... :roll: Nothing shocks me anymore coming from that progressive bastion. :sick: They should just do us all a favor & annex themselves from the USA ...... along with NYC, Frisco, & Chicago.

Can you imagine the reaction from our Founders had they suddenly come back to life to see how this great country has come along??? ...... :eek2:
