I just think it's fucked up to limit choices like that to people who deserve to make their own choices AND live with those choices. It's not going to stop obesity.
The problem is we say this about everything. "10 minutes of recess doesn't stop obesity", "Soda limits don't stop obesity", "Limits on sugar and salt don't stop obesity". Individually, no. Together, as say it is is some other countries, they absolutely can.
It's not even an issue I feel that passionately about, but, there are some really simple solutions that we don't enact just because we're lazy...and because its so easy to frame it as "taking away your rights".
|And what made me more mad was the day after Bloomberg announced the soda thing, he was the grand marshal of the National Donut Day parade in New York. Donuts have more calories and fat than soda does...as do most other things.|
Well, yeah, Bloomberg is definitely still a dumbass...especially to do it the same day.
