It’s pointless. I don’t think it will change anything at all. Yes, fat people are disgusting, but what will this do? People can just buy two sodas if they want them. I think something should be done to help stop all the fatness, but this won’t do anything at all. Bloomberg needs to think of another plan. With this, he’s just being an angry mom.

Ugh! Bloomberg pisses me off. This isn’t about soda; it’s about rights. The government shouldn’t have any say in what you do or what you buy. I don’t like what he did with smoking in bars, but at least you can make some kind of argument about second-hand smoking. What do I care if you drink a big-ass Coke? The idea that this will make people thin is such bullshit. Bloomberg should do something about those assholes on Wall Street if he really wants to do something.

It doesn’t matter to me. I buy big sodas everyday, from McDonald’s, and I drink them over the course of a few hours. But they get all watery and warm and flat by the time I finish with them, so if I had to buy a few over a day it just means I’d get cold, delicious soda all the time.

I think something needs to be done about obesity in the United States; it is outrageous how bad things are here. Every country is filled with starving people, but only here are starving people so overweight. But I don’t think the soda law will do anything to change the situation. Is a Pepsi really worse than a cheeseburger? People need to eat better. Bloomberg should do something to make healthy food cheaper or easier to get. Or something to get people to exercise more. Maybe the government should lower taxes for people who go to the gym every week.
