    This issue is telling with regard to the hypocrisy of the right.

    On this very forum, for example, post after post, rightists whine and bemoan the ‘excess’ and ‘overreach’ of the Federal government and its failure to respect the wishes of local communities, that jurisdictions should be allowed to enact laws and policies that reflect their local values.

    It would seem conservatives don’t believe in affording that privilege to the people of New York; local communities should be allowed to enact laws and policies only when ‘conservative values’ are at issue.

    The Soviets didn't have enough commodities to 'ban' items in any case. The lack of knowledge of even 20th century history by the hate brigade is astounding.

    Actually conservative ignorance of most things is not at all surprising.

    Otherwise rightists maintain the double-standard: conservatives are allowed to codify ‘local values,’ liberals, not.

    Yes, this stikes me an example of government authoritian overreach, too.

    And the proposed laws inconsistencies make no sense, either.

    Banning supersized drinks in some venues but not others?


    Seriously the whole concept is pretty silly.

    lol... That's the funniest attempt at spin I have ever seen by C_Clayton_Jones. It is the party of government dependency (or the left) that supports this crappola, and it the right who supports the idea to vote it down. Bloomberg should step down and claim temporary brain malfunction.
