    [Is there nothing that escapes Michelles and the Food Police's all seeing gaze in their never ending search to slim and trim the American diet down? Not that the Saracen scimitar won't itself have a profound trimming effect when Barry eventually declares Sharia the law of the land, too]

    "Have a Coke and a smile . . . you racist bastard!

    Via Daily Caller:

    “Spread of soda tax fizzles,” read a headline last week on authoritative state politics website Stateline. We shouldn’t pop the champagne cork just yet, though. Anti-sugar activists are still gunning for soft drinks.

    Apparently, sugary beverages like soda, juice, and sports drinks are so nefarious that they warrant a two-day conference this summer. In June, the food-police Center for Science in the Public (or, really, their own fringe) Interest is rallying the troops in Washington, D.C. for another push to put the government in a wide swath of beverages. This follows on CSPI’s recent lead balloon of last fall’s “Food Day,” which generated noise but little else — similar to the prospects of this conference. [...]

    But perhaps the most nauseating session will examine the “impact of sugary drinks in communities of color.” We can already guess what the conclusion will be: Soft drinks disproportionately “harm” urban minorities."

    OMG I can just see where this is going.
    It's those evil corporations selling their evil devil drink
    to those poor people in neighborhoods of color.
    Dooming these people to a lifetime of misery deliberately.
    I feel a visit from the good Reverend Al Sharpton
    and another cash payout to Rev Jesse Jackson
    not to stage a boycott on soft drinks.

    Isn't "sugary drinks" in the ghettos what led to all the drug use? We have to ban this immediately.

    The amount of "outrage" that you guys can boil up on command is amazing to me.

    Who the fuck cares what the agenda is at a lobbying conference?
