    How about if NY just banned bratty kids and overprotective enabling parents? Ice cream vendors and single people like parks too. :doubt:

    The government is now the parent.

    Is it possible for the parent of fat kid to say no ice cream, but allow the parent of the hyperactive rail thin kid to buy a cone? No, it is not part of the equality of fat.

    An occasional ice cream isn't going to make a kid obese.

    Banning everything that tastes good is sure to make kids obese because they'll never learn not to overindulge.

    And BTW today I am making some home made coffee ice cream with chocolate covered espresso beans in it, home made hot fudge and whipped cream.

    I better watch out for the fucking food police huh.

    It just cracks me up that these parents in Brooklyn are more afraid of ice cream than junkies, gangs, and air pollution.

    If you want your kids to grow up without negative environmental factors, move to a cabin in the woods. And then demand that the government ban grizzly bears.

    Do that and start growing and making all your own food I guarantee you anyone who does that will be healthy. But people don't want to take care of themselves anymore.

    OMG! My favorite!

    We live at the beach where ice cream is sold all day. My kids were told they could get it at 3:00 on Sundays, IF THEY WERE GOOD. It was a special treat and a reward. Believe it or not, kids stop asking if they know the rules.

    But it sounds like these nutty parents don't like making rules. Best if the nanny govt. does it for them.

    The Obama girls went to Vegas and guess what they had.

    Fudge and ice cream.

    It would be nice if our first family set an example for the rest of us. You know.....walk the walk, not just talk the talk.

    Nevadans are still pissed about Obama telling us not to blow our college money at the casinos. Several conventions cancelled after Obama's speech.

    Currently Nevada has the worst unemployment in the nation.

    Obama spent a total of 3 hours in Nevada this week and moved on. He doesn't do well in front of a less than enthusiastic crowd.

    Ridiculous. Why aren't the parents parenting their kids? Why aren't the parents saying 'no, you can't have any ice cream from the truck'? Why aren't they putting limits on when/how much their kids can buy from the ice cream truck? Idiotic, nanny state morons is why.

    When I was a kid we were allowed to buy from the ice cream truck on rare occasions . . . so rare that I remember doing it. Dick was the guy who drove the ice cream truck (I can still remember what he looked like too) and he was very nice to the kids, often letting them go into the truck to ring the ice cream bells. I never felt denied and didn't bug my parents about it because I knew the rules. Our kids can buy from the ice cream truck no more than twice in a season (beginning and end of it). I think he sells Blue Bunny; growing up it was Good Humor. Good Humor ice cream is better.

    Liberals are a freedom loving sort. The governent shouldn't be telling people not to get high or dictating what they can and cannot put in their own bodies. That's for drugs, for ice cream, the government is protecting people's health.
