Amusing, but misleading. NYC Mayor Bloomberg is gone (unless he's serious about running for President), and I think his attempted city ordinance (not NY State) against Big Gulps is gone, too.
Maybe SF has something like that, perhaps some guys here know. But such laws restrict the sellers, they don't penalize the buyers to my knowledge. Interesting, also, that the cartoon shows these guys being kinda paunchy.
Wasn't being overweight one of the the health concerns of proponents in limiting sugary drinks and unhealthy junk food? Along with a laundry list of other medical concerns? To reduce the cost burden and patient load on the health system? Ironically, this is a gay "health & fitness" site where things like Big Gulps and supersized burgers & drinks should be anathema.
And also oddly, similar to one of the health arguments the US Right Wing uses to close women's reproductive services clinics. "We Republicans are only concerned with the health safety of women, so these clinics have to close. Women cannot be trusted to choose for themselves. We majority, non-medically-trained males in the legislature must do it for them."
I guess which health issue you focus on, and how you interpret it, depends upon your personal ideology. And how about Right Wingers wanting to peer inside our bedrooms, at our private sexual practices, to police any that don't conform to their political and religious beliefs?
So please, no misleading cartoons here about who's snooping on who. (From conservativedailynews.com, BTW). I don't want any overly obtrusive government at all, but if I only had the choice between 2, I'd rather have a well-meaning nanny state from the Left, than an oppressive Big Brother state from the Right.
