A judge says that New York City could ban all large sized sugary drinks if they want, but they can’t ban just some of them.
Just wait, Judge. Just wait. That may just be the plan.
Wonder who the biggest defender of the stupid ban would be? How about “sugar researcher Dr. Robert Lustig, a professor of medicine at the University of California San Francisco”? He is big on this move by the government to save people from the sugar menace.
His defense of the sweeping anti-obesity move? “Certainly the Bloomberg Big Gulp ban is not going to solve obesity, but you know what? It’s a good baby step,”
What? That’s the best you’ve got? Baby step?
Well, he went on to say, “It’s going in the right direction.”
Going in the right direction. So to solve obesity (whatever that means), forced portion control is going in the right direction?
Anybody want to defend that thinking or where it ultimately leads?
