    Oh...just great. This country is leading more and more in the hands of socialist liberals who have nothing more to justify than leading this nation into a fascist communist nation! I wish someone would try and take my soda pop! That's ALMOST worse than trying to take my guns, and I'll put up a hell of a fight for any liberal who tries to take my guns!!!!!

    Now that I agree with. Soft Drinks were not sold in vending machines at my school and that was more than 20 years ago. I don't think it did much good though. I do like the idea though and find that much easier to digest than raising taxes and punishing stores that sell it.

Add a tax to the soda itself (which is already being talked about on a national level) but why penalize the retailer? Should we put an age restriction on it....warning labels...

    Ya I know and thats another thing that chaps my behind. I am so sick of "Its for the Children" defense in matters like this. I have 3 boys. We keep a small amount of Pop in the house. It is stored out in the Pantry. They are allowed to have a glass of it on rare occassions and know that they must have permission to do so. In 10 years me and my wife have not had a problem with our kids "sneaking" it, they know its a reward and for special occassions. I got a novel concept, its a , its called um, ya, Parenting thats it. Why don't the Gov't let people do it.
    Raising the tax on pop is not going to bring down obesity nore is it going to disuade people from drinking it.
    If a kid wants to get his hands on a damn Dr. Pepper he will, just like they routinely get their hands on beer and smokes.

    Here ya go Kieth

    And, as Abel Gonzales Jr. freely admits, it's not health food. At 810 calories a stick, the golf ball sized chunk of butter in his deep fried masterpiece clocks in at around 405 calories per ball, and that's before it's injected with flavoring, wrapped in dough and dunked in a vat of oil. As for flavorings, you can go the purist route and savor your butter ball plain, or choose from grape, cherry or garlic if you're looking for a bit more piz***. Gonzales plans to serve 3 or 4 balls per order because "any more than that would be a little bit too much."

When all social activist nutcases have won their little wars in telling you, how to live your life, whats next?
    I am so sick and tired of everyone telling me how to live my life. I rarely drink soda, not because I'm some fitness guru, I just dont care for the taste. I do drink beer, because I like it. I occasionally have me a nice fat cigar, because I like it. I like having a big double cheeseburger loaded with thick sliced bacon and a big order of fries slathered with chili, wash it all down with a tall iced mug of cold brew, then burn me a stogie afterward, what effin business is it of yours????
    I don't do this daily, I do it when the mood strikes me, usually to reward myself. I don't need to hear anyones lip when I want to. Moderation is the key.
    I guess everyone should be vegan. Though if that were the case, trust me someone out there somewhere would still try to tell you what is best for you and try to impose it on you. Mind your own and I'll do the same!

    Come to think of it, beer is notorious for causing obesity. They should ban it, too. I am sure that the nearby vintners would support such a law.
    Beer causes obesity in adults not children. Soda is 100% bad for you where beer has some nutritional value. It's made from barley and all that stuff. Plus it makes you smarter. I mean, it did make Bud wiser.
