This will send even more NYC expatriates headed south. Oy vey. On the positive side, think of the 'bootlegging' economic opportunities for smuggling 16+ ounce sodas into New York. 'Sheesh, Officer, it must have fallen off a truck. How was I supposed to know? You know I can't read or do math thanks to NYC public schools'. The courts will be hiring as will NYPD to enforce all the felony possession of soft drink laws, and teachers to teach reading and 'rithmatic. Obama said we need more COPS, teachers and government prosecutors to stimulate the economy didn't he?

Should they come South, they best leave their socialist ideologies back in NY.
they have already screwed up the once dependable Floda ( a li'l NY mafioso lingo)
Many of them have also infested N.Carolina.
They reminds me of Moslems,illegals ,et al who comes here and want to brung their country here. If this is waht this is waht this Ilk wants, why not stay home in NY or anyother place.

The only way to fix that problem Frank, is to pass a law that if you flee a socialist city or state to get away from the policies that you helped create, you are not allowed to vote in your new home state for at least 20 years.

Oh, they never do. They love to come south and tell us all how we should be living and how things were so much better up in NY...the place they just fled. They never resolve their voting habits once they arrive.
The New York City Board of Health today approved Mayor Michael Bloomberg's proposal to ban sugary drinks that come in sizes larger than 16 oz on a unanimous 9-0 vote. This was mildly surprising considering the national controversy that broke out in the wake of Bloomberg's initial plan, but the New York City bureaucrats have never been receptive to public outcry.

The measure, unless blocked by a judge, will take effect in six months. The health board vote was the only regulatory approval needed to become binding in the city, but the American soft-drink industry has strongly opposed...
