OK, readers I know that I have thrown some curve balls at you in the past but I promise what I am about to say is oh so real. The mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg has proposed a soda law that would prohibit businesses from selling drinks over 16 ounces in size. That’s all good but check this: Governor Andrew Cuomo also proposed a new bill that would lower the penalty for those caught in possession of an ounce of marijuana. And of course, the the media has got hold of this interesting conundrum. New York Times, Huffington Post, even Jon Stewart have been discussing the fact that if both of these bills are passed, soda beverages 16oz and higher will be subject to a $200 penalty while all drug transactions 25 grams and under if caught walk away with a $100. Honestly, this sounds pretty fair to me, seeing how the majority of humanity drinks soda and such a small percent take part in recreational pot smoking. This plan, if voted yes will be a great step forward to a healthier America. The mere comparison alone in the media should be eye opening to the public. Have we lost our self control? Do we really need legislature to tell us to be healthy? I think not but the government thinks so. If we had taken charge of our bodies from the start there would be no fines. Fines = lack of responsibility. People are fined for parking in the red, running a stop sign and coming, soon drinking and selling sodas over 16oz. I love it!!!!!
Drink water, there's no fine!
