    I can't imagine not being able to get a 20 oz soda if I wanted to or a large coke. Wtf.

    It's bizarre that people allow the government to tell them how big of a soda they can buy. Seriously....WTF.

    When laws go in place literally stating its illegal to buy or sell a fucking soft drink over 16 oz, there's a big problem.

    How dare you question our benevolent leaders. Please report to Obama Camp for reeducation.

    Well, you guys are the fattest nation on earth so you clearly cannot control yourselves and you're costing taxpayers huge money by clogging up the healthcare system with your heart attacks and ankle drainings.

    The message is clear. Don't be huge glutonous fat asses and stop pounding soda pop into your obese melons.

    Do people really think the sodas are the problem? It's what the fatasses are eating that's the problem. Want 4 Double Quarter Pounders and 20 Nuggets? Sure! Here ya go....but don't even think about drinking anything larger than a medium soda or else the government gonna git ya!

    Want Taco Bell 7 days a week...no problem. Of course, when a law like this happens its only a matter of time until the other shoe drops.

    its a deterrent and a start to tackling the obesity problem in the US.

    Childhood obesity is through the roof as well.

    So you think it's okay for the government to dictate the amount of soda a person can drink? You really think that's the lawmakers place?

    Plus, you all can't even figure out which Maple Leaf to put on your money and that maple leaf is like tits to you all. To the rest of the world it's just a leaf but to Canadiens, it's your Liberty Bell, Statue of Liberty and Bald Eagle all rolled into one:

    You're exactly right and its an absolute embarrassment but its America and if you're gonna be a disgusting fatass, go for it. Fact is, it's not the sodas, it's the food.

    You're thinking about the issue exactly backwards. We need LESS government involvement in these fat fucks' entitled lives so they can't afford to be lazy fat medical cess pools.

    EXACTLY!!! A woman I work with was 400+, just left to go on disability. She ate absolutely horribly, every one of her health issues as a result.
