Freaking out? People are freaking out? Yeah, I saw the headline on the story, I watched the video and read the story. I missed the freaking out part I guess.

I suppose the left might freak out, concluding that people aren't smart enough to know if they should buy the beverage or not - it has a lot of sugar, and the stupid masses could never make a proper decision on their own. Especially in New York.

It was actually a staunch Republican that I work with that I first heard about this thing from, lol. I have a feeling it is going to bridge the political gap and bring everyone together.

It's well known that republicans like their coffee! And us coffee lovers are lucky that Howard Schultz (Starbucks owner) is such an avid lefty! That may have been the only thing that has kept the left from declaring coffee a drug, subject to ridiculous regulation and ridicule.

I look forward to everyone coming together.

So, you think the only place there are stupid masses is in New York? Here's a little secret - there are stupid masses everywhere. You couldn't wing a dead cat and not hit a dummy.

Gosh no! I presented only one example. Do you recall when the New York governor banned large soft drinks in New York, because he knew better what size soft drink people should have than the people themselves.

That was the MAYOR of New York, not the governor. In reality, he was right, but it isn't up to the government to tell me how much soda I can drink. By the way, I don't drink soda.

Thank you for your correction. I'm glad I got the New York part correct.

If he were right, then he could have purchased only smaller servings. He can't be right and wrong at the same time Linn. And, you are correct, government needs to keep out of our business.

So, he's free to express his opinion - but not force his opinion on us. Whether you drink soda or not is not the issue. I don't drink much soda either - my concern is in regard to government over reach, regardless of whether it affects me personally or not. Cuz, sooner or later, it WILL affect us all. The left usually moves in baby steps. (Not universally true - Obama took giant steps all over the Constitution).

I agree with you that we need less government overreach. He was right in that too much sugar is bad for you, but wrong in trying to mandate what people can or cannot consume.

I never did understand his logic. Well I kind of see it but if someone wanted a big drink and was banned, they would get two smaller drinks and that would add two cups to the trash problem instead of one. I see the individual coffee disposable cup the same way. More trash fill. These things are not being well thought out.
I've never been a Starbucks because I'm not paying $7 for a 25 cent coffee.

I get that. But, here's the deal - the mayor made it clear that it was the serving size he objected to. So rather than just buying smaller sizes for himself - he makes it unlawful for anyone to buy large servings.

Who the phuck does he think he is? It's the same BS as Obamacare - forcing people to buy something they may or may not want.

Government over reach.

Sorry, Ozzy - I know, I'm preaching to the choir on this.

Of course not! The method Prodigal! The over reach. And, I think you knew that - and still couldn't resist taking a poke at a non-existent flaw. (Careful - your left nut is showing!)

He's kind of a large man himself, so maybe it is his own inability to control himself that is at issue here.
Onocare is the boot on our necks to force us to pay for the idiots who make extremely poor choices in life. That's why the premiums and deductibles are so high - those who don't have hc don't care and those of us who pay can't afford to use it anyway. I just straight paid $110 for chest xrays. It was a hell of a lot easier than going through insurance. Trump could make it a lot easier if they put in the new hc bill that straight pay goes toward the deductible but insurance co's would not allow that because they lose their cut of the pie.
Sorry about the rant to you, I know you already know this stuff.

And, my favorite coffee is a Starbucks brand. Their house blend is what we grind and drink at home.

Starbucks is overrated and over-priced so I have no desire to try it. I'd rather make my own coffee.

I have never been to a Starbucks. All I want is a cuppa coffee. It should be hot, over 190F, and it's worth a buck to me. If I don't get it, I will survive.
