    Okay, I can go with calm but concerned. I don't like any nanny-stateism. If anything on your list raises my blood pressure, it would be the light bulbs!

    Agreed!

    Okay, so a supermarket or convenience store can sell a 2 liter bottle of soda, but can a pizzeria? Are they allowed to deliver it, or do they have to divide it up into single-serving bottles?

    C'mon, doesn't this strike you as just a little bit, well, stupid?

    If the nitwits in NY allow Bloomberg to keep instituting mandates like this it opens the door for future 'Tammany Halls' and such to dictate just about anything. How you can or cannot cook, what you can or cannot eat or drink, where and when you can or cannot smoke and on and on. And ... it sets a bad example for statist democrats who want this power on the federal level.

    Liberalism is a fatal disease. Woe to the host that gets infected.

    Bloomberg is a crook. New Yorkers are allowing this to go on.

    This is the type of stuff that annoys the hell out of me with northeast so called conservatives. I'm subjected to visiting that area, Maine and NH and occasionally the People's Socialist Republic of Massachusetts and I have yet to find a real what I call conservative.

    I've read here and in other places that there's a vast gulf between northeast conservatives and southern and western conservatism. You can't really understand it though unless you experience it first hand. To them, I'm a right wing radical. To me, they're liberals.

    Bloomberg specials: 16 oz drinks with pre-packaged sugar packets attached to them. I would stick the stupidity of this nanny Statism in DUmberg's face.
