Well, you have to be practical about what legally you can do and what people will do,” said Mr. Bloomberg. “The nice thing about the soda thing is it’s really just a suggestion. So, if you want to buy 32 ounces,  you just have to carry it back to your seat in two cups. And maybe that would convince you to only take one, but if you want two you can do it. I think government’s job … is to give you advice, not to force you do things.”

There does seem to be a limit to what the guy will propose.

By the way, the government’s constitutional duty is to provide any protection of your freedoms not otherwise already provided by the state you live in.  Has nothing to do with advising you on the serving sizes of what you eat and drink or how much volume your phone will pump into your headphones.

Get.  Off.  Me.

Fascinating after 50 years of pushing wheat, corn and soybeans on the front end with ag subsidies and on the back end by making it the misguided pillar of the suggested food pyramid.
