Not only the recent bans on various food and drink by the mayor of NYC, but this comment from him yesterday:
Speaking about government: “I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom."
Should! You know what? You and I may think big sodas and other foods are ridiculous but history is replete with examples of governments which started infringing on individual rights with small things and pretty soon they took charge of the big things. No one should be nodding his/her head in agreement with government having the right to infringe on rights we've had since the founding.
He might want to consider the fact that he won't be in office forever and by opening this door he might find his rights infringed on.
