Best idea the mayor won't think of, learning about nutrition. I think it's absolutely ludicrous to ban ANY food. Americas are free to fill up on whatever crap they want or take a healthy approve and avoid harmful foods like sodas and dairy products. But popcorn? Come on you fool, popcorn is a healthy alternative until you fattening it up with that butter flavored oil. What's next? Banning beef?

The corporations involved are jumping on the big gov bandwagon. They have heavy hitting PR militia bearing a "we care about you" theme, all the while touting new laws banning food & drinks instead of teaching nutrition.

Instead of banning larger contained items, how about going after GMO's and other shit like HFCS and the garbage they put in fast food. Even a better idea would be to double or triple the price of fast food and reduce the price of organic and natural fruit's, vegetables by 80%. Maybe the public will eat more healthy foods if they could afford them.

Control of any substance always leads to overuse..it's human nature for God sakes!!

City health weasels go ‘pop’

Mayor Bloomberg’s proposed ban on sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces could also include massive buckets of buttery movie-theater popcorn, as far as members of his Board of Health are concerned.

“The popcorn isn’t a whole lot better than the soda,” said Bruce Vladeck, a senior adviser at Nexera Consulting and one of the mayor’s appointees to the 11-member board.

The board yesterday agreed to put Bloomberg’s big-soda ban up for a public hearing July 24, but also talked about the merits of limiting other high-calorie treats.

Someone needs to remind the people of New York to stop electing people who think government should run their lives.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

This kind of thing is just more evidence of liberals not minding their own business. Ever notice how they believe it's their duty to tell everyone else how to live, while they continue to do whatever the hell they want to.

I watch my weight and what I eat. I exercise it's hard work BUT I don't care what anyone else eats, or how much they weigh. This is America and if they want to overeat that IS NOT ANY OF MY BUSINESS or Mayor Bloombergs or Michelle Obama's

I am not sure if this was said, but popcorn (without the butter) is chocked full of more antioxidants than a lot of veggies.

I agree, but he was by far the best choice. The Demoncrat Mayoral candidates in NYC are always far worse than what we've been seeing out of him.

BTW, I just heard on the radio that the Bd. Of Health also wants to ban milkshakes. They're going to have one public hearing on this subject. That should be fun. I've been to a couple of public hearings in NYC. They're usually WILD!!
