NYC’s Nancy, Nanny State Mayor Bloomberg Goes Soda Nazi: No Sugar For You!
The proposed ban would affect virtually the entire menu of popular sugary drinks found in delis, fast-food franchises and even sports arenas, from energy drinks to pre-sweetened iced teas. The sale of any cup or bottle of sweetened drink larger than 16 fluid ounces — about the size of a medium coffee, and smaller than a common soda bottle — would be prohibited under the first-in-the-nation plan, which could take effect as soon as next March.
It may have been funny on TV, but this is ridiculous.
NYC's new anthem, No Sugar Tonight. Geez….
The Guess Who, No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature" is a song by the Canadian rock band, The Guess Who. It was released on their 1970 album, American Woman, and was released on the B-Side of the "American Woman" single edited to remove the "New Mother Nature" section. The single was officially released as "No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature" and peaked at #1 on the RPM magazine charts (3 weeks) and on the Billboard charts. In Cashbox, which at the time ranked sides independently, "No Sugar Tonight" reached #39.
