I’ll never go back; not even for a Broadway Play and dinner. Never, ever again.

Might as well ban movies!

Libtards=morons!

There will soon be a huge black market in these items and
the tax revenues won’t be paid and then they’ll raise taxes
some more.

Medical studies clearly indicate that individuals who remain sexually active late in life live longer. Since the government is so concerned about my health, I demand free Viagra.

Hmmm. I'll pass on the Viagra but how about health-a-tutes?

Plenty of info on the Temperance Groups. I have some interesting items circa 1825) from back then and smoking was a biggy.

It was really all about controlling men.

But what about controlling women?? They have their babies KILLED with the blessings of govenment. Sick...just plain sick...

We had an historic (baloney) house in the next town over. "The boys" built it so they could smoke and drink. Basically, it was a club house. The historian said it was because the women didn't want the smoke in the house but there's no documentation ("0") to back that up.

It was built in the 1930's so it's hardly historic....not in that area...

I checked into the folks living at that time. This was simply a club....had nothing to do with their old ladies....except to get away from them. There were actually a couple joints around Town...And rather exclusive to one set of immigrants.

I made the same pledge last time I was there and I intend to keep it. That was 20 years ago.

I am so disgusted with day old popcorn and watered down drinks at WAY too high prices at the moviehouse.

I bring in my own bottled water and snacks from now on.

Our local theater has all but stopped selling tickets out front, you are forced to buy them at the refreshment counter, whats is next, are they going to start searching people for hidden snacks brought in from outside?

After many years of an aging old theater we were grateful for a modern one with Real 3D, but I refuse to buy their snacks anymore.

Prohibition was passed in a perfectly constitutional manner and so was it’s repeal.

This nonsense is pure despotism and should be met with violent force from federal marshals.

Don’t these morons realize that by limiting the size of “sugary drinks” or popcorn servings people who really want more will simply buy more of what they want?

Then we'll TAX the crap out of the offending item! Make it so expensive that they can't afford to buy more!

(Didn't you learn anything from the way they handled cigarettes?)

Anyone know where I can score some popcorn..?

Those guys on the corner standing in the doorway have some. But don't tell them I sent you!

They should say what the pro-abort feminazis have said for years, “its my body” in regard to the foodnazis.
