re: “The measuring cups that we will be issuing ... will be able to contain 17 fluid ounces, Kass said. Inspectors will be instructed to issue a violation only when a cup is found to clearly exceed 16 ounces when measured in the inspectors measuring cup, he added.”
You gotta be frigging kidding! Yeah, just another stupid, liberal “got to control” everyone idea.
Can’t you just buy TWO sixteen ounce sodas and by-pass this stupid thing?
That, my FRiend, is the entire idea in a nutshell.
Approximate prices I see around here are 16oz drink = 99 cents; 24 oz drink = $1.19; 32 oz drink = $1.49. Now, 2-16 oz drinks = $1.98: which way does the city generate more sales tax revenue?
Even 2 or 3 cents/drink, times a few million drinks per day really adds up.
Yes, you can just buy two and if I were in business in NY, I’d be advertising and offering a two-for-one purchase on soda with a free car caddy thrown in after a certain number of purchases.
Bloomberg is the perfect example of what’s been wrong with the GOP. Too many Bloombergs pretending to be righties, when they are really fascist lefties in disguise. There must be some kind of litmus test that we could use in vetting them. Except for the fact that lefties will lie even on the Bible, if necessary.
