#4 The Beverage Association is merely giving Bloomberg a reason to regulate MORE than just soft drinks.
This is just the start. If they whine "This was too trivial to revolt over!" answer "If so, then it was too trivial for you to regulate!"

#5 How long has it been since a public official was tarred and feathered by a mob?
That would be something to see, boy howdy.

#6 Let's be real, if the drink comes out of a soda fountain they'll just adjust the content and price to 15.5 ounces instead of 16 ounces.
If it comes out of bottle the bottles will disappear and people will instead buy two cans (24 ounces and extra recycling waste).

#7 I see a future thriving market for my side-by-side taped-together dual (but still separate containers) 15.8 ounce cups. I call it the "double barrel".
That would be quite the rebel's product in a gun-controlled (and now, soda-controlled) big city, eh?!
Kickstarter project to start in 3 ... 2... ;-p

#8 There's ALWAYS a way around ANY Oppressive law.
You'd think the Officials would recognize it and repeal these laws?

#9 I can't imagine the people of New York like Bloomberg. A tyrant who thinks he knows what is best for everyone--no one is that smart. NYC needs the light of democracy to shine there.

#10 So...you get a smaller cup and just keep refilling it. 32=16x2=8x4
But don't let conflicting studies [just like MMGW, the science is settled] stop you from imposing the New Age Big Brother Socialism Puritanism.
