Thoughts on Mayor Bloomberg's attempt to have soda not eligible to be purchased with food stamps:
1) Excellent idea. They are called food stamps. Not soda stamps. In fact, no beverages should be eligible for purchases with food stamps. If you want something to drink, the city already provides water for free. Take advantage of that wondrous program.
2) With that being said, I don't give a fuck if a person mainlines Mountain Dew into their neck. As long as they pay for it. But if you life is in such a state that the state has to provide you food; it has the right to restrict the types of food/drinks that you get for free courtesy of the U.S. tax payer.
