Nanny State Clamps Down on Salt

393

New Yorkers loved the nanny-state aspirations of Michael Bloomberg so much, they went and elected a Democrat mayor who also believes the government should tell people what to eat. So they should surely be cheering the decision of an appeals court this week that says NYC can begin fining restaurants that don’t properly label salty foods.

Mayor Bill de Blasio praised the decision and the “common-sense regulation that will help New Yorkers make better decisions and lead healthier lives.”

The regulation, which compels restaurants to put a little salt shaker icon next to menu items that contain more than 2,300 mgs of sodium, was passed in December. It has been mired in the courts since then, however, as the National Restaurant Association fights the rule.

“Today’s decision will force the men and women that own New York City’s restaurants to start complying with this unlawful and unprecedented sodium mandate before the court has the chance to rule on the merits of our appeal,” said the group after the decision.

In light of the ruling, NYC officials can begin levying fines of up to $600 against restaurants found to be violating the regulation.

The salt warning is hardly as cumbersome as Bloomberg’s proposal to ban 2-liter sodas, but it’s all part of the same philosophy. Americans are too stupid to figure out the complexities of eating healthy, so the government must guide this poor, ignorant flock back to pristine pastures.

The thing is, anyone even slightly concerned about their diet is not going to be scarfing down meals with a day’s worth of salt in them to begin with. And anyone who doesn’t care won’t be made to care by a picture of a salt-shaker.

Even if the regulations would make a difference, it wouldn’t justify them.

Religious freedom laws compel the government to meet a high standard when curtailing a person’s rights. We should consider adopting that standard for every action of the government. If regulators want to step in, they should be forced to prove their case. As it stands, zealous regulators act on hunches, theories, and an overwhelming desire to fill the public coffers with private profit. And every time they act, our freedoms are diminished.

Does the government have an interest in protecting the public health? Of course. That’s what awareness programs are for. That’s what research is for.

But there’s a world of difference between telling your citizens what they should do and telling them what they must do. In a free country, we should save the latter for only the most serious of circumstances.

Pass the salt.

    It would be nice if food manufacturers would voluntarily stop adding so much salt to packaged foods, but it seems extreme to make restaurants do this, and very costly.

    A better move would be like th UK, where manufacturers are banned from adding salt to packaged foods. Telling someone not to do something is much better than making them add staff to comply with a labelling directive.

    1. gonzales27 says

      And how many State employees will they have to add to carry out the inspections?The price of restaurant food is going up.

    The progressives won’t be happy until they control every aspect of a human being life. That is not Freedom.

      Attempted suicide is a crime.
      Suicide is also, but that one cannot be punished.
      .
      Too much dietary salt is a slow form of suicide.

        2. jimmy midnight says

          Easy now, friends and neighbors, we’re only only talkin’ about an information requirement here.

          When you’re eating a lot of processed food, you’re also eating a pantload of added salt, count on it. Knowledge is power in out own health and diet also.

          Oh, sorry Mr. Mad, you were joking–at least in part. So am I. On the other hand, what we do and do not put into ourselves is pretty significant.

          1. MAHB001 says

            Individual freedom is more important than having the Government take responsibility for your every action.

            I guess that is what happens in a communist state, the Government regulates.

          2. jimmy midnight says

            But on the other hand, how aware are you of the amounts of added salt, and in many cases, sugar, in stuff like: bread, spaghetti sauce, salsa, bread, bottled salad dressing et cetera?

            This doesn’t mention the obvious chips. sodas. cookies, candy, and what not. (Hey, watch out for those what nots!)

            Mr. Mad, I have something of a Chemistry background, and have been an avid reader of ingredient labels for longer than I’d care to comment on. Would you believe me if I said they were inadequately informative?

          3. MAHB001 says

            mmmmmmmmmmmmm what nots…………..

            Sure I would believe you.

            I would say that it is even difficult for science to identify all the ingredients in foods, especially all the way back to the source elements. Which is what is on those food labels these days…

            I used to work in an industry that made life sustaining devices, we had to trace the IC’s we used all the way back to the dirt that was in the silicone.

            These things add cost, some, like the little kid selling lemonade, and the corner baker, simply don’t open the store because of the burdensome regulations that are now required.

          4. Ted Crawford says

            In reality, were they to be perfectly informative, they would read, this product is full of dangerous and harmful additives! Buy fresh, or frozen or, better yet, grow and prepare your own! So bloody what, HOW is any of that ANY of your business in the first case?

          5. ABO says

            And the lemmings fall in line, marching toward the cliff.

          6. Ted Crawford says

            And should be perfectly personal!

      2. Ken says says

        Inadequate salt is sure death. Suicide can’t be punished? Have you contemplated it?

          One can only pray that these liberal morons will get so upset with our strength they will commit suicide or late term abortion on themselves

          2. ABO says

            Never has (been able to stand the truth) never will, DA. Completely delusional, narcissistic, nutcase liberal lemming. Claims she has earned a fantastic array of degrees from colleges and universities all across the nation and at various times has practiced as an MD, a lawyer and a world famous diplomat. I’d say more likely a world famous Loon.

          3. JoJo Gunn says

            How embarrassing it must be, that before responding to his or her mothers call, and trotting of to bed for school, he or she still found time to feed you a big ‘ol shit pie to eat. LOL

          Salt is Nada too much of the Liberal bullshit is a slow killer.

        6. AKLady2015 says

          Too much salt can damage the heart, aorta, and kidneys without increasing blood pressure. It can also lead to hypertension.

          1. Defend America says

            So what ? It is my life … my business… not yours are anyone elses. Why do so many people feel they have got to be my Mother ? I have a Mother she raised me …she taught me…she supported me not the government and not you.

            Do you people have so much time on your hands that all you can do is try to control others?
            I feel sorry for you must live a very lonely life. Have a good day…I will not respond to you again and I will not obey your wants. I am women and I will control my on life.

            PS: Thank you for the information but I too went to school …I also got an education.

          2. AKLady2015 says

            The law is not about you.
            The world does not revolve around you.

          3. Defend America says

            Kiss off.

          4. Ted Crawford says

            Do it revolve around the Salt and Soda Nazi’s then?

          5. Florida Rebel says

            Are you for real? I guess that because this is something you agree with that it’s perfectly okay for politicians/”government”/busybodies [such as yourself] to tell others exactly how to live their lives. I guess if it was something that you were against or found abhorrent, you would not be so quick to open your mouth. The law is not about YOU either nor does the world revolve just for you and I doubt that anyone here wants to bask in the glow you exude from your far superior education and intellect. How would you feel if you were REQUIRED to eat at least one meal a day made up of insects …. A few years back, the U.N. thought it would be a good idea for Americans to eat more insects. They are rich in protein, fiber, they are a healthy source of food… and would not be as much of a drain on resources to “farm” as our current diets of beef, pork, chicken, etc. Many countries eat various insects in their diets on a daily basis. So sit down, be quiet, do as you are told and… MANGIARE!

          6. Rick Esler says

            AK Lady?? “lady” really anyhoo, the word you are dodging in this discussion is FREEDOM. I….”I” as in the “individual” as in “Individual Freedom” read the Constitution get a grip. People can put salt , mayo, catsup, mustard, and my favorite hot gardenia on any damn food they want or don’t want to eat stay the hell out of peoples food.
            I’ll agree with on the liberal thing except the people that call themselves “liberal” they are “progressive leftists” and are not liberal at all they are quite the opposite from a literal sense, like calling a tall person “shorty”. IMO

          7. AKLady2015 says

            I have really bad news for you — the law is about all about freedom.
            Begin with the Constitution and educate yourself.

          8. Ted Crawford says

            By all means then Comrade, you clearly should consume at least a pound a day!

          9. AKLady2015 says

            It was only last month that you were kicked off another site for stalking. Looks like you are at it again.

          10. Ted Crawford says

            Really Comrade, just what site would that have been?

          11. Paul Burton says

            Liberalism also does damage…to people and country!

          12. AKLady2015 says

            Our Founding Fathers were liberals.
            Don’t take my word for it, ask the King of England.

          13. Defend America says

            That is why we fought England and made it America…for freedom.

          14. ABO says

          15. Defend America says

            I know she thinks she is the only one with any intelligence when in actuality she is the only one in need of an education.

          16. Sunny N says

            I am not going to respond to her but I want others to know that this person is repeating what the MSM is putting out there….. she is reading what liberals what people to think! Kidney damage comes from many chronic diseases and conditions and she is claiming salt! hahaha! She is a dweeb…… Eating fat and animal products clogs the arteries…. it results many times in atherosclerosis more so than any damage salt can do…. You need salt in your system. It is a mineral which contains iodine. She is an idiot….. Go off meat and dairy for a week. Most will see a reduction in blood pressure. The damage to the pancreas and liver is done by it trying to process too much meat. Yes, processed foods contain too much salt. The fat one eats is the fat one wears but most will not change their eating desires. Hence, obesity and Type II diabetes Mellitus (which she claims is from salt). LOL……..The American diet is not great and everyone knows it. This salt gig is a smoke screen!! Many are now eating meatless Mondays and cutting back and the meat and dairy industry are feeling the crunch. I think the really high prices were also a defining moment to go a few nights without meat.

          17. Defend America says

            I eat meat three times a day. I eat lots of salt. Sometimes by the handful. I am 125 pounds 5foot 6 inches my pancreases is fine…my blood pressure is excellent…no clogged arteries and so on. I do not believe it is what you eat as much as how much per meal. They use to tell you to drink plenty of milk…it made your bones strong. Now they tell you milk is bad…same thing with eggs. I listen to my body.

      4. Mathew Molk says

        Hey, You can’t be punished, so go ahead and take yourself out right now. – You won’t have to be concerned about me doing it slowly then.

        Gotta go, we are out of salt and my wife is making bacon and eggs for breakfast here. Got pick up some good German beer too to have with the Schnitzel tonight.

        —————-Rather live 50 happy years eating what ever I want then live to 110 and never have anything that actually tastes good.————-BYW- I’m 70 day after Christmas.

      5. Charlie says

        Just how much salt is slow suicide ? What about sugar , wheat , red meat , fried foods and all of the rest of the list that some profess to be harmful ?

        1. Deborah G says

          Micro managing other people’s diet is like herding cats. Can’t be done

          1. Charlie says

            🙂 Good analogy . Would truly love to see someone trying to herd cats !

          2. ABO says

            Particularly AKLady.

          3. ABO says

            Absolutely correct, Deborah, but liberals like AKLady are possessed of an uncontrollable need to control others. Rather ironic isn’t it?

      6. ThenStand says

        Not having enough salt causes death. Leave the people alone!

        And the amount I, or anyone else outside your limited sphere of authority, assuming you have any at all, which would be a terrible miscarriage of justice, IS NONE of you or de Blasios or anyone elses dam_ business! it’s patently obvious that you would quickly die without some politician to do your thinking for you, but most of the rest of us aren’t so terribly dependent!

      8. Sunny N says

        Eaten greasy fat riddled cholesterol rich meats and dairys….. high in fat content! with cells clogged with fat and the major cause of Type II diabetes…. so we gonna rule that restaurants can’t serve animal products ?? Health officials will tell you the salt is the least of the problem… Chicken is the worst…. next to red meat….. major cause of pancreatic and liver cancer…. so lets ban that also! Why pick on just the salt? This is just pathetic! It is another freedom taken not to mention no one will care there is a picture of a salt shaker… They go out to eat spaghetti ….. they will eat spaghetti…. with greasy meatballs and …… I think you need to get some medical education before you start telling people that the salt is a form of suicide…. whole natural foods with all the vitamins and minerals from the earth are what is needed…. ALL THE AMERICAN DIET is bad…. I want to know why the salt is addressed and not the oily greasy foods and tell the truth about animal products and dairy! Ask your doctor if dairy is not an inflammatory for the body! (Now I am off my soap box.) Sorry for the diatribe… But the SAD Diet is so bad…. major obese epidemic and the Dairy and Meat assoc. are in bed with the government and lying to everyone! Billions of dollars spent on marketing to lie to people. Common sense should tell people that an amimal meat that is muscle and all cholesterol clogs arteries along with the solid fatty cheese. They don’t need to address that because the Agencies in bed with the government won’t get kick backs. Do the research!

        1. AKLady2015 says

          Wrong.
          Fat is not the cause of diabetes.
          Cholesterol is not the cause of diabetes.

          Humans have a love affair with salt. Recent studies clrarly show that the brain reacts to salt the same way it does to heroin, cocaine and nocotine.

          Too much salt has many heath risks. The kidneys are over-worked. It lrads to the development of kindney stones.

          It also increases bone thining. Too much dietary salt leads to hypertension. High blood presure leads to heat disease. It also leads to stroke and lung issues.

          One recent study shows that individuals with diets high in salt also have greater risk of develioping stomach cancer.

          Oh, and for yourt information, I have the education:

          CEU – University of Alaska — Fairbanks

          1. Sunny N says

            I never said cholesterol was the cause of diabetes but the cause is that the cells are full of fat and the insulin can not travel to the brain. The brain needs the energy so the insulin is artificially inserted due to the gumming up of the cells and arteries with fat! You have no clue as you are not even talking science! You are uninformed and a very dumb person. Your ignorance shows! You think this is what causes stomach cancer? Really? Show me the research! Show me your proof! I read and work with research every day! So you are the reason the libs get away with their crap! You are the sheeply follower that is in the quite ignorant class. But, you have your right to believe whatever your heart desires….. just know that there are some that are smarter than you. So, you will have to live with that information. You are not the expert!

          2. AKLady2015 says

            Isulin is not used by the brain — in any form.
            Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that allows your body to use glucose.

            Put simply for the nonscientist, insulin is the “key,” which unlocks the cell to allow sugar to enter the cell and be used for energy.

          3. Sunny N says

            Glucose is the sugar! dumb dumb dumb dumb and your brain needs it!!! it comes from the insulin that is made!

          4. Sunny N says

            Humans have love affair with sugar. Humans have love affair with steak, humans have love affair with lobster, humans have love affair with milk shakes and fries so what is your point? Kidney stones are formed due to calcium deposits and the kidneys are taxed for many reasons…. !!!!!! You are a nincom poop….. hahahahaha! Calcium stones and too much ice tea drinking forms kidney stones…. yes too much salt does some harm but so does everything else! So pick on salt and take away peoples freedoms! Take it from me …. keep your day job and give up the playing nurse hahahaha!

          5. Sunny N says

            Read the real research. The ones that you are listing have funding from the Meat and Dairy industry………the research is backed by big $$$$$$$ yes the U.S.D.A. has fixed research results and there are law suits pending against the USDA for their Lying!!! These are liberal colleges and the USDA in bed with the government……………….Look that up! Anytime you see information on research before you can believe it AKLADY since you are so smart ! haha (a joke) Look to the money! Who did the funding….. Why don’t you try research that is done and funded by research scientists who are real doctors…….. Not College professor government funded liberal college tests…….. Who profits from research results being published….. You are a space cadet! Move on……

Also, there have been recent studies (from outside the States) showing that limiting salt as much as AMA & the Feds are stating isn’t good… same as the arguments for caffeine & many other substances. Remember the 50’s & 60’s when the fed was pushing iodine? Remember where they PUT the iodine? Yep – in SALT! So, now that we’re to limit our salt, whatever happened to the lack of iodine!?!?

        1. AKLady2015 says

          Actually, it was the 1940s and 1950s. The issue was iodine deficiency realted health problems, i.e., goiters. It is an unsightly, painful enlargement of the thyroid gland that manifests as an enormous swelling around the neck and larynx.

          The environmental toxin, perchlorate, now is found in all our food and water. Perchlorate blocks the thyroid gland’s ability to absorb and utilize dietary iodine

      2. Mark Brickey says

        Oh, but then the poor NYC’ers will need to think on their own, will need to actually go find jobs and actually learn responsibility and accountability!!!!

        1. Deborah G says

          Agreed. DeBlasio keeps trying to make NCY the once freest city in the world into a third world hellhol;e with free everything to illegals and people of color. Now THAT”S equality ……….NOT Equal responsibility is equality

        2. grafra102 says

          Mark: and all the lazy’s, and couch potatoes, straining our Social Systems getting FS, Welfare, and Medicaid, the more babies they have the more they get. I am on SS and 77 yrs old and I have a part time job. These damned people that don’t want to look for a job need to be “CUT OFF”!!!!!

          4. Mark Brickey says

            That’s a non sequitur, grafra, since sarcasm take intelligence to understand & recognize? That’s why 98% of Democrats & 100% of BLM, et al, don’t “get” sarcasm. A major lack of brain synapses firing in the right order!

          5. Jim says

    8. AKLady2015 says

      Having to pay your medical bills is not freedom.

      1. Florida Rebel says

        Somebody has to pay for them. NOTHING is free. I pay for mine and always have since the age of 16. You couldn’t get your working papers until the age of 16 and I started my first job [other than babysitting], on my 16th birthday. I don’t expect you or anyone else to pay for my health care nor do I feel I should have to pay for those that make their living by living off of others and staying on the public dole because they are too lazy to even attempt gainful employment. I also abhor “ObamaCare” and know many people who do not have the “required” coverage. Many of them have found ways around the requirement. Forcing the American citizens into accepting a system that they themselves are not required to accept is pure BS. I suppose you also believe that free housing should be available to all because every family needs shelter… right? Or is it only “refugees” and illegals that should be well taken care of while Veterans lose their homes, live on the streets, have to beg for their medical care?

    9. glock 19 fan says

      That is where the term “Totalitarian” comes from: controlling the “total person.” Obummer wants Obamacare to fail in order to impose totalitarian rule over all health care.

    10. Maria says

      Controlling our thoughts, our food and our money makes for a great Socialist government until they run out of money. How long would that take when our GDP is less than 1%?

  5. TheBucko says

    Costco and health food stores carry Pink Himalayan salt, which has minerals in it and is much better for you….

    1. 1BR_81 says

      Just got a supply a few weeks ago. Since it is pink it i even easier to see how much you have put on/in food.

      1. Jim McLaughlin says

        Isn’t pink a communist color? Will eating that pink salt turn you into a pinko liberal?

        1. AKLady2015 says

          Education causes people to become more liberal.

          1. ecogal says

            that’s what they like to tell everyone… money makes you more conservative.

          2. AKLady2015 says

            Well, that is what the right-wingers say.
            Didn’t you know. college is brainwashing. 😉

          3. John Doe says

            It also proves that you’ve had more than your share of being brainwashed…Uh Oh, that would require having a brain, rather than a sponge of which you prove daily.

      NaCl is a mineral.

  6. Francisco Machado says

    Does deBlasio Cook? Does he weigh the amount of salt he puts in his stew? His spaghetti sauce? Even his French fries? He’s OCD if he does. I’ve been cooking for over a half century and I have never, ever weighed the amount of salt – or even measured it – that I put in a dish. If it needs more, I add more. If there’s too much (and I’m light on salt so that’s very unlikely) I throw in a raw potato. Does he make dishes with salt cod? Common, if you’re Hispanic – I don’t know about Italians. You soak it to get rid of the salt. How do you measure what remains? This guy’s a psychiatric case.

    1. gonzales27 says

      What do you expect,he is a Liberal?

      1. Merle Dickey says

        It is all about control !

      2. ABO says

        You’re right. Kind of redundant.

    2. Deborah G says

  8. Jim Jordan says

    We should be doing what the colonists did to the Torrey leaders during the War for Rebellion in 1775-1783. Tar and feather the bastards, and run them out of town on a rail. Enough is enough as we let these uberliberal POS take away all of our rights. This once was s free country and we the people need to make it so again.

    1. Mathew Molk says

      Hey, I’ll warm up the tar kettle. We can stop at Lowe’s and pic up a 4×4… Get the feathers ad let’s go.

  9. Vinnie S. says

    Simple Solution ! Just let all customers know about the salt mandate by fatso the mayor and tell them salt will be made available to them at their tables if need be because we have been given a mandate about the amount of salt in food and because it would slow down our service to YOU ,OUR TREASURED CUSTOMERS, to have to measure each dish for the amount of “Salty Grams” involved , we have decided to eliminate the salt used in the cooking process so you can add your own to taste !!

    1. gonzales27 says

      Just make sure the Government auditors don’t catch you adding too many grains,it’s jail time and a fine.We should follow the MOOCH SCHOOL PROGRAM,$295 per meal KOBE STEAK.OOPS THAT’S ONLY FOR HER.

      1. Deborah G says

        She alos flies in Ribs from her favorite rib joint

        1. Retired Marine says

          And chicken and watermelon….LOL

      2. grafra102 says

        gonzales27: I agree with you, but the school I work at in Food Services the food looks good, the only thing is it is flat in taste. Actually we cook our food like one would at home it just is flat tasting..

        1. gonzales27 says

          That comes with no seasoning.I have high blood pressure and only use pepper to season.Most pre- prepared foods are already loaded with sodium for preservation.

          1. grafra102 says

            gonzales27: You can always use Mrs. Dash, that is what I use to season my doggies food, because salt is not good for them like other things. I take BP medication so I have to be careful also. Mrs. Dash , no salt. Good luck buddy, and God Bless You.

          2. gonzales27 says

            Good advise,thanks

          3. grafra102 says

            gonzales27: Thank You sir.

          4. gonzales27 says

            You are welcome

    2. Bob Marcum says

      Hey, Vinnie; U’ve got the right attitude but, the wrong solution.
      U need to remember; cooks measure everything, put in their recipes, anyhow. This new rule
      doesn’t change any recipes. It only requires, the management to add the salt shaker icon, on the menu. It’s an added inconvenience and therefore; an added expense, to the restaurant. It’s a
      minor expense, but; a useless and un-needed expense and an intrusion into the affairs of private enterprise. The liberal government is simply ( as always is their nature of existence ), dictating to the private citizens, which is of course, a violation of our constitutional rights, which our forefathers ( and, more recently, our parents and children ), have fought and died for.
      It was someone, in an above comment, who said, there is a difference, between advising and dictating. Well; that’s obviously true. The next part of her statement is, ” failure to heed advice,
      is not followed by a $600 fine.” That fine only follows the defiance of a law. A good example, of
      the abuse of power, is the penalties levied, upon schools and state governments, who fail to
      follow obumma’s perverted desire, to force boys and girls to piss together. Next; he’ll be putting

      cameras in the restrooms, for confirmation, on following the rules. But; his real motive is to create

      a collection of videos, for his pediphile entertainment. It will also, get the children accustomed to

      feeling normal, about being naked, in the presence of the muslim pediphiles, in his church.

      1. Deborah G says

        I say get stickers with the sickle and hammer with DeBlasio dressed in a big Bird suit.

    Government by the Establishment, for the Establishment executed by their Professional Politician Puppets. IT IS TIME TO return to the Constitution and reclaim Government by the people, for the People. After 28 years of Establishment controlled Government it is time to throw the bastards out.
    Trump 2016 – the nonPolitician – an experienced Leader and Negotiator – Make America Great Again.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      Government of corporations, by corporations, for corporations

      1. Ken says says

        UR starting to get the picture. The Liberal Elite 1% control both Parties and for 28 years have run an agenda to destroy the USA . Trump 2016 – end the control by the Establishment and their Professional Politician Puppets.

        1. AKLady2015 says

          Darling child, Trump is poart of the 1%.
          Moreover, he and his daddy soaked Uncle for a big chunch of his stash.

          1. Ken says says

            Well Sweet Pee – I guess that is called business in NYC.

          2. AKLady2015 says

            I’m not your “Sweet Pee”.

            Oh, and that is correctly dstated as ‘Sweet Pea’.
            Sweet pea (Lathyrus odoratus) is a flowering plant

          3. Ken says says

            That’s OK – I’m not your “darling child” BTW “Sweet Pee” is spelled exactly as I intended – pee as in urinate.

          4. AKLady2015 says

            So childish.
            Prime example of what is wrong in this country
            Trump encourages it, he can’t fix the problems.

          5. Ken says says

            Sweet Pee – No one can fix your problem and hopefully there won’t be an attempt. All that is necessary to start to fix the problems of the Country is a Leader with business and negotiating skills. No more Professional Politician Puppets, Thumbs up for President Trump.

          6. Mathew Molk says

            Hope the HeShe shows up in Cleveland. We could have a REAL good time.

            Perfect

          10. ABO says

            And you are a blooming idiot. Appropriate, I’d say.

          11. Florida Rebel says

            You are so full of shit. In 1973 the Justice Department tried to sue Trump for discriminating against minorities when his properties were being rented. He was not fined. He even brought counter-suit against them for defamation but it was dismissed. After 2 years of the DOJ basically doing nothing and proving nothing, just wasting time and money, DJT agreed to send a list of the apt vacancies to a civil-rights group and allowing them first pick with applications of their choosing. Talk about discrimination? By doing this, the DOJ discriminated against every non-minority that could have been seeking an apt. Nothing was ever proven of discrimination and they still check on him to this day. [Talk about harassment?] Where do you get your facts? Or do you just make them up as you go along? BTW, do you honestly think he sits there and reviews rental applicants for the thousands of rental units that he owns? Also, what “chunk of his stash” did he and his daddy soak Uncle for? WTF are you talking about?

          12. ABO says

            Gee AKL tell us another story, Please.

            Love to get you on my jobsite. By 9:00 you would be calling me SIR!

            But then the actual working people would have put you in the dumpster by 7:45

          2. Florida Rebel says

            No, it is YOU that has no idea. You are a child gobbling up the pablum of those that wish to rule your every thought and action because you have lost the ability to think on your own. If it wasn’t for corporations where would you be? Who would be the employers? Who would be purchasing goods? Your idiocy astounds me.

          3. ABO says

            Well said, Florida. Her idiocy is indeed remarkable.

          4. ABO says

            You really have no intellect. So sad.

        2. Deborah G says

          The idiot doesn’t realize that we live in a Capitalist society THANK GOD> freedom comes from it not Socialism/Communism. Thank God for Corporations.

      3. Mathew Molk says

        As you never had a job I guess it’s feudal to tell you this, but our pay checks either directly or indirectly all come from your hated cooperations.

    2. Terry Rushing says

      I could not agree with you more. A good beginning would be “in house” by dumping McCain. Following that we need to remove Graham, Coker and so on. Naturally tossing Mitch into the ditch is also on the agenda.

  11. Darrel Dunson says

    I refuse to obey these stupid regs. Instead, I do not patronize any place that infringes on my rights. I advertise that I do not patronize local businesses that prohibit concealed carry. Bank out of state cause one bank advertises that it welcomes concealed carry and encourages employees to do the same. Most businesses try to backtrack their policies against but a few make lame excuses. All of them regret losing business. Once wrote a letter to lawmakers in another state against their refusal to honor my license there and encouraged fellow business owners to do the same. I don’t know how many of us boycotted that convention but the next year there was a concealed carry law there with reciprocal honors. It makes a difference. This is another good reason to not visit NYC next year. If I lived there it would be a good reason to move somewhere else. I love salt – Please pass the salt!

    Another reason for me to never go back to New York and for New Yorker’s to get out while the getting is good. Pretty soon they’ll not only tell you where you can pee, what you can not eat or drink but also when you can do them. Then they will when how and where you can travel in out or around the state of New York. I can hear those famous words again…”Papers please” and “Your travel authorization papers please”. Aaahh, the lovable Neo-Gestapo!

    1. AKLady2015 says

      That is exactly what Trump is promising.
      Suggest you might as well become accustomed to being treated that way.

          1. Debbie Allen says

            Your arguments ARE uninformed. history shows like most ‘progressives’ you have not thoroughly researched your “facts”. There are many articles on liberal sites and liberal media reports that attempt to proselytize those that do not wish to investigate any further as “THEY” must have done the extensive research needed to report the issue(s). Take a trip to you local library and spend some time going over the vast amount of political documentation. I have included just one of many non-partisan articles from a publication focusing on social and economic issues, not politics. Facts, just the Facts!

            According to an article written by Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson an adjunct faculty member, economist, and fellow for economic and social policy with The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College:

            In the politically motivated attempt to blame Republicans for the lower
            incomes in the 10 poorest states, CNN’s Cafferty and Democrats have
            taken one snapshot—of the census’ income statistics—and combined it with
            another snapshot—of current political leanings—to create the impression
            that Republican policies make America poorer.

            The more important factor is not the economic ranking of states at a point in time, but the overall trends. An important article by John Merline compared the economic performance of blue states and red states during the presidency of Barack Obama. The trend of economic indicators clearly favors Republican states. Democratic states have experienced lower growth in both jobs and income in the last few years. Home prices have fallen further in blue states,
            and their unemployment rates are higher. In other words, a dynamic
            economic analysis of the states casts a far more favorable light on
            Republican states than static analysis. Since real life is dynamic, not
            static, Republicans can make the stronger case about which party is best
            suited to lead the way to greater prosperity.

            The most fundamental difference between the data that conservatives
            prefer—that the 10 poorest cities are longtime Democratic
            strongholds—and the data that liberals will be more inclined to
            cite—that the 10 poorest states are predominantly Republican, is that conservatives can point to actual policies that Democrats implemented
            that contributed to the impoverishment of the cities, while the
            liberals cannot point to specific GOP policies that have caused the
            poorer states to lag behind.

            The Democratic case is illusory and circumstantial; the Republican
            case is solid and substantial. However, in a country where so many
            people are economically and historically illiterate, combined with the
            human proclivity whereby “a man hears what he wants to hear and
            disregards the rest” (Paul Simon, “The Boxer”), the Democrats may be
            able to score some points with a hollow argument. The Republicans,
            though, have the facts on their side.

            AND, BTW, the Government does not make money, they spend taxpayers
            money from “WE THE PEOPLE” So get that little ill informed bit of nonsense out of your head. Yes WE did build those roads, yes WE did build everything the Government wants us to believe they have done. Fact is without OUR money the Government can do nothing. As a small business owner I have watched as my peers fall due to regulations, fines and excessive taxation and mandates.

          2. AKLady2015 says

            Come up here to Alaska.
            I’ll show you fact and truth. I live with it.
            You are well-brainwashed.

          3. AKLady2015 says

            The data obtained through the U.S. Census is self-reported.

            Facts are facts.

            The ten poorest states have been that way since the Civil war. The difference is not politics, it is industry. The South is mainly agricultural. Your “democratic strongholds” are mainly poor Southerners who moved to Yankee land for work (several generations removed). The Union caused the problems with the post Civil War restrictions placed on the South. Study some history.

            On top of that, you can add the immigration from Europe. A prime example of that is the Irish Potato Famine.

            Your peers did not fail because of government, but it makes a good excuse/target to blame for one’s mistakes.
            I’ve investigated many of those failures:

            Poor planning is #1
            They skim cash.
            They fail to deposit payroll taxes.
            They fail to pay estimated income taxes.
            They violate employment laws.
            They violate employee safety laws.

          4. Bruce Rowley says

            The good thing is that you are a known, poorly educated, Kool Aid slurping troll. You are wrong more times than even being close to bring right. I cannot even converse with someone of your level of brainwashed. You need to go back into that left wing home in the ground and not come out until this planet explodes. I am sure your Kool Aid supply will last you in your safe, euphoric, drug induced state of mind. Now, go away like the good misinformed, ass clown followeing troll that you are.

          5. AKLady2015 says

            Come on up here to Alaska.
            I’ll be happy to show you climate change.

            The tundra was a tropical rainforest, in the past.
            It is becoming one again. Trees are growing there.

            Polar bears are dying of starvation. They canot hunt.
            The sea ice has melted.

            Buisnesses are closing — they depend upon snow to sell their
            products. During the last five winters, our ski resorts have had to make fake snow.

            Go back into your cave and smoke some more dope the right-wingers are giving you.

          6. Bruce Rowley says

            It must be warm in you cave in the bush, hey TROLL? Troll on, hag!

          7. ABO says

            When Alaska was a tropical rainforest there were no automobiles, no coal burning power plants, no industry. By your own words you have just thoroughly contradicted your heroes Obama and Gore in their fraudulent insistence that climate change is caused by those very things. Thanks AKL.

          8. BARRY SOETERO says

            Kalaphornia is the epitome of Blue State stupidity!

            “Gov. Jerry Brown has signed legislation requiring public schools to include the contributions of gay and lesbian people in their curriculum, making California the first state to adopt such a requirement.”

            A Silicon Valley lawmaker is gaining momentum with a bill that would require “climate change” to be among the science topics that all California public school students are taught. The measure, by state Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto,
            also would mandate that future science textbooks approved for California public schools include climate change.”

            “PASADENA (CBSLA.com/AP) — A bill authored by a Pasadena lawmaker that encourages schools to teach about the historical significance of Barack Obama becoming the nation’s first African-American president is now California law.”

            “California students score at bottom of nation in reading, math!-By Sharon Noguchi…California students continue to score near the bottom among states in math and reading, according to results of a national test released Thursday. The Golden State’s fourth-graders ranked 47th in the nation in both math and
            reading. Eighth-graders ranked 45th in math and 42nd in reading. And the scores show that the gap separating white students from their black and Latino peers in English and math is bigger in California than it is nationwide.”

            Allysia Finley with the Wall Street Journal explains: “UCs this year needed to spend an additional $73 million on pensions, $30 million on faculty bonuses, $24 million on health benefits and $16 million on collectively bargained pay increases. The regents project that they will require $250 million more next year to finance increased compensation and benefit costs.”
            Moreover, Finley reveals the extraordinary level of waste in the UC system: “Ms.
            Napolitano [President of the University of California] says that the UCs have cut their budgets to the bone, yet her own office includes nearly 2,000 employees—a quarter of whom make six-figure salaries. An associate vice president of federal government relations earns $273,375 a year, plus $55,857 in retirement and health benefits, according to the state controller’s office. Thirty professors at UC Santa Cruz rake in more than $200,000 in pay, and most faculty can retire at 60 and receive a pension equal to 75% of their final salary. More than 2,100 retirees in the university retirement system collected
            six-figure pensions in 2011.”

            Proposition 30 was passed by voters in 2012, raising the state sales tax by a quarter percentage point through the end of 2016. Additionally, it increased the personal income tax through 2018 on California residents with incomes over $250,000. The tax has generated $6 billion to $7 billion annually, making California’s coffers flush with cash once again. Prop. 30 was creatively advertised and sold to the voters by a union, the California Teachers Association, which depicted it as a “temporary” tax to support public schools.”
            “Most Californians would be surprised to learn that 100 percent of education’s share of the tax increase sold by Governor Jerry Brown will go to pensions instead of classrooms. But that would be no surprise to longtime observers of the California State Teachers’ Retirement System, which administers teacher pensions.”

            “African Americans were more likely to receive public assistance than
            other groups. In 2012, an average of 41.6% of African Americans received
            means-tested benefits each month. Thirty-six percent of Hispanics of
            any race received government assistance. About 18% of Asians or Pacific
            Islanders and 13% of whites received benefits each month.

          11. Nana Monster says

            Because of Michelle Obama and her crappy school lunch program there are more and more kids going hungry. This is an observation from my 14 yr old grandson….I see a lot more of my friends gaining weight as the lunches are so bad they aren’t eating them and there is so little food even when they do. Portions are cut way back so when they get home they have to eat just to make up for what they don’t have at lunch and then they go all out as they are so hungry.

          12. AKLady2015 says

            BS.
            Same lunch program put forth in the past.
            In fact it is the same food I grew up on.

            My grandchildren were not allowed to eat at school —
            because the food served was unhealthy.

            If you want your kid at Taco Bell or Burger King eery day, pick then up and take them there, or pack their lunch. Don’t kill off an entire generation early with heart and kidney disease. Don’t set them up to die at the end of a race, like a kid in Alaska did recently.

          13. Nana Monster says

            AK…I don’t know what state you live in but my best friend used to write recipes that were adopted statewide here in NY as being the BEST for kids for nutrition.

            I graduated in 1966.You state that the current lunch programs are the same as the past. We never threw our food away in school. There was always enough to eat and it was very good. It was also reasonably healthy, not perfect, but healthy. The food is NOT going to cause anyone to die prematurely. We start dying from the moment we are born because that is the cycle of life. I would worry more about what we are putting into the air and water and ground but NOT to the point of saying the sky is falling like the Left is doing. It is all about MONEY. Nothing more!!!

          18. AKLady2015 says

            When you and I went to school, there wasn’t a hamburger joint on every corner. Breakfast cereal was not all sugar. Every school had its own kitchen. Frozen foods were new to the market. Everything did not contain double salt and double sugar … a soda pop was a treat …

        You are wrong. I lived in So Cal for a LONG time and would get wicked headaches… when it was hot and dry… tried water with salt – presto chango – dehydrated, needed not just water but SALT. Works great in northeast during muggy hot weather too. And as I said, nails, hair, teeth all benefit from a healthy dose of SEA salt. That NaCl “pure” stuff doesn’t cut it.

          28. AKLady2015 says

            Actually, it was the Russians who ended the Cold War.
            They ran America to the brink of bankruptcy.

            Remember all those missiles they supposedly had?
            Inspections documented that they were empty tubes, some were even made of cardboard, others of wood.

  17. John Topper says

    In part I agree, The Government shouldn’t be telling us what to eat and how much. But then again, in part I agree. 2 Liter sodas have more sugar than one should consume in a week. On a regular basis, leading to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, vascular disease, eye disease. Too much sodium intake guarantees hypertension, vascular disease, heart disease, stroke and kidney failure. Bottom line Folks is M O N E Y. Limit the sugar and salt, limit the diseases they cause. Limit the cost of treatment, operations and needless pain and suffering.

    1. cutterguy says

      but let them do all the weed they can consume. much better for us all. then lets move on up with coke, meth, extasy, etc.

    2. AKLady2015 says

      Exactly.
      People would not yell if the government ordered rat poison out of food.
      Well, what they don’t understand is the sugar and salt are rat poisons’

    The COMMUNISTS are so hell bent on controlling every aspect of our lives that they will stop at nothing. They have trampled all of our rights and freedoms to satisfy their own IDEOLOGY. Salt is a mineral that all people and every animal needs to survive. You cannot live without salt. Salt is as essential to life just as much as water is essential to life. But The COMMUNISTS are so SELF RIGHTIOUS that they think they can convince people that salt is bad for them they have to PROTECT US FROM SALT. The sole purpose of badgering people for using salt is to control them. Because they know that everyone has to use salt to survive, but if they can convince you that you are breaking some law by using salt, then they can control you. That is the ENTIRE OBJECTIVE OF THEIR BULLYING. They do not care about anyone’s health, If they cared about your health they would not be chastising you for using salt.

  20. Deborah G says

    here’s what I have to say: PHUCK them! I am so sick of NY telling us what to eat, what to drink, who we MUST accept be it against our religious tenets or not,who we HAVE to pay for like Illegals in our schools we are FORCED to pay more property taxes. In fact ALL lib Democrats can go POUND SALT

  21. Retired Marine says

    Fine, the dumb shit want’s restaurants to post salt warnings, simply do this: Post a menu with “All meals contain salt”. Bloomerberg stay the hell out of peoples lives.

  22. randy jackson says

    Control control control, it’s all the mindless democRATS can think of. Stop already you bunch of stupid, lack of common sense moron’s. Between crap like this and Ovomit’s bathroom mandates, it’s no wonder we’ve become the laughingstock of the world. Next will follow mindless goons enforcing this ridiculous crap. All at taxpayer expense. How absolutely foolish. Sad to see our society focus on this kind of minutia while real issues like federal debt, government overreach, Veteran Affairs, Benghazi, Hillary’s emails, etc etc speed recklessly into oblivion.

    1. kotoc says

      All they’re doing is requiring restaurants to post on the menus that one or more of their choices has quite a bit of salt added… they’re not controlling how much we use, or telling us NOT to eat it. Actually, they may end up shooting themselves in the foot if they continue their efforts to control public food or drink consumption. For example, banning the sale of 2 liter bottles of soda… who said we can’t buy two 1-liter bottles just as easily?

      1. randy jackson says

        good morning, thanks for the clarification. It’s just that the implementation of these “aids to society” require taxpayer expense to implement and ensure compliance. That comes at taxpayer expense. Secondly, it’s another burden for employers, thus causing more cost which is usually passed on to the customers. Like many other advisories, in time they are taken for granted and ignored, yet remain an expense to engage. Prefer common sense, which seems to be so lacking these days. Thanks kotoc.

  23. John Williams says

    If New Yorker’s vote these people in, it is their own fault and they deserve what they get.

  24. Mynickelsworth says

    They tend to force things that are not important and ignore things that are causing big problems. Of Course the FDA is guilty of that also. I use lots of salt for one reason, to get the iodine. Iodized salt contains 0.4 micro grams of iodine per 1/4 teaspoon. A teaspoon would give you 1.6 micro grams of iodine. The FDA’s RDA is a mere 150 micrograms. People in other countries consume some 15 to 30 GRAMS with no health problems. 30 grams is 200 times the RDA. The Thyroid gland regulates much of the body functions especially heart rate. We have chlorine in our water and some also have fluorine in it also. Both are the same chemical family as iodine, so drink a little water and your iodine receptors in the thyroid are filled with chlorine and fluorine and all that iodine in the salt goes to some place else in the body. Your Dr. does ONE test for your thyroid. Doctors tell me that it takes a total of 18 tests to find our what the thyroid is Really doing.
    The FDA and stupidity such as NYC is killing americans slowly. They use medicinal drugs to do it much faster.

    deblasio is on the same level as pelosi,reid, cuomo and all the rest of the obozo butt lickers. Anything the govt can do to take away every bit of our freedom they are in favor of.

    It could be said that if the citizens of a city elect a corrupt jerk like de Blasio, they get what they deserve. However, political corruption and fascism can’t be blamed on the voting public. The blame falls on the jerks themselves…de Blasio, both a jerk and a (not so funny) joke.

  35. Carol says

    This mayor has major mental and common sense problems…….it is no one else’s fault he is in an interracial marriage and has a child from the marriage……don’t throw that in our faces…….it is no one else’s problem that he spoke against the police, blamed them for turning their backs when “HE” spoke at a fallen officers funeral, never came to their defense or apologized for his degrading remarks, BUT then expects them to guard him and the streets when a “terrorist alert” is upgraded, it is no ones else’s fault that he wants to DICTATE to people what to eat and how much, after all, the added expense is not coming out of his pocket, the businesses are being hit once again, as he has a housekeeper and cook at his call He has NO CLUE that we have freedoms and that millions have given their lives for us to retain them. He is the worst possible thing that happened to NYC. What a bunch of stupid, ignorant voters. He, Sharpton, Jackson and the city officials of Ferguson started this crap and now have blood on their hands from thru out the country. Then BLM adds to it. Why can’t the democratic voters understand that these democrats they vote in are the ones holding them down from jobs by allowing ILLEGALS in and padding their pockets with more money and freebies then any American. The democrats are lying and ignoring the legal American people just so they can hang on to POWER> Power of everyone….taking away freedoms and common sense. All democrats should have to take a LIE DETECTOR TEST before they are allowed to open their mouths. And why is the Supreme Court involved in a food issue? Is that what they are to be used for? This is laughable! NYC should be so ashamed and embarrassed that this idiot is running their city and is more concerned about food issues than about police and citizens life’s. They should be demanding his resignation so all the people of NYC can release the choke hold this mayor has on them!

  37. Dave Campbell says

    Sorry, I just can’t get all worked up over this. I don’t have a problem with labeling what’s in food…as long as it doesn’t get out of hand, which it easily could. Now if they were going to start telling resteraunts and food sellers that they couldn’t offer “high” salt items on thier menus, that would be a whole different ball of wax.

  38. jjmcl431 says

    pretty soon the “progressives” will have passed laws that will tell us when,how much and how often we can take a leak or dump. isn’t liberal government just wonderful?

    Another example of the government control that has been building for the last 25 years especially the last 7 . NY must be full of liberals to keep electing these democrats to office in their state !!! No wonder it is becoming so weird !!!

  42. robertleo says

    It’s up to us of course to watch our salt intake but in a restaurant I never consider to wonder how much salt is in the ordered meal. Like the idea of the little salt shaker on the menu. Hope it passes at the discretion of the restaurant owners. Enough government already!

    Anyone else see the irony here? The NYC mayor obviously does not believe the people in his city have the ability to think for themselves YET these are the SAME people the rest of the world is trusting to make financial decisions to the tune of MILLIONS AND BILLIONS with THEIR dollars??!! The mayor is saying these people are too stupid to know when their food is too salty, but no worries because they’re really NOT too stupid to be trusted with YOUR money! Ooookaaay…

    1. AKLady2015 says

      The irony here is that too many people have no idea how much salt is contained in processed food.
      The sarrow here is that too many people do not know what quantity pises a health hazzard.

    New York society need’s to be told how much soda they can drink & now how much salt they can have.

America’s programmed robot’s, the perfect communist society.

  59. kassa1 says

    Like for you to believe they are progressives but they are really communist elitist that’s what the definition of progressive is. Yes they are control freaks to the bone but the rules don’t apply to them only the 99%. What’s that make a blog no big zipper sounds like you did from the healthcare and from the taxes they put on us and exempt THEIRSELF from. Becoming a step to get their money to keep the ones on the dole so they got to get it somewhere and finding these restaurants is one good example just like Bill Clinton and the cigarettes. You think they care about your health and you you are your mind as they want to women eight 5 1/2 billion people from the planet. That’s in the media at least once a week now about to delete believe there’s too many people on the planet so they will illuminate 5 1/2 billion Think they care about you and always care about you too usually throw you in the trash. When they disarm you go marching into the gas chambers us like you did could use back in the 40s make no mistake they have no heart and the mantra is the end justifies the means

  60. Patriot47 says

    Salt is necessary for life. Excess of ANYTHING is not good. Liberal genius is the reason every box of nails has “DO NOT EAT” printed on it.

  61. jdelcjr says

    This article seems to me like a lot of ado. There’s no comparison between informing people so they can make their own decision, or making the decision for them. I jumped ship from the democratic party when NJ Governor Jim Florio passed his “runny egg law”, and I never went back. Now thats a “nanny law”. Informing people that an item on a menu is high sodium is not the same. Thats just allowing people to make an educated choice. It must have been a slow news day. Incidentally, Florio repealed the “runny egg law” and lost his bid for re-election.

  62. Edward B. Levy says

    cAPTAIN, YOUR GOING TO NEED A BIGGER BOAT!

  63. Edward B. Levy says

    Yes a bigger oat! Oh, I mean you will need a bigger menu. you will have to put icons on for: peanuts, peanut oil, sugar, basil, taragon, AND ON AND ON. aLSO, SALT, & PEPPER SHAKERS ALONG WITH SUGAR, BOWLS MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE TABLE, SO PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE TEMPTED TO USE THEM

  64. 3ronald1 says

    People on restricted sodium diets, might appreciate this knowledge. However being a bully and FINING restaurants isn’t the answer.
    I have a friend on a sodium-restricted diet, and so when she dines out, she either looks up the menu and nutrition information on the web before leaving home, or asks for the nutrition list most restaurants will provide if asked.
    Your dietary needs are personal, but a helpful icon (or better yet, listing sodium content on the menu) could assist people in making a good decision, versus not enjoying a meal out at a nice restaurant. My niece was born with a heart condition and had many surgeries. At one time, she was placed on a 500-mg/day sodium restriction, and the family didn’t dine out very often, and when they did, she couldn’t eat what she liked because of sodium content in the way our food is prepared. However, they found a local restaurant that allowed them to bring a hamburger patty cooked at home and they warmed it up and put it on a bun so she could enjoy dining out “like regular people” and they prepared french fries for her without adding salt to them. The family still didn’t go out much, but it was a relief to watch her enjoy a meal out with the family without worry or being embarrassed by being “different”. In a civilized society, common sense rules much better than mandated laws/fines regarding what we eat in a restaurant. They LIKE customers and so will accommodate them whenever they can if you ask.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      In America, most prepared food contains far too much added salt.

      1. 3ronald1 says

        So very true!

  65. imjmz says

    Every freaking state in the union are nanny states some how and that is a shame. “Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign.”

  66. George says

    The entire point of this regulation is that the NWO doesn’t want to own unhealthy slaves or people that are capable of exercising free will.
    Another possible explanation could be that, because of the global monetary situation, salt will become the next currency and the government wants to hoard it.

    1. AKLady2015 says

      Actually, it is people like me saying we do not want to feed, clothe, house you and provide expensive medical care because you are too stupid to control your diet.

      1. Jim says

        Don’t you realize that there are enough people to

          Hate is a personal choice.
          It is usually supported by ignroance and bigotry.

          1. Jim says

            I’ve been called worse things by better people

          2. AKLady2015 says

            No one called you anything.

          3. Jim says

            I never said that you did. The implications are there with your reply of “hate is a personal choice” and “supported by ignroance and bigotry”. By the way it spelled i-g-n-o-r-a-n-c-e and not i-g-n-r-o-a-n-c-e. How’s that education working out for you?

      Then explain the above if you are able. I suspect that at least some of these chicks were fed Organically. Eating is a dangerous habit and none of these illnesses were the result of evil commercial food companies. Why don’t you and Putin go to the Crimea next week and murder a few more Ukrainians? Put your sword to use helping your Mother Land.

      For the rest of you, here is a photo of where AKLady2015 is employed, it is the Russian Internet Research Agency a troll factory that pays clueless and English challenged Russians to lie like a pack of dogs for a measly bowl of watered down Bosch ever other day. .

    Since I am forbidden to buy a 2 liter soda, I’ll just get **2** 20 ounce bottles. It’s a better deal anyway since the smaller bottles keep the “fizz” better AND I get almost 7 more ounces of soda for less money when I find a 2 for 1 deal in the grocery.
    Thank you Mayor. You have made my life easier.

    This IS Tyranny, Dictatorship, Socialism / Communism and the Progressives love it.

  74. Camille Gilliam says

    This is great because you can add more salt if you can eat it, but there are alot of sick people that can’t have much salt, and then they can’t even fine anything that they can eat. You can’t get it out of the food , but you can always add more if you want it. it is almost impossible going to the grocery, because the stores won’t mess with it, same with the co.s. No ads, no demos and they distributors hide the products on the bottom shelf, and don’t even give the employees a sample so they can sell it. Frito Lay has low sodium Fritos and if I want them I have to buy them by the case.

  75. Robert Cruder says

    This is all political name-calling unless you are or know a person that conserves sodium. They don’t excrete it but instead dilute it with water and develop hypertension. Being evolved to not need much salt, they also don’t tolerate it well. Cutting salt intake extends their lives (assuming all you pro-lifers care).

    Shouldn’t we all have the FREEDOM to add or not add salt at the table rather than having it FORCED on us SECRETLY.

    Next will you complain about those evil regulators keeping you from putting peanuts in food without labeling it. Those allergic folks who simply stop breathing must just be whiners.
