Mayor Newsom Sucks

I don’t understand why anyone would think this is a worthwhile idea? Let’s get some things straight:

1. Kids (hell, people) drink sodas. Lots and lots of sodas.

2. Sodas are full of sugar and calories and that causes a lot of health problems. I’d guess that most folks are ignorant of this fact.

3. So, to solve this problem we completely ignore the fact that we could educate folks here, instead focusing on taxing local business who sell sodas.

WTF? Seriously? So you’re going to blow a HUGE wad of taxpayer money (probably the money you collect from local businesses who sell sodas) to fight the soda companies and everyone else who opposes this sort of high-handed, big-brother bullshit.

Wait, and you’re running for governor of California as well? Oh dear…
