SORT BY Relevancy
New York State's highest court has struck the final nail in the coffin of Nanny Bloomberg's dreaded double gulp soda ban. But it's not really a victory for personal liberty. The fact that such trivial personal rights must now be litigated all the way to the highest courts shows just how little credence our rights are afforded by the political system. And the decision wasn't unanimous, two judges on the saw nothing wrong with such nannyism, after all obesity is an epidemic. In other news, gold and silver are holding on to their gains, even though it's Friday. What a nice change.
Is there finally some sanity?? A judge has the guts and brains to stand in the way of Nanny Bloomberg's fascist super size soda ban.
And a Pew Survey finds fewer people trust the government. Is the tide turning?? Are enough people waking up to the fact that the government creates more problems than it ever solves??

Start spreading the News I'm leaving today.... New Yorkers who enjoy super-sized sodas can keep drinking them, for now. On Monday, a state judge invalidated New York City's large-soda ban, which was set to take effect tomorrow. Judge Milton Tingling, of the New York Supreme Court, called the measure "arbitrary and capricious," according to The New York Times. The measure would have prevented the sale of sodas and other sweetened beverages larger than 16 ounces. Mayor Michael Bloomberg saw the measure as an opportunity to make the city healthier, citing sugary drinks and large portion sizes as culprits in the obesity epidemic. The Bloomberg administration said it plans to appeal the sugary drinks decision as soon as possible. "We believe that ultimately, the courts will find it consistent with the law," Bloomberg said in a press conference Monday.

Military Sexual Harassment Victims Testify at Senate Hearing
Military personnel who were victims of sexual assault testified in a Senate hearing today that military justice repeatedly lets perpetrators of the hook. According to the Defense Department, there were more than 19,000 cases of sexual assault last year, but only 3,192 reported. Critics argue that the system dissuades victims from coming forward. We will talk to Paula Coughlin, Advocacy Board Member of Protect Our Defenders. Paula was the whistleblower of the Tailhook sexual assault scandal. She also started the petition that got Congress to hold the Lackland hearing in January.
Court Knocks Down Mayor Bloomberg’s Soda Ban
Michael Bloomberg’s ban on large sugary drinks, did not go into effect this week as planned. The New York State Supreme Court invalidated the ban calling it “arbitrary and capricious."
