Manufacturers and business owners are fighting back against Nanny Bloomberg’s plan to ban the sale of large sugary drinks. Following the usual progressive thinking, Bloomberg believes HE knows better than you what you should and shouldn’t be able to drink, and he’s ready to use the power of government to impose his views on you. From USA Today:
Members of the coalition include large companies and organizations, such as Coca-Cola and the National Association of Theatre Owners, as well as many mom-and-pop food sellers. Funding comes from the American Beverage Association, which also spearheaded the campaign.
The group is aggressively marketing its message through means such as:
•Social media. Recent tweets tweaked Bloomberg for helping to promote a July 4 hot-dog-eating contest where participants wolfed down dozens of frankfurters; the mayor presided over the contestant weigh-in. Facebook posts include anti-ban messages and conversation-starting questions such as “What do you call it, pop or soda?”
