      • only the folks that voted for him deserve what they’re getting;others don’t. just as i don’t deserve the obama administration, i got stuck with it because of all the imbeciles that voted for him. the innocent suffer along with the guilty.

        • That’s the beauty of living in America, at least for now. One can always move to a different city or in this case, a different state.

  1. i think my head is going to explode. first off, where were all the merchants and their lawyers when this was first being proposed? where are all the enviromentalists decrying the increase of plastic bottles into our landfills? and where oh where are the consumers who are going to get walloped here,as well as losing yet another freedom,freedom of choice? ne yorkers should be up in arms. oops,forgot;that’s gone too.
