I don't think the government should have any roll in what and how much a restaurant should serve or how much we eat or drink. We should have the freedom to get fat or get fit. Freedom.

I think limiting the amount of soda is going a little overboard. There are much more important things that they cold be regulating.

In New York and other places there has been talk about limiting the amount of soda you can buy in a Restaurant. What is your opinion of what role government should play in regulating the restaurant ability to serve over sized products?

I know this is a sticky subject that has been highly debated in the media. I am split on my opinion . I dont want to give up my right to chose on the basis of economics. We all want more for out money. However, on that basis alone I am saying that no matter what I will buy the better deal. Anyone that has eaten at a restaurant here in New Orleans knows the insane portion sizes. So sometimes I believe that the government should regulate what we as a country has shown we can not control. Our country is built on the right of freedom . However if the are going to regulate the size then also regulate the price of everything also.
