Mayor Bloomberg’s Food Nazis Eye Banning Large Tubs of Movie-Theater Popcorn
It’s not the popcorn that is the problem, stupid. It’s all that simulated butter and salt.
However, be that as it may, it is not for the government to control what you or I can eat.
Not that I would, but if I want to destroy my popcorn with large globs of simulated butter oil and a bucket of sodium chloride, I should be free to do just that!
Those of you who fatuously voted for smoking bans; shame on you for laying the groundwork for all these food Nazis:
City health weasels go ‘pop’

Why stop at soda?
Mayor Bloomberg’s proposed ban on sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces could also include massive buckets of buttery movie-theater popcorn, as far as members of his Board of Health are concerned.
“The popcorn isn’t a whole lot better than the soda,” said Bruce Vladeck, a senior adviser at Nexera Consulting and one of the mayor’s appointees to the 11-member board.
The board yesterday agreed to put Bloomberg’s big-soda ban up for a public hearing July 24, but also talked about the merits of limiting other high-calorie treats.
A large tub of movie-theater popcorn has up to 1,650 calories.
Only if you load it up with all that fake butter oil. Otherwise, you can eat almost all the popcorn you can stomach and not gain any weight.
In fact, many diet plans actually suggest you eat air-popped popcorn to allay those nasty cravings for snack foods. However, since when have Progressive Commies let actual facts get in the way of their power grabs?
The board will vote on the soda rules in September.
