HEARING in the BIG APPLE about the BLOOMBERG SODA BAN! Time for respectful but FIERCE PROTEST!

If you are a resident of New York City, go today at 1 PM to state your protest to the proposed Bloomberg Agenda 21 style soda ban!

Here’s the details and I am sorry I do not have more time to help with this:

The proposal requires only the approval of the Board of Health — appointed by the mayor — to take effect. But opponents could still sue to block the ban, or they could convince legislators to step in and block the proposal.

A public hearing was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, and the board is scheduled to vote on the measure Sept. 13.

It looks like it’ll pas regardless but there is a mayor’s election in 2013!

Here’s the Board of Health’s website on this hearing.  I know, it’s fair and balanced!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
