Newsom Proposes Soft Drink Ban

Ok, maybe not exactly a ban, but that's pretty much where this is headed if someone doesn't slap some sense into Newsom, or the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.

Democratic gubernatorial hopeful, Gavin Newsom, is proposing a fee be levied on grocery stores that sell soft drinks. Rather than a tax on individual cans of soda, he's going for the fee on stores because he doesn't need to put it on the ballot as he would if he levied a tax.

From the looks of the thumbs up and down in the comments to the article, looks like his idea isn't faring very well amongst readers. Hopefully, that's a sign of how well he'll do when the primary election comes around. We don't need a shitbag like Newsom for mayor of a city, much less governor of this state.

Newsom isn't going to be governor. Jerry Brown is beating him in the polls even in SF.

Let's hope not. That's good news from the polls, but it's still early.

Another deranged progressive who thinks that it is his job to rule every single detail of people's lives. He needs to move to Cuba.

Newsom is offensive. I was in SF last year and listened to a bunch of college women express their disgust of him.

Go Jerry Brown!

Fred, I'm not arguing but I am curious. What are your main reasons for considering Newsom a bad character?

Because he's an Authoritarian that thinks he should be involved in everyone's lives. Somebody needs to off the guy, and that's from someone that used to like his soft spoken ways.

"Newsom Proposes Soft Drink Ban"
We'll probably have to create another agency just to make sure he isn't stashing any sodas away in his car.
