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.
