Hazardous To Your Health

This week California State Senator Bill Monning proposed a new bill that would require warning labels to be added to all sweetened soft drinks.

The bill would read: "STATE OF CALIFORNIA SAFETY WARNING: Drinking beverages with added sugar(s) contributes to obesity, diabetes, and tooth decay." 

Because of course the general public is blissfully unaware that soft drinks aren't health food and the government knows what's best for each and every one of us. By all means let's treat soft drinks the same as we do cigarettes and alcohol.

Jesus wept.

Of all the futuristic sci-fi films that have come out in the past 30 years, THIS is the last one I ever thought would come true.
Lenina Huxley: Ah, smoking is not good for you, and it's been deemed that anything not good for you is bad; hence, illegal. Alcohol, caffeine, contact sports, meat... 
John Spartan: Are you sh*tting me? 
Moral Statute Machine: (BUZZ) John Spartan, you are fined one credit for a violation of the Verbal Morality Statute. 
John Spartan: What the hell is that?
Moral Statute Machine: (BUZZ) John Spartan, you are fined one credit for a violation of the Verbal Morality Statute. 
Lenina Huxley: Bad language, chocolate, gasoline, uneducational toys and anything spicy. Abortion is also illegal, but then again so is pregnancy if you don't have a license.
It's enough to make me run out and commit a murder/death/kill.
