I agree with Bloomberg, but he's still a tyrant ...

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg surely deserves plenty of criticism for meddling in other state's politics, as he did here in Illinois.  If you missed that, he worked to ensure a gun control representative gets in office ... but when it comes to his fascination with so-called "soft drinks," he is right that there should be regulation.  

Below is a chart to display the evolution.

Progression of soda sizes

The amount of soda that some people chose to consume is alarming, there's no question.  But it comes down to personal choice AND with personal choice comes consequence.  

It's not rocket science that soda is a worthless, nutrition-less, substance.  It really isn't good for you AT ALL! 

Even though Bloomberg is right, that there should be regulation, it shouldn't be the state's role to tell the individual not to do something.  

The money that's spent on enforcement officers to enforce these restrictions and other meaningless "fluff laws" could be used to provide for other essential "state" services.

Quit being a tyrant, Bloomberg, and lead by example.  

Want to encourage healthy living? Talk about it, display it, don't force compliance with your "suggestions." Have regular lectures on your own philanthropic time.  Use the city's time to govern.
