It's Time to Grow Up
I'm gonna say this as plain as I can. High Fructose Corn Syrup almost did me in.
There's no reason whatsoever, except for PROFITS, as to why our sodas and soft drinks are sweetened by HFCS.
As to those of you drinking the "diet" versions of those sodas and soft drinks; I hope you all reconsider your choice, before you find out that only the first three letters apply to your ingestion of a known carcinogen and a neurotoxin.
To Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and to Thomas A. Farley - if you gentlemen are at all concerned with obesity, you will outlaw HFCS in our sodas and our soft drinks, or you are just talking shit.
Let's be serious about this epidemic, everyone. Don't concern yourselves with profit over people. I can sit around drinking gallons of sugar-sweetened iced tea, and never have the reaction I had from 3 litres of HFCS-sweetened crap.
It must be removed from our diets.
Let's sweeten the pot a little bit - if any of you reading this want to make your voices heard, see the following information and choose your medium of response:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will be in New York City tomorrow, in the hopes of a historic inclusion into the UN. Let's see what develops. I think that the protestors at the Warwick Hotel should just go home - what else are hotels for, anyway?
President Obama has put it out there: millionaires have to pony up their fair share.
Wall Street has been occupied since Saturday, September 17th...but it hasn't been a hot news item. I see, however, that the J train line between Fulton and Broad Street has been closed, and no real reason has been offered as to exactly why this has been done.
Come on, guys: are you going to deal with the reality that you idiots cannot run roughshod over our lives anymore?
Do you realize that were not going to put up with you stealing money from us in the form of "bailouts", while you run Wall Street like a casino, only We The People are paying.
Do you realize that We The People won't put up with losses being "socialized", while profits are "privatized"?
It's time for you to GROW UP.
