"Big Bruddah is upon us..."‏ 'Obama Da Dog'

The irony of a soda pop tax is there are many things that make us obese,
and to single out soda pop is discriminatory.

There is talk of a proposed bill in the state legislature to tax soda pop and other sugary drinks to the tune one cent per ounce. This is  allegedly to help fight obesity? Give me a break. An insider told me this tax will also apply to diet soft drinks, a total hypocrisy since diet soda has no sugar.

The proposed  law is discriminatory. my question is,  what about chocolate covered mac nuts, shaved iced topped off with ice-cream,  Hawaii's favorite plate lunch da Locomoco, cakes, pies , doughnuts, cookies and just plain over indulgence? Why just single out one caloric item?

Moderation is the answer. Why not just tax people going over a 2,000 a day calorie limit?  Just implant a calorie intake counter in every citizen. If this sounds ridiculous so is a soda pop tax, fight for  your right of choice. 

Big brother is upon us, or in Hawaii  let's just  say, Big Bruddah.
