Soda companies fight for free speech in San Francisco

The government in San Francisco will fight to allow people to burn the flag and shout obscenities.

But advertise a legal product? Never! The liberal fascism continues, except companies are fighting back.

From the Associated Press:
The American Beverage Association has sued the city of San Francisco, claiming new legislation requiring health warning labels on sugary beverages and prohibiting advertisements of them on city property violates the First Amendment.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports the association filed the lawsuit on Friday.
The lawsuit says the city "is trying to ensure that there is no free marketplace of ideas, but instead only a government-imposed, one-sided public 'dialogue' on the topic — in violation of the First Amendment."
The Board of Supervisors in June unanimously approved an ordinance in June that requires health warnings on ads for sugary drinks. The measure requires those warnings be placed along ads on billboards, buses, transit shelters, posters and stadiums.
The label would read: "WARNING: Drinking beverages with added sugar(s) contributes to obesity, diabetes and tooth decay."
You go, girl.

Thee warning should read: "WARNING: Politicians push junk science to control your life."

Here's an idea: Ban food stamp purchases of soda.


  1. I trust the ordinance apply to non-carbonated beverages also. Like Starbucks concoctions.

  2. Frisco KNOWS what's best for their peasants.
