sarah jessica parker is right!

of course in lots of supermarkets she could save 5 cents by bringing her own reusable bag instead of carrying one item per plastic bag.
pathetique
or save money in gas by not driving to the store just to get a one-liter of generic, store-brand soda.

HOW MY GONNA FEED MY KIDS IF MOUTNTAIN DEW IS FIVE MORE CENTS A GALLAN?
HankFinch
You know how much money you'd save having one less shitty kid in your family?

I don't like paying taxes on my beer (and prohibition 'taxes' on my drugs), but I know I don't NEED these things. I won't die.

Hey, you will end up saving a lot more than pennies if you don't get your damn kids hooked on sodas. They'll prolly be more active, less fatted, and 23% less douchey.
pathetique
yus. you can feed a family more effectively with soda!

i grumble about my cigs but then i remember that they are bad for me.

i refuse to believe they actually released that ad without adding a HONK HONK after her little spiel.
pathetique
maybe she can take the soda money out of her oriental rug, chandelier and uncomfortable looking tiny deck furniture budget.
Killer Joe
SHE'S GOT ENOUGH MONEY TO LEAVE HER CAR OPEN SO THAT SOMEONE CAN COME STEAL IT! But yeah, fuck the fatties.

Some stars, too.

Schools wouldn't cost so damn much if they didn't have to support athletics programs. And you didn't have so damn many fucking kids.

You indignant cunt.

Taxes that disproportionately affect low-income people suck.

The general elitist attitude of "fuck those poor people for giving their fat crotchfruit sody-pop" also sucks.

That is all.
spikestoyiu
Shut up.

Why not say "Fuck you for blah blah blah?" I don't know if you've heard, but they have this shit called water that's even cheaper than Hi-C and doesn't make your kids into toothless fatsos.

SolRo
Anti-tax commercials funded by big corporations but funneled through an ad agency known for blatant lies and propaganda also suck.

spikestoyiu
Hi-C is for richers, man; low-income people can only drink Dr. Thunder! They splurge on Dr. Pepper on birthdays and Christmas only. Oh, and low-income people are stupid, so they don't know any better!

I was raised on welfare and I wasn't allowed to eat a potato chip until I was six years old. And I don't think I had a soda until I was probably twelve or thirteen.

But for real, what kind of chucklehead still uses the word "elitest" in an attempted serious discussion past the age of fourteen?

frau_eva
Elitist? I've taught children who've had soda in their sippy cups growing up and now have over half their teeth missing or replaced because all they eat is crap and no one makes them brush their teeth. I'm all for class warfare against the rich, but goddamn, these ridiculous stereotypes are sadly more prevalent than you think. Soda is goddamn liquid candy, and its about time it was treated as such--not an absolute necessity for any family budget.

tmavomodry
water? that shit don't taste like corn syrup and caramel coloring!

Twitch
So are taxes against smokes and booze and gambling and porno and shit taxes against low-income people?

The Man should tax things that are non-essential, non-healthy, and designed solely for profit.

Your body needs water, so drink that shit.

pastorofmuppets
I don't like vice taxes either, but the libertarian schadenfreude is worth it.

pathetique
your assumption that everyone's talking about poor people when we talk about fatty soda drinking kids is classist!

Soda is incredibly subsidized, but unlike meat, grain or milk, producers are selling it for hundreds of times above cost, not below.

I'd rather get rid of the subsidies than tax it, but damned if this commercials point isn't stupid.

pastorofmuppets
It's simple economics. You give the lobbyists government jobs. Then they subsidize their industries and hike duties on higher-quality imported products that might compete with theirs. Then, once the government realizes that its left hand is shoveling out money to industries under the guise of "creating jobs," it uses its right hand to tax the lower class for buying the stuff. Eventually the wealth trickles down like soda from the lips of a toothless child.

pastorofmuppets
Oh, and the corporations are allowed to make propaganda, which is protected speech, and a bunch of misguided people think they're patriots for believing in it. After enough time, the invisible hand of the market corrects a pesky inefficiency that was preventing the corporations from directly participating in elections. The system works!

OH MY GOD I NEED THOSE PENNIES!!!!
