No, you can have your own opinion, but you can’t have your own facts. He left the Democratic party to become a Republican in the early 2000’s and became an Independent later when he couldn’t stand being in the same party as G.W. Bush… Now that last part is just my opinion, the rest is fact. See, I know the difference; try working on that.I’ve been reading a little about him, and it turns out, he’s more progressive than I realized. I still don’t agree with him on quite a few things and this drink cup issue is one of them. People should be discouraged from consuming so much sugar, put this isn’t going to help. By the way, it is a “local issue” and the Federal Government should stay out of it except to be sure they (the Feds) are not doing anything counterproductive.
