I disagree with the law, but hopefully this fight gives a lot of publicity to the fact that Americans eat like pigs, and makes some people think twice before ordering that BigGulp.

Sure.... and maybe they will begin to plan for the future, only buy what they need, be kind to their fellow man and do a good deed every day....

If anything, it will empower the fat slobs and encourage them to buy the 256oz Big Gulp....
