Thank you for talking about what the real issue is, the profit-driven motivation of the pharmaceutical industry and the corruption of the FDA and medical profession. I'm a skeptic and was only more convinced when a reputable, main-stream child health center wanted to give our 1 year old 7 vaccinations in one visit. That's insanity and I wouldn't let it happen. Our child nevertheless is fully immunized, at our schedule, if only to avoid conflicts with her schooling. But we're holding firm on the HepB, a disease that affects overwhelmingly those who live risky lifestyles.
Underlying all the hooting about parents rights, and the defamatory accusations of child abuse and parental irresponsibility is a well-deserved distrust of the well-documented FDA/Pharma industry love affair. Let's talk about that for once.

smith, please explain and provide examples of how the SPLC is a "hate group". Otherwise your words are nothing but slander.

"...the rights of adjacent folks...".
Another term for that is "community", but that's not part of the developers' vocabulary. Optimization is.
I have no stake in this, just an outside observer, but it's interesting to note the stark contrast between the levels of respect for community input here versus the West Glenville adventure park effort.

This is a Gazette editorial? It's written like a rant from the child of one of our tea-bagger friends. No serious newspaper would allow this to be published as is. Whatever point it's trying to make (and the unintended outcome appears to throw support behind the much maligned and beleaguered beverage industry), is lost in what looks like at best a high-school (non-Regents) education.
"With everything that's wrong with this state, forcing the beverage industry to put warning labels on products overstating the obvious is the last thing we need our lawmakers wasting their time on."
Drama anyone?
And as to the point: while it's true government, the parent we love to hate, does not seem able to elegantly address social issues, obesity and diabetes kill just as much as tobacco. Except we glorify giving sugar to our kids.
