    Since you live in Colorado, I can understand why you'd be so upset that NYC will have an informational campaign about hearing loss from earbuds.

    Think we should welcome the opinions of others who have not lived here?

    To a degree. To what degree depends on what the particular issue is.

    If NYC has an informational campaign on the dangers of hearing loss from earbuds, why in the world would anyone from somewhere else care?

    It's about control not earbuds or soda. You don't have to live in New York to have an opinion. Eccl 10:2, Jn 10:10

    Is an informational campaign about the danger of hearing loss from earbuds really communist?

    Are you worried the communists will take your earbuds? I think it'll be more along the lines of some posters on the subway (by "subway" I mean the "commie people mover").

    I agree with you on this. There's nothing wrong with an informational campaign. It might actually reduce hearing loss (health costs) at some point in the future. What I dislike is dictators. Just give me the information and let me decide what I want to do with it.

    As for styrofoam, a biodegradable cup can't be that hard to make, can it?
    Eph 2:8 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God's gift --
    Eph 2:9 not from works, so that no one can boast.
    Eph 2:10 For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them. [HCSB]
