You should choose if you love big cans

Dear Editor:

New Yorkers face a 9 percent unemployment rate, a looming multi-billion dollar municipal budget shortfall, and critical issues dealing with education, housing, transportation, public safety and the environment. Don't city Council members Leroy Comrie, James Sanders, Jr., and Julissa Ferreras have more important issues to deal with than going after the Arizona Ice Tea firm's "I Love Big Cans" campaign promoting their 23 ounce beverages?

Even if this was meant to be a play on words, it would be no different from standard street corner or bar conversations where someone refers to a woman with "too much junk in the trunk."

In the real world – that is outside the City Council - no one really cares about these phony issues.

How disappointing to see that progressive liberals like Comrie, Sanders, and Ferreras are throwing their lot in with the “Moral Majority” social police who attempt to use government regulations and the threat of boycotts to impose their own moral values on others.

For those who don't like Arizona Ice Tea, please feel free to purchase a competitor's product. You are welcome to pay more for a far less satisfying ice tea. This is the basic nature of free enterprise and how life works in a free society.

Companies used advertising and marketing to promote their products. Consumers are free to make their own individual decisions. They can choose to select which product they desire to patronize.
