Shiz Soda

Marketing, business, and politics are all elements of the current food system. At OpenSecrets.org, the Center for Responsive Politics indicates that $30 million dollars was spent on lobbying for food policies with the most money from Coca-Cola Co, PepsiCo Inc, and McDonald’s Corp. It’s indicated that the American Beverage Association went from $700,000 in 2008 to almost $19 million in 2009, the year of the “soda tax” discussions. Just the mention of a congressional action unleashed a surge of money. The government allows and is influenced by these practices. Soda is boring. Get over it.

Sit next to me, I’ll wet your lips with spicy zestilicious soda water
