The government royalty in San Francisco has declared war on individual rights once again by banning McDonald’s Happy Meals unless they meet the approval of the City Food Police. San Francisco joins New York in telling its citizens what they may eat and what they can’t. According to Yahoo! News, “San Francisco has become the first major U.S. city to pass a law that cracks down on the popular practice of giving away free toys with unhealthy restaurant meals for children. San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors passed the law on Tuesday on a veto-proof 8-to-3 vote. It takes effect on December 1. ( After all – they know what’s good for you and your children when you don’t!)
The law, like an ordinance passed earlier this year in nearby Santa Clara County, would require that restaurant kids’ meals meet certain nutritional standards before they could be sold with toys.”
My suggestion to those with brain cells left – pack your bags and move out of this Stalinist state as quickly as you can. When some overstuffed bureaucrats can decide what you can feed your children, the time is long past to either get rid of them or move to a different state. Which state? Any state that remembers we’re governed by the Constitution of the United States which prohibits the actions of these lunatic government space wasters.
Hey San Francisco Jerks! Shouldn’t I make the decision on what I am going to purchase from my local McDonalds?
While San Francisco’s budget deficit could go north of $750,000,000 in 2011, the buffoons running the city have time to regulate Happy Meals. But wait – isn’t obesity among a few children of color much more important than a nearly $1 billion dollar budget deficit that will cost the taxpayers much more in interest payments? Of course it is! No shame on the baboons running city finances into the ground. Let’s instead bash McDonald’s – a business that actually produces jobs, pays taxes, and provides a legitimate self funding service. McDonald’s produces. The very pathetic city of San Francisco and all its minions exist to tax, spend, and regulate – like big fat out of touch royalty.
Parents really only exist in some ethereal state anyway. It’s the government’s job to bring up children today. So stand back and let the nannies in City Hall dictate to you, restaurant owners, and anyone else they can strong-arm what you can and cannot eat in San Francisco.
But wait! While Happy Meals are bad for your children, homosexuality is good for them as evidenced by the wide range of gay friendly legislation in the city. Young children can be brought up by 2 homosexual men – that’s good and proper. But you cannot purchase Happy Meals in San Francisco unless they meet the strict approval of the city’s food police. Now that’s smart and progressive!
Budget deficits must be good for you too! San Francisco joins the state in generating huge budget deficits – California’s is approaching, are you ready for this number – $19 freakin billion dollars! So, while Rome burns the city flunkies are regulating Happy Meals.
