Sound funny? Sound ridiculous?  As ridiculous as it sounds, and would not be taken seriously by anyone in their right mind, it’s very close to reality . . . in San Francisco that is.

The Board of Supervisors (still think that is an interesting title for a commissioner – maybe the political structure just wanted to convey the idea that we have to be “supervised” rather than actually working for the people) voted earlier this month that limited toy giveaways in meals high in calories, sodium and fat, and also required servings of fruits and vegetables with each meal.  That’s right, eight of the eleven “supervisors” have the audacity to tell you that they can parent and take care of your children better than you.  Politicians telling you what you can and cannot feed your child.  (SOURCE)


Imagine the wasted food.  The required vegetables and fruits with the meal would be mostly thrown in the trash.  When a kid goes to McDonald’s, fruits and vegetables are the last thing they want.  If a parent wants fruits and vegetables with their child’s meal, they won’t be going to McDonald’s or any similar fast food restaurants.

But that’s not the point.  The point is more and more control of people’s private lives, this time deciding for parents what to feed their children.  This is another example of government gone crazy and just another encroachment into our private lives.  There is always another agenda which is little by little increasing government intrusion into daily living.  Just wonder what’s next on the San Francisco’s “supervisors’ ” list?

The mayor of San Francisco, Gavin Newsom, did the right thing.  Mayor Newsom vetoed the ordinance on November 12th (SOURCE).  Mayor Newsom said in a statement, “Parents, not politicians, should decide what their children eat, especially when it comes to spending their own money.  Despite its good intentions, I cannot support this unwise and unprecedented governmental intrusion into parental responsibilities and private choices.” (SOURCE)

However, the SAN FRANCISCO POLITBURO overrode Mayor Newsom’s veto this past Tuesday, so McDonald’s has a little over a year to comply with this government-gone-crazy overstepping its purpose and becoming the surrogate parents of San Francisco’s children.  Totally absurd.  The citizens of San Francisco should start petitions to have a recall election for the “Happy Meal 8,” starting with the sponsor of the legislation, ERIC MAR.

I might send Mr. Mar a picture of me . . . eating a Big Mac and fries.




The 24 hour guard is still there . . .

Could it be they got a lesson on Constitutional government? That ONE person CANNOT overrule the majority?  It’s happened way too many times over the years and it’s time for the majority of Americans to stand up to special interest groups that use intimidation and bully tactics to promote their agenda.  As I saw one commenter say on the Christian Flag-King Facebook SITE, too many times the ACLU has said “boo!” and we all run and hide.

A look at the cases listed on the ACLU’s WEBSITE clearly shows they are not the least bit interested in freedom of speech, or freedom of anything for that matter, for everyone equally.  Just as in the case of King, NC, cases are carefully chosen to advance their agenda.  The ACLU likes challenging small towns because they know small towns do not have the finances to fight the ACLU army.  That’s why it’s vitally important to stand up and fight for your rights as guaranteed by the Constitution that leftist groups such as the ACLU are trying to take away.  There is strength in numbers, and there are far more of us than there are of them.
