San Fransisco to ban Happy Meal toys. Yes....parents are too stupid to take care of their own kids. Why don't they just ban kids-that would solve the problem too.
Restaurants would also need to provide fruits and vegetables with meals that come with free toys. The city said the measure was an effort to combat childhood obesity.Oooop, look!~your socialism is showing. Food justice? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot indeed.
"We're part of a movement that is moving forward an agenda of food justice," Supervisor Eric Mar told the Los Angeles Times.

Bobby Jindal and Sens. Mary Landrieu and David Vitter. "The secretary should be free to recommend whatever he thinks is correct, but he should not be free to use our names to justify his political decisions."Yeah. That makes it all cool and stuff.
