I’m not talking socialist ideals like universal health care or even cap and trade. No, I’m talking about San Francisco’s insane city government that has been a few fries short of a Happy Meal for years now, and has decided to ban toys from Happy Meals.
Whatever happened to the good old days when Americans were responsible for themselves? What makes me righteously indignant is when the government intrudes in our lives. Most everyone knows that eating at McDonalds on a regular basis is bad for you, but should it be up to the government to tell us what we can and cannot eat?
Hang personal responsibility, because parents can’t be responsible for the food choices for own their children. Heck when my boys were little they were more interested in the toy to begin with then the food, and usually left half their meal uneaten on the table.
Happy Meals are not the root of all-evil. Families are not breaking up, careers are not being ruined, I don’t know too many families in therapy over Happy Meals, and how many people are injured or killed because someone had one too many Big Macs and got behind the wheel?
This is infringement on the right of a business to run the company the way it sees fit. It is censorship, and it shouldn’t be allowed to happen in America! If you don’t want your children to eat at McDonalds, then don’t go there!! However, if a parent wants to take there child to McDonalds as an occasional treat, it is their right.
Thanks a lot Burger Meister Meister Burger for banning our toys!!
