Nanny of the Month: Happy Meals Banned as Part of "Food Justice" Agenda
Last month the food police sued a North Carolina man for growing fresh vegetables, and early this month the Baltimore police issued their first trans-fat citation against a Chinese restaurant. Now we learn that San Francisco's food cops have committed a different kind of atrocity by making the City by the Bay the first major metropolis to ban toys in happy meals.
This month's top busybody is the pol who sponsored the ordinance to make happy meals sad, the one who hopes his "food justice" agenda goes nationwide.
Since when do governments have the right to tell us what our children can't eat? Isn't it up to parents not bureaucrats to determine what food is suitable for their kids? I think this is going way to far. What's types of regulations on consumer tastes are coming next? Where does it all end?
