    San Francisco Bans the Happy Meal

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    That's so dumb. No, I don't feed my kid Happy Meals every day....but once a month you should see the look on his face from the experience. No matter...I don't live there and never will.

    I lived there for about 6 years and nothing surprises about that city. Alot of the people there are quick to spout their independence and willingness to fight the system, but they give their freedoms over quicker than any other group I know.
    No guns, no happy meals, why the hell would any one want to go there!!!!

    Thanks goodness Big Mac meals don't include toys!!
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    Blah, blah, blah....

    More California nonsense. If you are afraid your kids are getting fat on Happy Meals, DO NOT BUY THEM! Oh, and don't buy them for yourself either. Think about it. If you are feeding your kid McD's what are you eating right there beside them?

    That stuff is killing us one meal at a time. Should it be legislated away? Of course not. Personal responsibility is what is missing in this equation. When they start loosing market share to healthier options, they will change their menu. Until then, be the adult and TEACH your kid what is health and what isn't.

    You got it right, that's for sure.

    I'm actually angry at myself for continuing to be amazed at how many people willfully let "legislation" take the place of common sense. Where did personal responsibility go? The toys aren't the reason kids are getting an unhealthy meal; someone is buying it for them for pete's sake! I agree that fast food chains should offer some more healthy choices, but they should be offering those choices because people demand it by going somewhere else until they do, not because of some legislation.

    All they're doing is creating a black market for Happy Meals. Soon we'll have Happy Meal Wars in the streets as gangs and dealers carve out their territories. There won't be any regulations or quality controls and users will die from "bad" Happies that have been mixed with baking soda or drain cleaner.

    I can't believe none of those liberal clowns saw this coming. For shame!
