    This in a city that promotes a parade where the queer boys lead each other around by their genitals with cock rings and chains and self described "queer married" couples bring their adopted kids to witness the spectacle.

    But a Buzz Lightyear toy with a cheeseburger is going to bring about the end of civilization.

    *smh*

    San Francisco Council Votes to Ban "Happy Meal"

    Source: Democracy Now

    And San Francisco is poised to become the first city to ban the high-calorie children’s "Happy Meal" served at the McDonald’s fast-food chain. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has voted to bar restaurants from giving toys with meals containing excessive fat and sugar. Under the rule, restaurants would also have to serve fruits and vegetables alongside any meals with toys. The measure awaits a full vote next week. It would go into effect as early as December 2011.

    6. How does this "ban the Happy meal"?

    I'm not in SF, but last time I got my daughter a happy meal, she had a choice of french fries or apple slices. In SF, they just won't give you the choice (or they'll raise the price and give you both). The problem with unhealthy food isn't that you need to bribe people to eat it. Far too many people PREFER it. You're bribing them to eat YOUR unhealthy food instead of someone else's.

    Yes, but I'm sure they feel like they've done something good.
    Bingo. Children don't want to eat hamburgers and french fries to get a toy. They just want to eat hamburgers and french fries. In SF, the city council just wants to make sure that hamburger-eating children, particularly the few black hamburger-eating children, don't also get a toy.

    And for some of those kids, THAT'S THE ONLY TOYS THEY GET! No, I am not kidding. So this measure is kinda classist too.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    Maybe they should switch to giving away sex toys with Happy Meals in San Francisco. Then, any attempt to ban them would be a hate crime against people whose sexual preference is machinery.
