It's Time to Allow SF Citizens to Strap on Revolvers

The chief executive of McDonald’s, Jim Skinner, has launched a counter-attack against those who seek to ban Happy Meals.

In the People's Republic of San Francisco, the board of supervisors approved a measure that forbids restaurants from offering toys with meals unless the food complied with limits on calories, sodium, sugar and fat, essentially banning Happy Meals.

In an interview with the FT, Skinner described the food police, as, well, “food police” and accused them of undermining parents in making decisions for their families.

“We’ll continue to sell Happy Meals,” said Skinner, in the face of a ban that does not become effective until December 2011. The new rule “really takes personal choice away from families who are more than capable of making their own decisions”.

Bottom line: From local levels to federal levels, the belief by government officials that they know what is best for us, and our children, and by gun point, because that's what it ultimately comes down to, are willing to force us to abide by their views is completely outrageous conduct void of basic decency and appreciation of liberty and what it means.

I'd like to see how they would react if someone pulled a gun on them and tried to stop them from eating their tofu. Based on their mad logic, one would be fully justified in stopping them, especially since it has been shown in one study that high consumption of tofu has been linked with dementia in the elderly. In fact, if anyone refused to stop eating tofu, by the logic of the SF food police, you could should them right there and then.

Why don't they just legalize the open carry of revolvers in SF, so everyone can march through the fog, climb over the abundant SF homeless, and halt of all types of bad eating habits, when observed --provided there is at least one research study by a community college professor, or professor at a higher ranked educational institution, that points to harm of a given food.
