    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – San Francisco has become the first major U.S. city to pass a law that cracks down on the popular practice of giving away free toys with unhealthy restaurant meals for children.

    Really? What about free market? What about happiness? WHAT ABOUT THE KIDS??

    And doesnt the law prohibit adults from excercising their choice and buying a happy meal with a toy for themselves if they want? Soon, it will be a soy burger with apples and no toy with a packet of milk.

    Free market has nothing to do with it. No different than requiring stores to only sell alcohol and tobacco to adults over 21 years of age... prohibiting the sale of violent videos to minors... etc. I don't like it. I think it's stupid. But, the twits who make the laws in krazifornia are not the sort of people who go to McD. This law will not affect them. It will only affect the people who do go to McD. And of course, since those folks obviously don't know what is good for them and their children, these twits take advantage of their elected position to do a little bit of left-wing social regulation. It's no different than the mentality that gave us "hate" crimes, etc. Best thing to do is let them go on until they destroy themselves. That's the best way to deal with a failed system. Let it fail.

    Maybe they could sell a Happy Meal with a hug from the cashier. They could call it. . .










    oh come on. You are already saying it in your head.

    Hehe California... More meaningful legislation is just beyond the reach of some municipalities.

    Whatever! This is the best move any Gov't body has ever made! People are killing there children with this crap! Kids always want the Happy Meal! It's like McDonalds is owned by the Chinese, trying to give our children little heart attacks, in my opinion this is way worse a threat than the whole lead in the paint crap!

    So you think the only reason that kids like hamburgers, nuggets and french fries is because they come with a toy? Come on, kids still love mcd's even without the toys. kids only get to be kids once, let them have a little fun.

    They should keep giving away toys and quit selling crap food. There should be a stupid tax on that stuff. Except for the mcnuggets. I love those tasty pressed meat morsels.

    Ironic isn't it that they pass out needles to junkies, but ban happy meals. :upeyes: That city needs a very large fire.
