As Goes Nancy Pelosi, So Goes McDonald’s Toys: Gone

With San Francisco’s House Rep. Nancy Pelosi losing her speaker gig now that Republicans are claiming the chamber, her district is seeing another loss: McDonald’s toys. Threatening a ban last month, the city’s Board of Supervisors yesterday passed a law barring toys from being distributed with meals that don’t meet certain health specs. Great. Now what the hell are we going to throw at awful McDonald’s employees?

      This is regrettable, because it does NOT ban the food and will do nothing to improve kids’ diets. All it does is take away their toys.

      Here I was thinking it should be up to the parent to decide what their kids ate. God, I’m glad I don’t live in SF, its liberal paradise gone to hell.

      Any laws that severely restrict personal choice of an individual or a guardian for no particular reason are an overreach and abuse of government power.

      Parents can still buy their kids shitburgers, McDonalds just can’t ply children with toys. It’s a restriction on childrens advertising, not personal choice.

      Living in SF must be unbearable.

      It isn’t just SF, but all of CA to a lesser extent… we’re the gov’t and we’re here to protect you from yourself.

      When Gavin Newsom and the government-worshipping goosesteppers who infest Queerty oppose this, they have gone too far.
