Man, what is this world coming to? I just read that McDonald’s Hamburgers has been banned from selling Happy Meals in San Francisco, California. Once again, the elected Nim-Com-Poops have rallied together to “protect us from ourselves.” Never underestimate the stupidity of people in large groups.
They banned the meals because of their fear that it “might entice children to eat food that was loaded with fats, salt, sugar.” From here on out, they can only offer a toy with the meal, if the meal is low-fat, low-salt, low-sugar.
I hate to throw a wet towel on all this boys, but the mechanism to keep all this in check was already in place … It is called “Parenting.”
But there is good news, across the bay, in Oakland (The murder capital of California) the “Happy To Be Alive Meal” is still being sold. The toy this week as I understand it, is a zip gun.
Now on the other side of the country, the Nanny Patrol finds it necessary to cancel school dances.
Hide the adults! Teens are dirty dancing
It’s interesting to note that the dance wasn’t canceled out of concern for the kids — the usual defense — but because teachers refused to subject themselves to another night of watching teenagers dry hump to music. It really makes you wonder whose innocence they’re trying to protect — the kids’ or their own. Posted on November 13, 2010 by Bill on Cracker Boy or you can read the full story on Salon here.
George Bush released a new book last week, after two years of self imposed exile in the Lone Star State, he is appearing here and there to talk about his book “Decision Points.” Which I understand is a major yawner available for about $25 nationwide. Kind of ironic, the book comes out AFTER THE ELECTIONS guess it wouldn’t look too cool, throwing all of your Republican buddies under the bus, a week or two BEFORE the vote is counted.
Anyway, I am going to take a pass, Bush has lied to me before.
Speaking of buses? (He did it again! He did it again!) Last spring, , an unemployed hotel concierge in St Paul Minn bought an old junkyard bus for $2,000. He fixed it up, and now drives around the Twin Cities giving free rides to people at bus stops. He even passes out free coffee and encourages sing-a-longs. The good news is we need more people like Freddy Jackson, willing to step up to the plate and help out.
The bad news is some jerk will most likely sue him for everything that he has if he has an accident. That is unless the City Fathers hear of the competition to city run bus lines, and just shut him down completely.
It is not easy being a Freddy Jackson in today’s America.
Another Jackson is in the news again. Michael Jackson who was named the world’s top-earning dead celebrity this year by Forbes magazine, with $275 million in music and movie revenue. He is beating out Lady Gaga, Madonna, and Jay Z all of them combined. This week he released a new single (now that is a trick, releasing a single from the grave) and they swear it is HIS voice on the CD.
In the Mile High City (Denver Colorado) they are intent in reducing the size of government. Now that is refreshing. I understand that they will soon vote on an initiative to establishing a seven member “Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission” to handle “potential encounters or interrelations with extraterrestrial intelligent beings or their vehicles.”
Which is great, I would hate to think of government wasting money on frivolous endeavors.
