Nuts and Flakes Indeed...

Fresh off the BLNN news ticker is this laugher out of the Left Coast...

Los Angeles City Council declares all future Mondays to be 'meatless'
The Los Angeles City Council has declared every Monday to be a so-called 'meatless Monday,' and is urging all residents to participate in the weekly day of vegetarianism.

NBC Los Angeles reports that with the vote Los Angeles has become the largest city to embrace the Meatless Monday campaign, a nonprofit with the goal of cutting down on meat consumption for health and environmental reasons.
They're claiming this is only symbolic, but what's the over/under on the length of time between "symbolic gesture" and "mandatory in all government offices and schools"? Couple weeks? I mean, they certainly can't be outdone by Freakazoid Bloomberg and his "You're better off starving in the dark than accepting food with unknown nutritional content"...

It's almost like there's a competition on to see which big city can look the most bug nuts effing crazy. Boston has a problem with drive-by shootings? Solution? Ban scooters! New Yorkers getting fat? Ban large sodas! There's more in the article about how one of the councilors wants to ban fast food restaurants from the LA area - because, you know, lawful commerce needs to be banned because they can't force people to eat broccoli...

What scares me most about this is that I can see why they're all about gun control. You see, they honestly believe that inanimate objects influence human behavior. Whether it's a firearm causing a church-goer to hold up a convenience store or a fast food restaurant dragging people in and shoveling burgers down their gullet, liberals believe that people honestly have no choice. The logical extension of this line of thinking, of course, is complete and utter government control over every facet of our lives.

But it's okay - cigarettes are bad for you, so it's okay for the government to go after them, right?

That is all.

Hmm..

Governments have killed more humans than any other object.

Maybe it's time to start banning them.

Can't do that, Robb.

Governments are filled with PEOPLE!

But...but... they sez they has a 'mandate' so they can do what they wants... sigh...

I predict this is just the TIP of the iceburg!

Another reason I'm glad I'm from Nebraska...fewer morons...although we have that Ernie Chambers guy...

While we have neither beaches nor mountains (though Colorado is just a quick hop away) we just passed an Amendment to protect the right to hunt, fish, and harvest game in the State of Nebraska. Meatless Mondays? We just ensured that our meat intake will stay steady. Oh, AND we're helping the environment! :)

Bring on the Soylent Green. It is made from plankton from the sea, or something.

So I guess I'll have to put on hold my plans for a cross country scooter ride for 2a awareness where I'll consume nothing but big gulps and beef jerky

It must be great to be on the City Council in Los Angeles where everything is running so smoothly that the only thing they have to work on is things like meatless Mondays.

I wonder if they had accedentally made it Friday, how many heads would explode when they realized many churches already do this. They would probably hang those who started the idea as spies...
