Misleading title.

Better article: http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/04/28...nia/index.html

Quote:
Santa Clara County supervisors voted 3-2 to ban the plastic goodies as promotions in meals with more than 485 calories.

"This ordinance breaks the link between unhealthy food and prizes," Yeager said. "Under this ordinance, restaurants are still permitted to give out toys.
On one hand, I don't like government getting involved with private business, but that technically does make sense. IMHO, it's similar to the tobacco industry regulations that make it harder for them to persuade kids into unhealthy habits.

hahahahahahahahahaha

i always enjoy a good dose of retard in the morning, since no food is unhealthy. IE: wine was considered bad up to a decade or so ago, when we discovered it helps greatly in small regular doses to prevent heart problems...


on that note, kyle's mom is a bitch, no one really cares for the toy, its all about the food.

I think the gummit should go farther and limit the amount of sodium in all processed foods. I make my own sausage with about 70 grams of sodium, the average on the market is 550 grams for the same weight!

This is absolutely ridiculous. This just shows how out of control and overreaching our goverment has become. We have 113 murders as of yesterday in just the city of Chicago alone, we have people in southern California about to lose everything because of some stupid species called the delta smelt, we have illegal border crossings bringing drugs, murderers, and kidnappers across our borders every day, and the best we can do is make it illegal to sell a friggin happy meal. What in the world has America become? I'll tell you what its becoming, its becoming a punch line for the rest of the worlds jokes. Its time for real americans to take a stand against this ridiculous nonsense, concentrate on real issues, and get this country back on track.

Mc Donalds offers a healthy selection to their happy meals besides a greasy burger.

First it was drinking, smoking, then hate crimes, then surveillance/traffic cameras, now what we eat, then guns, then cars, then any hazardous activities, Orwelle's 1984 is already in place. Just look how they found and arrested the suspect in the attempted bombing in Time Square. Big Brother is watching and is going to control your every move!
