While all of the media buzz about San Francisco’s assault on fast food restaurants has been focused on toys found in kids’ meals, the Board of Supervisors last week decided to take a shot at regulating “breakfast items” marketed to adults, too.

According to a Sept. 27 amendment to the city’s proposed Happy Meal toy ban ordinance, “a new category of items — breakfast items — are required to contain 0.5 cups of fruit. A Meal must now also contain whole grains where bread is part of the offering.”

The amendment defines “Whole grains” as “Bread, such as a hamburger bun or other sandwhich, that is part of a Meal must be made with at least 50 percent whole wheat.”

Adult customers who prefer plain white bread to whole wheat will have no choice when it comes to ordering their beloved McDonald’s Egg McMuffins and Burger King Croissan’wichs. More importantly, adult customers do not purchase fast food breakfast meals because of toy incentives, leaving one to wonder why the crackdown on breakfast meal breads is even necessary to be included in the city’s proposed Happy Meal toy ban ordinance.

  1. I sent the following to one Eric Mar, please enjoy reading it, because I enjoyed writing it…………I think the city of SF should check into your psychological health. Its bad enough that you ban toys from kid’s meals. Now you are telling adults what they can and cannot have for breakfast. I say stop being a douchebag, God didn’t put you on the earth to make such silly laws. Why don’t you use your education for something good, like going to areas of the country and helping people who barely have enough of anything to survive. I think perhaps you should have to live on the streets and eat out of garbage dumpsters to gain some humility. You are not a diety stop trying to be one.

  2. This only goes to show that the term “liberal” no longer applies to the Democratic left. They ARE 100% NAZI! They believe in a COMPLETELY TOTALITARIAN system. One where, only their demented ideas are considered.

  4. I don’t know why people of San Fran put with all this “adult supervision.” I wouldn’t touch that city with a million mile pole.

    BTW, fanstanstic site, just found it, you’ve been bookmarked!

  5. Thanks for the heads up, I was planning a trip to San Fran. However, the land of the sheep leaves me wondering what kind of idiot live there. To have some fascist Government tell them what to do, and how to do it, amazing. Do these people from San Fransisco have no thoughts of their own, no back bone??

  6. Just one more example of obama’s orchestrated determination to remove all freedom of choice from our lives on the obama road to Hell.

  7. SF wants to control all of the vending machines in the city; SF goes after pet store owners telling them what animals can and cannot be sold; SF goes after McDonald’s Happy Meal; SF now going after adult breakfast meals. When will the residents of SF stand up and go after this Regime? Is this type of Government control truly what they want? I feel for everyone in that city!

  8. Why don’t we just shutdown all Restaurants in the Sanctuary City, get more food stamps to stimulate the economy and just eat at home without Government oversight?

    Where do these loons come from? They do not represent the beliefs of main stream Americans. Hopefully when the next 9.8 quake hits the Westboro Baptist Church will be there to protest at the resulting MASS funerals.

  9. You know, if any of you bullet-headed jerks stopped circle jerking for one moment, and read the motherf*****g statute, you’d realize it doesn’t say what our Dear Leader here says it does.

    You’re uncritically accepting anything, no matter how stupid or false it is, just to try to get one over on the other side. You’re pathetic, degenerate trash. There’s no excuse for this kind of behavior in a democratic society. You rage against what kind of tyranny you seem to think Obama and the democrats represent, but you’re all just stuck in the echochamber drinking this man’s Kook Aid.

    F*****g pathetic. Grow up and learn to use your brains. He even linked you to the f*****g ordanance, and you still didn’t even bother to read it, and just gobbled down his bile.

  10. I’m not a resident of San Fran but I am a resident of Washington D.C., our nations’s capitol. Yet, it seems like we are going down the same nanny state that you all in San Fran are going. Over here, we are charged $.05 per bag, for the environment. They are starting to bring in legislation to stop adults from smoking anywhere in the city. From what I’ve read on this blog, my city is doomed on the same path. Keep up the hard work and probaly people from this city will realize the control these people have and we’ll do something about it.
