Vote Delayed on San Fran Happy Meal Ban – Still Time to Fight!

Help keep the smile on these kids faces! Tell S.F. Supervisors to back-off and butt-out of decisions best made by parents.

Help keep the smile on these kids faces! Tell S.F. Supervisors to back-off and butt-out of decisions best made by parents.

According to the Los Angeles Times, nanny state bureaucrats in San Francisco postponed today’s vote on the Happy Meal toy ban until after the state and national elections have been decided. Outgoing Mayor Gavin Newsom threatened to veto the ban if it were held today, so Supervisor Eric Mar decided to wait until no one would stand in his way.

While Mar uses the next two weeks to figure out how he’ll convince the single swing-vote, Supervisor Bevan Dufty, to jump onboard his pirate ship, be sure to keep the heat on all of the San Francisco Supervisors to let them know they’re infiltrating a territory that parents control — not big government.

Click names below to find contact information for each Supervisor:

  • District 1 Eric Mar
  • District 2 Michela Alioto-Pier
  • District 3 David Chiu*
  • District 4 Carmen Chu
  • District 5 Ross Mirkarimi
  • District 6 Chris Daly
  • District 7 Sean Elsbernd
  • District 8 Bevan Dufty
  • District 9 David Campos
  • District 10 Sophie Maxwell
  • District 11 John Avalos

    Media Silent as Pastors Urged to Pimp Obamacare

    "Embrace Obamacare and you will be saved!"

    "Embrace Obamacare and you will be saved!"

    President Obama recently asked church pastors to promote the glories of socialized medicine to their flocks and the State-Run Media didn’t make a peep about this mingling of church and state.

    James Towey, President George W. Bush’s director of faith-based initiatives, writes in his Sept. 25 Wall Street Journal opinion piece:

    Imagine what would have happened had I proposed that he use that office to urge thousands of religious leaders to become “validators” of the Iraq War?

    I can tell you two things that would have happened immediately. First, President Bush would have fired me—and rightly so—for trying to politicize his faith-based office. Second, the American media would have chased me into the foxhole Saddam Hussein had vacated.

    Yet on Tuesday President Obama and his director of faith-based initiatives convened exactly such a meeting to try to control political damage from the unpopular health-care law. “Get out there and spread the word,” Politico.com reported the president as saying on a conference call with leaders of faith-based and community groups. “I think all of you can be really important validators and trusted resources for friends and neighbors, to help explain what’s now available to them.”

    Since then, there’s been nary a peep from the press.

    According to the White House website, the faith-based office exists “to more effectively serve Americans in need.” I guess that now means Americans in need of Democratic talking points on health care. Do we really want taxpayer-funded bureaucrats mobilizing ministers to go out to all the neighborhoods and spread the good news of universal coverage?

    Surely, President Obama’s familiar with Exodus 20:10 that states, “but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates.” Aside from using churches to promote a political message, it doesn’t look like he or his willing pastors have a problem with conducting government business on the Lord’s day, either.

    One America Rally: Same Old Rhetoric, but Plenty of Fresh Kool-Aid

    HotAir.com’s Ed Morrissey reviews the video footage taken by Reason TV‘s Nick Gillespie who asked the Obama faithful how that ‘hope’ and ‘change’ is working out for them. “There was certainly a lot of slogans, but in the coverage I’ve seen here and elsewhere, not much substance,” Morrissey observed:

    For instance, ALF-CIO chief Richard Trumka says that the auto bailout was a great idea, but refused to answer a similar question about AIG. Julian Bond says he hasn’t seen enough government yet. Bond does say, however, that the US is a better place since 1968, while Dick Gregory claims it’s actually gotten worse. There seems to be a new reluctance to play the race card on the Left, but it doesn’t take Nick long to get Ed Schultz to at least give him a peek at it. Nick also stumps Mitch Kapor on how government can create jobs, which seems rather humorous since the proclaimed purpose of this rally was to highlight job creation rather than partisan politics.

    See for yourself:

    Obesity’s the New Swine Flu

    Big government has never cured any of society's perceived or real ills.

    Big government has never cured any of society's perceived or real ills.

    “Who above maybe 15 years of age doesn’t know that being overweight is bad for you,” asks the Financial Post’s William Watson. “But that’s the point: it’s bad for you. It’s not actually bad for anyone else.”

    Watson points out that the common tactic of big government bureaucrats these days is to treat obesity like it’s a contagious disease. Remember how the world reacted when the Swine Flu ‘epidemic’ was raging in 2009-2010? People were lining-up for injections of a controversial vaccine that was prepared on-the-fly, but big government said, “Trust us. We know what’s best for you.”

    “If you become fat, the fat cells don’t actually fly off and attach to me,” Watson says. “If you become fat, you raise your chances, not my chances, of heart attack, stroke, depression and low productivity. It’s your problem, you fix it.”

    But the fat police aren’t going to let people fix their own problems anymore, Watson warns. They have proven they’re incapable of making rational decisions by consistently consuming irrational food and beverage choices.

    “If people are irrational, can we really trust governments to enforce rationality on their behalf,” Watson asks. “The rational government is even more of a stretch than the rational individual.”

    First Lady Wants Nurses to Sell Obamacare to Patients

    "Let me tell you how Obamacare's gonna make all of your pain go away. Got a minute? Good!"

    "Let me tell you how Obamacare's gonna make all of your pain go away. Got a minute? Good!"

    If you don’t like it when Jehovah’s Witnesses knock on the door and try to sell you their ‘religion,’ we’re sure wouldn’t appreciate it if a nurse tried to sell you on Obamacare while incapacitated in a hospital bed. Unfortunately, that’s exactly the tactic the First Lady Michelle Obama promoted to 1,000 nurses this week:

    “You all play such a critical role in helping patients understand what’s going on with their health care, giving them the information they need not just to get better but to stay healthy,” Obama said. “And right now, there’s some very important new information that we really need help to pass along.”

    More than 1,000 nurses joined the first lady on the call, in which she briefly outlined some of the law’s protections and benefits: Insurance companies can no longer drop coverage for children or their parents because they are sick, she said, and college students and young adults can still get coverage under their parents’ insurance.

    “All this means that individuals and families have more control over their health care,” the first lady said. “But here’s the important point: These reforms aren’t abstract theories that just make for good talking points. These are real changes that will benefit Americans all across the country.”

    Idaho Wants Smokers and Drinkers to Pay for Budgetary Indiscretions

    Potato head bureaucrats want to loot smokers and drinkers.

    Potato head bureaucrats want to loot smokers and drinkers.

    Idaho bureaucrats are struggling to provide continued funding for health and welfare, education and the state’s prison system, so they’re hoping smokers and drinkers will help pay the bills.

    “Our reserves are gone,” said Senate Finance Committee Chairman Dean Cameron (R-Rupert). “We can’t expect more federal stimulus.”

    Sensing desperation, anti-smoking advocates are telling lawmakers they can pull-in a quick $46 million in revenue with a $1 per pack cigarette sin tax increase. House Minority Leader and wordsmith John Rusche (D-Lewiston) managed to pass-off the penalty tax targeting smokers as “another smoking prevention tool [for kids].”

    Rep. Lenore Hardy Barrett (R-Challis) scolded greedy big government lawmakers for budgetary indiscretions in the past and wanting smokers and drinkers to pay for their mistakes today.

    “Boil it down: stop spending and lower taxes,” Barrett advises fellow legislators.  She defended smokers and drinkers targeted by sin taxes, stating, “that’s their choice and they’re not breaking the law.”

    Should Public Officials Tweet in Session?

    To Tweet or not to Tweet: That is the question.

    To Tweet or not to Tweet: That is the question.

    A battle is raging among two Cook County, Ill., commissioners over the right to ‘Tweet’ to constituents while in session. Cook County Commissioner and avid Tweeter Tony Peraica (R-16th) says he just wants to ensure “transparency in government,” but Democrats are trying to “muzzle” him.

    Opposing Peraica’s efforts to keep citizens informed with live ‘color commentary’ from County Board meetings is Commissioner Joseph Mario Moreno (D-7th). He claims the Twitter ban would help fellow commissioners “avoid inaccurate information going out during proceedings, particularly in executive session.”

    Apparently, Moreno’s concern is that Peraica is sending out “inaccurate information” to citizens that tends to be critical of Democrats. Here’s the straw that broke the donkey’s back, reports the Chicago Daily Herald:

    It first came up last November, when Riverside Republican Commissioner Tony Peraica put out a Twitter tweet chiding Chicago Democratic Commissioner Deborah Sims for her decision to flip-flop and vote against an override of President Todd Stroger’s sales-tax increase. Peraica posted: “Com Debbie Sims still does not get it. She blames the press for her vote to support Stroger sales tax. Time to vote her out.”

    Peraica has been tweeting from his boardroom seat for years now. He says the effort is an attempt to silence critics.

    “They’re afraid that the taxpayers may find out exactly what is going on at the County Board,” Peraica told Chicago’s CBS News affiliate, “and what goes on there is not pretty, and it costs the taxpayers a lot of money.”

    Moreno is expected introduce the anti-Tweeting ordinance to the Democrat-dominated commission today.
