The idiot politicians in California can’t help themselves, they can’t let a day pass without proposing some sort of new law or ordinance to… protect the children! Which is another way of saying, “Let’s make sure the little rugrats have no choice but to eat the basically tasteless food we now serve them for school lunch, by banning any food truck from being within 1500 feet of a school while school is in session …” The authors of bill AB 1678 want to ban food trucks because they say it “diminishes participation in the school nutrition programs” and “increases students’ access to foods and beverages that are calorie rich, nutrient poor and contribute to negative health outcomes like being overweight and obesity.” Which is saying what, that the little tikes don’t actually want the c**p the California Nannies are trying to shove down their throats? Gee, what are these purveyors of the Nanny State going to do about the c-store across the street, or the fast food joint just around the corner, shut them down too during school hours? I’m beginning to think the citizens of California are just plain dopey for allowing this kind of insufferable political oversight of the foods kids and adults eat.
