Facebook “chat” this morning on McDonalds toys….
 
  • Original Post:
  • So this morning before school, my kids were watching TV while we got ready and there it was… A McDonald’s commercial announcing the newest toy (a bakugan). My boys are very into that Bakugan stuff and then it came… “moooommm, can we go to McDonald’s today?” I want that toy. I said, wait for it, wait for it. “NO”.
  • Friend #2  I can’t even remember the last time I took my kids to McDonalds.
  • Original Poster :Well, with all that hype about suing MD over kids’ obesity is just rediculous! We are fat because of the food we put in our mouths not because of the food people sell.
  • Friend #2 :Take responsibility for what you eat and do??? Too hard, easier to just blame others for “my” stupidity. Everyone demands choice and then blame others when they choose wrong.
  • Original Poster:  That’s right. The government will continue to dip into our freedoms because we can’t take responsibility for ourselves and the rest of us will have to fight to keep our civil liberties.
  • Jessi Bradshaw : you know, i don’t have a problem with the toy except that the cost of the meal to get the toy is not worth it. I get more food by not getting the toy…so my response is.. “are you eating the toy or the food?”. That usually gets them. Plus… those toy are so generic.
    Anyway….I will spare your page my rant on the “political” side of the issue, Merry Christmas! 🙂 😉
  • Friend #2:  Wow, when you think about it they have covered it all, from health insurance down to plastic free toys! I’m sorry, but I would rather hear about other issues like hmm, jobs, the war on terror, national debt, national security…plastic toys? Whats next? Are they going to dictate what toilet paper I ….
  • Jessi Bradshaw : ok, i promise not to go into a full on rant. Mary, you are absolutely right-they are coving the bases but there is more. my issue, in plain words is this, i agree with both of you and most of this population, that ppl should choose and are …directly responsible for what they CHOOSE to put in their mouths. If it makes one fat, then one has the responsibility to either stop or exercise.
    But more importantly than the obesity factor, and i think its where “original poster” mentions “civil liberties”…
    Lets look at it this way. the FED(local, state,whatever) GOVT feels they can go INTO a PRIVATE business to DICTATE what that biz can or cant do. Thereof, affecting the consumer choice. Again, a PRIVATE biz. (in this case, no toys, hooters is next on the too do list, if u havent heard)
    (slowly but surely) Recently, DHS decides that it is now time to enter into Walmart(private biz) and start preaching from the tv monitors on what we should or should not be on the “look out” for? Wait a minute, i am at a private biz, shopping for my PERSONAL needs but DHS can start preaching to me? Does this not infuriate people? When should we expect these govt messages at the movie theaters, restaurants, amusement parks?
    So if that isn’t creepy enough.Lets look at the hypocritical. I obesity is a national security issue. Then why is intoxication not one? Why is the FED govt NOT going into bars and nightclubs enforcing sobriety “laws” or anti-smoking laws? Why are they hell bent on legislating for the kids?
 

Now, why is this not JUST about McDonalds “toys”.

From the  San Bruno Patch:  “The NOW chapter filed a complaint (today) Thursday with the San Bruno Police Department accusing the Hooters restaurant here, along with several others in the state, of exposing minors to sexual entertainment and that the restaurant should be forced to comply with local adult entertainment regulations.”

For those who are geographically challenged… San Bruno, CA is minutes away from Market Street… the site of the famous San Fransico Pride Celebration Parade (aka: Gay Parade)

Minutes away!

So let’s think RATIONALLY about this.
1. Liberal organizations (yes, the current govt is a liberal organization)are hell bent on making sure those pesky toys contributing to a national security emergency be removed from “Happy Meals”! Enter Big Brother into private business establishment to dictate what is acceptable or not.

2. NWO files complaint stating that Hooters contributes to exposure of “sexual entertainment” to minors.

3. We are MINUTES FROM THE CASTRO, SITE OF THE FAMOUS GAY PARADE WHERE countless gay men and women parade in the BUFF in front of minors every year!!! (I lived in the Bay Area, believe me I’ve been sickened first hand).

“Funny story”, our first day in San Jose, clueless, we happened to turn on the tv precicely at the moment a 70 year old man flashed the camera with his wrinkled jewels. Yeah, we didn’t know the parade was being broadcast on network t.v. semi-uncensored…

Back to the story…. Look at the pics below…they are not doctored and they are some of the more tame ones.

Gay dudes who work out and don't eat at McDonald's because fries are too fatty.

Eyes Burn....Yeah, no exposure to overt sexuality at this parade. Idiot "parents"!

 

Yeah, no exposure to overt sexuality at this parade. Idiot "parents"!

 

At what point is the liberal agenda going to look at itself and it own OVERT HYPOCRICY? Never, so get used to it. 

It is time to start thinking big picture. No need to blame McDonalds for our fat butts. McDonald’s is only a small problem of our obesity “issue”.. or shall we forget that back in the 80’s it was the FDA that declared HYDROGENATED OILS supperior to palm based and animal based oils only to do an about face 20 years later? McDonalds complied and we got fatter fries.
So back to “enter big big brother”… They barge into McDonalds for a third time, tell them to remove toys….blah blah.
Enter NOW, ready to file complaints with Hooters while only minutes away June next year, the NOW wont be thinking about the welfare of minors and their over exposure to sexuality.

So what does this have to to with McDonalds toys?

1. Allow the targeting of ONE private restaurant (McDonald’s)… you allow the targeting of other private restaurants for other BOGUS reasons(Hooters).
 
2. Target private restaurants, you allow the targeting of OTHER PRIVATE establishments for BOGUS reasons. (Who’s Next? Coffee Shops, Movie Theaters?)
 
3. Once targeting any and all PRIVATE business becomes the norm…..the door is open and there is no such thing as “REAL PRIVATE BUSINESS”….. (what are we calling that now days? National Socialism?)
 
(For now the DHS and Walmart are “collaborating” in this “joint effort” ..but maybe eventually they will have more to say…maybe dictate the toilet paper isle.)
 
I hope you get the picture.
Now go wash your mind’s eye and stare at some Thomas Kinkade for a few minutes.
