Having Solved All Other Problems, LA Bans Some Fast Food Places

Apparently, there’s no more crime in LA, no illegals, and no budget issues

New stand-alone fast food restaurants have been banned from setting up shop in South Los Angeles, due to rising health concerns by the city council.

How many fast food eateries does one area really need? The Los Angeles City Council thinks South Los Angeles and South East Los Angeles need new choices as these regions face an over-concentration of such restaurants.

“This is not an attempt to control people as to what they can put into their mouths. This is an attempt to diversify their food options,” said councilmember Jan Perry.

Perry’s new plan bans new so-called “stand alone” fast food restaurants opening within half a mile of existing restaurants.

Our old friend “diversity” combined with a smattering of Nannyism. You just know that “responsible food choices” has to have something to do with it. Good thing they’ve taken care of the South LA gangs going after jewelry stores, eh?

    So in order to promote “diversity,” you prevent restaurants that would add diversity from opening and operating.

    Uh….. sure.

  2. Why, no problem! Let them eat Chateaubriand. Or escargot.

  3. Soon we’ll have cannibalism in South LA, blamed on poor food choices.

    Don’t you have to catch it first?

    If you remember, one day a little snail came into a car dealership. After looking around, he decided upon a little red sports car. He only asked that the dealership paint a large letter “S” on each side of the car.

    Finally the day came when the snail was to take possession of the car. The salesman gave him a tour of the car, pointing out the large “S” on each side, and then gave the keys to the snail.

    The salesman and the worker who had painted the car stood together outside, wondering how the snail was going to even drive the car.

    As the snail pulled away, leaving a track of burning rubber, the salesman asked aloud, “how is that snail driving that car?”

    “I dunno,” the worker replied, but would you look at that ‘S’ car go!”
