Nanny Staters At It Again

It's for the children. It's always for the children. This time they are coming after Happy Meals and toys.

County officials in Silicon Valley trying to curb childhood obesity voted Tuesday to ban restaurants from giving away toys and other freebies that often come with high-calorie meals aimed at kids.

The ordinance is largely symbolic as it would only cover unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County, meaning only about a dozen fast-food outlets and several other family-owned restaurants would be affected.

Exit question: Which state is guilty of being fascist? Arizona who want to control the influx of illegal immigrants flooding their border or California who wants to control the diet of the population by banning Happy Meals?
