Posted on 11/10/2012 7:12:11 AM PST by TigerClaws
Los Angeles is hoping to persuade people to become vegetarian at least one day per week. Under a resolution unanimously approved by the city council this week, all future Mondays in the City of Angels have been declared "Meatless Mondays."
Follow @NBCNewsUS It's part of an international campaign to cut down on meat consumption for health and environmental reasons.

No doubt this is a precursor to the kinds of healthy living rewards good Americans will come to expect under ObamaCare.
I already abstain from meat one day each week, but I don’t do so on Caesar’s orders.
Today, voluntary. Tomorrow, mandatory.
Which is just as well. What with democrats controlling California and the white house, no one will be able to afford meat on mondays. Much less on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, etc, etc
If they had proposed meatless FRIDAYS the ACLU would be in there so fast putting a stop to it because of the religious connotations.
It’s time conservatives started calling Vegetarianism and Environmentalism religions and challenging government actions in the name of those causes.
Dear Leaders - Would you please tell us what we SHOULD eat? We’ve obviously been doing it wrong for so long, and without YOU guiding US low-life underlings, we would still be on the wrong track. Maybe you could just make us menus-for-life, or perhaps on Monday mornings little things would come out from Those Who Reign to tell us what to eat that day.
Otherwise how are we going to LIVE? Might be better if you just made everything illegal that is BAD for us (in your minds, of course) and everything free that is good for us. The bad rich people could pay for it.
STEAK MONDAY for me.
I didn’t get to the top of the food chain to eat grass.
My meat consumption is down now due to financial restraints. And we’re just beginning the next leg of the four years of Hell.
I have abstained on my own account every day for 21 years. I don’t preach to others about their decision, but it has worked well for me and for my health.
They never stop, do they? They just grow more and more tentacles. This is a small reason why the countries should split. Their thinking is alien.
Grass is not food...grass is what food eats. :)
Don’t be so hard on California politicians. After all, they have solved all their other problems and have absolutely nothing to do. They know their fine citizens don’t want to pay them all those big bucks for just sitting around looking pretty.
Hate crime against meat eaters by trying to stigmatize against them.
Step One on the road to Soylent Green.
I live in Maryland, and it’s rough here hoss. Living with liberal Democrats aint easy, but thank the powers that be I am not in California, where Las Angeles wants meatless Mondays and San Francisco is paying to mutilate the mentally ill with trans-gender operations for free..
Why not meatless Fridays?
Separation of Church and State: Where do these Environmentalists come off dictating their religion to the rest of us?
I think this is a great idea.
With fewer people in the market for dead cow, that means the prices will have to come down.
More Tri Tip for me. Grilled up medium rare, after marinating a day or two in my own secret sauce.
Beans and rice are going to be on the menu for sure, but not for vegan reasons.
And I’ll bet it’s not on a Monday, either!!
So are all the Golden Arches going to limit to chicken only on Monday? We live in Los Angeles and WILL GO OUT for STEAK dinner on Monday night’s!!!!
Not until they declare a “meat” day. To declare a “meatless” day without a corresponding “meat” day is discriminatory (to use a favorite lefty word!).
“I think this is a great idea.
With fewer people in the market for dead cow, that means the prices will have to come down.”
Until the farmer says, “Hay! (pun intended) I’m not making any money on these cows. It’s time to grow something else!”
Supply goes down, price goes waaay up.... (Time to trudge out in the snow after a deer)
Make certain the your children and grandchildren get meat on Mondays. It’s for the children, ya know....
UNDER Hitler there were MEATLESS Wednesday and Fridays!!!
And the first thing he did was ban Kosher slaughter.
As if Mondays weren’t already getting enough bad PR.
Under Obama I will probably just drink me meals on Mondays...perhaps the rest of the week as well.
Twenty-five plus years of meatless everyday here...under no one’s direction but my own heart.
And, yes, I occasionally miss bacon.
Vegetables are what food eats.
We already have this. It’s supposed to be on Fridays.
Well, they’ve already mastered brainless Monday through Sundays.
Some wit could have fun with this, by proposing a “Beat a PETA” event. Start by putting a dummy, labeled PETA, and dressed as a fool, in stocks, then encourage people to call it derisive names and beat it with whiffleball bats.
Maybe they were subliminally giving the illegal aliens a message that they should refrain from sex on Mondays. It would ultimately reduce the load on the maternity wards in all the LA hospitals and their welfare rolls.
12-0 Unanimous vote.
Looks like a good ol USSR. Thursdays were meatless days in a name of public health. No beef, pork or lamb were sold or served in restaurants. Still, it wasn’t all veggie because thursday was actually a “fish day” in Soviet Union.
I and my wife are with you Doug. We are both in our sixties and really can't "pass" all that meat we used to eat, (putting aside the teeth/chewing ability).
We eat meat 3-4 times a week and fish/veggies the other days. It really does help with the digestive system, not to mention the morning visit to the porcelain throne.
We also use a lot of probiotics during the day.
What’s wrong with Fridays?
Why should I eat the food of my food? I’d rather have Pork mondays.
Good thing most fine steak houses are already closed on Monday.
My best friend is out Elk hunting with her son. She is 79. They are packing in about 15 miles from base camp on horseback. Snowed there last night, I think. We got a dusting here.
