Here's another example of the government thinking they know better than you. Of course global warming has something to do with this.

By the way, while I'm not vegetarian, I have immense respect for people who choose to be due to love of animals. The LA Council making this public resolution, however, is ridiculous.

Just another example of a goverment body with too much time on their hands, or one that refuses to address the important issues they are faced with.

Yeah, I’m sure all the Mexican restaurants are going to go vegan. No more tacos lengua, etc. Fat effing chance.

It’s the government party telling you because they are your god how you should and will live.

Yes!!!!! I’m actually hoping the denizens of LA become accustomed to picking their own LA River Polk Salad and eating it a few days a week. That’s what my family had to do back during the depression.

How about all the burger places close down every Monday and reduce worker hours accordingly with a message to write the city council?

I was raised Catholic, back in the day, we couldn`t have meat on Friday, my Grandpa always said “the Pope`s brother must own a fish market”

First they encourage you.

Next, they force you.

Councilwoman Jan Perry, who introduced the motion with Councilman Ed Reyes, noted the environmental impacts of meat production, and she emphasized that a high-meat diet has been linked to health problems such as colon, prostate, kidney and breast cancers, as well as heart disease.

A diet high in anything will cause health problems. That is because we are omnivores. We are supposed to eat a diet that contains a little of all food groups.

There is no evidence that eating all vegetarian will have an impact on the environment. Livestock eat plant matter that we can't eat. I am not at all sure that converting crops to only foods that humans can eat is possible, and I have never seen an analysis. However, human health would suffer if there were an effort to force vegetarianism on everyone. Just like health would suffer with attempts to force a low sodium diet on everyone.

This will go from a campaign “encouraging” people not to eat meat on Mondays to LA passing a law that no meat can be sold in stores or restaurants on Mondays. Watch.
The wackos have a super majority in Cali now. Nothing to stop the madness.

Gee, I guess no meat on Friday was too close to religion for Kalifornia Commie Government; after all, have to separate Church and Communist STATE.

You can't make this up. The rich target area for comedic adventure is almost too much. Yeah, I can imagine the City Council of the City of (Fallen) Angels supplanting the old Catholic orthodoxy, and I can see the Angelinos even adopting such an ass-hat official fad, just about the time when it becomes necessary to adopt a food-less Friday.

Eat More Chickin'
