California May Pass Law to Protect Black People from Soda
Frontpage Mag ^ | 02/20/14 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 02/23/2014 4:06:59 PM PST by blueyon

Bloombergism is alive and well in California as another front is declared in the War on Soda. Apparently black people can’t be trusted to decide what they want to eat or drink on their own.

They must be protected from their food choices by the nanny state.

A bill introduced in the California senate would require warning labels for soda and give state bureaucrats the authority to inspect businesses to ensure compliance.

Sen. Bill Monning (D.) introduced the “Sugar-Sweetened Beverage Safety Warning Act”

"Monning’s office said the bill is necessary for California’s “communities of color.”".....

I hope this story is a joke because if not, the left is taking controlling people to far. I mean now they want to ban food/drink's because of the over use by a group/race/or community.......This, in my mind, is the true Definition of being Racist

They’re bright enough to make the decision on whether their unborn child gets to live or die but they can’t be trusted with making decisions about soda pop! Their nannies have to do that for them. I LOVE THIS COUNTRY!!!

Wouldn’t it be simpler to have segregated soda fountains, and require minorities to drink only water from their fountains. They could put up the same signs that the Democrats put up in the south in the 1950s. http://www.loc.gov/pictures/resource/fsa.8a26761/

A better headline:

“Politicians Demand More Donations Fromn Soda Producers.”

But a business run by people whose religion does not support gay marriage still have to bake a cake for the wedding reception? I just don’t understand.

The fact that taxpayers are providing these “communities of color” with robust rations via EBT each month may have some effect in them eating too many calories.

Truth has become stranger than fiction.

Food assistance has become warped through political prostitution. I would be willing to bet that 50% of EBT food purchases are junk food and that is what folks who work in groceries have said.

This is a curse for many reasons, but the worst is that we also pay for their health care. As long as the big agricultural and retail companies pay off the politicians this madness will continue.

“I’ve concluded that the Onion isn’t satire, it’s clairvoyant.”

So is the movie “Idiocracy”.

The Onion should change their moniker to “The Libtard”. They would no longer have to make anything up.

California blacks and Hispanics can sleep soundly now.

Smart white liberal State Senator Bill Morning is covering for their ignorance and looking after their health.

The Democrats looked upon blacks as sub human in the days of slavery. They still have that view today.

So California politicians think that blacks are too ignorant or childlike to decide how they want to live, what they want to drink?

Whoa is Greenfield really John Semmens, or is Semmens really Greenfield.

Surely this is a form of satire.

“I’ve concluded that the Onion isn’t satire, it’s clairvoyant.”

The Onion is probably a pr publication, paid for by the NSA. It isn’ clairvoyant to the NSA onlookers, who monitor the elite liberals in America.
