California Decides For Parents What Their Children Can Drink
Article from The Daily Wire by Amanda Prestigiacomo.
California is home to some of the most absurd nanny state laws in the union: defy a plastic straw ban and you might find yourself behind bars; buy a Happy Meal for your screaming child and the toy is embargoed; catch a $500 fine for improperly discarding your recyclable trash.
Looking to top their absurdity, the California Senate has proposed a bill which would ban restaurants from serving children any drinks other than unflavored milk or water with their meals.
Senate Bill 1192 was proposed by Senate Majority Leader Bill Monning with the intent to combat childhood obesity. It passed the Assembly on Thursday.
Though the bill forces restaurants to only offer unflavored milk or water with children’s meals, patrons will be allowed to separately purchase other beverages of their choice, such as soda or juice.

The voters in California send idiots to the legislature, how can they reasonably expect common sense or anything other than idiocy from their elected things?
couple of decades back a Hispanic woman running for office in my district won,I didn’t vote for her because of her ineptness .. once in office she started drafting the same laws that are now being pushed… back then the district was conservative but her falsehood got her elected as being non-partisan….
she created a law to tax sodas to stop kids from getting fat, which we all know its BS just to get the door open to create another source of revenue… when her term was up and she ran for re-election she was voted out.. she moved to another district and the same thing happened and was voted out again…
now we have morons all over thinking taxing items to stop kids or people from whatever will work….
Well they are certainly idiots I’ll give you that. And they are also slimeballs way down humanity’s food chain.
People this is communism at its best. Kick this communism state out. Build walls to keep them in and ban any flights to or from there. They are crazy. Anyone who hates the legislature come to Texas
God help us all.
The disease is too many elected officials with nothing worthwhile to do. California’s affliction with this disease is just more advanced than the other states. Trump is reversing the symptoms but won’t cure it before his terms run out.
It will never work. Don’t you know that yuppie puppies are only allowed to drink soy or almond milk. – How is that going to work out?
This is just another reason for strict adherence to the second amendment. Nothing like a sawed off 12 ga Greener to get a Pepsi for you kid.
when you put liberal democrats in office dont expect anything good for the citizens to happen, Illegals will love them.
