LA City Council Urges Citizens to Go Meatless on Mondays

Los Angeles City Council is urging all citizens to go meatless on Mondays.
The council believes this will help in the important fight against global warming climate change.

CNS News reported:

he Los Angeles City Council is urging all residents to observe “meatless Mondays” from now on.

A resolution adopted on Oct. 24 reads: “Be it resolved, that the Council of the City of Los Angeles hereby declares all Mondays as ‘Meatless Mondays’ in support of comprehensive sustainability efforts as well as to further encourage residents to eat a more varied plant-based diet to protect their health and protect animals.”

Councilwoman Jan Perry, who introduced the resolution, also wants to ban new fast-food restaurants in South Los Angeles.

“While this is a symbolic gesture, it is asking people to think about the food choices they make. Eating less meat can reverse some of our nation’s most common illnesses,” press reports quoted Perry as saying.

The resolution makes 15 points in support of meatless Mondays, including U.N. recognition that “livestock are one of the most significant contributors to today’s most serious environmental problems.”

    Someone PLEASE do a study showing a spike in beef, pork, and chicken consumption on Mondays in Los Angeles.

    Hitler was a vegetarian. Just sayin’…

    If they’re going meatless 1 day a week then all those people must be eating something else.

    If they’re eating vegetables then won’t all that farm equipment used to harvest all those extra vegetables actually ADD to global warming? Likewise for all those factories that process those vegetables? Likewise for all the trucks that ship vegetables to the stores?

    And if they’re all eating fish on Monday, won’t all those diesel-belching fishing boats needed to catch all that extra fish actually ADD to global warming? Likewise for all those factories that process fish? Likewise for all those trucks that ship that fish to the stores?

    This doesn’t even account for all the extra waste that will show up in landfills.

    So, what has been accomplished other than Leftists feeling better about themselves?

    This being California, I assume that they’ll soon find a way to compensate all the burger, chili, taco, BGQ, etc restaurants in CA that will see their tills much emptier if the peeps listen to these idiots.

    Mondays? Sorry, but that doesn’t work for me. I BBQ pork on Mondays.

  • rolling thunder

    Hmmm, let’s take this anti-global warming legislation one step further. Let’s abolish asphalt pavement. I’m sure the shoppers in LA would love that.

    All California…. Double your Meat Monday is now in effect

    Might I suggest this t-shirt as the only proper attire for Meatless Mondays:

    Having solved all other problems!

    Why am I getting the idea that, to Unicorn loving, drug adled Liberals everywhere, rather than calling for ‘brains’ zombies should be asking for ‘meat’.

  • Remco Kimber

    Meatless on Mondays?

    Well, it’s compatible with their being brainless of all days of the week,

  • snap boy

    People are the biggest problem for the environment.

  • lynndh

    Ah, so no meat on Mondays. Well, just as well because they can’t afford meat on Tues/Wed/Thur/Fri/Sat/Sun as well.

    One thing about vegetables and grain is all that fiber. Fiber that bubbles through the system and erupts at the exit. Methane gas, I think that’s what they call it. hmmmm.

    Does this include stray dogs in Hispanic neighborhoods? I’ve been to Mexico… I know what often appears on the menu!

    Double cheeseburger with an extra side of chicken middle fingers for me today, this ones for you LACC.

    You know where this all is coming from right? I tracked down the source. The Nazi UN.

    A ban on restaurants in south L.A.? I’m surprised the fast-food companies haven’t pulled out of every subprime sh-thole in America (and, boy, there are a lot of them).

    On the other hand, we’ve seen that America’s perpetual children can’t even make themselves a ham sandwich. Parasites who can’t get a photo ID aren’t good for much, really. That’s why they need a steady supply of handouts.

    But they demand respect!

    He he he. The Catholics embraced meatless Fridays. Lots of other religions also eschew (sorry) meat for various observances. I guess as people start moving away from their religions and embracing the “good times” culture and nanny statism, government has to step in and play the role religions did previously.
    Anyway, as a Catholic, meat is on the menu for Monday and all days…until lent. Then it’s fish. Fish that, according to the government, must jump right into the man powered row boats and are filleted by hand dockside and arrive at your grocery counter through teleportation….as they assume commercially produced fish makes nary a carbon footprint.

    Why not make the State Chambers the set for a reality series…because humour writers can’t touch what comes out of there.
