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.

  • even steven

    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.

  • bigkahuna

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

  • Might I suggest this t-shirt as the only proper attire for Meatless Mondays: http://www.cafepress.com/gigocorp.363649805

    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.

  • srdem65

    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.

  • paul52

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

  • StandUpChuck

    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.

  • bobdog

    This is what liberal government gives you. Piss-ant, feel good ordinances while the city circles the drain.

    Keep your eye on Illinois. We’re about to catch up to California with a veto-proof Democrat House and a veto-proof Democrat Senate.

    It’s a race to the bottom of the bowl.

    #12,
    Snap Boy….don’t reproduce then. Easy…just keep your pants zipped! Oh, ya…you mean OTHER people are bad for the environment, you want to go on enjoying ALL of life’s perks that YOU can get YOUR hands on. 😉 Riiight…got it.

    Environmentalism is our present-day Apocalypto madness.

  • valerie

    Just don’t do it on Friday, or say it’s for religious reasons.

    Meh.

  • Buffalobob

    The UN “livestock are one of the most significant contributors to today’s most serious environmental problems.” Well let’s just slaughter the tens of millions of herbivores that roam Africa. The Buffalo, Antelope, Zebras, deer, then move on to the Americas, Bison, Deer, Elk, Goats, Lamas, Sheep, hell the list is endless. Or am I missing something. Do only domestic Cows fart?

  • MVH

    Looks like brainless morons [yes, it’s a double negative] “meat” Monday through Friday at LA’s City Council, anyway.

  • stuart

    Meatless on Mondays? Boy, thats going to cost them the gay vote.

  • BigRed

    “livestock are one of the most significant contributors to today’s most serious environmental problems.”

    Damned cows driving SUV’s with the air-conditioning running full blast. Don’t they care?!!

  • microcosme

    I live in L.A. It’s Monday today. I’m eating meat. PPPPHHHHHHTHT to these idiots.

  • Vicky Hernandez

    Seriously! Is she going to get cows to stop their flatulence on Mondays, too?

    Jan Perry is a stupid cow. Ha, ha, ha.
    Sorry I couldn’t help myself. Aaah, ha, ha, ha…

  • Rhinestone Suderman

    Next, it will be meatless Tuesdays.

    Then, meatless Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays. On Sunday, we can watch videos of the Obamas eating wagyu steak, and get our protien fix that way.

    By that point, it will no longer be voluntary, it will be mandatory. After all, Americans eat too much, and are responsible for all the ills of the world. Why should they have good food?

    An exception will be made, of course, for Halal meat. . .

  • Jim

    The rest of us need to eat twice as much meat on Mon to overcome these fools!

  • Chris

    I just ate 2 triple baconator burgers from Wendy’s. LA city council can go pound sand.

    No sex on Mon. for da gheys

    Just castrate yourselves and you can go meatless for life….morons!

    Yeah baby, because the lack of protein is the path for a stronger nation.

    Los Angeles City Council is hereby urged to keep their stupid ideas to themselves and in turn stick their head in the nearest toilet and flush. They will feel much better afterwards.

    With all of the things happening in the world and this…. it almost trumps the stupidity of putting a vote for porn stars to wear condoms on the ballot. “Rome” burns and these politicians divert the attention of the public with folly and the public falls into step. Bread and all the Kardashian shows you can watch while we steal your freedom.

  • Curly Bill

    Most men in California are already meatless so this shouldn’t be much of a stretch.

  • DMG

    Can you imagine, elected officials suggesting what we should eat? Next thing you know they’ll be lecturing us about abstinence before marriage.

    Must be nice to have that kind of time and money in the city coffers to devote to a subject totally out of the purview of city government…

  • DMG

    If they’re eating vegetables then won’t all that farm equipment used to harvest all those extra vegetables actually ADD to global warming?

    Not if you consider that it takes 15 pounds of grain to produce 1 pound of beef.

  • DMG

    Do only domestic Cows fart?

    No, but there are some 3.5 billion domesticated ruminants to about 75 million living in the wild.

    BTW, most of the methane comes from belching, not farting.

  • Chris in N.Va.

    Well, that will complement nicely their 24x7x365 “Brainless” days that they otherwise dutifully observe.

    Way to go, folks!

    Hope all the Gov. Moonbeam supporters now enjoy Big Brother sticking his foot (and other *ahem* appendages) into their lives.

    Enjoy!!!

    the catholics have been skipping meat on fridays…well, not so much anymore but anyway…ever since a pope decided that it was a way to help the failing italian fishing industry. eventually, the practice came to be taken as a religious duty which was nonsense but, hey, that’s organized religion for you. now we have the climate change faithful being urged to follow in the catholics’ footsteps in some sort of duty to gaia. it ain’t gonna happen, of course, but ‘the more things change…’, eh ?

  • Underfed

    If ya don’t eat yur meat ya can’t have yur puddin.

  • The LA City Council can’t achieve anything meaningful. Their schools are violent. Their streets are violent. They encourage churches to act as sanctuaries for illegals. As a governing body they completely fail to respect the constitution or look after the best interests of law-abiding citizens. So, they’ve resorted to telling people what to eat. Pathetic. And what good is restricting new restaurants?

  • lethargic

    I’m making Mondays Meat-filled Mondays. Abstaining from meat is for Fridays and it’s not about the climate.

    How about they have weedless weekdays so these morons can stop coming up with such stupid ideas and try to “suggest” (more like forcing them down our throats). These are the moonbats the “brightest” among us keep voting into various levels of political office here in the glorious “People’s Republic of Kalifornia”.

    Right now, it’s a suggestion… What’s next? Outlawing whatever on whatever weekday they decide should it get to that.

    Are we this stupid? Meanwhile the rest of the country laughs and see’s this for the stupidity that it is. No wonder the people with common sense are leaving our state?

    Our wonderful tax dollars at work!

  • Stiff_One

    YES! At least the cows in California truly are happy!
