Jack Goes All Libtard: Yanks Toys in Kid’s Meals

What a crock of libtarded BS!  It’s not the toys making kids fat; it’s all that high-calorie, high-carb food combined with a sedentary lifestyle.  Hey, here’s an idea:  Throw away the Xbox, get your kids off the computer, turn off the television, and kick your kids out of the house for a few hours so they can play stick-ball or something.  Yes, it really is that simple:

Jack in the Box yanks toys from kids’ meals

By Mary SlossonLOS ANGELES | Wed Jun 22, 2011

(Reuters) – Fast-food chain Jack in the Box has pulled toys from its kids’ meals, a spokesman told Reuters on Tuesday.

The move, which managers at Los Angeles outlets said took effect on Thursday, comes as fast-food companies are under pressure to stop using toys to market children’s meals that are high in calories, sugar, fat and salt.

Lawmakers in San Francisco and nearby Santa Clara County have passed laws that will require kids’ meals to meet certain nutritional standards before they can be sold with toys.

CSPI [Center for Science in Public Interest] in December sued McDonald’s Corp, the world’s largest hamburger chain, to stop it from using Happy Meal toys to lure children into its restaurants.

Consumer and health advocates are using the announcement to put pressure on McDonalds, Burger King, Taco Bell and other fast food chains that still include toys in kids’ meals.

    Jack in the Crack has the crappiest food in the fast food industry. I would not eat there if they paid me.

    Ummm, geesh, I know this may sound a bit like stereotyping, but do you ‘spose that the family/parent that spends a substantial amount of their food budget eating at fast food restaurants are not inclined to care all that much about what Jr eats? That would be too much like that whole, “taking responsibility for ones own actions” thingy that gets in the way of “do whateverthehell you want and blame others” mentality ingrained in the the minds of lefties during the period of lawsuit explosion in our country.

    This might harm you if you use it wrong? – there’s a label for that; and a lawsuit. Whatever you do, don’t think for yourselves. Let *us* take care of you. Sit baaaack…there ya go….nice and comfy…..see TV…..have a donut.
    Eat – Feel good for this moment. Be entertained. Your eyes are getting sleepy.

      I’m glad you showed up Gonzo cause I was just wondering what I should have for lunch./s🙂

      • Gonzo Says:

        Eat whatever you want tg, and don’t worry…it is somebody elses fault.
        Plus, there is a pill for whatever may ail you later. heh heh heh.

        Actually, I took the advice of a natural-path I met in passing once.
        Eat whatever you want 1 day of the week, and the rest of the week eat sensibly/healthy. I’m not exactly vegan, (I like bbq ribs too much), but am quite selective with regard to food source and ingredient lists.
        A brother-in-law graduated as a chemist, and was picked up by a food company. He was appalled at what passes as edible. That was my first clue.

          Yeah, occasionally when I have a long drive home I will stop by McDonalds for a two cheeseburger snack to hold me over until I get home for dinner. Of course everybody always tells me I could gain a little weight, I keep trying. What they really mean is, where the hell is your fat? I’m no health nut, ala Euell Gibbons, although Grape Nuts are fairly good. Like you, I eat what I want always have, but with consideration. Although I must say I have quite a weakness for chocolate, just can’t help it, oh and Pizza, the two slice deal at lunch is a much better value than one burger.


  3. As a semi-regular character at local fast food restraunts I agree with Dr Bulldog… ITS HIGH Calorie and thats whats make us all fat and unhappy. Its not the fastfood companies fault its OUR fault for not excersising and eatting thier junk.

    Wanna change things DONT rely on the guv…

    Buy fruits, veggies and other natural goods, cook and eat at home.

    • tgusa Says:

      I have several friends that like to eat at Jacks, I’ve been along for the ride, never really saw any kids there. Crappy idea to go with crappy food, hot air, I suppose.

      • tgusa Says:

        In my area the fast food groups have hired people who are often rude, sometimes unintelligible and don’t give a damn about the fact that you paid for the food and therefore the food is done up right so I don’t use them anymore. There are several, hole in the wall burger joints around that are much better, you may have to seek them out, drive a little further, but, ah well.


  4. Too bad there isnt a “Celebrity Death match” episode with ‘jack,’ ‘burger king’, ‘wendys’ & ‘col sanders kicking the s*** out of each other.

    Or maybe that would great hentai porn…?

    • Gonzo Says:

      Death match hmmm. I can see it now. Each in their respective corners, dancing around, air punching, … the bell rings. They run to center ring, posture and prance, get light headed and have to go back to their corners and sit for a bit to catch their breath. Option 2 is looking better.

    Might I add that IMHO lazy parents contribute to overweight and lazy children in most cases. My children were always encouraged to play outdoors as are my 6 grandchildren, The most lacking element in parenting is time spent with children which costs nothing but is highly rewarding. Years ago I took my 3 children and as many cousins and friends as could fit into my van and we had a great time at parks, playgrounds, reservations, historical sites and museums at little or no cost. I repeat it was time well spent and brings back many pleasant memories.

    • freeapostate Says:

      Agreed. The value of fatherhood is highly underrated.
      IMHO, spending time with, and having a positive influence on, a child is one of the most noble of all endeavors – and rewarding in a way in which I am without words for which to adequately articulate.

      • Big Frank Says:

        My greatest reward this Fathers Day was that we were all together. The hand made cards and little gifts from the Grandchildren made my day.. Were it not for. them I would have fled NJ years ago.


  6. Welcome to the online battles apostate.

    Yes indeed spending time with your kids is the best way to give them great memories, teach them your beliefs, teach them the local history of the place you live in and give them excersise in the many parks in the USA and elsewhere.

    I am glad that there are plenty of water ways, parks and historical areas in my home town to take my kids to and teach them.
