Los Angeles is STUCK ON STOOPIT!

The LCR reports that LA is fighting its 11.7% unemployment rate by BANNING JOBS!

So Los Angeles unemployed get a special treat this holiday season. A nice little ban on new fast food jobs and all for the most dire cause of healthier food choices.

This seems like déjà-vous to me. I can remember reading about this back in 2008, although I’m not sure what happened. I assume the moratorium on fast food restaurants expired thus giving LA the ridiculous opportunity to do it all over again, but this time while the city is going through massive unemployment to the tune of 11.7%. However, we’ll come back to this.

Regardless, CRAZY-IN-CA’s 2010 model marches on with a fresh ban, complete with all the stock liberal features we’ve come to know and expect. Like everyone’s favorite unknown bureaucrat citing government’s good intentions while professing not to be micromanaging what people are eating while simultaneously lauding how they are micromanaging what people are eating:

“This is not an attempt to control people as to what they can put into their mouths. This is an attempt to diversify their food options,” said councilmember Jan Perry.

Political Correctness trumps common sense again!
