San Francisco Weighing Yet Another Ban, This One is the Most Absurd Yet

Published

on

A proposal was introduced on Tuesday in the city of San Francisco that seeks yet another ridiculous ban on something completely harmless, which has become sort of a hallmark for liberals as of late.

First it was guns, then it was sodas, next came straws, and now we have folks wanting to ban employee cafeterias. Yes, employee cafeterias.

Why are they attempting to do this ban? To strip people’s freedom of choice and force them to go out to eat in an effort to boost the city’s restaurant industry.

“People will have to go out and (eat) lunch with the rest of us,” Aaron Peskin, a San Francisco supervisor who co-sponsored the proposal, told The San Francisco Examiner.

“This is also about a cultural shift,” Supervisor Ahsha Safai, who proposed the ban, told The San Francisco Chronicle. “We don’t want employees biking or driving into their office, staying there all day long and going home. This is about getting people out of their office, interacting with the community and adding to the vibrancy of the community.”

But some employees at San Francisco tech giants targeted by the proposal need free or reduced-cost meals typically offered at the cafeterias, Sam Schneidman, who works in San Francisco, told KNTV.

Is it just me or is San Francisco fully transformed into some sort of wacky Communist wonderland?

Are you an introvert who feels happiest when you are keeping to yourself, minding your own business and living your own life? Tough noogies. You’re going to go out and mingle with the rest of the hive or else!

That’s essentially the message these people seem to be sending out. They want to force you to be part of the community. News flash. If you have to force someone to be part of your community by getting rid of something, that means your community sucks. Period.

“A lot of people who rely on the benefit aren’t necessarily highly compensated engineers and it’s something that a lot of tech workers depend on,” Schneidman told the station.

Anthony Myint, co-owner of the Perennial restaurant in the city’s mid-market neighborhood, told the Chronicle he expected a brisk lunchtime business, but instead sees only a few customers for lunch each day.

“We misunderstood the pervasiveness of the company cafeterias inside,” Myint told the publication. He probably would have chosen another location had he known, he said.

“You can’t compete with free,” Gwyneth Borden, executive director of the Golden Gate Restaurant Association, told the Chronicle.

This is just pure insanity. The whole reason behind this legislation serves to undermine the free market system. People have free choice and to take that away from them to force them to support businesses is morally wrong. If a company wants to be successful, they have to be competitive. If they can’t be competitive or offer people something enticing enough to draw them out, then they don’t need to be in business.

Liberalism truly is a mental disorder.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
