Post subject:  Bacon Banned in L.A.

The Department of Public Health in Los Angelas has recently banned the selling of bacon-wrapped hot dogs. Ah, the sweet, salty, taste of health regulation.

“Bacon is a potentially hazardous food,” says Terrence Powell of the LA County Health Department. Potentially hazardous? Every food has its hazards. Even some salads have cherry tomatoes that could possibly be choked on.

When asked how many people were getting sick from bacon, Powell responded, "Thats kind of a nebulous number." Translation: There are no statistics on this, but we think bacon is bad for you.

Vendors can continue to sell the bacon-wrapped dogs, however, as long as they purchase a new street cart at the cost of $26,000. That is a huge investment for a small street vending business. But, alas, if they do not purchase the cart then they are not allowed to sell bacon, which is a huge item in the street vending business.

One such vendor has said that when she informs the customers that she cannot sell bacon most will immediately leave and go to one of the stands that are permitted to sell the illicit substance. So what recourse is there for the small-time vendors that cannot afford the new equipment? It looks like they will be forced to continue the black market bacon trade until they too are caught in the tangled web of the War on Bacon.

Maybe they should ban every one from eating fast food and perhaps make a law that says that it's illegal to not be a vegetarian.

How is it even legal to ban a food. If anyone challenges this in court I have a feeling it would get thrown out. I'm all about healthy eating but forcing people to do it isn't the right way.

This is a bunch of bull shit if it is true and isn't true. Sounds like some of the Islamist whack-os are involved some how.

Bacon is "cured" in that it is treated with preservatives, so any health risks are minimal. The things to worry about are what offal is in the hot dogs, and did the vendor wash his/her hands after picking their ass or their nose.

I get a hunch that the bacon is mostly to disguise the shitty hot dogs. :werd:

UH = eventually state mandated diets (im talking about 30-40 yrs from now, after they slowly whittle away at public resistance to the idea)
