This is a shining example of why I cannot stand Authoritarian Progressives. They have to constantly "push" people to do what they want through the power of government. Here is a shining example from San Francisco. They don't want people staying in their office buildings, they want them walking the $hit and needle covered streets dodging junkies and then they make laws stating that company cafeterias cannot provide employees free or reduced cost food (That one is Mountain View, CA actually).

The best line is the quote from one of the local politicians who "co sponsored" the proposal:

“People will have to go out and (eat) lunch with the rest of us,”


Seriously, how the hell do Progressives justify this crap?

A proposal introduced Tuesday to ban employee cafeterias in future San Francisco office buildings represents more than an effort to boost the city’s restaurant scene, backers say.

“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.”

Introduced Tuesday, the proposed ban now will be reviewed by a city committee, reported KNTV.

The nearby city of Mountain View recently barred a new Facebook office from offering free- or reduced-cost meals at its cafeteria, reported the Chronicle.

What A Wonderful Progressive Utopia San Francisco Is!

I am sure many will move to Denver and Austin soon to replicate this Utopia and vote in the same progressive idiots.

The only people who use cash [for lunch] are drug dealers and mobsters.

What is the public servant getting paid for exactly, what's his job title, it wouldn't be the minister for stirring the pot by any chance... Talk about micro managing people lives, that's the taste of freedom, freedom to do as you're told.

You're link goes to a white nationalist blog (so you got that part right, I think) but it has nothing to do with your op story.

Of course, that didn't slow down the first few triggered reactionary comments so I think you're alright.

Jesus, you guys bark at whatever shadow you see these days.

I will say I use cash for most things. I have had an ATM card for the majority of my adult life, and a credit card since I was married.
I still use cash for most things.
I have had corporate credit cards since I was in my early 20s.

On topic.
The elected officials of my state are due to the tyranny of the majority populations being in huge cities. Not really a representation of the state. The USA should look at California as an example. This is what happens when population (i.e. direct democracy) rules.

They want all of those highly paid executives to go out and spend their money amongst the smaller businesses. or else!!

Too many “artists” and bums for most people’s taste. That place is a mecca for people who think you should give them a dollar or buy some of their “art”

The entire town is covered in # and needles that have been used so much, they are too dull to prick with. Not to mention the overwhelming smell of B.O. and lavender.

I think people who don't like to watch people poop on the street while they eat are very elitist

Plus anyone who doesn't care about the people who are shooting up and leaving needles behind, are a heartless nazi.

so i totally understand making those right wing nazis go out and enjoy the culture and wonderful people of SF.

The Modesto Bee is a white nationalist blog? I'd never heard of it, but with Volvo ads smacking me in the face, etc, it doesnt strike me as such.

Anyways, if 'fake news', the Big Story at this juncture is that nobody was even surprised by this sort of insanity from over in that dastardly realm.

Most of my employment situations have involved having a 30 minute lunch, if I were supposed to go out and get lunch my time would be used up just coming and going..stupid f'n idea, they should worry about things that actually matter..like sh#t in the streets first maybe.

What better passive aggressive dehumanization machinations even possible than disrupting the lunch time pow wows coworkers get to spend together 'as themselves' chatting during lunchtime? Maybe they might form up consensus' of opinions about the local BS going on, and become 'a problem', therefore, in a truly (stereotypical) 'fascist' realm such a measure makes perfect sense. Its even to be expected.

An additional source for you.

Proposed SF law could force tech workers to actually go out for lunch

Is the San Francisco Chronicle a white nationalist publication too?

I can't keep up.
