So, you can't stay isolated and protected in your Ivory Tower?

You can't get in your car at home, drive to work, get out of car, enter work - - - and never mingle with those on the street.

Does sound a bit elitist, doesn't it?

I remember when I worked on the 32nd floor in downtown Los Angeles. I looked down at the people below and felt superior (I was only 20).

Yes, you do feel superior and protected in your Ivory Tower.





I think you have the same mindset as those politicians.

Make them conform to a "better" worldview.

Thanks for that but it's apparent that facts and logic don't apply when the topic is ultra liberal San Fran.


It is you that have failed in logic.


The convenience of a subsidised canteen in high skilled jobs is a life line in a lot of work, especially in the science and technology fields where you might have to work long and late hours.


Lol dude i work 6 days a week programming and running machines....and I buy my own lunches.

Absolutely disgusting.

They should ignore this "law" entirely, and force the worthless authoritarians to send in their armed socialist enforcers in typical dirty socialist fashion. Watch how many real American LEOs outright refuse to use force against a fellow citizen over where they choose to eat their lunch.

We have individual, personal choice. There is no collective. No "community" outside the voluntary association of individuals with other select individuals (not everyone is worth associating with)

The needle junkies and side-walk "bathroom" users are not something I would ever associate with. Most Americans are simply better than that/them. Not to mention all the dirty socialists/commies who shower weekly but expect the rest of us to eat food anywhere near them. No thanks. Take a shower, then we'll talk about the others reasons I'd say NO

The far-left needs to go.

Typical projection by you I see. Hint, not everyone is a git like you. Some actually don't think of themselves as superior just because they prefer to eat in the same building as their co-workers, in the event a business issue arises that requires them to IMMEDIATELY return to the office.

But, you keep on projecting your own brand of warped idealism upon everyone. That is what the far leftists do best, and why the "blue wave" will look like a swirling vortex surrounded by a white porcelain bowl come fall.

Excuse me? It is called "skilled labor" or just "employment" compared to unemployed homeless needle junkies. Call it elitist if you want, I call it achievement. You're comparing two entirely different straw-men. We have the right to be successful and to associate with other successful/productive individuals.

Who wants to eat (or even exist) around a bunch of druggie junkies, hippies, commies and thugs? I sure as hell don't.

Call it an ivory tower if you want, but we didn't work our entire lives and save/spend money RESPONSIBLY just to be lumped in the same category as those who did not do those things.

Stop trying to force association. Stop trying to make all folks seem the same - we're not. Not even close.

That aforementioned group? The junkie commie thugs? I have zero in common with them. Nor do I want to have anything in common with them.

And FYI, it has nothing to do with protect - my Glock 9mm takes care of that (the one I carry daily, everywhere I go). However, I *never* go into dirty/junkie/cracked-out areas simply because I am smart enough to avoid trouble-areas where I'm more likely to have to defend myself from a deranged/drugged out threat (especially the "types" of areas you just mentioned). I don't feel like getting involved in a defensive shooting incident over some druggie trying to rob me at screwdriver-point for my pocket change.

Best to avoid trouble areas & bad parts of town like that. I worked too damn hard to get lumped in with those losers.

And these bastard traitors wonder why we refuse to give even an inch on the Second amendment.

From the looks of things (based on actual statements & examples), any government they'd put together would be totally illegitimate and is one we'd be Constitutionally duty-bound to abolish.

The cafeterias were not mandatory. People could still choose to go out of their workplace.

This however, Will be mandatory. People will no longer be able to choose.

How the discussion went any further than that...bewilders me. In fact, this is the sort of conversation that ought to take place inside someone's head, before they even open their mouth thinking it's a good idea.

I agree, we definitely cannot trust them to produce a cohesive thought, let alone a sensible piece of legislation, so we need to watch them like a hawk.

Oh, look at all the intentional - - - missing the point posters.

All the "My Porch" mentality.

So these restaurants are losing money. Why? Because of the liberal policies in place that protect and encourage the homeless population, you know, those without money. What person in their right mind wants to walk those crap-laden streets and get harassed? I don't step in crap and needles (well, I do come across a few bullets and once, a crack pipe) on my way to the gas station but I still dread it because every day someone aggressively begs off of me there. Multiply that by 10 and I can see why workers don't want to eat away from their workplace. I suppose freedom of association doesn't mean anything to those city leaders.

What I didn't mention is - - I went out to lunch.

I went to all the little "mom/pop" hole-in-the-walls - - in downtown Los Angeles.

I worked there for about 2 years.

I did go out and meet the neighborhood. Got to know many of those "little people" I could see from my 22nd floor.

I understand the division of how it can feel and affect the mindset, isolated and protected in the Ivory Tower.

I did not choose the Ivory Tower.

And that is what you libs don't understand FREEDOM OF CHOICE.

people should be free to eat and associate where they like, not have the government mandate that choice for them.

So you want to legislate morality.



She does, except she's not one of those icky religious, so it's all OK for her to shove it down our throats.

What business is it of the state that allows them to determine what a company wants to charge its employees?


A company should have the freedom to charge a penny per meal if that's what they so choose.



Fine. You just don't get certain tax breaks. Easy peesy. New development will know this in advance. This is about saving mom and pop operations. Not corporate fascism. The opposite in fact.


Maybe if they want Mom and Pop to stay in business, they should make it easy for Mom and Pop to stay in business instead of passing regulations and tax laws that kill Mom and Pop business.

Instead, they pass laws to try to force people to behave like they want. I guarantee you this won't work like they plan.

You'd figure people crapping in the streets would create an ecological disaster.

Strangely though, The Church of climatology is silent on this issue.



It has. That's likely where the hepatitis epidemic came from.
