Michigan lawmakers want to control the toys McDonald’s puts in Happy Meals

Ever thought politicians have just way too much time on their hands? Well, that seems to be exceedingly true for lawmakers in Michigan.

What are they doing exactly? Are they looking to help their state’s economy by making it more business friendly? No. Are they trying to help their state’s schools by pumping more money into education. Nope.

Politicians in the great state of Michigan are trying to police McDonald’s.  A resolution introduced by a Democrat wants to control what toys the golden arches puts in their Happy Meals.

Several Michigan lawmakers are absolutely dismayed at the fact that McDonald’s would give boys’ toys to boys and girls’ toys to girls. I know right, the absolute horror.

How incredibly stupid can you get? If you’re a Michigan resident and you see your tax dollars are going to pay for this moronic, idiotic waste of time, you’ve got to be more than than a little upset.

The following is actually a part of the resolution that has been introduced in the Michigan legislature:

“This is a significant issue as billions of these meals are sold every year and this practice can influence and limit children’s imaginations and interests by promoting some toys as only suitable for girls and others only for boys.’’

This is the kind of stupidity one would expect from somewhere like California, Vermont or Oregon, but not Michigan.

What in the world are people thinking? Is everything in the state of Michigan perfect that lawmakers find this kind of junk necessary? Since Detroit is still in Michigan, I’m going to venture to say that no, not everything in perfect in the Midwestern state.
