Rest Easy - LA's New Food Police - I Feel So Safe Now

Having solved their budget issues, solved unemployment, fixed the government schools, and eliminated all crime in Los Angeles the LA City Council moved to ban new fast food restaurant. Okay they didn't really fix their budget crisis, reduce their sky high unemployment rate, or fix the completely failed government schools, or reduce crime significantly - but they did find time and city resources to fight Ronald McDonald and Jack. I'm sure everyone in LA will sleep better tonight.

To clarify: they actually banned NEW fastfood restaurants, not existing ones.

It is messed up that almost all the businesses in ghetto areas are check cashing, fast food or liquor stores, but I would agree that this law seems overhanded.

It was most certainly proposed by an existing fast food franchise owner. Limits to competition will create artificial scarcity, driving up the values of existing franchises so they will be less likely to close and have the property used for something the community wants.

Perry's new plan bans new so-called "stand alone" fast food restaurants opening within half a mile of existing restaurants.

Its hard to define "fast food." Someone will try open up a community desired health food restaurant and the existing fast food franchises will get prevent it from opening, citing this new law.

The food police, they wanna steal my bread
The food police, they regulate my spread
The foodpolice, they're coming to ingest me, oh no

You know that talk is cheap
And those calories ain't nice
And when I eat too much
they don't think I'll survive the night, the night

'Cause they're waiting for me
They're looking for me
Every single night they're driving me insane
They're closing fast food chains.

The food police, they wanna steal my bread
(wanna steal my bread)
The food police, they regulate my spread
(regulate my spread)
The food police, they're coming to ingest me, oh no

Well, I can't buy fries
'Cause they're looking at me
And when I eat too much
Bet they're spying on me tonight, tonight

'Cause they're waiting for me
They're looking for me
Every single night they're driving me insane
They're closing fast food chains.

I try to eat, just a pancake, they won't let me alone
They don't get paid to take vacations or let me alone
They spy on me, I try to hide, they won't let me alone
They persecute me, they're the judge and jury all in one

'Cause they're waiting for me
They're looking for me
Every single night they're driving me insane
They're closing fast food chains.

The food police, they wanna steal my bread
The food police, they regulate my spread
The food police, they're coming to ingest me

The food police
The food police
The food police
The food police
