Denver Appeases the Green Gods

with 6 comments

The reduced oxygen in the Mile High City is taking it’s toll on Denver’s Mayor John Hickenlooper. It appears that the cheese has finally slid off his cracker judging from this latest attempt to appease the green gods.

Warning to Southern delegates to the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver this August: it will be a no-fry zone.

As part of the effort to make the August 25-28 convention the greenest ever, the Democrats’ guidelines for food catering include one that strikes at the heart of Southern cuisine: no fried food.

No fried chicken. No fried catfish. No fried green tomatoes. No fried okra. No fried anything.

In promoting healthy eating habits, the Democratic guidelines say every meal should be nutritious and include “at least three of the following colors: red, green, yellow, purple/blue and white.”

“It’s the new patriotism,” says Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, the driving force behind the greening of the Democratic convention.

However, if presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain starts gaining in the polls on Barack Obama, who will accept the Democratic nomination in Denver, the Democrats may find they’ve got bigger fish to fry? – uh, make that – bake

Talk about a place where all reason is tossed to the wind. If the people of Denver accept this type of government intrusion and madness, then they deserve the increased tyrannical control that is sure to follow.

  1. I wonder if this includes no oil in salad dressing, no tomatoes no cheese or butter products they are all bad for your health! Is he closing Mac Donald’s and others to enforce this no fry zone? Will he insult the French by banning French fries? Lets us not forget our Asian friends that fry almost everything!

    This guy does not need more oxygen, he is in serious need of a brain transplant!

  2. Political tyrants in the mold of Mayor John Hickenlooper see “Green Mania” as a way to raise taxes and control people. McDonalds is safe, but expect higher taxes every time you eat there… for our own good.

  3. Hi LC,

    This is an insult to the honor of the South! I am going to write my Congressional representatives at once to insist that we, again, secede from the Union. This time, by the way, we’ll win.

  4. Yep, there’s definitely an insult in there from the Mayor of Denver. I see it as a moral imperative for all Southern Representatives to walk into the convention wearing a stars and bars suit eating fried chicken.

    Greening of the Democrat Convention is the new patriotism. This again proves that some people enter politics because they are too stupid to do anything else.

  5. Surely the 1st Amendment protects fried foods?! 🙂

  6. “It’s the new patriotism,” says Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper.

    The new patriotism.

    The theft of our national character continues unimpeded.

    “Tax and control” is and always has been the liberal democrat objective. In its more-likely-to-be-successful-than-not form we see the manipulation of critical energy sources and reserves.

    Treason, a byword of liberalism rather than an epithet, is a way of life for a seeming majority of public employees. A seeming majority.

    Treason? How’s this: if we are ever nuked it is my hope that it happens in DC while all systems are in full session and that, surely miraculously, all of our founding documents and related history are all that is saved.
