McDonald Rant

There is not enough stupidity in this world already. We have a nutritional watchdog group that just can’t take “no” for an answer. Today CNN announced they are again putting together a lawsuit to go after McDonalds for giving away toys with their happy meals because it causes the kids to eat too much fat and may cause obesity. A judge turned it down once. He stated McDonalds isn’t responsible for obesity. Now they are going forward with another suit.
If this goes to trial and the watchdog group wins, how long will it be before we have Grease Police knocking on your door to see what you are feeding your kids. It’s totally ridiculous. Parents don’t take the kids to McDonalds for every meal. Sometimes they take them to Burger King or they eat at home. Or they might eat at Grandma’s. Who knows what Grandma might feed them, maybe a few homemade greasy donuts. Not only that, why are kids more important than adults? Adults eat too much fat and nobody says anything about it, at least to your face. The doctor might harp on it a little bit, but you can just tell him to walk a mile in your shoes. He’ll get hungry too.

 I think it’s really about the toys. Those McDonald people buy more toys than anybody does and it’s beginning to infringe on Santa Clauses domain. Santa Claus is probably behind the whole thing. That’s my thoughts on the subject.

Thanks for your wonderful insight. Yeah, that's gotta be it.
Sometimes I think Blogger is standing over my shoulder. They are always coming up with a fitting word. This time my word is scemi. SeeMe? Weird!!!!
I think I'm going to bed and pull the covers over my head.

Although we don't give McDonald's any business for several reasons, parents not fast-food corporations are responsible for raising children. The children can't drive themselves there. Public pressure is the best way to get McDonald's to serve healthful food. This kerfuffle over toys is ridiculous.
