: : So far on this board, NO ONE but Rex has been able to debate with me. Rex is very busy, yet he still finds the time to debate, and I understand that he can't keep up with me, as he has a site to run 24-7. My chalenge to you is this: take any one of my posts that Rex has NOT replyed to, and reply to it. If you can prove that McDonalds has done ANYTHING that successful companies hace, or that is unethical, I will leave one board of the victors choice. No catch, no lie. If I win you don't have to do anything. Fair enough? You could also reply tome by taking the essence of what I say and replying to this message. Any takers?

: im haveing trouble understanding what is wrong with saying what has already been said...just becuase someone says something they didnt come up with , how can that mean that its not true or not a valid point or anything less than the first time it was said? if i hear good ideas that i agree with im gonna accept em and try to spread em...so what exactly is wrong with that?

I think you miss the point. Pointing me to information is fine, but if you rely on that for an entire argument,it doesn't work to well.
