: I have never though about the devastation that a big multi-national corporation like Mc Donalds can cause. Like alot of people I have been to Mc D's because it has been handy and fast - yet knowing that in 1/2 hour I'd be hungry again. Gradually as I've gotten older (a ripe old 22), I have come to believe that when that burger craving comes upon me, it is much more satisfying to walk to the local take-away and get a deli-burger, with real salad, thick slices of onion, beetroot that stains your fingers, lettuce you have to chew and best of all, crispy, toasted buns, and eat it on the waterfront. Not only is this more filling, it tastes great and helps keep a small business paying the bills on time. I applaud the effort of those who are valiant in their struggle against corporate bullying, but it lies upon us, everyone, just saying NO to McDonalds and buying food that tastes like food.

Julie, I couldn't agree more with what you say. However , I call it "Yuckdonalds" so does my 11 year old daughter. Recently she was invited to a friends birthday party, but she could only bring herself to eat the "fries". The poor girl felt so left out, and I wondered if I had done the "right" thing in putting her off Yuckers. Is it right for me to force my beliefs onto her? The answer must be yes, because, Its every parent's duty to lead their children along the right path. She gladly and proudly marched along next to me to stop the French nuclear tests and to save our forests. We have planted trees and plants together with our local "freinds of" group and now maybe she'll be with me as I hand out anti -Macdonalds leaflets. With young people like you and her around perhaps there is hope yet!!!!!!! Peace, Love, and Happiness to all who stand up and yell "stop it! this is not right"
