You're dreaming if it makes a difference. McD's ad budget
is 1.8 BILLION. The legal costs were about $26 million. Let's face
it, the McD's execs are laughing at you. The public has
voted their verdict, and it's over 400 billion sold, and rising
every day.

Why ignore them? There is soooo much to critize Mcds with, and yet
the 'lawsuit two' had to make up more stuff? The rainforest lies
just make them look like fools. If they just stuck to REAL facts, they
would have won the case.
