Lang Tran: Don't you think alot more people would be willing to give up fast food if you make the connection in their mind between McDonald's business practices and starving children in the Third World?

Qx: McSpotlight has but perhaps you haven't read the website thoroughly yet.

Lang Tran: Most Americans think its a little odd to protest a large FOOD chain for killing animals but I don't think anyone would think it odd if they thought that the cause was for starving children.

Qx: If I could protest against the large FOOD chain all the way up from one-celled creatures to kelp-gulping whales to human beings for killing animals and falsely advertising that they do this for starving children then maybe I'd get committed to a state prison by Americans.

Since that has already happened (the state prison part) I'd probably feel right at home and could feel nostalgic about my twenties. McDonald's served McMeals in one corporate prison I was in. Most of us felt like starving at that point. So much for freedom of choice and those starving children on the outside.
