I also stumbled across this page while looking for something totaly different. All I can say that it is interesting.
It seems a lot of time and energy has been expended in an effort to destroy/discredit McD's. While getting the truth out is a nobel, good, and worhtwhile thing to do, I don't think most people care. When someone goes to McD's they are aware that they are consuming unhealthy food derived from animals, but they go there because they like the food. It is their choice and they choose McD's, millions of people(adults) choose it every day for lunch(when children are at school getting served a different kind of crap :). They choose it because it is fast, cheap, and tasty. So if you really want to do something, offer an alternative to McD' that does not violate any of your principles and that people will choose over McD's. This seems to be the only way to beat McD's in free-enterprise economy where people have the freedom of choice. As long as millions upon millions of people eat at McD's everyday they will be POWERFUL, and have the ability to do as they please.
