Are you really expecting us to believe your word (someone who was only "exposed to"... 13 years) over the Real Ronald! who do you think you are trying to kid Chris? The person you are so synically calling "your" Ronald has actually worked and been trained for that role, have you? Not only that, what he says about exploitation of McD makes sense and has now been proven true in the recent McLibel case.
I don't know why you defend McD but at least don't try to convince us there is nothing in it for you and you are impartial.
:My amazement is that this corporation could naively entrust the "care" of a BILLION DOLLAR trademark to someone ...
Oooops, you dropped your mask! You just showed that all that talk about Ronald caring for sick children, wanting to do good in the community etc etc etc is just nonsense. What Ronald is really about is making huge profits for McD and the only thing he really "cares" about is the "BILLION DOLLAR" trademark.
: Even someone who is anti-McD should applaud the "live" Ronald appearances as a good thing.
Exactly what qualities of Ronald should we applauding as parents? Brainwashing our children into thinking unhealthy food is good for them? Or encouraging children to pester their parents? Or perhaps we should be thankful that he spreads commercialism and ram it down our childrens' throut, or maybe all of the above.
Come on, stop insulting our intelligence. You are not Ronald and we are not your "little fries"
:I have attempted to send this message as well to Mr. Giulliano without success, since his email address has not been listed at this site. I did send it to .bob. at McInfonet replying that I had no credible position from which to speak -- even though I worked with over 100 Ronalds and never experienced a bitter report like Mr. Guillianno's. Well, reader, you be the judge.
OK then, as someone who has worked for McD (not as a Ronald though, thankfully) and someone who has read the court transcripts and McD's big guns' admission, I tell you what Mr. Guillianno says sound true and authorititive. And I don't think why McSpotlight should give you his e-mail if he does not wany you to have it. I would certainly criticise this site if they gave my e-mail address to anyone against my wishes.
: I responded because the anti-Ronald interview...
Hold on a sec. Before being anti-Ronald, the interview was honest and stated some facts which are certainly consistent with McD policies. Now if the the truth hurts the McD lovers just because it happens to be anti-Ronald then so be it.
