Mcdonald's is an easy target because you are too lazy to do any proper research

The fact that you are comparing Mcdonald's - a fast food chain - with the 'fall' of the Stalinists, Nazis, Romans, Greeks, Ottoman, Egyptians, and East Timor is not only disturbing, but ridiculous. It also might come as a surprise to you to learn that we are now living in a CAPITALIST society where big business isn't oppressed and individuals have the freedom to make a fortune if they work hard enough. Mcdonald's, like IBM and Fairfax, is an example of a modern success story. They do a hell of a lot more good for the community through charity work, employment, and environemntal awareness than KFC, Pizza Hut, or Burger King put together. But obviously, Mcdonald's is an easy target because you are too lazy to do any proper research, and McDonald's is the tallest poppy to cut down.

Also, do you realise how contradictory it is to list Communist Russia as an example of the destruction of evil regimes, when your very stance against corporations is Marxist in its foundation?? You socialists make me want to puke. Instead of sitting on your ass bitching about nothing all day, why don't you go out and get a job. It might help calm your raging paranoia and bitter foolishness.
