: I may be alone in this, but I McSpotLight is way too critical of McDonald's. Sure, they are a major corporation making money. So what? THAT'S WHAT BUSINESSES ARE FOR--TO MAKE MONEY!

On that basis alone, there's nothing wrong with child pornography...except we expect more from businesses than just making money, right? Of course we do: social responsibility, for one thing.

: Yes, some of their food is not healthy. What does McSpotLight do? THEY START A HUGE PROTEST!! How stupid is that? Can't they find something better to protest like alcohol, drugs, or abortion??? No, they have to attack a food chain. Yeah, that makes sense.

Yes, it makes sense, since this food chain preys on children and claims its food is healthy. How would you protest alcohol or drugs, eh? Tell people not to use them, or simply insist people not be lied to about the harmful effects? As for abortion, that's no one's damn business but the pregnant woman's.

: McSpotLight tries to say that McDonald's advertisements appeal to children. Well what do you expect them to do? Put advertisements in nursing homes? No, they want to sell happy meals, so they target children. That's just logical marketing. There's nothing too life-threatening about that.

So you don't find anything wrong with enticing children to eat junk food? Sounds like you only care about children until they're born.

: I just want people to realize that McDonald's is a business. And just like any other business, they have their weaknesses, but starting a giant campaign against a food chain is not the most logical thing in the world.

When the food chain harms the world environment and animals, it's very logical to protest against it.

: McSpotLight supporters are narrow-minded people who have nothing better to do than single out a food chain (instead of drugs or abortion) and start endless protests against it. Why not do something that actually matters????

Talk about narrow-minded -- you're stuck on drugs and abortion. Instead of making ignorant assumptions about the motives of the people here, debate the issues - if you can.

: If anyone shares my views, please speak out and make people realize what a bunch of crap this all is.

I'm sure you'll find plenty of idiots to keep you company.
