World Childrens Day: McDonalds, Cheesburgers And Charity

*NSYNC star is coming under fire for participating in the McDonald’s backed World Children’s Day as many critics complain the food giant has been one of the chief offenders in the global rise of childhood obesity. William MacDougall writes, “More people now recognize the Golden Arches than they do the Christian Cross. American kids are more likely to recognize Ronald McDonald than they are Santa Claus. Throw into this mix, add a frisson of compassionate consumption and you have the stuff of PR dreams.”

    Yeah, he’s (the writer) a f**kin’ genius. Guess what, the parents can choose whether or not to spend the money on the food for the children. I know when I was a kid I didn’t have the opportunity to go and buy that stuff myself. This guy is an idiot.

    “McDonald’s is one of the chief offenders in the global rise of childhood obesity.” Excuse me but did these children get in the cars and drive themselves to McDonald’s and order and pay for their food and drive back home???? Did McDonald’s actually send out limos or other cars to pick up these children and drive them to McDonald’s and force-feed them. OR MAYBE did the PARENTS take their OWN kids and probably friends of their kids to McDonald’s and order and pay for the food. And did these kids willingly eat the food PURCHASED BY THE ADULTS (who were obviously held at gunpoint), and then go out into the play area so that the parents could have them “out of their hair” for awhile and not have to bother with them????? “More people now recognize the golden Arches than they do the Christian Cross” — uh, who’s fault is that????? At what point in the history of McDonald’s did they become the babysitters of the world????? “American kids are more likely to recognize Ronald McDonald than they are Santa Claus”. Mr. William MacDougall, you need to stop smoking whatever it is you are smoking and raise your mind out of ignorance and stupidity to the level of SOME KIND OF INTELLIGENCE AND REALIZATION. IDIOT!!!!! By the way, before you open your big mouth again, go visit a few Ronald McDonald houses.
