People on the left have found their next target; Ronald McDonald. That's right, the happy, redheaded clown from McDonalds. Apparently, it is time for him to go. Now, is it just the restaurant clown that needs to go? Because I am thinking that we need charitable clown to hang around. Ronald helps families have a free place to stay while their ill children are getting life saving treatments at the best medical facilities around the country. Don't we want to keep that guy?
“For nearly 50 years, Ronald McDonald has hooked kids on unhealthy foods spurring a deadly epidemic of diet-related diseases,” How exactly can Ronald McDonald be at fault, when we didn't have the obesity problems 5 decades ago that we have today?
“Ultimately the report makes the case that it’s time that McDonald’s stop directing fast food to kids. Really, Ronald deserves a break and so do we.”
“vulnerable to manipulations to marketing” and turns them on to junk food at an age when childhood obesity rates have soared" So, wait are they saying that five year olds take their own money and walk over the local McD's on their own?
“We think of Ronald McDonald as a deep-fried Joe Camel for 21st century" Really? Smoking and eating a Bic Mac are the same thing?
This is yet one more example of some organization saying that we need protection. We don't need to take responsibility mind you, because they are on the case. You see parents that are stopping through the drive thru on the way home from work will no longer do so if Ronnie just goes away, they will all of sudden have more time or more money. Simply ridiculous.
Ok, I just want people to leave me alone! If I want a Angus Burger on occassion that is my business. Where else can I buy large iced tea for buck?
What's next? Are they going to go after Barney because he is a wee bit on the tubby side?
