anyone who uses big macs as an example of a good thing, is not just brainwashed, but seriously malnourished. i remember when a five hour drive would take you past a hundred mom and pop restaurants, some horrible, some amazingly good. there were handmade goods and foodstuffs, like jam and honey and maple syrup, for sale at the counter. hamburgers were made by hand. now, you get one effing mcpukes every 100 kilometres(60 miles), and mom and pop are sweeping the floors for minimum wage.
"thanks, america"!? i thought you were fighting communist regimes, and yet, the total monopolization of industry by megacorporations is

before they find a way to steal it legally'.
911 was an inside job, and millions of people believe it. there. it is easy to make sweeping statements which are unsupported by any research. oh
