whine whine whine and moan. All you hoity toity upscale yuppie types haven't noticed the one thing that ties this whole thing together. You have
food. You're eating. You put down all these people who eat at fast food joints not thinking that a 99 cent hamburger might be ALL they get that day.
But because it wasn't "green" or "organic" or whatever stupid buzzword of the day that you can look down your little elitist nose at them and
feel better about your empty little lives and your all so small contribution to humanity. In the end of it all you are made of the same components as
they and probably put out less than these masses as far as anything worthwhile to society. I might suggest that you re-examine your priorities. No one
is better or worse than anyone else regardless of what they shove down their pie hole. grow up.
For a dollar in Bolivia one can get far better and more quality food. 4,4 pounds of rice = 1 dollar, 4 pounds of potatoes=1,08, 3 pounds of tomatoes =
1 dollar. Local foods are quite cheap there, while a burger in McDonalds might cost about a dollar.
McDonalds is known for quite strong advertising, which influence people´s choices, especially the ones of less educated. Bolivia is a very poor
nation and overally the social system is very weak compared to advanced nations. They would rather need build up their country, than take advantage of
the poorer and uneducated. For people who do not know much about nutrition, McDonalds foods might seem nutritious, while they are not. The healthcare
system is weak there and people do not need additional health issues to deal with.
