      No one is forcing you or anyone else to eat at McDonald's. And FYI, the only reason any child in the world eats at McDonald's is because their PARENTS take them to McDonald's. When was the last time you saw a kid at McDonald's by himself ordering a meal?

      Well, as you can see the big epidemic, everyone is fat. You are what you eat. If you eat mcdonalds. Your fake, easy, greasy, fat.. How hard is it to put in a healthy place. Panera is a good start.

      McDonald's has been such a popular food chain, even with it's unhealthy food warnings and extra fat and fake meat. Well, I say we need to stand up to this. Stop letting them poison us!

      McDonald is unhealthy and gross.

      So this is to get rid of McDonald's? Your description is a little unclear, but I'm assuming that that is what it means.
