Another Good Reason to Eat at McDonald's

(Other than, of course, the really delicious food - though, to be honest I'm a bit torn since I have lost close to 20 lbs in the last 3-4 months with a brutal work out program that I've been on; then again, if you can't what what you want is there really any point to working out?). McDonald's is opposed to the rather cynically named US "Employee Free Choice Act" that denies workers the right to secret ballots when voting for/against unionizing.

Think about that for a sec. Unions today depend on coercion to achieve their often specious demands that have little to do with reality - picket lines are meant first and foremost to keep union members in line. Unions made it illegal for employers to target organizers (which I think is a good thing), but they expect us to believe that there would be no retaliation against those who didn't vote union? Of course this comes to us, in part, courtesy of the SEIU - yes the same SEIU that's "caught up in Illinois bribe case". Because of course, only Corporations and Republicans, apparently can be corrupt?

So strike a blow against tyranny. Eat at McDonald's and revel in their scrumptious and mouth watering options (though you may want to hold the fries since those are particularly calorie laden).
