  7. Finally, some reason! BS litigation is overused.

    "Congress has allowed the need of big corporations before the need of our children" (a California US rep) I can't tell if this line is supposed to be a joke or what. It sounds like something straight out of Uncyclopedia.

    Make sure that you don't factor in the McDonald's litigation into this reply (I didn't even read the story. I don't care.).

    If you think that Congress would ever put the interests of children before Big Business, you have lost your mind.

    Never before in the history of our republic has the ability to buy Congress been easier. And kids don't write checks.
     
  9. I'm not sure that exploiting the legal system for money counts as "the interests of our children".

    There you go Diamond Dave. I told you my reply had nothing to do with the original story.

    Just talking Big Picture.

    How pathetic.

    I think the people that sued McDonalds for making them fat should be starved.
