http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/03/10/1369950/-McDon...-wage

The 14th Amendment, a United States anti slavery amendment, guarantees all persons equal protection under the law. McDonald's argues that corporations are legally people and therefore need not give a raise to workers.

When Richard Nixon was US president, Ray Kroc, McDonald's founder, gave him 1 million dollars in exchange for Nixon's exempting fast food chains from minimum wage. Nixon did so, but was overridden by Congress. http://aflcio.org

Both Prince Charles and his father Prince Philip have made public statements, the former
that McDonald's should be shut down, the latter that McDonald's was destroying the rainforest.

Unconstitutional court gag orders which violate the 1st amendment prevent the public
from knowing the results of the tens of thousands? of lawsuits against McDonald's
for food poisoning and many other situations.

National Public Radio was the recipient of 200 million dollars from Joan Kroc, Ray Kroc's
widow. Unfortunately several times a week the NPR staff work in product placement
ads for the chain. Marketplace, Morning Edition, All Things Considered etc. How can there
be unbiased coverage of news when such a financial incentive to promote a company is
involved?

Animal flesh is an addiction
The trioxypurine or uric acid or preurine in animal muscle cells is more addictive than
