Goddamned busybody people. Look, if you don’t want your kid to have a Happy-Meal, then don’t buy him one. How f-ing hard is that? I think that this entire push towards stopping marketing to kids is because parents are sick of their kids bugging and begging for things they saw on TV, and can’t say no. If you are a shitty parent, don’t come crying to me, and don’t go around trying to prevent a private enterprise from doing something that is completely legal and entirely ethical (unless it is marketing to kids, period, that bothers you. Are you going after Mattel next?) just because you don’t like it. When are you going to learn that just because you don’t like something does not give you the right to say it can’t be done? http://www.businessweek.com/news/2010-12-15/mcdonald-s-happy-meal-toys-assailed-in-lawsuit.html
And they call us “cons” the fascists, when they would love nothing more than to give the government a say in everything that every business does. I can’t think of a more clear definition of a fascist at the moment – can you?
