McDonald's Supports Parental Choice

Today's "opinion journalism," which is a contradiction, has eroded the public's trust in networks and newspapers, as reflected in declining ratings and circulation. People today tune in to programming that only reinforces what they already believe.

re: lawyer Li Fangping said. "The crimes he was accused of were nothing more than what regular citizens would do to defend their rights."

The Chinese government is much like the USA government - neither believes individuals have rights.

re: McConnell said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." "There are many members of my conference who have said, 'I don't want the president to make all the decisions about how the funds are spent that might be allocated in my state.'"

The problem occurs because this procedure is the opposite of our governmental design.
States are supposed to allocate funds to the Congress, NOT Congress allocating funds to States.

Keep fighting the good fight, sir.
Some people still do not understand that “free” is a false concept.
(I blame General Mills)

"Fascist ethics begin ... with the acknowledgment that it is not the individual who confers a meaning upon society, but it is, instead, the existence of a human society which determines the human character of the individual. According to Fascism, a true, a great spiritual life cannot take place unless the State has risen to a position of pre-eminence in the world of man. The curtailment of liberty thus becomes justified at once, and this need of rising the State to its rightful position."  
 -- Mario Palmieri, The Philosophy of Fascism, 1936

"We ask that government undertake the obligation above all of providing citizens with adequate opportunity for employment and earning a living. The activities of the individual must not be allowed to clash with the interests of the community, but must take place within the confines and be for the good of all. Therefore, we demand: ... an end to the power of financial interest. We demand profit sharing in big business. We demand a broad extension of care for the aged. We demand ... the greatest possible consideration of small business in the purchases of the national, state, and municipal governments. In order to make possible to every capable and industrious [citizen] the attainment of higher education and thus the achievement of a post of leadership, the government must provide an all-around enlargement of our system of public education.... We demand the education at government expense of gifted children of poor parents.... The government must undertake the improvement of public health -- by protecting mother and child, by prohibiting child labor -- by the greatest possible support for all groups concerned with the physical education of youth. [W]e combat the ... materialistic spirit within and without us, and are convinced that a permanent recovery of our people can only proceed from within on the foundation of The Common Good Before the Individual Good."

"The strength and power of despotism consists wholly in the fear of resistance."

"We are extremely disappointed with today's decision. It's not what our customers want, nor is it something they asked for. Public opinion continues to be overwhelmingly against this misguided legislation. Parents tell us it's their right and responsibility — not the government's — to make their own decisions and to choose what's right for their children." -- McDonald's spokeswoman Danya Proud
