2. McDonalds isn't forcing folks to eat their crap.

And McDonald's has other options besides burgers and fries, they have ads that promote their healthier options, and the nutritional value is posted.

I think convenience and price play a big role into why folks eat fast food.

Healthy foods, sadly, are not very cheap.

5. McDonalds salads suck. The lettuce is all purple.

Other than that, I kind of like McDonalds.

7. I think their salads are decent.

Can't really eat the rest of the food. Even their fries aren't good anymore.

8. Healthy foods are cheaper, actually.

Processed food is never cheaper.

The healthiest diet is vegan, and vegetables are way cheaper than meat. I spent too much time studying this after a very unexpected heart attack, as I have no risk factors for heart disease. Even adding fish and/or chicken, it is still cheaper.

Of course, this requires the work of learning to cook new dishes, and the labor involved. Food prepared at home is cheaper than eating out. The reward is great; it is possible with a little bit of work to get a meal that tastes better than any meal in any restaurant at any price. Seriously. And I like to go out to eat.

People eat fast food for convenience, and pay for that convenience. It ain't about the money.

6. New Poem In praise of McDonald's: Why they are awesome.

Oh! McDonalds you are fucking awesome.

Free wi-fi for all the people.
And at a high rate of speed to boot.
You never kick anyone out.
Homeless dudes sit for hours
And order just a small coffee.
You used to wouldn't put the cream in,
But now you do!

Oh! McDonalds
Teh Chicken Selects are not bad!
When I get a hot fudge Sundae,
I need to ask for extra hot fudge.
No big!

One day I was like totally dehydrated.
No money.....
Free water at MacDonalds!

McDouble - $1.00!
6 piece nuggets -sweet deal.
24-hour McDonalds -
You let homeless dudes hang out all night.
So you Rock.
