If I get a coronary from eating McDonald's and whatever else I want to eat that everyone knows isn't good for me, then I have legal right to sue? Oh, I don't? Now that's a big relief!
But if McDonald's fails to make their food less damaging to our health by some promised date, we suddenly have the right to slap them on the hands? I'm sorry, it's not like someone at McDonald's is intentionally making America fat, Americans are making themselves fat. It has become increasingly easy to know what is healthy and what isn't. The truth is out there.
There is no point in smacking the billion dollar corporation of McDonald's with bad publicity just because they promised less fattening french fries and didn't deliver. They've done a TON of other things to make up for it. No America, you can't have your fries and not get heart attacks, I don't care if the oil is supposed to be better it will still kill you.
Most people won't keep their promises in the face of adversity and some Californian melonhead that thinks he can be the Promise Police won't either! Now I'm not saying McDonald's did their part in informing everyone that they broke their promise, but fried food is fried food, it's JUST NOT GOOD FOR YOU. Dumb people. Dumb.
