Don't you just love it when things like this happen?
Shareholders of the world's largest fast-food chain resoundingly rejected a proposal that would have required it to issue a report outlining its role in the childhood obesity epidemic, saying customers were free to make their own dietary choices.
"Ronald McDonald is an ambassador to McDonald's and he is an ambassador for good. Ronald McDonald is going nowhere," Skinner said firmly, prompting more cheers from shareholders.

What is next? Do we start placing the blame on cartoon network and nintendo for childhood obesity too? When do you stand up and admit you are the parent and you pay for what your kids eat? If you want to say your kids eating fast food got them fat than say you paying for it and giving in every time they pitched a fit caused them to be fat. Don't get me wrong my kids get happy meals once in a while but I also make them eat other things and it is not an every week kind of thing. You have every right to make choices for your family, but you need to own those choices and the after effects.

...Obama recalled a conversation he had with another senator who was giving him grief about working for the meal ban. The other Senator questioned to Obama, “What do you expect me to just start eating at McDonalds all the time?”
Obama recalled his response, “You get paid $160,000 a year, you can even afford Applebee's, you don’t even have to stoop so low as to eat at McDonalds.”
Some in the crowd were seen raising their eyebrows as Obama, the man who touts himself from the South Side of Chicago, critiqued the popular fast food chain.
