    McDonald's in their latest movie promotion has fucked up badly. Seems that they contracted with China to get their souveneir glasses, and China put cadmium in the paint, which can be directly absorbed by the body.

    It causes kidney failure, cancer, as well as a whole bunch of other health problems......

    How many times does this have to happen before we wake up. I do not like Glenn Beck, but instead of crowing about how many advertisers he has lost, we show companies like Mcdonald's that they should not be doing business with these a-holes. Throw some work to some American firm.

    Here comes the obligatory, " But the progressive agenda causes big business to look elsewhere." BS, Mcdonald's could take a .0001 hit to their profit margin and have the glasses made in the USA.

    Mikey D's has been contracting out with China ever since Bush Jr.

    Seems that if they do it that way, their CEO's can afford to keep a mistress in the style she's accustomed to, if they had to do it here in the US, they wouldn't have a mistress, just a cheap whore on a retainer.

    You can't cut into their bottom lines, corporations have the best interests of the American people at heart!

    /sarcasm.

    Careful, careful, we're starting to stereotype here. I men don't point out that these goods are chinese.
