Micky D's and the Palestinians

Posted on 06/29/2013 9:41:45 AM PDT by Meadow Muffin

I called Micky D's HQ yesterday to tell them I was no longer going to buy their wonderful products. When I asked them about the refusal to build in the West Bank, they told me "The owner of the franchise said it was not in his business plan" So that is two clowns that I don't support...Micky D and the other one in the White House

There isn’t a McDonalds in New Caney either.
Why aren’t you similarly outraged?

New Cany is within driving distance of fast food...and I don’t think New Cany is a hot bed of Islamic terrorist.

Here’s a thought. Why don’t you scrounge up the cash and apply for a Franchise and build it yourself? If you are so outraged do something more meaningful than a lame one man boycott.

I wouldn’t build anything in the West bank or Gaza either.

Well, MAYBE I would built a GLATT KOSHER Restaurant INSIDE a Jewish “settlement”!

But in the general West Bank? Uh...NO.

The palis would just burn it down anyway.

So you think McD's should be forced to build restaurants in "a hot bed of Islamic terrorist"? (Singular)

Or you're just mad that the (singular) terrorist can't get a burger?

I'm not really understanding your reasoning here.

Why don’t you start a kosher deli on a Jewish settlement? Because you are afraid of Islamist bombers? Then, why are you so quick to judge others who are the same?

So, in other words, McDonalda, a private-sector corporation should not be permitted to invest its own money where it chooses, but instead expose capital to the high risk of loss to satisfy some gadfly’s sense of fairness.

I am a little confused by your post, Please clarify. Do you support a Mickey D’s in the west bank or don’t you? Your profile page says USMC. That doesn’t seem to fit with your statement.

Apparently he doesn’t mind there being no Carl’s Junior, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Wiener schnitzel, Taco Bell, Del Taco, insert name of popular franchise here, just McDonald’s.

Not just that, but the private sector corporation should apparently force its franchisee (another private entity, only much smaller and thus less likely to be able to bear risk) to open there...

Palestine already has two. The one just down the street from Mazzio’s Pizza is good.

There is a problem with Micky D in the West Bank, its called Jihad. Never a good idea to build an Icon of the enemy in a war zone.

Poor business plan. There is, by the way, a Micky-D downtown Jerusalem. So I think you are mistaking the anti Semitic thing.

Lee Harvey Oswald was a Marine. So was John Murtha. I'm missing your point.

Mazzio’s is still there? Kewl! I used to go there a lot. Now, if we can just get the rags in the ME to pronounce the word “Palestine” the right way....

(I used to live in Jacksonville)

John Murtha was a useless turd along with Oswald. Even the Green Machine turned out a few bad apples.

After re reading my original post, I can see that I was incorrect...I apologize for my stupidity...I could care less if any Palis gets a burger and upgrades to a large. I am off to get a Big Mac for lunch...
