No point in boycotting American franchise owners over something done by Egyptian franchise owners.

I don't expect that the Americans had a say in it, and if this helps the Egyptian owners then Egyptians are even dumber than I thought.

LOL!!----"Best of the Lot!"

Oh, I HOPE the "Corporate Weenies" @ McDonalds have enough sense to "Hold the Line!!"

There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY they can retain an American Clientelle if they capitulate to representatives of the culture which celebrated the murder of our fellow Citizens!

The Spineless Corporate Neuters who attempt to "Prostitute" an American Institution to the Culture which generated the amoral Murderers of Americans would be seen as "enablers" of said culture.

Absent a STRONG, UNEQUIVOCAL affirmation of it's American Values, "MacDonalds" is worthless "Post-9/11" Corporate debris!!
