    Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world. It's not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers. These restaurant workers migrate from countries where, prior to kneading tortilla dough, post-toilet...

    After McDonald's Corp. announced all-day breakfasts three years ago, it gradually forgot about mornings. Overall sales have weakened in the U.S., market share has shrunk, and McDonald's has identified lost breakfast customers as the main culprit. Now the world's biggest restaurant company plans to fight back with discounts, breakfast catering and a ploy lifted straight from a 1997 "Seinfeld" episode -- selling only the tops of muffins. "We took our eye off the ball on breakfast," Chief Financial Officer Kevin Ozan said at a May investor conference. "With everything else going on, we just lost a little focus on that...

    President Trump would like to see McDonald's come to North Korea. A source told Axios that Trump is in favor of well-known American staples coming to North Korea, including McDonald's, as he seeks to have the rogue nation open up to the world. Such cooperation hinges on a historic meeting Trump has planned for Tuesday in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un about denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. While Trump has fast food friendship on his mind, the feeling may be mutual in North Korea...

    As McDonald's seeks to modernize its business, the company is placing a big bet on mobile and other tech platforms. McDonald's has been systematically adding self-service ordering kiosks and table service to stores as it works to "build a better McDonald's." "What we're finding is when people dwell more, they select more," CEO Steve Easterbrook told CNBC on "Squawk on the Street" on Monday. "There's a little bit of an average check boost."

    It is little more than a footnote in the back-and-forth over the planned North Korea summit — but the rumor of a McDonald’s in Pyongyang is juicier than a three-patty Big Mac. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may allow a “Western hamburger franchise” into the country as a show of goodwill to the United States, according to an intelligence report described by U.S. officials to NBC. That follows remarks by South Korean adviser Chung-in Moon in late April, who said that North Korea might be interested in welcoming a McDonald’s as tensions ease. Compared to the threat of nuclear...

    Two South Florida McDonald's customers think the fast-food giant is being awfully cheesy with how it charges customers for a signature item that has been on its menu since 1975. According to a class-action lawsuit filed in Fort Lauderdale federal court on May 8, Cynthia Kissner, of Broward County, and Leonard Werner, of Miami-Dade, say they have had to pay for cheese they don't want on their Quarter Pounder sandwiches. The suit asks for at least $5 million. It comes down to this: On the menu, a hamburger at Micky D's is cheaper than a cheeseburger. According to the lawsuit,...

    A Fond du Lac man who holds the world record for "Most Big Macs Consumed" ate his 30,000th Big Mac on Friday. Don Gorske said he ate his first Big Mac on May 17, 1972, and has enjoyed, on average, two of the sandwiches nearly every day since. “I take that first bite, it was the best thing I had ever tasted in my life,” reads a pamphlet from Gorske that chronicles his hamburger habit. An entry titled “Summer of 1972” reads, “When I’m not at work, or going to McDonalds [sic], I’m at County Stadium, eating a Big Mac...

    CHICAGO – A Chicago teenager named Tyshaun Granger was reportedly fired from his job at McDonalds for allegedly placing his “mixtape” in children’s Happy Meal’s, rather than the usual toy. Tyshaun apparently included his rap mixtape in the happy meals within a paper disc holder. On the mixtapes was printed the title of the project; “Tales Of A Real N*gga” was printed on the discs with a sharpie marker. “I bought my son a happy meal and inside came a mysterious cd” says Sarah Platt, “I, like any other parent, would assume the cd was for children.

    An incorrect breakfast sandwich order at a Wisconsin McDonald's caused a woman to throw a temper tantrum and push an employee to the ground. The woman had ordered a bacon sandwich at the drive-thru but instead was given sausage. After getting the wrong sandwich she threw the bag at the employee through the window. What the (expletive) is this? I didn't order no sausage biscuit', she said. The situation appeared to be rectified when the manager apologized and corrected her order. But several moments later she came inside and cut the line cussing at employees and accusing them of not...

    International Women’s Day is a global celebration in more than 100 countries today, but many Americans may have only a vague awareness of the holiday. This might soon change, if grassroots organizers (including the group behind this January’s Women’s March on Washington) succeed in their efforts to convince women around the world to join in a “day of action,” including a labor strike, this March 8. As International Women’s Day approaches, take a look back at its origins in the United States more than a century ago, and how far it has come since then. Controversy clouds the history of...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – It’s not a bizarre prank, and it’s not a mistake, some McDonald’s locations are reportedly flipping their golden arches upside down to make an unprecedented statement. Business Insider reports that McDonald’s is turning their arches upside-down in “celebration of women everywhere” to celebrate International Women’s Day. Photos from Lynwood, California already show one McDonald’s restaurant with their “M” turned into a “W.”

    MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. – A video stirring anger on Facebook shows police in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina asking a homeless man to leave a McDonald’s after another patron bought him a meal Wednesday morning, according to WMBF. Police also escorted the customer filming the incident, Yossi Gallo, from the restaurant. Gallo can be heard telling the officer that he met the man outside the restaurant and invited him in. According to Myrtle Beach police, the officer was responding to a call made by a McDonald’s employee requesting a trespass warning for a panhandler in the restaurant parking lot.

    Cause and effect. Those are the words on the minds, in some form, for many individuals today, particularly parents regardless of the age of their children. Cause and effect. How often, though, do we, and that includes me, how often do we become overwhelmed by the effect and miss the cause? Or, worse, fixate on the wrong cause as we go for the quick fix, the easier solution, the bandage we expected from our parents to cover the boo-boo and make it all better, whatever it was. McDonald's is eliminating the cheese burger and chocolate milk from its Happy Meal....

    Another big one that got away: like many before him, yesterday’s killer was “known to the FBI.” Last fall, a Mississippi bail bondsman and frequent YouTube vlogger noticed an alarming comment left on one of his videos. "I'm going to be a professional school shooter," said a user named Nikolas Cruz. The YouTuber, 36-year-old Ben Bennight, alerted the FBI, emailing a screenshot of the comment to the bureau's tips account… Agents with the bureau's Mississippi field office got back to him "immediately," Bennight said, and conducted an in-person interview the following day, on Sept. 25. – BuzzFeed I can...

    A chemical found in McDonald’s chips could cure baldness, new research suggests. Scientists in Japan found that a chemical used to cook the fast food giant's fries helped to cure hair loss in mice and are hopeful it could do the same in humans. Using a chemical called dimethylpolysiloxane found in silicone which is added to oil to cook fries researchers were able to produce follicles which could sprout human hair. Silcone is usually added to fries to prevent the oil bubbling and spitting. When the cells were cultured in the cooking aid they grew 5000 hair follicle germs simultaneously,...

    Al Sharpton hit President Donald Trump for his weight during comments marking Martin Luther King Jr., Day in Harlem, quipping he should order three Big Macs instead of two. According to New York Times writer Shane Goldmacher, Sharpton complimented New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D.) as a "national celebrity" and, perhaps alluding to potential White House ambitions, said Trump should "get your best gloves out" before making the joke about Trump's fondness for fast food. It's a noteworthy comment from Sharpton, given his former obesity. The now slimmed down-Sharpton once weighed more than 300 pounds. In 2014, the New York...
