    You either support freedom and liberty, or you don't.

    The point is, the parents make the choices for their children, not the state. How can you say they have failed, when the state takes it upon themselves to make those choices in the first place?

    FREEDOM... Look it up.

    If people were responsible enough not to become obese, they would have this 'freedom' you speak of, however they aren't this responsible.

    If you want to participate in this for a laugh. Is it the individuals at fault or the fast food places?

    Are hamburgers legal?
    A - Yes.

    Are toys legal?
    A - Yes.

    As long as they sell food that is legal for children to consume, and toys that are legal for children to possess, the government has absolutely no right to prevent them from selling those products.

    FREEDOM... Look it up.

    How else can we ensure that people don't make the wrong decision?

    I don't need to look up freedom. I've been confronted with its horrible visage, and declined to grant it my affections.

    Lets say I become a parent.

    Why should I have to pay for some fat ****s mistake? If I wanna get my kid a happy meal now and then, why can't I?

    I know it sounds harsh but, for **** sake.

    Why have they not banned any other childrens meals at ANY OTHER LOCATION.

    We have a kids pack at work... hardly anyone gets it, maybe they should ban that too...

    Who's business is it of yours to make that decision for others?

    You don't!

    Freedom is about people, families, making their own decisions about their lives. As long as toys and hamburgers are legal, McDonalds has the right to sell them, PERIOD.

    What people choose for their families to wear, learn, worship, participate in, and yes, even eat, is completely up to them.
