Hahaha. I laughed out loud at that, shaf. Don't know why.

Personally, I like an LT, but stop short of B.

I mean, I personally know LGB friends, and I'm sure that plays a big part in my support for their cause. I guess I just stop short of surgical alterations.

The thought of this racist pig in a Cabinet position....ugh. Naturally the CBC endorsed her.

Bradley Manning guilty of espionage in Wikileaks case
Bradley Manning, the US army private accused of leaking thousands of classified documents, has been found guilty of espionage but not guilty of aiding the enemy.

Pte Manning, 25, has been found guilty of 20 charges in total. He had acknowledged leaking the documents to anti-secrecy organisation Wikileaks but said he did so to spark a debate on US foreign policy.

Doubling McDonald's Salaries Would Cause Your Big Mac To Cost Just 68¢ More: Study
Doubling the salaries and benefits of all McDonald's employees -- from workers earning the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour to CEO Donald Thompson, whose 2012 compensation totaled $8.75 million -- would cause the price of a Big Mac to increase just 68 cents, from $3.99 to $4.67, University of Kansas research assistant Arnobio Morelix told HuffPost. In addition, every item on the Dollar Menu would go up by 17 cents.

I wonder what that price increase would be if they excluded c-level employees and just raised the pay for hourly restaurant employees...

While I agree with your basic premise, and would also be curious to see the results, McD's has 761K employess

a big mac shouldnt be 3.99 in the first place. a mcdouble is almost the same thing without the stupid middle bun in it, and its a dollar.

More than 75% of McDonald's locations are owned by independent franchisees. I’d be willing to bet McDonald’s counts the people working there as “employees” for promotional purposes, but they are not directly employed by the company itself, and McD’s doesn’t control what they are paid.

The Big Mac was created by Jim Delligatti, one of Ray Kroc's earliest franchisees, who was operating several restaurants in the Pittsburgh area. The Big Mac was invented in the kitchen of Delligatti's first McDonald's franchise which was located on McKnight Road in north suburban Ross Township.[2]

Sorry, asking me if I know that John Cale and JJ Cale are two different persons was a bit much.

You've got to stop questioning and insulting other people's intelligence. Dude.
