What is disgraceful in giving people what they want? What is disgraceful is too many people are so self centered that their every waking moment is spent finding ways to immediately satisfy their every desire.

What is disgraceful is that companies spend money to try and get people to eat more and more of their processed garbage so that they can make more money all the while helping to make people unhealthy. I suppose you are cool with this because it is the “free market”.

I am cool with this because I believe in personal responsibility. No one is being forced to eat unhealthy food. If people acted in a responsible manner when it came to their health it would be unprofitable to make the unhealthy slop irresponsible people love to gorge themselves on.

It’s entirely the fault of the consumers who have no self discipline or personal responsibility. Just look at Japan - they have the lowest obesity rate in the first world. It’s because they are a self disciplined people.

They need to start putting nicotine in everything.

It’s always the company’s problem, not the consumer, is that it?..it’s their job to sell burgers, it’s that fat ass, lard buckets job to say NO.

False dichotomy.
Don’t you know that companies are people too. They, too, make choices.

False dichotomy. Companies aren’t force feeding people like a foie gras goose. Consumers are voluntarily engorging themselves.
