by Jeremy Hooper

And now for another edition of:

Here now, the McStats:

And here is where today stands, as of 12:17PM:

Picture 7-124

::sniff, sniff:: ::sniff, sniff:: I smell either the strong stench of failure, or an increased production of french fries that's wafting over from my nearby McDonald's. Eh, well -- six of one, half a dozen of the other.

Your thoughts

What I find so hilarious and I'm sure that this has been mentioned in previous posts is that these people, who are boycotting McDonalds, say they will go to Burger King to spend their money. What they don't seem to know is that Burger King supports the NGLCC as well. These people, I swear.

Well Sam, corporate America is completely abandoning them. Their options are getting fewer and fewer. So for these purposes, I think they are working the "McDonald's = bad" line and hoping folks won;t ask too many questions.

Funny how closely the AFA tracked Ford's financial position and claimed to be the cause of the falling share prices - yet I don't hear a peep about the McDonald's situation from them. Jeremy, you are mean to point this out. I think you might hurt their feewings. :-)

Got to love this. AFA boycotts McDonald's, and than McDonald's stock increases. We don't need stimulus checks to upstart the economy, we just need the afa to boycott companies!

NOPE, not quite HIGH enough! It closed at $62.33. .....Way better than my others ones did I should have bought when they announced the boycott!

They have FEELINGS?

Maybe we should go long call options on the next company that the AFA boycotts? Could be a lucrative new trading system with limited downside!

Now that's an investment strategy!

Still gettin' iced coffees from McDonald's...

Big deal. We all know how you gays stick together in these things. With megabucks men like Tim Gill working behind the scenes to support anything pro-gay with his money, who's to say these stock figures accurately report how the normal American public feels?
Multitudes of McDonald's owners located where those grassroots sign-waving pickets are occurring (that you detest) ARE complaining to Corporate about the disgusting manuever by Richard Ellis to insert his personal perversion into mainstream family-friendly business. He's gotta go!
May the boycott go on!

LOL! "Beef", are you seriously suggesting that moneyed gays like Tim Gill are deliberately upping the stock of a multi-billion dollar corporation?! On a daily basis?!
