Shoot First, Ask No Important Questions Later: Part II

July 28, 2012 by Upside Downtrodden

Last week, merely hours before the Colorado movie theatre shooting, we here at Upside Downtrodden discussed the McDonald's massacre from 1984 on our Facebook page. All throughout that day, people had been getting it wrong. People were talking about gun control. Maybe there are some things we can do via regulation that help in some minor way, but that's treating the symptom. People were talking about how the shooter was a crazed gunman. Maybe there is some truth to those statements, but that neglects to get at the core issues behind why he decided to commit this massacre. People were calling the shooting itself a senseless act.

Earlier this month, a man was shot in a drive-by shooting driving his car in a McDonald’s drive thru in Daytona Beach, Florida. Prior to that, a McDonald’s manager in Jackson, Mississippi was shot by a customer claiming his order was incorrect. Talk about a “McFlurry” of shooting activity! Rather than shoot the manager, that angry customer could have just given him the “Birdie”.    Read more

Super-Sizing the Law

August 10, 2010 by Peter Funt

On the day U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker issued his landmark ruling regarding same-sex marriage in California, I found myself at a McDonald's restaurant listening to a seven year-old boy engaged in spirited debate with the guy behind the counter about which toy he'd be getting with his happy meal.    Read more
