back next McDonald's © 1991 Tom Ferguson I thought I was exaggerating to make a point. Then I saw Michael Moore's
movie Sicko. It was disturbing to me to see "elderly" people working McDonalds, out of necessity I assume, the ol' pension
just not doing the job. And of course the military doesn't hold bake
sales when they need a new aircraft carrier. As the cold war
ended around this time the congress actually passed legislation
forbidding the transfer of military funding to non-military projects.
