Not bad. But once you get to the CEOs and Boards of Directors, you're talking a whole other animal and I'm not sure it's a moral one at all. Also, when you look at the ingredient lists of most of their products - especially McD, BoogerKing, etc., and how they advertise them as healthy (which they aren't), though the consumption may be voluntary, I'm not so sure how moral it is to play to the ignorance of the average consumer.
The people that work at Wal-mart, McDonald's and Starbucks from management to service person are moral people. They are doing their best to provide the services that consumers want, as evidenced by the consumer's voluntary purchase of their products.
But yes, I agree that anyone wearing orange is most likely just an average Joe trying to make ends meet.
I can only answer for me. I would replace "normal" with "average" because there is nothing abnormal about wanting to eat food that is raised in a healthful way. I've only been trying to be primal for a year, but I haven't eaten at a McDonald's in probably two or three decades. Just knowing that they are in large part responsible for clear cutting rainforest to torture animals for burgers kept me away.
Am I really the only one here that hangs out with "normal" people and spends time in Starbucks, and *gasp* fast food restaurants and would appreciate some general recommendations of what items are grok preferential in these establishments?
Not sure where you got the idea that hanging out at a coffee house was anti-grok. There's nothing wrong with coffee and/or cream. If hanging out there gets you to eat all manner of pastries, then it's not primal. Socializing is good; coffee is good.
