Some things have moved past stupid to the point of being absurd.  Since when was working at
McDonalds a job you worked at to support your family?  Sure, it might be a job you took when times were tough, or right when you were entering the job market when you were oh - 16 years old?  And unless you planned on staying and moving up into management and beyond, it's never been a job that pays a "living wage".  Apparently there are many out there that think if you work 40 hours a week, you should be comfortable financially, regardless of what you work at - for those 40 hours.  I am practically at a loss for words.

I don't really blame the folks that are protesting.  I respect anyone who works.  Period.  I blame the community activist types behind it, who are telling these people they deserve more.  Sure they deserve more - but they have to move on and work toward "more".  Unfortunately these days everybody gets a trophy and "do you want fries with that" is supposed to get you the American dream.
