    Bolivia just made a new fan.
    I must find that doco.

  2. BankingThiefs says:

    They pulled out of Iceland in 2009 because they couldn’t keep up with the currency inflation, it’s probably the same thing with Bolivia too.

    I like McDonalds, they listened to customer criticism, and changed their ways. Not many corporations do this.

    A win for the little guy against Patent Trolls. ;D

    “The court has said that laws of nature, natural phenomena and abstract ideas are not patentable. We hold that a naturally occurring DNA segment is a product of nature and not patent eligible merely because it has been isolated”

    McDonald’s—leader is serving GM foods.

    Bolivian people—making a great choice to reject this good tasting form of poison.

  5. Joe A says:

    McD became very populair in Bolivia -as everywhere else- with newly established middle classes: it was hip to be seen at McD.
    Then novelty wore off. When you have a strong stomach, you can get a better tasting burger at one of the street kiosks. Or a ‘Chillaron de Pollo’ at the market. Or a 3 AM BBQ-ed pieces of cow’s heart outside discotheque Forum, El Gigante -if that place still exists. Yummy.

  6. Palantír says:

    This is how a government working FOR its citizens functions. Bravo!

    Recycle your money back into the local kiosk or resturant and grow wealthy together, giving it to a multi-national mega corporation and you depletes your local wealth over time.

  7. aleksy says:

    I would rather live on a dung heap alone than accept the GMO poison scraps from McDonald’s.

  8. snoop diddy says:

    watch the IQ of Bolivia go up.

  9. Robespierre says:

    Still 3 McDonalds left in Greece. Fuckin Greeks.

  10. Kevin Eshbach says:

    McDonald’s marketing department has met their Waterloo.

  11. Jayme says:

    Not enough. The life sucking corporate model hasn’t changed.
