McDonald's Sales Drop First Time In Almost A Decade!

Filed under: Business BlitzHealthFast Food


McDonald's has always been a fast food powerhouse! A titan of industry!

But their sales actually fell in October!

That's the first monthly drop in almost a decade!

Global sales at restaurants open at least a year fell 1.8% in October. The last time something like this happened was 2003.

The weakened economy, and more competition are to blame for the drop.

Though we feel it could be something else too…

Barack Obama Is STILL President Of The United States!

Filed under: PolitikBarack Obama

America has spoken and Mitt Romney has been DE-NIED!

Barack Obama will remain in the Oval Office as President of the United States of America and we couldn't be happier.

Not only is the economy slowly creeping toward recovery, but his administration has made leaps and bounds for the LGBT community over the last four years, so we can't see what kind of equality is right around the corner.

With Ohio being awarded to the POTUS at around 11:15, Barack Obama will serve another term!

Congrats, Mr. President!

Bacon Shortage An Overstatement Though Prices May Rise

Filed under: FoodHealth


Okay, so we may have slightly overreacted when we said the world would run really low on bacon soon.

There really won't be a huge shortage with people lined up outside supermarkets just for a chance to get some bacon or anything like that.

Mitt Romney Attempts To Explain Himself After Insulting 47% Of Americans

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitikBarack Obama

Mitt Romney wasn't expecting any cameras during a private fundraiser dinner in Boca Raton, Florida on May 17, so he was finally able to be honest with supporters about his views and ideas for the United States of America.

Unfortunately for the Republican Presidential candidate, there WAS a camera there and it captured footage of him insulting a little less than HALF of the population.

Not only did he generalize 47% of Americans voting for Barack Obama as a bunch of government freeloaders who don't pay income taxes because they have no motivation to succeed in life, but expressed fears of the Hispanic population ruining the nation if they support the current president!

He's been hitting the campaign trail to talk up his plans for reviving the economy and lowering unemployment rates, but has yet to give any pertinent details as to HOW he'll do so. Behind closed doors, however, Romney wasn't afraid to give an honest answer.

Even though he "can never predict what the markets will do," he states they "will be happy" if he gets elected and he'll boost the economy "without actually doing anything."

That sounds pretty easy! Why hasn't Obama considered this plan? Ha!

Since half of the country was a little put off by how he really feels about them, Romney tried to explain himself at a press conference last night (above). Before U watch that though, c-c-check out the remarks that are causing the backlash … AFTER THE JUMP!!!

McDonald's Profit Going Down Faster Than A Shamrock Shake

Filed under: Business BlitzFast FoodOlympics


Looks like McDonald's isn't invincible in this global economy either — even with their cheap (and unhealthy) food.

The company is saying that its net income fell 4% in the second quarter!

And guess what? They're blaming
