In his book Fast Food Nation, Schlosser explains and clarifies the dark side of Fast Food in America and the world. Schlosser starts off the book by telling the story of Carl Karcher, who bought a hot dog cart while working his own job and with the advances in automobile industry he eventually opened a Drive-In Barbeque restaurant. Schlosser explains how the economy after world war 2 helped get Carl a lot of customers. In addition, Schlosser also mentions the story of the McDonald brothers, opening the first Speedee Serive System restaurant and how other restaurants adopted the idea. Schlosser mentions advertising Fast Food for kids and how that increases customers coming in.
In this chapter, Schlosser shows a different side of the fast-food pioneer. In comparing the rise of McDonald’s with the Walt Disney Company, Schlosser is able to depict Ray Kroc as a shrewd businessman concerned primarily, if not solely, with expanding his empire. This tale serves as a backdrop for Schlosser’s real project--which is to illuminate the machination of the contemporary fast-food nation. Schlosser effectively demonstrates how fast-food companies, which offer little in terms of nutrition, manipulate young minds in an effort sell their products. These companies go so far as to portray themselves as trusted friends and prey on school systems with declining
Eric Schlosser is an author and an investigative journalist who “tries to explore subjects ignored by the mainstream media and give a voice to people at the margins of society (1).” Mr. Schlosser uses the knowledge he gained at both Princeton University and Oxford to write extraordinary books based off his hard work and investigating. In this book, Mr. Schlosser looks at the fast-food industry and the effects it has had on people 's lives. He begins with the history of McDonalds and then branches out to the history of the associated industries of fast food. Eric Schlosser points out important issues such as good nutrition, food safety, animal welfare, worker rights and sustainable agriculture. In the book, he also questions the “Americanization” of food around the world, and its associated health issues, such as obesity and heart disease.
Eric Schlosser begins by giving us an introduction on how fast food came to be, the first one obviously being McDonalds’s. He discussed how fast food has taken over American culture and revolutionized many more aspects than just food. He discusses how fast food can now be found everywhere in the world, schools, hospitals, and “every corner of the country.” The book is very fact- heavy. He uses these facts to validate his points. For example, he tells us that in 1970, Americans spent $6 billion on fast food, in 2001, $110 billion.
My rhetorical analysis is about McDonald’s corporation, this company has always been known for having the best food around. Allowing this company to be one of the world’s largest chains of hamburgers fast food restaurant serving around 68 million customers daily. My purpose of this is to provide why I think McDonald’s company and website (www.McDonalds.com) uses rhetorical strategies such as Ethos, Pathos, and Logos. However McDonald’s Corporation was established in 1955, This “Family Restaurant” for decades has been attracting many customers providing them with quality food with extremely low prices, brain-washing the customers to just focus more on service, cheap food, and speed of service. Taking over, McDonald's uses more strategies by airing commercials and sponsoring the NFL, allowing this company to use legendary NFL coach Mike Ditka to participate in one of their website videos (New Team).
Ells took this idea from a local taco shop that he observed after he graduated from culinary school. This quick, fast Mexican idea proved to be profitable for Ells. However, in the long run the company must have taken some shortcuts from where they were getting their meat originally. I believe it became harder and harder to get a supply of poultry and beef not receiving antibiotics or hormones. This led to a new distributor that could have possibly sold them products under a false pretense.
Throughout American history, propaganda pieces have been used to sway the public opinion on one matter or another. The famous Federalist Papers were used to sway the early American public to ratify the Constitution. The Civil War also heavily relied on propaganda to recruit soldiers and boost morale. At the turn of the 20th century, Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle was written as a propaganda piece on socialism, however, it was remembered for its cometary on the ethics of the meat packing industry. Although its goal of turning America into a socialist society was forgotten, it served as one of the most efficient propaganda pieces on the meat packing industry.
It was because of this Act the Food and Drug Administration was created. However, before the Food and Drug Act of 1906 was passed, there was no such thing as regulating how food was produced. While doctors and majority of the public wished for food regulations many corporations as well as the National Association of State Dairy and Food opposed food safety due to the fact that it would ruin business for them. It wasn’t until numerous of people finally spoke out about the horrendous secrets of food production that congress finally took action. Some of many who helped speak out against the food processing business were the Muckrakers.
In the short article “Don’t Blame the Eater” written by David Zinczenko, former editor in chief of Men 's health magazine. Zinczenko from the begin of his article had established sense of emotional appeal toward overweight individual; in particular children. This evident when Zinczenko quoted Jay Leno (popular tv host) making a joke comparing irresponsible driver to common youth fast food patrons. Zinczenko defense them by stating “I tend to sympathize with these portly fast-food patrons. [m]aybe that’s because [he] us to be one of them”(Zinczenko 241).

Truett Cathy the founder of the family own business and he had a great impact on the business while he was alive. His family owned one of the most profound and well known fast food chicken stores in the world, Chick-fil-A. T. Cathy would have to be one of the most interesting business managers that I have ever done an autobiography on. The reason being is because of the book “Eat More Chicken “and because of the research I have done on him. T. Cathy was born on March 14, 1921 in Eatonton, Georgia.
His family decided to to move again from Fort Wayne and he refused to leave, drop out of school in the 10th grade and started working full time.

The City of Chicago ruled that they should be able to instate their own laws about gun ownership (“Otis McDonald...Second Amendment”), but McDonald took the case to the Supreme Court . After a long trial, the Supreme Court ruled in split 5-4 in favor of McDonald. They stated that since Otis McDonald was an American Citizen, it gave him the right to possess a handgun, with the City unable to interfere with his 2nd amendment rights ( * ). The victory also vanquished Chicago’s handgun ban, which was a huge victory for fighters of 2nd Amendment rights. The repealing of the ban in Chicago led other Major Cities to take away the ban.
If one is to look deeply at the 2017 Budweiser commercial, it is clear that the company values immigration and those who wish to better themselves like Adolphus Busch. The commercial essentially depicts and immigrants journey to America and the set backs he faced. Ironically, now this once foreign man is now the creator of one of the most iconic American products. Amidst Trumps immigration band and a large amount of negative press, Anheuser-Busch is reminding the American people that at one point in time we were all immigrants. Ultimately, the 2017 Budweiser commercial represents Anheuser-Busch marketing towards the beliefs and values of the American
Jackson’s election as president marked an end to the wealthy politician’s steak. People viewed Jackson as the representation of the up-and-coming middle and working class of America. Therefore, Jackson embraced the role of protecting the “common men”.
