It's right next to Subway at the East mall entrance between Nordstrom and JC Penney.

I wonder if running BART to the mall is bringing more money or more crime.

I think I know what you're getting at, Steve. When at the Mall, I'm seeming more minorities if you know what I mean. Probably spending there entitlement check's.

This is not about BART bringing bad elements into Pleasanton. It's about the addictiveness of McDonald's french fries and how this addiction leads some to a life of crime to support it.

The robbers were reportedly mad at McDonalds for caving in to Moochelle Obami's demands to shrink their portions and to sell apples instead of fries. She's an expert on obesity, you know....

Michelle is an expert on obesity? What about her fat a**?

I love how she is preaching this stuff and she has been caught multiple times sneaking out for a cheeseburger and fries. If she craves them, why doesn't she just have the White House staff prepare them? It's almost like she wants to be found out as a hypocrite. Does she have obsessive/compulsive disorder?

Why is this board so full of racist liberals who think a comment about crime is about people of color, and especially people of African decent?

I didn't mean that in my original post. I just mean that it's probably much easier for people from higher crime areas to get to Stoneridge since BART is right there. Isn't it logical, and not racist at all, to assume that more crime would be transported directly to the mall??

Is any liberal open to reason anymore? Or do you all believe that criminal=non-white person?

Michelle Obama is a beautiful woman. If she succumbs to the temptation to eat a hamburger once in a while, it doesn't bother me a bit.

What? Do the retards on this thread think she _shouldn't_ attempt to influence kids and their parents to eat a more nuitritious diet? What is your problem?

Oh, I see, you just like to vent your racism with poorly veiled attempts to link her name with four-legged animals and draw attention to her body parts as if she were for sale at an auction.

Obviously, the kkk and its racist mentality lives in Pleasanton.

Sunshine Martha,

I agree that this thread is filled with comments from people that don't belong in polite society, but you have to admit that Michelle is not in the best shape. I would have hoped that she would lose some weight herself and get in shape before telling us how to eat right.

If someone tells me that I should dress better, they had better be well dressed themselves.
