We Love to See You Smile, McAmerica Maria Minnick The Golden arches. (Can I do this??) For almost all Americans, automatically what comes  to mind when hearing these words is the infamous fast-food restaurant, McDonalds. In shopping  centers, hospitals, television, high schools, college campuses, and in any large city another  McDonalds is waiting. Georgia Ritzer explains in his book  The McDonaldization of Socitety  that,  “McDonald’s has achieved its exalted position because virtually all Americans, and many others,  have passed through its golden arches on innumerable occasions. Furthermore, most of us have  been bombarded by commercials extolling McDonald’s virtues, commercials that are tailored to  different audiences” (Ritzer pg.4). McDonalds is a part of almost all aspects of and American’s  daily life. It has virtually become a part of our identity. Through its tactical and stout advertising,   McDonalds is successful in appealing to all types of Americans and has succeeded in efforts to   continually allure Americans along every stage of their lives. McDonald’s influence on Americans begins at the earliest stage of childhood
