I stopped and got a cup of coffee this morning and.....I guess I have never paid any attention to the saying on the side.

WTF??? Is wrong with people??

This cup has printed on the side,

Is this new or have they been doing this a while, and I am too stupid to notice it?

In a free society, why would you oppose anyone's free choice to live their life in the way they see fit, as long as it doesn't infringe on your rights to do the same?

..and if you do try to oppose their rights to live their right to live their life their way, it isn't making you look wrong, you ARE wrong. For hell's sake, that writing on the cup isn't turning you gay, is it?

Mud is a step up from the bitter Starbucks brew.

I've read the crazy things on the side of the cups. Those passages either make no sense, or are downright scary.

When I go out for coffee, the only thing I want to have to think about is "cream or sugar." I don't want to be confronted by lame ass musings all over my cup.

When I caught an early flight this week and got breakfast at the airport, I just hit a little bagel place. Got my plain coffee cup and bagel in less than 2 minutes. The Starbucks line was about 20 people long. Average wait: 5-10 minutes.

You are not representing the situation correctly.

The problem isn't a bunch of homos boning each other in the dignified privacy of their own homes.

The problem is that our society has been totally overrun by liberal insanity, of which this cup is a SMUG, PRECIOUS LITTLE symbol.

Next time you hear about some transvestite school teacher suing the school district because he wants to teach kindergarten in drag or some evil violent rapist being let out of jail because he's been "rehabilitated", remeber that these things are being celebrated as victories by the exact same people that starbucks is pandering to with that poem.

You "nice" people just don't get it. There's a war on, and YOU are the enemy of the liberals. Anyone who has a rational, decent thought in their head is the source of evil according to Hillary and Co.

Think they will put a Christian poem on the cups? NEVER HAPPEN. Just why do you think that is?

Keep being "nice", pal.

Isn't Godwin's Law handy? Case's Corollary and Sircar's Corollary apply here also.


en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin's_law

Godwin's law (also Godwin's rule of Nazi analogies) is an adage in Internet culture that was originated by Mike Godwin in 1990. The law states that:

As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1 (i.e. certainty).


Case's Corollary
If the subject is Heinlein or homosexuality, the probability of a Hitler/Nazi comparison being made becomes equal to 1 (i.e. certainty)

Sircar's Corollary
If the Usenet discussion touches on homosexuality or Heinlein, Nazis or Hitler are mentioned within three days.

This rule may seem identical to the previous, but they differ slightly in that the Case corollary states probability, while the Sircar corollary also includes a time limit. These two rules are sometimes incorrectly cited as the same and attributed to both authors.



Looks like we made less than two hours with regards to Sircar's Corollary. That's gotta be a record.

No, it's their fault for even WANTING someone else's money in the first place. I put anyone who want someone else to pay for their BEHAVIOR in the same group. There is no "transending" BS, they want something for nothing, life just does not work like that in the real world, tho social engineering types try.
