Violent Trumpazoid Gets Butt Kicked and Arrested After Racist Tirade & Punching Innocent Bystander

Couple of good shots in there at then end when the crowd takes this clown down.

Understand the guy being upset that he had coffee spilled on his cheap, ill fitting suit. Most intelligent people settle it with an offer to pay for cleaning the suit. Of course, intelligence and racist Trumpazoid aren’t words you usually find in the same sentence.

Had a similar situation on an airplane while flying to Dallas on a day trip. The Flight Attendant dumped the entire breakfast tray on my chest when the aircraft hit turbulence. Being a day trip, where I expected to return that evening, I had not packed any spare clothes. Having taken my suit jacket off prior to sitting, the damage was to my shirt and tie. Explained the situation to the Flight Attendant. When arriving in Dallas, not having time for a dry cleaner, I bought a new shirt and tie. The Airline reimbursed me for the inconvenience (this was back in the day when they still gave a shit about passengers). A straightforward solution for everyone concerned.

The difference between normal people and Trump inspired racist assholes.

The Persecution of Christmas by Starbucks

One of the common themes shared by both Christians and Muslims is martyrdom for religious belief. While the Islamic world has certainly seen that twisted by a number of radical, violent groups… So have christians in the US. Faced with a rapid erosion in membership, some elements have come up with the “Christian persecution” meme. Since their particular version of Christianity is “infallible” and empowered by whatever version of God they wish to believe in…The fact that all Americans, and especially Millennials are leaving the faith must have something to do with “evil liberalism”, and couldn’t possibly be because of their own rigid, and increasingly reactionary belief sets.

As we have seen with Uncle Ben Carson and other grifters on the right since Sarah Palin, the imaginary persecution of christians is big business. Christian Victimization as a hustle raises big bucks.

This leads us to the dang near ubiquitous Starbucks franchise – a popular target due to their logo.

Joshua Feuerstein, on the left side of this video, is an opportunistic grifter who has latched on to this rich vein of money. Often peddling anti-gay rants, the narcissistic grifter seems to have hit a rich gold vin in attacking Starbucks. Never mind the fact that Joshua Feuerstein appears as a Chaz Bono impersonator as a sideline.

Strawberry Bugacchinno

This article mentions bugs as “meat” relative to vegetarian diets…

Bugs are “meat”?

Now these little crunchy cactus eating critters have been used for hundreds of years as a source of red dyes, and originated in Aztec and Mayan Mexico…

It is commonly used in a number of food items as coloring, including Ketchup.

So much for Ketchup being a “vegetable”.

Cochineal Bugs

Starbucks Strawberry Frappuccinos dyed with crushed up cochineal bugs, report says

Are you a fan of Starbucks Strawberry Frappuccinos? How do you feel about eating bugs?

The website thisdishisvegetarian.com reports Starbucks’ Strawberries & Creme Frappuccino is not vegan, even if it contains soy, after a barista alerted the site that the company’s new strawberry flavoring contains “cochineal extract” – which is essentially crushed up dried bugs used as dye.

“My guess would be that the recipe changed about three or four weeks ago, when our strawberry sauce got new packaging,” the barista told the website. “I was hoping you guys could help get the word out there so that no vegans end up drinking this formerly vegan frappucino by mistake!”

Cochineal extract comes from the dried bodies of cochineal bugs and has been used for thousands of years to color fabrics. The extract is also known as “carmine” or “crimson lake.”

A Starbucks spokesperson replied to the vegetarian website on March 16, according to the site.

“At Starbucks, we strive to carry products that meet a variety of dietary lifestyles and needs. We also have the goal to minimize artificial ingredients in our products,” the spokesperson said. “While the strawberry base isn’t a vegan product, it helps us move away from artificial dyes.”

HealthPop could not reach Starbucks for comment at press time.

The report has prompted a petition on Change.org that calls on Starbucks to use other natural alternatives for food coloring, including red beets, purple sweet potatoes and paprika.

The news has also prompted some to point out that a whole lot of our food already contains cochineal extract – and has for quite some time. The FDA says the dye is safe and food and cosmetic labels must state if cochineal extract is present. That means it may be found in wines, yogurts, candies, fruit drinks, ice creams, ketchup, lipsticks, eyeshadow, nail polish – you name it.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest petitioned the FDA in 1998 to get the product labeled on packaging after a study found the dye caused an allergic reaction in one patient. The CSPI has received many complaints since, it said in a 2009 article.

Guns ‘n Latte

"Machco" Gun Nut Needs Locked and Loaded Colt Automatic to Face Down 9 Year Old Holding a Sign

As a gun owner – this is an embarrassment. Grown man needs Colt 45 to face down a bunch of elementary school kids carrying signs.

Which is about what this particular “argument” is all about. This is about a bunch of cowards needing a penis substitute in the form of a gun to crawl out of their holes every morning to face the world on even terms. These are the sort of febrile minded right wingers who need 4 tabs of Viagra so they can find their “manhood” to take a piss.

Those of you who frequent my site, certainly know that I am certainly not anti-Gun…

But I am anti-stupidity.

If you need a gun to go to Church, a PTA meeting, a High School Basketball game, or to get a cup of coffee – you don’t need a gun…

You need to be in a freakin’ psych ward.

Starbucks sticks to its guns

Starbucks is asking nicely: Could we please, please stop talking about guns?

The Seattle-based coffee giant was thrust in the middle of a gun-control debate it never wanted to have when it refused a request from gun-control groups to ban guns in its stores this winter.

The company gave short, curt statements as the issue gained traction over the past several weeks. On Wednesday, as gun-control advocates prepared a Seattle news conference in view of the original Starbucks store, the company spoke loud and clear: We’ve made our decision. Can we please move on?
