    But some of these companies hold liberal values. Some companies come straight out and support gay marriage. Some of them gives same sex couples benefits. They either see some of this as somehow beneficial to their company (not necessarily the open politics) OR they're liberals.



    I just came back from the zoo and the heat's gotten to my head. Where did I talk about race in this thread?

    I merely related what I personally know of the Tea Party and made the observation that you seem to be fixated upon equating them with all the worst humanity has to offer. The Tea Party has all races, Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Independents and others in it's ranks. What brings them together is a common desire to restore sanity to Washington's budget process and make the Constitution more than an inconvenient roadblock to a power mad professional political class. But I find it interesting that race is what you focused on in re to my statement. I believe that it is because as a progressive you practice identity politics and do not see the individual but rather the group. That is one of the main differences between conservatives and progressives.

    Back to the original subject, I was scrolling down facebook just now, and found something from Upworthy which offended them. McDonalds answers the question of the OP. Common sense stuff without being mean. They don't want their employees throwing McFlurries in their faces. lol.

    Typical Lib. Accuses anyone who differs with her of being an illiterate, then proceeds to demonstrate the same shortcoming she projects on anyone who doesn't agree with her.

    Truth of the matter is, these scumbags don't' want a "living wage". They want more money to buy crap. Can't buy that $600 XBOX or that $300 iPhone 5 on $7.50 an hour.

    There is NOOOOOOO difference between liberals and conservatives as people besides the ideology. They both tend to be know it alls who think the other side is either stupid or evil. They both have centrists that are considered to be disloyal to the cause. They both use their ideology to be buttholes. They both do stuff to prompt paranoia. They both act like nothing on their side was done to prompt paranoia. It really is like watching the same episode of Days of our Lives over and over and over again. I was totally pissed years ago when Days did a storyline that was LITERALLY a rip off of a storyline from over ten years before. I knew how the storyline would go, how it would end, etc. That's what it's like for me to watch politics over the years. Same drama, different political parties playing this and that role. I get bored at times. Othertimes, I want to scream out "That's what your side did years ago you hypocrite, now stop bitching that it's being done to you" (thinking of the spying issue).

    Can somebody please show me where I mentioned race in this thread? This is what I mean when I say I get falsely accused of stuff even if there's no proof or if I say the opposite. It's like some of you all think that saying it over and over again makes it true. It doesn't. Show me where I mentioned race in this thread. I honestly don't remember it.

    Okay, I just put black and white into the search box to see if I had said anything in relation to race in this thread. I didn't find any posts by me that said anything of those two words.

    What I did say was that out of everything contained in this statement of mine...

    "You seem to have a fixation on the the Tea Party. You use all the correct prog talking points stereotyping and demonizing them just as you accuse conservatives of doing to progs. Have you ever been to a Tea Party meeting? It was a black man that introduced me to the Tea Party. They transcend race, gender and to some extent politics. Their mission is simply to reestablish fiscal responsibility and obedience to the Constitution. They run more minority candidates that either the Dems or GOP. Perhaps you should attend a meeting and find out the truth instead of regurgitating talking points. And as far as your rant posed as a question, isn't what you're complaining about exactly what you do? "

    ...that I found it interesting that it was the word race that caught your attention. My description of the Tea Party demographic and misson in no way = you bringing up race.
