Most people in NYC are not murderous psychopaths. Some of them even want to make the world just a little better. This is sometimes accomplished by tossing grilled-cheese sandwiches off the top of tall buildings, with little parachutes attached.

Sure, you can make any argument you'd like; I am saying, "False" is the opinion of the courts that have heard any remotely similar case.

As businesses have seen success with offering veterans free meals on veterans day, more an more veterans are taking the opportunity to indulge in those meals.



I routinely get veteran's day off, and I often enjoy going out to eat for lunch or dinner with my wife and/or friends. While I have nothing against those businesses, and I find the business practice of offering free meals to our veterans on veteran's day to be agreeable, I avoid the restaurants which offer free meals to veterans like the plague on veteran's day.



As mentioned in the post above, people, it seems, will wait hours for those free meals. I simply am not one to stand in lines that I don't have to stand in.

What may be even more remarkable is the reason I regularly get veteran's day off; I am a veteran.

So this free food is for me, but the offering of the free food has provided reason for me to avoid patronizing these restaurants on veteran's day.

I find it more enjoyable to shell out the $12 for the burger and fries at a non-veteran-honoring restaurant than to wait in line for an hour, and then wait for service at my table for another hour; my $12 burger and fries will usually have me in, fed, happy, and out before the guy waiting in line at the veteran-honoring restaurant gets to sit down at his table.

I challenge this by giving people red coffee cups.

Christmas is a National Holiday -- it's not religous (it can't be).

It's about being cheerful during the worse time of year, showing good will towards man, and stimulating the economy while bringing joy.

The Christians that are upset at starbucks, are the same as the atheists who get upset at mentions of God/Jesus. Both are stupid ***** with no life and will die sad unnotable deaths.

Agreed.

That having been said, ever notice the label on the front of Trader Joe's tea-tree lavender scented dish soap?



I find it interesting that no SJ jihad has ever erupted over this.

There aren't any, at least as far as I can tell. I've seen 8 million Facebook posts both from Christians and non-Christians alike, commenting on how ridiculous the red cup thing is. I have yet to see any posts from any actual individual complaining about the red cups.

I have, however, seen many clickbait links that lead back to one sad guy in Arizona who labels himself a "social media personality", which I can only assume is a polite shorthand way of saying that he's made a conscious decision to reject his own humanity.

seems like you should be grateful for getting extra **** for free, not bitching because a company doesn't want to give away time and food.

About 30 seconds. If chipotle was paying their workers ~$350 an hour I want to work there.
