STARBUCKS HAS RED CUPS FOR CHRISTMAS: OH NO! THE RED CUPS!

Jimmy Zulz

Published

I know some folks that just enjoy being ticked off during the holidays, but honestly – it doesn’t bother me if someone says “Happy Holidays” to me, or if TV stations use that phrase, or whoever really. It’s not offensive to me, it doesn’t harm my belief system, and I’m confident that Baby Jesus isn’t the least bit upset by it. I refuse to believe that the God of the universe gets upset over such mundane things as whether or not someone says Merry Christmas. Truthfully, in today’s society Christmas is more about Black Friday now than it is about the Christ child’s birth. And no I’m not saying it should be – but realistically, it is. So everyone just please chill out.

Starbucks has a red cup for the holidays and people are all in a flutter about whether or not it means that Starbucks is hurting Baby Jesus. It’s okay, folks. People will do what they do and say what they say. It’s not like everyone is going to stop being immoral and become HOLY for the holidays – that’s not where we are in our culture today. I think that if you want to bring Christ back into Christmas, the first thing you ought to do is start taking your family to church more than once or twice a year.

That would be something tangible and make a big difference. But getting upset over the red cup at Starbucks? I’ve actually seen people saying that they are not going to go to Starbucks anymore because of the red cup, and that’s just ridiculous. Go! Go to Starbucks and be defiant and tell the cashier, “Merry Christmas, darn it!” or whatever… maybe leave the ‘darn it’ out if you prefer.

But anyway, Happy Holidays you heathens.

    Amen!! Loved this dose of truth! I post little on Facebook, but got so ticked off at the absurdity of the “Red Cups” I posted this:

    More than 30,000 people are starving to death in South Sudan. Tens of thousands of people fleeing war are being fished out of the Aegean Sea. And over 8 million acres of land in the west was destroyed by wildfires this summer! Grow Up People! It’s A CUP!

    Jimmy was far more kind & certainly better written.

“Well I just want to thank everybody. This is a truly amazing group of people. I won’t tell you the hundreds of calls we’ve had asking to come to this meeting, and I will say, and I will say Peter was sort of saying, ’No, that company’s too small.’ And these are monster companies. But I want to thank — I want to start by thanking Peter because he saw something very early, maybe before we saw it and of course he’s known for that in a different way. But he’s been so terrific and so outstanding and he got just about the biggest applause at the Republican National Convention. He’s ahead of the curve, and I want to thank you, man, you’re a very special guy.

So I want to add that I’m here to help you folks do well. And you’re doing well right now and I’m honored by the bounce. They’re all talking about the bounce, so right now everybody in this room has to like me at least a little bit, but we’re going to try and have that bounce continue and perhaps even more importantly we want you to keep going with the incredible innovation. There’s nobody like you in the world. In the world, there’s nobody like the people in this room.

And anything we can do to help this go along, and we’re going to be there for you and you’ll call my people, you’ll call me, it doesn’t make any difference, we have no formal chain of command around here. I’m honored to have Gary, the president of Goldman Sachs, left Goldman Sachs to do this, and Wilbur, everybody knows Wilbur, they never call him Wilbur Ross on Wall Street, they just say “Oh, it’s Wilbur.” There’s nobody like him.

And we’re gonna do fair trade deals. We’re going to make it a lot easier for you to trade across borders because of a lot of restrictions, a lot of problems that I think you’ll see. And if you have any ideas on that, that would be, that would be great because there are a lot of border restrictions and a lot of border problems, you probably have less of a problem than some companies, some companies have—you have some problems.”

SCROOGLED; MAINSTREAM MEDIA ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES WHO MANIPULATE THE GENERAL PUBLIC

WRITTEN BY: GEORGE LUJACK

Google has recently been exposed for actively altering search recommendations in favor of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, as their search engine directs searchers to positive stories of Clinton, when negative stories about Clinton are queried.
Big businesses, such as Google and Facebook, have joined the mainstream media in subtle and overt manipulation of the American general public to manipulate them, screw them, and steer them in favor of liberal policies and liberal politicians.
