commented on Barilla Pasta Is Apparently Intended for Homophobic Straight People
@10 It's the simple fact that he said anything on the subject to entertain the dialogue. What an idiot, he saw the pile in the grass, then stepped right in it. But, now that he's outed himself as a homophobic bigot who wants to keep women in the kitchen and gays from adopting children, then I think it's fair to unleash the wrath of social media and persecution on the company and their mediocre product offerings.

Up here in Edmonton, it looks like we're going to have to pay for a new arena, so that some millionaire owner's millionaire players can skate around a rink that is all decked out with billion dollar company's advertisements for this and that. As we head into another winter with many of our town's roads still littered with potholes and makeshift patches, I'm really glad the idiot populace of this great northern region saw it fit to grant a pledge of public money to go towards this endeavor. Genius idea, and really smart use of money! Go hockey!

You could probably mark entire aisles of grocery stores GM. And think about the fast food boxes, bags and soda cups with the GMO statement? People would be surprised to know that a majority of what American eats is GM, or contains GM ingredients (starches, flavorings, sub-ingredients). Also, there is some grey area within what is considered GMO (maybe an ingredient is made from corn, but is highly refined as to not contain significant amounts for GM material).
Outside of Monsanto, I'm sure there are many ingredients companies and other agri-chem interests that would like to see the consumers left in the dark on this one. I have high hopes, but I expect the corporate-funded interests with their DC insiders will probably find a way to tip the scales as they see necessary.

Yay! Overbread fashion puppy finds a home while perfectly loving and sweet would-be pets wait at the shelter for adoption (or the gas...). Fuck you media and fuck you White House fake All-American family!
