Starbucks Red Cup Controversy The famous Starbucks holiday cup is always decorated for the holiday season with little designs that go along with Christmas. This year a Starbuck’s controversy surfaced because this year Starbucks put up plain red cups and many people are going against this. This is because many people feel as if they are being discriminated from being religious or Christian. Starbucks usually puts festive snowflakes or of people sledding down hills to show the holiday season, but not this year. Josh Feuerstein, a former pastor living in Arizona, made a video to insult the red cups from Starbucks.
They have every right to know what they want, and making these big manufacturers not sell a good that has been he for a lifetime is quite ridiculous. There has also been an incident with Walmart that has caused curiosity within the community of Louisiana. The story goes that the man “ordered the image of the Confederate flag on a cake with the words, ’Heritage Not Hate’” (Kim), but the bakery denied the cake. He went back later and “managed to get an ISIS battle flag printed,” (Kim). Although Walmart did
For example directV customers are demanding refunds for their Sunday ticket NFL channel because of their opposition of the players kneeling for the national anthem. Another example of the boycotting is bar and restaurant owners in Massachusetts, South Carolina, Louisiana, Tennessee, New York, and Texas have stopped streaming the NFL games on TV. “The sole reason that I didn’t air the game is because I feel the players disrespected the national anthem and that is something I hold dear to my heart,” stated one bar owner in Louisiana. Not only have restaurants stopped showing the game but diehard fans have destroyed their once very cherished team gear. Those oppose the actions of Colin Kaepernick have stopped watching the NFL and refused to keep their once precious
The most recent shock to the people regarding the topic of abortion was when President Trump was pictured with six other men signing a ban on federal funding for international groups that provide information on abortions. Considering this was a picture of seven men making a decision that would affect women across the nation, it’s understandable as to why people would be upset about this.Though to have a better understanding of both sides it is important to be aware of how the first debate came to be. In 1971, a case first came up where Jane Roe, a Texas resident, wanted to terminate her pregnancy by abortion. At the time, Texas law prohibited abortions and the only exception to the law was if the pregnancy put the women’s life at risk. After being appealed, the case was taken on by the Supreme Court.
McDonald's has the duty to warn customers of the dangerous conditions, such as the sizzling coffee in this case. Although the coffee cup did say "Caution: Contents Hot" McDonald's admitted in court that customers were unaware that the coffee could cause a third-degree burn and the sign on the cup was not a warning rather than a reminder. Although if the franchise's manual allowed McDonald's to have the coffee to 185 degrees Fahrenheit, McDonald's received 700 injuries claims caused by the hot coffee served. Some of the claims resulted from a third-degree burn, such as the plaintiff's injury. McDonald's failed in warning customers of the extremely hot coffee the Stylophone cup held.
It is an un-American and evil worldview, which makes Rand’s influence on the Republican party all the more terrifying. House Speaker Paul Ryan has his interns read her work; GOP leaders from Ted Cruz to Ron Paul and Rush Limbaugh sing her praises; the Tea Party Movement, the dominant force among conservatives today, cites Rand as one of its most important philosophers. And her vision is deeply embedded in the policy proposals the GOP puts forward, which if enacted, would eviscerate the American safety net. Since Trump took office, Republicans have proposed laws that would rob 32 million people of health insurance, fund a border wall by drastically reducing poverty programs, and cut $1.8 trillion from Medicare, Medicaid and Obamacare in order to pay for tax cuts for the
Republican Presidential nominee hopeful Donald Trump made the rounds of the Sunday morning political shows this week, bringing his patented brand of mud-slinging, political spin with him. NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd immediately put Donald Trump on the defensive by airing a new Ted Cruz ad. The ad accuses Trump of using eminent domain to at powerful business connections to "bulldoze the home of an elderly widow". The ad claims that Donald Trump won 't change the system because he 's what 's wrong with it. Trump denied the claims made by the ad.
Maine Charitable Mechanic Association was a failure. I lead this reform in order to end all liquor licensing and the support I gained from that referendum pushed me to further my attempts at prohibition. Now 6 years later, I propose this: that the Senate and state House ban the sale of alcohol in small quantities, and that any person who is in possession of alcohol be punished accordingly. In order to function, we must stop the “Grog Time” bells that allow our working staff to intoxicate themselves, and redeem the name of our beloved country. Neal Dow,
“But they didn 't have much to say about how they 'd make it right.” In this sentence President Obama talk about the negative strategy that the republicans and this leads President Obama to talk about more negative things that the republicans do for example on the next two lines. There are also many rhetorical pauses in the speech, not only when the citizens clap in their hands, but also when President Obama changes his subject in the speech. President Obama also uses rhetorical questions in the text for example page 3 line 8: “Feel a cold coming on? Take two tax cuts, roll back some regulations, and call us in the morning.” In this sentence President Obama gives the citizens a question but he doesn’t really need an answer because he already knows it and he already know what to say, but when he uses this kind of rhetorical questions he makes the citizens think that he wants to hear their opinion and that their opinion is very important in America and that create a bond between the President and the citizens. With this speech President Obama creates a bond between him at the citizens and he build up a lot of trust and that is one of the most important things for an election because it is hard for a president to win an election if the citizens don’t trust
It seems like almost every day Donald Trump comes up with a new infantile comeback to justify his despicable behavior or of those in his employ. Recently on "ABC 's This Week" Trump came under fire for Tweeting out an insulting photo of Ted Cruz 's wife, Heidi, but justified his immature Twitter tantrum by blaming Ted Cruz and lamenting "He started it", proving Trump can multi-task as he acts like a belligerent asshole and a petulant child at the same time. While barely a week goes by that Trump is not the media focus of some new act of disgraceful behavior, this week it was Trump 's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who is in the hot seat for an incident that happened earlier this month involving his alleged assault of former Breitbart reporter, Michelle Fields.
It appears that the men are a little upset about the CEO of GE not paying taxes. Both guys said some angry words which is “It General Electric’s latest product… It bores loopholes in the tax code.” The other guy replied and said “And that why GE doesn’t pay taxes!” This may have happened around March 26, 2011 because it is stated. The cartoon expresses on how the CEO of GE doesn’t pays the taxes but he can manage to make new products that doesn’t seem to grab anyone’s attention but it costs him in taxes. As you can see, the drill and the book seems to be the symbol of everything, it shows you how the CEO of GE doesn’t pay his taxes, instead he tries making new products which he probably can’t afford. People who are against the GE would probably agree that he isn’t doing what he should do with the

It was March 22, 1765, and my father had gotten word of the new law at work today. He worked as a merchant, and when he had gotten a new shipment of paper learned that Great Britain now put a tax on every document of paper in the US. Great Britain was in a financial drought because of the French and Indian war, and had resorted to taxing us for their faults. The law did not benefit Americans at all, only the British. He grew more furious still.
Carter had first allowed a shah to seek medical attention in the U.S. after previously being banned from coming, after the shah was in America, Iranian students attacked the embassy and took hostages.
