Someone complained about Dunkin’ Donuts
hot cups on Facebook and a war broke out

Boston Globe, by Steve Annear

Posted By:NorthernDog, 7/14/2017 11:31:57 PM

It’s safe to say this person will never be the Mayor of Dunkin’ Donuts. When a customer took to the company’s Facebook page Sunday to complain that an employee used a hot cup to insulate an iced coffee, New England die-hards who swear by the practice came out swinging. (Snip) Dunkin’ has been heavily criticized in recent years as more customers and environmental activists have pushed the company to phase out the use of cups made of polystyrene, more commonly known as Styrofoam or foam. Communities like Brookline, Cambridge, and Somerville have banned the use of polystyrene, forcing Dunkin’ to

Comments:
I love Styrofoam. It insulates, is lightweight, and inexpensive. But liberals always need something to feel superior about.

The howling mob never stops. Take McDonald´s for instance. First they used foam containers for their burgers. The mob complained, so McDonalds´s started using cardboard. Then the mob demanded they cook their fries in a different type of oil, McDonald´s capitulated again and used a different type of oil. Then the mob complained about the Happy Meals targeting children, so the burger company started packing apple slices and juice instead of fries and soda´s if the parents asked. Then it was what they paid their workers. Not enough for the mob, it had to be a ´living´ wage and they determined that was $15 an hour. I wonder what the howling mob will demand next? You would think these companies would learn and stop these freaks from telling them how to run their businesses.

You can have my Dunkin Donuts styrofoam coffee cup when you pry it out of my cold dead fingers.

After I empty it first of course.

They see their control stating to slip away and it has them panicking.

You don´t want styrofoam cup for your coffee? Hey, no problem, come over to the coffee urn and cup your hands under the nozzle...

That should cure the snowflake´s problems...oh and on the urn is a sign "Use of your hands to get coffee negates your ability to sue for damages."

While promoting her newly released memoir, Hillary Clinton has placed blame on several factors for her loss to Donald Trump last November — from her own mistakes, to Russian interference in the U.S. election, and the late intervention by then-FBI director James Comey. But Clinton has also spoken candidly about how deep-rooted sexism played a hand in her defeat, and about the double standards she faced as the first woman nominated by a major party for president in America’s 240-year history. In an interview with the New York Times published Saturday, Clinton spoke further about how misogyny is used as

After violent protests erupted in St. Louis Friday night, U2 has announced they´ve canceled a Saturday night performance in the city. The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department said 32 people were arrested when protesters took to the streets after a white former police officer, Jason Stockley, was acquitted earlier that day in the 2011 fatal shooting of Lamar Smith, a black man. St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson found Stockley not guilty of first-degree murder and armed criminal action for the Dec. 20, 2011 incident, in which Stockley shot Smith five times after a high-speed chase and crash.

EU plans to raise tax bill of

TALLINN - Nearly one third of European Union states backed a plan to tax digital multinationals on their turnover, France said on Friday, as the EU weighs a range of other measures to increase the tax bill of companies like Google and Amazon. The moves are part of a growing campaign in the EU to claim tax revenues that online giants are accused of skirting by routing most of their profits to low tax rate states, like Ireland and Luxembourg. "The digital economy should be taxed as the rest of the economy," the EU commissioner for taxation, Pierre Moscovici, told

CNN host Anthony Bourdain joked in an interview with TMZ that he would poison President Trump if given the opportunity to cook for him and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. "If Trump and Kim Jong-un were going to have a bit of a summit to try and mend relations and they wanted you to cater, what would you serve?" asked a TMZ reporter. "Hemlock," Bourdain deadpanned. Hemlock is defined as "a drug or lethal drink prepared from the poison hemlock" that has been used as an execution method. The 61-year-old host of CNN´s weekly food and travel series, "Parts Unknown," later told Fox

Hillary Clinton told CNN on Wednesday that it is time to abolish the Electoral College, part of a sweeping interview where the former Democratic nominee sought to explain why she lost the 2016 election. Clinton, in the interview with CNN´s Anderson Cooper, displayed her animus for fired FBI Director James Comey, reflected on her love for the people -- namely former President Bill Clinton -- who helped her get through the crushing loss and blasted the arcane election body that she believes helped Donald Trump win the presidency. "I think it needs to be eliminated," Clinton said of the Electoral

Five people including a mother and son are accused in an elaborate scheme to defraud a fund set up to aid Gatlinburg wildfire victims. Debra Kay Catlett, her son, Chad Alan Chambers, and three associates - Rocco Boscalia, Ammie Lyons and Esther Pridemore - are charged in a sealed presentment handed up by a Sevier County grand jury earlier this year with a conspiracy to defraud the Dollywood Foundation´s My People Fund. Entertainer and Sevier County native Dolly Parton established the fund soon after last year´s wildfires that claimed 14 lives and destroyed thousands of homes and businesses.

NEW YORK — Hillary Clinton, who spent decades on the public stage in a myriad of roles and changing personas, emerged Tuesday in a new one: ghost from the political past. The reception was decidedly mixed. (Snip) The former candidate, wearing a luminescent turquoise jacket and trademark black pantsuit, arrived at the bookstore nearly an hour after the scheduled 11 a.m. starting time. The crowd greeted her with shouts of "Hillary! Hillary! Hillary!" Seated on a makeshift stage separating her from reporters and those in line, Clinton made no public remarks to the media, but chatted with fans, offering sympathetic

Alabama Democrat Doug Jones is running just a few points behind his potential Republican opponents for a Senate seat in the deep-red state, according to a new poll. The poll from Emerson College finds former Alabama state Supreme Court Judge Roy Moore ahead of Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) by a 14-point margin ahead of the GOP´s special election primary runoff on Sept. 26. But both Republicans would hold only a slim advantage over Jones, according to the poll-Moore leads Jones by 4 percentage points, while Strange leads by 3 points. The poll is a surprisingly strong result for Jones, who was expected to have no

Sergio Dipp´s ESPN job appears safe after ´Monday Night Football´ meltdown. Shaken sideline reporter Sergio Dipp took to Twitter to try to explain his meltdown on ESPN´s "Monday Night Football." As a minority himself, the Mexico native said he was trying to show "respect" to the African-American head coaches on the sidelines, Vance Joseph of the Broncos and Anthony Lynn of the Chargers. The second game of ESPN´s "MNF" doubleheaders marked the first time two African-American coaches made their respective head coaching debuts in the same game, according to the New York Post.

Amazon has been monitoring and deleting reviews after Hillary Clinton´s new book was greeted with a torrent of criticism on the day it was released. What Happened, which covers the former Secretary of State´s unsuccessful election campaign against Donald Trump, was published on Tuesday. Clinton and her publisher Simon & Schuster claimed the book would offer a candid account of her failure and her own reflection on it.  Reviews of What Happened have been mixed, with some suggesting it Clinton uses it as an opportunity to blame others – such as Bernie Sanders and Vladimir Putin – for her failure, rather than herself.

A Wisconsin Dairy Queen owner is defending a sign describing his restaurant as "politically incorrect" for its unabashed support for "God and country." The sign at the franchise in Kewaskum notifies patrons that staff may say "Merry Christmas," ´´Happy Easter" and "God Bless America," among other things. Owner Kevin Scheunemann tells WDJT-TV he "felt the sign was appropriate to hang in terms of being transparent about the views of the owner and staff supporting God and country." One customer who apparently doesn´t agree took a picture of the sign and complained about it on Dairy Queen´s page on Facebook. The chain

Poor Dana Milbank. For all of his life he has been the picture of perfect health. And then Donald Trump was elected President and completely ruined it to the point where he is now dying.

The 2017 Emmys Awards ceremony wasted no time getting political during Sunday’s opening segment, as host Stephen Colbert and friends made political jokes within the very first minute — and Colbert quickly accused President Trump of treason. Before his opening song, host Stephen Colbert chatted with Anthony Anderson and Allison Janney, and she complained about the current state of the world. The “Mom” actress mentioned global warming and fighting leaders, and joked that HBO was bringing back “the Confederacy,” a reference to the flap over HBO’s planned new drama series “Confederate.” Moments later, Colbert sang about the virtues of television,

The Big Idea: If I had to stock Hillary Clinton’s new memoir in a bookstore, I’d be tempted to place it in a section on self-help or bereavement. “What Happened” was quickly strip-mined for political nuggets after its publication last Tuesday. As I went through it over the weekend, though, what struck me most was how the wounded Democrat coped after her crushing defeat last November. In short, Clinton has read voraciously and eclectically — for escape, for solace and for answers. The collection of works that she cites across 494 pages showcases a top-flight intellect and would make for a compelling graduate school seminar.

ST. LOUIS -- Protests turned violent for second night near St. Louis following the acquittal of a white former police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man, as a small group of demonstrators refused to disperse, breaking windows at dozens of businesses and throwing objects at police, who moved in with hundreds of officers in riot gear to make arrests. The confrontation took place late Saturday night in the Delmar Loop area of University City, a suburb about 10 miles (16 kilometers) west of St. Louis near Washington University. The area is known for concert venues, restaurants, shops and

A woman police believe was pregnant was among five people killed and 13 wounded in Chicago shootings Friday into Saturday morning. The woman was one of four victims slain in a rifle attack in the Brighton Park neighborhood Friday night, police said. The quadruple homicide happened about 8:40 p.m. in the 4700 block of South Fairfield Avenue, police said. Three men and a woman were inside a vehicle when someone inside a white SUV opened fire on them with a rifle, police said. Responding police officers found their bodies inside the vehicle and they were pronounced dead on the scene. The

The silent coup has apparently succeeded. President Trump has been convinced to abandon his revolutionary program of putting “America First,” and has decided to play footsy with globalists like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.There have been signs since before Trump took office that he was not dedicated to accomplishing the goals he promised—whether that was building the wall, repealing Obamacare, cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood, lowering taxes, leaving NAFTA, or many more.[SNIP]The final nail in Trump’s and America’s coffin may be his decision to become the stepfather to President Obama’s illegal executive order establishing Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals.

People who claim to be shocked that Donald Trump is prepared to make an amnesty deal for the"Dreamers" -- most of whom are Mexicans who entered the USA at around the age of six -- are being more than a tad disingenuous. The president has been hinting as much for over a year to anyone paying attention. In fact, it´s hard to conceive how he could have done otherwise, considering the (excuse the cliché) "optics" of shipping 800,000 young people back to a homeland they may never have seen. The question is what your definition of amnesty is. It´s a

Hillary Clinton rejects the idea that a June 2016 meeting between her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch critically damaged her White House bid. “I just don’t buy that,” Clinton said in a PBS interview aired Friday evening to promote her new book, “What Happened,” about her loss last year to Donald Trump. As Clinton has in several other, recent interviews promoting the book, she heaped much of the blame on then-FBI Director James Comey. Comey led the Justice Department investigation into Clinton’s use of private email servers as secretary of state, after Lynch stepped back

"I´m really more and more convinced that there are a lot of the Republicans in Washington who aren´t afraid that Donald Trump will fail. They´re afraid he will succeed and that he really will drain the swamp," the former 2016 presidential candidate told "Fox & Friends" on Saturday.
