hang on guys. the article was that they changed their minds in the end and the employees WERE allowed in the end. And i happen to like the coffee
The evils of a business that is popular...we must put an end to it. The only businesses that should be allowed to survive are those that are not popular or successful. We must do our duty and put an end to anything that the general public likes, because we know better.
As soon as this site becomes more popular, we must turn against it and have it banned, as well.
Since when did "our troops overseas" constitute the whole of Canada?
I don't get the big fuss. I don't understand why the one group that we need to be outraged about all the time is "the troops". If they didn't allow their employees to wear pink or red ribbons no one would care. Why should I stop buying good hot chocolate because Tim's didn't automatically jump on the "we love the troops" bandwagon?
During WW I and WWII (LWF), the sentiment that all the men and women, serving our Nation overseas, were considered the sons and daughters of our Nation, was common place. Therefore, if you turn your back on our sons and daughters, you turn your back on our Nation.
Personally, I agree. I don't give two flying f**k's whether or not you believe the war is right or wrong, those men and women deserve nothing less.
I can't stand Timmy's coffee, but I do purchase it from time to time as need be. But from here on out, I think not.
If Tim Hortons wont let their employees wear a pink ribbon for breast cancer why are they letting them wear red on fridays for a bias, political cause. Now if a Tim Hortons employee doesn't wear red on friday he or she may get harrassed by customers who are hell bent on this. This is so stupid.
my country right or wrong?
So what you're telling me here is I'm supposed to buy into some poorly contexted 50-year-old propagandic corporate stretch of the imagination as if it and not social pressure is the reality I should be concerned with? Not in Leo Strauss' dreams.
CDNbear, you dont get it. No matter what I say you'll still spew right wing nonsense. If you're so gun ho about this war and love your troops so much then go over there and really support them. Wearing red does nothing. It doesn't support them in anyway. What does it do? You're wearing red on friday. So what? All it's doing is diverting what really should be talked about, getting our troops out of a lost cause.
Our military is NOT beating the beast back from our door. They never were. They ARE increasing the risk of a terrorist attack by being there. But there is no point saying this to you because you are so brainwashed by the right wing media, lies that appeal to people who dont think for themselves.
Now your getting nasty. I propose we end the name calling and stick to the issue we are arguing about.
