That is as delicious as it is predictable. What did they think was going to happen when the demographics of their voting base moved outside of the demographics their corporate overlords found most appealing? Coke doesn't give a **** about keeping a 70 yr old customer happy, but a 20 yr old who hasn't developed soft drink brand loyalty yet? Worth thousands of dollars each to them. They will pander like a motherfucker to make said 20 yr old believe that Coke aligns with their personal beliefs.

This Pepsi commercial was fucking cringe worthy, but it was early to the party and underlines what these big brands are trying to accomplish:

In fairness to those people, our Eddie has been gone a long, long time. We saw him for a few minutes at the Mark Twain event, but it had been a few decades between that and the last time our Eddie showed up.


"those people" surprised by the casual racism in 2021

This video is one of those examples of real life being almost impossible to distinguish from satire.

And also a great demonstration of the idiocy of hardcore libertarianism as a governing philosophy.

It's more proof that what they see as freedom is nothing but the childish notion that their actions can only affect themselves personally and they have no responsibility towards anyone else, regardless of how their actions affect other people.

They want a "license" (heh) to be selfish assholes that disregards everyone else on the planet and suffer no repercussions for their actions.

UNLESS THERE IS A FINANCIAL CRISIS -- THEN WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

There's no such thing as society. There are individual men and women and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look after themselves first. It is our duty to look after ourselves and then, also, to look after our neighbours."
– Margaret Thatcher 1987
