Only in America...


Burger King is being sued by a group of vegans who complain their meat-free Impossible Whoppers were cooked on the same grill as regular beef patties

The lawsuit was filed by Phillip Williams on Monday, after the chain advertises their Impossible Burgers as a vegan – however cooks it next to meat burgers
Williams says as a result of Burger King’s counter-productive cooking methods, his supposed meat-free Impossible Whopper was contaminated by meat
The burger in question was said to have been purchased at a franchise in Atlanta
Williams also cites other similar complaints from vegans online who claimed to have had their Impossible Burgers cooked alongside regular beef patties
Williams is seeking compensation for damages, and is also urging Burger King to stop cooking the Impossible Burgers on standard grills altogether

The most selfish generation....

Millennials say playing 'Secret Santa' in the workplace gives them 'anxiety issues' because they fear being seen as 'too stingy', academic warns
A report by Jobsite found that young workers spend more on Secret Santa gifts
They fear about being called 'stingy' and often dip into their savings
Dr Ashley Weinberg said the gift exchange leads to 'anxiety' for young people

So then those millennials can sue the workplace for giving them anxiety? BTW, how's that impossible burger? Does it still taste like a whopper since it's from the same grill?

Wow, Snowflakes cost almost a Billion dollars to poor shareholders...what a bunch of idjuts.

Peloton says it's 'disappointed in how some have misinterpreted' their 'sexist' ad after stocks plummeted 10 percent and cost the company $942million
In an emailed statement, the high-end at home fitness brand shared that they are constantly inundated with positive comments
While we're disappointed in how some have misinterpreted this commercial, we are encouraged by the outpouring of support,' Peloton added
Peloton Interactive Inc's stock was down 9.12 per cent on Tuesday
Their ad titled 'The Gift That Gives Back' shows a woman receiving a Peloton bike from her husband on Christmas morning 
Twitter users branded the commercial sexist, misogynistic and cringeworthy

The internet never forgets...another Snowflake hypocrite shot down by their own past.

Police chief's estranged daughter who called him a racist after he shared 'Pig' Starbucks cup photo on Facebook has her OWN history of offensive language, using N-word and complaining about society 'going pro black and anti white'
Oklahoma police chief's  post on Facebook about a Starbucks employee writing 'Pig' on his deputy's coffee cup went viral over the weekend

Johnny O'Mara's estranged daughter Lauren sided with the barista, calling her own father a 'racist' and claimed he had 'zero business being a police officer'
But the 23-year-old has her own disturbing history of racist language posted on social media, DailyMail.com can reveal
Lauren has used the N-word on Twitter, called her black friend a 'n** nog', tweeted a lewd black joke about Jesus
She also wrote: 'I don't like how we are going pro black and anti white, I know that blacks have suffered but it just isn't the way equality is achieved'

When Twitter users called her out on the language, she dismissed the comments as being a childish mistake

This really is the stupidest generation.....

Peloton 'husband' who gives his wife a stationary bike for Christmas in THAT sexist ad says his friends now call him 'a symbol of the patriarchy', as he now fears for his future as a teacher


Sean Hunter is an actor and school teacher based in Vancouver, British Columbia
Hunter plays the husband in the now-infamous ad for the Peloton workout bike
Ad portrays husband who buys his wife a stationary bike for Christmas
Wife is then seen riding bike frequently for over a year before thanking husband
Hunter says that he was taken aback by the social media backlash against ad
He says friends have called him a 'symbol of the patriarchy'
Hunter worries ad will negatively impact his career as an actor and a teacher

So now snowflakes need a college level course on...living?  A Cal degree just is not what it used to be.

UC Berkeley undergrads create their own 'Adulting' class to share real-life skills including budgeting, managing stress and navigating romantic relationships with their classmates
Belle Lau, 21, and Jenny Zhou, 20, came up with the idea for the course last year after noting shortcomings in their education at University of California, Berkeley
Upon moving out of their dorms and into apartments, the pair found themselves struggling to stick to a budget as they spent too much money eating out
Suspecting that peers may be facing similar struggles with adjusting to adult life, Lau and Zhou decided to create a curriculum to increase students' self-reliance
Their 12-week course called 'Adulting' debuted to high demand last spring
Each 90-minute session features a presentation from Zhou and Lau, followed by a presentation from an outside expert

To go through life in a constant state of fear is sad enough...but to train your children to be always anxious is child abuse.

Parenting in the age of ‘eco-anxiety’: Wildfire fears, and a deeper dread


In the mental health field (of which I’m a part), some clinicians might say I was experiencing “eco-anxiety,” and perhaps it’s true. Across the globe, worry related to a changing and uncertain natural environment is clogging up our minds, bodies and news feeds. To be sure, there is real cause to worry. If we do not act quickly to combat climate change, our future looks exceedingly grim: climate-related deaths, mass migrations, environmental devastation, extinction of species. But, other than managing this anxiety to whatever extent possible, are there really any better options?
As a parent raising two young children in California, I’m struck by the peculiar, often unsettling contours of this particular moment: how families are readying evacuation kits, attempting to fit child-size masks, discussing air quality indexes with neighbors — all while maintaining some semblance of ordinary life. At the root, a low-grade anxiety permeates. On the surface, we are resilient and functional.

Like Smith forcing the Dems to impeach and shooting themselves in the foot, watching the left eat its own in the name of inclusiveness is thing of beauty to watch.

Cancel Culture Comes For J.K. Rowling Over “Transphobic” Tweet

J.K. Rowling, the wildly successful author of Harry Potter books is under fire on social media for posting a tweet in support of science. A tax expert at a think tank in London was fired for tweeting that transgender women can’t change their biological sex. Rowling tweeted in support of her. The horror. The immediate reaction of the cancel culture mob on Twitter was intense.

All Rowling did was to break her silence on Twitter since September to post a tweet in support of Maya Forstater after she lost a case against her employer, Centre for Global Development (CGD). Forstater lost a case against her employer after the think tank fired her over a tweet. The tweet was deemed transphobic by CGD. A judge in a U.K. employment tribunal ruled against her complaint.
