Starbuck’s – The Only Thing Shittier Than Their Coffee Is Their CEO

Monday, February 6th, 2017

When do we want justice? After I drink this venti caramel macchiato:

A Starbucks coffee shop in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia reportedly refused to serve women, a claim that the corporate giant was swiftly forced to deny.

A Twitter user by the name of Manar N posted an image of a message outside Starbucks which read, “Please no entry for ladies only send your driver to order – thank you.”

Holy stale biscotti, Batman!

A spokesunit for Starbuck’s had this to say:

“That was a temporary sign during a store renovation. This store now accommodates all customers in accordance with local law.”

And since there is no actual *local law* in Saudi Arabia (the Koran is used to dictate everything from A – Z), kick back and relax, grab yourself a $6 latte, and let The Mayor warm your lower cockles as he reads to you a few *local laws* that the Saudi’s embrace:

- Banned: Selling or wearing anything red on Valentine’s Day

- Banned: The mixing of sexes at malls and restaurants (Starbuck’s must get a reprieve from this, of course)

- Banned: Gyms and sports for women

- Banned: women driver’s

- Banned: Other religions

- Women are not allowed to do most of the jobs that men can do in Saudi Arabia.

- Women under 45 must either travel with a husband or father or else hold a permission form signed by a male guardian.

But as long as the cappuccino’s flow like sweet, light crude, these minor indiscretions can and will be pooh poohed. After all, Starbuck’s has promised to hire 10,000 refugees, supports BLM in a yuuuuge way, and is into every last leftist cause they can dig up, and even though Saudi is responsible to this day for stoning queer’s to death, supressing women’s and foreigner rights, etc, this can be overlooked because at least the Starbuck’s brass has good intentions.

And what did T.S. Eliot have to say about intentions?

“Most of the evil in this world is done by people with good intentions.”

And that, my friends, is the dollop of whipped cream on the grande espresso con panna.

Goodwill To Shut Down 16 Stores

Monday, January 18th, 2016

It looks as though The Mayor is going to have to find another place to dispose of his broken Casio alarm clock:

Goodwill Toronto, which collects donated clothing and goods, then sells them to fund programs for people with learning and physical disabilities, announced it was closing the 16 stores it runs, throwing some 450 people out of work.

A short statement from CEO Keiko Nakamura blamed the closing of the 80-year-old charitable organization “on a number of factors affecting the retail environment. Goodwill is facing a cash flow crisis.” Nakamura is the former head of Toronto Community Housing who was fired from the city agency in 2011 in the fallout from a spending scandal.

Goodwill Industries of Toronto, Central and Northern Ontario reported total revenue in 2014 of just over $28 million and expenses of $29,218,954, according to the registered charity’s tax filings — which also show it received more than $4 million in government funding.

Please feel free to correct The Mayor if he’s wrong, but doesn’t Goodwill get all their shit for free? And, aren’t a lot of those Goodwill folk volunteers?

In other words, Goodwill gets their shit for free, gets generous government subsidies, doesn’t have to pay a bunch of people, and is losing money hand-over-fist. That’s like losing money on your garage sale.

Perhaps Goodwill needs to get back down to basics and stop acting like it is an actual retail store. It’s suppose to be a place where folks can go in and get a smoking deal on whatever. Clothes mostly. Having said that, if you have been in a Goodwill recently, you will notice that they price their clothing like they are Neiman Marcus. Yes, The Mayor understands that the George brand faux cotton shirt is lovely, but why would I pay Goodwill $7.99 for it used when Wally has it for $8.99?

Questions questions. So many questions.

Keiko Nakamura is right when he says there are a number of factors affecting the retail environment, The Mayor can’t agree more. But when you start off with free shit, add some free labour, and top it off with free government cheese, only to run your stores into the ground, it makes The Mayor think: are you an actual businessman, Nakamura, because it sure sounds like you’re more of a guy who is the former head of Toronto Community Housing who was fired from the city agency in 2011 in the fallout from a spending scandal.

Oh right….my bad.

Diary of Irresponsible Government

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

I was talking to some people in the laundry room in the apartment I live in. They are nice people. Both work in government, have great high paying, high pensioned jobs, and a short commute down the subway line from home to office. As far as commuting goes, they only need to be in the office for meetings. They do their work from home; they have a home office which they use as a tax write off. They grumble about commuting, a bit. It is awkward to reschedule meetings around their vacations, days off, and preferred commuting time. Meetings should start some time after ten thirty, and be over by two. The subway, the northy southy Yonge line, gets busy otherwise. Some of the people on the subway smell bad. Others are rude: standing in the door, hogging seats with packages, or making a mess while eating like zoo animals. But taking one of their cars to work is worse. It is difficult to park in their reserved parking spot, both at the office and in the heated garage of their apartment building. They use their car to travel to the farm they bought. They plan to retire to the farm when early retirement happens at 55; otherwise, they just head out there for weekends and some vacations. But commuting is not what interested me about these people: it was the buttons the lady of the house was putting back onto a vest. Political buttons.

Nuclear disarmament is a issue dear to the hearts of my apartment neighbors. I agree, I said to them. I do not trust the government or military with nuclear weapons. The neighbor lady had several anti nuclear buttons on her vest of protest. She wears here protest vest when she attends those lunch time protests that happen in down town Toronto. I warmed up to my neighbor. To have such a feeling of social responsibility. To brave the smelly zoo animals that infest the subway system in order to protest. To push forward the agenda of the Statists! Yay! More statism means more work, pensions, department staff, and perks for statists! Nobody in the media calls this self serving, so it cannot be self serving.

I know from my work in Human Resources that finding common ground is the first step to conflict resolution. Hushing up problems is a big part of Human Resources. Just like the statist media ignores the pervert who created the sex education curriculum, so too a good HR person conceals, distracts, and obfuscates. You can persecute your personal enemies, ex-lovers, and career rivals. How does this relate to Nuclear Disarmament? It does not! Unless you have nuclear weapons in your garage. Then you would be wise to be like the wise HR fascists and not tell anybody! If you keep your personal nuclear weapons in an underground bunker you have dug yourself (or with a friend) you would not tell anybody, either. The statist media would not much care, even if one of your underground bunkers was found. Why do the journalism thing when it is beyond your logical capabilities, conflicts with the narrative you are fabricating, or otherwise casts shadows on your fairy cake world?

Prospectin’

Friday, April 27th, 2012

“…taken around 1900…shows an old prospector and his cabin…working in the Pike’s Peak area of Colorado.”

“That stove could have been used to heat his gold. They did use mercury to remove gold dust from the ore. Then they would heat the gold/mercury mixture to vaporize the mercury and just leave the gold.  They learned that it was a very dangerous practice if they happed[ed] to inhale the fumes. By the way they still use mercury to remove gold from the ore. Gold dust will attach itself to the mercury and is a lot easier to recover then.  And that little black canister might contain mercury…”

Mitchieville under attack

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

Regular commenter dmorris is in some hot water over at this post *.

Lacking substance, the ouiji board is out and the various and sundry free market censors are censoring. O, how a lack of government spending on thought control is bad.

Fenris Badwulf caring person

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

I am filled with angst and tears course down my cheeks in my capacity as over paid, over pensioned, and over benefited Overgroupleader of Human Resources here in Mitchieville. Every reporting period sad tales of human degradation cross my desk; forms are filled, and government checks fly like snow from the Mount Olympus of Money, the marbled palace of the Gods of Those Who Tax and Spend. What could be sweeter to those who eat other people’s honey than to discover a new need that calls out for a new program?

Fat Bastard Socialism

Monday, November 7th, 2011

I was shocked to see the state media uproar over a hockey announcer being offered an honorary degree at Canada’s token military university, RMC *. I was astounded to learn that some of the faculty at RMC were offended, fat bastard socialist style, at such a controversial figure as a television commentator would be given a degree. Faculty at a military college? Activists? Fat bastard socialists?

The Daily Beggar

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Toronto is crawling with beggars. Now they roam the side streets just off the main drags: if you are sitting on your porch a block to the north of Danforth (on Strathmore, say), there will be beggars, walking down the street asking you for smokes, money for food, and spitting when they get neither. Fat beggars sit in chairs outside of coffee shops, smoking premium smokes and asking for money. Rasta beggars stand in front of chicken joints. And whores offer up their bodies along the Danforth.

Begging is a great way to get me to give up smoking. It is a filthy habit, but just makes you a target for the eight AM beggar, his eyes red from … anger over the vestiges of Colonialism in Africa … to hit you up for a smoke. Maybe if I do not smoke they won’t beg from me.

Begging is a great way to illustrate the failure of social spending. All these parasites are begging because they do not get enough money, right? After some decades of spending, the problem is worse, not better. More spending will make it worse.

It is not that homelessness is a crime
, it is that criminals tend to be homeless. And for the Jack the Ripper culture out there (all white people are serial killers, don’t you know) it is only a matter of time for the one or two (who really is every whitie) to discover the rich harvest you can take in for enjoyment quick, or slow if you have a van, dungeon, and queer village bondage gear. Would the police notice if Jack the Ripper was harvesting the homeless, given that the leftist media is always attacking the cops, and you cannot squeeze much more attack out of always?

Nobody cares. If they did, the leftist media would talk about it. Everybody I talk to, shop owners, shop workers, commuters, neighbors who avoid the porch, do care and do talk. But they are right white wing extremists, except for the 100 percent who are not, as everybody I talk to is not white. Maybe I live in a Potemkin village where the darkies are paid agents of white privilege. Maybe not.

I, Fenris Badwulf, wrote this. I care.

The Sleeping Sword

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

What happens when you mix resistant Gonorrhea * , promiscuous queers, multiculturalism, and an ability challenged health care system? Well, nothing: in a country without free speech, you cannot criticize the tribalism that is multiculturalism, you cannot associate bad with gay, and our health care professionals are angels of any god but Christ. So, the only people I know that talk about this mixture, are those that do so out of the earshot of a progressive informer (rat, in non-ebonic); and it is a property to those people in the know that they are also pretty much immune to the implications. But I will anyway; I care; I will use parables and difficult grammar which will trip up the ability challenged, judgement lawsuit greedy progressives.

Revisiting Leaderless Resistance

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

Leaderless Resistance is a controversial concept. The man who described it, Louis Beam *, is an evil white man. Most groups who have used it for resistance are cutie pie leftist organizations, as the wikipedia article mentions * (because, as every comrade knows, enviro terrorism is neither hate nor terror). You can read Louis’ essay yourself. And when you do, you will learn that the lone wolf activist figures things out for himself. So you will not find Fenris Badwulf telling you how to make an atomic bomb out of a smoke detector * * . Instead, I want to talk about the great Pyramid of the Statists.

Darker Counsel

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

A good friend of mine is in the dumps. He calls it depression. He is saddened, he is tired, he is filled with woe. I lack the crafty words to tell him he is not depressed. My friend needs darker counsel to cure his woeful spirits. He is having his shrine of skulls moment, and, as a friend, I should be bringing a few around, some incense, some paint, maybe, and pitching in.
