Here, here, Elaine. The true colors of the people running this page are evidenced by the fact that they "review" (censor?) all submissions to this discussion group.

Bashing a successful captialist enterprise is simply the politically correct and popular thing to do (from a liberal, totalitarian point of view). Tolerance is in VERY short supply on the leftist side of the spectrum. Hypocracy is epidemic.

For instance, several years ago, McDonalds was the largest user of recycled and recyclable plastic products in the world (almost all of their packaging was r&r styrofoam). After suffering under a barrage of unjustified and untrue criticism for using plastic packaging, McD rushed to switch to coated (to prevent leakage) paper packaging which, at that time, was NOT recyclable. The anti-capitalists had succeeded!! Even at the cost of their environmental principles. This is VERY typical of the movement, and typical of leftists in general.
