What's the big deal?



What's the big deal?

Today I just had to go to Starbuck's to do research on just what it is that our devoted Far Right countrymen are so upset about. Well, there she is the Starbuck buck-naked mermaid right there on my cup. Obviously taken from an ancient woodcut from some Celtic culture and I can't see what all the whoop la is about. Golly gee whiz...now how many mermaids have you seen wearing a blouse, coat or even a wet T-shirt? Good for you but I haven't seen any. A mermaid is a mermaid is a mermaid. Those antiquainted hill billy Bible toting righteous folk really need to get a life! Come on! We have 70,000 + dead in Mynmar and thousands in China, poverty throughout the planet, polar bears becoming extinct, a stupid war in Iraq and these folks are raising hell about the boobs on a Starbuck's cup? Give me a break!

But don't you see? It's a half nekkid woman being "sold" to raise money for a US company. Can't possibly have that, now....

If only that is what the objection was about!
