trappedspirit: Anthracite: It would never happen in Nebraska. We give food away all the time.

Who is 'we'?  All grocery store owners?  Or all Nebraskans?


Both Nebraskans.

Amos Quito:
I wonder what would happen if Sun Trust Bank were evicted? Would they throw all the cash dumpsters and haul it to the incinerator?

No, they'd get a public bail out, fire most of their staff and then the elites would give themselves bonus checks and pay raises while jacking user fees and complaining about 'socialisms'.

Bathia_Mapes: Steinbeck described similar food wasting in "The Grapes of Wrath". Oranges sprayed with kerosene, pigs killed & dumped in ditches after which they're doused with quicklime, potatoes dumped in the river. All because the landowners decided since they wouldn't be profiting from their crops/livestock, they'd be damned if they would let hungry people have them for free.


I've changed my mind.

The people who decided to throw the food away rather than let somebody eat it deserve to be tied up in the bottom pit of an outhouse and everyone who donates food to the local food bank gets a chance to relieve themselves in said outhouse if they so choose.

doglover: rewind2846: Hence LAWSUITS. SHOULD BE OUTLAWED.

I agree. Let's roll up all the lawyers in a big ball of twine and roll 'em into Canada and done with it.



Why do you hate Canada?

The only thing they'd let the poor eat were their grapes.

Free soup never helped anyone grow bootstraps, comrade.

Speaking from experience, it is difficult to find a charity that will take unwanted perishables or prepared food.  However, I find it hard to believe that they couldn't have found a home for non-edibles and non-perishables.  Needless waste hurts everybody.

doglover: Whoever decided to throw out the food into the landfill deserves to have their whole body slathered in icy hot with a double layer over the groin.



FTA: "Teresa Russell, chief deputy with the Marshal's Office, said the landlord, SunTrust Bank, was paying to have the displaced merchandise hauled away."


BANKERS. Should we be surprised?


Screw the Icy Hot. Bathe them in stinging nettle juice.
