food corporations

8

you’ve all heard of ghost hunger, now get ready for ghost dining, ghost snacking, ghost feasting. Ghost products and services. Ghost consumerism. Mass ghost food corporations. Ghost capitalism

You live in a world where starvation was stopped completely by magic, food spawning bags. The bags’ magic only wears off once the label indicating what food it creates is removed/unreadable. A once massive food corporation decides to break the law and hire agents to remove the labels for their own profit.

The complete history of Donald Trump’s forgotten cameos in fast food commercials

  • On Thursday, Trump found out that his love for McDonald’s might be unrequited.
  • It was a scandal that lasted seconds: Without any prior warning, after its usual tweets about McDonald’s fries, the fast food giant’s corporate Twitter account tweeted — and deleted — a critique of Trump’s leadership and, well, hand size.
  • Let’s use this moment to reflect on happier, lesser known times: Donald Trump’s long, long history with burgers, soda, pizza and other trans-fat-soaked goodness.
  • Before Trump was president, before he hawked immigration bans and Paul Ryan’s healthcare dream, before he proposed a complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States, Donald Trump was something of a fast food celebrity. Read more. (3/18/17, 6:40 AM)

The Queen of I-75

(OR: This Never Would Have Happened at Dairy Queen)

—So uh, there is historical precedent that says the easiest way to get me to write something for you is to shower me with compliments and then drop a prompt on me while batting your eyelashes, so… this is @queensandkingsofattolia‘s fault (with a bit of @wolf-thecontradictorysentence as well). based on/inspired by this post

I wrote almost 2000 words in a little under 5 hours while working my customer service job, so here, enjoy this customer service AU in which no customers are served.

Irene has been the manager of the McDonald’s on the I-75 exit since she was 17 years old, and if Nahuseresh thinks he’s going to take over this restaurant like he did the Long John Silver’s across the way, he’s got another thing coming.

She stares into Kamet’s longsuffering face and says, “Does he think I like you better or something? I’m still not signing anything for him.”

Kamet doesn’t look like he thinks anyone likes him at all, much less that they could like him more than his charming, handsome boss. “He just wanted me to deliver a message,” he says tiredly. Kamet doesn’t get paid enough for this. Kamet doesn’t get paid enough for the job he was actually hired to do, which was frying hushpuppies. Playing messenger in Nahuseresh’s game of fast food corporate intrigue was never in the paperwork.

“Speak,” Irene commands.

Post-Graduation Headcanons

Early Careers

  • Shinomya offers Souma the head chef position at his newest restaurant, Shino’s New York. After a few years in Manhattan, he moves to Paris and opens a reprise of Restaurant Yukihira. 
  • Doujima hires Megumi as his second in command and grooms her into the next head of the Tōtsuki Resorts empire. She divides her time between Tokyo and the newest Tōtsuki luxury hotel in Honolulu. 
  • Immediately after graduation, Takumi returns home to Tuscany to further his mastery of Italian cuisine. A year later, not wanting to be bested by Souma, he moves to New York and opens Ristorante Aldini only a few blocks away from Shino’s. 
  • Following in the footsteps of her idol, Saiba Jouichiro, Erina spends her first few years after graduation cooking in all of the world’s finest restaurants. She also acts as a guest judge for various cooking shows and regularly writes articles for elite culinary magazines. 
  • Right after graduation, Alice goes to Copenhagen (with Ryo in tow, of course) and opens her first avant-garde restaurant, Deconstruct Denmark. It becomes an overnight success and she immediately starts working towards a three-star rating. 
  • As a graduation present, Alice buys Ryo the pub where they met and he proceeds to turn it into a world class eatery. Also, thanks to Alice’s constant meddling, he becomes Instagram famous for both his cooking and his intense workout routine. 
  • Instead of opening a restaurant right away, Hayama accepts an executive position at the Haubi Food Corporation, working at the right hand of Sendawara Natsume. After saving up enough money to make sure Jun and the Shiomi Lab will be taken care of forever, he opens a restaurant in London and a research facility in Dubai. He’s the first member of the 92nd generation to become a self-made millionaire. 
  • Hoping to combine her passions for food and medicine, Hisako becomes a culinary consultant for the World Health Organization. She ends up pursuing an advanced degree in nutritional science and is poised to become the first member of the 92nd generation to earn a PhD. (Erina is sooooo proud) 
  • When Takumi heads to New York, Isami takes over as head chef of Trattoria Aldini. After a few years, he decides to open a vineyard. He now splits his time between the family restaurant and his budding winery. 
  • Ikumi moves to LA and opens a casual beach-side eatery that specializes in donburi and meat-centered snacks. The restaurant becomes quite trendy and Ikumi is constantly asked by her customers to act in indie films and pose in photo shoots.  

pretending to love capitalism on job applications is exhausting

Ask yourself this most important question!

Why were GMOs very quietly but deliberately unleashed onto America’s grocery shelves in the mid 1990’s without OUR knowledge and consent?

I have yet to find a legitimate answer to this question, no matter how much I get trolled by Monsanto’s minions on social media.

It is no coincidence that big biotech, major food corporations, and government agencies like the FDA, USDA and EPA are no longer trusted by a majority of Americans. Would you rely on people that have intentionally poisoned you for decades? Why would anyone blindly put their trust in corporations and governments who have proven beyond all reasonable doubt that they are paid liars like the media that sells those lies to you every second of every day?

Where are the most basic questions about GMO health and environmental safety that any rational individual can ask? I can tell you that the answers are NOT found in any 90 day, short-term rat health study that big biotech like Monsanto passes off to the FDA for rubberstamp approval! Why were these GMOs so quickly approved by a government agency that is supposed to protect us?

What about our Congress? The DARK Act was passed by both the senate and house. Then, the backstabbing of consumers (that’s all of us) was given a final jab at the hearts of all Americans when our Traitor-in-Chief signed the DARK Act that our elected leaders passed, despite the fact that about 90% of Americans wanted and still want transparent GMO labeling. You will hear the same old, tired excuses from food companies that it costs too much to change a label, but they do it whenever they ship their GMO, poison-laden food products overseas. They have to; otherwise, their GMO junk will never make it further than a Boston tea party.

Why don’t the corporations that ship food and beverages to foreign countries every day at least label these genetically modified products that are made in the U.S.A.? Doesn’t it seem a bit suspicious to you that these same major corporations, like Coca Cola and Kraft, funneled millions of dollars to the Grocery Manufacturers Association, or GMA, to defeat GMO labeling laws in Colorado, Washington State, Oregon and California (twice)? In the meantime, biotech brat Monsanto stole Vermont’s GMO labeling law, and turned it into a weak federal labeling law (the DARK Act) that has the same eight, glaring loopholes in it that Vermont’s state GMO labeling bill had before our elected leaders and president deserted us, again, by signing this sinister act of American betrayal.

I am sure you are wondering at this point how much of what I stated is true. Where are the facts? They have been in front of you the entire time. I repeatedly point them out in my articles and social media posts. Other basic human rights activists have been doing the same for years. For big biotech, big Ag and big food, this is all just a money game. The losers in the end are the confused consumers who willingly keep shoving “glyphotoxic” (glyphosate and genotoxic) crap down their throats and also into the mouths of their children and grandchildren.

So, ask yourself all of the questions that I asked again, starting with the first one. Can you come up with any simple answers?

Or, maybe you already have that bitter taste of betrayal that consumes America’s barely beating heart.

-Calling Out Corruption

kazaklis  asked:

GMOs can be abused by corporations to punish farmers for not purchasing them (cross pollination legal issues), bring up ethical concerns (copyright on a living thing), lead to food waste (corporations banning farmers from saving seeds), & foster dependance on monocultures. There are plenty of reasons to be "anti-GMO" (or at least, anti-how they are currently used in society) besides "it has 'genetically modified' in the name and science is scary," though you're right that that's a shitty reason.

However, that falls more on capitalism and not the GMO itself. Focusing strictly on the food item, GMOs are safe for you. The corporations that distribute them tend to make unethical choices on distributing them.

Signs as Fast Food:

Aries: Panera (too expensive for what it is)

Taurus: Shake Shack (super underrated)

Gemini: Chick-Fil-A (good food but crazy corporation)

Cancer: Burger King (do people even go there anymore?)

Leo: Chipotle (tastes good but will give you E. coli)

Virgo: In-N-Out (only easily available to some people)

Libra: Burgerville (few even know how good it is)

Scorpio: McDonald’s (drunk food)

Sag: Subway (is only pretending to be good for you)

Capricorn: Arby’s (gross)

Aquarius: Taco Bell (stoner food)

Pisces: Domino’s (always delivers)

Can we try to distinguish foods from the corporations that process/manufacture and distribute them? 

Kraft is evil, dairy is not. 

Coca-Cola is evil, sugar is not.

Monsanto is evil, GMOs are not.

I know the nuance machine is REAL broke when it comes to beliefs around food, but if we care about addressing actual abuses and public health issues, we have to hold the corporations responsible for their evils without shifting the blame onto consumers or products.

You’ve heard of …

Coca Cola’s attempt to sell more soda by slapping random names on the bottle

Now get ready for…

Mentos awkwardly trying to teach people how to be friends (and make utter fools out of themselves in public)
