People Who Trade Arms Don't Care That You Don't Drink Coke


This was something a friend of mine at university either said or wrote down somewhere, and I remembered it again today. It makes me laugh because it's so true and cynical.

(I think) the point is that some people will not drink Coke as a protest against whatever, but there are bigger problems in the world and the protest won't really make any difference to anything important, so maybe you should just enjoy the Coke.

haha we had exactly those sorts of comments at Sussex as well when we pushed through a motion to stop selling Coke products in our bars and shops... McDonalds always springs to mind for me though, how they made a loss for the first year ever and suddenly changed up and started offering salads and all sorts - shows that collectively people can make a difference. Even if it's McDonalds.

It is shameful that Coke would sponsor a gun. Does anyone know if Pepsi did the same?

So I spent a few min/ seconds trying to find out what coke has suposedly done I didn't see anything.
Personally I think they dont enforce the gun laws we have in the US so why make more.
What did coke suposedly do ??
just curious I will still drink coke anyway. Oh and pepsi tastes different than coke in case you didn't know :)

i dont think they are suppose to relate. i guess they had some involvement with the nazis but mostly its just that bad things will still happen even if u boycott coke for the bad things they do. which may not include trading arms heh.
you could say Satan doesn't care that you dont drink coke.
the infected vessel on ur ass doesnt care that you don't drink coke.

pepsi probably cares a bit tho
