3. The time has come to end "trophy" hunting.

Habitat destruction is driving these animals to the brink of extinction. Killing them for "sport" makes no sense.

What sickens me is the blood lust of these so-called hunters. That silly grin plastered across the CEO's face and his thumbs up gesture tells me that he is just another mindless, murdering thug with a winchester penis.

16. 👍👍 +1000

BRAVO!!!

These are assholes who feel entitled. They're successful business people who feel they can fuck or kill anything they want, living without empathy or compassion for any critter or mostly anyone.

4. I've been boycotting Jimmy John's since they started requiring non-competes.

From SANDWICH MAKERS.

Making new hires sign agreements that if they quit or get fired, they won't work in another sandwich shop for a year or some dumb shit like that.

It's a form of employee intimidation and control, nothing more.

Any outfit that will sink to that, I'm never surprised to find out what other assholery they're up to.

disgustedly,
Bright

So there's no reason to go to his place.

9. Non-competes for low wage workers is absolutely deplorable

since that blocks them out of way too many jobs. There are many restaurants that sell sandwiches. Cities will have a lot within 2 miles of a jimmy johns and being blocked out for 2 years is a crippling financial hit.

NY State made them stop it

6. If anyone wants to print out some photos of this jerk and put them under windshield wipers

in some cars in the parking lot I'd support you in spirit.

I've wanted to do that for a while but I've had some physical problems that I have been dealing with lately and it has stopped me.

I suggest wearing a hat with a mask to keep all the cameras at bay.

18. I'd never heard of them before either, there must not be any around here

But after reading this earlier, I saw a commercial for them for the first time last night.

22. That's an odd coincidence.

I have been having a ton during the past week for some reason. Synchronicity?

23. That struck me too, since I had never heard of them or seen them before

But I remembered this post on DU.

10. Trigger Warning Please!

I will not watch the video, and would not have opened this thread.

I don't eat Jimmy Johns food anyway.

14. Jersey Mike's makes a far better sandwich.

We have both chains in my town, very, very close to each other.

19. I've never been to one

Almost never go out for a sandwich. When I do it's usually a meatball sub at Subway.
