We LOVE to give Starbucks a hard time here at Clash, but this is ridiculous.
Frankly, there are bigger (and nastier!) health issues at play in Starbucks that would make us think twice about going there. We didn’t need any freaking ‘judge’s ruling’.
But for some dumb reason, we love to get judges involved in every little area of our lives. And so they have.
The same people who will probably cheer the male birth control pill (not even kidding) was upset about a chemical used in the roasting process.
So they got the courts involved.
(Of course they did.)
A judge ruled that Starbucks and other coffee sellers in California must provide a cancer warning on their products for customers.
[…] Attorneys for about 90 companies said the chemical is present in the process, but that it’s at harmless levels and is outweighed by the benefits of drinking a cup of coffee.
The ruling came despite eased concerns in recent years about the possible dangers of coffee, with some studies finding health benefits. In 2016, the International Agency for Research on Cancer – the cancer agency of the World Health Organization – moved coffee off its “possible carcinogen” list.
Not only was it moved OFF the carcinogen list… it is hailed in numerous studies for various ANTI-Cancer health benefits. Ten specific cancers are named on this list alone.

When it’s time to pack up and move on, even Col Davy Crockett knew where his next destination should be.
“A gentleman from Nacogdoches, in Texas, informs us, that, whilst there, he dined in public with col. Crockett, who had just arrived from Tennessee. The old bear-hunter, on being toasted, made a speech to the Texians, replete with his usual dry humor. He began nearly in this style: “I am told, gentlemen, that, when a stranger, like myself, arrives among you, the first inquiry is – what brought you here? To satisfy your curiosity at once to myself, I will tell you all about it. I was, for some years, a member of congress. In my last canvass, I told the people of my district, that, if they saw fit to re-elect me, I would serve them as faithfully as I had done; but, if not, they might go to h__, and I would go to Texas. I was beaten, gentlemen, and here I am.” The roar of applause was like a thunder-burst. [Louisville Journal.
That sums up the Texan Spirit beautifully.
And now, you can wear it on a shirt.
Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the Gents:
