If there is any justice in the world, the lions would take after my two housecats, and play with their food for a little bit before getting down to the killing and eating.

so this small coffee roaster in SF just turned down a $40.000 contract with Salesforce.com because they will not do business with companies that support Trump, ICE, and Trumps Immigration Policies. That 40k would buy them a two month supply of beans to roast.

In support I just placed an online order with them and attached an email supporting their stance and specifically stating that I hoped my purchase would help offset the revenue that they gave up.

As a non-drinker, I keep telling myself I should invest big time in coffee.

Except for the whole "kid with brain cancer" bit, and that throwing money at that foundation is not going to "beat" it any time soon.
geeez... "beating" cancer isnt binary.
even if you "cure" it in strict sense, you are still going to die anyways...

striving to provide the best, possible, times before dying is still a laudable goal, whether death comes from cancer, or a meteorite shower.

Albeit much of cancer "care" enriches the medical and drug establishments without improving, or degrading, quality of life.
