One of the greatest days in my life was when I went down to the Earl's Gas station in town and found them selling KING SIZE COKE!
One of the saddest days was when Coca Cola got rid of real sugar and added corn syrup to Coke.
My uncle Alley, a corn farmer, thought is was great however. We just raised wheat and cotton so it didn't help us none. Recently, I was really happy when a large Mexican Mercado opened down the street selling pure cane sugar Coke in bottles. Of course being a diabetic my consumption is strictly limited.
As I grew up my understanding of Jesus did too. Unfortunately my concept of Coke did not change fast enough.
Jesus became Grace.
Now Coke has become Greed.
How much is enough?
Coke wants the Health Reform Bill killed and is putting $$$ millions in all sorts of places to do so.
Why? How much money do you need? You can double the cost of a coke and they would still sell. But if it is in tax, Coke won't get any of it. Is that it?
My faith in Jesus is still intact, how be it somewhat more mature than when King Size Coke was introduced. But my admiration for Coke is diminished by their stance that profits are more important than the health of our Nation. Seems short sighted to me. The longer people live the more Coke they could drink. I thought about buying some stock and then telling them about my long term idea, but then I found out it was a family owned outfit?
Diet Dr. Pepper is my can of choice these days.
(No, No, Dr. Pepper is not bottled by Coke, No NO!)
