Default Panera Cares Learns That Socialism Doesn't

I couldn't decide between putting this here, or in the "Social Woes" category...

But who wouldn't (and who didn't) see this coming?

Panera opens a number of "Panera Cares" stores, where they ask patrons for a "suggested donation", and there's no fixed price on the items.

Well, the predictable happens...

Please explain how this is socialism over simply being a charity.

It seem like most of the people who throw the word "socialism" around don't really know what it means. They just like to use it because all the cool kids are saying it.

They're just parroting whatever the Cheeto-in-Chief, and his Faux Noise cheerleaders say.

And often the ones who claim they do know what it is, lie about it.

This pretty much sums it up:

how about you just explain what you mean instead of using a dumb meme image I could just as easily put capitalism under or government or anything else honestly. How about you explain rather than expecting us to infer your meaning and have you mock us when we didn't psychically know what you meant.

Speaking of bakeries. Panera was the only place I could find for sale the bread you can use as a soup bowl.

I Did a bacon corn chowder in the instapot that was amazing.

All hail the instapot!
AL HAIL THE INSTAPOT!!!!
