One of the fascinating things I see here is, what appears to be, the local non-Mormon reaction to the Mormons. I see a large community of Lefty Fundamentalists who have created the secular anti-thesis to Mormonism. Lefty Fundamentalism is a lifestyle (wine, trips to Europe, foreign cars, etc) and a set of taboos (WalMart, MacDonald's, Bush and Haliburton)
The proof of the pudding is the one taboo that both religious groups have in common.
Starbucks is coffee, a taboo for the Mormons. Starbucks is a successful global corporation, a taboo for the Lefty Fundamentalists.
Side-note: When I first used Lefty
Fundamentalism in 2003, there were no Googles on that combination of
words. Today, there are 17,000 Googles.
I know that there aren't 17,000 places where the words are combined but the two words are getting closer and closer together in Internet writing.
