    As a shareholder I expect and demand them to refrain from any perceived activism. My financial stake is dependent on product success which requires them to do nothing to damage or isolate any segment of the market which encompasses beliefs and views of all kinds.

    Who freakin' cares what Coca Cola does?

    Why were they a member of such a PAC in the first place?

    Truly First World Problems.

    We would all be healthier to avoid all soft drinks.

    What he said. It made good sense to me they backed out of something that did not have to do with making or selling Coke.

    Interested to see what coke is doing though.

    I stopped drinking Coke when I saw what it can do to rust on a bolt. I never could let that stuff sit in my stomach again. It does great as a hydraulic fluid remover from my uniforms though!

    Not really....It just doesn't open on the direct link. When the page opens, you can click on the Coke article at the bottom of the page.

    While I agree sodas are pretty bad for you (I drink none), you should see what stomach acid will do to a bolt!
