Fuck darden restaurants. all of them. As of May 27, 2012, the Company operated, through its subsidiaries, 1,994 restaurants in the United States and Canada. In the United States, it operated 1,964 restaurants in all 50 states, including 674 Red Lobster, 786 Olive Garden, 386 LongHorn Steakhouse, 46 The Capital Grille, 30 Bahama Breeze, 23 Seasons 52, 11 Eddie V's restaurants, and two specialty restaurants: Hemenway's Seafood Grille & Oyster Bar and The Old Grist Mill Tavern. In Canada, Darden operated 33 restaurants, including 27 Red Lobster and six Olive Garden restaurants. Through subsidiaries, the Company owns and operates all of its restaurants in the United States and Canada, except three restaurants, which are located in Central Florida and are owned by joint ventures managed by Darden. On October 1, 2007, Darden acquired RARE Hospitality International, Inc. Hemenway's Seafood Grille & Oyster Bar was sold in July 2009.

Of course they did. Instead of just either raising the medicaid income cutoff level, or go for universal with their supermajority, the gov sold us out to the very people we have grown to hate.

The real problem is that while Darden is against this, they are big enough to absorb the costs. Many of the smaller guys (and much better food I may add) will not be able to.

More drowning out of the competition. Fascism fuckin sucks.

That's not possible; while white folks are headed for Atlantic Fresh (and still squirming) Seafood, black America is flocking to Red Lobster; truth. I'm just not believin' this.
