Um... probably still at Starbucks?

Just a guess though.

Never been in a Starbutts in my Life

My coffee is Strong,Black and usually comes from either a gas station or a doughnut shop. I have no desire to drink a frappylactachino or anything else of the sort. Just Coffee please.

Gas Station? Donut Shop? Strong?

I've never found a gas station, donut shop nor mini-mart that knows how in the hell to brew a cup of coffee. Driving across the country even...

They all think that 1.25 oz. of coffee to 12 cups will suffice...yuck! Black water. Even Dunkin' sucks. I can always count on Starbucks to both provide me with the strong Coffee I want and to over charge me in the process. Never had one of those foo-foo kinds though.

Coffee needs oil floating on the top...

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

Never been to a Dunkin Doughnut store

I usually stop at Grannies Doughnuts and or Chevron.

Just sayin'...

One might consider me a "hardcore anarcho-capitalist" ,about as far from "liberal yuppy" as one can get...yet I sit here with a pumpkin spice latte in my hand. It's fantastic and I carry no shame for enjoying this wonderful free market treat!

I stopped supporting the corporate coffee phonies

After they came out against the 2nd amendment. I invested in making better coffee in cool reusable cups at home.
It is still tempting to stop by s-Bux and hang out with the trendies, but I try to do my part to starve the corporate borgs and grow and buy local whenever I can.

Why is starbucks thought of as "liberal" anyways?

They charge an hour's pay at minimum wage for a single cup of coffee and contribute to the Apartheid Israeli state.

CEOs who align their views

CEOs who align their views too closely with any highly divisive political issues are just bringing negative attention to their company, which could open them up to a lawsuit from shareholders if they are publicly held.

In the case of Starbucks, perhaps the CEOs views are so widely known that investors would already be aware of these potential liabilities.

Noticed this Leno quip:

"Con artists are using confusion over ObamaCare to sign people up for what they call fake health insurance. The scammers lure victims with false promises, they say stuff like, 'If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.'"

As to Starbucks, it's not as if the CEO is against Obamacare in principle, just criticizing how it's being executed.

LOL! They were already hurtin' because of Starbucks' open-carry

What would the Founders do?

You think they got a clue......


That they are (and have been) The Warmonger Party?

Please don't be mad if I say SHEEP..... Or, better yet, should that be GOAT?

Maybe they should change their symbol?

Crazy how idealists make the best fascists....
