Starbucks Makes It Easy to Join Obama’s "Civilian National Security Force"

This is a two-part post because zapatista brought up a different angle on this, so I had to do some checking elsewhere on the net. I like the Alex Jones show, but hopefully the article was'nt sensationalized to grab ones attention.

Starbucks: “Are You In” Obama’s Civilian National Security Force?

Starbucks wants to make it easy to join Obama’s proposed paramilitary brown shirt volunteers. “Starbucks will honor each person who pledges with a free tall brewed coffee beginning Wednesday, Jan. 21 through Sunday, Jan. 25. The goal of the effort is to raise pledges in excess of one million hours of service from all over the country,” a Starbucks press releases states.
Starbucks wants to “make it easy to participate in the President-elect’s call for national service.” Back in September, the Christian Science Monitor reported that Obama plans to “leverage volunteerism in communities across the country” and make government “cool again.”

Fortunately, a lot of people are beginning to realize government is never cool, as the founders warned a couple hundred years ago.

I want to add this other article in relation to what zapatista brought up, thanks zapatista.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS | Staff writer Emi Endo contributed to this report.
January 15, 2009
Starbucks Corp. said yesterday that it is asking its customers to donate five hours of time to their communities as part of an initiative timed to coincide with President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration.

Customers who fill out a pledge card - available in stores - to give five hours of time to a local volunteer opportunity of their choice will receive a free tall brewed coffee Jan. 21-25, a $1.79 value.

The initiative comes as Obama, who called during his presidential campaign for a renewed commitment to community service, takes office Tuesday.

Starbucks said it is partnering with HandsOn Network, a nonprofit organization that attempts to bolster volunteerism, for the program. Starbucks said it hopes to raise pledges for more than 1 million hours of service through the campaign, called "I'm In."

Through the HandsOn Network site, volunteers can search for opportunities in their neighborhoods.

One Long Island organization listed is Island Harvest, in Mineola, which collects and distributes food for the hungry.

Randi Shubin Dresner, the group's president and chief executive, welcomed the chance to draw additional volunteers, which she called a "mainstay for our organization."

Volunteers are needed to sort and move food and answer phones, she said - even if they can't commit that much time.

"A program like this is very timely," she said.

Turn this bucket of horse manure back on them

By joining in the Committee of Safety Movement as your voluntary public service.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

My thought exactly

Beat them at their own game

Any takers out there to spend 5 hours cleaning my yard for ...

$1.79?? Oh, yeah; I'll throw in all the coffee you can drink, too! Going once - going twice ...

Too bad he just didn't come out and say the CIA and Mossad

Are involved in both Gaza and this new 'terror attack'.

Excuse My Subtle Amusement A Bit

But, any thing that Obama does, will and has been marked "null 'n void upon arrival"! He's a dead President before he starts.
... ... ...
The "scary" part comes into play when he tries to validate himself.

Give us back our money guy's

I can't wait for dumb soccer moms standing in line at a closed store." Surely they will be open soon ",will be there cry.

Starbucks is over

Man just think a company that cut it,s own throat in a depression.....real smart.

Do you have impression that Obama is not wildy popular?

You should get that looked at.

what did they do to "cut their own throat"?

They'll want a bail-out

after all...they're too lame to fail.

WHERE"S the VIDEO of Starbuck's Uniform w/ ss swastika armbands!

Need someone to make a Video.

You know, the Coffee giant employee in his pretty Brown Shirt Uniform with his Red SS German Swastika Arm Band looking all pretty an nice. Asking the youth of our country to rethink Hitler's Plan.

Would be too funny.. OR should I say embarrassing for Starbaby Bucks! LOL

I

personally can't see how anyone would drink their coffee in the first place. It plain sucks and is way over priced. I prefer to go to my local gas station or Cumby's .They have better coffee and cheaper prices. Dunkin Donuts sucks too. Be prepared for them to do the same thing as Starbucks. Maybe even McDonald's ,Burger King ,Taco Bell and the list goes on. Of course all the sheeple will sign up just for a free cup of coffee. To hell with community service. Let the people on welfare be made to do it,not the working Americans. Too many people on welfare sitting around on their asses getting a free ride, let them pay back by doing community service for nothing!!!

What?

.
I agree with your assessment of Starbucks coffee. Too strong, too dark and often bitter. And way, way overpriced. Impressive marketing in the past, however - they started a trend of coffee houses in the U.S.

But when you say Dunkin Donuts (coffee) sucks, you go too far! I love their coffee best of all. It's a great morning blend. Maybe the best I ever had.

Step outside rp and we'll duel.

That's 35 cents an hour.

Oh hypocritical liberals.

It's just a "local volunteer opportunity."

That includes the crisis pregnancy center, private food bank, Friend's of the Library book sales, and shoveling old peoples' driveways (in my town there are volunteers for that--you call the city police, and they call the volunteers). I'm about to spend 4 days helping out with a FOL book sale as I do every year. Maybe this year Starbucks will treat me to a venti decaf Americano for doing it. I plan to check.

P.S. My work at the book sale is not altogether altruistic. I get first dibs on the books as they come out of the boxes!! Plus I just like handling books.

Well, that cures me...

I am now officially boycotting them.

they're tanking anyway

This unprecedented zionist company needs to tank. The biggest liberal creator in America and one of the biggest donor of Israel.
Instead get your natural organic coffee and other nutrients from places like enerfood or nutiva.

are they really a huge

are they really a huge contributor to israel??

i've been told that before but i have ignored it for 4 years!!

Wow

Wow, I guess they were correct in stating that Obama's supporters were "Latte Liberals"

starbucks isn't just a little coffee shop

It is a corporate and political whore.

I went on their website and I can find no direct indication..

.. that this is an Obama thing. How can/should we deduce that it is? Because of the dates of the offer? Because they coincide with the inauguration. How does The Government play into this.. Who does Starbucks give the info of our volunteerism too? In other words how does signing on to 'Starbucks' plan of mass volunteerism and comunity service lead to a national security force ala Obama militia? The dots.. if there.. are quite hidden and decisive.

Do you remember Starbuck's last volunteerism campaign...

during the Bush administration ? Neither do I.

Although this effort may have no official ties to the new administration, it's hard to fathom how one could not think this campaign is not a symbolic or sympathetic gesture towards the Obama administrations political ambitions. Seriously.

Starbucks has dropped out of my top ten stops for coffee !

For the past year I have been doing some research on Starbucks. I've noticed biased circumstances not only surrounding the local establishments but the actual management and operations of the Starbucks Corporation. I've looked into anything from the logo picture to ownership and history background.
The past few months questionable yellow and red lights have been popping up. This post is another topic that I will be checking into. Until I am able to clear up many questions and actions by this company at every level I have decided to cease my daily cup of java or two.
I've had relatives and friends who have wrorked with or in this company who have had many concerns to the activities that would raise eyebrows if it would hit the media. All my friends for legitimate reasons have resigned their positions to move on to freedom jobs.
I will leave it at that for now, until I complete my research. As for fellow patriots, I suggest that you set standards for freedom making decisions in every aspect of your life. Do not allow individuals, groups, companies, politicians, etc. condition your thinking to the corruption that has infiltrated freedom. Take a stand. Each and every person taking a stand can make a difference in taking our country back for freedom and liberties sake.
As far as the volunteer issue. I have seen first hand businesses and companies abuse the honest volunteers time and help for their own cause. Volunteer is another word that has been used for greed and gain for companies and organizations through out this land. It is time we weed out such groups. Be sure of your decisions. Do not base decisions on a wind of doctrine.

You're not the only one

But I've only gotten strange looks so I don't talk about Starbucks. It's been a sacred cow to so many for some "strange" reason. It's never been straight, from day 1.

Just the reactions for mentioning it sounds alarm bells for me. Don't mess with the beloved Starbucks lol. So I don't ever talk about it.

Glad to know someone else has noticed the symbolism exposes it.

Care to elaborate on what you've discovered ?

I'd like to hear more of what you've learned about Starbucks.

Starbucks is where I go if there aren't any local coffee shop options. I really prefer not to give them my business at all. It is the coffee of last resort. Their drip coffee is nasty and the predatory nature towards independent shops is disturbing. The one upside of this economic Titanic that our government has created, is that Starbucks is taking a hit and closing stores.

As for volunteering it's a beautiful and important thing. In the current context however, it's a very loaded word- not without political implication nor ramifications. I live in a liberal neighborhood, it was a sea of Obama bumper stickers during the election cycle. I wonder how long it will take for the "brown shirts" to come door to door signing folks up ?

Tell us more about what you've learned.

Article Title is Misleading and Ridiculous

This is a call to *volunteer* for a private organization. As long as Obama, Bush, Clinton, Reagan, whoever ask for volunteers to make our community better I have no problem with that. The article title is completely ridiculous.

JOhn

I would'nt make up a title like that either

That is the title of the first article from AJ's web site. I also included a second article that puts a different angle on the whole thing. I'm only posting what is written. I don't twist articles. Please read zapasista's post about it.
