>>> I think we all need to start writing to Mickeysoft and telling them we don’t appreciate MSNBC and their propoganda and all the other libtard positions they take.

You’re not very up to date. Microsoft dumped it’s ownership share of the MSNBC network about five years ago. NBC bought them out. Microsoft retains only a share of msnbc.com.

“Mystic Monk” looks interesting but I’m interested in gift cards for poor relatives who could use the ability to pick up a coffee or a treat once in a while.

I will probably get Peet’s cards.

Depends on which desktop shell you use. I’m a Gnome fan myself, but KDE is equally functional and attractive.

The greatest part of Linux is that it’s supported by the community at large. There are no software engineers burning the midnight oil at the Apple or M$ megaplexes. These are enthusiasts who love the project and what they do, and given the evolution of Linux from clunky terminal to functional GUI’d desktop, I’d say there’s a lot of love for the Pingoo!

to all those who said “I have a friend and they are nice they just want to be married” and all that crap , well thank you for never speaking up, never being a conservative when claiming to be one and for those who said it’s just about civil unions , well you helped them to get this far because if they overturn DOMA then you can expect to see this perverted crap in the school, private schools, will be forced to teach it, all our laws will be focused on helping them.

As for those who couldn’t be bothered shopping at other places or never sending mail, calling them then you too helped them.
There are lists out there with companies giving money to the homo agenda, home depot is a massive one.

Ban the likes of home depot and tell them why you are banning them.

went to starbucks once and that was it and that was years ago.

Hate the place, the overpriced coffee, the snotty little urchin serving, the snobby customers who think they’re special because they have a starbucks coffee, hate seeing the NY Times rag headlines.

Why anyone ever goes there is beyond me.

There is a whole list of companies there and maybe we need to do what the left does and get this list, and then mass mail these companies.

Also maybe we need to all call the talk radio phony’s like Hannity and tell him no more taking conservative money until you start telling your listeners about conservative social issues are.

I’m fed up of being told off liberals who say do not mention social issues because no one wants to know . well they do want to know and states voting have proven that

homo depot is not mentioned but they are a massive money giver and even gives money to their freak parades.

Most of those companies are from the north east I see, maybe we need to build a wall along VA’s northern border instead of our southerner border

“The organizations are, or represent, major employers who argue that DOMA imposes significant administrative costs, and that it harms their ability to attract and retain talent.”

This makes absolutely no sense to me.....Can someone help me understand.

None of their coffee tastes like coffee.

They buy the cheap, low flavor beans, and over-roast them to produce a flavor, and then charge extra to boot.

Its called the “Seattle taste,” and if you’ve ever seen the shoreline area of Seattle, you know its appropriate. :o)

“Microsoft and Starbucks are among 70 corporations, financial institutions, medical centers, and other major organizations that have signed on to a friend-of-the-court brief in support of a challenge to the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).”


CORPORATE GREED for money knows no limits.

I’ve never been to washington State,but if I ever do go there I’ll be careful to avoid that coffee. I rarely drink coffee anyway,since it tends to give me heartburn.
