Posted on 01/26/2012 11:21:31 AM PST by Recovering_Democrat
Starbucks has joined the fight for gay marriage, as Washington state edges closer to becoming the seventh state to approve marriage equality.
Executive vice president of Partner Resources at Starbucks sent an email to business partners yesterday afternoon with the subject, "RE: A Message From Kalen Holmes: Starbucks Supports Marriage Equality."
"Starbucks is proud to join other leading Northwest employers in support of Washington State legislation recognizing marriage equality for same-sex couples," Holmes wrote.

Ugh. But not surprising.
What’s up with companies endorsing ANYTHING?
Just sell your product and STFU.
I’m depressed that I can’t boycott a hugely overrated product I never patronized in the first place.
2nd ammendment support versus supporting the homosexual takeover of holy matrimony.
Will people now advocate patronizing them, or boycotting them?
Personally, I just don't like the way their coffee tastes.
Starbucks is just serving their pedophile, gay, transvestite, cross dressing mocha latte base.
How is this possible? Liberals hate guns and the people that support the 2nd amendment.
Starbucks is just serving their pedophile, gay, transvestite, cross dressing mocha latte base...that like to carry guns and support the 2nd amend.
Make that 2 of us.
The Starbucks in my area has an extremely gay guy as the “barrister”. His voice is so high he sounds like a 10 year old girl. No way he was born with that voice. I laugh everytime he talks. Others try to act like it’s all normal and have conversations with him about his weekend etc. His/it’s voice really will make you laugh.
I don’t go there either. It’s way overpriced, and the nice locally owned coffee shop is much less expensive. And the baristas are better looking and friendlier, too. Most importantly, I don’t have to worry about what would happen if I tell some guy to hold my seat.
Never buy their crappy burnt flavored coffee. Now I have a political/social issue that backs up what my tastebuds already told me... Starbucks SUCKS!!!!!!
Does that now include gay sex education for the kids?
Which will be law.
How’s that feel.
“Next week class, we’ll be covering “fisting”!”
Like a straight guy can say, ‘I’ll have a tall half-skinny half-1 percent extra hot split quad shot (two shots decaf, two shots regular) latte with whip, please.”
The coffee is over-roasted to try to hide the fact that it’s stale before it gets to most shops.
Find a local roaster or shop and buy there. In Houston, Catalina’s is the best. I have a plumbed La San Marco espresso machine in my house with a Mazzer SJ and MACAP MXK grinders. It was an expensive endeavor, but let’s me buy my coffee from a local roaster who donates a lot of his income to churches all over South America and Africa. Plus I get my coffee the way I like it.
Now the manager is (I'm guessing) a fruit (based on his vocal patterns and mannerisms), and one of the most-frequently working barristas is an "it" - some kind of multi-colored hair, short-haired, ugly-haired, ugly glasses-wearing ugly, male-dressing, ugly attitude, rainbow-wristband wearing "thing".
Despite their recent remodel, the place has gone downhill, and I'm almost positive business has been sinking. If we get the word out on this, I think it will put a real hurt on Starbucks nationally.
From now on, it's "Peets" for me!
Sorry... if I go to a chain coffee shop... Dunkin Donuts (grew up with them) or Paneria Bread....
Check out "cold-brewing" your own.
I always knew I was right to stick to Dunkin’ Donuts.

Thank you! Also, I don’t want to bother with a coffee shop that’s too pretentious to sell a large coffee, and has to call it “grande” instead. Give me a break.
And you Starbucks “baristas”? Don’t get swelled heads. You’re soda jerks, that’s all.
Extra large coffee at McDonalds cost a buck. And tastes just fine.
,,,,, Starbucks leaving a bad taste in your mouth . Some thing are just too hard to swallow .
sorry ,,,, I just couldn’t resist . . .
Peet’s is better, anyway. Just not as convenient, as there aren’t Peet’s on every corner.
Funny how many people here liked Starbucks on the pro-gun thread!!
The economy is not recovering, we have ten per cent unemployement, we have gangs and Mexican drug lords inflitrating the DOJ but what is really, really important is to socially engineer marriage and family around gay sex and lifestyle. That is all that really matters, America!
“Whats up with companies endorsing ANYTHING?
Just sell your product and STFU.”
That makes way too much sense in the world we live in today.
