Starbucks Appreciation Day
Facebook ^ | August 2, 2012 | Facebook

Posted on 08/02/2012 11:52:08 AM PDT by HIDEK6

EquallyWed.com has proposed a National Starbucks Appreciation Day in direct response to the overwhelming national support at Chick-fil-A on Mike Huckabee’s Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. Starbucks is on record for supporting marriage equality, and the LGBTQ community and its wonderful allies are ready to let its dollars speak for them on August 7, 2012 at Starbucks everywhere.

So how are you supposed to know who is straight and who is gay at Starbucks?
Straight guy, "Grande coffee, please."
Gay guy, "I'll have a Grande, hot, decaf, triple five-pump vanilla, non-fat, no foam, whip cream, extra hot, extra carmel, upside down, carmel machiatto, chop chop please sweetie.

Wendy's did this? Serious?

Starbucks has to be sweating this. They’re about to lose a lot of business.

This is hilarious, because while Starbucks supports left leaning causes, as a policy it does not object to open carry.

So when the LGBTQ&P(edophiles) are holding their liquid candy-a-thon, showing up with open carry could very well give them the vapors.

Excellent. They will never come close to duplicating what happened yesterday.

CFA Appreciation Day wasn’t about gays (or anti-gays), it was about free speech. People who don’t give a rat’s patootie about gay marriage turned out yesterday because there are big-city mayors threatening CFA’s right to do business, and that is what got things going.

Both sides are showing an ability to learn the wrong lessons.

Don’t have to wait that long.. tomorrow night is their silly “kiss in”...

That will show how deep their support runs.

I am with you on this one. Whataburger has got to be the best burger in the world. Every time my son and I come back from offshore fishing in Destin, our first stop is Whataburger.

I did not know they were based in Corpus Christi, I have only seen them in Florida. Why no stores in Louisiana, Mississippi or Alabama?

Their burgers have to be deadly as they taste so good. I guess it is a blessing that there are none where I live.

Straight guy, "Grande coffee, please."

I hate using those size words at Starbucks. I am a Small, Medium, Large type of guy.

I really feel gay asking for a Venti.

I drink my coffee black, and Starbucks over-roasts their coffee to stand up to the "triple five-pump vanilla, non-fat, no foam, whip cream, extra hot, extra carmel, upside down, carmel machiatto", IMHO.

I wasn’t aware that any conservative town was running a campaign to deny Starbucks entry.

Besides most lefties prefer to go to the independent coffee houses anyway. You think they are going to support a corporate brand?

“Venti” is Italian for “twenty,” as in 20-ounce coffee. Technically, Starbucks is giving you detailed serving-size information, but I’ll bet you that 90% of their customers couldn’t tell you what “venti” means.

You should feel like Eurotrash asking for a Venti. It’s probably the same feeling.

So what’s the overall population of Americans that are gay? Good luck with a gay appreciation day boosting your sales as the heteros will go to Duncan Donuts that day...

I was mistaken (my first error of the century :-)) about their HQ. They were founded in Corpus Christi and still have a strong presence there but they moved to San Antonio in 2009.

Here's the story of Whatabuger. From that site you can locate their stores. Based upon a cursory check, they do have a number of locations in Alabama and Mississippi.

I don’t know if they still are, but Starbuks used to be very anti 2A....big signs around: “Gun Free Zone” or something to that effect..........Consequently, I never patronized them.

Depends on the state. SB corporate leaves it up to whatever local law is. Individual stores may have different policies based on local management, but there is no corporate policy one way or the other on that. I do think they've been known to support the brady bunch though. (not sure about that)

I'd be willing to bet some serious money that the press will play this up, and have extensive news coverage of a SB or two in san francisco, or some other fag friendly city. I'd also be willing to bet the support actually demonstrated out here in the nation at large will be a miniscule fraction of that generated by the attacks on CFA.

It was only one local franchise owner of Wendy’s that posted signs saying “We Stand with Chik Fil A”, not to direct people to eat there. It was down in one of the Carolinas I think.

Yup. Their "blonde" coffee is actually drinkable, because it has a much lighter roast on it.

“I don’t know if they still are, but Starbuks used to be very anti 2A..”

They reversed themselves a sharp 180 degrees under public pressure. I think the stupid New Age maunderings are gone from their cups now too. May be wrong, I don’t go there much except on long road trips.

DnD used to have a store in Carnegie, PA where the Pennsylvania State Police had a barracks, and where the boundaries of about nine different police jurisdictions came together nearby. The joke was if you needed a cop don't call 911, call Dunkin' Donuts in Carnegie, because that's where they're all gonna be anyway.

Their copy cat attempts remind me of their desparate “coffee party” reaction after we sent a million protestors to DC for a Tea Party.

You know liberals have jumped the shark with their sexual authorianism and they are having relapse nightmares. The same homo crowd were in charge of the femenazis. At that time they had “progressed” to classify children and all heterosexual love and sex as oppressive to women.

There were pictures of at least a couple of Wendy’s franchises with a sign out front (that kind with the movable letters — probably usually shows specials) reading “We stand with Chick-Fil-A.”

The homosexual bloc stands ready to do to Starbucks what they tried ignorantly to do to Chik-Fil-A. If they succeed in making Starbucks an overt Queer Mecca the chain’s available universe of customers will reduce to the homosexual and arts crowd. Stores will close in nonhomosexual areas- places outside of Massachusetts and California as business contracts. Starbucks will become a “niche” business as JC Penny and others are striving to do.

I don’t go to Starbucks. When I want to sit with a cup of coffee I go to the Waffle House. The atmosphere is much more pleasant. Wafflehouses and clones and wannabes are the modern incarnation of the old time diners. They have good basic coffee, no whipped cream and no cherries. And they don’t serve chai(chi? chay?) but if you want tea you can have that but if you don’t specify “hot” tea you get sweetened iced tea- it’s a southern thing.

Starbucks’ “Coffee” tastes like Battery Acid(not that I am a connesour(sp?) of FINE Battery Acid)!

At our local independent coffee shop, the owner calls Starbucks the BBCC (Burnt Bean Coffee Company).

And that sign was taken down shortly after it was posted. Wendy's corporate tweeted that one franchise owner had posted the sign and that it had been taken down. They ended their tweet with "We proudly serve ALL customers." They were clearly distancing themselves from their "rogue" franchisee.
