Starbucks CEO: We support marriage equality, and if you donít like it, sell your stock

Starbucks chief executive Howard Schultz on Wednesday defended the company’s decision to support marriage equality, and told investors that if they weren’t on board, they could sell their stock and go elsewhere.

Howard Schultz Last year, the Seattle-based company announced its support for legalizing same-sex marriage in Washington state, prompting opponents of the measure — notably the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage — to launch a boycott of Starbucks.

At the company’s annual meeting Wednesday, shareholder Tom Strobhar described Starbucks’ first-quarter performance as disappointing, and suggested that was due in part to the boycott.

“In the first fill quarter after this boycott was announced, our sales and our earrings — shall we say politely — were a bit disappointing,” Strobhar said.

Unfazed, Schultz replied that the company’s decision to support marriage equality was not the bottom line, but about respecting diversity, reported KPLU.

You missed my point. Stock sales = stock buys. When you sell a stock, you’re selling it to someone who is buying it.

Well of course. The price one pays to buy or sell is the important bit.

Jebus H. - what does one do with pork rectums?

I think it is a joke. I mean did you notice they were "boneless" pork rectums? What other type of pork rectums would there be except boneless?

Well, a Google search worked just fine for me: THE CENTER FOR BIO-ETHICAL REFORM GREGG CUNNINGHAM July 13, 2011 The Importance Of Picking Fights To Create Disruptive Crises (see top of page 11)

I have to add, tho, that it's possible the Seahawks have halted such funding. The original source for this info -- the Web site I saw it at -- was Life Decisions Intl. LDI keeps tabs on which orgs/corporations give $ to PP...and if they don't agree to stop funding PP, LDI keeps them on their list.

The online list they publish is not a complete list -- unlike the other one they circulate...but the Seahawks (& Cowboys) are no longer on that online list.

Got a news flash for suppoters of marriage equality

It 's not gay and it's not marriage.

P.S. When your "time" comes, you're going to need a better excuse.
