Starbucks has plenty of politically-neutral competitors. I'll be voting for them with my pocketbook.

Let’s see...last month I was supposed to patronize Starbucks because of their stance on gun rights, and this month I’m supposed to boycott them because they support gay marriage.

It could hurt my brain if I let it.

Now, I'm really going to have to wonder how they really make their coffee. And where's it's been.

I have never given them one red cent of my money. I am just one small consumer, but I do care where my money goes. No Starbucks, Ben and Jerrys, Homo Depot, Heinz, Govt. Motors, or Girl Scouts.

I know I am in the minority here, but I honestly don’t give a shit what political stance a company takes. You paid for your latte, the money is no longer yours. It now belongs to Starbucks. They can do whatever they want with their money. If they want to support anything, even if a majority of the country doesn’t agree with them, well, it is a free country. I won’t join the boycott. Might even buy a second coffee just for the heck of it. They are following their conscience. Can’t fault them for that.

The first two words in the title sums it up nicely.

In my little corner of the world we don’t have a Starbuck’s. I have seen them other places but never had a cup of coffee. One morning, a couple of weeks ago in Atlanta I was invited by a factory rep for coffee at a Starbuck’s. He ordered. I saw the bill, all most $20 for 2 coffees. I don’t care what they support,whether I agree or not, which I don’t in this case, they won’t see me again.

StarBucks has a lion’s share of the “Coffee Cafes” in mega-churches across America. Hopefully these churches will go back to ‘grocery store’ coffee and homemade cookies.

Having no values is core values in diversity speech.

When traveling I stop at McDonalds for coffee. It’s hit or miss, as to whether or not I’ll get good coffee, or crap, but by the time I’m ready to stop for coffee, its the caffeine fix I’m after, not the taste.

I buy my coffee from a local business in owned by a Tea Party Patriot. As I mentioned a few days ago in another thread, anyone who traverses Route 17 in Southern VA, and would like a much better gourmet coffee for the morning commute.. AND support the business aspirations of a fellow Patriot .. shoot a private mail over and I’ll give you the location and other particulars.

It’s idiotic business strategy to take a stand on a controversial issue when you have stores on every block and depend on a huge volume of customers. Is Starbucks trying to outdo Carbonite?

Their coffee tastes burnt. Fast food and convenience store coffee tastes better.

LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersex, Aesexual)

Wait, what? Since when did QIA get added, and I don't even know what Intersex or Aesexual is...?

And I don't really care for Starbucks. Sometimes they have hot chicks behind the counter, but the coffee is too expensive and not good enough to be worth it. Make Dunkin' Donuts coffee at home :)

Starbucks held its annual shareholders meeting last week, during which the Seattle-based coffee company affirmed that support for same-sex marriage is one of its core values.

Who's surprised that a Seattle based company (home to aging, leftover hippies) would oppose a conservative value like families?

Anyone?


Anyone at all??

...yelps of outrage from the LGBTQIA (Lesbian,Gay,Bisexual,Transgender, Questioning,Intersex,Aesexual) community...

Wow. They just keep adding letters. I wonder where they will place the "P" and the "B" when they welcome pedophilia and bestiality into the tent?

McDonalds has WiFi and their Coffee tastes much better than Starbucks drip. Same goes for Carl's Jr. Great coffee there as well.

Never have plain Coffee at Starbucks, but once in a blue Moon I get a Grande Mocha. At least I used to.
