    Starbucks

    "Starbucks: We don't fund Israel."

    In today's sociopolitical environment, that's a death wish.

    In light of your statement, Starbucks, we the People of the United States of America DON'T FUND STARBUCKS.

    EVER.

    Please let me know when you've pulled your heads out of your asses...

    I don't fund (voluntarily) most organizations/entities, is that a political statement that I oppose them?

    Could I have some context regarding the Starbucks "statement"?

    I buy stuff made in Kuala Lampoor, but that does not mean I "fund" the place. I sent money to pay for pizzas for the IDF in Gaza, but that does not mean I "fund" Israel or support its politics.

    What is it that Starbucks is doing to not fund Israel? (You brought it up - I should not have to do more than click a link to find out.)

    stay safe.

    The context is that $tarbuk$ stands with the Pariah President Carter anti-Semites.

    Carter was an unexceptional Engineering Duty Officer trained by Rickover. Navy Nuclear Power has and had nothing to do with weapons.

    Pariah Carter's biographers gloss his naval experience and likely his anti-Semitic influences.

    I clicked your link and could find nothing about Starbucks.

    Your quote is not attributed as to author. Who was it, and in what context were they making those speculations?

    stay safe.

    BTW - being against the policies of the State of Israel is not antisemitism.

    You're right, the linked editorial is titled 'Jimmy Carter, the pariah president' and John Solomon is the Editor of The Washington Times that linked the epithet pariah with which I agree.

    It would seem that your statement, "your quote" makes it clear that they are my personal observations.

    I'll add that another potential source of Pariah Carter's animus is his son Chip's summary dismissal from the community, indeed from my class - in the night, driven away in a dark gray limousine - with my own eyes.

    Skid, are you daft, totally void of Internet news, or otherwise incapable of stumbling headlong into basic, everyday news by your own accord? Why are you demanding others provide you with readily available links which are but a Google's instant away?

    Lazy!

    Sorry, but you earned that label squarely in your forehead: LAZY!!! Grow a brain.

    In the meantime, here's the headlines: http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinio...fd1_story.html

    Quite obviously a clever scheme to camoflage the Carter/anti-Israel nexus, eh, wot?

    I'm more than familiar with Carter's "support" of Hamas at the expense of Israel but am still trying to figure out how you connect that with Starbucks.

    I abhore this source, but
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/0...n_5659681.html
    WASHINGTON -- The global coffee company Starbucks released a statement this week to clarify apparent misconceptions about the company's patronage of Israel.

    In a fact sheet updated Aug. 5, Starbucks notes it does not support any political or religious causes, adding that neither Starbucks nor its CEO, Howard Schultz, provides any financial support to the Israeli government or Israeli military.

    "Rumors that Starbucks or Howard provides financial support to the Israeli government and/or the Israeli Army are unequivocally false. Starbucks is a publicly held company and as such, is required to disclose any corporate giving each year through a proxy statement," the statement reads.
    So where is the nexus between Starbucks and Israel via Carter?

    stay safe.

    ...well, they are close to Israel, there are eight store in seven Amman. 16 in Cairo. 16 in Beirut. I'm sure Carter went to at least on of those cities at some point.

    So, Carter went to a city that has a Starbucks in it and those countries border Israel...simplicity itself.

    I don't believe in funding Israel but I do support their right to defend themselves.
