    Well, let's start with the fact that you're a reasonably intelligent adult.

    Let them. Starbucks announced a first ever cash divedend! Perhaps Starbucks will release a press release thanking OCDO and BB for the $5 mil. in free advertising! Or maybe several high profile stockholders will show up and open carry!

    Anyone ever see the Penn and Teller Bullsh!t where they made up a fake petition at an environmental rally trying to ban H2O. This kind of reminds me of that. Don't question their message because they are so earnest in trying to sell you on something.

    I don't think that demonstrating and handing out pamphlets at Starbucks meeting will help to endear them to the company. Starbucks is getting tired of their crap.

    Okay, Okay...

    Time for the courtesy laugh:



    After all, what they are REALLY after is continued face time on television pushing this gun ban agenda...and they will likely get it.

    Let them.I would be willing to bet Starbucks is getting a little annoyed at these folks trying to dictate their policy.Thats why we should just leave it be so as not to give the appearence we are trying to influence.It sounds as if they are just going to stand their ground and follow state law as they have indicated.

    Anyone else see the irony here. They're just making themselves look stupid, now. Leave 'em be. Maybe they'll send a couple more people our way by mistake. :celebrate

    We should also honor Starbuck's wishes to not get dragged into the gun control controversy and not do anything. We should honor everybody's wishes to not do anything.
    Except buy more overpriced coffee! Which I will do.

    Saw Ralph Falacio putting starbuck down in an interview he did. I'm sure Starbucks loves hearing how bad Ceasfire thinksStarbucks is running THEIR business.

    "This is about no guns," one activist said. "We don't want loaded guns in our Starbucks stores."
    But investor Richard Harrigill said: "All Starbucks is saying is we're going to abide by the law. If it's good, it's good."


    Some stockholders would prefer the company to keep guns out.
    "I'd be very scared to see somebody walk in with a gun," said Marlene Stachan. "I wouldn't know what they're going to do with it."

    Only 3 people were there to protest. No worries.
