    Group of antis planning Starbucks boycott on 14 February... who's up for coffee?

    http://www.prnewswire.com/news-relea...137890863.html

    Possibly the most biased article I've read in awhile. Group's website is worse. In any event, their objective is to hit Starbucks' stock value with a boycott (Starbucks corporate policy is to follow whatever the state law is, so they allow OC and CC where it's legal). I hate their dirt-tasting coffee, but I vote we all buy a cup on Valentines' Day.

    I will visit at least 3 starbucks that day. I will thank them for their policy and leave a $5 tip in each tip jar.

    It's so VERY dangerous in a Starbucks - I wonder how many shootings per day they have? None? Get out!!

    It is not about need, anymore than is a fire extinguisher or Stanley Multi-Plane.

    The support that has been generated to show thanks to Starbucks had been outstanding across the nation.

    One suggested method of bringing quiet attention to our visits has been made - pay for your coffee with $2.00 bills, symbolizing the 2nd Amendment - it will cause you to be remembered.

    This idea is on the brink of going viral - so best get yours a few days early before your bank runs out.

    I know from working around Portland that only one thing comes to mind when someone pays with $2 bills. PTs Showclub. Strippers deal in $2's.

    I don't want to know how you came to have that little tidbit of knowledge

    Must be a local thing - doesn't bother me in the least. ymmv

    Don't think anyone is likely to accuse me of fraternization with that element and I have, off and on for years, tipped with silver dollars and $2.00 bills & guess what?............the wait staff remember me.

    BTW - when someone mentions a G string, I think of this:

    Point is anything can be made a positive or a negative depending on the predisposition.
