    It isn't over until it's over. "Starbucks Boycott"

    As many of you suspected, the anti-gun protest of Starbucks is not a one day only thing. Keep supporting them. I'm just thinking I won't have to wait in line as long, unless I have to stand in line with a bunch of people openly carrying.

    Here's the news story on CNBC: http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000073266

    I don't think anyone told Kentucky Antis that they're boycotting starbucks. The store I went into was surprised that they were being boycotted and the same report was coming from other members who visited other starbucks.

    Starbucks stock opened this morning nearly a dollar higher than it's close yesterday.

    Looks like NGVAC's boycott was a resounding success--for Starbuck's bottom line!

    I've noticed that nearly everywhere the boycott was either unknown or unnoticed lol, I think there are only a few die hards that are actually participating and we effectively took their place

    I think we should call it the Starbucks Appreciation Buycott.

    I dropped some $2 bills off at my local starchuncks. Told them it was an anti-boycott buycott- they said they hadn't heard of the boycott either.

    I've never been to a Starbucks in my life nor have I ever purchased any of their products elsewhere. Not being a coffee aficionado, I just can't see paying that kind of money for a cup of coffee. But my question is what is the significance of using a $2 bill?

    $2 bill = sly way of referring to the 2nd Amendment.

    They sell really expensive hot cocoa and scones as well. And have free wifi.

    A regular cup of coffee is under $2 unless of course you buy the fufu drinks then you can spend $5 or more.

    I went buy the one in Covington La Friday evening. Had a great glass of Ice Tea. Some people asked about my Gun. I passed out a handful of LOCAL flyers. Quiet a few people asked for more flyers because they had never heard of OCDO or LOCAL.

    About seven of us here in Colorado Springs got together at the Starbucks on Garden of the Gods Rd and Centennial Blvd at noon on the 14th.

    Good times!

    On 2/14/12 at the Starbucks in Ashland KY, they said that they had received word that their may be protesters but had not seen any. The nice part is that she said that they had received some two dollar bills (I had none) but I was not the first to thank them for being pro rights. She did not mention firearms, but at least used the word rights. I had thanked her for supporting everyone's right to carry a firearm.

    Business is booming in Richmond, Va

    I spent $30 buying Pikes Peak for anyone that ordered it while I was there on 02/14/2012. No fancy foo foo drinks, just coffee. Many thanked me and some even asked why. Had a few good conversations.

    Haven't seen any change except for an increase at my favorite store. Haven’t missed a day since the 1st and don't intend to miss any, especially if it aggravates the anti crowd!

    Another way to support Starbucks and have influence is to buy some shares should the price dip down.
    Don't believe any facts that I say! This is the internet and it is filled with lies and untruth. I invite you to look up for yourself the basic facts that my arguments might be based upon. This way we can have a discussion where logic and hints on where to find information are what is brought to the forum and people look up and verify facts for themselves.

    Not convinced by the use of Monte Carlo simulations, or at least the works "Monte Carlo"?!

    I was thinking, we should use 1 & 2 dollar bills! That's the 1st Amendment and the 2nd Amendment!

    The 2nd gets most of the attention but remember, it's the 1st that's the keystone of the Constitution!

    You can't have one and not the other, It's all or nothing!

    Starbucks open carry

    [COLOR="#0000FF"]I contacted Starbucks about their open carry policy and was informed that they go with local and state laws and ALLOW OPEN CARRY in their restaurants so long as it is legal in that state. They also said they appreciate the input from the open carry community , so lets drop them a note thanking them and let them know we will use their business more knowing their stand on the subject it can only get better when other businesses see the business they could be getting . I hope this helps knowing what their stand is and if you encounter any problems you can contact them and get the problem resolved quickly .
