Have Coffee, Will Travel


So, I went to Starbucks for the first time in a loooong time today.  I didn't go to Starbucks because they are pro- anything because they aren't.  I just respect a business that says, "we're going to do what is legal, period" and not succumb to loud minority pressure.  There are other groups attacking them from other sides today for their stance on other issues.  I'm not so concerned about that.  I lean pretty Libertarian when it comes to letting people cut their own path in life and live with the consequences or lack thereof.  So, just on my one little pet issue I'm going to support them.  I don't have to support everything else they do or say.  If you think that is possible, I have a group of Republican Presidential candidates that would like to have a word with you.

  1. I bought coffee from them as well this morning. Gotta support a company that tells the whiners to pound sand, and that they are not going to support one side over the other.

    1. Good deal. Glad you got to swing by. I would love to see the sales margin for today.

  2. Yeah I think that other group shut down their page in shame. They only had like 300 people compared to the 20,000 for the buycott. I went with my son and enjoyed a good cup of coffee.

    1. I actually didn't do the Facebook thing since I never am on there. I did see the numbers through other gun blogs and it made me chuckle.
