Starbucks on February 14th

I do not like Starbucks. It's overpriced and it's one of those companies that prides itself on going "organic" or "green" or whatever other stupid marketing tactic it uses to sell overpriced coffee to overly-stupid people (which, is maybe why I should like it).

However, it seems an anti-gun outfit is trying to boycott Starbucks. Why? Because Starbucks is allowing people who openly carry firearms to come into their stores in states where an open carry is legal.

The boycott is supposed to happen on the 14th. I shall purchase a fluffy foo-foo drink on the 14th at Starybucks. You should too.

I know this is old, but...

There are two kinds of misanthropes;
a. environmentalists who stupidly believe that humanity is having any sort of net-negative effect on the Earth (though most believe it to be a death-spiral impact, not just merely negative)

and b. Those people who have had to put up with the a group listed above.

I barely ever go to Starbucks either but I will also be getting a delicious foofy drink on the 14th. I just have to go to the bank and pick up some 2 dollar bills to buy it with.

OK, I'll bite.

Why 2 dollar bills?

Legion said...

Sounds like a plan. I even got a $20 gift certificate for them from my brother. He doesn't know me well enough I guess.

2nd amendment.

My understanding is that $2 bills are rare and considered unlucky in the US, especially the southern States. As a result you hardly ever see them and some cashiers refuse to take them because they think they're counterfeit.

I say let'em and then ask these nitwits if they believe in Darwinism...chances are they will say Yes.

Then pull out your gun and blast their head off and say:

"Survival of the Fittest, Bitches!"

Hey a guy can dream can't he?

I think I'll actually go for a hat trick: breakfast, lunch, and after music lessons (note: you want to study music how about getting that haaaard math degree and use the money you earn to study music instead of loans).

And $2 is one way to have the store see how many pro-gun sales they made that day if it takes off.

I abhor starbucks coffee. Hate is too weak of a word.

But, I will make sure I purchase several coffees, and other items on that day. Oh, and I am going to send an e-mail to Starbucks management stating exactly why I am purchasing their product specifically on that date.

Oh, and I will probably send an picture message of me choking down Starbucks scorched bean slop just to demonstrate what lengths I will go to just to negate some crusaders's dream.

Come to Tasmania Capt, the nearest starbucks is 630km away.

It's good enough until I can get on a ship bound for Antarctica.
