Starbucks Informative - American Freedom - Anti-American action
CONNECTICUT -- The cost of freedom to do business in America, to make and keep your business profits in America, to speak your voice in America, to be educated in America, to choose and practice your own religion in America, to vote for your democratic representative in government in America, and to select the brand of coffee you will buy in America is extraordinarily high. Americans die to pay the cost of those rights. Many many soldiers have given their lives to pay that price. Families have lost fathers, sons, sisters and brothers in the global effort to keep terrorism off American streets, to preserve our way of life - a way of life that Starbucks depends on to make bundles of money from the American people.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered that - as part of Starbucks plan to maximize profits from Americans - they refused to send coffee to our soldiers fighting in Iraq. Recently Marines in Iraq wrote to STARBUCKS because they wanted to let them know how much they liked their coffees and to request that they send some of it to the troops there. STARBUCKS replied, telling the Marines thank you for their support of their business, but that STARBUCKS does not support the war, NOR ANYONE IN IT (!), and that they would not send the troops their brand of coffee.
For all of you who are disgusted by this selfish and vulgar display of anti-Americanism, I call on you to boycott this company Starbucks. The coffee comes from countries who are constantly at war, not to mention the genesis of much of our drug traffic in America, and Starbucks has no qualms about reaping the profits from them! Please do not buy Starbucks coffee anymore.
I noticed they've added a little plug for the military on their website, to ameliorate the publicity they've received for their anti-American gaffe. Don't be fooled. Anyone can put words up. Follow their actions. Watch to see if they actually walk the walk. (Note their Social Responsibility letter - saving Mother Earth, but abandoning our freedom fighters abroad! - is "currently on hiatus")
Thanks for listening!
