Starbucks Appreciation Day
Facebook ^ | August 2, 2012 | Facebook

Posted on 08/02/2012 11:52:08 AM PDT by HIDEK6

EquallyWed.com has proposed a National Starbucks Appreciation Day in direct response to the overwhelming national support at Chick-fil-A on Mike Huckabee’s Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. Starbucks is on record for supporting marriage equality, and the LGBTQ community and its wonderful allies are ready to let its dollars speak for them on August 7, 2012 at Starbucks everywhere.

I expect the media to play the day up like it’s the biggest event in a century.

Anyone doubt me?

I don’t disagree with you but I would bet that Starbucks will fail when the truth comes out.

I don’t know if they still are, but Starbuks used to be very anti 2A....big signs around: “Gun Free Zone” or something to that effect..........Consequently, I never patronized them.

On occasion, I frequent StarBucks. I'll be sure not to patronize them that day, or, to be on the safe side, for the next two weeks.

I don’t go to Starbucks as it is. (Two other local coffee houses offer much better...scenery...) Now I have another reason to not go to Starbucks, certainly not on August 7.

However, I will be in the area of the Starbucks at 116th Street & I69 that day. It is normally one of the busier ones in the State of Indiana. I will check and see how they are doing.

Oh, great, so the options for my caffeine fix are Starbucks (gay marriage supporters) or Caribou Coffee (majority owned by the Muslim Brotherhood). I suppose Dunkin’ Donuts is in the tank for Elizabeth Warren then?

WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!!!. It should be Wendy Appreciation Day because yesterday they posted signs in their places to eat at Chick-Phil-A. So, after hearing this, Wendy will be my first choice fast food place here in Seattle. It would be Chick-Phil-A but they don't have any franchises here. Beside, Starbuck's coffee is lousy. My coffee of choice is The Coffee and Tea Company

ok, now I can figure out what day to avoid Starbucks,,not biggie. So funny how all the Christian haters acted like the outpouring toward CFA was no big deal..some were even yawning. Geee,,if the support for CFA wasn’t so effective then why is the gay community trying to copy it? What is they say “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”...

Love it!

It is a known and proven fact that every Starbuck’s is a leper colony serving dengue fever, syphilis, hantavirus, and ebola in each cup.

I have a choice of Starbucks on one corner, and a small local coffee shop on the other.

All else being equal, I now have a reason to not go to Starbucks.

====================================================

Bite your tongue and patronize Caribou Coffee. I'm no fan of The Religion of Peace, but I'll give credit where it's due: They know how to deal with thieves, pot heads, rapists, and perverts.

They have every right to do whatever they want, or say what they want. I have never had Starbucks coffee; it’s too damned expensive, and McDonalds’ has great coffee.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Didn’t some kook try to form an anti-TEA party and call it the “coffee party” or some such? They can’t even be creative in their flattery!

Love it! Plus, I am laughing because on a light traffic day Starbucks takes FOREVER to make a coffee drink. Can you imagine how long people are going to have to wait in line? If I worked at SB, I’d quit right now.

That is funny. Personally, I don’t drink Starbucks anyway. To me, it is the most bitter tasting coffee around. So overrated. I really don’t see the fascination with it.

I don’t think they will get nearly the support that CFA got. Many people went to CFA simply because they didn’t appreciate the attack on Mr. Cathy’s First Amendment rights. They may draw large crowds but not enough to close them down early, as reported with many CFAs.

McDonalds’ has great coffee.

That's right but I'll give the edge on that to these guys:

I hope Whataburger doesn't support causes that I oppose because I sure do like their pancakes. They're based in Corpus Christi, which although is mostly Mexican, does have a large retired military presence in the area.

hahahahahahahaha. I know what you mean, lol. That's funny.

I have only had 1 cup of Staryucks SWILL and I paid $4 bucks for that insult to my taste buds. YUCK. NEVER AGAIN.

The bottom of my coffee pot after sitting all day pluged in tastes better than the Staryuck yuck. Let em have Staryucks, we will take the GOOD STUFF. That is a good tradeoff. Seperations of taste.

Sometimes i feel like a voice in the wilderness. Starbucks has to be among the worst coffees available. Overroasted to cover up the crap they sell at inflated prices. This is also the reason most of their “coffees” are 90 % milk, pumpkin spice, etc etc.

Starbucks is selling a concept ,, not coffee.

I hate their coffee. Over-roasted. Clients will ask to meet at Starbucks, and I get a hot Chai Tea latte.

Yesterday ALL retail chains saw the power of real, Conservative Americans and their purchasing power. Let's see what the gay community can muster.

This was a powerful statement that will be discussed in Board Rooms across the world.

And this libtard idea is also doomed to to fail visually. First of all, it’s fake, second it’s too late. Anybody remember the “Coffee Party” that was created to oppose the TEA party?
And last, Chick-Fil-A isn’t exactly everywhere. SO our visuals were great, helicopters could see lines out the door and traffic jams.

Theres a Starbucks on every corner, sometimes 2 or 3 on a corner. Most cities are lucky if they have ONE CFA to patronize. Maybe 2 or 3. On the other hand, if i want to go to the Starbucks protest, there are dozens of locations in every town of size. There protests will barely be noticeable. (except on the news)

Yeah But!! If you don't go to Staryucks you are not one of the Staryuck Elite SNOBS Club (SESC). After all it's not the taste or amount, its the "I CAN AFFORD THIS SHIT and YOU CAN'T" attitude that matters.

We have got to learn our status in life and the SESC's are always ready to tell us. Suks to be them, they have to endure so many offensive tastes to hold their Elitism titles.

Same here. And also ditched the junky Chinese-produced drip machines with an average six-month operational life.

Went back to the old stainless steel stovetop pot, like grandma always used. Saves $$ and the coffee tastes a lot better.

That does it for me. I will never buy from Starbucks again. I hope this backfires on Starbucks. A lot of those people buying CFA yesterday probably buy coffee from Starbucks. I hope they will do like me and stop giving Starbucks money. BP, Racetrac and QT are all gas stations in Georgia that sell coffee that is just as good if not better and for half the price.
