    I recall their french fry drive,....anybodys french fries but theirs. LOL! So as corporations like Star Bust enter the political arena and start making demands, are we far from a boiling point, and rightwing call to boycott businesses that don't share their strict fascist views? Will their be resentment when the corporate money stops flowing? Will Boner who doesn't care if American workers lose their jobs, start crying when he loses his job?:lol:

    More than 100 business leaders have signed on to Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz’s pledge to stop making donations to incumbents until Washington gridlock eases, sending a message to lawmakers that they must make real progress in reining in deficit spending.

    ....has leaders agreeing to stop campaign contributions until lawmakers “strike a bipartisan, balanced long-term debt deal that addresses both entitlements and revenues,” but also has the leaders agreeing to find ways to accelerate job growth in their companies and the economy as a whole.

    Well, if Star Bucks' CEO's statement is any indication I will be drinking much more of their coffee.

    "I am asking that all of us forgo political contributions until the Congress and the President return to Washington and deliver a fiscally, disciplined long term debt and deficit plan to the American people," Starbucks CEO to DC: You've been cut off - Aug. 16, 2011

    The mall up the street from me has two Star Busts. Speaking of which, we are paying more for coffee than gasoline. Two pounds is over $15.00 .:eek: It's a good excuse to drink Tequila Sunrises for breakfast.
