One of my addictions is coffee, and Starbucks is what I usually drink. My wife hates it, can’t stand the taste, prefers something …lighter…but taste is subjective, so I can’t fault her on that. But I like it. I even have the app on my iPhone, tagged to my bank account, so I don’t even need to have any cash on me to buy a cup of coffee. Yeah, I’m a sorry fellow. The only downside for me is that it’s a major corporation, and sometimes I feel I should be giving my business to local coffee shops. Actually, occasionally I do, but I still frequent Starbucks the most. Shoot me.
CEO, Howard Schultz, has written a letter to the heads of major corporations on the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ asking them to join him in boycotting all political donations to all politicians in Washington, until they “get the country’s economic circulatory system flowing again.” Spend political money creating jobs, not buying politicians, he says.
