    You like Dazbog? I just found out it's Denver-based; they're my go to coffee chain. There's almost as many of them as They Who Shall Not Be Named. Love that KGBlend.
    It's alright. Given the choice, I will always go to the local, non-chain store.

    Wish more people would adopt this philosophy.

    Come on people, this is ******* pathetic.

    All this drama over the CEO giving his opinion in an interview and the fact that, *gasp*, he's legally donating to causes he believes in.

    This only strengthens the stereotype some hold of liberals and homosexuals being overly sensitive, in response to mere opinions!

    People saying Starbucks is expensive sound like poor heathens from the third world. Actually, they sound like they've never left the US and tried coffee from other countries. Anybody here ever had Jamaican Blue Mountain? Not that Whole Foods crap. But actually in the Blue Mountains?

    Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Can't protest gay oreos on an empty stomach.

    Um, with respect I'm not 100% clear on what you mean.

    I suppose support for local businesses and American-made products is alright, but exactly how it'll be made to oppose and support every political stance or personal view leaves me wondering what the purpose would be. That, and I'm unsure how exactly that relates to these petty actions over the CEO's opinion. Personally I think business owners should be able to voice their opinions without fear of punishment or hyper-sensitive people attacking them for it. If people want to boycott them or be cretins, that's fine, but personally I think the cretin-like behavior is unneeded and only harms their cause.
