More Jump On The Boycott Starbucks Bandwagon
Beautiful! By all means, give the CEO what he asks for, with pleasure!
Yea,I already stopped going to Starbucks!!!
sHOULD WE CALL A NATION'S BOYCOTT ON A CERTAIN DAY LIKEWE DID WITH CHICK-FIL?
I didn't hear about that. Don't know. I just heard that bible study groups do and have gone there. I'd pull out if I were them. Yep, I made it a point and took myself and my grandkids to Chick-Fil-A for lunch on the appreciation day. The guy just gave a respectable remark when asked - when asked- and all hell broke loose on him from the libs. And they didn't discriminate in who they hired, but boy, did they discriminate against him anyway! Hypocrites. Then that stupid asses butt who tried to stop him from putting a restaurant in his city just because of a personal, very respectful answer given, when asked!

The CEO of Starbucks thinks that the only rewards are financial, flouting a (now) 38 percent return on his stock. The U.S. made a lot of money in the 1930s selling scrap iron to Japan - and got it back in the form of bullet jackets and the Zeroes shot down over the Pacific. Yes, I know the comparison is not equal in scale, but it still has merits as an example.
Apparently the CEO of Starbucks never heard the phrase "He knows the price of everything and the value of nothing." And I'll throw in a quote from Jesus in Luke 9:25.

What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self?
And here's a stock tip for you: if the CEO of a company belittles a shareholders at a meeting, run like hell from the stock.Saying "Get thee behind me, Satan," is optional.
I personally have no position in Starbucks stock either long or short and don't own it in the form of options, etc.
Link and excerpt from article:
At Starbucks' annual meeting last week, shareholder Thomas Strobhar, who runs an organization that opposes gay marriage, criticized the company for supporting same-sex marriage, claiming that taking a public stance on the issue was hurting its bottom line. This came after Starbucks last year backed a bill to legalize the practice in Washington state, which led to the National Organization for Marriage boycotting the coffee chain.
Mr. Schultz then invited those who disagree with the store's support for gay marriage to sell their shares and leave the company.
"If you feel, respectfully, that you can get a higher return than the 38 percent you got last year, it's a free country," Mr. Schultz said at the shareholder meeting. "You can sell your shares of Starbucks and buy shares in another company. Thank you very much."
Mr. Schultz' comments offended the American Family Association, which pointed out that Christian community holds thousands of Bible studies sessions at Starbucks locations around the country and is responsible for tens of millions of dollars spent at the coffee chain each year.
"The prospect for Starbucks' future growth due to faith-based individuals and groups across the country held great promise," Mr. Wildmon said. "But due to Mr. Shultz's alienation of our beliefs, which he demonstrated through his blatantly intolerant, politically charged actions, Christians will likely heed his advice."
