I always found their coffee rather bland to be honest.

CEO doesn't really understand diversity or good business sense.

I'd laugh whilst doing a merry jig if the backlash of "traditional marriage" supporters was so massive it cut into their profits. See how firmly he keeps to his "moral stand" then.

At the Starbucks annual shareholders meeting on Wednesday, CEO Howard Schultz sent a clear message to anyone who supports traditional marriage over gay marriage: we don't want your business. After saying Starbucks wants to "embrace diversity of all kinds," he told a shareholder who supports traditional marriage that he should sell his shares and invest in some other company.

According to a report by Forbes, Schultz seemed a bit intolerant of any Starbucks shareholders who opposed gay marriage for moral or religious reasons. During the meeting, shareholder Tom Strobhar (who founded the Corporate Morality Action Center) pointed out that after the company voiced its support for a referendum backing gay marriage in Washington state, a boycott by traditional marriage supporters caused a drop in sales revenue. Schultz told him "You can sell your shares in Starbucks and buy shares in another company" if he did not agree with the company's pro-gay marriage stand.

Lucky me, I prefer the hot, black coffee down at the Greasy Spoon, or the Barn. Good old stick-to-your-ribs coffee. wink

The only thing I'd miss would be the mocha valencia frappuccino- except they discontinued the valencia flavor a couple years back. I miss that and I might miss their iced coffee in the summer. Otherwise, no loss.

However, I was thinking this might be a real blessing too if instead of dropping $$ on a giant corporation, people seek out the local and family-owned cafes in their neighborhood and spend there instead. It may not be practical for everyone who has to run around and needs to grab coffee while in the car, but I'm sure in most towns, there's at least one small coffee shop.

Thanks Jerry, I stopped buying their overpriced bitter tasting swill a long time ago. This is one more good reason to avoid them. McDonald's coffee is better, cheaper, and they also have WiFi.
