Obama Screws Mom-and-Pop Coffee Shops

There’s a coffee war brewing inside America’s V.A. Medical Centers that threatens to oust long-established mom-and-pop businesses in favor of a Starbucks-affiliated chain.

At stake is more than a cup-o’-Joe — for a lot of vendors, it’s their livelihood.

Ken Gilmore, who owns and operates Epiphany Coffee and Tea, which for 15 years has been serving up coffee and snacks inside the V.A. Medical Center in Sacramento, California, says the government-run agency has not extended his contract, and instead will open a PatriotsBrew, a chain shop already operating in more than 115 V.A. Medical Centers.

Stacy Papachrisanthou, the director of marketing and communications for the Veterans Canteen Services (VCS), says the conversion of contractor-run coffee shops into PatriotBrews comes from the desire to offer veterans and their families “a more consistent assortment” of healthier snacks and beverages, including Starbucks brand coffees.

Over the past five years, the PatriotBrew initiative has converted 30 coffee shop contractors to PatriotBrews. Papachrisanthou says when the vendors’ contracts are up, they’re given notice that their shops will change over to VCS management. At that point, owners and their employees are offered the opportunity to become employees of PatriotBrew.

That’s one offer Gilmore says he can refuse.

Gilmore says he currently makes $3,300 a month running Epiphany Coffee and Tea – and the salary at PatriotBrew would only be $15 an hour.

“I’m the sole supporter of my family – I can’t pay my mortgage on $15 an hour,” says Gilmore. Even though the position would come with the benefits given to federal employees, Gilmore says the switch still wouldn’t be worth it.

He adds he’s been trying to cut back on stress since having two heart attacks, but the idea of having to start over In 90 days has been weighing heavily on his mind.

President Barack Obama will travel to the Oklahoma City area on Sunday, White House press secretary Jay Carney announced Wednesday.

Obama will go “to see firsthand the response” to the tornadoes and storms that hit the region earlier this week, and will meet with families affected by the destruction.

He will also meet with first responders and thank them for their work, Carney said.

What a hypocritical asswipe you are.
Read this you ignorant phony:
WHO PAYS THE INCOME TAXES IN AMERICA? The list of Democrats complaining the ... We are going to take back America in 2012.~~~~~~~~~ Exclusive ...
allow me to share some enlightening data on who pays what income tax in the United States. We have a progressive (or regressive if you choose to look it the tax code correctly) in 2009, the latest available figures on income tax collection:
• The top 1%(1.4 million) paid 40.42% on income of $2.8 trillion.
• The top 2.5%( 5.65 million) paid 20.2%
• The top 5%( 7 million) paid 60%
• The top 10% paid 71.2% of all income taxes on income of $4.227 trillion.
Collected taxes :$794 billion
The bottom 50% of American taxpayers paid only 7.89 % of all Federal taxes collected !!
You pay more taxes you doofus.
See what I mean??

You're so dumb, you earlier complained about the Gov't printing money and giving it to the Wall St. fatcats.

Now you're defending those same Wall St. fatcats, saying they pay enough taxes.

You happen to be on both sides of the issue, you moron.

Gawd, you people are ssooo stupid!! It's like you can't make up your small minds.

I kinda miss Gunner, if only to watch Emaam suck up to him.

My favorite was when Gunner said;

"Why shucks, you're just a kid".

Had all the makings of an older moron, younger moron affair.

But alas, Rmoney lost, and Gunner hasn't been seen since. Leaving Emaam alone and afraid..........

YUou are making your own accusation, based on hatred alone. Because there is nothing to indicate anything of the sort.
Regardless of what Rupert Murdoch puts in his WSJ, which is a sad copy of what it was before Murdoch bought it and turned it into FOX Yellow Journal.
"if it turns out"
That's a long way from a proven burglary and cover up committed by, I might add, a REPUBLICAN President, who was forced to resign in disgrace.
But idiots like you will cling to any sort of stupidity in your racist hatred for this man.
You're still an idiot, Carol. Some things never change.
As soon as Holder is forced to resign, the wall protecting this president will begin to crack.
