Let the imotent NOM go ahead and boycott. It's been a really useful tool in the past for such bigots. Look how they brought Disney, Ford, J.C. Penney and all those other businesses to their knees, begging the right wing nutjobs for mercy. Oh....they haven't?? My bad.

So now NOM thinks they rule the world; and are the definitive dictators of all humanity
.
This is characteristic of sociopathic personality disorder (clinical insanity)
.
Compare NOM's Brian Brown and Maggie Gallagher's statements to this check list:
.
*Profile of a Sociopath*
.
++++++++++
1. Glibness and Superficial Charm
.
2. Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.
.
3. Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."
.
4. Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.
.
5. Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
.
6. Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.
.
7. Incapacity for Love
.
8. Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.
.
9. Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.
.
10. Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.
.
11. Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.
.
12. Irresponsibility/Unreliability
Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.
.
13. Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.
.
14. Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.
.
15. Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

Here is NOM's new dump Starbucks website
http://www.dumpstarbucks.com/
.
It appears that NOM is spreading itself too thin and is starting to lose focus
.
There is only just so much NOM's 4 or 5 people can do before they lose control of their own delusions

The only thing these boycotts do is galvanize the drooling crazy-base that they already have. They don't actually DO anything.

I suppose they might use it as a tool to separate more fools from their money by saying, "Give us money to FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT evil Starbucks!!! EEEEEEVILLLLLLL!!!!!"

That usually works.

So; on the very same day; March 21; that NOM lost their vendetta against Gay Marriage in New Hampshire; Maggie was in Washington State attending a Starbucks shareholder's meeting making a big stink about Starbuck's pro-gay-marriage company policy

Can't be two places at once; Maggie. Maybe you should divide into two skinny women so you can make a fool of yourself in two different places at the same time.....

But would you pay $55 for a share of Starbucks stock? It's up nearly 500% since 2009. You can support Starbucks AND make some money while you're at it.

If she divided herself in two, there would still be two dumpy, horrible monsters left. Do we REALLY want that?? At least now there's only one of her to keep track of.

And, really, how hard is it to keep track of someone that's totally distract-able by pie and doughnuts??

Truly, though, I can't figure out how anyone can take a divorced Catholic seriously when it comes to preaching about marriage. WTF does SHE know about it anyway?

Rapist filth. I can find no other words to describe them. This is the REAL nom: not the one that parrots a fake, fake "support" for civil unions.

This is the organization that has no problem with people like the "pope" OPENING HIS MOUTH about this; has no problem with churches who OPEN THEIR MOUTHS about this, but who dares to criticize a corporation that is far, far more within its rights -- exponentially more within its rights.

I am glad that their opposition will be countering them at once with a drive in support of Starbucks. I've said it a million times, that's how it needs to be done. It doesn't matter that it looks like two children squabbling on a playground; THE ANTIGAY have made it into that, and are 100% to blame. I support completely any and all opposition to their "boycott"; I support starbucks for quite plainly telling them to fuck off.

It is really, really spine-chilling and laughable to me that nom think they have any say in this matter. It's like they're trying to INSTRUCT or FORCE others to believe so-and-so; they can choke on their puke and their tears.

Rapist filth. I can find no other words to describe them.

Good. I'll feel even better about going to Starbucks now that I know there won't be any anti-gay trash sitting beside me.

Thus sayeth the leading character from "Cow on a Hot Tin Roof"!

I've never been in a Starbucks and don't intend to start now but, if I did, it would be with a clear conscience!

Then at least buy some of their stock. It supports the company AND you make money off it as well.
