Tall Carmel Frappuccino with a slice of lemon pound cake every time I go into Starbucks… but the GOP won’t get the message until we finish the job we started on November 6th and kick the rest of them out of Congress… Speaker Pelosi will take back the gavel in 2015.

I think Americans could help raise much needed revenue by not buying coffee at Starbucks and instead buying a $1 cup of coffee at their local gas station and sending the $3 they saved in to Washington.

The ones to whom $4 for a cup of mud is nothing are the ones who need a message on their cups because they haven't reconciled the Nov.6th message or figured out how fragmented and inept the GOP is these days.

Starbucks to close 8.5% of its locations in 2013. In related news the gay suicide rate is expected to rise 8.5% in 2013 with the sale of Birkenstocks to slide by 50%.

Gas station coffee?

Not too bad if it's a station where the truckers come and go.
The coffee is fresh.

Only them one percent folks can afford that Starbucks coffee, I say add a 50% tax to Starbucks coffee sales so the Federal Government can let me have some coffee with caramel and latte in in too.
Its only fair.
How about a coffee with a shot of envy? That should hold you for now.

When I walk by Starbucks and see those people with money sitting there with their laptops drinking that expensive coffee I think, is this what we have become America. I should be allowed to enjoy the privileges these people have even though my financial situation is bleak. Its not fair, I should be able to go in there and slap down some government card and get any coffee I want and they should provide laptops for those who do not have one.
I bet the people in there are talking about future business opportunities and I am missing out only because of my financial situation, its not fair and something should be done to level the playing field.
Paying $5 for coffee is not a privilege, it's an outrage. Equally outrageous is having every table taken by nerds nursing a drink they bought four hours ago, who think Starbucks owes them office space.

Still I confess that my wife and I like to stop by now and then for short drips (smallest size regular coffee) and a couple of pastries. However, we do not discuss future business opportunities. Instead we discuss more modest issues, like how to change the universe.

As for your coffee and laptop envy, you might try Venezuela or Cuba.

I live within a wedge distance of the most liberal college in the US, Emory University, and the Starbucks on the edge of the campus is where I get my stereotypes. I'm not kidding, the place is full of either ponytailed ex hippies in their birkenstocks, or depending on the season, Asian students with their heads buried in their laptop...for hours. In fact the entire high cost college is overwhelmed with asian and indian students, with a few quota blacks for diversity. A few jews down from NY, NJ to round it off, and you've got the most stereotypical diverse college on earth....it's got everything except straight white guys.

You are talking about my people. I just love my stereotypes, especially the ones who undo their ponytails to reveal their true status-quo-fighting identities.
