Meh. This is just a way to get publicity...the loss of sales from the people "offended" by this will be made up for by the Occupy Wallstreet crowd who will buy 4 soy lattes a day and rally around it.

Eta: but it will be fun to compare the reactions between this and Chic-Fil-A

Much like I supported Dan Cathy's right to voice his opinion in the matter I support Tom Strobhar's right to voice his. And he is absolutely correct when he says that if you are a shareholder, and disagree with the way a company is being run, you can sell the stock and stop supporting them financially. Good for him.

No worries, too expensive anyway. But if I ever did want to stop there, not any more.

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.


I don't see a problem here.

I'm probably going to go to Starbucks tomorrow, and I'll use the boost from my drink to promote my traditional marriage opinions.

Chick- fil-a CEO says he believes in traditional marriage, but welcomes gay customers and hires gays. Starbucks CEO," we don't want your business if you believe in traditional marriage". Now who is the tolerant group again?!

Misrepresentation.

He isn't telling them he doesn't want their business, he is telling a shareholder he can always sell if he doesn't like his policies.

Then you don't understand Schultz's fiduciary responsibility to shareholders.
