    My son long ago had the right idea after moving to Portland, OR.
    He has taught me — BUY LOCAL, SUPPORT LOCAL. Your dollars
    spent at Starbucks are paying for the corporate vote! What is so
    mysterious about choices you all make?

    Well, I for one will no longer buy from StarBUCKS, since the “bucks” seems to be more important than a stand for democracy.

    Schultz is being pulled in two different directions. His investors clearly see investing in politics as a smart and necessary way to proceed but most of his customers feel just the opposite. Schultz needs to learn that the customer is always right and the customer might have to gently nudge him to help him realize that and make up his mind. This should not be too difficult to do because I believe that is the way he is leaning anyway but he does have to contend with his major shareholders so maybe they are the ones that really need to be convinced.
