Donald supporters and hit sales

Howard Schultz, the current CEO of Starbucks, will step down from his role at the giant coffee chain next month. The move comes after his vow to hire thousands refugees in response to President Donald Trump´s first travel ban appeared to hurt customer sentiment and dent their sales. Trump supporters have called for a boycott of the chain since January 29, when Schultz vowed to hire 10,000 refugees over five years. Schultz in a letter to employees said the promise of the American Dream was ´being called into question´ and that ´the civility and human rights we have all taken

The terminlogy is mudddled. It´s illegal immigrants that are the issue to me, not legitimate refugees. And illegals are probably what he meant.

I hope we never renounce the spirit of Lady Liberty, which has been a beacon of hope and transcendence around the world for many decades.

I still won´t buy anything from Starbucks. Anybody else think Schultz still has a little company stock? If the price rebounds now, he could stand to profit quite handsomely from the downturn caused by his anti-Trump gaffe.

Besides, I like both Java Beach and Peet´s better than Star*ucks.

Good one, #32!

I went into a Starbucks once or twice, but could NOT bring myself to pay the prices they were demanding.

I note this ´Sergeant Schultz´ guy is not leaving, he is just moving to a different ´executive´ position within the company.
"to Step Down" is not a true statement.
The usual D-M disregard for the truth.

Thursday at the White House, President Donald Trump directed Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to investigate the import of aluminum and its effect on national defense. Trump said, “Today I’m calling on Secretary Ross to prioritize the investigation he initiated yesterday into whether the foreign aluminum imports are jeopardizing our security and to issue a report based on his findings. Based on those findings, Secretary Ross will make formal recommendations to the White House as to what to do about the problem and whether or not we do tariffs or taxes or something else to get our aluminum business going again.

President Donald Trump imposed less than one percent of the regulatory burdens that former President Barack Obama did during his first 100 days, according to a new study from the American Action Forum. The conservative think tank tracked regulatory costs created by each administration during their first 100 days. AAF found that Obama imposed $4 billion in regulatory costs while Trump imposed less than one percent of that at $28 million. Trump, whose deregulatory actions AAF suggested were a "success," didn´t approve any major new regulations during his first 100 days but was able to slash regulatory costs. The Market

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., argued Thursday that President Trump and Republicans in Congress will have "doo-doo stuck to their shoe for a long time" if they pass the revised American Health Care Act (AHCA). The comments came a day after the AHCA received a boost in support from the House Freedom Caucus, which announced it would back the bill. "I think President Trump is really making fools of the members of Congress, of his own party," she said in her weekly press conference.

Texas House OKs ‘sanctuary city’
ban with tough jail penalty
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article

AUSTIN, Texas— The Republican-controlled Texas House approved early Thursday a strict ban on “sanctuary cities” in the country’s second-largest state, seeking to empower law enforcement to enforce federal immigration law against anyone they detain and threatening to jail police chiefs and sheriffs who refuse to do so. The vote came just before 3 a.m. and followed 15-plus hours of heated, sometimes tearful debate, much of it from outnumbered Democrats. The bill would allow Texas to withhold funding from county and local governments for acting as sanctuary cities — even as the Trump administration’s efforts to do so nationally have hit

Patrons are offered a chance to earmark where their money goes. When they buy a drink, they get a token to drop into one of a half-dozen jars, each labeled with the name of a nonprofit group.

Although President Donald J. Trump promised to defund Planned Parenthood if elected president, and the GOP House and Senate often claim that they want to defund the group, there reportedly is no language in the continuing resolution to fund the government through next September to defund Planned Parenthood, a group that has performed approximately 81,567 abortions since Trump´s inauguration on Jan. 20. That´s about 877 abortions per day, 36 per hour, or 1 every two minutes.

The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said
