Starbucks feels the Trump Effect
Donsurber.com, by Don Surber

Trump Effect: engaging in a feud with Donald John Trump increases the chances of something bad happening to you, while he rolls merrily along the way. Starbucks is the latest to learn not to mess with Trump. During the campaign, then-Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz backed Hillary. In September, he said, "I am confident that Hillary Clinton will become the next president of the United States." No problem. Voting for or donating money to Cruella de Vil does not get you in trouble. This does. "The world is screwed up. People are unsettled. There is a tremendous amount of pressure and

All this virtue signaling. As soon as hiring the "refugees" was announced, part-timers had their hours cut. The the same thing occurred when the military hiring was announced.

How good a place is Starbucks to work and show them any loyalty?

I make good coffee at home.
If I want the Starbux effect I´ll pour myself a cup, yell out my own name incorrectly, light a five dollar bill on fire and then scrape the ashes into the coffee cup.

I prefer the Trump effect where I pour my coffee and just say MAGA Baby!!

Sorry, I can’t choke down that swill they call coffee at McDonalds, or deal with the plasma temps.

But I look for alternatives to Starbucks when I can find one, and it would be nice if there were a competing national chain.

Here in Seattle there are many competing chains, though they may be only local. There´s good coffee to be had on every corner. Mr. Schultz you couldn´t leave a good thing alone could you? Coffee wasn´t enough for you. I hope to see you and your profits swill down the drain like your coffee grounds.

Quit Starbucks over a year ago and discovered Dutch Bros. They are a small, community-oriented chain with fun music and friendly employees and a drive-through sensibility! Unfortunately, they are only in a few states.

A bus driver was caught on camera watching more than the road — viewing clips of classics like “Mrs. Doubtfire” and browsing YouTube while barreling down a New York highway earlier this week. The unidentified driver for Tour America was spotted by passenger Barry Fisk after the bus left Manhattan around 8:30 a.m. Monday. Fisk, who was headed to Woodbury Common Premium Outlets with his wife, said the driver started watching videos on his phone immediately after shoving off. “Honestly, I wanted to get up and kill him,” Fisk, of London, told The Post Friday during a phone interview. “He

A Texas appeals court last week struck down a state law that criminalized the sharing of sexually explicit photos and videos of an individual online without their consent, ruling the “revenge porn” measure a violation of the First Amendment. The 12th Court of Appeals in Tyler — about 98 miles east of Dallas — said the law was too broad and infringed on free speech with its restrictions on sharing inherently expressive media online, the Texas Tribune reported. The “revenge porn” statute “is an invalid content-based restriction and overbroad in the sense that it violates rights of too many third

Police have launched an investigation after a camera was discovered last week inside a restroom at a Starbucks store in an Atlanta suburb. A 25-year-old customer reportedly found the device Tuesday, taped under a baby changing station. According to a police report, the woman removed the camera and alerted the manager. The manager then notified Starbucks’ corporate office. “We were quite concerned to learn this and are grateful to our customers and partners who took action to involve local authorities,” a Starbucks spokesperson told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The manager gave the camera to police for inspection. Authorities reportedly found 25

The American people have turned against Robert Mueller, and that’s the least of his problems. Late on the Friday afternoon of February 16, 2018, Mueller indicted 13 Russians for such heinous crimes as creating fake identities on Facebook and Twitter and organizing rallies, both for and against Donald Trump, as well as spending more than $100,000 on political ads -- all this, for the purpose of interfering with the United States Presidential Election -- keep in mind, not a single indicted person will ever see the inside of an American courtroom since there is no extradition treaty between our country

Barbara Pierce Bush was remembered Saturday as a loyal and devoted wife, stern but affectionate mother, good-humored friend and authentic first lady at a funeral attended by four former presidents including her husband and son. Past presidents and pizzeria owners, heads of state and historians, and people from all walks of life crowded into St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston to pay their respects to Barbara Bush, the former first lady who touched many across the nation with her no-nonsense style and affinity for helping others. Mrs. Bush died Tuesday at age 92. Despite her many roles, her son Jeb

The Times of Israel reports: The Palestinians will not allow US President Donald Trump or anyone else to say that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Saturday. The Palestinians, Abbas said, will continue to fight Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as they have been doing for the past few months. “The Palestinians will not allow any country to move its embassy to Jerusalem before there’s a solution [to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict],” Abbas said, during a meeting with Arab delegates attending a conference in Ramallah on laboratory medicine.

Parents in cities across the U.S. as well as Canada, Australia, and now, the U.K. are pulling their children out of schools Monday to protest what they view as “pornographic,” “gender-bending” sex ed curricula conducted and promoted by taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood. “A few of us moms were disgusted by the evidence we were seeing on social media of graphic sex ed in the schools and the stories about gender transition parties and teaching kids to question their gender,” Sex Ed Sit Out organizer Elizabeth Johnston – the “Activist Mommy” – tells Breitbart News. “So we decided to stop griping about

On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher expressed concern that the Stormy Daniels story is “taking a lot of energy away from real issues.” While interviewing Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, Maher stated that he worries that despite all the “giddiness” on the left, Trump will simply pardon everyone or not show up for a deposition. He added, “But, my other worry about it is that it’s taking a lot of energy away from real issues.” Avenatti countered, “I think the cover-up and lying to the American people is always a real issue.” Maher responded, “Yes, but it’s

President Donald Trump speculated about the nature of the Russia special counsel on Friday, pointing out that it was the result of an illegal leak to the media. “James Comey illegally leaked classified documents to the press in order to generate a Special Council?” Trump asked on Twitter. “Therefore, the Special Council was established based on an illegal act?” Trump made his comments after news broke that the Justice Department inspector general was investigating if Comey leaked classified information by giving a friend memos of his conversations with the president. Although Comey redacted some of the information in his memos, some details

First-term Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is emerging as a Democratic presidential contender in 2020. However, according to Politico, her own voters in California do not really know much about her. In an article titled “Kamala Harris’ rapid rise confounds California,” Politico’s David Siders writes: Kamala Harris has been called “the female Barack Obama.” She’s built a national following with her outspoken criticism of Donald Trump and prolific fundraising for fellow Democrats. But the California senator’s rapid rise — she’s just 15 months into her first term — has created an awkward issue: Even as progressives tout her as one of

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

Even as a nobody senator, she´s been the subject of dozens, perhaps scores of speculative stories about her future, so now -- lest they build her up too quickly -- Politico and other Democrat cheerleaders are cautioning her to get her ducks in order before heading out on the hustings: "Kamala Harris has been called “the

And since that day, my voice has never been heard again. I am entombed where none can hear my jangling bells, for doing nothing more than walking down the street, saying that women who get abortions

A California school district says that parents can’t opt out of a new sex education course that will deal with abortion, homosexuality and transgender issues. California passed a law called the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015 to promote “healthy attitudes” about “gender [and] sexual orientation.” The law is meant to teach students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods” and allow for “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.” The law also gives parents the ability to opt-out of this education and said that the “pupil” shall not be punished academically in any way if they don’t

The lawsuit is filed in federal court in the Southern District of New York (Manhattan). The DNC alleges a multitude of claims including conspiracy and violations of everything from conspiracy to violations of copyright law and the Trade Secrets Act. “One of the most notable things about the complaint,” says CBS News is the sheer number of defendants — the

Norm Macdonald, in addition to being the best Weekend Update anchor ever, is also a keen student of human nature. Last year he summed up the results of the 2016 presidential election with this koan-like observation: "People hated Hillary Clinton so much that they voted for someone they hated more than Hillary Clinton in order to rub it in." I really think that sums up our current moment. A lot of people, myself included, underestimated just how tired of Hillary everyone was.
