What a joke. I don’t ever comment on the news out there; ever. But man, this went up my ass sideways. And sorry, I’m not a big fan of endless refugees flowing into this country either, just so you know. While I was creating my A.A. Today post, one of the Veterans’ was listening to MSNBC behind me and I learned this: Starbucks CEO has pledged to hire 10,000 refugees over the next 5 years. What a joke. How about hiring 10,000 Veterans? This guy is trying to generate business for his overinflated coffee houses around the country, on the coattails of a divisive decision by our new Commander In Chief. It’s nothing more than a marketing ploy to generate for business. At the very least, in this blogger’s humble opinion, it’s an ignorant pledge.
Jackoff! Hire 10,000 Veterans who served your country! Hire men and women who willingly spent a portion of their lives ensuring that this country remain free and threat free. Hire men and women who made it so your Armani covered ass could keep wearing your expensive suits and buy another Mercedes for your driveway. Start taking care of people in this country! If there is anything left over, we’ll get back to you. I will continue to get any size cup of coffee I want at Cumberland Farms for 99 cents. And it won’t take me 10 minutes to figure out what the fuck I’m ordering. What a joke.
UPDATE: I stand corrected and retract my original post! It seems that Starbucks has in fact made a pledge to hire over 10,000 veterans, and they are well on their way to achieving their goal. Of course, it helps that every VA in the country just about now has a Starbucks in it, but heck, when I’m wrong I can admit it: I WAS WRONG!
Thank you SAMUELH73 for bringing this to my attention, and for reminding me why I should never comment on something I have no idea enough to research before opening my big fat mouth!
