I have never been inside a Starbuck’s, and I don’t plan on doing that anytime soon. Like, how much money can you cough up for a cup of coffee?
It’s bad enough they call their employees “baristas.” But recently, in an unsuccessful attempt to inject liberal politics into the most ordinary aspects of life, the top banana of Starbuck’s ordered his peons–er, baristas–to invite customers to “talk about race” while they had their coffee.
This little boat sank in a sea of public mockery ( http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3000260/Starbucks-PR-fail-Twitter-mockery-causes-coffee-executive-delete-account-customers-say-NOT-want-talk-racism-ordering-coffee.html ).
“Hi, here’s your coffee. Now let’s talk about racism.”
Oh, what fun Lenny Bruce would’ve had with that straight line!
This caper is yet another living example of the lib’s entitlement mind-set. Because he’s so much smarter than you, so much better, so morally superior, he can just invade your space anytime he wants–or, better yet, downright delicious, he can order someone else to do it for him. Liberal heaven!
When you’re a lib big shot, you don’t have to solve problems. Indeed, you can even do stuff that makes the problems worse. Nothing matters but your own self-righteousness: and the cheaper it comes, the more you like it.
If there was ever a right time for a pie in the face…
