From the onset it is clear you will find (or conceive) anything you can wrong with StarBucks. It's kind of a "thing" in certain political circles (left and right).

And why not condemn them? They set such a bad example!
- part time employees earn sick leave
- part time employees earn vacation time
- part time employees earn equity in the company (stock)
- so much damn promotion from within, too!
- and that social responsibility crap by paying the growers

Doesn't taste like coffee? Artificial? Because you want to believe that. After all, they're a large successful company and there can be nothing they do that isn't suspect or outright evil. More so if it's an . . . American company!

So find any nuance for a complaint you can and be content in the club! Pat each other on the back! Go to your local cafe pretend you are a true gourmet! Knowingly nod your heads at one another! You are, after all, "IN" with the "IN" crowd.
