"Come Together"

As a man who doesn't care about women's sexual pleasure, I'm offended by this

Never really liked that song much

Unless they started serving bourbon in their coffee, Boehner won't see it.

I don't think he'd be one to taint good bourbon with lousy coffee, either

the words are intended as a message to lawmakers about the damage being caused by the divisive negotiations over the "fiscal cliff."

"Come Together" is a sentiment unlikely to cause controversy



That's it? That's the only divisiveness you can find in our government? And the only one that motivated an actionable stance? A fiduciary one?

Thank you corporate personage. The depth of your soul knows no bounds.

My children are descended from the Nantucket Starbucks - who were not coffee-ers, but whalers who were namechecked in Moby Dick - and who married into the Folger family, who were coffee-ers.

If I pay good money to order three cups of coffee, I want the following written on them:

Cup #1 - "Come together"

Cup #2 - "right now"

Cup #3 - "over me"

/Probably what most people will think of when they see the phrase.

Zagloba: My take


Agree 100%.

I'm already seeing comments from conservative relatives on Facebook that Starbucks is pushing a "liberal message" with this "come together" nonsense. The left is pissed at Starbucks because what's being discussed and offered by democrats is bad policy. The right is pissed at Starbucks because they dare suggest both parties work together on something when everyone knows democrats are inhuman monsters who must be eliminated.

But both sides are the same. Right.

Come Together was written from the viewpoint of a groupie that intended for the Beatles to "Cum together over me." Anyone who says differently is a charlatan and a fizzle.

No doubt this heartfelt message of bland shallow neutrality will be just what it takes to overcome the deep partisan divide impeding our national economic recovery.

Kudos to Starbucks for risking it all on such a courageous stance.

/what, was "Do Something" already taken?

While companies generally steer clear of politics to avoid alienating customers, the plea to "Come Together" is a sentiment unlikely to cause controversy.

Writes an author who apparently missed the part where the GOP went so far off the deep end that willingness to work with Democrats gets GOP candidates primaried for not being conservative enough.

He's from Ohio.
He's never tasted good bourbon - it isn't allowed to go north over the border.

Suggest to your relatives that they pick up a Starbucks latte to go with their Chik-Fil-A. Sowing political dissension among one's conservative relations should be encouraged.

The "fiscal cliff" refers to the steep tax hikes and spending cuts set to take effect Jan. 1, unless the White House and Congress reach an agreement to avoid them.

whomever wrote this should be banned as a reporter and made to give back any salary he/she has received this last calendar year.

Sorry Howard, the problem isn't Congress, it's the American people who voted all the right-wing dipshiats back into the House of Representatives.

You want gridlock? Keep voting Republican.

I don't care what their politics are, anyone ruining good bourbon with that swill they serve at Starbucks deserves to be slapped silly, because they appreciate neither coffee nor bourbon.

I'm not seeing what you're disagreeing with, unless it's the "steep" tax hikes.
 
2012-12-26 05:47:02 PM
Of course Starbucks cares about this. Expensive coffees are one of the first things people will stop spending money on if their taxes suddenly get hiked up.
 
2012-12-26 05:55:16 PM
Starbucks courageously takes up the politically dangerous BSABSVR position.

the (false) impression is that Jan one we pitch into fiscal disaster unless congress acts before then. the (false) part should have given you the idea how i feel about that. yeah the "steep" part is crap to start with but what folks don't understand because the media has don't an absolutely shiatty job here is that while certain things will happen they can be mitigated even after Jan one. it is NOT A CLIFF. it's a slope that gradually gets steeper.

Am I really the only one who can remember when certain Christmas songs were banned censored STRONGLY ENCOURAGED not to be played back in 2001 because of the impending Afghanistan War because of 9/11?

With themes like "Peace on Earth" and such, they just weren't "politically appropriate for the current climate"... remember? Anyone?
 
2012-12-26 07:48:55 PM
It's a good idea, but they should find a way to phrase it in latin, so it seems even more badass and pretentious. Maybe something like "from many, one" then just make that their motto and put it on the most common, inescapable atoms of their brand. You know, something they print billions or even trillions of every year.

Did they troll us by making their coffee not taste like shiat? Because thats the trolling I want from Starbucks

karasoth: Did they troll us by making their coffee not taste like shiat? Because thats the trolling I want from Starbucks


You know what? I decided a long time ago that as long as there were pretentious farkers out there who were dumb enough to pay seven dollars for that stuff, I really didn't care.

I view a Starbucks cup in someone's hand as a clear indicator of how much trouble I should waste on them.

This would have been a harmless, but pointless, bit of fluff, except the CEO posted a link to fixthedebt.org for people to learn more.
