Your post is excellent in making this website known to all.
Looking at the other side, have you seen this email about Starbucks? Is this real? IF it is, then Starbucks deserves a big boycott. I also have another idea. My boss likes to hand out Starbucks $ cards for doing a good job and I have several of them. Maybe I should donate them to the most destitute homeless people I can find. I'd be doing a good deed and (I'm sure) helping out Starbucks business.
------- (the email)
Recently Marines over in Iraq supporting this country wrote to Starbucks
because they wanted to let them know how much they liked their coffee and try to score some free coffee grounds. Starbucks wrote back telling the
Marines thanks for their support in their business, but that they don't
support the War and anyone in it and that they won't send them the Coffee.
So as not to offend them we should not support in buying any Starbucks
products. As a War vet and writing to you patriots I feel we should get
this out in the open. I know this War might not be very popular with some
folks, but that doesn't mean we don't support the boys on the ground
fighting street to street and house to house for what they and I believe is
right. If you feel the same as I do then pass this along, or you can
discard it and I'll never know.
Thanks very much for your support to me, and I know you'll all be there
again here soon when I deploy once more.

Almost 5 months ago I sent an e-mail to you my faithful friends. I did a wrong thing that needs to be cleared up. I heard by word of mouth about how Starbucks said they didn't support the war and all. I was having enough of that kind of talk and didn't do my research properly like I should have. This is not true. Starbucks supports men and women in uniform. They have personally contacted me and I have been sent many copies of their company's policy on this issue. So I apologize for this quick and wrong letter that I sent out to you.
Now I ask that you all pass this email around to everyone you passed the last one to. Thank you very much for understanding about this.

It took me less than 5 seconds to deny this ignorant drivel you posted and find the truth behind the story.

Oops I could care less about your politics or your ignorance. Many soldiers receive a higher education because they are in the military. You have a problem with the war? Fine, but most of those serving in Iraq are doing so because they believe in what they are doing, most are barely more than kids yet they are contributing more to making the world a better place than you will ever even try to do. If buying a couple bags of chips, some beef jerky, and a DVD or two and sending it to them will make thier lives a little easier, I will do so.
As for your politics, # em.
