Really people? This is what Americans have found to unite on and protest on? Seriously people? An international conglomerate corporation is closing 600 of their stores and THIS is what you unite your protest and petition efforts again? OH NO!!! I might have to walk or drive an extra 2 BLOCKS to find another Starbucks. Look, plain and simple, Starbucks is a victim of their own business plan. Its called OVERSATURATION!!! I was in NYC once and stood in front of a Starbucks and then turned around and saw ANOTHER STARBUCKS. Look I love coffee MORE than the next person but seriously people, why don't you unite to protest REAL concerns in this world such as US Policies around the world? Equal Rights? Global Warming? Our down turning economy??, its coffee. Wow. Americans have once again found a way to embarrass me.
