Maybe Hero is too much, but certainly Schultz is a great American.
From the little I know of him, I believe God will look kindly upon him.
We all know the NRA is in an all-out propaganda war against any gun legislation, no matter how sensible it is, or favored by the majority of citizens. Money and organization do talk, or at least it has for the NRA.
As I think about this, the NRA is a good mesh for the republican , either you are for us or you are against us, party. An organization the tolerates no dissent and demands strict obedience. It reminds me of #$%$ Germany where propaganda flowed freely and truth was just something to be manipulated to serves one's goal.
Schultz has nothing to gain, other than setting a good moral example, and will surely face the wrath of the NRA either openly or secretly.
One can already see some of the nuts posting here about wanting their children to take guns into preschool and that their children won't be going to SBUX.
That's a good thing.
I don't want teacher's or priests armed as some NRA members have suggested.
Clearly, in voicing his feelings about this, Schultz has taken the more difficult road. He could have said nothing, and let the NRA trample the country and the rights of people who don't want nuts running around with pistols as substitutes for brains.
Again, I applaud you Mr. Schultz.
As for the nuts that have "sold all of their SBUX stock" and "won't be going to SBUX anymore", good.
Take your anger, your ammo and your children to some other coffee shop, with your weapon fully loaded of course. Hopefully you pick a hot, crowded establishment where everyone is locked and loaded for fun.
Lastly, I also applaud men that don't need a gun to be a man.
I think repubs have crippled the US by giving $3 trillion to IRAQ and AFGHAN muslims for no reason. Oh yeah , the non-existent WMDs and for 911 which was actually committed by Saudis and Egyptians.
Also think repubs and NRA are responsible for school shootings and culture of gun violence.
Why have repubs spent $1 billion trying to defeat the ACA? A lot of repub money trying to subvert the law.
Why have repubs collectively spent over $100 million contesting Obama;s clear, documented birth records?
Why did repubs try to subvert the ACA law by holding the CR and the country hostage?
Why are repubs poll number down?
Why do the people not favor politicians that vote against their will and play political games with government funding?
Repubs like to continue playing games rather than attach a clean continuing resolution bill.
I don't appreciate their extortion attempts. Will vote accordingly.
Why do they think they are above the law?
Buffet said it was very tough, very tough to turn around retailer like JCP.
You think he wants to look like an idiot?
Sounds like BS to me.
I have heard new stories about people that were under investigation for serious crimes yet still kept their union jobs.
Republicans say they can pollute forever with no consequences - as long as they keep getting funded by big oil.
Climate scientists are 95% confident -- that is to say, surer than ever -- that humans are responsible for at least "half of the observed increase in global average surface temperatures since the 1950s."
IMO ZLCS has had a history of dropping in half over the last 5 years.
The most recent example was ZLCS basing at 0.50(I know it went lower) then recovering to $1.20.
Given that the reverse split put ZLCS at $6.50, I expect that ZLCS could drop to $3.25 if it follows the pattern it has followed for last 5 years.
Isn't she the one whose family got $250,000 SuBSIDY FOR FAMILY FARM?
Didn't she get hundreds of thousands of dollars for the 23 children she managed in foster care?
Didn't her husband's clinic receive federal money?
Din't she apply for citizenship to another country?
Rates JCP a sell.
And one repub idiot from the house said he didn't care what S&P said or didn't trust their numbers.
Oh, I see dumass so why didn't JCp use equity raise at $24 instead of the $1.75 billion loan from GS?
Guess an equity raise at $10 was better for shareholders!!!
With all that $11 billion in RE that you allege, they could have just sold off a few billion.
Wonder why professional appraisers valued JCP RE at $2-$4 billion?
They must be lying of course.
LOL!!!! that was another fiasco.
I still want to know how much money she pulled in for all of those foster care children.
I also want to know the the total amount of money she and her husband have gotten from state or federal governments; the tax payers.
Include everything, her congressional salary, the money ($250,000) she got for her farm, subsidies for her husband's business, money for foster care children, and anywhere else she has her hand in the cookie jar.
Great job taking money while pointing at other people and yelling "look at them , they are taking your money."
We save $3000 per year by shopping at WMt instead of unionized grocer.
Every time I do a price comparison for same exact item, the union grocer is 25-40% higher in price.
Quaker brand USA made steel cut oats are 32% higher cost at my unionized grocer than WMT.
Us spent nearly $850 billion defense in 2011.
Us spend $350 billion in 2001. Why the huge increase?
China spend $200 billion per year.
Why do repubs want to be the world's policeman?
is it because of guilt over all of the repub draft deferrals?
If they want to lower spending, cut the $850 billion defense budget to $400 billion.
China spends $200 billion or less.
The US spends more than the the top 10 defense spending countries combined!!!!!
If you want to give more to the govt for defense then send your money in for unnecessary wars like IRAQ/AFGHAN and in future IRAN.
