    To answer this question, I would have to assume that your post is accurate, that Costco is doing "so good" against Sams. And when a leftist makes a statement like that, it would have to be validated since most leftists will post horseshit that isn't even true.

    #1......stupidity. #2 the average Liberal likes to look sophisticated and really intelligent while sipping coffee and reading a book at Star Bucks, while they run up the tab on their credit/debit cards. It's a social status thing. As far as how Star Bucks is doing financially, I really don't care.

    I have no idea what either of them pay their employees, and I really don't care either. But with the growth of the progressive/liberal movement, Star Bucks should be doing pretty good in the larger cities since they are loaded with leftist elites. (Yuppies)

    If the Louisville Airport Starbucks is any indication of how the company is doing, they are killing it
    Line out the door, every seat taken, 8 people with masters degrees in 17th century French poetry pouring me a cup of over priced coffee.

    The people who these low wage jobs were intended for really don't want to work. And when our govt. supports the dependency of that Govt. check, and even rewards the hosebags for having more children and not getting married, those jobs stay vacant because the low wage earners (uneducated) are better off just staying in "the system" instead of working.

    And most of those fools can't afford to put furniture in their apartment or they are still living in their parents basements. But dang, they sure look awesome sipping that coffee with the other yuppies.

    I couldn't tell you what their coffee tastes like. I finished a cup of Star Bucks "pumpkin" flavor or something like that was offered to me, about a year ago.
    Expensive coffee doesn't impress me any. What impresses me is when I see people who took that extra six dollars (that most people waste on Star Bucks coffee) and invested it instead, and that allows them to spend lots of time on Truckingboards chewing the fat. Now that's impressive, and Conservative.

    Your buddy Northern Flash thinks people who over pay for coffee at Starbucks are "stupid"......but I'm sure he'd give you a pass though.....

    Thought I was the only one who had that opinion. Those places are everywhere and I bought their coffee twice, it really sux and the place is a pain.
    Dunkin Donuts is the best imho.

    Nothing different than anyone else that is trying to shelter their money..... Why are you upset at just the Clintons for doing it?

    Oh... I get it....it makes her a hypocrite....well in a way it does......and so is Trump who "promises" to make America great...and bring jobs back, while continuing to off shore his own jobs.....but at least she is acknowledging that herself, and other wealthy people need to pay more....

    Im not sure that would be great either...no loopholes...nice idea...I'd have to think about that more to further comment on it....

    Sanders isn't taking what you earned and "giving it" to others...... He is talking about prioritizing how our tax dollars are being spent..... We already pay taxes.....we should use them to benefit society in general.....not just giving it away to the military/industrial complex for things we don't need....
    The talking heads on t.v. and radio like you to think he's taking all your money and giving directly to "lazy freeloaders"......when actually he is proposing use of taxpayer money to benefit the taxpayers...

    I'll take you at your word on that since I didn't listen......but I would say it is probably almost as easy....it depends on the priorities of the person......if they want a glock...they will get one....same for a book or anything else...the issue is how does society get people to change their priorities...

    That's the biggest problem....everything is about politics rather than what's important for the best interests of society...

    Maybe...just maybe the police did act stupidly......but that was just a reference to those cops that were involved in that incident.....not a sweeping "attack" on all police..... Every profession has people that act stupidly....but that doesn't mean everyone in those professions are stupid...

    True.....whether you realize it or not, we are increasingly becoming globalized....

    If Bush had not invaded Iraq in the first place there wouldn't be that problem.... That was the biggest mistake....one that keeps right on "giving" too..... Most Americans realize that and wanted us out......

    Most gun owners aren't shooting people...but enough people are shooting people...yeah what about those everyday murders using guns as the weapon?.... I personally think the problem isn't going to stop...not by man...but in due course it will be corrected....

    Blame shifting between the "left" and the "right".... Yes the majority of both parties voted for war..... You see the game.... Yes both were responsible....but as long as the blame can be shifted neither of them have to face the responsibility of being held accountable..... Nice game they going isn't it.....

    Thank you.....and I also agree with you that our "house" is certainly not in order....

    And ISIS has credibility? I'd go out on a limb and say ISIS is wrong in doing what they do.....

    3 dollars each or two for 5 dollars....isn't marketing great!...look at all the money that you can "save" on "deals" like that.....

    We still have hotdogs for 12 peso's in LAST..... Bacon wrapped nonetheless!

    sadly in an airport (especially Louisville) your options are Starbucks or Starbucks
    basic coffee, no double mocha latte with boiled foam carmel extract


    I agree
    Like Pilot coffee too

    Sad but true.... At the international airport here in Guadalajara.....the "choices" travelers have when they arrive is Starbucks, Burger King....and a Krispy Cream.... Go figure...with all the fantastic restaurants there are here you'd think they would have real choices at the airport....lol

    As long as you don't post that you like Pilot87 coffee, we can remain friends.

    I can attest, as Pilot87, that Pilot87 coffee is just as bad as a Starbucks coffee.........
