Joe Huffman floated an idea to a few gun bloggers over the weekend to organize a Starbucks appreciation day. I thought it sounded like a good idea, so I’ll join in asking people to participate.
This coming Sunday, February 21st we’re asking folks to go to Starbucks and buy something. But, perhaps most importantly, to let them know you’re taking part in an appreciation day organized by Second Amendment bloggers. Joe suggests telling the local folks, but I’m going to suggest you tell Starbucks corporate after you make your purchase. Corporate are the decision makers. So, next Sunday, I would suggest something like the following:
Some Second Amendment bloggers have organized an appreciation day, asking their readers to go patronize their local Starbucks this Sunday. Just wanted you folks to know that I went myself and enjoyed some XXXX, YYYY, and ZZZZ in appreciation for Starbucks continuing its focus on making a great products and great service rather than making statements on contentious social issues as the Brady Campaign suggests. Thanks for standing up to them.
I figure even if they only get a few hundred responses, it at least gives them a sense of the depth of passion on this issue, and this isn’t something just being driven by interest groups in Washington (well, at least on our side).
