"Starbucks Denies Coffee to Marines!!"

A close friend forwarded this message into my inbox this morning:

No Joe for Joe's....

Subject: Starbucks Denies Coffee To Marines!!


Starbucks Denies Coffee to Marines !!

Recently Marines in Iraq wrote to Starbucks because they wanted to let

them know how much they liked their coffee and to request that they send some of it to the troops there.

Starbucks replied, telling the Marines thank you for their support of their business, but that Starbucks does not support the


war, nor anyone in it, and that they would not send the troops their brand of coffee.

So as not to offend Starbucks, maybe we should not support them by buying any of their products!

As a war vet writing to fellow 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 no one will never know.


Thanks very much for your support. I know you'll all be there again when I deploy once more.

Ignoring for a moment the spam and farcical nature of the Starbucks e-mail, and injecting a bit of truth into the thread, maybe the Marines need to talk to Tim Hortons ;) ...




After weeks of military lobbying, Tim Hortons announced on Tuesday that they will set up a coffee shop in Kandahar to serve Canadian peacekeepers.


Apparently, Canada's largest coffee chain agrees that peacekeeping just isn't Canadian without double-doubles and Tim Bits.

That's the spirit. :)



And that isn't spam or a joke.



And before you ask Bruce, I haven't received any Nigerian bank offers....recently.:lol:
