    No it is not to political .
    It is a variation on a theme of a petition .
    Starbucks is a for-profit company and not forbidden to become involved in ideas targeting legislative branches .

    I’m sure Starbucks pays taxes here in the US. They are entitled to voice an opinion. The customers and stockholders will decide if this action is going too far.

    According to Mitt Romney (and The Supreme Court) Corporations are people. So the First Amendment applies to them. If Chick Fil-A can discriminate against gays, why can’t Starbucks plead for us all to Come Together? The Beatles would approve. 😉

      I’m sure gays can go to Chick Fil-A and get all the chicken sandwiches they want on any given day….

      There is no harm in corporate interests being involved in the political process. In fact, if they want to survive they NEED to be involved. This administration believes in three things: Taxing, Spending, Regulating. If you’re not participating in the game, you get run over. I think it would be wise to have all parties sit down over a cup and get this thing done. Starbucks can provide the joe!
