The true Leftist hates Starbucks; it's not as evil as McDonald's or Wal-Mart, but it's still a soulless corporation, and, all else being equal, Ernesto and Snowflake would much rather seek out an independent coffeehouse that buys only certified cruelty-free coffee from free-range beans.

And espresso snobs disparagingly call it "charbucks" (beans over-roasted, etc.), she said, in that special "could it be further off topic" way of hers.

I never understood startbucks. I just want a cup of coffee. Black.

I feel like I need a manicure to effectively appreciate whatever it is they've got. Mocha frappe latte choco skim cream grande? No thanks. I just want coffee. Black.

As for hanging around in a coffee shop? I don't see the charm. I'd just as soon sit in my car. Alone.

I went to a Starbucks drive thru window once (it was a coffee emergency) and I had to explain three times that all I wanted was a large coffee with milk and sugar. They still got it wrong...

The first Volvo dealership to up in flames will result in the greatest of oppressive security measures, in my view.
