Will Starbucks test new refugee employees for TB (San Diego off the charts)?

Starbucks held a hiring event exclusively for refugees in El Cajon, California on Tuesday, part of its recently announced commitment to hire more than 10,000 refugees over the next five years.

    Can’t boycott what I don’t buy ever.
    However, I did get my wife to switch to French’s ketchup so we wouldn’t buy Heinz anymore.

      I switched to French’s too after Heinz dissed French’s in a commercial. I’d been using them in tandem on hot dogs and hamburgers since the 60’s.

    If I could afford it I’d boycott it.

    El Cajon, you say? I remember this like it was yesterday:

    Shaima Alawadi was murdered on March 21, 2012 in El Cajon, California in Greater San Diego. She was a 32-year-old American citizen who had emigrated from Iraq in the early 1990s. She was beaten to death in her home. Although her death was initially seen as a hate crime, her 48-year-old husband was eventually charged with killing her. He was convicted of murder and sentenced to 26 years to life in prison.

    I almost wish I went to Starbucks just so I could stop.

      If a business has a cashier with a hijab, I always go to the non-enemy cashier. If a business only has a cashier with a hijab, I don’t give them my business.

      Unfortunately, I’m a miser extreme and few, if any boycottable places actually get business from me.

        I do the exact opposite – if the business has a cashier with a hijab and it’s a grocery store, that’s the cashier I choose. I try to initiate small talk (it’s not allowed for an unaccompanied female to talk to a man who is not her husband) – if there are Israeli products in my grocery cart – I make sure they are face up and I try to initiate conversation about them e.g. “Have you tried this Israeli jam it’s wonderful?”
        I make sure to pay with change in my payment and I place it in the woman’s hand. (she’s not supposed to touch a Kufar let alone the son of a monkey and pig).
        If the business is not a grocery store I still choose the Muslima – after all it’s important to keep her busy – let her peers enjoy a breather – by keeping her busy she avoids impure thoughts.

          Interesting strategy – you must be very popular with the muslimas. Do you ever get a reaction from them, even a slight tightening of facial muscles, a grimace of distaste, a small shudder of revulsion at having to deal with a kufar like yourself? I suppose a few of them really don’t give a hoot and are essentially muslima in name only … but it’s impossible to tell just by looking at them or talking to them for a few moments.

          I hope you bleached you hands afterwards.

        If I see them anywhere – on the street, in the mall, whatever – I make sure to give them a wide birth. I feel simultaneously angered, sickened and (it must be conceded) somewhat scared (because of the direction our society is going in. When there are enough of them ….

        I travel a lot, the airports are infested with them. It really makes you nervous knowing there are so many potential attacks, you have to have your head on a swivel. I won’t use any store or eating establishment that has a muslim working in it. I almost couldn’t get lunch in Detoilet airport yesterday until I found a chic filet that didn’t have muslims working in it. I had picked up some items in Dulles and when I went to pay there was a muslim at the register. I just put it back and left. I won’t spend any money at a place that hires them.

    I got sick of Starbucks when I saw how the lowered middle class whites wanted to look like smug elites with so much money they buy a $3.00 drink for $7.00 and sit there with the iPad and iPhone to check for the next anti Corporation rally and Global Warming speaker .

    I posted this before, but a few years ago I was somewhere in the great state of Texas. I saw a Starbucks sign on the side of a building beside the coffee shop. Someone had painted over the “B” and made it look like an “F”. It is even more appropriate now then it was then.

    Guess the company will be providing more than just over-priced coffee.

    Active antibiotic resistant TB found in carriers from the Shitistans takes about one year to treat and that costs about $1m.
    The biggest difficulty is the third world “patient” tends to disappear mid treatment once “he decides he is feeling fine”.

      Well, if the “authorities” thought this outcome was a problem, I’m sure they’d be right on it … solving … solving.

      This is another “how” civilizations die.

      Shall we start building communicable disease isolation hospitals and quarantine stations again?
