    Anyone have access to Starbucks' sales figures for Feb 14th this year, vs. other years, vs. normal weekday sales?

    Did the anti gunners win, or did we win?

    What's an "anti-boycott"? Is it something like a mob based DoS attack? Everyone decides to go for coffee at 12:01 on Thursday?

    The anti-gunners were planning to boycott Starbucks for various idiotic reasons. Those of us on the pro side of the issue started an anti-boycott, or a buycott, and specifically directed more business towards Starbucks to offset the anti-gunner's boycott.

    Just wondering what the result was.

    Our area Starbucks enjoyed many pro-gun people buying coffee. Asked the girl behind the counter if she was aware of the anti gun crowd having a boycott. She said business was maybe better than normal and she grew up on a local ranch. This meant she was pro-gun and thats the way it is.

    I had a chance to buy some coffee at their establishment and it wasn't too bad. I see no signs saying I cannot carry there, so it was good.

    Well my guess would be that the boycott didn't work because if it did the lame stream media would have never stopped talking about how successful the boycott was.

    In fact it must not even been close enough to spin it into a "victory" for common sense.

    There's only one starbucks where I live. I asked the manager if sales were down and she said no. I don't think it applies as much in small towns.
