Make Coffee Great Again

Political cartoonist Ben Garrison's take on 
Starbucks' plan to hire 10,000 refugees
The coffee war is on! and in order to be a street fighter, here's a suggestion of attrition warfare (wearing down the enemy) for all of us - men, women and children - so that we can each do our part to win this war. Troop surge!

Starbucks says it will hire 10,000 refugees over the next five years, a response to President Donald Trump's indefinite suspension of Syrian refugees and temporary travel bans that apply to six other Muslim-majority nations.

However, Shariabucks' plan to hire 10,000 refugees worldwide over the next five years is sparking calls for a boycott from some people who said the company 
should focus on hiring American workers.

Scott Baio, an actor and outspoken Trump

supporter, asked the chain why it wasn't focusing on hiring "unemployed Blacks, Hispanics, & Veterans."

Make your Shariabucks barista say it...

...while wearing this T-shirt!

In addition, Baio has made it his mission in life to force Starbucks' employees to yell President Trump's name while he’s making Starbucks runs for other people (Scott doesn't drink coffee). Baio tweeted a photo explaining his plot.

This would be great fun and while we're doing it, we need to wear the bright red "Make Coffee Great Again" T-shirt.

This T-shirt is a product of Black Rifle Coffee Company which was founded by veteran Evan Hafer, to provide a high-quality, roast-to-order, coffee to the pro 2A and veteran communities. Between deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, Hafer said, "I was working to refine both my coffee roasting skills and my firearms skills...I have spent over a decade researching coffee, refining my roast profiles and (of course) drinking what I roast. Black Rifle Coffee is quite literally the combination of my two favorite passions. I take pride in the coffee we roast, the veterans we employ and the causes we support."

According to the Department of Labor, the unemployment rate for veterans is 4.6 percent.

Therefore Black Rifle Coffee Company is responding to
Starbuck's CEO Howard Schultz by vowing to hire 10,000 veterans. "We want to shift the conversation away from foreign policy to domestic issues that hit closer to home. We need to keep in mind that the four things we care about at BRCC are Family, Business, Veterans and country," the company posted on its Instagram page. "And when we say 'country', the taxpayers. Everyone else can take a hike."
