Starbucks Chief a Job Creator!

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

I’m not a Starbuck’s guy.  I just don’t either take or have the time to “hang out” to enjoy my morning cup of  Joe.  But I’ll say this.  I have great admiration for Starbuck’s chairman and chief executive Howard Schultz.  (Pictured above).He has built a company fro scratch to over 7000 stores Nationwide. I was with him last week participating in the Washington Ideas Forum, and the guy make s a lot of sense.  I applaud the way he has called for a boycott of politician contribution s to both parties, demanding that Democrats and Republicans cut out the insidious partisanship and starting working for America.  He now is calling for a nationwide effort, with Starbucks in the lead, to begin lending money to small business.  This guy seems to have it though out petty well.  Maybe he should be running for President.  You can hear him below.
