A Terrorist Is A Terrorist 

Looks like there was a bit of excitement at one of San Francisco's Starbucks:

Bomb found in coffee shop -- nearby streets closed off

It seems like those in the know believe that this may be linked to some past vandalism at other SF Starbucks locations. Apparently those perpetrators felt those Starbucks locations should be replaced with local coffee shops.

I can't say I disagree with that. Starbucks is the company that charged New York recuse workers for water on September 11. Plus, they committed the unforgivable excuse of introducing the word "Venti" into the American lexicon. I don't go to Starbucks. Maybe only with friends and co-workers a few times per year.

Still, the nutjob (or nutjobs) who came up with this little prank need some punishment brought into their existence. You do not put a pipe bomb into a busy eating establishment! Where exactly is the exception to the rule that says we don't hurt innocent people who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

There's a word for a person who thinks it's OK to kill, maim, or damage the property of innocents, attacking without even trying to avoid causing pain to innocents. That word is : terrorist.

Think it's cute to put a pipe bomb in a Starbucks and show up "the man?" It wouldn't be cute to the person who was just stopping by to get a cup of coffee and lost a limb as a result of your "political beliefs."

Oh, so maybe you think anyone who frequents a Starbucks deserves what the get. There's a word for that too: psychopath. Society has ways of dealing with either type of person.

Catch the guy, throw him down a dark hole, and let civilized methods like boycotts be the method of showing displeasure with a political or corporate entity.

A-f***ing-men dude!

I couldn't have been any more blunt about it...
