I have been quiet in my political posts, lately. Me ignoring the far left and far right bullcrap has been cathartic.
But, I just read a Newsweek article that has put me in a position where venting is my best option. Newsweek says that the Unicorn Frappuccino represents everything that is wrong with America. I argue that Starbucks as a whole is a more accurate representation. It is the mother ship to the hipster, entitled, crybaby, why-can’t-I-get-a-job-with-my-bachelor’s-in-modern-American-literature-to-pay-for-my-six-years-of-college, I-will-disrupt-society-because-I don’t-agree Americans.
As its clientele are those who want to pay $5 for a cup of coffee to be seen at a “cool” place, it has to cater to them. If you really want to better America, get a job to pay off your student debt and move out of your mommy’s basement. Here’s my suggestion: Invest six months in a good trade school and learn to weld, cut off your man bun, shave that beard (you don’t deserve to wear it), take off those pansy pink ears, stop marching every time you don’t get your way (because with a full-time job and the regular disappointments of life you won’t have time anyway) and start working for a living. You will soon realize that you can actually get unlimited coffee for $1.50. And yes, you can get wi-fi at Denny’s too.
