Apparently in the minds of these people, financial success = evil. The world business haters are at their core socialists, masquerading as "compassionate liberals" and "progressives."   The success of Starbucks proves once again that the free enterprise system works, and that America works. 
It also proves that socialism is a failure for everyone except aspiring autocrats who are greedy for power and those who are "entitled" to the fruits of everyone else's labor while they do nothing of value. wrote:

the bar, and now my town has a couple of locally owned coffee s hops as a 
result, but we still don't have a starbucks.
