Morning! It is April 25, 2017 and when I write this it is need-more-coffee-and-sleep am. A look at my plans. 1. I have an exam in Indigenous Philosophy today. I really enjoy this class.
2. I have an Omicron Delta Kapa meeting today. It is almost the end of the year and we must plan things. 3. I have homework to do.
He tried drinking the sugary sickly sweet shit what they pass off for coffee in this state. He hated it!
He was thinking about the bitter coffee he had growing up on the rez. This stuff was horid. He looked over and saw his partner officer Miller with five large cups side-by-side on her desk. Are those all for her? Good lord! “Miller! how much did that cost you per cup?, he asked.
He was amazed by the answer!
$6.50 per cup!
That is a total of $32.50 per day.
From that mental math he evaluated that she spent a total of $162.50 per week which gives her a grand total of $8450 per year.
From that day on he resolved to never drink at that insane spot called Starbucks ever again.
All they do is take and take and take and never give back. You become an attic to the corporation and they give no help. He voud to never become a sheep of the empire of starbucks.
I am doing well in California. I do miss the rez and our wide open planes, the rain dances, the corn growing from hardy stocks, the snow, oh man the snow. I cannot stand so much sunshine. I hope all my family are doing well: the sisters, brothers, the oxen, the muskrats, the birds, the corn, and you anti.
I must vent about these west coast nuts. They drink coffee like it is water. If only they knew about the real coffee we had on the rez. The worst attacker of my brother the coffee bean is my fellow officer, officer Miller.
Officer Miller has no respect for the idea of taking what she needs and no more no less. I see her taking 5 cups a day.
I feel that I must stop drinking Coffee because we are taking more than we need.
I am aware that it is sacred in our culture, however, you have never tasted this Starbucks thing. This corporate empire has taken our brother and has devalued his importance. He is glob with sugar, carmal, whipped cream, and other unholy creatations of modern american life.
So, with a heavy hart I must stop consuming this starbucks stuff and since this is the only coffee around it seems I must stop drinking coffee until this blite is removed from our land. This western thought of consuming coffee like it is water is alien to me. I have told officer Miller my thoughts but she brushed them off. Hope you are all well,
Alright friends I am done blogging for the day! Tomorrow promises more good news, more chances to smile and more facts, quotes, and birthdays. So, do what you do well and send on a smile!
