Bravo! Exactly what I have been saying. "The "Stoli" that has poured $$$Millions$$$ into our community is NOT owned by Putin OR Russia. Just because the wheat and water are from a very small region (that amounts to .0009% income), don't take it out on those who have wholeheartedly supported, and continue to support us. Even Russian Activists urge caution here. It could actually hurt them more. The BEST thing we can do is put pressure on governments to intervene, sign petitions and boycott the GAMES of 2014 and ANY sponsor of the GAMES of 2014.
Punishing a company that employs many good people, and that is so supportive of our community is not only near-sighted and wrong, but it opens the door for other companies, that are or could be investing $$$$$ into our causes, to pull out when they see how quickly we turn on them, or make them think twice about ever starting!
Putin has GOT to be loving how divided he has made our own communities here in America. Don't give the fracking #DroneMagnet the satisfaction."
Although I am also opposed to Formulaic Retail, Chipotle is the exception. The fact that they buy local, cruelty free, sustainable food and are the first major chain to oppose Monsanto and go completely non-GMO should have earned the backing of our community.
Sad day for San Francisco!
