Free tall coffee offered at all area Starbucks on the Fourth of July

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz decided to get patriotic this past week, announcing in Sunday newspaper ads that he wants Americans to get together and be more civil.

In the ad, titled “How Can America Win this Election,” Schultz said it's time for people to sit down and be engaged in making this country strong again.

He's doing his part, offering a free tall coffee in all corporate Starbucks locations across the country. (Probably doesn't apply in the franchise stores inside malls or airports.)

Schultz said that “there is something wrong” with America and “the deficits this country must reconcile are much more than financial, and our inability to solve our own problems is sapping our national spirit.

“In 2012 America needs to win the election more than either party does. It is time now to join together as Americans. It is time, whatever our differences, for us to strive and succeed as one nation-indivisible,” Schultz wrote in the ad that said coffee will be free on July 4, “to spark the conversation in our stores.”
