Caribou linked to Al Qaeda

Let the record state that I prefer meeting at caribou, it has an entertainment value that panera does not. We just need to make sure we buy stuff from Einstein bagels instead. See the link below for more info:

Oh great! So now you apparently don't have to buy domestic reefer to allegedly support terrorism. All you have to do is buy coffee!

Welcome to capitalism! You don't have to be American to be a good investor.

Are we now supposed to do a background check on every company we do business with? You don't agree with the politics of the owners and you don't use their business. Something tells me we'd be shopping a LOT less!

well hell the next time your at the mall, figure out who owns that, or a resturaunt or etc. the fact is the over 65% of this countrys property is owned by a foreign company or foreign person. its just the way of free enterprise, might not like it but it is. I once herd Japan owns 50% or more of our prime reality in this coutry.

In this case, and I didn't bother to re-read my old links, The Bank of Islam owns 85%+ and the chairman, who was recently fired because they started loosing money because of his views, publicly supported multiple terrorist organizations and causes. While it is difficult to know all the interrelationships in the complex business environment that we deal with, I do think that if you find out that a business has views and activities that you oppose, you do have a right to boycott and let others know your views. Don't just go, oh well there is nothing for me to do. In this case, the boycott has already made a change. And damn straight I don't want any of my money going to terrorists!

No offence, but my $.02.

You are exactly right.

Sorry, Jim, but an American company owns the Sears Tower. MetLife. My dad is head of the team that bought the tower and manages the leasing agency for it. They also deal with other Chicago buildings, the Aeon is one of them.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Maybe Met Life bought it from a Japanese company, I vaguely remember something to that effect in the 80s, but all of the 80s are pretty vague to me

That's possible. I'll ask my dad to see who they bought it from. The purchase was finalized last October, I believe, so it was pretty recent.

Oops... I guess I should have looked at the dates... damn they were a long time ago. The Sears Tower was probably owned by a Japanese company back then.
