    The truth offends the right wing.

    That's great if they want to boycott right leaning businesses, just don't get in my way when I support them.

    You don't really think that shooting war happens, right?

    1 Skirmish? Maybe drifting there?

    I think in those situations it was more on the Forefront where the company actually took a political stance, and on touchy areas.

    The media forced fed stories too. And backdoor advertising, I never actually saw the Gillette commercial on tv but I heard about it here.

    It's my guess that there's a lot more background protest and activity going on forcing companies to take a stance or be accused of going against it, others (big) are jumping in with both feet voluntarily.

    With all that said I very much prefer not to see a blacklist for either side, that's just bad for everyone, and childish.

    Lighten up Francis:)

    Of course they do. That's why many quit on or just take a 1 year break from the NFL, Levi's, nike, Starbucks, etc. I have. I try not to keep track.

    I neve give money to any politician.
    I wish everyone else did the same.
    No politician should spend a dime on campaigning.
    We simply stick them all up on regular tv debates for three or four months before an election and have them answer questions from the audience and let them fight it out whatever way they want, and the moderator is only there to keep the candidates from hogging too much time.

    Indeed. Look at how the trump turd polishers attacked the hurricane scientists for telling the scientific truth that Dorian was not a threat to Alabama.
    The bureaucrats at NOAA even told the scientists not to contradict trump's latest brainfart for fear of further attacks by trump and his supporters.
    That's what happens when the right tries to grasp science. They get butt hurt by the facts and then whine about it.

    We have had a shooting war before in America

    If the dems achieve one party rule in America like they have in california a civil war coukd be avoided

    But the level of lib frustration when they are not totally in power is increasing day by day

    Just wondering how they are helping the poor by making them lose their jobs. Those small businesses don't pay much. They usually can't afford it.

    I guess it's more of a desire to consolidate all labor under large corporations so it's easier for the government to confiscate them? There is no logical purpose to this.

    But you should want that. We're all pantywaists, we're not in the NRA, hell, none of us even subscribe to Guns & Ammo. You'll beat us like red headed stepchildren and then be able to restore an America controlled by rootin'tootin' gun totin MEN.

    Wattaya waiting for? We gotta get started on the Chinese, that Peril isn't getting any less Yelllow y'know.

    I have been boycotting businesses for over 60 years.What's the problem?
    They were big investors in for profit prisons.

    The Dixie chicks were investing in for profit prisons? Is that illegal or is it just a stock symbol like any other stock?

    They ATTACKED the scientists? They got them fired? They had a twitter mob threaten to kill them? They published their home addresses? How exactly did they ATTACK the scientists? I suspect you are just making stuff up out of whole cloth but I will give you a chance to provide a single shred of evidence for your assertion.

    And actually it wasn't even McCarthy. McCarthy was a Senator and went after Soviet infiltration in the federal government and as the Varona intercepts proved after they were declassified he was pretty darn correct.
    The "Hollywood black listing" was the House Unamerican Activities commission which was run by and headed by DEMOCRATS.

    noun
    1. a vociferous campaign against alleged communists in the US government and other institutions carried out under Senator Joseph McCarthy in the period 1950–54. Many of the accused were blacklisted or lost their jobs, although most did not in fact belong to the Communist Party.
