Last edited Thu Jan 17, 2013, 12:24 PM - Edit history (5)

I refuse to spend any of my money with any of the following companies due to their support of the radical right agenda. I have recently added Whole Foods, but perhaps there are others that I am unaware of and someone could point them out for me. Although, I am just one consume (actually 4 if you count my family), these companies will not receive a penny from me in order to fund their hate machines:

Chik-Fil-A

Carl Jr's

White Castle-the Ohio-based burger chain, gave $25,000 to the Boehner-linked Congressional Leadership Fund Super PAC.

Cracker Barrel
Waffle House-he 24-hour breakfast food restaurant, gave Karl Rove’s group American Crossroads $100,000 from its corporate fund

Papa Johns-Papa has been a basher of Obama and the Affordable Care Act

Domino's-Owner is one of the head nuts for the extreme right wing

Whole Foods

Blue Bell Ice Cream-the ice cream manufacturer, gave $40,000 to the Boehner-linked Congressional Leadership Fund Super PAC

Georgia Pacific (Funny story, this company called me last week and said they had been referred to me through a headhunter and wanted to talk to me about either a full-time job or a consulting job. At this point, I interrupted the guy and said "not interested" and he said "I didnt even tell you about the position, salary or location", so I restated "not interested, I would never work for the enemy", a long pause then ensued. When the gent finally replied he stated "what do you mean enemy", so I said "I would never work for the Koch Brothers and the world would be a better place if they were dead" and I hung up.

Olive Garden
