33. However noble or effective boycotts may be they still run the risk of hurting the little person,
the simple employee who is just trying to make ends meet, feed the kids, pay the mortgage. What do we say to them? "We have a noble cause and some innocent people need to get hurt in a noble cause". It's kind of like how Republicans want to punish those lazy welfare mothers, not caring that there are a lot of innocent children who would be hurt too. The Law of Unintended Consequences.

Sorry, I cannot recommend this thread in an attempt to get some RW blowhard off the air. I am not afraid of free speech not matter how much I may disagree with it or find it disgusting. In Rush's case I simply do not listen to him.
