OK I already see talk of a CA boycott, and I have to say...


Don't you people understand how a boycott works?


Boycott the state?!?! The state didn't do this. A handful of right wingers with money and a movie star puppet did this.

The purpose of a boycott is to target the source of the problem, not the location. You want to boycott things... boycott their supporters.

All these guys own businesses here and there or have investments in some companies. They have supporters who own companies... these are the people to boycott.

They are the ones you should target... not the average people who are going to get screwed because of a con job.

Go after the conmen, not the marks.

1. I agree, boycotts hurt the ones that are the most in need,
it certainly will not hurt Arnie or his repuke buddies.

3. Boycott Oprah instead for trotting him out on her show
She's a horrible example to women everywhere.

9. AMEN to THAT janekat!!!!!
you all can thank oprah for her part in arnold's win. his numbers spiked after his appearance on her shameful show.


the way in which oprah uses her power is shameful and disgusting. i will NEVER hold her in the same regard again, and i hope many others feel the same.

what a waste of power and influence.

5. I agree
Talk of boycotting CA over this is utterly stupid. Instead of foolish temper tantrums, we should be putting on our thinking caps and considering our next moves. This war is far from over.
