Which companies support Republicans?
Is there a complete list?

I'm not talking about which company has the most employees who give to republicans, I want to know if the people running the companies are republicans. Like Enron.

Anybody have one?

We have to push a boycott of all their products. The only thing these assholes understand is their pocketbooks, so that's where we need to hit them.

11. Dollar Tree fires Vet for anti-Bush comments
The Dollar Tree Store in Harrisburg, PA fired a vet on Veterans Day for talking with a customer about Bush. The company reportedly stated that they were Pro-Bush and thus, fired him. I saw this article on michaelmoore.com and responses have been compiled on the ABC27 news web site. Add Dollar Tree to the list of boycotted stores (the one in Harrisburg I mean, as I am not sure that all of them feel the same way).

13. Here is an old letter to Shell Oil... maybe modify for other companies
Dear (Chairman of the Board)

This is the tenth anniversary of my association with Shell Oil, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for your corporation's unflagging generosity.

It started, I suppose, with my credit application which was promptly denied for reasons I've long since forgotten. Then, strangely enough, a charge card from your company bearing my name followed shortly thereafter.

I began to use the new card routinely, assuming your credit department simply made an error in rejecting my application. I might add I used the card exclusively as I had no other gas and oil card. Two, three, four months passed; then one day it occurred to me that I had not received a bill. Not one. Though I kept a few receipts I calculated my charges to be well over a hundred dollars at the time. As the expiration date stamped on the card approached I was certain the computer accounting error would be revealed, a mammoth bill would be sent, and no replacement card issued.

The years have clipped by now, as I've said, ten in all, and as a regular as the seasons a colorful new plastic card arrives just in time to replace the old one; but never an invoice.

As gasoline prices have risen drastically in the last couple of years I have been forced to spread your generosity by sharing my credit privileges with my friends who have found their budgets shorted by ever rising fuel costs.

This morning I had a new set of your finest line tires installed on my truck. This afternoon for his birthday I am giving my friend Bob a tune-up and a brake job at another of your many, many stations. He, too, sends his best wishes for your continued success. After all these years I have grown confident that my name and number, eternally silent, in a minuscule electrical impulse somewhere in some computer's faulty chip, or corrupt hard drive or senile memory bank.

Or, it may simply be that I have a secret friend or philosophical admirer in your company itself -- someone who is helping me, unbeknownst to me. I wonder how many other folks are being "helped" this way and have chosen not to write you?

Unable to repay you now even if I were billed, I can only send you this note of teeming thanks.

Sincerely,
A Very Satisfied Customer

14. Can we have a "Ten Worst Offenders" List?
It's hard to remember hundreds of companies to boycott, but if we could have a list of the 10 or 20 TOP contributers to the Repugs, that would make our boycott more do-able, and more concentrated. Where can we find that info?

I believe microsoft and Pepsi gave more to Dems, though.

I believe this boycott could work well if it was a world-wide phenomena that spread to every corner of the world. Perhaps we could network with those involved with the worldwide peace protests...anyone know how?
