22. I'd still likely be unaffected. I don't do a lot of "consumer" crap.
I go to a local supermarket that I've never heard advertised anywhere; I rarely buy stuff (I have everything I need, save food and stuff like buttwipe--the stuff on sale is fine), and if I do, I usually get it online and have it delivered, and about the only big purchase we'll be making in the months ahead is a dryer, because ours has just about crapped out after a quarter century plus of substantial use. We will buy the cheapest, sturdiest one, that we will inspect in several stores without buying, and very possibly buy from a military exchange, without being influenced by ads.

I just can't be bothered with that boycott stuff. I certainly am not going to boycott a product that dares to advertise on a show where someone is giving their opinion--even if their opinion is halfassed, idiotic and stupid. After all, this is a nation that touts our tolerance of Free Speech--even if the speech is moronic, uninformed and hateful.
