A List of Businesses to Avoid

In ttag an article was just published, from ccrkba, of businesses which fund antigun actions.

https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/kn...sinesses-ceos/

And for the list: https://www.ccrkba.org/antigunbusinesses

One way of fighting the Communist takeover is by denying their enablers money.

Maybe the forum administrators could make it a subforum/sticky, what ever you want to call it. And people could add posts to it as they become relevant.

40+ years ago I only wore Levi Strauss jeans until I read an article in Guns and Ammo that had them on a list of anti gun companies. It would be impossible to boycott every company that disagreed with us but we can pick a few and stick with it. I have not bought anything by levi strauss in close to 40 years and I taught my kids to buy from other companies also. I also banned Sara Lee products at the same time.

I know that I did not hurt their bottom line by not buying their products but it has been a point of pride to me not to have given them one thin dime in almost 40 years.

I stopped using Costco 7-8 years ago. Their origin was to accommodate business owners. Well most small businesses use AMEX. They stopped taking AMEX and came out with their own ViSA card, as if they weren’t making enough money. I know I didn’t lower their bottom line either but did spend $ 2-5k/year there. I also knew their politics was liberal based.
So BJ’s or some other vendor gets my business. I also stopped using Amazon because of some nonsense that went on with them and my credit card. Although Amazon probably owns 80+% of the cloud service we all pay for. Why isn’t Facebook, etc on there?

Iím sure thereís a ton more to add to the list. REI is not there, yet. They followed Dicks tirade and said they will no longer stock any items from manufacturers that have anything to do with guns. Not a tent or even rain gear made by Remington was allowed in the store. None of the Browning clothing, knives or bags. You must have to wear a pink pu$$y hat to work there!

Given the length of the list and the wide range of goods and services, I don't think I can completely avoid dealing with all the offending companies. I reviewed the list and found a dozen or so corporations with which my dealings are purely voluntary. I will avoid them and feel better about it.

Alphabet Inc is a big one. Without intervention from Congress, there's no chance they will ever be taken down a peg. And with how much they lobby, Congress will never get involved.

Congress used to break up monopolies, now they just take their payoffs.

That's quite the list. There's some real heavyweights on there

I'm wondering if a buy from and neutral list would be shorter.

I dumped Levis years ago for the same reason others did. I even worked there years many years before that. I met my first wife working there. That should be reason enough to boycott them.

Like others, it's going to be impossible to avoid all on the list, but will check it to avoid the ones I can.

What a shame and an embarrassment to the business world that the list is so long.

Few people can realistically avoid 100% of these businesses.

But all of us here should minimize our transactions with those on the list we might be unable to avoid entirely.

Obviously, Plan A is total avoidance.

Was shocked to see Dick's Sporting Goods on the list, I mean...

"Sarcasm OFF"...

Iím surprised Remington isnít on the list.
After all, it seems like they go out of their way to ruin themselves!
