    Tell me about it.  I'm entertaining a boycott.  I'm a big boycotter, but most of them have been relatively painless.  Jimmy John's.  Hobby Lobby.  Chick Fil-A (which I've never been to, outside of the day they were having a protest where you kissed someone of the same gender on their property, and I went there with the intention of kissing a stranger but the police prevented the protest).  Red States.  I mean...typically a boycott means you don't give them your money, and I haven't been to a Cubs game in probably 6 or 7 years...so perhaps I could still watch/listen, as long as I don't give them my money.

    I need to add Jimmy John's to my boycott list.  That guy is the lowest of the low, running around murdering trophy animals.  He got his start down in Champaign in the 80s and early 90's and he was known around town as being a serial assaulter and eventually served trial for date rape and was acquitted.  He claimed consent.  She claimed no consent.  Not enough proof, I guess.  Probably hard to prove.

    If boycotts make you feel good, then fine. I refuse. All they do is motivate the other side, no matter what that side may be.

    Motivates them to do what?  other than here, I don't really publicize any boycott.  I just refuse to give my $$ to a few businesses that I've carefully selected.  My wife and I are on the same page about where we don't shop, and that's about it.

    How did the national boycott of Chick-fil-A work out? Throngs came out in support of them. I'm sure they don't miss the $5.00 you would have spent.

    It's Arkansas. No one would notice if anyone boycotted it. And if you've never been to a Chick-fil-A, you probably never noticed that they probably hire more homosexuals than any other place other than gay bars.

    Exactly.  It's for me.

    Well, first of all, when I like a food joint they get a hell of a lot more than $5 from me.  From the sounds of it, C-F-A is really good.  For me it's not about thinking I'll put them out of business.  Surely I will NOT put them out of business by avoiding them.  It's more of a personal belief that I'm doing something against my own morality and ethics if I give them my money.  I can't bring myself to do it.  Maybe we'll be on vacation someday and CFA will be my one and only option, or it'll be that or Jimmy John's, leaving us to choose or drive another 45 mins.  But until then I'm just doing what seems to be the right thing to do in my weird world.

    Exactly my thinking.  I'm not telling people on Facebook not to go to C-F-A or Hobby Lobby.  It's just a personal/family thing that we do.  We're not trying to convince others to follow suit.

    I recall you saying you refuse/avoid watching the annual awards shows on TV (Emmy/Grammy/Grampy/Oscars) for reasons similar to why we avoid CFA or Hobby Lobby.  You have issues with some of the things they do or say on those shows.  Your boycott doesn't hurt their ratings, but since they don't know about it, it doesn't empower them either.

    I don't watch them because I'm not interested. Saying that I'm boycotting them is like saying I'm boycotting Budweiser...or Playgirl Magazine.


    As I said, if boycotts make you feel good, fine.

    Wouldn't say they make me feel "good" so much as feel like I'm doing my duty, or doing what I'm supposed to do, such as helping a blind person cross the street, or holding a door open for an old lady.

    My wife boycotts Target. I tell her the same thing. Every year, I get a list of things from the NEA that I'm supposed to boycott. I ignore them. I'm pro-life. I see lists of places that support Planned Parenthood that I'm supposed to boycott. I ignore them too.

    Funny but I've been told to boycott Target, too.  Can't even recall why.  

    So many places support PP that you'd have few places left to visit if you boycotted all of them.

    Add Papa John's pizza to your boycott list - not sure if it's just a coincidence that he has hit the skids since his anti-worker, anti-healthcare voice came out, or if enough people are boycotting him. Sales for Papa Johns are way down ...of course, could be the pizza is just shit too

    Another "boycott" that just happens. Of course you don't live here anymore, but who in their right mind over the age of 13 who lives within 20 miles of Chicago would eat Papa John's? Or Domino's? Or Little Queazers?

    Yeah, no shit.  Who would ever eat Papa John's?  Drawing back on your earlier message, Kevin....I think I'd be more likely to buy Playgirl magazine than order or eat Papa John's.  I guess I'm saying dick is more appetizing than that shit!

    The CEO of Target donated to some LGBTQ candidates in Minnesota.  The right is boycotting them because they support proper access to restrooms from trans folks.  I simply don't go to Target because I think it's overrated.  I'm not a fan.

    I would never eat Papa John's...especially since the local one employed a registered sex offender as their delivery guy.  As you note, who eats that awful pizza?  Kids.  So let's go ahead and hire a child predator to deliver your pizza.

    Their sales are down, in part, because of how CEO came out against the NFL players kneeling.  After it impacted his bottom line, he tried to backpedal.  He's scum.

    No, don't live in Chicago anymore, but would never eat Papa Johns nor pizza hut pizza. They do have locally owned, small pizza places are that okay around here.
