What do you boycott?

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, Jul 27, 2012.

  1. Spinning off the Chick-fil-A thread ...

    What products, stores or services do you boycott and why? I;m not talking avoid or dislike. I mean boycott. Places and things you will actively avoid.

    Exxon: I will NOT buy gas from an Exxon Station. To me it is the epitome of a greedy oil company. I Haven't bought gas from an Exxon station in 20 years.

    Goodyear: Fuck Goodyear Tires. They don't stand behind their products - I got a bad set of tires and they refused to replace them. I won't buy the tires and have walked away from car purchases because they refused to replace the tires.

    Casey's General Store -- Because they were prosecuted for gouging in the wake of 9/11.

    BP -- For obvious reasons.

    BP and Chick-fil-A. The BP has been ongoing. Chick-fil-A is obviously pretty recent. I'm going to try to be strong, but I'll be damned if those little Chick'n Minis aren't the most delicious bite of homophobia ever.

    Wal-Mart - Their business model appears to be built on destroying local businesses and suppliers. They may not be the only ones who do this, but they are the poster child to me.
    Nike - Leaders in the selling of a Brand over an actual product. Again, others may do this but Nike stands out for me.

    Please note - I don't tell anyone else not to shop at Wal-Mart or buy Nike products.

    I somehow missed this whole story, and I finally found an adult food that Winston will inhale.

    Now I guess I have to find a new one. :(

    Nothing that I can think of off the top of my head. Certainly not Chick Fil A. Not even if they murdered babies tableside while you ate your delicious chicken sammich.

    Hard for me to get worked up enough to boycott something.

    Nothing. I'm just too apathetic. A company has to piss me off directly for me to stop patronage.

    You lost me...
  12. I'll also add college football to my list.
