    Some morons on the right are saying fire anyone who "looks" like they voted Obama (hmmm, please, will they describe how to pick out...based on 'looks', they do that?).

    Well, let me suggest that we ONLY spend our money at places that did NOT endorse or support Romney. For example......I'll only be buying groceries at Whole Foods. In fact, I've been doing that for a while now.

    Of course, it'll be tough, since many major businesses are owned by rich folks, and most rich folks endorsed Romney.

    But....hell, if the right wing wants to keep alienating people, fuck it, lets do it.

    That's really a very good idea. The GOP's entire problem is that they send people to Congress to be obstructionist while the people compromise on a daily basis. I stopped compromising on a personal level years go. It isn't enough to just stop supporting that which you clearly don't support. The reasons must be communicated. Real conservatives don't eat Ben and Jerry's.

    Yep. Talk with your actions. Im not saying only shop where the owner voted Obama. Im saying avoid anywhere that was purely Romney, and supports....how did "SniperFire" put it..."firing anyone who LOOKS like they voted for Obama" (translate: Fire all the blacks, mexicans and gays).

    So....the internet is powerful. Start spreading word of businesses who did or didn't buy into the far right ideal, and SniperFire's idea of firing anyone who "looks" like an Obama voter.

    Whole Foods for all my groceries.

    And...my truck is running fine, but, it's old. 1999 with 190,000 miles. I was waiting for New Years to buy. It'll be a GM vehicle.

    Any others you guys suggest? Support the places that support and back our COUNTRY....."OUR" country, all of us....not a fanatical political ideology that fires people for how they "look" like they voted.

    What is......letting my dollar speak? Thats American.

    Whats petty and dumb is what your fellow right winger SNiperFire says to do...and that he/she already did...........fire anyone who "looks" like they voted Obama. Firing someone based off "looks".......which, btw, opens them up to a lawsuit from Equal Opp Employment, as firing someone off their "looks" will limit them to firing off race or gender alone.

    As do I, and I'll still eat there. Because Chic Fil A isn't a radical right wing business like the one's Im speaking of. I doubt Chic Fil A will fire all it's black, hispanic or gay employees (As SniperFire suggests business should do).

    In fact, Chic Fil A goes against a lot of the radical right's ideas:

    - They pay their employees a bit more than necessary. Yep. Theirs are paid more than...say...the fry cook or cashier at Burger King. They take care of their people.

    - They remain closed on Sundays, despite losing out on profit. WHy? Principles, and letting their employees have that day off (Employees first, profit second). NOT a concept of the radical right wing who worships the mighty profit over employees.

    - They routinely, very frequently, donate money to local police and fire departments, and bring food to them on holidays. Chic Fil A rarely advertises this, but as a former cop and still being friends with many, let me tell you, Chic Fil A supports local cops and firemen as much as they do the military. Another concept that is foreign to the radical right who sees cops, firemen and teachers as nothing more than "government worker" parasites.


    So...yes, I'll still enjoy those delicious chicken sandwiches. Except on Sundays.......when that business...once again...puts people over profits.

    Hmmm. Funny. Two businesses...Whole Foods and Chic Fil A...puts people over profits...and seem to be f**king thriving in this bad economy....while others who do the opposite seem to struggle. Could it be that their employees are happier, thus offering a better customer service experience, and in the end making customers feel better about spending their even harder earned dollars there?

    Its not your dollar that's speaking bucs its your irrational anger that I'm hearing.

    No one cares where you or I spend their money. But people on here both members and guests see how YOU AND I represent our country and you are an embarrassment.
