    Funny....I actually missed that one and I can appreciate the jab.

    However, Disney is actually a very gay-friendly company and has been at the forefront of extending benefits to gays.

    You have to read between the lines on these boycotts. For instance, I don't call for an entire boycott of the state of Utah, including the Sundance Festival, because the mormon church does not speak for all of Utah.
    Ms. Barnes being an employee of Disneyland does not speak for the company, but individual business owners need to be hit where it hurts them the most if they want to support such hateful legislation.

    One little problem with that idea Jerry.....Prop8 takes away people's Constitutional rights, boycotts are an exercise of Constitutional rights.

    Marriage is not a constitutional right. The only thing prop 8 does is preserve traditional marriage.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Oh good a list of places I should patronize if I ever make a trip to California.

    That's right.
    No one's right has been taken away from them.

    I think this is a fruitless endeavor.
    But more power to you.

    Maybe instead, you should send them each 100lbs of brick... COD.
