    Personally, I would agree. And the thing that sparked all of this was the personal opinion of a CEO, not a Corporate position. But a bunch of lobyists turned around and forced it into something that was never intended, and it largely backfired. And after what happened in Washington DC the other day, I have to wonder at the motivations at people who take protests like that so far.

    I may not have stated my point well. I think anyone can spend their money anyway the want and they can give it to whomever they want. It ain't my money.

    There's your proof.
