    Well then that's probably where you need to be.

    In my current work I need to sign a lot of things, typically I can't focus on writing and listing at the same time. So I'm quite sure that the people signing the petition didn't hear half of what he was saying.
    ...and still they signed the petition... 'nuff said, I'd say.

    For now, once all of the kids are out of high school that could change though.

    I've always liked Panama.

    Sure, but I'd bet that the same would've happened regardless of where in the U.S. he ran the petition. I don't think ignoring irritating people and/ or signing a pointless petition to avoid confrontation is unique to california.

    I got stationed out here a while back and decided to stick around. The money is good, landscape is nice and for the most part I'm left alone to do as I please. I don't suppose there is much more that I could ask for out of a location.

    I try to avoid Wal-Mart at all costs, don't like Applebees in general and avoid all fast food places as much as possible.

    That being said, I have stopped doing business with small businesses that support the Obama agenda, but there aren't really that many.

    It's definitely got it's share of negatives, sometimes the City of Berkeley comes to mind.

    However, I can't say the place hasn't been good to me, military and all. Oddly enough, of all of the places I've been in the US I was treated best (as a veteran) in Boston and San Jose.

    I boycotted this Food King grocery store on Collingwood Avenue in Toledo Ohio.

    Obviously I wasn't the only one.

    I'm not sure when it became a parking lot but I started boycotting it when those POS Iraqi bastards sold me expired sour milk and gave me some BS excuse about black people never buying milk instead of giving me my money back.

    Re: Do you boycott particular businesses?

    Local restaurant. Started charging me .35 cents to put mayo on my burger. Dollar foolish, penny wise. I used to eat lunch there daily.

    Hmmm.... Fifty bucks a week. Around 2500.00 dollars a year. They lose. I win. They can shove their mayo up their ass.

    That would piss me off, too.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
