Skip to comments.Blue voters now urged to buy blue

For despondent Democrats there's a new treatment, if not a cure, for their lingering Election Day blues. Think retail therapy.
A Web site called Choose the Blue is offering shopping advice this holiday season, providing information about which companies' employees give to Democrats and which prefer Republicans.

Hey, this will help me choose red stores, awesome :)
But I thought commiecrats didn't believe in Christmas anyway!
"Having a Blue Christmas.."
Let the healing continue...
Log on to the New York Times, Washington Post, Opinion Journal, Kansas City Star, Chicago Tribune and the Baltimore Sun using my email and pass word if it's required. It is a junk email account and I don't care how much they spam it:

Are votes at a discount price, now that the election is over? I always enjoy a bargain.
Great idea. The blue-staters should start buying their food and power (including electricity, gas, oil, etc.) solely from the blue counties. Call us when the hunger, dark and cold gets unbearable.
Don't do that!
Webbots scour these pages for addresses.
Use this instead:
If someone can't figure out waht you're saying, they don't need your addy!
Absoluely... and, remember: there are more of us than there are of THEM! :)
This is just too easy for a "turn-about."
That is what they think of when Kerry tells them to help "unite the country"
OK,but why should I care?
Not a smart move by the Dems. Once the majority (reds) find out who is supporting what, the left will be losing money in their effort to supplant the right.
Chicago Tribune articles are to be excerpted per the WP/LAT agreement.
Since Hollywood overwhelmingly supports Rats, I would advise most freepers to boycott hollywood completely. I just discovered that much of Hollywoods profits are a result of 12-17 year old boys going again and again to see the same movies. If you have a boy that age, get him involved in athletics. Don't drop him off at the mall and let him spend his money (your money) on these Leftwing films.
Assuming . . assuming the numbers are right, it's nice to see. I knew Amazon was Dem from their handling of The Passion and Unfit for Command. But they're close to 50/50. So that was surprizing. I didn't realize Costco was so firmly Dem. That's really disappointing. I'm glad to see Home Depot and Wal-mart/Sams-Club are solid GOP. I tend to shop there. Circuit City, also solid GOP. I don't shop there. But I'd go there in a second rather than Best Buy. Barcaly and Littman. I wonder about Cartier, which has a store nearby? Staples and Target, too. I hate Target's anti-SA policy. Many do. But I do hit Staples on occasion. To be fair, it's cheaper to buy on the www, than Staples.
But this could be useful. All the places I normally go, except Costco, turn out to be solid GOP. That's great! I feel good.
Heinz Co gave 83% to the REPUBLICANS -- and 50% of that was Tere'sa's attitude.
I had a feeling she was trying the throw the election to Bush.
I don't want to sign up can someone give me a list of red stores to shop at and blue stores to avoid.
Perhaps UN Blue?????
Nevermind. Thanks Graybeard.
Kind of sucks, looks like most of the quality clothing companys and my favorite skin care products, particularly "Origins" are all blue donors. On the store side....very surprisng that Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie were republican donors.
Just go to choosetheblue.com, and look up whatever table you're interested in....there is no registration and the lists are far too long.
didnt see a link posted yet, good site :)
"Boycott Red Zones -- Starve!"
There are 1102 different categories listed on this site.
Of them, 730 are "red" contributors and 372 are "blue."
Of the 372 "blue" contributors, about 15% are from entertainment industries.
I'd hate to live in a world where only the "blue companies" provided my goods and services. I'd be hungry, thirsty, cold, stuck in the dark, carless and homeless, I wouldn't be able to order concert tickets online, and I wouldn't be pulling for the most talented rookie quarterback this year.
A blue world is depressing.
How many of the blue grocery stores get their products from red states or red areas? I really think they should boycott EVERYTHING red, even if you can find it in a blue store. Just think how great their lives would be? LOL
Along with food only grown in blue counties.
WalMart gift cards (80% pubbie) instead of OldNavy (38% pubbie) I traditionally have been getting.
Thanks for the heads up!
Great....now I know which blue stores to avoid. Typical of the democrats to try something and blow it (no pun intended).
Couldn't they figure out that red voters would use this list to punish blue donating companies? There are a whole lot more red voters and red areas than blue....what a bunch of idiots.
Well, I was starting to think that Japan had finally paid it's penance for WW II and I might buy a Toyota 4 door truck then I find that Toyota is a blue company. Too bad.
The following is a text of a letter I emailed the reporter, Jennifer Skalka, this morning:
1) Extreme Lib starts "blue" website calling for, in essence, a boycott.
2) Sympathetic reporter hears of website.
3) Sympathetic reporter gives extreme Lib cause tens of thousands of dollars worth of free publicity in front page article, which free publicity is what these boycotts are all about.
4) Said reporter does not talk to a "red" voter in the article.
5) Said reporter wonders in her article if Republicans are going to do the same kind of boycotting. If said reporter was at all wired in to what Republicans are saying, if said reporter talked to Bush voters, reporter would know Republicans are already calling for the same thing. Their calls just aren't being given free publicity like the Duvalls are.
This kind of reporting is what readers have come to expect from what some call, "The Libune".
Very truly yours,
She won't grasp the concept.
This is not holiday shopping advice, its nothing but bitter and resentful Dems politicizing the Christmas season. Shameful.
A GREAT way to make sure YOUR Christmas dollars are going to the RIGHT companies, and NOT the LEFT ('Rat-donating) ones!
