Seattle just voted to be boycotted forever.
AZ is probably happy that the liberal “leaders” of Seattle won’t be hanging around messing up the countryside.
City versus state...brother versus brother...son versus father....man, we’re back to 1850 all over again. It’s amazing to watch it unfold. Everyone sat there and kept asking how a southerner with no interest in slavery and just a plain backwoods farmer could ever care about the outcome of events in the south...and we are seeing the progress day by day.
Re: “Seattle just voted to be boycotted forever.”
Well this is no surprise; monkey see, monkey do — the usual suspects (cities) lining up against AZ. Idiots.
I’ve long viewed Seattle as a far leftist city — and have no plans to visit. Thinking about a cruise to Alaska this summer and will cross those coming and going from Seattle OFF the list. Can all those overpriced coffee stores tolerate MORE losses in revenue? Here in L.A. they are certainly hurting for business. Serves them right!
Fine. Is there anything made in Seattle that we can start a counter-boycott against? Hmmmmmm
I am planning a trip to Arizona over Christmas because of all of this. And I will not be drinking starbucks or seattle’s best coffee. It goes both way, my pals from seattle!
Seattle sucks. Even Boeing has been moving aircraft manufacturing and their headquarters from there. Hells Bells, Boeing went to Chicago!
also, these cities with huge problems (crime, budget messes, etc) are trying to deflect attention from themselves and onto Arizona...
Boycott any city or state in response to Az. We need to get a petition going around signing that we will not be visiting or spending $$ at those locations who boycott Az.
Someone with the knowhow and web presence needs to start a “boycott Seattle” website. The Seattle city government is in competition with SanFran to see who can be the most Marxist POS. I have never followed boycotts before, but this does it. I won’t buy products or services from companies based in Seattle.
Part of the communists way to convert America. Sad the way Americans are so stupid not to see what is happening to America.
I do wonder how Starbucks will take this news.
People who suffer from narcissistic personality disorder often employ splitting behavior where they divide and conquer in their interpersonal relationships. This behavior can be seen at home and at work. Unfortunately with a NPD president we have this on a much larger scale.
Just an FYI, Amazon.com is also headquartered in Seattle.
I’ve wracked my brain as to how I could support Arizona citizens and government. I E-Mailed the Governor’s office. In addition, I think I will subscribe to Arizona Highways. Is there a contact list for those cities boycotting Arizona? Of special interest would be E-Mail addresses.
Screw the Seattle city council. I want to know what the citizens of Seattle think.
Let’s hear from them, not a bunch of overpaid leftist wackos in business suits.
The L.A. city council voted to boycott Arizona, but in an L.A. Times opinion poll, fully 93% of Los Angeles residents agreed with Arizona.
That’s the problem, folks. Government is infested with petty Marxists and Socialists, from the local level, all the way up to the White House. They do not represent the clear will of the people.
