A wise company concentrates on producing quality products that please their customer base and stay the hell out of looney leftist politics and avoid promoting homosexuals.

How long before the state-run media tries to make it sound like the TEA party is engaged in a criminal conspiracy in this, when the left tries it all the time, most recently with respect to Target.

The left’s attempts usually come to nothing. I wonder if the same will be said when the TEA party shows it’s influence?

People who pay taxes should not deal with Leftist companies. Like GE and GM.

The results of the survey led the pollster to conclude that Tea Partiers could “realistically” lead a boycott of such companies.

Any tea party supporters driving General Motors vehicles?

Obamaism is a first-step to full-blown crony-capitalism; I don’t know if the proposed strategy is the best way to counter it, but it’s a step in the right direction, and I’m all for it.

And if the Tea Party folks do propose a boycott of GE, I hope they’ll inform us of all the products associated with GE that don’t necessarily fly the “GE” logo.

I was boycotting GE and GM long before the Tea Party became a widespread movement. The media and the Left will never get it. Free minded people are just that, we don’t require a label or a banner to ‘organize’ under in order to stick to our minds and beliefs. I voted with my wallet on these and similar companies for quite some time. Same with AARP, and others.

We have already been boycotting GE—for several years now. But IIRC, Wal-Mart supported RATcare. Boycotting it would be difficult, but I suppose doable.

You know, the next time we Tea Partiers have a big rally in Washington DC, instead of the Capitol Mall how about marching on the famous lobbyists located on K Street in DC?

My goodness, the premise is correct!!! I just learned about J&J and now will avoid their products the best that I can.

Pfizer was also a hard lobbier for passing Obamacare. Here is a list of their products. If you are taking one, consider stopping it and changing prescriptions.

Likewise, a list of Johnson & Johnson consumer products:

Most products are replaceable with generics/store brands.

The ONLY way the agenda dries up is when we conservatives STOP funding it.

Another important question to ask is which major US
companies are the worst exporters of US manufacturing
jobs to China, the profits of which contribute greatly
to the modernization of the Chinese Military.

Oh by the way.... That’s the same military/government
that’s currently telling us to keep our Navy out of
the Yellow Sea. The Yellow Sea is also the Korean
“West Sea”, where we are sending a carrier to conduct
drills with the South Koreans.

Nice.... When the Chinese fire across the Bow of one of
our Navy ships these US manufacturers will apologize for
our transgression and open another China factory. I’m
sure they are pressuring Obama right now to not make
the Chinese mad.

Every time I see anything made by GE I am reminded of the glenn Beck Jingle:

“G.E... We bring ev-il to liiiife.”

interesting.

If your company buys a GM Volt fleet it will cost you customers.
