Democratic officials called for a boycott of certain companies supporting an organization pushing for voter ID laws today among them Walmart and Coca-Cola of which at least one has responded. Five hours after the boycott rallying call came, Coca-Cola issued a statement that it would withdraw support of that organization, the American Legislative Exchange Council, but not specifically because of the voter ID law support: Coca-Cola, the statement read, did not customarily support political efforts that had nothing to do with the corporation itself, and the news that ALEC had now developed an agenda independent of anything related to Coca-Cola disqualified it from the corporations support.
According to the Washington Examiner, the call to boycott came from Democratic officials, including Rep. James Clyburn, who told the paper that Democrats had staffed up to fight the laws.

I actually go to the 99 cent store and buy their generic pop which is 3 liters for a dollar.
Coke is just being threatened and like any business you back off for a bit until the dust settles. But I would rather drink Coke than Pepsi whose CEO is an Obama-ass kissing b(tch and bragged the Pepsi logo was re-made from the obama election logo.

Coke is cutting off its nose to spite its face. Wait till the Obamunists come with their hollow-head bullets and a gov’t appointed CEO
I need to re-read this tomorrow.
Only his nose knows!
“What is corporatism? In a (somewhat inaccurate) phrase, socialism for the bourgeois. It has the outward form of capitalism in that it preserves private ownership and private management, but with a crucial difference: as under socialism, government guarantees the flow of material goods, which under true capitalism it does not.”
I would add that Corporatism destroys Traditional Values, destroys Western Culture, enforces Political Correctness and hates Christians.
Because the stomach has no acid in it at all....
REally. PO your paying customer base to satisfy one that doesn’t.
I can’t believe how far the price of soda has fallen (while everything else is going up); I think these companies are going to struggle as people start avoiding even the diet brands (which are still very unhealthy). I’m a soda addict, and I see 2 litre bottles selling for less than the 20 oz. bottles in delis (for the main brands).
Great Party/Holiday Punch drink; 1/2 liter bottle of Vernors, 1/2 bottle of Welches Cranberry Juice, 4 to 6 scoops of orange sherbert and serve.
Yep. Libturds regard Coca-Cola as EEEEEVIL.
Hey, Sweet Tea is better for me anyway. I hear Rush Limbaugh is in the Tea business.
