Skip to comments.People to counter Monday's boycott by shopping and speaking up
Posted on 04/30/2006 6:50:14 AM PDT by Ladycalif
MISSION VIEJO - Sandra Sweet was 8 the last time she did anything political in public. She thinks.
She has this vague memory of being a little girl when her father took her to a political rally in Washington, D.C., that involved the Vietnam War and something about "a march for victory."
So it's surprising that Sweet, 45, is organizing a "pro-American" rally in Santa Ana on Monday to counter what some are calling "the Great American Boycott." Armed with her e-mail address book and a sense of alarm Sweet is taking the first political action of her adult life.

Why do they think that giving the finger to the country that has (up to now) accepted them will help their cause?
The more they "flex their numbers", the more America realizes our problem and its associated costs.
The end is nigh for illegals in such unbounded numbers. JMHO
"The antiboycott laws, however, apply to all boycotts imposed by foreign countries that are unsanctioned by the United States"
"It is currently a federal criminal offense under U.S. "antiboycott laws" for any U.S. person to participate in another nation's boycotts or embargoes of third countries."
So gee what would the illegal aliens fall under U.S. person or foreign national, and what about the nmexicans who are BOYCOTTING in support of all the illegal alien foreign nationals???
"embargoes of 3rd countries"? Most of the products are made in 3rd countries.
But, how about this idea? The only real thing those crooks in Washington understand is MONEY! Am I right? So on Monday every working legal American should change the number of their dependents to 99 their W2 form. This would mean that almost no money would be taken out of our checks for Federal taxes and thus the flow of cash to the Federal Government would STOP! This is not illegal. Just put the money that would have gone to the Fed's in the bank and use it to pay your taxes next April 07! There would be a small additional fine but if enough people participate that might even be eliminated.
I predict that it would not take very long for change to happen with our "fearless" lawmakers!
I'll counter by working a full 8 hours like every work day, buying my morning coffee and paper at a local eatery. May even do something extremely rare eat breakfast there instead of having one of those Fat-Pills when I get to work.
Won't work they would just raise the debt ceiling to a gazillin brazzion dollars and no sense
The 11,000,000 illegals DON'T vote. The voters hold the election of politicians, who make, enforce and judicate the laws.
Ramming unpatriotism down our throats does these pro-illegal immigrants NO good.
The Star Spangled Banner in SPANISH?! Absolutely, totally, 100% insulting, demeaning and unpatriotic.
Didn't a BRIT start this?
Don't believe everything you hear about Texas:')
Breakfast at Wendy's
Get new Wi-Fi gear at Best Buy
Lunch at Ruby Tuesday
Craft supplies at Michael's
Dinner at Outback Steakhouse
Wonder if On-line purchases count?
And I hope this prevents them from driving on our roads and using state roads....
Signed on yesterday just to show us you know how to use CAPS?
I believe I will greet everybody at the airport (as I take a $1K airline flight), the rental car agency (as I begin a month's rental), the hotel, the restaurants with a big "Happy Bite the Hand that Feeds You Day". Will also probably do some shopping.
You do have a great gov!
Welcome to FR.
I believe the other poster meant for their comments to be taken in a friendly manner.
You can stop shouting. (In other words, turn off your caps lock.)
I know how you feel. Around here (Southern California) the illegals are so rude, pushy and belligerent, I'm afraid to go a lot of places, too.
Right - and your employer would then be obliged to report such a claim to the IRS and you are in a whole heap of trouble.
I applaud Ms. Sweet for her effort and hope that she is joined by many, many counter protesters across the country. I support those who make the effort to counter the boycott by making many purchases on May 1. Mid week I too was concentrating my efforts on coming up with a plan to counter this 'boycott' even if in just some small way. My focus has changed, drastically.
I am an avid supporter of President Bush. A huge reason I voted for him was because I trusted his ability to fight the war on terror and to protect this country from terrorism and I have supported ALL of his decisions in that regard, incuding Dubai, but have been frustrated with the inaction on the borders. I have felt that the inaction was due to both parties' appeasement of Latino voters
In ONE day, millions and millions of illegal alien invaders and their supporters have ANNOUNCED to President Bush and our leadership in D.C., that they WILL illegally take over major cities and shut down the entire country. They have made their demands clear and have stated that their objective is to intimidate our government into meeting their demands, which include immediate and full legalization, taking back their stolen land and open, unchecked borders.
'Boycott?" Their 'boycott' is a dangerously massive, threatening, uncontrollable assembly of foreign invaders, who's intentions are meant to be a show of force, all across the country, against our government, are an 'in your face' dare to any oppposition, and are, imo, without a doubt, a threat to national security. It is a threat that our government has created, done nothing to prevent, and is doing nothing to stop.
"The 11,000,000 illegals DON'T vote."
...unless they live in Democrat-controlled precincts in major cities like Philadelphia, St. Louis, Madison WI, or Miami. If they do, they vote 100% Democrat.
Sonny Perdue:"Just signed a bill denying state benefits to illegals."A governor with guts.If my governor(Jeb)did the same,i'd probably go into vapor lock.
Welcome to Free Republic, BTW.
I'm taking a vacation day either Wednesday or Thursday. Monday and Tuesday I must do work brainless cabrones don't have the first clue about.
....same here in the South Bay. You can't even smile or talk to their kids without them grabing them and pulling them away.
My anecdote:Within the last year or so several hispanic families have moved into my neighborhood.My next door neighbors moved in a year or so ago.They won't say hello when i'm outside.I wave when i go by in my car.They don't wave back,and avoid any eye contact.Very strange and rude!Not very neighborly imo:(
What does that have to do with the issue at hand in this thread? A lot of Republican politicians support amnesty/guest worker legislation, so, related to the coming Monday events, your idea is a non sequitur.
It's a holdover from Moorish influence in Spain (I think--would be interested to hear if I'm wrong). One indication that it has Islamic tradition written on it is the wearing of bits of blue jewelry. In Islamic tradition, the color blue wards off the evil eye. That's why the burqua in Afghanistan was always blue, because women are so evil they need a charm against the devil.
Anyway, it's a very primitive thing. They probably also put eggs under their beds to absorb sickness. At least they have to pay their curanderos with cash, and it keeps them out of the ER.
Wish there were a few more days to get organized. Too bad Rush is so busy with personal troubles.
The talk like that at DU
Point is ... that is exactly what needs to be done to those who honor Pinko de Mayo tomorrow. Don't patronize those who employee illegals.
Yes, it is a bad move. Sympathy won't be forthcoming. Monday is my normal shopping day and it won't be necessary to change the routine. Many of the illegals are employed in the canneries for some reason; it would be a surprise if any one of them took Monday off to stage the protest.
My post was a suggestion to counter the "boycott" by "shopping" at the named places -- as detailed by the link I included.
I was just trying to help you out. If posting etiquette is unimportant to you, shout away.
I plan to buy a new Lawn Mower, and stock up on some clothing....Its kinda fun thinking of ways to spend $$ to counter the Illegals.
The title is specific to the illegals' boycott tomorrow, and your shopping suggestion relates to companies that support Republicans. What do you hope to accomplish by such an unrelated action? I just don't get it.
If you were suggesting we buy from companies that refuse to employ illegal aliens, I cound see the relationship.
I think the fine for insufficient withholding is $500. That's not so small for some people.
"The 11,000,000 illegals DON'T vote."
Not true at all. That's what our politicians want us to think, but it's not so.
Illegals can and do vote, and there is no way to stop them apparently, if they want to.
"There is no way of checking," said Maryland State Board of Elections Administrator Linda H. Lamone.
"We have no way of doing that. We have no access to any information about who is in the United States legally or otherwise."
