Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore has called for an economic boycott of the state of Georgia to protest Wednesday's execution of Troy Davis, the Savannah man convicted of murdering an off-duty police officer in 1989.

"I encourage everyone I know to never travel to Georgia, never buy anything made in Georgia, to never do business in Georgia," Moore wrote on his website in a blog item posted a few hours after Davis' death.

Gee, just boycott an entire state. I’m sure that his words will influence hundreds if not hundreds to boycott.

Has Moore ever been to Georgia? I mean the Real Georgia. Not Atlanta.

He'd be amazed at the number of black people making a living in that state.

I wonder is a “royalty” all Moore gets when one of his wacky books sells? Does he have stock in the publisher too? This guy is so weasel worded.

This might just encourage other states to execute more killers.

We have the death penalty in Florida too - when we put a killer to death will Mooore do us the honor of asking his liberal friends to stay away?

I had my labor day Dragoncon weekend trip to GA. It was fun.

Photos are here of assorted stuff:

I am glad I could contribute to the GA economy.

There is also a little gas station outside Buckhead on I20 that makes some fairly good fast fried stuff.

I thought his fat arse, nondescript, POS went to a food addiction clinic a while back ... if so, it didn’t take. Still a fat arse, fat mouth POS, that few, if any, listen to. IMHO

Why is he not calling for a boycott of Texas for the execution of Lawrence Russell Brewer? Why was there no protest of his execution? Why was there no coverage of this? Brewer deserved execution... but we on the right are consistent, while the left is selective in their condemnation for reasons that are apparent when you look a little deeper.

"Peaches?"

Nope. Not even among top 5.

1 Cotton
2 Peanuts
3 Garden/Nursery Plants
4 Onions
5 Tobacco

Boycott Georgia for the death penalty, boycott Arizona for the immigration law, boycott Alaska because of Palin, etc. etc. etc.

Pretty soon these leftists will be confined to their bath houses in Frisco unable to venture out anywhere else. Not a bad result for us.
