I know a fella that boycotts Walmart, yet drives past two small town lumberyards to shop at Lowes 70 miles away. laugh Same guy refuses to buy beer at a grocery store or quick mart. Gotta buy it from a liquor store.
Capitalism and free choice is what made our country what it is.

I don't want to support any company that is anti-fur, anti-2A or anti-Christian. I know that there are many more that I didn't list (that I don't know about/don't recall at this time) and I know it is probably near impossible to boycott them all, but I would like to know of others so that I can try to spend my money in the right places.
Thanks for any input.



Why Kroger? I've always heard they pay well and noticed they hired people with disabilities.

If the jobs are so bad, why don’t folks find other jobs? Are they being forced to work there?


This is just terrible... having to be on government assistance making $175,000 for managers and $14.26 and $11 for everyone else.

Looking for a job at Walmart Opens a New Window. ? This is what the retail giant Opens a New Window. is paying its employees.

Walmart revealed its U.S. store managers are making an average of $175,000 a year while full-time hourly workers are earning about $14.26 per hour, according to the company’s 2019 Environmental, Social & Governance report released Wednesday. The company hires more than 1 million people in the U.S.

Newly hired employees, however, will start at $11 per hour or more — above the federal minimum wage rate at $7.25 per hour, according to the report. Key department managers can start earning as much as $24.70 per hour.

“We’re investing in our associates through wages along with better educational opportunities, benefits and training,” CEO Doug McMillon said in the report.

He didn't say the jobs were bad. Tee employees are told during orientation how to get welfare/assistance. Because of this they can keep their margins up and keep people shopping at their stores.

Boycotts are kind of dumb.
For example if you want to boycott because of anti fur you would have to boycott your own government because they are anti fur(anti marine mammal fur trade).

Baldhiller, Levis recently declared their corporate support of the anti-gun crowd. Google "Levis anti gun" and you will find numerous articles. They couch it as solving the gun violence problem, which I agree needs to be solved, but the only solution they are pursuing is taking away guns from law abiding citizens.

Although we have been talking about "boycotting," I prefer to think of it as voting with my wallet.

I am sorry but that is not a walmart policy. If that's what is going on it's a local thing. I have never heard of that ever happening here or any where for that matter. I know that some people have had a bad experience working for walmart but from what I have seen if you want to work do good work walmart can be a good career. I dont know maney places that a high school drop out can work there way up to a 50k a year in 4 years.

LOL you guys crack me up. You whine and moan about boycotting certain companies. I bet you every product in your house , garage , or heck even the clothes you wear can be tied to some kind of libetard owner or company. You sound just like the idiots in Washington that cry we don't like him so he is not right !!! Lets get rid of them because they don't have the same VEIWS as us. Sound familiar ring any bells. If not just read over some of these comments.

Why Kroger? I've always heard they pay well and noticed they hired people with disabilities.

Kroger, at least in my area, has pulled all firearm magazines off their shelves. They will advertise "Cosmopolitan" magazine front and center, for all the kids to see, but not a "Gun Digest". Young kids can read about sex, sex positions, how it's "cool" to be gay/transgender, etc. etc, but God forbid the read about guns....
No thanks, I'll spend my money elsewhere.


When life gets me down..... you know hunting/trapping season is closed.
