Your boycott list

Your boycott list - 05/14/19 02:39 PM

I'm just wondering what companies are on everyone's boycott list. Mine are-
Dicks "sporting goods"
Target
Gander Outdoors
Yeti
Kroger
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.

What's your peeve with New Glarus Brewing?

Re: Your boycott list - 05/14/19 02:59 PM

Owner (at least one) is very liberal leaning. Plenty of other good beers to drink that at least don't decide to mix politics with business.

Don't forget Levis.

As far as what Walmart has done, that's capitalist competition and I don't have a problem with it. I do still appreciate the local small business owners and buy from them, but I have no reason to boycott Walmart for being successful and doing it within the rules of our society.

My preference is that business owners focus on conducting business and stay out of politics that has nothing to do with their business.

I am not a fan of Walmart, But they did not out compete the small stores. When towns grew and many grew fast, the local hardware, grocery, shoe store etc. did not and many could not because of the constraints of down town, no parking etc. If the local grocery would have moved to the edge of town and grew with the town, there would have been no room for walmarts etc.

Re: Your boycott list - 05/14/19 04:17 PM

Target because of their foolish, dangerous rest room policies and because Target is the only major store who will not allow Salvation Bell ringers at Christmas time.

I DO support Chick-Fil-A because of their patriotism and Christian attitude toward the poor in my area.

Re: Your boycott list - 05/14/19 04:18 PM

Wal-mart also "works" with their suppliers to secure a lower price point (often to the detriment of the consumer as far as quality goes). Yes, they are a very successful example of capitalism, good and bad. Low price = low quality. Low price = low profit margin. Low profit margin requires low manufacturing costs. Jobs go to developing countries. But the consumer's desire/demand for lower prices drives this. We can be our own worst enemy some times. I'll pay more for local/better quality.

I shop small and local as much as I possibly can. Never been to Costco, Meijer, haven't set foot in Wal-mart in 10 plus years. Hate shopping Home Depot, but the local lumberyard doesn't stock much of any pressure treated lumber and I can't afford cedar.

I don't disagree at all with the scenario described. Many local businesses failed to see the future and move to meet the challenge it presented. That created an opening for the Walmarts, Home Depots, Lowes, etc. Also, improved transportation via the highway system and the move to a more global economy changed both how people shopped and the competition for shoppers dollars in a way that favored those that bought in bulk. In my mind, that IS out competing the small stores. The process is continuing to change today with internet purchases often being favored over the big box stores. Amazon has led the way and Walmart, Lowes and others are having to adapt.

Maybe not so much when it comes to trappers since the trapping community isn't that large compared to hunters and fishermen. But, the smart ones don't want to tick off hunters or fishermen.

I'm curious 1) what is the state penalty for carrying on posted premises 2) does your list include those businesses that the state or feds say it's illegal to carry at (USPS, schools fed buildings etc...)?

Here if a business is posted it's only a pity misdemeanor, NM state law prohibits carrying at bars and places like applebees.

Not sure, but I heard in MN if you walk into an establishment that prohibits concealed carry and they ask you to leave. If you do leave, nothing happens. If you don't, you can be arrested and depending on the circumstances, it could be a misdemeanor or more.

Same here trapper7. If the business does not have a posted sign and the request has to be requested by management of a business or the owner or tenant of a residence and it's a misdemeanor here.

The thing about walmart is they are one of the biggest or the biggest chain in the country which means they have the most employees nation wide. They pay low wages so many of these employees are on government subsidies. So keep shopping there and keep supporting welfare. It's your tax dollars. I refuse to shop there.

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.

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.

Interesting thread. I am with ADC. I think it’s way more effective to put a good face on trapping, 2nd amendment and so on in your own community. I don’t go to Walmart because I like to buy made in USA, but I don’t consider it boycotting as much as supporting USA workers. I know some stuff is just assembled here, but I try my best.

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.

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.

No your wrong. Sometimes you don't have a choice and other times you do. It's good to have values and stick to them and sometimes the best way to voice your stance is not supporting an entity that doesn't hold the same values as you.

Re: Your boycott list - 05/15/19 02:44 PM

I figured this thread would bring out some bashers (for lack of a better word).
I wasn't looking for opinions on "if" you should boycott any company. I simply choose not to support companies with certain views or agendas. The NFL for example (which I somehow forgot on my list) publicly accepts their overpaid players kneeling during the national anthem. I can not accept that, and WILL NOT support them. Yes, I know, some things I own/use are made by "anti" companies or made in China. With our world today, that is unavoidable. But I try to buy American and support local businesses. I try to give my hard earned money to businesses that share the same views and beliefs as me. That is what makes America great, we have that choice and option. Same reason I get my gas at the American owned "Shell" station instead of "Mohammed's Mini Mart".

Again, nobody is forced to shop there, or work there. Americans have the freedom of choice.
Posted By: Ditchdiver

Re: Your boycott list - 05/15/19 02:51 PM

Also, people will say, "Do you really think that you not shopping there has an impact? Do you think they will go out of business because you quit shopping there?" The answer is- NO. BUT, if everyone held their own ground and stood up to these companies it WOULD. I feel that I am just doing my part, as best I can. To each their own.

If not just read over some of these comments.

Hey, it's your prerogative to support known anti's, just as it is mine to not support them.

You missed my point entirely. NO ONE can boycott all the companies that don't have the same beliefs as you. Not unless you live like a cave man. Do you go to the DR? Ever been in a hospital? Bet someone some where has helped you that is an anti ..........................

Just that this soap box got boring months ago........

So we're all for capitalism but don't like the results? Are the wages and benefits at the local stores better than Wal Mart or Home Depot etc? I shop where I get the best value and service plus convenience and don't worry about who they voted for if their views are the same as mine. Someone mentioned not supporting a business run by a certain immigrant. How dare they be successful capitalists in our country. I guess you'd rather they collect welfare.

I don't think that's what any of us said. We like capitalism, we just don't like supporting people that want to take away our rights as Americans. That's the beauty of capitalism. Outdoors store A is owned by a person who is openly anti 2nd Amendment. Outdoors store B is owned by someone who openly supports all firearms ownership, as guaranteed in the constitution. I'll shop at store B. I don't want store A banned, I just won't shop there. It's matter of choice, not coercion.

I'm ok with capitalism. I'm also ok with FREEDOM OF CHOICE. They can be here and run a business, and I can choose not to shop there.
If you were referring to my "Mohammed's Mini Mart" comment, you should know that they come over here, get a business (gas station/convenience store) cheap and don't have to pay taxes for 7 years. This is to help them get started with their "American dream". At the end of their 7 years, they bring one of their family members over and transfer the business to them, thus, giving that family member 7 years tax free. I don't agree with that and CHOOSE not to support it. And still, MANY of them collect welfare......

I try to boycott all stupid folks but I do not want to live as a hermit so that's impossible. As far as companies I do my best to buy from companies that support my beliefs but if that is not possible I am not going to cut my nose off to spit my face.

Wal-Mart today is not what Sam Walton envisioned. When he died, the new people in charge changed it. Walmart is a big part of the welfare problem as it employs more people than any other business in this country. Many who are on welfare do to their income level. It's your tax money. Shop there if you want and keep supporting the welfare system. I dont.

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/wage-and-means/ you are right rusty springs he tried to evade paying minimum wage. He said his employees would never be the bread winners of the family. Now they are making good money. I figure walmart must have fired you at some point in your life.

Matt28. I never attacked you so I don't get your rude comment...however, no, I never got fired from walmart. Never even worked at one. I've been skilled trades most my life. Walmart is bad for America and American tax payers. Period.

Didn't mean to come off rude. Just trying to see why you hate walmart. I dont care one way or the other. I am just inquisitive I guess. I use to kinda hate walmart too I guess but learned a lot when I researched about them. They may sell China stuff but put American people to work.

Yes, many are on welfare do to their income levels. What else would it be?
Many are on welfare do to poor vocabulary also.
