    ...both ways.

    When I buy a new car I want to support a local business that shares my values. They could compete on that basis.

    If Sonora Ford makes a $1,000 Donation to BLM and Sonora Subaru makes a $1,000 Donation to a 'Recall Newsom" campaign, they are signaling their values.

Thanks to the Supreme Court decision in Citizens United, corporate donations are protected free speech.

The corporations like Coke, and Delta depend on the dopes that never keep up with facts, those people are like the Turkey vultures sitting along the roads waiting for someone to kill a squirrel. Just keep those freebies coming. Look up all of Coke’s products and quit buying them, same goes for Delta, these dumbasses think joining in the political market will make them look good, I’ve got news for you, you are going to pay a price for your mistakes, and it can’t come soon enough!

    Just ask MLB, NFL and the NBA if their political stances and their highly paid kneelers if they have been monetarily affected. I refuse to watch those sports because of their disrespect of the National Anthem. I've never tuned them in to find out anything about politics and won't buy anything that says NIKE either.

      Then again, I have bought NIKE specifically because they are supporters of BLM and progressive values. So it's maybe a net win for them...

    Mr. President? Is that you? There are gentlemen here from the Southern District of New York who have some questions for you. And Matt Gaetz called again while you were golfing earlier... He says it's urgent this time.

Have you ever stopped to ask yourself why these companies are opposed to voter suppression?

    Drink that cool aid.

    Voter suppression was real when the Democrats tried to keep the black community down.

    When you don't have facts, just yell racism.

What Tucker Carlson has done in recent weeks is advocate for a full and open embrace of fascism, launder the violence of January 6th into a legitimized action, and now is pushing white supremacist/white terrorist concepts of Replacement.

    Corporations aren’t owned by USA. Sold out to foreign countries. Bet all of the loving left is wearing something made from South America. By the way it is a continent. Not a state.

      Corporations are in the business to make money.
      Those that stay in touch with politics, government, and our freedoms, will understand that it really doesn't matter what Coke, Delta, Nike, NFL, NBA, and MLB outlook really means.
      If you are afraid of these stands you are one those that tries to isolate yourself from the urban masses.
      The conservative Christian outlook on this modern age of coexistence is bred on fear of the urban masses.
      The key being fear.

      quite the opposite. IN fact, they prohibit their product from being used by companies selling firearms.

      But I guess that's the point. some companies you like. some you don't. it's their right.
