    I was going to question the accuracy because Circuit City is on it. Microsoft/Best Buy colluded to put them (and CompUSA) out of business several years ago.

    Then I searched it and found they opened a store or two again in the NYC area.

    I go to COSTCO. It's pretty clear they're a bunch of lefties. But there's nothing at all comparable around here. I used Sam's Club in the past. But I don't care for some of the prices or some of the products. And they're more likely to sell larger quantities that I can never use up before they expire. (I once bought some garlic something or other - powder, salt, I don't remember - that was so large I barely used 1/4 of it before it was way beyond the toss-by date, which is usually a few months after the sell-by date on such products.)

    My son used to go to Sonic, but hasn't in a long time. Maybe he got over it.

    I don't use any products that would have the Heinz name on them. My wife and son use those sorts of things, but I can't recall seeing that bad word on any of the labels for a long time.

    I'm more likely to use the blue ones. Except for a few.

    I dropped P&G when they pulled out of sponsoring the planned (and killed) Dr. Laura TV show. I can't stand her, but it was the idea that they let themselves be bullied by 2-3% of the population.

    When I wrote to P&G about it, they denied that was the reason. But funny how it happened at the exactly same time a couple of others did exactly the same thing (one was the current version of AT&T, not the original one) at the precise same time a boycott of planned advertisers (by 2-3% max of the population) was going on over Dr. Laura having a TV show. Anyway, I've never used P&G or AT&T since. P&G is a hard one because they make some of their products here and they're hard to escape.

    I also recently swore off McDooDoo. (I should have a long time ago because of what they are, but they're too convenient when I'm on my way to work and cheaper than a couple of the others.)  For one things I was getting sick of their race-pandering ads. I put up with it when they were catering to mostly blacks and few whites, then eventually all blacks and no whites (watch the ads if you don't believe me). But it was starting to get really old. Then they decided to go political, blasting Trump and praising Obama. "Offically" they claim it wasn't theirs, that it was either hacked or an employee did it. Then they took it down. But it turns out Robert Gibbs (who worked for Barry Soetoro) was/is on the board in charge of corporate relations (dealing with such things as advertising and promoting company image to the public and other businesses). I doubt he'd personally do it, but he can certainly encourage an atmosphere that would make it seem OK. (Is there a connection to all black ads and praising the ex-Emperor? Not out of the realm of possibility.) It's also questionable how an ordinary employee would have the access that allows them to post whatever they feel like saying on the site. Which indicates somebody in an official position holds such beliefs and also thinks it's fine to say it out loud. Finally the subject was totally dropped after the claim of it not being "official" even though there are still a lot of people calling for a boycott.

    I always complain to my wife that it seems all the ads not just Mc'D;s are mostly black any more.
    Hey us inferior whites buy stuff too.
