Do you mean on the 2016 election poison thread? That counts as daily political noise.

Actually no. I learned about these things on other threads.

Don't worry, just continue to use Amazan in a way that makes them loose money
Now THAT is worthy of a thread for itself. Methods for using companies that you disapprove of, so that they lose money!
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

That might be attributed to her designation into one of the following three categories: people that make things happen, people that watch things happen, and people who wonder what just happened  ;)
I would say the first category.

I agree but saying someone is pro/anti American based on where they shop is taking it to the limits.
Even the sky isn't the limit, here on DDF.

I'll take that as a compliment.
You should. I don't agree with a lot of things you say but at least you don't have your head buried in the sand.

And that is fine.
Boycotting is a personal decision and is in no way demanded.
Unless of course you're a liberal which in that case boycotting would be mandatory.

You really need to take off the blinders. Get out in the real world and meet different people to see what is really going on.

I don't think makes her less pro-American or bad.
Some people are willing or able to choose alternative options which is commendable.

How about when liberals boycott based on their perceived bigotry?

I think liberals are usually way more extreme than me.
They don't allow anyone to purchase from any company that is remotely related to, or doesn't disavow Trump.
And I'm talking full boycott, if they're starving in the desert they still won't buy food from a store that didn't curse out Trump.

My personal view is to only avoid companies that hate me, as long as I can do so conveniently.

That is a completely distorted view. You are lucky if 10-15% boycott. Liberals are just more committed and passionate about their causes. That would be something I figured most here would admire even if they disagree with the cause.

I think I would agree with your estimate, it makes sense.
Didn't mean to say that every liberal boycotts.

That generally stems from their arrogance and lack of אמונה. We can discuss next week.
