  1. while I completely agree with a boycott in principal, it has been my experience that the only people who suffer are those who have their hours cut back or get laid off or lose their jobs altogether as a result of reduced sales. They in turn must make cut backs which affect a secondary group of workers . It is estimated that the Koch brothers employ over a 100,000 people with families that need that income. just a thought....

  2. M.R.: True. But don't we boycott thousands of products every time we leave the grocery store with a couple bags of stuff? We choose by quality, price, color, packaging, or because their advertising worked. When I buy Northern over Brawny, won't I increase the jobs at Northern, and the secondary group of workers supplying that manufacturer. There is no net change in theory.
