Time for Solidarity-A Single Boycott Target-One by one of those that supress us
11/7/12 | self

Posted on 11/07/2012 8:00:11 PM PST by Be Careful

Someone stole our election.

Who stole from us via TARP?

Who owns/runs media outlets that conspire to destroy our world view and to steal elections?

Who aids and abets the obsfucation of our Consitution and Rule of Law?

Who advertises with these same?

Why do we continue to willingly give them our money so that they can continue to thrive and further harm us?

Time for a singular point of action.

Boycott......but whom?????

A simple target for starters, to be expanded to the entire scope of the Elite Media

I suggest:

1. GE

2. any of their advertisers on MSNBC

Any suggestions?

Drop cable/dish. You pay for the channels even if you don’t watch them.

Screw the Left. Defund them starting now.

Throw away the TV. I have not had one, did not raise my kids on one, they do not raise theirs on one. Needless drivel listened to as background noise still influences your opinions. You say that it males you aware of what the other side is saying, but all too often you get taken in at some point. The brain programs things heard over and over again and begins to accept some of it as true.

Defund by virtue of carefully selecting where you spend. Money will be getting tighter for all, very soon.

Boycott Time-Life-Warner-Turner. that nets you Warner Cable, Time Magazine, CNN, the WB, WEA, Warner Records, and much more.

Boycott Disney. That carries with it GLBTABC and ESPN.

Cancel newspapers. Cancel magazines. Cancel talk radio.

Cancel Fox News. Cancel TV.

Start going to the library to check out free books. Expand your mind.

Prepare for the end of the USA. The riots when the stock market tanks
to 1000 points and the unemployment rate at 20% will be rampant
in every city and state.

Don't think of it as a boycott. Think of it as not giving your hard-earned money to people who will use that money against you.

And yes, it works.

Support instead those that report the truth, like maybe The Blaze TV via the web if you're like me and don't want the alphabets taking their part of your subscription.

There are others out there... Let's grow them and starve the MSM.

“Boycotts never work. Move on to plan B.”

The effective type of ‘boycott’ is one in which you don't waste your time trying to selectively ‘defund’ a specific company, but one in which you spend your money very selectively on products and services from companies who share at least part of your world view. Reward those who deserve it.

To that end, it really is important that we identify amongst ourselves who we feel is worthy of our economic support. One thing I will personally do is to spend money more selectively on books from authors who deserve support, and avoid spending a dime at the movies. I have absolutely no desire to fund Hollywood. In fact, I would suggest watching foreign subtitled movies if you need a movie ‘fix’, and teach yourself a foreign language in the process.

Who says boycotts never work? The only hammer the conservatives have is our buying power. Please review my Conservative Action Plan from 2009. It terrified the conservatives that I shared it with because it could harm the economy. Please review it again. Suppose we had engaged upon this plan back in 2009? The damage it would have done would have been miniscule compared to the damage that Obama did. http://backyardfence.wordpress.com/conservative-action-plan/

Summer movies - all of them. A summer without theater audiences. That would go directly to their income. Even a partial reduction will hurt. Most media companies have ownership or interests in the studios. And then there is the effect on the producers, writers, actors. They exist in the same cultural world as the news people.

Can you give me time to unload the GE stock that I inherited from my parents that was supposed to allow me to retire someday? Dad started with GE in 1953 and retired after a couple of heart attacks in 1977.

Sure,

First you need a decent connection to the Internet.

Purchase a roku device if you don't have a Internet TV.

Some providers are: The Blaze, Netflix, Hula, Amazon prime, Rush Limbaugh, MLB and many, many others. There are some available free through Roku, including several streaming movie channels. You can check out what's available through roku at the link above.

I think boycotts do work, but it can take a herculean effort to organize... simply identifying the target(s) of the boycott and spreading the word thru social networks is not enough. Critical mass is getting millions motivated, and its costly, by any other name, its a campaign. The better effort is not just identify what you want to boycott, but also what you want to support. Example, I and many others refuse to watch any news channel other than Fox; its to Fox’s benefit and its to the profitability of other networks.

So If you say don’t use GE products... ie. lightbulbs and toaster ovens, that’s fine....but who do I use and do they support conservative causes? That’s how you begin the blueprint.

Was talking about this with each of my grown kids today. Like-minded producers need to trade, barter, do business with each other. Just like greenies support their own. We can leave a mark if we get serious about it. we also need to get our families out of the public school systems.

Summer movies - all of them.

Make use of RedBox.com. Movies are only a little over a buck. If you create an account, you will receive notices of new releases and you can reserve your movie online and pickup at the nearest Redbox location. It works great.

One other think, most cable/sat companies don't advertise this but they have simple packages that do not include the alphabet networks and then you can build on this package with single subscriptions to channels The Blaze on Dish 212. :)

Just sayin'

Sumpin' else I've been thinking and wondering about, how a national conservative week long holiday would be received.

What percent of the population declaring a nationwide holiday would cause most activity within that nation to cease?

Would the 47% of the population who don't pay taxes and whom most don't work pick up the load?

” Like-minded producers need to trade, barter, do business with each other.”

Yep, and although frowned upon by those who want to dictate to us, I would include that we should try to hire those who are like-minded, and form networks to help the like-mined to get jobs and appointments. It's markedly hypocritical, in my view, for politicians to use their connections to ensure that their sons and daughters and friends get swanky appointments and positions, while pushing federal policy that designed to keep us from doing the same.

Amac provides the same product but they don 't support liberal agendas.

Once we make sure that everyone is off of AARP we move on to the next group, lets say Starbucks.

Subscription TV is not the way to go to get your message out to the masses. I like Beck... but discerning re: his message and motivation. Need to have three news networks for national/international news, business news and social commentary that are conservative oriented. I’m looking for something to get involved in and I certainly would this.

Simple, but will require significant amounts of attention from every good conservative.

If you are a small business person, company executive or corporate officer...

1. Take personal interest in your company’s hiring decisions. Require any new applicant to provide access to their personal social networking profiles. (Many companies do this now for screening reasons.) Any active participant in liberalism, regardless of qualification, is rejected. No exceptions.

2. It’s your company, make it look like it. Let them survive on the companies they start and own (they’ll most likely learn something about what “conservatism” means).

3. I know this is “intolerant”, but we are talking about the survival of the nation here folks. They’re taking no prisoners,(or hadn’t you noticed). It’s time to be as cold as they are.

It will take time folks, but it’s us or them now.

We need to create a ‘New Mainstream Revenuestream’

This can be an umbrella concept to create a new center for us to focus our economic drivers to support/reward those that agree with our view.

Conversely, we can withold our money from those that supress us.

This is war.

” Maybe health co-ops or groups formed and doctors hired?”

I would be very happy to participate in such a venture, but it would require having attorneys look at all the restrictions the government has put in place before going forward. For instance, the government restricted physicians from owning health care facilities (it's OK, of course, for lawyers to own huge law firms). Thus, ownership would have to be non-physician (don't know if non-practicing physicians could be involved).

At this point, my passion for practicing medicine is at the lowest point ever in my life. I used to dream of getting into medical school when I was in college, and when I got that opportunity it was a dream come true. I don't take vacations, and have missed more holidays and weekends with family than I care to think about, but I'm part of the problem that needs to be reformed. Those who feel entitled to my services without payment are the Tiny Tims, and I am the Scrooge, even though I would never turn away anyone who really needed care because of a payment issue.

Oh well.

No, not just a personal boycott.
A movement would be required.
Limbaugh and co. might be good at this.

They could add a daily message - no movies in theaters this summer. Give Hollywood empty seats - and announce it well beforehand.

Do something else with the kids.
You can rent them all later anyway.

Have a DL who is an OBGYN and you don't have to tell me what you docs have to go through. I've seen it first hand. After all the pain to get your license, countless hours of selfless service, and litigation risks, it's outrageous that you're the first profession to be basically turned into slaves of the state.

It's why we must find a solution/way around the Obamacare disaster in the interest of our citizen's health-care needs and to protect the professional health-care providers.

If the states can't step in with a solution, perhaps private enterprise can find one.

For instance, the government restricted physicians from owning health care facilities (it's OK, of course, for lawyers to own huge law firms).

Now this has got to be unconstitutional!

It's the same as restricting a mechanic from owning a shop, a farmer from owning a farmer's market, a ...
