Anyhow, just thought I would post this link because it highlights in red businesses which contribute to the Gop mostly. I can now choose more intelligently where to shop! :) We can beat them at their own game by choosing red over blue!
Welcome to FR
Welcome aboard, good post, the more info the better.
Welcome to Free Republic.
Check out my bio and learn about sKerry.
Welcome to Free Republic. Thanks for the list, but the timing is really bad ... no one goes shopping this time of year.
~WELCOME TO FreeRepublic!!!~
Ha ha ha! Good one~ I was just thinking about all the crazy shoppers out yesterday. Then a commercial came on TV for shopping online. They are out to get our money big time~
Thanks. I've bookmarked it and will definitely buy my new range from Home Depot next year! Also, welcome to Free Republic!
Who'd have thunk Barnes and Noble would be in the Dem column! /sarcasm off
Looks good, though I don't think its a good thing to have Dollar General in our corner :/
I'm glad to see that Home Depot is a red store. I spend so much money there, they'd go broke without my little home-improvement projects. I work just down the street from the local HD and spend my lunch hour in their drooling over the big miter saws.
Welcome aboard FRiend and FReeper. Thanks for the list, I just cut and pasted it into an e-mail to my friends and family. Nice work.
Well, since I am practically living at Home Depot these days, it makes me feel good to know it is a 'red' business.
I won't shop at Target, though, until and unless they allow the Salvation Army back. Other than that, good list.
Nice list, it will come in handy during the Christmas shopping season. Welcome to FR.
Good first post. I can't confirm your percentages from prior knowledge, but I can confirm that you've gotten the leanings of many of these companies right.
My only quarrel is not with you but with conservatives generally, for letting the leftist networks foist these labels of red and blue onto us. Republicans have always been true blue and Democrats have always been marxist red. Why should we let some mogul at ABC/NBC/CBS&Co. reverse the colors on us for propaganda purposes?
The coasts should be red and the heartland blue.
Although Amazon is probably somewhat liberal, they are not nearly as far out as Barnes & Noble. They don't go so far out of the way to hide conservative books, for instance. If those are your choices, Amazon is preferable.
I've never shopped at Target ever since I found out that it is foreign owned and operated by a French firm.
