    is making a list (and checking it twice) of companies we will not support, and the list is looking extremely like "if you say anything that could sound negative, then you'll be blacklisted". And what that's creating is an elitist progressive agenda that's separated from the common individual. I mean, this is exactly what Michael Jordan was talking about in the 90s when he said that Republicans buy sneakers too (in response to why he didn't take more political stances). Are we really going to boycott every business that makes a statement that's not in support of the progressive agenda? Is that the only way we have to change the mindset of a business? What about the individuals within a business? What about businesses that give part of their profits to charities? What about businesses that support some progressive issues and reject others (as many people at this site do)?

    I really don't think that the issues are as cut and dry as this. So like I said, this statement doesn't cross my line to say its time for a boycott.
