    A local coffee shop put up republican signs for various races in 2008. I sent them an email to let them know I would no longer patronize their shop because of those signs, which is a shame as they are non-chain.

    Anyway, they haven't put out signs since, so perhaps they recognized it didn't make good business sense.

    If you have more than you need but don't have empathy you must be a republican.

      the business know WHY you're not coming back.  It can be done very politely---in fact I find the nicer you are the more nervous they look.  

      It seems crazy that people who own a business can't figure this out without a customer telling them, but then that's why I wrote this diary. These days there seems to be a real lack of common sense out there when it comes to politics.
