    without using GP products...  sorry but that's pretty much impossible.

    that's why they're so motherfucking rich.

      and let's face it - the Koch's have their money.  Boycotts hurt the workers the most.

      I try to buy American if possible - if GP went under, I'm sure there are plenty of Asian companies in the wings who are more likely a lot less enviromentally friendly than the Koch's.

      I understand that these "Yeah, let's boycott these guy's" sounds good but just think of what you might get to replace them.

        I boycott/have boycotted veal, swordfish, shark, pen-raised salmon, canned tuna, Shell Oil, Domino's Pizza, HCA, Dean Foods, Perdue chicken, lettuce/grapes/whatever-the-United-Farm-Workers-are-boycotting, major GOP contributor Home Depot, Disney & ABC, Faux Noise, United Way (in its more corrupt days), you name it. The world of workers has somehow survived, and occasionally a boycott has returned some results.

        I know we're little Davids up against a 300-foot-tall Goliath, but as long as I have rocks and a sling, I'm going to keep on slinging.

        I don't need no estinking Brawny.
