TAKE DOWN THE FLAG, THEN HAVE THE DEBATE…

June 24th, 2015

[Update at 0430: Clearly this story has serious legs.] Yesterday, in WALMART SAYS NO TO RACIST BATTLE FLAG… I applauded Walmart’s decision to no longer stock or sell merchandise bearing the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virgina.

RELIGIOUS WRONG LOSING HATE CAMPAIGN…

April 4th, 2015

Hating the sin but loving the sinner still brands you as a hater and increasingly makes you irrelevant in any political discussion in the United States of America. The latest stealth campaign from the religious wrong to banish members of the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender-Questioning community from political and social commerce is falling flat despite the best efforts […]

I’M BACK TO THE WRITING ON THE WAL

January 1st, 2015

AVOIDING THE PROBLEMS WITH BOYCOTTS…

July 22nd, 2014

Boycotts are always problematic, but they can be effective. Putting our money behind our personal convictions helped to bring down South Africa’s apartheid regime. But when does joining a consumer boycott of products or services produced by a specific company or originating in a given region of the world make sense? It’s a question that […]
