RedState has a fascinating diary post today that neatly encapsulates everything I’e been feeling about greedy, evil corporations lately (that are actually, tryly greedy, evil corporations):
Costco is now involved with former Vice-President Al Gore (and his becoming more apparent by the day), deceitful and dangerous one-world-government / carbon-credit scheme.
I’ve canceled my Costco membership and explained my reasoning in a very calm and nicely worded letter sent via overnight express (recipient-only signature required) to Costco’s CEO and will CC the same via e-mail to other Costco executives.
Page 2 through 4 of the following PDF link (2008 Proxy) show the current directors for Costco…… another interesting set of individuals involved with…… well, let’s just call them ’slightly slanted entities’…….. http://media.corporate-ir.net/media_files/irol/83/83830/08_proxy_cost.PDF
Now then, just for laughs (and also because I instinctively knew what I was going to find), I looked around and Mr. Sinegal has made some interesting political donations over the past several years………. http://www.newsmeat.com/ceo_political_donations/James_Sinegal.php
A corporation can do what it wants, as long as it’s legal. Supporting Mr. Gore and his goals is a corporate choice Costco has made.
So is my dropping using their services and explaining why.
One of the commenters added this:
I do not spend my money with companies that support leftist and socialist causes. I will be doing the same tomorrow. That is why I return every invitation to join AARP in the pre-paid envelope not completed. I will be following the same course as you. It is also unfortunate that the list of offenders grows daily.
I will not:
- Drink Pepsi
- Buy Progressive Insurance
- Buy any product of GE
- Pay to watch a movie with Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Cameron Diaz, Sean Penn (easy, they all suck).
- Pay to attend NFL games since my thinking like Rush’s is divisive (would not want to offend the Felon’s)
- Al will not shop at Home Depot because they fired an employee for wearing a pin supporting the troops
Just wondering if any of the assclowns that run these companies are listening, or care?.
Like I said , list grows longer
And don’t forget GEICO, whose acronnym stands for “Government Employees Insurance Company;” Very closely aligned with the SEIU.
Time to renew that Sam’s Club membership, I think. Buh-bye Costco.
