Boycott the NBA and don't buy any merchandise. Time to hit these people where it counts: their wallets!

Don't buy any jerseys of these players:

"The list of players in the “Obama Classic” so far, according to campaign materials, includes: Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire, Chris Bosh, Vince Carter, Tyson Chandler, Jamal Crawford, Kevin Durant, Baron Davis, Patrick Ewing, Derek Fisher, Rudy Gay, Blake Griffin, Tyler Hansbrough, Dwight Howard and Juwan Howard.‬ ‪ ‬ ‪Also on the list: Antawn Jamison, Dahntay Jones, Brandon Knight, Kevin Love, Jamal Mashburn, Cheryl Miller, Alonzo Mourning, Dikembe Mutombo, Chris Paul, Quentin Richardson, Doc Rivers, Steve Smith, Jerry Stackhouse, Ray Allen, Tina Thompson, John Wall and Russell Westbrook."

It's time to take America back. Celebrity corruption has run amuck!

It's time to boycott the NBA forever. Don't buy any merchandise. Let's hit these "millionaires and billionaires" where it counts the most: their wallets!

Don't buy jerseys from these players:

"The list of players in the “Obama Classic” so far, according to campaign materials, includes: Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire, Chris Bosh, Vince Carter, Tyson Chandler, Jamal Crawford, Kevin Durant, Baron Davis, Patrick Ewing, Derek Fisher, Rudy Gay, Blake Griffin, Tyler Hansbrough, Dwight Howard and Juwan Howard.‬ ‪ ‬ ‪Also on the list: Antawn Jamison, Dahntay Jones, Brandon Knight, Kevin Love, Jamal Mashburn, Cheryl Miller, Alonzo Mourning, Dikembe Mutombo, Chris Paul, Quentin Richardson, Doc Rivers, Steve Smith, Jerry Stackhouse, Ray Allen, Tina Thompson, John Wall and Russell Westbrook.‬"

They should be raising money for homeless kids instead of money for Obama and his failed leadership.

To Everyone:
I want to ask, who's a better Candidate than Obama? Mitt Romney, Newt Gangrene, Hick Ferry!?!
You Tea Baggers really need to re-evaluate. By the way, as i've been saying for over the last 3 yrs i'm a Repub. myself. How embarrassing!!

Taking back from whom? From 1% gready lobbyist, bankers that putting 99% of us aside leaving us with no health care, with no jobs, with no houses, with no food, with high cost of education, with a broken immigration... You should be one them, shameless. We need to support Obama, re-elect him and this we will make sure we vote most democrats in the congress. And recall those republicans congressmen.. America is for Americans not for 1%.
