You classless fool! Isn't your economy-wrecking party all for equality and choice? What if the owners where a gay couple would you boycott the store because of that choice? I for one am not a tea party supporter because of their extreme right views but I will always support local businesses. You might not understand this because of your democratic views but small businesses are the ones that keep small towns like ours going. Go ahead and boycott them and watch yet another small business go down.

That's fair. Show your colors with your pocket book. It's just about all anyone understands any more. Small businesses fold every day. If you want to politicize your business and that causes it to fail, you have only yourself to blame.

The store is owned by small business Americans. Support them! Forget about their political affiliation just support them. It's ok that we all have political differences it is our right to have differeces but we have to remember divided we as a country will fall and...we are on our way.

At least the store is clean!
Honest, hard-working, owned by people who live here and pay their taxes here! This town is fill of hypocrites!
Why not support home-town businesses!?
Oh, I forgot, small minded individuals will find any reason to boycott businesses they don't patronize in the first place!

I think everyone should own a business! Then you can see what it feels like to:
1). Hear that people are making false accusations about your business
2). Watch your 'friends' support your competitors
3). think all you do is 'open the door and turn on the lights' meanwhile you work 20 hour days!
4). Have sleepless nights worrying about making payroll
5). You took the risk in opening a business and yet the gov't wants you to pay for those who 'aren't as fortunate'!

Yeah, it's a real thrill owning a business!!
Uh oh

I hope your business does better. Maybe you should let us know what it is so we can support your business. I am all for supporting local business.

Everything is cheaper at Wal-Mart. There, you'll save $.11 on your entire purchase!

Now that's funny!!

And yet that's the mentality of this town!

I had to laugh last year when a 'group' firmed to save the drive-in! People were commenting about what a shame it is that it's closing.....and how 'we used to go there years ago, as a family....blah, blah, blah'

Well....news flash-the 20.00 bucks you spent there years ago was not sufficient to sustain the drive-in!

I know it's a tough concept, but for businesses to stay THEY NEED SUPPORT! So when your town has nothing but LARGE BOX stores, and you didn't support the 'home grown' businesses, blame YOURSELF!

Wake up Latrobe! Look how well Ligonier businesses do.....what do they do differently? Oh, it's simple - they support their local merchants!

Doesn't take a genius!

That all changed when they started bringing that party stuff right into there business and promoting those views. I for one will not buy there any-longer and I hope others do the same.

So it's the "think as I think" mentality or I will not like you anymore. You said you used to go there before you supposedly found this out, but now that they don't have the same views you no longer want to go there. Typical liberal BS retaliation!

You should go thee and shoot the shit with them. See what they say? Tell them your point of views and why their point of views suck and explain. See if they will stand their ground based on a poster o based on an actually well-thought-out understanding of whatever it is their posters are about.

There's probably -- only one -- thing that they believe, and that's why they hung the poster.

If they tell you that women shouldn't have abortions,-- tell them all the gory details about the thee you've have...lol

Anyone remember who caused the US credit rating to fall last year w/the BS over the Debt Ceiling? Do you know that caused loan interest rates to rise? Do you know who caused those problems?

That's right, the TEA Party. They've done more damage than good.

LOL'ing @ you guys that want to support them. They don't support you.

God forbid someone has a different opinion than someone else. Americans are such pussies anymore...if someone doesnt agree they stomp their feet cross their arms, protest, or boycott. It gets worse every freaking day too. We are talking about a convienience store for Christ sake...not like they are going to change anything world or US related....let the people alone!
