Boycott General Mills. Boycott EVERY company that is pro-equality, go ahead.

The focus on the boycotts is misplaced, I feel. The boycotts are a more *personal* thing than that. If one can know or guess that lots of pro-gay people are refusing to touch chick-fil-a, that = success. End of discussion. Let the antigay go eat there. Let them eat it all they want. The P-O-I-N-T is that the P-R-O-G-A-Y are *not* going there. What could be simpler?

(By the way, the younger generations are not caring nearly so much about this boycott stuff. There are very pro-gay people in the younger generations who are still going to chick-fil-a all the time; they're basically finding the boycotts silly and irrelevant. They're entitled. Talk to any one of them and there is some company or some place that EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM will refuse to go based on personal convictions. Uh, that's the same as the chick-fil-a boycott.

It is actually *criticism of* the boycotts that I think is the MOST useless.)

I haven't signed anything, yet I am not buying General Mills products. The signatures, I'm sure, no where near reflected that actual number of people not buying. I guess we'll have to watch General Mills' sales reports to know for sure how effective the boycott is.

Perhaps you should only buy products made in China to be sure you’re not supporting companies that support Americans. After all you have your principles to uphold.

The General Mills protest is off to a hilarious start. It's worth watching.

I love how they just run away from a burning lawn and do basically nothing about it. I love that even more than his lisp and that fabulous shirt. I love it more than his gut and man boobs. How many laws did they violate in just 59 seconds? Arson, fleeing the scene of a crime, trespassing...

They noticed that they couldn't by something that was not General Mills made or parent company. Let alone the kids crying for their Cherrios! LOL. 24,000 a looooong way from 1 million.
