THE AIR AMERICA BLACKOUT
This is simply shocking. Though why anything should shock me anymore, I don't know.
I've been bitterly missing my daily fix of Air America on my commute to and from work. It suddenly disappeared one day from Dallas and was replaced by some right-wing Catholic programming. Then, of course, I read that the AA network was in deep financial straits.
I guess now I know why. Corporate America was boycotting it. Can't stay on the air without advertising bucks.
Well, in response, here I go with another one of my personal boycotts. (I refused to buy any Nestle products for more than a decade, until they ceased their predatory practice of providing artificial milk products to the newborn infants of impoverished mothers in third-world countries, which resulted in the mothers' natural milk drying up and forcing them to buy formula for their babies or seeing those babies die of malnutrition.) I hereby pledge not to support any of the companies participating in the Air America boycott with one thin dime of my hard-earned dollars. And dang, this one won't be easy. Take a gander at the list -- it's everything from Hewlett Packard and Microsoft to McDonald's, Clorox, Coke and Pepsi.
Good thing I prefer RC Cola.
