That title should be a conservative Boycott slogan.

The left uses their mouth to scream for boycotts. We should be more practical and practice what we eat. ( bad pun but I couldn’t resist)

I ran across this article on the political affiliations of restaurant chains. That’s what got me rambling.

*note I’m having a little fun here too . Please don’t get offended.

The two obvious ones first

Chick-fil-A =good guys
Starbucks = bad guys

Pizza Hut = good guys
Chipotle= Bad guys
Papa John’s= good guys
Shake shack= Bad guys
White castles= good guys
Dairy Queen= Bad guys
Waffle house= good guys
Panera Bread= bad guys
KFC = Good guys
Popeyes chicken=bad guys
McDonald’s= good guys
Wendy’s= good guys
IHOP= good guys

Now if you take a look at that list. Conservatives have pizza, hamburgers and after a night on the town munchies locked up.

I could suffer through a boycott on pizza, hamburgers and chili cheese omelettes.

What about you ?

I think half the boycots were started by people allied with competitors of restaurants who would benefit if people avoided the restaurant they were boycotting. I think it is most often just a ploy to steer customers to another business in town.

I don't much care for starbucks coffee, they seem to be way overpriced and have turned a decently healthy cup of coffee into something not very good for people.

My post was tongue in cheek of course.

But I have to say that I think most conservatives really wouldn’t pay attention to the political affiliation of fast food chains.

But I’m not at all certain the left would feel the same way .

Chick-fil-A is a perfect example .

The left basically considers it a satanic cult devoted to destroying the LGBT community.

It’s a good thing we would have kid rock standing at the door defending waffle house .

Other than being ok, we used that to make bunny shadows on the tent with a flashlight in cub scouts. I know, shadows are black. Now how could anyone turn that into a bad hand sign? But they did. The swastika was actually a revered good sign till Hitler used it on his flag.

When are you guys going to admit that both sides play the same stupid games.
If you can be honest with youselves there are plenty of times that conservatives have done exactly the same thing.
And it's just as dumb as when the liberals do it.

Good point, but we suck at boycotts.

You guys have your s**t together on that aspect of politics .

Even better news.

The beverage that is key to western civilization is in play.

Conservatives tend to drink more big brand beer PBR, Budweiser, Coors, Miller and the like . At a purchase rate of 81% conservative and 65% liberal .

Liberals on the other hand drink more craft beer than conservatives . At a purchase rate of 59% liberal 39% conservative.

The big breweries sure as heck could sustain a boycott better than the small breweries.

The odds are stacking up on the conservative side. We have hamburgers, pizza, beer and late night drunk hungry food cornered.

That sounds more like a party than a boycott .

We might be able to show unity and win this for a change .

I gotta check.

But I sure hope the left doesn’t have a monopoly on toilet paper manufacturers or all hope is lost .

T.P ?

This got me thinking about people (not you, I know it was sort of in jest) who are so far gone that they care or believe that a restaurant chain has a political identity. They don't.

Are there places that go out of their way to be political in bad ways? Sure, but mainly these are independently owned joints, not national chains.

Do some higher ups within said chains tend to be politically vocal? Sure.

At the end of the day, the business itself has no identity politics, nor does it care what it's patrons believe or not believe. If one chooses to not eat Chick-Fila (just an example) because one feels the founders are anit-gay, that does not mean anything to Chick-fila. They will happily serve anyone who walks in or drives through, regardless.

This notion that the sometimes barely even broadcast political or social views of some CEO makes the entire company and all it's employees somehow evil, is just more evidence of the damaged political mind.

"You know, I used to like Gary and Helen next door, but their son works at that evil Papa John's now. I just don't think I can associate with them anymore." As if the kid took a job kicking puppies for fun.

Mentally damaged political brains!

Ok, now I am going to increase my stock of Toilet paper from thirty rolls to a hundred rolls just incase the Liberals start to boycott Scotts 1000 toilet paper....the kind that I use because it is better for the septic tanks. The 1000 sheet rolls are definitely a conservative toilet paper, after all, Conservatives need big rolls because they are full of....... The Liberals are always pissin and moaning, only the women need just a little toilet paper to piss.

If I had to guess I’d say conservatives use 1 ply John Wayne like toilet paper .

Liberals used 2-ply it’s fluffy, softer and they’ve got a lot more to clean up .

Scotts 1000 ARE one ply.

That definitely makes it John Wayne toilet paper.

One ply is great it’s just a little hard to take notes on when you’re in a pinch . ( all kinds of puns there take your pick ) 🤔
