No, I really don't have strong feelings about any place in particular.

mostly no, except Papa Johns, but then there are also like 10 other BETTER pizza choices in town, so I never have to go there again anyway. 

I knew people who boycot Costco because the president leans one way, too bad the company, as a whole, gives to both parties equally.  and then there were people who boycotted heinz during the year Kerry was running for president. that made me laugh! 

I think there's stuff that gets out that isn't the whole picture and people glom onto things and think that's all there is to believe, not knowing the whole story.

No. I respect companies for sticking to their beliefs even when it's against what "society" wants.

No but I refused to eat in the restaurant my ex boyfriend owns. My MIL eats there all the time and can not understand why I won't go there. It was not a nice break up and I am not going to put money into his pocket~

I don't eat any just killed animals from a poultry shop. I've seen them and their conditions are terrible and it's so sad. I can't choose a live animal to be slaughtered. I'd rather not see that.

I boycott Walmart sometimes, when I have bad service or can't find effing children's Tylenol for two weeks.

But that isn't really because of my beliefs. Haha.

Nah. I strongly disagree with some politics of various companies, but if I like their stuff, I like their stuff. Chick fil a is a prime example for me!
