This month we saw people burning their NIKE shoes in protest over their Kaerpernick ad. We saw Democrats call to boycott In-and-Out Burger because they gave to the Republican Party, despite the fact that they also previously gave to Democrats.
I think it is more enduring and rewarding to do a ‘buycott’ over a boycott. Put your time and money into the companies and organizations you believe in.
I did it this month with Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing sitcom. Fox Television just revived this canceled series. I did not know this show existed until now. I was taken aback at how hilarious it is watching Tim Allen (who plays a conservative, blue collar super-outdoorsman) raise three daughters and deal with life issues and political correctness.
