Everyone should quit smoking (cigarettes). Talk about supporting the corporations. Don't fool yourself with rolling tobacco either!

Yeah! Let's start with Quantum Group of Funds & BNK Petroleum. They are the most evil companies in the world! Let's start the revolution there! C'mon let's go!

The biggest greed driven organizations are the labor unions and their bosses. I've made a career out of boycotting them.

Define "Greed Driven." Corporations are bound by business ethics to act in the interests of the shareholders. It is kind of like asking us to boycott sports teams that are "winning-record" driven, or a dog for being "food driven."

These companies are playing by the rules (usually) that we set for them and trying to maximize that system to their advantage and have every right and obligation to do so. I'd be more in favor the sentiment to band companies who were breaking the law, but that's kind of what we have a justice system for.

How about you start with what ever computer company you use? then you can move on to your internet provider.
