LOMA Dollars


As the economic slowdown continues, selective buying by LOMAs will have an important impact. In the last election cycle, an activist website called “buyblue” put together a list of favorability ratings for businesses, and encouraged their supporters to do business with the higher rated companies.

They have since taken down their list, but it was saved by a pro-McCain website. As the companies with the highest “buy blue” rating have chosen sides in the political struggle, I think it is important to remind them that business is not an entitlement program. If they want conservative customers, they need to earn their business.

Here is the list. Remember, the higher the rating, the more favorable to liberal causes they are.

LOMA Says: “Whenever Possible – – Shop Accordingly.”

  1. You need to add Heinz/Del Monte to that list. Owned by Kerry/Pelosi. I don’t know where they rank, but they deserve the top spot.

  2. Your info is inaccurate. This list is a few years old and is only reliable with up to date information. The ratings were based on contributions to Dem/Rep campaigns. These numbers could have changed and likely did. You should do some research into what the donation spread is between the two parties, then you could have your own buyred.com. People would love you. Women would flock.

  3. People would love you. Women would flock.
    Men want to be me. Fish fear me.

  4. can’t get the vid to load. I’ll have to check it later.

  5. I emailed it to you earlier. You will really like it. It’s also at my place and swampie’s.

  6. The Magic Mulatto wants you. Change… Obama Announces Creation Of His Marxist Youth Corps

    When you are forced to work for no pay, that’s imprisonment.

  7. I saw that, Robert D. Hopiness +Changiness=Dopiness.

    BTW, saw that video late last night, when I got home. Pretty good rant, IMHO.

  8. Zo needs to get involved on a national scale. He makes a lot of sense.

  9. Unh hunh. Forced servitude without pay is called “slavery”. Pretty ironic that slavery is being instituted by a black president, ain’t it?

  10. Excellent observation, Swampie.

  11. I wonder if only typical white people will have to serve?

  12. Wuh oh. I picked up a huge load of pumpkins for feed, and grandsons want me to carve all thousands of them into jack-o-lanterns. Now. This morning. Before breakfast.

  13. *sigh* Can’t put it off any longer.
