|Some People I Know Are So Radical They Wouldn't Wipe Their Ass with a Koch Bros Product|
My epiphany? Screw it. Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's.
There's a pretty concise little chart floating around with all the Koch Bros products on it. I can do that. Just not buy any of their shit. And I guess there are some other resources too I've stumbled across that will tell which corporate scum lurk behind which brightly packaged, smiley little products. I guess what I realized is that my little contribution or lack thereof isn't going to put any charter chains out of business or put their shareholders in a new Lear jet. But to make the life I have more complicated, more stress and grudge filled than it already is, to drive my family nuts with my little protests ends up making me and my causes look lame, petty and absurd. I will try within reason to avoid patronizing the easy ones. Loew's is an easy one.
As for the rest of it, I will do my part and when I can't I will sin with courage as Martin Luther advised the woman who came to him desperate that she couldn't stop sinning. There's also a nifty app called Buycott that you can get in the App Store. Unless of course you despise Apple and its awful mistreatment and exploitation of Chinese workers in its factories. See what I mean?
