I'm just an ordinary pissed off American and it is my belief now is the time to send the President and corporate America a very loud message. In 1955 the citizens of Montgomery, Alabama used the power of their pocketbooks to send the USA and the Montgomery Bus Line a message about racial segregation. 380 days later they were successful when the Supreme Court ruled Alabama and Montgomery law requiring segregated buses unconstitutional. The organizers were the greatest, brilliant, and got their message across in a peaceful manner.

Now more than ever we need another campaign like this one. I'm so confused as to whether or not you can use the word boycott so I will call it a campaign. The President turned the fact that the alt-left showed up to denounce hatred, bigotry, anti-semitisom, into something bad. He acts as if the members of these hate groups are more important than you regular American citizen.

It's time to show him how many peaceful, inclusive Americans there really are. We need someone to organize a "NoDoughDay" - a day in which each and every American who feels there is no place in American society for hate groups and that opposes the President's comments on the Charlottesville protest Does Not Spend a Dime. No charging on credit cards, no using debit cards, no spending cash. It can be done if those willing to participate plan ahead for that day.

The people of Montgomery, Alabama organized and accomplished their goal in 1955. Please is there anybody out there that could help set into play a "No Dough Day". A peaceful way protest without being accused of being bad people. Show our showboat President we have power with our pocketbooks. Sure, the fallout may hurt the billion dollar banks and corporations but have they ever been concerned if they hurt us? No.

If Flo Rida would rewrite the words to GDFR its chorus is the perfect fight song - it's goin down for real!!!

I don't mean to dampen a Great Idea but I already BOYCOTT ALL (as best I can) of these A-holes. It's easy when Reaganomics has made you so poor you don't have any money to spend anyway. I don't have a bank account at all. But my Mobile Home Park (after 15 years) has recently been taken over by some Wall Street swine Investment Group & I have No option but to pay them their ever-increasing rent. My Water bill (in liberal, Blue, California) recently went up to $40/month minimum before I use a Drop of water. By the time I manage to survive the only things I can afford are on eBay -- with a .8% PayPal card [soon no longer available!] -- from China. But I hope there are enough people not as desperate as myself (even though I have it relatively Good - in blue California) who CAN Use their $ against these evil thieves. It's a tough game & they already have so many of us by the balls. I also (theoretically) might have money "invested" in a 401-K which I'd hate them being able to touch & profit from (though I couldn't acknowledge it)... Starve the beast (if you can!).

How has Reaganomics made you poor?
