Buy Red, Live Red

The lefty web site buyblue.org lists companies that donate heavily to liberal causes, encouraging their readers to buy from those companies. At the bottom of their list are those companies that contribute 100% to the Republican Party.

Here is the list of Republican hundred-percenters: Michaels Stores, Scotts Miracle-Gro, Russell Stover Candies, Domino's Pizza, Best Buy, Ruby Tuesday, Fruit of the Loom, Krispy Kreme, Hooters and RE/MAX. Other huge Republican contributors, although not quite at 100%, are Outback Steakhouse, Wendy's, Domino’s Pizza and Oracle. These are the places that we should support with all our Red-State hearts and cash.

Those to avoid at all cost, the 100% Democratic Party companies, include: Men’s Wearhouse, IAC/Interactive (owns HSN and TicketMaster), Levi Strauss, SPS Studios (owns Blue Mountain Art – it figures!), Google (cozying up to the Chi-Coms), Polo, Dress Barn, Starwood Hotels, Loews Hotels and, (here is the killer for me) Starbucks. Other huge Democratic Party contributors, but not quite 100%, are Costco, J. Crew, Martha Stewart Living and (the biggest of all) Progressive Insurance. The PalosVerdesBlog BuyRed pledge is to shop elsewhere. Coffee Bean, here I come!

While we’re doing lists, Human Events online today published the list of America’s most liberal cities. (Thanks to John Lama for the tip.) In 10th place we have (ACU = American Conservative Union):

10. Seattle, Wash.

Well known for its environmentalist population. Home of Demo Rep. Jim McDermott (ACU lifetime rating: 2%) who claimed Saddam Hussein is more credible than President Bush and omitted the words "under God" when leading the Pledge of Allegiance on the House floor.

9. Newark, N.J.

One of the most crime-ridden cities in the country. Demo Rep. Donald Payne (ACU lifetime: 3%), defended Kofi Annan in oil-for-food scandals.

8. Berkeley, Calif.

Home to liberal University of California and Demo Rep. Barbara Lee (ACU lifetime: 4%). Denied rent subsidy to the Sea Scouts because its parent organization, the Boy Scouts, excludes gays and atheists. City council in 2004 passed resolution demanding "censure of President Bush for a litany of grievances."

7. Madison, Wis.
Represented by Demo Tammy Baldwin (ACU lifetime: 3%), a public lesbian who has pushed for hate crime protection for gender and sexual orientation. City Council supported a "cities for peace" resolution before the Iraq War began and a "Bring the Troops Home Now" referendum advocating immediate withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.

6. Portland, Ore.
Enacted an "urban growth boundary" that has caused high housing costs. Demo Rep. Earl Blumenauer (ACU lifetime: 5%), who represents the city, pushes a far-left environmental agenda.

5. Washington, D.C.
Known for irresponsible, bloated government run by liberal Democrats. Handguns banned, residents effectively prohibited from using guns to defend themselves in their homes.

4. Detroit, Mich.
Home of liberal Demo Rep’s Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick (ACU lifetime: 5%) and John Conyers (ACU lifetime: 5%), known for its high crime rate and unemployment. Named the "Most Liberal City" by non-partisan Bay Area Center for Voting Research in 2005.

3. New York, N.Y.
Represented by several leftists, including Jerry Nadler, Gregory Meeks, Anthony Weiner and Charlie Rangel. Has double the national average of abortions. Still attempting to sue the gun industry.

2. Boston, Mass.

Represented by liberal Demo Michael Capuano (ACU lifetime: 5%). Mayor Thomas Menino blames city's crime problem on guns from New Hampshire.

And topping the list, the most liberal city in the nation is:


1. San Francisco, Calif.
The home of liberal Minority Leader Nancy “The Brain” Pelosi (ACU lifetime rating: 3%) once claimed leftist Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein as its mayor. Current Mayor Gavin Newsom gave out same-sex marriage licenses in 2004 in violation of a state law. Board of Supervisors banned smoking in public parks, passed a resolution urging impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney and refused to accept the World War II battleship U.S.S. Iowa. Voters approved a handgun ban last November.

Although I enjoy visiting my son in San Francisco, after a few days there I get an uneasy feeling due to the flagrant drugs, homosexuals, pan handling, people living on the streets, trash everywhere and cultural filth. We're hoping John will move to the South Bay area of LA one of these days.

You have to remember that Starbucks is a Seattle based company (sometimes known as Seasshole) and Seattle is a big union town and very democratic. You have to forgive them for their ignorance. My mother has wondered how she gave birth to a blue person!! Forget coffee bean since you won't have the good conversation and it would take more gas to get there.
