Counter boycott favors Arizona

Groups tries to bring business to state with new immigration law.

Congress.org - Counter boycott favors Arizona (http://www.congress.org/news/2010/04/30/counter_boycott_favors_arizona - broken link)

Quote:
A national advocacy group is encouraging people to spend money in Arizona and counter a growing boycott over the state's new enforcement law.

As immigrant rights group, federal officials, and civil rights leaders told people to avoid Arizona companies and tourism, members of Numbers USA tried to convince their employers to give Arizona more business.

President Roy Beck said Numbers USA's nearly 1 million members represent a variety of political opinions and occupations.

I hate Arizona..tooModerator cut: language hot, but I love what they are doing with the place
I hope they keep up the good work and the rest of us follow suit.
I will not ban Arizona or support them any more than I usually do.
I did rent a Uhaul the other day though

It's rather stupid to think a boycott will work when the vast majority of American citizens support that what you want to boycott.

Right now there are two Arizona companies I can give my full support to by buying up their products: Petsmart and Cold Stone Creamery. This is a counter-boycott I can support for a long time!

I live in AZ and this year I have decided to spend my vacation money locally, instead of spending it in California!
