Since that term is one that you insist on using over and over, I find THAT very humorous.

And accusing of me of being a racist because I chose to exercise my right to assemble and protest is disgusting.

I have a name for you....

I'll be pretty upset if they show up at my work place trying smear our reputation and making us lose our customers. I didn't vote for Obama, and won't vote in 2012 either, but these teabaggers are out of line hurting people like this.
Hahahahaha..........now boycotting is bad. For years, to the libs, it was great.

And just so you know, a boycott means they WON'T be coming into your place of business.

Crying about taxes when Obama just signed the biggest tax cut in history shows how dumb these people are.
And thinking that taxes won't go up with all that Obama is signing shows how dumb you are.

Liberals really do hate it when people exercise their right to free speech and to assemble.

I couldn't care less what it was like for the libs.

The letter they sent out talked about a little more than boycotts. Their intention was to smear the companies whose owners donated money to Dems, and that means they are GOING AFTER private business. It is nothing short of a threat.

I've read about his tax policies and can state with considerable confidence that we won't see increased taxes on the middle class. Have you read his tax policies?
