Come on now Brian, what are you saying that I would actually consider buying a Ford! Yuk......

I agree. The operative words of course being "Give me".

Thanks for the list, JGrubbs! I'll start with Ford!
I have boycotted Ford all my life. Just not on purpose. I've had three Chevys and two Dodges. Boycotts do no good whatsoever unless somebody tells somebody with the authority to do something about it.
Fords, I can honestly say my family owns none of those, we own two Japanese cars and a German Car. Not on purpose, My car is a Subaru, and my dad's got a Honda and an Audi. My dad has fought all his life against Ford.
Ditto on "boycotting" Ford all along. Granny~a Chevy gal
Fresh Oil Required Daily
How about boycotting the SBC too? "The BFA case is one of the largest affinity fraud cases in U. S. history."
How about all the others on this list?
No boycott is going to accomplish anything in this, but I think a more relevant question about this required "diversity" training "to promote the acceptance of homosexuality." Are they diverse enough to require that, while denying diversity if someone's beliefs contradict such a requirement? IOW, which diversity is the right one and which are they anti-diverse about?
I don't plan to buy a new car so I really can't boycott Ford,
I boycott Fords anyway
HOLDEN ALL THE RECORDS!!!
No need for a boycott here. My family hasn't owned a Ford since my grandparents had a Mustand back in the 60s.
Ford Boycott Suspended Until December 1, 2005 per the website - www.boycottford.com/suspended.asp .
Either the AFA are a bunch of suckers or else their boycott wasn't making much of a difference and they needed a way to take the high ground and save face. Boycotts are useless unless you are willing to stand your ground until you get what you want.
