    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.

    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?

    No need for a boycott here. My family hasn't owned a Ford since my grandparents had a Mustand back in the 60s.

    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.
