BuyBlue Off to Successful Start

Our friends at BuyBlue report that they're getting a lot of press

This week we have been fortunate enough to get write-ups in memepool , Mother Jones , linkfilter as well as numerous sites throughout the blogosphere.  However, today marks a momentous occasion, because we got front page coverage in the Cleveland Plain Dealer...Also - be on the lookout for an article in the Dallas Morning News early next week.
Wal-Mart Vice President Ray Bracy confirmed that the chain makes 80 percent of its political contributions to Republicans, as noted on the site. The donations help Wal-Mart make its case for free enterprise to the U.S. government, he says.

"We have seen certain groups suggest that people not shop at Wal-Mart," Bracy says, "and that doesn't keep customers away."

I'd read that as Mr. Bracy basically stating that we can't make a difference, even if we try.  I think we owe it to ourselves to prove him wrong.  We'll see who is right when the officers at Wal-Mart have to answer for their sales numbers after the Christmas shopping season.

I'd encourage all of you to do everything in your power to get the word out about and specifically to target Wal-Mart this holiday season.  Don't buy a single thing from them if you occasionally shop there and please do make an effort to convince everyone you know to do the same.
