Boycott Dick's Sporting Goods
« on: February 17, 2013, 11:00:32 AM »
I think so.

It's time to borrow a page from the left and withdraw support of businesses that support a socialist regime over the US constitution.

If I ever shopped there, I wouldn't again. I think MILLIONS will make that choice. THIS is the sort of news item I was talking about for a newsletter to distribute in your local area. I doubt the masses whho get their news from the MSM know anything about this.

I think I may work on a flyer this evening to put on some local bulletin boards.

It's happening. I think conservatives, (including myself), are realizing that a live and let live attitude is a losing proposition.
We have to engage and fight........even though it goes against our core beliefs.

Especially with this one.  It's just too important of a topic.  I spend a lot of time and money at Dick's, but not anymore.  This is like a breakup for me.

I'm not sure a boycott is needed. The free market should end up killing them..

A boycott may help move that process much faster.

Here's how I was thinking about it: we all saw what a somewhat united statement is made with Chick-Fil-A last year.  With Dick's, we don't even need anywhere that turnout.  Just a small percentage of Dick's customers of the Chick-Fil-A customers last year decide to stop shopping at Dick's, they will really feel it.  Just a modest tweak will really get their attention I think.

I am curious as to where Dicks has their shops. We have one here near the mall. If they are in more rural states they are shooting themselves in the left foot...

Dick's sporting goods didn't need another strike against them in my area.  Over priced for starters.

There's one just south of Toledo off I-75, and this place will probably wind up seriously hurting. That entire area is riddled with sportsmen and home-protection gun-buyers. On the other hand the Toledo Blade will probably name them Responsible Business of the Year.

Cabela's in Dundee, Michigan should probably do very well, taking up the slack.

No. It wouldn't be an organized boycott with picket signs and stuff. Just making the decision not to shop there, is the free market at work. :smile:

We've got several around here. I don't shop there much because they are a ripoff, but they do have an awesome tackle section.
