Do you support those who don't support you?
We live in a very complex world, and it's very difficult to keep track of all the political winds. However, occasionally some information comes to light that allows people of conscience to make informed decisions.
I've recently discovered (courtesy of the Captain) that the company Intuit is no friend of Liberty. Intuit Payment Solutions is selectively dropping some federally licensed firearms dealers from being able to process credit card purchases. Details Here. As tax season is almost upon us, understand that Intuit owns Quicken, QuickBooks, and Turbo Tax.
Also, Groupon recently made it very clear that they are hostile to our basic human right of self-defense. Personally, I always thought that the Groupon business model was very bad – and I've known of many businesses that have been hurt by their dealings with them. I guess this is just another reason for any/all good people to end any association they have with this company.
I'm all for freedom – and I'm all for a company deciding to proclaim that it has no regard for the rights or lives of its customers. I also support the freedom of moral people doing whatever they can to refuse to support such companies.
