LOMA Dollars

As the economic slowdown continues, selective buying by LOMAs will have an important impact. In the last election cycle, an activist website called “buyblue” put together a list of favorability ratings for businesses, and encouraged their supporters to do business with the higher rated companies.

They have since taken down their list, but it was saved by a pro-McCain website. As the companies with the highest “buy blue” rating have chosen sides in the political struggle, I think it is important to remind them that business is not an entitlement program. If they want conservative customers, they need to earn their business.

Here is the list. Remember, the higher the rating, the more favorable to liberal causes they are.

LOMA Says: “Whenever Possible – – Shop Accordingly.”
