Just making a grandiose pronouncement, for no obvious reason.

Today I am starting a spreadsheet of companies I really should not frequent.

I am going to keep a list of companies I would prefer to not do business with, I popped on Geico and Dairy Queen, and I will be adding them as I think of them. Probably review it every couple of months and when I have something to add.

I don't plan on punishing myself, if Geico was so much cheaper or better I would do business with them. But going forward, I am going to actively seek other options to companies that hate me. No more Heinz relish, but that's been a while(I don't like Ketchup fortunately from what I understand)

Fortunately I have an impact on a lot of kids activities, so I hope I can get them used to brands that don't support screwing the country. Of course I work with charities, so there are a lot of donations, and I am not turning away free stuff

But for whatever marginal good it does, I am going to do my bit.
