I certainly agree that avoiding as many of the borg cogs as possible is a good idea. Obviously there are a great many of them, and we both know the list you put out was not remotely exhaustive.
But what I am looking for is a list of not leaners, but identifiable and beyond doubt anti-conservative acting companies, some stuff I have read about various companies, you have to look pretty hard to find a problem, so I tend not to trust these lists, that's why I am looking to keep my own and a quick hit on reasons.
For instance one I have not put on yet is GE, there's a winner.
Cunningham Security? May be a problem but means nothing to me with no context.
Pepsico funded the million mom march? I do not really care to go that far that if a company advertises at an event I do not like, I react.
Not say a company pulls their advertising from Fox and switches it to MSNBC -- there's a winner. Pulling from FOX? Fine - you want to go unpolitical I can respect that -- moving hard left -- OK, you're on my list
I would rather it not get too long, as it becomes meaningless. But there are normal companies that have a pattern of being bad actors, and that have not merely made actions I disagree with but have a pattern of doing such
