    meh, still buying one of the new YETI Coral 35's for the GF. Honestly they have every right to pull from supporting the NRA, I don't blame them either.

    Political correctness is ruining this country. Look at the over reaction of Starbucks. But yet Target allows men to use the womens restroom.

    Why does this crappie come up? Pretty soon no one will buy from anyone because it conflicts with someone's values.

    While I agree with you to a point, many folks are fed up with small groups using questionable tactics to politically attack groups they don't agree with. Failing that, they then target companies that may be affiliated with any of these groups. I think it is going to take the general public speaking with their money to ever get this to stop.

    Just to be clear, I would rather companies/unions/etc. didn't get political at all. It just never seemed to make good sense to alienate half your customer base. If you do go that route, however, make sure that you know who your customer really is.

    Starbucks is just reaping what its sowed, they've supported these far left groups for years and now they are eating their own. I love it.

    What about the airline who dropped the NRA discount program and lost government dollars. I don't care about them dropping the NRA program, but why is the government handing out money because you give a discount to a special group.

    Where this boycotting really gets interesting is with publicly traded companies. A company caving to demands from either side has a responsibility to their hareholders to make money, regardless of "personal beliefs". Is Starbucks breaking the law? Or attempting to uphold it? Rhetorical question.

    On the flip side... anyone with a 401k, or any type of investment for that matter, probably have a vested interest in that which they are "boycotting".

    The answer seems clear. Just don't bring politics into the marketplace in this "fashion". But I digress. I'd put the percentage of people capable of understanding this to be in the single digits. Nobody really wins when both sides cheat, regardless of the final score. In the long run, everybody loses. Very unfortunate for this great country.

    It was a tax break given to them by the state of GA. for having their headquarters in Atlanta. Delta is a large employer in Atlanta.

    I can’t agree with you more!!! The minority groups ruin the big picture for everyone. Even those who may support some of their political agenda. This, to me, is the clear definition of anarchy.

    I just sent this to yeti. "Good day. I am a NRA Lifetime Patriot member. I, along with many of my associates will no longer be purchasing your products! Your company owe it's fortune to NRA members! You do not even have the fortitude to explain why you distance yourself from us? I will be spending my monies on OTHER products than yours!!! GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR CHOICES!"
