holiday shopping list

where to shop this year? try patronizing the businesses in bold on this list, which donated the majority of their money to democrats, and avoiding the others, which dontated the majority of their money to republicans.

i will even pledge not to eat at waffle house on my trip to florida this weekend. if you know me at all, you’ll know what a major sacrifice this is.

i can’t vouch for the veracity of this emailed list, so if you have any updates or corrections, let me know!
