It's Cinco de Mayo ... Celebrate With An Arizona Buy-Cott!
Today not only marks the day Mexico recognizes a thwarted attack by France (as promoted and celebrated first in the United States by Corona Beer as a promotion to sell their product) ... today is the day independent American citizens can begin to show support for Arizona in its effort to localize Federal immigration law.
Wednesday, May 5, 2010 at 8:00am (any timezone) marks the official start to Buy Arizona, where people intentionally purchase goods and services from companies that claim their headquarters in Arizona in a "Buy-Cott" - a reversal to the time honored consumerism activity known as a boycott.
Ahhhhh, to purchase, as opposed to ignore the goods or services produced, from a company just feels more affirming and, well, AMERICAN! After all, directed consuming is so Capitalistic and un-Obama Administration.
It's Cinco de Mayo, so go out and celebrate by first purchasing an American flag from the American Flag & Pole Co. http://www.americanflagandpole.com/, then go online and pick up some protection in the form of a non-lethal deterrents from Taser International http://www.taser.com/pages/default.aspx, followed by digital identity theft protection software and services designed by Lifelock http://www.lifelock.com/, and finally ... go to dinner at PF Changs http://www.pfchangs.com ... OK, so this food selection does not contain tortillas or salsa but it is time for a new tradition.
We, at MAXINE, believe the main activity for Cinco de Mayo, and beyond, is to begin the tradition of American self-reliance beginning with the show of support of a State that wishes to take control of its destiny in the service to its citizens over the actions (in this case, inaction) of the Federal Government.
BUY ARIZONA - Support Arizona based corporations, local businesses, on-line retailers, and tourism.
The following list is just a sampling of the great companies you can support directly with consumerism ... and there is something for everyone - this IS America. PLEASE SHARE!!
Be sure to check back at the folloing website regularly ... more companies will be added as soon as they are identified! http://www.socaltaxrevoltcoalition.org
