Opening Arguments


Now we know for sure this Red State/Blue State crap has gone too far:

Are you worried that at some point in your day, you might unknowingly make a personal decision untainted by any political considerations whatsoever? Afraid that a single penny of your hard-earned money* might go toward someone who doesn’t share your views of the world?

Enter Matthew Colbert, a former campaign and Hill staffer, who has built a new app for smartphones that allows users to scan the barcode of products in the grocery store and immediately find out what political party the company and its employees support…

The app, based on data from Center for Responsive Politics, the Sunlight Foundation and the Institute for State Money in Politics, is the first rollout from Colbert’s new company, “Spend consciously.” It’s [sic] tagline: “Wouldn’t it be great if you could spend how you believed?”
I can't even leave politics at the door when Im grocery shopping? I'm, supposed too "spend how I believe"? Good lord. I was once on a nonprofit board with a very liberal woman who didn't want us to order Pizza Hut for our lunch meetings because, you know, right-wing nut owned it. And I guess I'm supposed to avoid Ben & Jerry's ice cream because, yow know, lefty moonbats.
What a joyless, insufferable person (left or right) anybody who uses this app is.
