I am beginning to compile an ongoing list of businesses that advertise during the showtimes of LARD Larson,and some of them even have paid LARD to be the voice of the advertisement. The list will perodically be updated. Regardless of how anyone may feel about the effectiveness of boycotts,I still feel they are potentially effective ESPECIALLY if you CONTACT the business and TELL them SPECIFICALLY WHY you will NO longer patronize them in ANY way.
Actually,CONTACTING them in some way(s) and TELLING them IS the best and ONLY REAL way TO have any chance of any effectiveness.
And before anyone chimes in about how unimportant LARD is to pay attention to,etc,be aware that he was recently given a PERSONAL invitation to The White House Xmas party and also has had the likes of Cheney,Rice,Ridge,Powell,Rumsfeld,and numerous other similar and related ilk on his program,so he is apparently getting somewhere,along with getting a weeknights national program starting a few months ago.
I realize that some,or many of these places are places that many of you do not go to in the first place,
and probaly for good and understandable reasons,too. But just in case there are some places some you do go to,and / or places that you know of that someone else DOES go to,then here it is to be made available to whoever:
Below is the list,so far.

M S Glass
George Moreland Plumbing
El Gaucho (restaurant)
