What Kind Of Funny Is This? Ohhh... THAT Kind Of Funny!
Karl Childers explains it all

Just an interesting commentary on how Western Civilization is slouching towards Gomorrah. Would it suffice to say that I'm not surprised the Chubb and Dickstein are on the list? I mean.... that only makes sense.

From WorldNetDaily, and the original from BackdoorConquistador.com;

I think a shorter list would be who doesn't have "gay friendly" policies.

Ditto what Jesusfreak84 said. I don't know how to avoid all those companies all the time.

No way to avoid them all.

Got room in that cave for one more?

you'll wind up having to get your laser printer from Acer, as HP & Lexmark are both on the list. You'll have to get your next OS from distrowatch, and your next (AMD powered) PC from cyberpowerpc.com, insure your Honda with Farm Bureau, and put it on your Discover card while drinking RC Cola.
