I have enjoyed chronicling the many not too big to fail boycotts which have taken place in the past 18 months that I’ve been blogging, including (but not limited to):
- California, Utah, and Mormons in general because of Prop 8
- Connecticut because of Joe Lieberman
- The Susan G. Komen Foundation because Hadassah is married to Joe
- Work, on account of Day Without A Gay
- The entire economy, on account of Obama
- Glenn Beck, on account of him being Glenn Beck
- The Democratic National Committee because of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell
- Chris Christie, on account of he says it like it is
- The Inauguration of Obama because law professors are used to getting their way
So, while everyone got all excited about the boycott of Arizona because of S.B. 1070, I yawned.
Turns out I was right, once again: Arizona Hotels Thriving Despite Boycotts Over Immigration Law:
Arizona’s tourism industry has a target on its back, but the widespread boycotts over the state’s immigration law might not be hitting the mark.
Recent data compiled by a market research group show hotel bookings across the state — as well as in tourism hot spots Phoenix and Scottsdale — have been on the rise the past two months.
The numbers could dispel warnings from local officials that Arizona stands to lose a fortune and dampen the chances that cities and organizations will be able to compel the state to reverse its immigration law by choking its economy with a sanctions-style business boycott.
I almost forgot, how is that Whole Foods boycott going?
While you are at it, the economy is not so good in Rhode Island. Boycott us, please, we need the business.DONATE
