    Companies to watch out for!

    President Reagan defeated the Soviet Union in the cold war with an all out economic war against them, and by denying them access to new technologies from the west. This is an interesting article about companies who are not helping out with our current war, in the interest of profit. I am all for the free market, but in certain situations, companies need to steer clear of supporting nations who are our enemies, if not by government restrictions, then by their own good judgement.

    The company I work for sells products to several of the companies listed on the first page of the article. So, is it more patriotic to quit my job, or to keep working and continue the American way of life?

    Yeah, and I have a Mastercard too. That doesn't mean that their choices in this matter have to go unnoticed.

    That's an interesting find CyclonePride.

    The oil doesn't surprise me in the least. Neither doesn Mastercard I guess. Some of the tech companies like Siemens does however. They're a large business with great diversity. But i thought alot of tech industries were prohibited from business in iran in particular.
