    Can lefty companies pick and choose their buyers, as if the gay cake controversy were applicable only to conservatives?

    Yep, they're doing it and getting away with it as a good public relations move in the press.

    In a Bloomberg piece under the unintentionally ironic header of "Good Business," Patagonia is refusing to license the vests it sells to oil companies, mining companies, religious groups, "politically affiliated" (read: conservative) organizations, and big wicked banks.

    Late last year, Patagonia updated its mission statement, saying, "We're in business to save our home planet."

    I don't believe I've ever bought their products, but they have competitors. For example, The North Face and its corporate sibling Timberland.

    I never heard of a company named Patagonia, but I'm guessing their products cost twice as much as their competitors' products.

    Those groups probably didn't buy their stuff anyways.

    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    They are a privately held company who has the right to ruin their business with bad choices.

    As a private individual, I will take a certain glee when their business model causes them to fail.

    Off my list of patronage. Good riddance! The list is long and growing. No loss at all.

    They have a smattering of brick and mortar stores. Looks like they sell from mostly Dicks and Active Endeavors store locations.

    Only thing I see online that they sell that rig companies would like might be their wet suits. Beyond that, it's mostly yuppy crap.
