I think I might be sold on this one, what do you think?

Dan Savage's summer blog on this is pretty convincing. The Russian treatment of LGBTQ people is pretty appalling.

Russia is the US's little brother sell 18% of all international arms

just under half of the US 39% share of the international weapons market

I think this is great.

The problem is that I don't have a problem with this. I've been boycotting vodka for years. And tequila for over 20 years. And scotch. And almost all rum. Although, I have boycotted that for almost a year. And gin for a year and a half. Bourbon and brandy I cook with. I haven't had a shot of Crown Royal in 6 years-maybe longer. I absolutely boycott whiskey every chance I get.

So, it's do-able. Count me in.

But, somehow............I'm not feeling the big challenge here.

Maybe I can boycott Lukoil?

Borscht (also borsch, bortsch, borstch, borsh, borshch; Ukrainian: борщ) is a soup of Ukrainian[1] origin that is popular in many Eastern and Central European countries. In most of these countries, it is made with beetroot as the main ingredient,[2][3] giving it a deep reddish-purple color. In some countries, tomato is used as the main ingredient, while beetroot acts as a secondary ingredient. Other, non-beet varieties also exist, such as the tomato paste-based orange borscht and green borscht (sorrel soup)[cita
