Some do’s and don’ts for valentine gift giving

When it comes to picking the perfect gift for your sweetie, Valentine's Day is always tough for guys and girls.  But thanks to the animal rights activists we have a handy lists of dos and don’ts this year to help guide your purchases. 

If you buy anything supporting these companies and individuals, you are supporting an anti-agriculture agenda and working to put farmers out of business. 

Hopefully you haven’t been living under a rock and know by now that you shouldn’t buy [yellow tail] wine for your valentine. They’ve pledged $100,000 to the HSUS and don’t care that farmers and ranchers don’t like it.

Times are tough and instead of a romantic candle light dinner maybe you were planning on sharing a Sonic Brown Bag Special with your sweetie. Don’t do it. Sonic recently caved to the HSUS and will be serving cage free eggs and using pork products that come from farms that don’t use gestation crates.

Sorry, but no Beatles albums for your honey. Sir Paul is promoting Meatless Monday. So that knocks out his solo stuff too.

A few more things you shouldn’t bring home to your valentine:
  • No Carrie Underwood--she also gave $100,000 to the HSUS
  • No Willie Nelson--he has spoken out in support of feral horses
  • No movies with Alec Baldwin--he narrates some of the HSUS videos
  • No Dave Matthews Band--Dave is against corporate hog farming
  • No Victoria Principal Cosmetics
  • No Brittney Spears Cds--as if you would buy those anyway
There are a ton of individuals and corporations under attack by animal activist groups. I encourage you to show some solidarity for others under attack.

Buy a season of 24: Keifer Sutherland is under attack for owning the cattle he got scammed out of

If you need some tunes, consider Kelis the R&B singer who told PETA off last month. Even if you don’t like here music, she’s a celebrity worthy of supporting.  Maybe the Zac Brown Band in more your style.  They got a bucket of tofu from PETA as a protest against their chicken fried song.  So eat some fried chicken too.

Do skip the nice dinner in favor of supporting some of the food corporations under attack
  • Domino’s Pizza
  • IHOP
  • Steak and Shake
  • Jack in the Box
  • Kroger
  • Kentucky Fried Chicken
  • McDonald’s
  • Petsmart
  • Brookstone
  • Lowes
