I am really baffled by the boikot call !

Ex-prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad said Malaysians “will not die if they do not use the US goods” and urged those working for US companies such as fast-food giant McDonalds to quit their jobs.

“I hope Starbucks and McDonald’s employees will stop working there,” he told a crowd of 500 people who held a noisy protest outside the National Mosque after Friday prayers.

as was reported in Malaysiakini :

TDM ask us to resign from starbucks or McD, ok sure we can do it, but can he find jobs for us ??????
Easy for him to say, his children all married and are rich blokes, dont  have to work .
Boikot coke or colgate ,resign from Citibank, companies goes bust, who suffers, the malaysian workers. As it is right now, NO ONE can afford to go without a job.
Like they say, CAKAP TAK SERUPA BIKIN. Much as i respect him, and as much as my heart bleed for our brothers and sisters in Gaza, there are better ways of going about it.

I totally agree with Shanghai fish when he said-

For crying out loud and for God’s sake, if you want to start anything, you can start by bringing back all those hundreds of our students studying in the US first ! Then burn all your Levi’s and Hush-Puppies products. Then cut yourself off of all internet services provided by the US, give a miss to Hollywood programs aired on the telly and cinemas, blow-up all KFC’s and McDonalds out-lets, forget holidays and medical treatment visits to America and burn all fancy DMG’s and Mustangs parked in your garage, cut your “American Express” cards !

Yeah BRING BACK ALL OUR STUDENTs FROM USA. This WILL immediately stop the flow of millions and millions of our money. and we see most of the BN cronies would end up with burnt cars in their garages.
Our politicians should lead the way, Throw all their guccis, CK and what nots, dig a big hole right in the centre of kl and burn all their american stuff in unison. I bet you after all this is done, their closets will be 3/4 empty la . That would be the day!
As they say, Leadership by example, (???)
