Terror Free Investing

For a long time, the left has tried to use divestiture as a tool against Israel and other disfavored interests.

Now, Frank Gaffney proposes an antiterrorism initiative that's both financially and morally sound: Terror free investing.

I thought conservatives like free markets? Who would create the blacklist? Even Cheney as CEO of Haliburton was violating US sanctions by selling to Iraq.

Earthboy,

Free markets refers to markets berift of government interference, or as little as possible. What citizens do within that context does not negate the context whatsoever. In fact, it's a perfectly appropriate action for consumers to band together to affect change or to make a statement. If someone wants to make a list of companies engaged in activity that someone finds objectionable, those who agree are thus informed and will act accordingly. For example, if Haliburton is such a thorn in your side, you could mount an effort for which others might agree and align themselves. Haliburton might actually care.
