    I really enjoyed the Punisher series on Netflix even though I didn't agree with the underlying strawman messages at all.

    Which messages were those?

    Oh...open a can of worms, eh? LOL. Fair enough.

    Basically it portrayed gun control as anti-gun. It lacked the nuance in understanding the other side.

    But I enjoyed the series nonetheless. I hope there is a season 2.

    Oh I see what you mean. Yeah they did a piss poor job at framing that debate as I think they had originally intended to.

    Aside from that, I really enjoyed the Punisher as well. Marvel's best IMO. Season 2 is set to premier on December 12th.

    I buy where I can afford it and products in my price range. I was told once not to shop at Walmart....I only buy my hair dye there, $4 less than anywhere else and they always have my color. I do buy my veggies nearby....too many problems at vendors in other states or countries.

    In a word NO.

    And neither are my views of Corporations and Businesses or Actors or their views have any affect or even effect on anything I buy or watch on screen either cinema or TV.

    Corporations and Businesses are out to make money ......to earn a living.....O.K. and profits . and keep shareholders happy .

    Actors are just playing a part and do not subscribe to the role they are playing. And their personal views on any given subject is just that their personal views .

    They are just being paid for the job at hand.

    because I like or support a certain actor in a particular Movie does not in any way mean I support his/her political or religious views in any way.

    The same is with singers ,because I like certain singers does not mean I agree with their personal political or religious views

    I think its the height of stupidity to boycott this that or the other because you don`t agree with some issue you don`t agree with.

    If what you don`t agree with was analysed to the Nth degree ,you would probably be found to be a hypocrite.

    If I can get a product for the same (or reasonably close) price at two different places... I'll go with the one that is less of a festering social disgrace. I don't have the financial luxury of boycotting every company I disagree with and I think a lot of people are in that boat too.
