Saturday is Hobby Lobby Appreciation Day


Go buy something.

The plan: On Saturday, January 5th, all Americans who value freedom of religion and oppose the HHS Mandate’s unfair impositions upon religious individuals and corporate entities are called upon to show their support for Hobby Lobby by shopping either at their local retail Hobby Lobby store or online.

I much prefer Buycotts to Boycotts.

You know, you can be a conservative without religion but you can’t be a conservative and be hostile to religion. That is purely the purview of the left.

If you don’t have a store nearby, buy something here:

    I’m a bit of an ascetic at heart, and I’ve always told my wife that Hobby Lobby is just a front for child sex trafficking in a futile effort to keep her from buying more brik-a-brak for our home. But, this is a buycott I can and will support. Come Saturday, we’ll be the proud new owners of a few bagfuls of cutesy seasonal decorations from Hobby Lobby.

      In the back of most stores they have a few model airplanes and Estes Rockets… just sayin’.

        Thanks for the good tip! I can now stride into Hobby Lobby and walk straight to the back with a sense of purpose–no more shuffling my feet and avoiding eye contact with the other dudes in the store.

      How did I miss this? πŸ™‚ Yes, he tries to convince me that Hobby Lobby is evil but not today. I’m off with the AMEX to support my local Hobby Lobby.

    Most of you know how long I’ve been married. That said, Hobby Lobby in my town is always full of good looking women.

    Just sayin’.

    Hobby Lobby is not as well known as Chick-fil-a, and it is a “chick” store, haha. The stand they are taking is even bigger, facing fines that could well destroy the business. Yes, you men need to at least give your wives some extra money to spend and even drive her and drop her at the door so she doesn’t have to fight the traffic. Oh, and you men might be interested in the greeting card section, too…buy your wife a birthday, anniversary, and “just because” card and you’ll be ready for the year! It’s my favorite store on the planet (they sell fabric!) and I could give you a million reasons to go, but the most important one is LIFE…support the freedom to LIVE.

    Sonia. Very well said.

    My husband, a daily revo reader, saw my comment and thought I should add: “If they sold guns and ammo it would be a perfect date!” Agreed! But since they don’t, dear hubby, you can just pick me up a gift card for my next Hobby Lobby visit. πŸ˜‰

    I think it is hilarious to hear that other men act like this. When the missus makes my seven year old son and me go, we groan and complain. We go look at the model trains, airplanes and rockets. That takes ten minutes and we go find mom who is just getting started. We then follow her around the store like we are on the Bataan Death March.

    I guess I will be going on Saturday, however. Great business, I am just not part of their target demographic.

      Estes model rocket engines & igniters have many uses. All of which, are fun. (youtube is quite the zombie pockeylipse resource, just saying)

      For instance: if one were to extrapolate the quantinities used here and applie them as a warhead to the model rocket & launcher used here and combine the rocket payload with a fragile glass vessel full of flammable liquid, they would have a handy, short range, shoulder-launched molotov cocktail platform. One, in a zombie scenario, could also adapt such a platform for use with impact explosives like HMTD, but that would be illegal. Don’t do illegal things. They will get you into trouble.

      That is all.

        If one just wanted ignite their completely legal fireworks (depending upon your state – check with local law enforcement as laws vary) or Estes model rockets at a safe distance (wirelessly) they could use a setup like they find right here.
