    if you want to target actual American products, you'll have to be more specific because there isnt much out there. Perhaps US manufactured automobiles?

    There is a lot out there. Not all are international but plenty are.

    Good point. They should go all out and not tour until President Trump is out of office.
    That will show him.

    This would explain why no new shows were announced.
    As much as I support the effort, if they come do another Canadian tour I'm going to see a few shows.

    Just wondering: if Pearl Jam played a show in your country this year would you boycott them since they are an American product? (Not trying to be a dick)

    Yeah, only saw them 3 times and 2 of those were bad, so I wouldn't be bothered going to see them again anyway.
    Your argument just went out the door when saying 66% of the Pearl Jam shows you seen were bad.

    um, how is boycotting american goods going to do any harm to trump? if you think he gives a sweet fuck about the economy, you are sadly mistaken.

    In short the "Jobs for America" thing means he wants to take all the tech and pharma jobs out of Europe and put them in the rust belt. No economist thinks this is going to work.
    If he did remove all of these well established industries in Europe by heavily taxing them, the place would fall apart and there would have to be some retaliation/repercussion for these actions in the form of heavily taxing US goods or some other means. Leave well enough alone.
    he's an idiot for sure. but boycotting american industries hurts the american worker, it doesn't hurt or stop trump. in my opinion, you are barking up the wrong tree here. and I'm canadian.

    It may make him realise that things can work both ways - trade relations etc are beneficial to all involved and that there is definitely no quick fix (or maybe no fix at all) to the jobs that have been lost in America to industries moving to cheaper countries.

    I have zero confidence that trump will be made to see anything he doesn't want to see. especially where it concerns money that isn't his. he has stiffed contractors, employees, without a care in the world. he started a freaking university whose sole purpose was to defraud its students.

    he is in this for power and money and his petty little insecurities.

    I understand that, was more responding to the question about if I would boycott the band.

    I support a boycott, but admittedly I have already broken it. I'm a shitty person, not very good at practicing what I preach.

    Unfortunately, you are probably right but protest is possibly the only way to get things going and rare awareness. He's only a week into his term and look at the mess already!

    Yes, all fast food trash holes should be boycotted and put on a ban list.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Yes, you're right, it's stupid to protest against a racist, sexist, climate change denier who could very well destroy the world.

    I think the paper I use is non American.
    Things work both ways - if he kills industry in Europe, there will have to be repurcussions. Thank god he's got someone sensible in the agriculture job anyway - an industry worth 150 billion.

    Ugh, why is that not surprising? And how did his little rain prayer go? Apparently his god gave him the finger, because the drought continued. :lol:

    stay focused on an Uber boycott. It will hurt Trump.

    Nice rgambs. I agree, as always with you.

    It makes as much sense as saying Hillary won more votes but isn't POTUS.

    As hard as it sounds, please stand up to this bullying by the US president- shop local, buy local, try only buy things made outside of the US

    So you're cancelling your 10c membership?

    I'm really thinking that most people in the US have already unconsciously boycotted products made in the US, since almost everything we buy is made in China...

    Stop embarrassing yourself, Americans are friendly and cool people, I don't want to boycott them.
    Yes, I love Donald Trump and his racism. It's very friendly.
    "Americans are cool and friendly people" What a huge generalisation.

    This is not a 'friendly and cool people' issue. I have nothing against Americans themselves, just against their leader who is all set on spreading hatred, fear and economic ruin throughout the world. I'm not embarrassed at all. Educate yourself - it sounds like you have had your head in the sand for the last week!
    You can boycott all you want, but what do you think of the possibility that Europe will start following in the same trace, we already have Brexit and England is talking about taking back control over their boarders.

    What really makes no sense is why you paid to be a Ten Club member if you aren't that into the band??? You can't post here without the membership so what was your motive for joining the fan club? Do you post in the other forums here or is your sole purpose for joining so you can post in AMT to dis the US and Pearl Jam?

    people can be fans and not like the live show. I don't agree with the OP's suggestion about boycotting, but stop focusing on the show comment. it doesn't lessen the OP's credibility. that's ridiculous.
