Johnson and Johnson Supports ALEC

ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council, where corporations exchange money for votes lobbying in our legislatures.  They have been in the news lately, for the "defend your ground laws" and the rush to dis-enfranchise millions of American voters.
Right Wing Watch:
 ALEC's agenda includes rolling back civil rights, challenging government restrictions on polluters, infringing on workers’ rights, limiting government regulations of commerce, privatizing public services, and representing the interests of the corporations that make up its supporters.

Some corporations like Coke, Pepsi, the Gates Foundation, Blue Cross/ Blue shield and 7 other corporations have quit ALEC in the last week.  But Johnson and Johnson is a member of Alec and so far they are staying put. ALEC is really a sweetheart deal for Johnson and Johnson.  ALEC creates problems that Johnson and Johnson also offers solutions for. 

Is pollution in your water causing your hair to fall out?  Try Rogaine!
Emissions from a local factory giving you a headache?  Try Tylenol
Do "Stand your ground laws" leave a bad taste in your mouth? Try Listerine
Can't see how your going to pay all your bills on minimum wage salary?  Try Visine
Sick to your stomach because you have to spend money to get a voter's ID card to vote?  Try Rolaids
After an ALEC session in your local legislature everyone in your community will need; KY Jelly

We would all live a Carefree life if Johnson and Johnson left ALEC and it would be great if Johnson and Johnson Stayfree 'd of ALEC.  Perhaps we could boycott Johnson and Johnsons Splenda, err splendid products.
