Restaurant Kicks ALEC member Diageo to the Curb

Gotta love this local business!!  Kicks ALEC member Diageo to the Curb!!!

This local restaurant kicked ALEC Board Member Diageo to the curb – BECAUSE OF ALEC.

Would be nice if other businesses would follow – it would make a huge impact to the free market bottom line of Diageo.
This takes the concept of the “free-market” to a whole new level, baby.

This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase #DumpALEC!!!!

This local restaurant has chosen to NOT carry or serve any products supplied by Diageo – because Diageo is affiliated with ALEC.


We have fired Diageo and are discounting any left over items up to 50% off. We want them gone.
Say No To: Smirnoff, Guinness, Dom Pérignon, Johnnie Walker, Baileys, Tanqueray & All Diageo Products
Where is my favorite Scotch and Vodka at Aroma Thyme?
Sorry if we do not carry your favorite wine, beer or spirit brand at Aroma Thyme. We do stock over 200 craft beers, 300 wines and 250 spirits of mostly independents.
We feel we have a good reason for not supporting some of the most popular brands. In our most recent campaign we have eliminated all Diageo brands. Diageo is massive company that has a terrible reputation among other producers, suppliers and employees. There is enough business for everyone without being a bully.
The main reason that Diageo is no longer at Aroma Thyme–Diageo is a corporate board member of ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council). In a nutshell, these are the companies that write a good portion of our legislation

Any other retailers out there ballsy enough to step up and do the same?

Tell Reckitt Benckiser – #DumpALEC

An article that brings up MANY excellent points

1.  …Now WE THE PEOPLE are taking to the free market

The Free market is a summary term for an array of exchanges that take place in society. Each exchange is undertaken as a voluntary agreement between two people or between groups of people represented by agents.

and our actions will hopefully lead to a reductions in expectations from ALEC Corporate Profit Sector members on their use of our legislators…

2.  But if the companies didn’t want to publicly support ALEC’s preferred policies, why were they supporting ALEC in the first place?

3.  Most of us have never heard of Reckitt Benckiser, but this may be a time to re-introduce ourselves to this Profit Sector Member of the American Legislative Exchange council (ALEC).  We were introduced to them in this story published by CMD: Kids Eating Rat Poison Is an “Acceptable Risk” for ALEC
