Threaten Burger King with boycott

I've recently posted on BK's inversion to avoid its patriotic responsibility. Now see this petition from the Other 98%:

We're The Other 98%, and we started a petition to the Burger King board of directors which says: "Burger King benefits enormously from being an American company and should pay its fair share of taxes here in America. Don't even attempt this whopper tax dodge or we will boycott Burger King."

Burger King is an American company worth more than $9 billion. They're in talks to buy Tim Horton's Inc., Canada's largest coffee-shop chain. Burger King's sinister plan is to relocate their corporate headquarters to Ontario, Canada thereby dodging their American taxes in a calculated move called "inversion." Burger King's largest shareholder, a private equity firm called 3G Capital, will win and the American people will lose. Again. Unless we stop them.

Click here to add your name to this petition, and then pass it along to your friends.

Thank you, The Other 98%
