I don't want to stand in the lines either. I'd rather sit by myself in a dank, smelly room singing celebrations of my moral superiority to an anonymous community united by hatred.

I'd rather denounce ordinary people of every ethnicity and religion in Hitlerian terms for engaging in fairly innocuous activities, singling out the odious xians for my special disdain.

One day after the revolution, all holidays and traditions will canonize my moral and intellectual prowess. Instead of shopping there will be ritual torture, degradation, rape and humiliation of my many, many enemies.

I am better!

I saw your tips for BND, but there was nothing on there about fair trade. What's wrong with buying gifts online from a fair trade business or non-profit? Would you consider that "unethical"?

I'm one of the people who haven't really wanted to know about poor working conditions and other negatives involved in making my goods. I am beginning to wake up and have a desire to know- at least a little bit.

I have thought of 3 goals:

Buy for equality- only buy from "equalitarian" companies with living wages, less from hierarchical companies with bad wages and conditions. How do I find the best companies?

Vote for equality- vote for and support politician who pledge to raise taxes on the wealthy

Donate for equality- donate 10% of my disposable income, in order to do my part to spread the wealth.

Buy from small business not more than 10-20 employees without branches!

Do not vote for republicans and democrats nominate 99.9% candidates and support them

Fire the Kangroo congress and protest against war companies impeach congressman and shut dowm war companies and fine them all they have made

Prosecute the criminals

If no prosecution we will not have a new day!

Prosecution of criminals means materialization of 99.9% power. No constructive action no change!

The more things change the more the stay the same sometimes so we demand real change no cosmetic change!

So, you think taking more from one than another is equality? How exactly does that work? What you have provided is the very definition of inequality!

How about this: Instead of one class picking up the tab for everybody else, people from every class pay their "fair share"? Instead of 2% of the population paying 90% of the taxes, how EVERYBODY pays 15% of what they make. Now, THAT would be equality!

Of course, that would mean the "rich" would still be "rich" and the "poor" would have to contribute to the society that they currently leach off of. We can't possibly have that, now, can we?

You people are so deluded it's actually kinda sad.
