DACA would have an enormous effect. They bring every DNA ounce of DNA related to them when they get the right to be here, they end up with welfare, foodstamps, free school lunches, free medical, free phones, free clothes, subsidized rent and  pop out future socialist next generation demo voters on the dole


Nothing would change with DACA.  You would not notice any difference from now.  I don't believe all of those people are on the Wellfare Dole and are draining the economy as so many here seem to thing.  DACA is a minor thing.

If we boycotted everybody that PO'd us, it would include half the companies in the country, including the NFL, NBA AND MLB.

We shop, occasionally, at a local market.  They rip us off at every opportunity with their high prices, because the nearest store like there's is 20 miles away---that, and they know we are retired folks and, therefore, RICH!  (Yeah, right!)

So the answer is, I order on line from Amazon, those things we need to buy.  I also shop prices in several other places and buy where the price is lowest.  Sometimes that includes Walmart--sometimes Macy's, Penney's, etc.

As much as I hate what the owner of Amazon is doing, I can't stop buying things.  After all, I don't like the owner of Apple, either--or Bill Gates, but it didn't stop me from buying a smart phone.

I don't use amazon anymore.
I ordered one bag of beans (my experience) and got three shipments  (fancy rare beans that you eat). (Cranberry beans).
I gave then my credit card number and they charged it to my wife's credit card. She thought that I was pulling a fast one..

I also asked them where my mem card was and this bean caper and they didn't even answer me..

The Bezos Agenda represents a clear and present threat to our Conservative Agenda.  In simpler terms, Bezos is the enemy.  It would follow that anything we do to support Bezos will support the enemy.

So you don't buy at the store that gives you the most for your money?  That is very interesting................

I'm not a hard case.  I would never be deliberately offensive to one of our members. 

I try as hard as I can not to buy from a store that supports my enemies.  I, however, am blessed by being surrounded by all kinds of stores that regularly compete for my business.  But, I am also a realist and reality can often be more compelling than idealism.

On the other hand, I think liberalism/socialism/communism represent an existential threat to me and my fellow conservatives, and thus, whenever I can and wherever I can, I fight them with any means possible.

Let's say people did boycott Amazon what would happen? Bezos wouldn't be hurt. He simply would shed workers and not open these huge shipping warehouses as he has been doing employing thousands at each location. There's no doubt that there is a host of other things he could do to insulate himself personally that I can't possibly think of.

But the real issue is can you get others to follow a boycott especially at this time of year when prices count, money is short and people don't have time to shop?


His pockets run very deep so it's almost impossible to hurt him personally. Hard to see how one can rally large enough numbers to hurt Bezos directly.

My grandmother used to say, "don't cut off your nose to spite your face". No explanation needed.

Since most here don't work for Bezos we won't be doing that; but some of us do shop on Amazon. Cheesy
