Boycott this, boycott that...

Boycott anything that is open on Holidays!

Seems to be how most people think.

But none of you have said we should boycott hospitals. They were open on holidays. They are always open on holidays. Think of all the doctors and nurses, forced to stay at at the hospital instead of being home with loved ones.

If your going to cry out "Evil to make people work on holidays!", then don't be a hypocrite. Shame them all equally.

Edit - Since everyone else is going crazy over this, figured I'd throw in some crazy of my own.

Guess what folks? Someone made a game about Sandy Hook!

[quote]An uproar of criticism has erupted following the release of a new online video game that allows players to re-enact the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre in Newtown, Conn.

Entitled “The Slaying Of Sandy Hook Elementary,” the game retraces the steps of gunman Adam Lanza, according to CBS Connecticut. It instructs players to “Shoot Mother” and “Get AR15 and clips,” before sending the silhouetted gunman into the school to open fire on teachers and first-graders, the Hartford Courant reported.

The game then switches to the school, where glass breaks as Lanza shoots his way into the school. Gamers are then given 10 minutes for Lanza to go into classrooms to shoot students and teachers. After the time is up, Lanza kills himself in the video game as a police arrive notice pops up on the screen, CBS Connecticut reported.[/quote]


I can see the point that the person was trying to make, but really... How can anyone think a game like this would be a good idea?

Idea to bring back some American Jobs...


Lets make a new law about how the American Flag can be used, or at least manufactured. I'm thinking something like this...

Any item that has a representation of the American Flag, or previous versions (Including the Confederate Flag and varients), on it, and is intended to be sold in the US, must be made in the US.

Simple ja?

Democrats would agree to it I'd bet, brings back some jobs at least. Convicing Republicans and their crazy cousins the Tea Party would take some effort, but I don't think it would be to hard to do so. We'd just need to word things the right way - Imply that allowing our symbol to be created in other countries serves to weaken us.

We'd just need a name for the law. I was thinking the Flag Act, but we've already got that... Actually, since that law is about the design of the flag, we could add this as a amendment to it. Or something.
