"Forget Black Friday- Buy Nothing"
Remember Not One Damn Dime Day? That was the proposal by the DUmmies to protest Bush's re-election in 2004 by not spending One Damn Dime on inauguration day in an effort to make a huge dent in the economy. That sure worked out well...NOT! Well, the DUmmies are back again with another version of Not One Damn Dime Day. It is Buy Nothing Day as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Forget Black Friday- Buy Nothing." This is supposed to be a 24 hour moratorium on buying anything on Black Friday to protest what I'm not sure. However, it is FUn to watch DUmmies come up with yet another of their utterly useless schemes. So let us now watch the DUmmies achieve absolutely NOTHING in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that Black Friday is when Jehovah's Witnesses prepare their turkey dinners for their non-Thanksgiving non-celebration, is in the [brackets]:
Forget Black Friday- Buy Nothing
[Not One Damn Dime Day.]
A 24 hour moratorium on consumer spending
[Which should be as successful as Not One Damn Dime Day in bringing down our EVIL capitalist economy.]
That's my plan.... But I am a retailer. Fortunately, I don't give a shit about tomorrow. F*ck the gift-buyers.
[They will shun your lemonade stand, DUmmie TomInTib.]
why would you want to go a wade into a consumer frenzy anyways, stay home, eat leftover turkey and play video games in your boxer's.
[Post useless schemes in DUmmieland.]
I have to buy cat food but nothing else, I promise!
[No turkey leftovers for your cat?]
That's easy I'm always broke and have no plastic.
[Just don't be tempted to spend that dime you find under the bridge.]
We ain't buying nothing tomorrow but I expect to be as succesful as any other boycott I have particiated in
[Which means you will achieve exactly ZERO.]
Tomorrow is the first day in quite a few that I don't have to do anything--no school, no work, nothing. I have a date with my pajamas, my fireplace, leftovers, and the "Cold Case" marathon on TNT. I have no other plans. There isn't anything I want that I am willing to stand in line and fight the masses for.
[Speaking of which...are there any other TV marathons today? Perhaps a South Park marathon?]
Great, more useless slacktivism.....The number of Internet-advertised "protests" that involve sitting on your ass is staggering.
But... if millions did and kept it going... it would be noticeable. And if that came with demonstrations it woudl really make an impact
[Yeah. The prelude to the storming of the Bastille.]
If millions did it, nothing would happen.
[And since only dozens will do it, even less will happen.]
Study the history of social movements...
[I've already studied Not One Damn Dime Day.]
Gandhi started with consumer strikes... and other strikes... it took a lifetime but last time I checked India is no longer a british colony. Or did I miss something.
[So we should all march to the sea wearing white diapers and bathrobes?]
