Ice storm interrupted internet, crappy WiFi, double post...
We used to have more local options around here but over the last 10 years, many local vendors have closed leaving either Wal-Fart or Target, neither of which I particularly enjoy. Two of the options now gone was Sears and Kmart. Target has gotten rather pricey over the last several years, especially when comparing most of their stuff to Wal-Fart.
Unfortunately, within a 5 mile radius of me are two each, Wal-Fart and Target and no competitors.
I was in Walmart yesterday while browsing gun sites via VPN.
Or, it just could be that Clem i nthe back unplugged the router to vacuum the office, too.
Never ascribe to malice that which can better be ascribed to incompetence.
I ordered oil for my truck off Amazon. First time not buying oil change supplies from Wal-Mart in 30 years. Wal-Mart can go to hell.
I'd love to boycott Walmart but... they are a fact of life out in the middle of nowhere, bumble, flyover country.
Amazon. I do use Amazon a lot. Mostly because I shop but hate doing it. Amazons just as hypocritical as Dicks, Walmart or whoever. Sell all the machines to load Ammo, just not the components.
If it were the government's policy to block access to THR, then yes, it would be totalitarian; this is a private corporation exercising their own rights on their own network.
So...inregards to boycotts and shopping at Wal-Mart or other anti 2A companies (REI, Patagonia, Dick's, etc.)
I had an opportunity to speak with some teenagers a few months back about the founding fathers and the causes of the American Revolution wherein I asked the following question, that I now leave with you for your own consideration:
The founders went out of their way to cause economic hardship for the British Empire by using boycotts, smuggling, and, to some extent, violence or at least the threat of violence. Think about a cause about which you are passionate. What are you willing to do to affect change for that cause? What are you willing to sacrifice? Are you willing to not buy your favorite products? Are you willing to give up your phone? How long are you willing to sustain that sacrifice?
Without any judgment or condemnation of anyone, I'll just leave that thought here.
That’s nothing, look at the major corporations that try and mislead millions every day. At least that’s better than cities that want to fine residents for not sorting recyclable trash from other stuff then dump everything in the same place, because you can just quit going to Walmart and the problem is averted. In the other case you have to move.
So in essence all of the WWW is owned by private corporations?
This one is just sorta all over the place and not really that on topic for THR. Time to call it a day.
