Posted on 09/05/2010 10:05:12 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
We recently saw how the DUmmies were offended by being even briefly EXPOSED to Fox News in public places resulting in their efforts to "Turn Off Fox." Well now they are angry about seeing conservative books prominently displayed at Costco as you can see in this THREAD, "Book selection at Costco: what the heck?" Actually they picked a poor target since Costco is run by a couple of Democrats. However, even they have to bow to public demand which wants CONSERVATIVE books. So let us now watch the DUmmies desiring to burn conservative books in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, still waiting for that phone call from Mary Matalin, is in the [brackets]:
Book selection at Costco: what the heck?
[Stand by for more DUmmie censorship fantasies!]
I just got back from stocking up on Charmin and Bounty at the local Costco. Their book selection was completely, totally far right-wing. They have stacks and stacks of Going Rogue, Atlas Shrugged, and The Overton Window.
[My paper towels and TP cost me NOTHING. Coupons.]
I finally spotted a book with President Obama on the cover. It was "Culture of Corruption" by Michelle Malkin.
[LOL! Relief followed by instant disappointment.]
What the heck? Does Costco have a right-wing agenda? Or is it just because I live in Texas?
[It's because you live in your own little universe. And now to hear from your fellow DUmmies...]
Costco has a track record of contributing to the Dem Party (for the most part).
[Too bad for you they are also guided by the EVIL profit motive which means they must stock up on conservative books.]
ALL the warehouse stores have huge amounts of rightwing nonsense in their book selections.
[EEK! Send in the Thought Police!]
Costo headquarters are in liberal Washington State. And I believe the founders are two Dems. I don't think the founders examine every book choice, and as they are a retail outlet, they're going to stock what sells in their area. I prefer to think that stacks of conservative books means that they're not flying off the shelves and into the hands of avid readers. I mean, lots of tea partiers can't, or don't, read.
[I hope you feel comforted by that fantasy.]
The book selection at my Costco is all right-wing trash. And it's in California.
[San Francisco Bay?]
maybe they have a whole bunch because they thought they would sell but aren't and that's why there are plenty.
[Maybe you are clinging a bit too hard on that desperate hope.]
And I go in to that Spokane store and flip them over when I can!
[This DUmmie is like that woman in "Absence of Malice" who desperately picked up all the newspapers from her neighbor's lawns.]
I'd complain with the store manager that there are too much right-wing crap on the book selection, and need to be balanced out.
[And the store manager should reply by having you escorted out.]
I think Costco should modify their book purchasing policy and buy 1/4 of the right-wing crap and buy more liberal stuff and spread it out.
[Spread it out and then dump the liberal books in the remainders bin.]
I'd hate to have to stop shopping there. Their frozen tequila-lime tilapia is to die for. But the imbalance on that book table was just ridiculous.
[I bet I get better deals on tilapia and everthing else with my coupons. FUn Fact: PJ recently bought LARGE Right Guard BO sticks for just 12 cents each. You don't get that deal at Costco.]
I was somewhat under the impression Costco was a "blue company" which is why I would be surprised to learn it was a national thing.
[Rightwing books are EVERYWHERE!!!]
Not just Costco - I noticed the same thing in SAMS last week
DU is a minority group who often seems to thinks it the majority
[You will find your Kewpie Doll on aisle 2 of your local Costco.]
What you do is you just take a book from the next pile and gently place it over the top of the pile of right wing crap. Then you do the same for each volume of garbage you find. Sometimes it's a good idea to put two books on each pile, that way when someone picks up the top book they won't notice the wing nut shit underneath. I once buried a whole stack of sarah palin books at the bottom of the adjacent piles. Childish? Bet you ass. But I had fun doing it.
[DUmmie "intellectualism" on full display.]
Gee DUmmies. Maybe they stock those books because they sell? Just a thought.
You keep telling yourself that, DUmmy. We read well enough to see the "R" on the ballot this November.
“I once buried a whole stack of sarah palin books at the bottom of the adjacent piles. Childish? Bet you ass. But I had fun doing it.”
Plus, with my welfare extensions, I have TIME to do it.
The last time I was in a “warehouse store”, I bought a 250 roll pack of toilet paper. Got a free Sheryl Crow CD with the purchase. LOL!
My Costco had two or three large stacks of David Limbaugh's book "Crimes Against Liberty" on the first day it came out. I might have been one of the first to buy one. That was a Tuesday. By that weekend, they were down to about 4 or 5 books. That was it. They weren't spread around the other stacks, either, because I looked.
what are you going to do with one thousand frozen skillet meals? I hope you have a coupon for 5 or 6 freezers.

After I chewed out the manager of a Barnes & Noble and told him I was tired of having to stand on my head in the back of the store to find the Conservative books, things got a little better. The squeaky wheel and all that!
I have a three bedroom house. One of those bedrooms contains my library. It's filling up fast; I'm going to have to plan for more shelf space in one of the other rooms.
Won't be the first time that books have taken over my house. When I sold my place in California, I filled my truck THREE TIMES to capacity and made trips to the used bookstore to thin the bulk down to the point where it was manageable.
Whenever we add a conservative (or libertarian/conservative) book to our collection, we pick up the latest at Costco. I LOVE aggravating whatever libs are monitoring us by proudly carrying the book throughout the store, cover out... And then holding it in line until we get to the register. I’m always feeling their hateful glances toward me, lol.
I hear ya! My husband reads like you do. I am afraid the stack of books on his side of the bed is going to fall over and crush both of us. When I can no longer stand it I donate them to the library. The used books store won’t pay me enough for them I’d rather donate.
What a fine example of left wing "tolerance." Since the can't kill the messenger they suppress the message.
I had an almost two-foot stack of books on my nightstand that were my 'current reads'. I finished most of them and put them back in the library. The cat kept getting up there and causing avalanches in the night. Now I'm restricting myself to just two at a time on the nightstand.
Now about this...Where? How?
The staff at my local B&N had to search for a copy of "Do as I say." The book is a collection of essays about liberal hypocrites. The back of the book has a copy of Michael Moore's tax return revealing that he owned stock in Halliburton.
As the cashier carried it up front, he glanced at the back cover and stopped in mid step. He looked at me and asked, "Is this true?" We spent nearly half an hour discussing about liberal hypocrisy, including Edwards and his "two Americas."
You need a reader. Stores all your books on your computer. You won’t have to worry about storing hard copies anymore.
Frozen Skillet meals.
I would rather create a fresh meal for 8 bucks or take out my own frozen cooking in a pinch for free.
Which reminds me I got a pot of stew that needs to be portioned and put away in the freezer. (got to stop freepin’....but it is Sunday)
I actually prefer books. I do technology for a living. Sometimes it’s nice to feel pages and smell paper and ink.
Dont be so sure. Obama is doing this for them. He is turning this country into a sinkhole enough to make you “think”.
Yeah yeah yeah, me too. But sometimes I'm in a hurry.
Besides, some of them might be quite edible, and I was reacting to the "free" part, not the 8 bucks part.
This was around the time when Kerry ran against Bush.
Hey, frozen skillet meals might not be perfect but the FREE part makes them highly edible. In just a few minutes I am going to check out to see if I can get 100 oz bottles of Wisk detergent for just $1.25. I just got the word on that but need to check it out.
Research. Look. If I give away all my secrets the store shelves will be empty of the stuff I want.
Just by giving away FREE skillet meals, I guarantee you I can get free foot freezer space. Like I go up to a friend and say, "I will give you a hundred FREE skillet meals and in return, I need you to make space for another hundred skillet meals for me."
Oh sure, first you put it out there and then just cruelly yank it away.
Besides, my store shelves are thousands of miles away from your store shelves.
BTW I read by comment mode untill something that intrests me to go to the thread and read more.
I caught your post on the comment mode.
I think it’s cool that you can go over to DU and come back with humor on board.
Bravado too. : )
Use google. I don’t make it easy. BUT...after I do the deal, I will relate in detail how it happened. Right now working on the Wisk detergent deal...
It’s simple economics, conservatives buy conservative books, liberals shoplift liberal books.
I agree completely. I was in a B & N yesterday and right a the front door they had electronic readers. I knew the sales person and told him that when I read a book I want to feel that book in my hands. He secretly agreed.
We sure can!
Hell, I don’t even know if I like them, just taking your word for it.
I guess the deal here is, don’t bring a coupon to a skillet fight.
Poor DUmmies not understanding businesses need to provide what their customers want.
And, PJ, hon, I read your posts about couponing all the time and I have to ask, just how much deodorant do you have??
And I hope you have a GIANT freezer. :-)
The DUmmie couldn’d find the latest book on Marxism so he has to throw a fit.
Books are like gasses. They expand to fill all of the available space.
This is why the wife and I are making the shift to electronic books.
I hate having to give up a beloved book when there in no way to fit more in the house.
It’s in stock on Amazon -
Marking for curiosity.
Delusion is usually their first fallback. I was really expecting somewhere along the line for a Dummie to claim that they buy both liberal and conservative books equally, but alas, the liberal books sell out as fast as they arrive.
Since they didn't do that, one has to suspect that they know that most liberal books are off to the clearance outlet within weeks of release. So once delusion is abandoned, it is next on to obfuscation. As exampled, they hide it, pretend to others it's not there.
Step three for a Dummie is diversion, to blame others. The store manager orders too much of it, they can't get liberal books cheap enough, everything else is to blame, but the message itself.
The final step is to whine. Because it is so tightly tied with diversion, it is hard to tell when they are in whine mode until they start blaming that which they are trying to protect. Bill's book isn't selling because of that stupid sex stuff, Al Gore's not doing enough to promote his movie, etc.
In a Dummie's universe, every issue, thought, and ideal is set entirely in stone. And anything that tilts those tablets makes for a violent reaction. Women in politics are prefered. Unless it's a conservative female, who is just delusional. Except Sarah Palin who is just some idiot housewife who thinks she knows more than she really does. Which is completely sexist and bigoted, but it's ok, because it's against an adversary, and don't you dare claim it against one of theirs...
Remember when Amazon removed everyone's copy of "1984" from their Kindles?
LOL. I always pile conservative books on TOP of libby books—had a field day leaving Sarah Palin’s smilin’ face all over the place awhile back! :-)
I also turn over/around books with MO and BO’s mugs grinning out at us :-p And no, it’s not because of their color! D’oh. I HATE THEIR POLITICS AND WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO AMERICA THAT MY CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR. Period.
I do love my reader, though. So easy to carry around (I have an older Sony and it's small).
I thought I'd miss holding a book. I don't. So nice to not have to hold the pages open when reading. But I get that a lot of people really like having the books to be able to turn the pages.
