We Are NOT Buying It! (Impeach Bush Barf Alert)
wearenotbuyingit.org ^ | 2/19/2007 | wearenotbuyingit.org

Posted on 02/19/2007 7:17:20 AM PST by Dallas59

January 1, 2007 - A national coaltion of citizens, including war veterans, distinguished academics, students, journalists, artists, and elected officials have joined with us to call for a nationwide boycott of all consumer activity, for one week in April..

The organizers of the boycott have recognized the fact, that our elected representatives have been unwilling to move forward on the public's overwhelming demands for impeachment and an end to the war in Iraq.

This boycott is a way of unifying the opposition to the Bush Administration; and according to Dr. Peter Phillips, who was the first to propose the idea in December, "could well be the straw that broke the camel's back".

The boycott has been called in response to the statement by the new Speaker of The House Nancy Pelosi, that the issue of impeachment was "off the table".

This is a free country, and they are free to do this.

I am sure they will be, er, very successful at not buying anything, particularly if they don't have any money anyway.

The moonbats are not satisfied with the Democrats' blather about ending the war. They want action. Personally, I hope they press the Democrats into impeaching Bush. At least this Do Nothing Congress would be remembered for doing something substantiative for a change.

How utterly cute! Wrecking the U.S. economy is what al-Qaeda was attempting to do. Nice to see the "anti-Iraq-democracy and pro-brutal-totalitarianism" crowd on the same page as al-Qaeda.

What about a Freeper boycott on all goods from the obvious sources?

For example: It's been at least six years since I've gone to the movies, and rare for me to even rent one. The obvious propaganda and bias infuriates me, and I just don't support them anymore. I'll catch the occasional one on TV, but usually am disappointed.

I haven't purchased a CD in over 7 or 8 years. I get by on radio, where I can find a station I like, and when something (like Dixie Chicks) comes on, I change the channel.

I personally boycott in many ways.

BS. Boycotts are a joke. Nervous Nellies stock up the day/week before the "boycott." So where' the lack of sales? Simple economics and market forces prove boycotts are rarely effective. As for a boycott ruining our economy... that's a bigger joke than Al Gore's global warming scare tactics.

From the site:

"Consumers are asked to withhold their spending for seven days, beginning on Sunday April 15 and lasting until Sunday April 2, 2007.

Do NOT shop corporate outlets

Minimize use of oil and gas.

Carpool: bus, bike or walk.

If you buy, BUY LOCALLY.

Plan Ahead and Stock Up."

Please explain to me how a boycott like this works, when they're telling people to 'stock up' the weeks ahead? Wouldn't that just even things out?

ROFLMAO!

The one truth of why they will not impeach GW is because they do not want Dick Cheney in the presidents chair, that is the only real true reason, period

This is just stupid on so many levels, the most obvious is the one you point out. That said, I had fun with the NODDD loons and I'll have fun with this as well.

There are two notorious hard-core lefties (pseudo-commies) in my department at work. They yakked it up about NODDD so I made a point of buying everyone in the group EXCEPT THEM a Starbucks of their choice. Later I invited everyone to go to lunch en-masse, and then said, "Sorry you guys can't join us. Wouldn't want you to ruin your little protest. Enjoy your boycott!".

One of the things I have learned about lefties is that they are acutely sensitive to peer pressure. They rely on it to get what they want, but it is a two-edged sword that skewers them just as easily.

I can't wait!

Folks, look at the bright side. This is funny!!

In the old days, the communists would call a general strike. These modern reds are so soft, they they will just stop buying stuff for one measly week. Of course, they will continue to work (those who are employed), but will just try to disrupt the economy of others.

It is so looney. They are to refrain from consumer activities, yet many of those participants (those who are employed) are probably in the business of selling to others in some way. After all, they can't all be living on welfare or trust funds. So they are urging everyone to go to work, but to do nothing. That is probably the way many of them act most of the time, anyway.

I love to observe how stupid these anti-Americans can be: it gives me a sense of confidence. Surely they will not be able to lead our country long.
