Slaves2Darkness: AngryDragon: Shopping is a sport all right.  The customers are the prey.  Vote with your wallets, folks.  It's the only thing you can do to have any impact any more.

Any idiot who went out in a consumer feeding frenzy last night or this morning gave up the right to biatch about "evil corporations" until next Thanksgiving.  Better luck next year.

No, any idiot who bought an X Box One or Playstation 4 has no right to biatch about evil corporations, not after the government of China ordered Chinese university students into "internships" at the Foxconn plant on the production lines of the X Box One and Playstation 4. Enjoy your entertainment brought to you by slave labor.

Oh please. Have you looked at the tags on any random consumer product you buy? Everything is made in China now. Chances are, whatever you're typing on was built in China. Come down off your high horse and realize this is the world we live in. My iPad is made in China. My iPhone is made in China. My TV remote is made in China. The plate I ate breakfast off of is made in China. My wallet is made in China. My toenail clippers, silverware, picture frames, etc etc etc
/the lotion I fapped with though, that was made in the old US of A
