"Killing 100,000+ is not one of our family values!

National Anti-War Boycott

Finally a boycott to hit 'em where it hurts! please pass this on,
far and wide!

It doesn't really matter that everyone will be out spending what
they didn't the next day -- a point or two will have been made: Since
our religious leaders will not speak out against the war
in Iraq, since our political leaders don't have the moral courage
to oppose it, Inauguration Day, Thursday, January 20th, 2005 is "Not
One
Damn Dime Day" in America.


On "Not One Damn Dime Day" those who oppose what is happening in
our name in Iraq can speak up with a 24-hour national boycott of all
forms of consumer spending. During "Not One Damn Dime Day" please don't
spend money. Not one damn dime for gasoline. Not one damn
dime for necessities or for impulse purchases. Not one damn dime for
anything
for 24 hours.

On "Not One Damn Dime Day," please boycott Walmart, KMart and
Target. Please don't go to the mall or the local convenience store.
Please don't buy any fast food (or any groceries at all for that
matter). For 24 hours, please do what you can to shut the retail
economy
down. The object is simple. Remind the people in power that the war in
Iraq is immoral and illegal; that they are responsible for starting it
and that it is their responsibility to stop it.

"Not One Damn Dime Day" is to remind them, too, that they work for the
people of the United States of America, not for the
international corporations and K Street lobbyists who represent the
corporations and funnel cash into American politics.



Not One Damn Dime Day" is about supporting the troops. The
politicians put the troops in harm’s way. Now 1,200+ brave
young Americans and (some estimated) 100,000 Iraqis have died.
The politicians owe our troops a plan -- a way to come home.



There's no rally to attend. No marching to do. No left or right
wing agenda to rant about. On "Not One Damn Dime Day" you take action
by doing nothing. You open your mouth by keeping your wallet closed.
For 24 hours, nothing gets spent, not one damn dime, to remind
our religious leaders and our politicians of their moral responsibility
to end the war in Iraq and give America back to the people.



Please share this email with as many people as possible"

I get paid on Thursday, and I'll be sure to spend extra to make up for some of the loss.

i understand that frustration...i don't know about the workers however...i didn't qualify their testing standards, and then wonder what kind of peopel do...i can understand why they do get underpaid...you rarely get anyone working there that makes you want to go back...at least in this area.

they're a corporation...all corportations are the same.
