I NEED NOTHING.



buy nothing black friday

this year on black friday:

$60 billion will be spent on meaningless holiday gifts. that's up from $52 billion last year. that amount of money could feed all of the hungry children in the world for 2 years! that's 190,000 children.


160 million people plan to shop. that's half of the u.s. population, and greater than the 121 million u.s. citizens that voted.

1. Spending drives the American economy and means jobs.

 

You really want to argue the American people don't need jobs?

Think of all those retail workers at home unemployed...I don't understand what the virtue of that is.

3. Not really. Some could have genetic problems and never even be viable.

 

Some are aborted, exposed to crystal meth or excessive alcohol or lack of nutrition. Some are exposed to depleted uranium.

We are born lucky or unlucky, but we also make our own luck.
