    cdw Ahhhh...the good life.

    Has anyone actually participated in a protest? Like out there with signs and such? I've never done such a thing...even back in the "revolution' of the sixties. I remember when the college friends of ours were joining the revolution... I just sat back and laughed. I thought how absurd. All this protesting today and apparently it's not going to stop anytime soon is also, to me, absurd.
    Am I just lazy?
    And not just that... all these calls for boycotts. I have never purposely not gone to an establishment or purchased a product from some manufacturer or store because of their political views. Why? I want the product, not their friendship or politics/religious beliefs.

    No, I've never joined a protest. Signing a petition is as far as I've ever gone, even though I lived in Boston during the Vietnam era.

    I'm with you on the boycotts! The motives behind some of them are highly questionable. I just buy where I want to and to heck with those people.

    ShinyTop I know what is right or wrong!

    Does it count that I trained to face protester crowds?
