  •  If we went into stores only when we needed.... (1+ / 0-)

    Ever really think about "supply and demand" and its definition of value?  If I have something lots of people want but few gave, supply is low and demand is high so I am wealthy.  If I have something everyone wants but everyone has, demand is high but supply is also high, so I am not wealthy.  If I have something no-one wants, demand is low so I am not wealthy.  Think about it...

    ... If I have clean water but everyone has clean water, I am not wealthy.  If I live in a district with good schools but everyone has access to good schools, I am not wealthy.  If I live in a low-crime neighborhood but everyone lives in a low-crime neighborhood, I am not wealthy.  It is not what I have that defines my wealthiness, it is what you don't have....

    How f*&^%d is that?

    And this is how we define our economy and how successful we are.  Now are you surprised at the behavior of shoppers?

    And we love to wear a badge, a uniform / And we love to fly a flag But I won't...let others live in hell / As we divide against each other And we fight amongst ourselves
