I'm being serious. Face it America is not going to change overnight so why not change it in a year.
A 1 year boycott on everything will rattle some cages.
Some may even enjoy the carefree living and continue.

ive been boycotting walmart for years! havent been in one for a long time. I try to buy local as much as possible. I will pay more for something that is made in the USA which there is not much of anymore. The biggest thing is Americans are cheap. we will buy foreign to save a buck than complain about the economy. it all goes round people. soon the US will build NOTHING. and we will be in a much worse shape. until people get off their wallets and spend more to support US goods things willonly get worse. Sure it might be tight at first but it would turn this country around. Lets face it half our country is owned by another country and more than half are goods come from another country. soon we will be run by another country!

And Im sick of hearing about illigals taking all the American jobs, yet most of the American people are to good to work for minimum wage they would rather live off the vine. personally I would work 3 minnimum wage jobs if it meant a better life for my family. I dont get people. I dont make enough, I cant offered to make my payment this month....SO get another job. take scrap metal back paint the neighbors house or pull the weeds at the old ladys place down the street... THere is stuff to do. people are most of the time to lazy or to good to do that type of work. 1/2 of something is better then all of nothing!

Ok Im not going on anymore...lol but until we support our own country (buying American made goods) it will not start to support us.

And yes all fast food needs to go away. And funny enough I was talking to my wife about gettign a goat yesterday..haha

It is more an economic stand. We are feeding and selling ourselves crap! Over charging for it too! So many of us have zero skills outside of what we learned in school. Nothing worthwhile for life skills is being handed down to our kids. One thing the Amish have right is how self sufficient they are.

Another plus will be the shit ton of money each of us will be saving!
Putting money into the economy didnt do a fucking thing, but keep those that were struggling, struggling longer.

Fuck the economy, keep your money, become self sufficient, and learn some worthy skills.

We do not need McDonalds, Starbucks, Walmart, Tim Hortons, or the like on every fucking corner. Oh boo fucking hooo! So what if they employ thousands. Aside from their job in a chain store using the free wifi to keep tabs on twitter and fb they are completely useless to a society that is drowning in ignorance.

Our government is simply standing in the background collecting taxes and laughing at the people.

YEP. its Fing BS if you actually look at what the government allows food companies to put in our food. It makes me sick! And again its all to save a fucking dollar. They do it becasue its cheaper to produce and it gives longer shelf lifes. For the food that is, not for us.


BTW have you been watching to much Mountain men..
