    Friends, there are certain small businesses I still support, especially if I like their values. Even if it costs more.

    Don't use crapazon or fallapartamart. Had pretty good success going to the manufacturers sites. They'll price match as they can cut out the middlemen man. It takes some work an patience but their is life after teh above mentioned monopolies.

    Godspeed

    I would love to tell them to kiss my grits, but it really would not do much anyhow !

    The problem is we are too much dependent on Big Tech to simplify our lives, Boycotting Big-tech is not going to work,

    There must be a way to financially cripple them or at least put a hurt on .
    You mean without having to actually do anything yourself?

    Surprisingly enough, not everyone has access to a Costco, and not all their products are available for purchase online.

    Walmart provides things people need at prices poor people can afford. I don't understand why that's an issue.

    "a desirable or needed thing or event that comes unexpectedly" Nothing to do with God at all.

    Closest one to us is 50 miles.
    When it was first built, wife and I gave it a try. Between the time and fuel we weren't saving money.

    I suppose it's the Snob Factor.
    Which doesn't mean anything to me, we're Po' Folks.

    We do not actualy go to the physical store, it's too far away.
    But a few mouse clicks and it's done.
    Bad thing is you have to give an email to get the confirmation, and then every day I get I get messages from them about the latest deal.

    Yep, Marx was wrong. Electronic tech is the real opiate of the masses.
