2. Of course the consumer is to blame.
Edited on Mon Jan-28-08 08:03 PM by Kutjara
After all, our entire economy is based on the principle of transforming precious, non-renewable natural resources into festive cocktail umbrellas. After the capitalists have gone to all the trouble of making the latest and greatest new and improved turnip-twaddler, it is the consumer's sworn duty to buy same, regardless of utility or need. Failure to do so is disloyalty tantamount to treason. Every piece of crap that is produced must be bought. It's the American way.

Honestly, this is so basic. Weren't you paying attention in primary school?
