Now I Have Seen Everything!

I've lived 48 years on this earth and thought I had seen just about everything, well today I came across a blog post that just cracked me up. Time For Democrats To Boycott EBAY for Backing John McCain?

If you thought the seller boycott was a non-starter, then this post should make you chuckle. I loved this quote the most:

"Democrats helped build EBAY, helped Meg Whitman build the company into the giant it is today with 15,000 employees. Has the time come to pull the rug out from under her, show EBAY that choosing sides, backing a man and a party half the nations hates is simply NOT GOOD BUSINESS? Should America's Democrats cancel their accounts, orchestrate a boycott, hold online one day sick ins when Democrats avoid the site at all costs?"

Now isn't this plain silly? I did have a short laugh and thought I would share it with you. I hope i don't offend half of my readers, who are Democrats.

Just my 12%!

That's hilarious. I've also seen someone compare the fee increases to tax hikes like the "dumbocraps" want

I like looking up companies here to see what political contributions they've made

Rob Chestnut and Billy Cobb are Obama fans too apparently. There are quite a few Romney fans in the corporation. Pierre Omidyar's only contribution was the max amount to Nancy Pelosi.

Make of this what you will

Unoffended Democrat* here. :-D

I'm still trying to figure out if that piece was serious or not.

* that is, would be a Democrat if British people living in France got a vote in the US elections. Which I entirely think we should.

Sue, if a Brit living in France got a vote in the US Elections it would certainly prove I hadn't seen everything.

BTW, I love that Brit sense of humor. FYI, I am about 80% Brit; both my parents have ancestors that came over on the Mayflower.
