"You're welcome everyone  But even after reading the article, I'm not sure whether the boycott is necessarily a good thing.  I know plenty of people who work their rear ends off in 100+ and -1 or less, weather; farmers, highway…"

"Thanks for the links.   That is inappropriate treatment of hard working people.   Unfortunately while Amazon is the direct culprit, indirectly it is the logical outcome of capitalistic conditions:  Competition, customers…"

"Thanks, Pat, for finding/posting that link. Actually, I think it a bit ironic that AtheistNexus is promoting celebrating the religious holiday season. For online bookstores, there are better options than Amazon, like Powells Books which is unionized…"

"I'm sure with your boycotting you are going to throw a few bucks Nexus's way right? The Amazon request was simply another alternative. Atheist Nexus should not be punished for Amazon's actions, and I'm sure you're grateful…"

Tenken replied to JoAnn Keenan's discussion Please boycott Amazon.
"Thanks!  Yeah, I am inclined not to support Amazon after reading that.  It sounds like they are working their employees harder than I would like.  I'll wait another week for my package if it means better working conditions. …"

JoAnn Keenan replied to JoAnn Keenan's discussion Please boycott Amazon.
"Sorry, folks. After posting, I went hunting for the link from within the last week and was unable to find it. It was definitely about current working conditions at at least one Amazon location, and is a worker action. If I can find it, I'll…"

"Agreed.  A quick search didn't help me figure out what boycott he's talking about either.  What's this boycott about?"

"I'll be using Thinkgeek for most of my holiday shopping, but I gotta admit, it can be difficult to shop for people back home without using Amazon.com, when you live abroad. That said, I might be able to accomplish this. I'm hoping to bring…"

Please boycott Amazon.

I just read the AtheistNexus request that we all purchase holiday items through Amazon. Some may not be aware that there has been a boycott of Amazon.com by some of their workers. So, I will respectfully declint to purchase Amazon products this season, and hope that others will also boycott Amazon. (I plan to confine my giving this solstice season to sustainable, local, organic consumables.) {clunk, clunk.... getting off soapbox) See More

"Peaches, pears, nectarines, tomatoes, summer squash, green onions and leeks, chard, green beans, melons, peppers of all kinds and many other things. Find something/s fresh that you love. Stir fry or saute or BBQ it on skewers. Add protein by adding…"

JoAnn Keenan replied to Louis's discussion What do I make for dinner tonight in the group THE KNIFE & FORK
"Look for something that's now in season (better and cheaper), and that you love to eat. Consider making something that will leave freezable leftovers, for a future date when you won't have enough time to cook, but still want to eat…"
