    Customer participation is entirely optional.

    Drop out of the consumer culture.

    Do you mean “You didn’t build that”?

    On a slightly more serious note, I find myself in a quandry. Caught on the horns of a dilemma. On the one hand, I’d like to see the economy pick up more, especially on the employment side, for all sorts of reasons too obvious to need explication. On the other hand, I worry that the kind of economy we have now is heading for environmental disaster. Somehow we have to figure out how to create a sustainable and prosperous economic system. And for the whole world, not just for us here in the First World. If you take the average energy use of someone in the US and multiply it by the total world population, you get a number that is not sustainable. I’m inclined to think that neither traditional capitalism nor traditional socialism can figure this out. We need an entirely new model.

    Owning a tool you use, like a computer, is not the same as rushing out on Black Friday to buy things no one needs for people you don’t like with money you don’t have.

    @Rad-ish

    Yes, I agree. I only buy the things I need, when I need them, with money that I already have.

    I’m a Free Enterprise conservative and I believe in private property and private business and the Profit goal, from farmers to manufacturers. But this cartoon points to the movement to erase Christ-mas from US culture….and sadly,
    Jolly Santa’s name can be rearranged to spell “Satan”….the enemy of God and of the Saviour Jesus that came to give himself as payment for mankind’s sins…..that the celebration of Christmas symbolizes.

    P.S. and Thanksgiving originally was a day to Thank the Lord God for His many blessings to Mankind and especially to the numbers of the persons in the Faith. Also the target of Satan.

    Anti-consumerism is a Marxist ideology. After nearly a century of seeing that nobody was buying their message, Marxists started wrapping their ideology in the environmental movement. Viola! People like you!

    Do you still have a copy of The Population Bomb on your nightstand?

    You could engage in serious discussion rather than just being snide.

    He could, but he probably won’t. May I suggest, after looking at how things are going here on Gocomics editorials, that we refrain from engaging with those who will not or cannot engage and concentrate on responding only to those who will? this does not mean talking only with those of our political orientation, but it may mean talking with only those who are serious about such exchanges and not simply trying for points in some imaginary game.

    “I’m a Free Enterprise conservative”

    Yeah, who also takes full advantage of Medicare. What a hypocrite you are.

    Whoops, I’m sorry…you assumed this other thread would just disappear…

    “P.S. and Thanksgiving originally was a day to Thank the Lord God”

    I’m pretty sure the Indians who saved your ancestors did not behave according to your fantasy…more likely they died because of it, hypocrite.

    " But of course he likes the shiftless poor as they vote Democrat."

    Is this really true? Or are there a surprising number of “shiftless poor” who vote Republican against their own best interest, and shift what value they have to the top 1%?

    I do believe the Republicans are very good at getting people to vote against their own best interest.
