Wow.. Sooo.. You can log on to Amazon.com and get Hamas and Hezbollah merchandise (merchandise of Islamic terrorists!), but you can’t get a Confederate flag. How hypocritical and insane is that?!? Well, for those that want to buy the Stars and Bars, I just Googled “Confederate Flag for sale,” out of curiosity, and found: ultimateflags.com proudrebel.com and other various sites that carry it. I also just checked and..my local fav flag store here in sunny Colorado, A House of Flags, carries them as well. So, an fyi to those here in the greater Denver area. Their web site is: ahouseofflags.com So, if Amazon is too dumb to turn away the business, then by all means vote with your wallet. There are plenty of other vendors happy to help ya. Just sayin..
“Tom and Jerry” cartoons for Amazon Prime Instant Video subscribers are now reportedly carrying a warning that they may depict scenes of “ethnic and racial prejudice.”
How crazy is that?!?! Another painful example of political correctness in this country gone wild.. I do a lot of shopping on Amazon, personally. But, shame on Amazon for doing this! Hopefully enough people will write Amazon and tell them to give the political correctness disclaimer crap a rest…that they’ll rethink this nonsense. Many of these cartoons were made over 70 years ago, for crying out loud! Its like having to put sensitivity labels on movies like Gone with the Wind, or the Wizard of Oz; both made in the 1930s. Totally ridiculous! Tom & Jerry cartoons are classics.. Maybe I’ll add some to my collection…but see if I can find them some other place other than Amazon. 🙂
