*shudder*

I find your comments about "drinking the koolaid" very offensive and your comment about "posting a few facts" quite condescending.
It is interesting that they look at things in that thread exactly opposite of where we generally stand.

Same reason I avoid GQ & GQ Forum, I don't care who wears the crap as long as it looks good and it is not a waste of money. I have been slowy trying to convert my wife from getting piles of crap that falls apart to fewer items of higher quality - it just does not make sense from a monetary nor environmental perspective.

I imagine posting there and trying to reason with these handbagistas is like pushing a boulder up a hill; or worse, discussing the virtues of black suits in a non-funeral environment with Manton. At least you got one girl to reply. The rest probably wanted to just talk about what bags they still need to buy to make them happy by filling the holes in their lives.

The fact that they do not understand the concept of why there is a mark-up is priceless.

It is disconcerting how huge the mark-ups are....but we keep buying because we want them.

My Vet has a 75% markup on a bottle of vitamin paste for my dog. Why????

Ever been to the Hospital ER lately where you will be charged 75 dollars for a Tylenol? Same stuff you can buy at a Dollar Store.
Well, dear, if there were no mark-ups on products, there would be no gross profit, no gross profit means no ability for firms to pay wages, no wages means no money for average Joe, no money for average Joe means no free economy/market, no free economy/market means the USSR

Bread, comrade, is this the line for bread? And is there meat today?

I have never conceded the utility of a black suit even for funerals.
