I bought my set at Best Buy for $35 but, I mean, BS is about consciousness, not just spiritually but socially and politically as well. That's why you might want to know about this:


http://www.opensecrets.org/indivs/index.asp

Under "Employer", type in the store you want to buy it from and check off "2006", then click Search. You will then see a list of political donors who are also employees of that company. It also lists what they donated to.

Best Buy and Wal-Mart are mostly Republican, Amazon is a pretty even split. . .

Just to point this out, it lists all of the employees of the company and who they donated to. One of the occupations listed for Wal Mart: Truck Driver.

It's how you addressed the issue. It's like blaming the company for one employee's actions.
