    American Express ?

    Received a facebook message from my favorite gun store today. American Express is having a "Small Business Saturday" event after black friday. Give Am Ex users a $25 credit on their card to shop at registered stores that are truly small business's. Great! Except... firearms dealers are excluded as being "controversial".

    Well... needless to say, I won't be using my American Express card this year. Or in the future.

    *For the purpose of this Program, qualifying small businesses include small, locally-owned storefront and online businesses with $10 million in annual revenue or less. Businesses in the following industries are excluded: government agencies, charities, non-profits, trade associations, shopping property management firms, political, religious and educational organizations. Small businesses that are part of a franchise brand with more than 100 stores are excluded. Additionally, if a franchise brand has more than 20 corporate-owned units, then the entire brand is excluded. Small businesses that promote any of the following are not eligible for the Program: pharmaceuticals, drugs, politics, pornography or sexual aids, diet aids, gambling, liquor, tobacco, firearms/weapons, or any sensitive topic with respect to current events.

    So the drug store around the corner that sells cool little curios and antiques is off limits? No toys for the wife and I either? Damn, there goes half my Christmas list. I was gonna buy vibrators and a new rifle for her. Oh well. Guess I'll just have to use cash. Mama needs her toys

    Remember to buy batteries too. Some toys are more fun with batteries than without.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.
