I was perusing through AdBusters.org and IndyMedia.org, finding myself feeling so incredibly hypocritical and passive for not practicing what I preach on my soapbox as much as I possibly could. I'm still unsure of to what extent one should adhere to their political beliefs, within all practical reason. Is not going to franchised fast food chains enough? Or should I stop buying Philidelphia cream cheese and Shake'n Bake, being products of subsidiary companies of Phillip-Morris, the cancer-stick producers? Should I become vegetarian to protest the inhumane conditions in which animals endure? I feel useless and like a politician with empty words.

I want to do this. Now all I need is 100 dollars and a few comrades.
