Buy a beer company
 
I doubt I'll do it, but it might be kind of fun to say you [URL="http://buyabeercompany.com/"]own a part of Pabst Brewing Company.[/URL] Pledges start at $5.00 and then on up to $250,000.

Seriously give the money to a charity, this is just plain dumb.

Why not buy a comic book for $6? The money goes to help cancer reasearch.

I already donate to various causes, so I am not gonna feel guilty when people say that. I think its pretty stupid thing to say, no offense.

Why not start using public transport, stop buying fast food, don't watch movies, stop buying games, stop smoking/drinking coffee/drinking booze. There are poor kids starving and that money could go to better use.

Why when you put money towards an "official cause" it has to "good". My personal drinking is a cause, to my personal hooskins drunk fund.

Why is that alright, but donating to buying a beer company is suddenly wrong?

Not asking you to feel guilty just think it is a better cause in my opion then buying a beer company. Those that you listed are not "causes", buying into the beer company is supporting a cause.

Geez, talk about waking up on the wrong side.

Nothing personal man, I am just wondering. They are a bunch of people ragging on the guys trying to get the bus signs against DS and VC. Doesn't make sense IMO.

What is a "cause"; to me that is very subjective. IMO it is something that matters to you. All those things I mentioned, plus donating to my religious center, Salvation Army, etc. are "causes" for me. And if you want to say buying a beer company is a "cause", I can easily just say it is an "investment" for me. Just like buying a video game is an investment for my future utility.

I just feel everyone thinks we need to be high and holy when it comes to these subjectively defined "causes", yet is socially acceptable to "waste money" towards goods(money towards games/booze/etc can be used for donating to the poor, for example).

In the end people just spend money on what satisfies their utility. You and I donate to charities because we think it is the right thing to do, makes us feel better, etc. All those things are done because we are satisfying our desires/utility.

Nothing personal again, maybe it came out wrong. Sorry about that.

Haha. I am also extremely bored at work. Monday's are usually really slow here, so I am working on boosting up my post count.

All 3 have gotten a revival, along with several other beers through Pabst Brewing Company. Essentially a marketing company now, Pabst outsources the brewing of each beer in their [URL="http://www.pabstbrewingco.com/portfolio/default.aspx"]Portfolio[/URL] to MillerCoors for production.

I know after I left college, some of my fraternity brothers turned to Natty Boh and Stroh's because Natty Light was over $10/case.
