It's admirable, awesome, how the guy manages to squeeze the primitives, and more power to him.

Spread the Love and Support Democratic Underground! It's Valentine Hearts Week on DU

It's that time of year again! Spread some goodwill to your fellow DUers...

It's almost Valentine's Day -- time to Spread the Love to all your friends on Democratic Underground! From now until February 15, we're doing our annual Valentine Hearts promotion. Purchase a DU Star Membership or renew your existing membership, and we'll give you Valentine hearts to share with your DU friends. For every dollar you spend, you'll get one Valentine heart.

And now, a quick word about primary season on DU...

While I've got your attention, many of you have been asking whether we're going to be opening up a separate forum for the Democratic presidential primaries, as we have in the past. The answer is yes. Once Valentine Hearts week is over, we'll be unveiling the new forum and our plans for primary season. The new forum isn't going to be quite the same as it has been in the past -- we are doing things a little differently this time around, and we hope you will like what we have in store. Soon after the fund drive is over, we will make an announcement explaining everything.

So with that said... thank you for supporting Democratic Underground!

Oh goody, goody.  The primary forum's coming up, in which the primitives can rip each other to shreds for our comedic relief.   :heart:

I'm surprised he doesn't sell them $1/each or 3 for $5.  The "customers" would be going nuts.

For you or me, sir, Skins might offer a discount for quantity.

But these are primitives here, who know little or nothing about finance and economics, and so if the primitives are willing to pay the full price, so be it.

I noticed he knows how stupid his followers are that they need EXAMPLES of what "$1 each" means. 

As you note, smart people give and look for discounts.  That way you encourage people to spend more $.  In this case it is insane NOT to give volume breaks as they cost NOTHING to manufacture and the supply is UNLIMITED.

This is what happens to your brain on socialism, folks.

A tip from Uncle Ralphie.  It is pretty easy for a good mole/troll to grovel for hearts.  And a donor star for that matter.  Some creativity and the gullible nature of DUmmies is easily exploitable.  Just don't come out and ask for them.  That becomes too blatant. :cheersmate:

That he has to explain to them that $1 x 5 = $5, $1 x 10 = $10, $1 x 20 = $20, etc... is all you really need to know about the primitives.

Did you send some "love" to bravenak, Nematode, mal, and S80? To thank them for the entertainment they provide? :rotf:
