    ...toward this action and the admittedly minor inconvenience it may cause to what will probably be very few bookstore employees if I thought it was actually going to accomplish something.  It strikes me as the kind of action that you can have a good laugh about afterwards but will have zero effect on Cheney or the larger issue of war crimes.

      and I don't ever think about the people that have to reshelve the books. Didn't cross my mind.
      But when I see offensive people selling their offensive books, I hide them.
      I was in the library yesterday and saw Bachmann's book. So, I hid it high up where it won't be found for sometime.
      It is the idea of a war criminal, or a bigot's book being out for people to read.
      Yes, it is censorship on my part.

      Obama is complicit in the Bush/Cheney war crimes and every vote for him in 2012 is a vote approving of the Bush/Cheney/Obama war crimes.

        I often put them behind another book in the same shelf in the bookstore.  It is petty but there you go, at least it is nondestructive.

        •  Just an aggravation for the store clerk (0+ / 0-)

          who has to go find the books and move them back.  (Yes, bookstores keep an inventory so they have to find and account for those books you move).  

          So the petty move is only petty against the store clerk.  That's all you are accomplishing.

            I do understand what you are saying over and over.  But I find the lies of these people offensive, and I know it is petty. But just so much fun

            •  I guess I take it more personally (0+ / 0-)

              because I see the local bookstores that I love having a harder and harder time surviving against Amazon and other web-based booksellers.  And I don't think the local owners need this kind of additional aggravation.
