Enough to drive a man crazy...

We're trying to do the right thing, really we are. But things have gotten so bad in terms of labor and environmentally sound products that really, it's tough.

Knucklehead and I are getting married. And while we're having what's going to look (in some ways) like a traditional Jewish wedding, we're trying to make it our own. we're also involving friends and family in the process as best we can so it doesn't put our parents and ourselves in debt.

After much (generous, I add... I do appreciate impatient gift givers) nudging from my folks, we're going to try to start registering for things we think we need for our new place.

A few small problems come into play here. First, we don't even know what our new place is going to be. If you get beyond that, we have some of our own stuff, and have no idea how much of it we're keeping or sacrificing to the building sale/rummage folk heroes.

But here's the tough question: should I get union made products in a store that gives a shitload of money to republicans? or sweatshop made stuff in a store that gives almost exclusively to Dems? These are things I stress about at 3am.
