Why I Don’t Shop with Amazon


Where we shop is a personal choice. Most people simply shop for the best price and don’t realize what it ultimately costs them and their community. When you buy from local retailers, 45% of the profits stay in your community. When you buy from a big box retailer only 18% remains. When you buy with Amazon or any online retailer, the number falls even more. There’s also labor, freedom of speech, antitrust, economic, financial, and ethical reasons I won;t shop with Amazon. I pay a little more but the relationships I;ve built with my local retailers will last a lifetime.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
