I understand capitalism and how we have to keep the economy going, but I think that text book sales and buy-backs are the biggest rip off going. You pay over $100 for a book, USED at that, then they offer to buy it back for five bucks, then turn around and sell it again for a mint. That's sort of the way I feel about all these in-home parties where women sell cosmetics, home decorating accessories or enough scented candles to illuminate and stink up a village. It's a tiered racket system where somebody is always being taken advantage of. I could never host one of those parties, because I always felt like I would be ripping off friends. My rant of the day.
