Tomorrow is Thanks Giving Day. While I don't really believe in tradition (I think it generally strangles society), Thanks Giving is probably one of
the better of the American traditions. Its a time when we can fill our stomachs to the brim while the many Africans, South Americans, and Asians
starve. Its a time when we get together with those drunken uncles, judgmental cousins, and stuck-up tag alongs (who's names you just can't remember),
so that we can all sit in a painfully awkward silence while we religiously consume the store bought turkey & cranberry sauce that reassures us, that
one day, "America will be great again". Hey, its one single day of the 365 day Gregorian hamster wheel, so why not partake (at the very least, for
observational purposes). I'm sure one day, some great wise man will right a book..... "The Psychology and Dogmas of Thanks Giving Day: A True American
Sorry ATS, I couldn't resist taking some cheap shots another Grand American Holiday. If I offended you, be sure to fill my PM inbox.
So what is this really about? Well, as Tyler Derden once said, "The things you own end up owning you". Wow! How true is that?!? Once America shakes
itself out of its tryptophan coma, many of us will run to the department stores, super centers, toy stores...Like the Zombies in the 1978 film Dawn of
the Dead, Merica will fight tooth and nail for cheap garbage, manufactured in foreign countries, by starving women and children. Like the Purge, we
will hate our fellow brothers and sisters, for the sake of tradition. We will cry when we don't get our way. We will trample any living obstacle
between the consumer and the material vice...........and we will do it for a bargain.
Blow out sales that will blow your mind. Toasters, coffee makers, flat screen TV's to accelerate Couch-Potatofication....all 50% off or lower. Do you
needed it? How would you know? You don't know what the word "NEED" means anymore. Prosperity has blinded you to what really matters.
Just remember that when you are sitting there eating your turkey and stuffing, that some broke retail employee...a wage slave...is getting crapped on
by a hierarchy of upper management so that when Black Friday roles around, you can have your way....
And if you don't get your way, you can call the complaint line and have a hard working employee fired.
