I hope that you have a good weekend feeding the gross and ugly maw of American greed and consumerism. My only purchase has been a copy of the new Planet of the Apes movie that was on sale for 13 dollars at Target. The powers that be claim that today is the best day for bargain hunting. I am going to wait until Sunday or Monday--the sales will be extended--to see what Chinese sweatshop produced clothing items I can procure.
What is your shopping strategy? Do you have any "must have" items that you are still searching for?
Today's sojourn to downtown Chicago will consist of looking for chaos and trouble as the consumer drones run amok, topsy turvy, bumping into each other for cheap gropes, pick-pocketing, and to experience the triumph of spending their money faster than everyone else.
Repeat after me:
The shame of a nation continues. The mass media has nurtured a limited attention span among the American people. What should be the outrage of the year or decade is massaged into a tiny box of fleeting attention that lasts a minute or a second. Subsequently, the CIA torture report has already been thrown down the American people's memory hole (I doubt that will be the case for the country's enemies abroad).
