Is It the Towels or the Lure of Bread and Circuses?

Sunday, November 25, 2012 19:42 6 Comments

Enjoy the show: Walmartians fighting over cheap towels on Black Friday. Yet ask anyone who has ever had a garage sale about how you cannot sell brand new $5 towels for 50 cents without a long line and a tramplefest. On the same topic, Mark Dice has some fun heckling the Black Friday zombie apocalypse. [...]

I Slept Through Black Friday

I was on the way to northern Michigan yesterday morning, and along the way I passed some mega malls along I-75 on the outskirts of the Detroit Metro area. It looked like tent city – tents and people everywhere, waiting for the doors of Best Buy, and similar places, to open. On the way back, [...]

Butler Shaffer on Individuality vs. Institutions

Sunday, October 28, 2012 19:02 No Comments

I highly recommend that people buy Butler Shaffer’s new book, The Wizards of Ozymandias, if they are at all interested in an anarcho-capitalist’s assessment of the dissolution of Western culture and civilization. A nice snippet from the Mises.org book review is as follows: Western culture has produced material and spiritual values that have done so much to [...]

Yum! Brands believes its new feedbags will make it even easier for Americans to constantly be eating while moving less. Tell me The Onion doesn’t get the absurdity of American food culture. (Yes, this is satire.) New Wearable Feedbags Let Americans Eat More, Move Less

Va-Screwed Up

Too many self-absorbed people are just way too fucking bored. (Vajazzling and Va-Ttooing.) Charles Burris writes this to me: “This brings narcissistic self-absorption and conspicuous decadence to a whole new level.” As the thought goes, one must be a prude if ya can’t fathom the culture.

Silicone Self-Esteem

Even a commie is a “hoot” (pun intended!) once in a while. Mr. Bills on artificial trophy topography (silicone self-esteem): In the end I guess my own gender is most to blame. ……… Even as adults, middle-aged dads and graying solitary or married men, we still lead with or can be led by our loins.

Exalt Your Adult Adolescence

If this doesn’t make you cry …. Skip Oliva alerted me to this site called perpetualkid.com, a website for parents of children and grown-up children who are ageless consumers of the campaign to keep Americans dumbed down and happily engaged in bread and circuses.

Boobus Meets the Police State

Here is some more madness on the part of the shopping intoxicated masses. In Texas, people were storming the malls and crushing their way through the doors to buy the new Nike Air Jordan athletic shoe at the bargain price of $175. Watch this video to see the crowds, and especially, the interviews with the [...]

Here we go with another episode of Dingbatus Americanus Consumerism: The line of several thousand waiting customers wrapped entirely around the Toys R Us building at 4411 W. Wisconsin Ave. Thursday night. Moments before the store opened at 10 p.m., the line of those who’d just arrived and line of those who’d waited many hours overlapped. [...]
