Happy Capitalism Weekend

While the carnage of Black Friday is behind us, it’s not too late to gather around the warming glow of the Ronco Showtime Rotisserie Cooker and give thanks for all the rival Target patrons we’ve drop-kicked, all the piece-of-crap iPhone 5S’s we’ve trashed, and planned obsolescence we’ve fueled. A Happy Cappy day to all.

Ferguson Is Burning

Ferguson

After a half-hearted attempt at garnering an indictment of Ferguson officer Darren Wilson. Ferguson’s law enforcement apparatus ended their facade of due process yesterday. Several days beforehand, Governor Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency in Missouri, no doubt having gathered that the state’s judicial system had no intention of punishing one of its own.

Gimme Mah Nucular Pills!

Much like Texas, everything in America is done in a big way. We don’t half-ass things – we fully-ass them.
