CONSUME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The New York Times reports employee trampled to death by consumers.

The throng of Wal-Mart shoppers had been building all night, filling sidewalks and stretching across a vast parking lot at the Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream, N.Y. At 3:30 a.m., the Nassau County police had to be called in for crowd control, and an officer with a bullhorn pleaded for order.
Tension grew as the 5 a.m. opening neared. Someone taped up a crude poster: “Blitz Line Starts Here.”

By 4:55, with no police officers in sight, the crowd of more than 2,000 had become a rabble, and could be held back no longer. Fists banged and shoulders pressed on the sliding-glass double doors, which bowed in with the weight of the assault. Six to 10 workers inside tried to push back, but it was hopeless.
Suddenly, witnesses and the police said, the doors shattered, and the shrieking mob surged through in a blind rush for holiday bargains. One worker, Jdimytai Damour, 34, was thrown back onto the black linoleum tiles and trampled in the stampede that streamed over and around him. Others who had stood alongside Mr. Damour trying to hold the doors were also hurled back and run over, witnesses said.

(Story continues here.)

I really am ashamed to be a citizen of the same culture-entity / nation-state as these maggots. A throng of people beating down the gates to……………shop at wal-mart?
Consumers. CONSUME. GOD I hate this country sometimes.

Oh, and the national bureau of economic research is fired. Gee, thanks for that insightful revelation there ya jackasses……

Feeling better (finally) than I did last week (or most of the week after that) but still not quite 100%. I should have time this week to catch up. No really. 🙂
