Cyber Monday? Seriously? Is Resistance Futile?

Harrison Ford and Sean Young as human replicants in Blade Runner

Well, why not just go full cycle with Bionic Tuesday, Pneumatic Wednesday, Hydraulic Thursday and keep the whole Black Friday assembly line going, until we’re all just equivalents of the mindless computers and games and dolls that they’re trying to push on us until the money comes out automatically and we can jack right in without all the advertising?

I mean, we’re already forbidden from saying “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Hanukkah,” as they’ve been homogenized into the ritualistic and asinine  “Happy Holidays!”   Why not just skip the holidays (the food and good cheer, the visits and hugs with friends and family, the warmth of the hearth and the joy at snow outside, and the charity toward those less fortunate,) entirely and just have one big Skype-fest?  After all, it’s as good as being there. . .

Awhile back, I did a post called “Who Programs You?” https://clothosloom.wordpress.com/2012/06/12/who-programs-you-15-2/and this is exactly what I was talking about.

So how’s that for a nice short, efficient rant?  My IPad will be jealous.
