Happy Mostly Meaningless and Vaguely Communist Holiday!

I'd love to join you in a masturbatory orgy of instant gratification at the local retail outlet...

...but I have too much work to do.


Fuck you.

Gotta admit . . . I'm a bit like that woman until I get my Egg McMuffin and a couple large diet cokes in me. I have yet to assume my "ultimate form" though . . . .

All she wanted was her fucking chicken McNuggets. Unfortunately, the Borg at McDonald's couldn't buck the hive.

The the closing down of the college and the courts today has given me the opportunity to actually get some productive work done.

For most American holidays (REAL American holidays such as Independence Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day), my wife and I try to not do our shopping at the retail stores because all of these sales events they hold in the name of the holiday do violence to the real meaning of the holiday.

For this one, however, we're torn. The so-called "Labor Day" was not instituted to commemorate real American values, so the argument for not desecrating the sanctity of Labor Day does not wash (unless you are a unionist leftard).

On the other hand, I'm getting too much done, too efficiently, to waste my time poking through the crowds and waiting in the check-out lines at all of the stores. And, because the New York primary elections are a little more than a week away, I'm also missing out on hearing all of the blithering drivel from the politicians who, no doubt, will be making campaign stops at high human concentration events.

So, in a sense, by not going to all of those high-hype sales events and beach events and the like, I am refraining from desecrating a day that rightly ought be desecrated!
