    A few years ago I tried adding the trailer onto my sig, but the code exceeded 4 lines. Shortly after that I noted your sig and was like 'wtf' but it wasn't a big deal so I let it go.

    A word of caution, large sigs on every member's post can be a turn off. It basically turns into spam, especially with the one-liner replies and animated signatures.

    No worries man....
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Not that many people used facebook or twitter back then. Particularly at the start of those wars, I don't know that fb or twit even existed.

    So, how about it? Are we becoming more selfish? Is this lashing out like depicted in the story a result of people feeling like they are being too tightly controlled? What say you?
    Ahh, Christmas, the only holiday season in which people can sing about peace on Earth and good will towards men, while being complete assholes.

    Consumerism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Lets try this again, can you give me an example of rampant consumerism that is thuggish? They aren't equivocal.
    Well, if I were to define each word:

    Rampant
    Rampant - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
    growing quickly and in a way that is difficult to control

    Consumerism
    Consumerism - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
    the actions of people who spend a lot of money on goods and services

    So, by definition, rampant consumerism translates to out of control actions of people who spend a lot of money on goods and services.

    So I am providing you with an example of rampant consumerism that is thuggish - you are just too partisan to acknowledge it.

    Its Wal Mart. That makes it an alien universe totally apart from the one most other people live in.

    The inevitable result from a society where some folks keep preaching the rights and wants of the so called sovereign INDIVIDUAL as God over society.

    Bull****, I've been shopping at Walmart for years and have never witnessed anything even close to the incident in the OP. Have you ever been in a Walmart?

    Our local Walmart used to have the Black Friday fights until they went to the stand in line to get a ticket to stand in line system. Some people get too wrapped up into it, but at the same time, it is a reflection of people's economic desperation running smack into the wall of our materialistic culture. I don't do Black Friday. Never have and never will.
