The Law, in its Majestic equality, forbids rich and poor from being alike

At least when it comes to Urban Camping. Seems the "no camping" ordinance didn't apply at the mall when Greed rather than Need was the motivation to take to the tents. People started camping out early Thanksgiving day to be the first in line for "doorbuster" specials on Black Friday. How about it, Doug, Janis, Sean, Lionel? Chief Meyers? Sheriff Mussolini errr Maketa? How about it Tame Ass Right Wing Media in town, Praising the HomeFull campers for their bravery in voluntarily pitching their tents with plenty of police protection, unlike anything the HomeLess PEOPLE ever got. Hypocrisy, thou hast a name, and thy name is Colorado Springs Establishment. Maybe they could redeem themselves by publishing stories detailing how many of those purchases were made on Credit and in 6 months how many of the Credit Cards used are in default. Black Friday is allegedly a Triumph of Capitalism. Yes, once again the Corporate BigPigs got the commoners to push themselves further into debt which they'll never be able to repay. What a lovely victory that is!

12 credit cards, 12 different names, delivered to same address, same day

Which I witnessed, theres this relative of mine who, for lack of a better word, is a Thief. To be fair to MasterCharge and whatever Visas old name was (Ill look it up) they DID reject half the applications. He put in 25. He only stayed at our house for a week and a half and with that one scam got about $25,000 which he promptly took to Las Vegas. Gambling is a more expensive vice than any dope. But when I go to a local supermarket theres a big push on for people to sign up for a 1-2-3 Rewards MasterCard. My usual joke for the past 6 damn years was that even MasterCard wouldnt be dumb enough to give me a card. All the people there have heard me reject the offer of this credit card. Yet Im still asked. I know the people, theyre not dumb in any way, Mass Senility seems to be out of the question. So why the Ask? 17978
