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!

Biggest Advertising Faux Pas

Just cruised by a TV. Tonight the diet-and-exercise show Biggest Loser... which has promotional sponsors who for one show hawk their wares, apiece, usually a food related sponsor, or Pilates, or something like that. Campbell's Soup, SubWay, Wendy's. Tonight... the United States Army. OOOPS. So the Army, which is trying desperately to claim the victory, the Win, the everything-but-utter-defeat... is sponsoring "The Biggest Loser". For those who aren't in the know, the Army really doesn't promote itself as a place to straighten out your life or get physically fit or emotionally together. They figure if you're not a grown up too bad, if you're out of shape they'd rather you didn't apply, unless they're digging for numbers and cannon fodder. Contrary to their advertising of course. Also they don't consider themselves to be a College Prep school nor an employment agency, even though they vaguely hint at it in their ads. They don't want to advertise the shocking numbers of Combat Vets who are unemployed and or homeless. Speaking of, it's almost time for the annual Stand Down, which, this year, takes place against a backdrop of Criminalized Homelessness. What a lovely and patriotic gesture the CSPD and Sheriff Maketa's Gestapo are going to present! Oh Well. Oh Hell.
