Madness



 

These are the top headlines from the Drudge Report for the day after Thanksgiving, 2013. It’s actually an improvement over last year, since the body count was lower. The irony of a holiday called “THANKSgiving” being disgraced in this manner is especially galling. On the very day when we are supposed to be thankful for what we already have, millions of Americans have been whipped into a covetous frenzy of consumerism that turns them into animals, fully capable of assault and battery over the prospect of saving a buck on the latest trinket.

What in the hell has happened to us?
