Black Friday Dealings

Remember when…

Many years ago…

You were proud to be an American?

There were at least four other store shootings during the first holiday shopping weekend. Employees tried to intervene in a domestic dispute that turned deadly at a Florida Walmart, when a man fatally shot a woman multiple before turning the gun on himself. In New Jersey, a man was shot in the wrist at a mall on Black Friday — but no suspect has been identified, and officials say the victim is not helping their investigative efforts. Shots also rang out at malls in Tennessee and Mississippi.

Eating Dirty Laundry: people love it when you lose

Doesn’t this statement seem a little odd if we were to sound it out like we did back in grammar school:

Boehner Backfire!’

I received that via email and wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. Do people think before they write? I know I have been despairingly negligent of the crime…saying and/or writing what people think and are afraid to say. Yet, unless, I had been just discussing how to get rid of that nasty little Viagra downfall…a constant Boehner…the above statement would not rain down upon my melted into humid soup brain.
Other news of the day? People are mad at Rolling Stone!

Really? Dare I bring up the movie the People vs. Larry Flynt?
Not the same premise. However, and I will quote for I am old and lack memory function:

You may not like what he does, but are you prepared to give up his right to do it?

When it's said and done we haven't told you a thing  We all know that Crap is King  Give us dirty laundry!
When it’s said and done we haven’t told you a thing
We all know that Crap is King
Give us dirty laundry!

Freedom of Speech? Boy, we all hate that one, particularly politically correct persons…when it comes back and bites us in the ass.
Maybe to look at the whole ‘let’s make the Boston Bomber a rock star’ idea from a different angle might give a little more light.
The magazine along with many others has lost numbers, money and fans since the boon of cyberspace and junk food junk information. Shit, yeah, they stand to gain far more coverage by putting to shame the victims of the bombing by pimping up Dzhokhar Tsarnaev!

Honestly, I had forgotten that hardcopy magazines existed other than AARP tabloids upon my doctor’s bad bedside manners office furniture.
Truth be told Americans would rather turn their spines inside out to get a glance at a horrific accident than just…ride on by. We’ve been pumped up too long on media testosterone laced with bits of truth.
Soon enough another magazine will do something foul. Perhaps, displaying Demi Moore naked and pregnant! Shit, no…that one’s been done. Maybe, a woman breast-feeding a five-year old…Nope that one’s been done. How about making Adolf Hitler man of the year? Nah, that one’s been taken.
Either way, dirty laundry is fun! To some at least. And, those some will make a hefty sum for Rolling, you must have been Stoned, magazine.

I make my living off the Evening News
Just give me something-something I can use
People love it when you lose,
They love dirty laundry

Well, I coulda been an actor, but I wound up here  I just have to look good, I don't have to be clear
Well, I coulda been an actor, but I wound up here
I just have to look good, I don’t have to be clear

Well, I coulda been an actor, but I wound up here
I just have to look good, I don’t have to be clear
Come and whisper in my ear
Give us dirty laundry

Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em when they’re down
Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em when they’re down
Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em when they’re down
Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em all around

We got the bubble-headed-bleach-blonde who
Comes on at five
She can tell you ’bout the plane crash with a gleam
In her eye
It’s interesting when people die-
Give us dirty laundry

Can we film the operation?
Is the head dead yet?
You know, the boys in the newsroom got a
Running bet
Get the widow on the set!
We need dirty laundry

You don’t really need to find out what’s going on
You don’t really want to know just how far it’s gone
Just leave well enough love
Eat your dirty laundry

Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em when they’re down
Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em when they’re down

Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em when they’re down
Kick ’em when they’re stiff
Kick ’em all around

in life...someone has to win and someone has to lose...
in life…someone has to win and someone has to lose…

Dirty little secrets
Dirty little lies
We got our dirty little fingers in everybody’s pie
We love to cut you down to size
We love dirty laundry

We can do “The Innuendo”
We can dance and sing
When it’s said and done we haven’t told you a thing
We all know that Crap is King
Give us dirty laundry!

“We are all being hit with the dumbed down on Ambien stick everyday!”
