Shop until you drop…someone.
Yes, I’m getting a head start on being a curmudgeon.
Recently I was talking to a prominent local businessman about how hectic our respective schedules are. Toward the end of the conversation he said, with an air of frustrated exhaustion, “And on top of my daily business doings, there’s also all of the groups calling for charitable contributions.” He added: “You have to help them, of course.”
Whenever the media are not bashing business for being insufficiently green, or for exploiting various groups, they are advocating that businesses be more “socially involved.” This is certainly true with the incessant cries to help education.
So: the Federal Government recently shut down; according to a unanimous chorus of left and left-to-center publications and blogs, Ted Cruz is the biggest idiot in America—even to members of his own party; Barack Obama is wielding power not seen since Mussolini—or worse, FDR; the Republican Party is in disarray; the Democratic Party is in similar disarray; the Tea Party is to blame for the impending deaths of schoolchildren nationwide; national parks are closed but the IRS is open; Rachel Maddow is a brilliant and perceptive commentator; oh, and so is Bill O’Reilly, he to whom the spirit moves.
Confused? You’re not the only one.
