— Open Blogger I think it's time for a slight revision to the Unofficial Hierarchy of Western Civilization. As of today, the bottom three slots are:
That's right - I paint them all with the same broad brush.

Shoppers gathered for a pre-dwan sale in Morristown apparently got into an argument that led to one woman's arrest
Pre-dwan? Layers and layers of fact-checking and editing.

This is one of the reasons the elite bathe smugly in their shallow superiority. They never have to get down with the beasts and vie for scarce resources.
There has to be a better way.

1) Show up to the store early and get the tickets giving me the right to buy the really good stuff (TVs and the like).
2) After they run out of tickets, walk down the line and sell my tickets for an easy 20-50 dollars per.
3) Go home early and get to bed before the store opens, congratulating myself on another job well done.

I remember this stuff when 95% of kids in America wanted the exact same Mario or Zelda video game in the 80s. That sort of made sense because of the high demand and very limited supply. My parents never got involved and as a result I never got any of those "hot" toys at Christmas, but I turned out alright (aside from the functioning alcoholism and right-wing blog addiction). Is there even a must-have something that kids universally want this year or is this just some 20% off nonsense that is only 15% online? I'm lost.
My wife and I don't have kids yet, but if a similar situation presents itself when we do I suspect it'll go something like this:
Remember that time you cried in public and/or didn't listen to your parents?
I saw that.
As a result, I have decided to delay delivery on that super-cool toy you really wanted by thirty days. Merry Christmas and smarten up.
Done and done.

A friend of my daughter's called very early (05:00 am) and was told "they were all sold". So I am glad I did not go down and fight the crowds for that.

Hell that's nothin.
At grocery sales for coffee, meat,etc. they're soldout before the doors open. I followed a dude to the stock area once and spied a full pallet of onsale stuff. Dude says they were too busy. Suuuuuure.

OK, this is my town (well, OK, I live a ways out of town these days), so let's get some perspective. Buffalo is a city that has been on the decline for decades. They have alway (ALWAYS) had a Democrat mayor). They constantly harass and demonize business, and then whine about how their kids have to leave town to make a living. Viturally all of my relatives who have stayed put work for some level of govt. The top 5 employers were the govt, last I heard (or was it more than just five?).
One of the latest headlines is about how to upgrade the Peace Bridge (which leads to Canada). All you have to do is go look at the thing to see it is a parking lot. So you need a better prosess and facilities at either end, not the second span for tens of millions of dollars that is being planned. And planned. And planned. It's been going on for over ten years.
And don't get me started on how they reacted when somebody wanted to invest about a billion dollars to do something useful (relating to helping with the developing energy crisis, no less) with one of the old steelmills that act as a constant eyesore, and pay no taxes.
In summary, this town is quntessentially "stuck on stupid". Whatever California is, was invented here. So don't expect too much from this town.

I can read faster than newsbobbles can talk, text doesn't generally fail to load, and I'm not left waiting for some idiot video server to fail. At least have a paragraph of descriptive text so everything's not just an endless list of links to broken videos.

I haven't been out in about 10 years. It is way more crazy than it used to be, a lot of the items are limited supply, and I would much prefer to shop on line. and it has certainly gotten a lot more dangerous.
