Shop While They Drop – The $2.99 Sacrifice (May 7, 2007)

After the events on 9/11, Bush suggested that the American populace should go shopping.  Not that they should sacrifice but that they should consume.  Not that they should give up but that they go get.  There is a deep disconnection between the American public and the troops in Iraq.  While a few fight, the rest shop ’til they drop.  They shop while the soldiers drop.  They shop for a “Support The Troops” decal, slap it on the back of the SUV and call it good.  The $2.99 sacrifice.

Bumper stickers of the week:

“…And they, since they/ Were not the one dead, turned to their affairs”

War is terrorism with a bigger budget.
