Death of a Nation

rip The Nation has long since been all but unreadable. Now, they are turning themselves in a tchotchke peddler. And the geegaws are utterly terrible, too. If liberals were half as smart as they like to think they are (or as The Nation tells them they are), this crap wouldn’t be possible.

Michael, after all of the times you’ve hurt me, I know I shouldn’t come crawling back to you. You’ve done it again, though. I am a GLUTTON for the punishment you dish out. Going by these signs, it really can’t be long now before Bruce Springsteen is hawking tickets to Dancing With World Leaders, so that for only an additional $9.99 a month on your Netflix bill, you can watch Obama and Satan dancing homoerotically on the national mall, drinking wine made from the blood of children while ordering that dump trucks full of this year’s wheat crop be burned… Read more »

I am mostly fascinated that such projects are viable to begin with. Not in whether or not this would be profitable (it almost certainly will be), but in a sense that sufficient number of adults decide that this is worth doing to begin with.

I suppose this is the result of my relative comfort (for now…, and lack of impetus for hustling), but generally I am simply incapable of imagining myself ever being able to propose this type of project/shop/specific souvenir with a straight… Read more »

I’m glad Marla raised the point she did about effort. We believe in transnational elites, and yet, we’re confronted with The Hangover (and the Nation’s new coffee mugs) produced by their media entities, which would seem to suggest that these robber barons are dundering morons. How can they possibly maintain such a strong grip on global politics if they’re really that dumb? This is the power of management and delegation. By creating a climate in which there are true believers, the elites provide that the true believers will–for low salaries, on their own time, and while simultaneously doing all of… Read more »

I just can’t do TV anymore – all the grown-ups are falling all over “Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men” and the alleged high-brow ecstasies, but the characters are repellent. The same goes for pop music, now that I spent 3 hours in a car with the prepubescent set listening to the Brill Building latest crass and shrill “product,”, I’m also ever so proud that I am rid of compelling youthful addictions: movies, novels, all over-hyped delusions. So that makes me just another get-off-my-lawn non-purchaser, dipping into the faded, puterfying Internet for quick chills. At least I don’t have to teach… Read more »
