Risk Rap

Rapping About a World at Risk

Best Buy Tent City

Its official. The battle has been joined and America’s values are alive and well in the War Against Christmas.  A lead news story on CNN this morning is of a family setting up a tent at the doorway of a Best Buy in Orlando. These intrepid people, steeped in wholesome pursuit of real family values have staked a claim to be first in line for the annual Black Friday deathcage match. These gladiators of consumer capitalism are toughing it out. They choose to courageously suffer the discomforts of the bleak concrete jungle. Their bivouac is a full week in advance of the day after Thanksgiving orgy of shopping that has become an annual rite of American’s unabashed prostration to consumer excess.

This family are truly free market heroes. They will be joined with armies of fellow patriots. Together they will tramp to the Malls of America armed with nothing more then a wallet full of limit challenged credit cards in their battle to stimulate demand for Chinese manufacturers and to thoroughly route the enemies warring against Christmas.

This family is unselfishly sacrificing quality family time. Each member will take turns standing post in this righteous encampment. This will allow other family members rest at home or go about the daily activities of civilian life. For these product purchasing patriots even Thanksgiving will need to be sacrificed at mammon’s alter so they can stand as vigilant sentinels guarding their place at the head of the Best Buy line. The thought of missing bargains or failing to secure the purchase of this years newest hot product due to an expired inventory is a fate just to terrible to contemplate.

This family clearly has their priorities strait. They are determined to satisfy the Christmas wishes of family and friends. These radical entitle-istes will not be denied their 10% discount on X Boxes and Ipods. This family will not rest until the mission to buy a Medal of Honor Black Ops or Mafia 2 “The City of Lost Heaven” video game for the special children in their lives is secured, wrapped and placed under the family’s silver coated Tannenbaum.

Like all thoughtful people this family will pause on Thanksgiving Day or sometime during their 168 hour vigil to express deep gratitude that their tent is much nicer then the typical residences recently springing up on the outskirts of Port-Au-Prince.

Soldier on you bold armies of the night.  Solider on.
