The War on Christmas – waged by secular humanists and their corporate stooges – grabs all the headlines, with their Satanic and UnAmerican “Happy Holidays” slogans and Starbucks cups sans Santa. But less talked about is the Corporate War on Thanksgiving.
For you see, when I was little, in the 1970′s and 1980′s, pretty much every store and office in America was closed. Only dedicated fire fighters, police officers, and medical professionals like my parents, worked.
Thanksgiving was a special day.
Nowadays, all the stores and malls are open, hence much of the olde time Thanksgiving charm is lost, particularlty for the poor suckers who have to work or be on call, if the store manager needs a few more registers open or you work late night till early morning Friday getting things ready, and guns loaded, for the Black Friday Massacre.
Mall stores that opt to close on Thankgviing day are forced to pay fines to corporate because the rest of the mall is open. Because the mall’s gonna be open on Thanksgiving and it would look bad if some of the stores weren’t open, see? You wouldn’t want to make the mall look bad, would you? And there you have it. Corporate is waging the War on Thanksgiving, and that’s why wingnutz don’t give two flying fucks about it.
Soon Thanksgiving will be just another day, with we the people scurrying liie the rats that we are, to our offices and to stores, so the Corporate Person, be it Corporate Man or Corporate Woman or Corporate Transgender pronoun, can maximize profits to shareholders.
And then the War on Thanksgiving will be over and Corporate Person has won and the Hunan Person has lost.
