In the immortal words of Dr. Johnny Fever, “Hello fellow babies!” Let’s blow the blues and get down to some rock and roll!

Friends, have you grown weary of being good little troopers, always playing nice and doin’ what the man expects, what makes it all work for the man? Are you tired of being disappointed that implied social contracts just don’t seem to get notice from the powers that be, no matter how well and diligently you hold up your end?

Does it make any sense that we go shopping at places that create shortages just to whip us up into a frenzy to where we will fight each other over unnecessary things while commerce just smiles, nods, run to the bank with deposits?

Friends, it’s time to just step back and think about it. Why go dancing to bad bands? Fellow babies, I am serious. We need to think about where we point our feet.

Walmart? Fuggitabout it! Saw some news items that some mall stores got so pissed off about the frenzy they whipped up with their ‘limited supplies’ of Door Buster Specials!!! that they locked their doors.

Yes, folks, some stores created the very messes that got so out of hand with people getting so frustrated and angry that they just went uncharastically bonkers. Then, some of those stores just shut their door, drew the bars across the window and expected everything to just magically get better on its own.

Weird, man, just too freaking weird. I mean, people, take a smoke break or something and think about it. You have your nice big family feast. Sure, now you are stoked on calories and carbs. Then all that information hits your mailbox and you get like, “Dude, where’s the mall? I gotta go shopping! I must do what is expected…..” You show up prepared, serious shoes on, wallet in one hand, list in the other. Ok, maybe you are frothing a bit at the mouth, but it’s not like you bite people regularly, and it’s unlikely you really have much of a bite anyway, let alone rabies or any other dangerous communicable cooties. And your very presence scares some commerce dudes to the point they lock doors and throw up bars to slow down the very widespread contagion of crazy they set the stage for.

What the figgy pudding? Fleck the malls. If some commerce dudes get so shortsighted that they lock out the very customers who really do shop often, supporting them in all seasons, just because of some temporary shopper mayhem, well, Fleck the Malls and light up a fatty, pour a tumbler of Christmas hooch, break into the chocolate stocking stuffers or what ever else you do to just relax, and give yourself the gift of some quiet, silent nights.

Fellow babies, ya gotta remember: The commerce is dependent on you, not the other way around, unless of course you are working as a temp in a Honey Baked Ham emporium, hoping for enough cash to get you through the next half semester at Whatsamatter U. If that’s the case, well, the Doctor can see you’re just screwed. But for the greater good, let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me. And no, I won’t bogart that spiff. I want you to be calm too, cuz you are my fellow babies and the Doctor loves each and every one of you, in varying degrees, of course. And only in a non-bibical way, if you get my drift. OK, OK, there are a couple of clowns the Doctor would let Herb toss out of a helicopter next time he takes a flockin’  bunch of turkeys for a ride, but it’s not like it would ever actually happen fer reals.

The doctor knows you don’t want to get stampeded into buying crap you don’t really need from businesses that treat you like a commodity instead of like individuals.

Malls don’t work if they are empty. No mu-zak man. Just not what stirs the soul and puts a fire in the belly.

And now, the doctor is gonna be out for a spell. This is KGON radio, the waves that rock and roll.

    Testing, testing, one, two, check mic…check, check, three! Let’s git ‘er done! I want some “lights out – total darkness” to befall those “powers that be” @ Current to put the fear of all that’s “wholely commercialistic” in the one place that will do the greatest good…the cutting off of their purse strings!

    Revenue, Revenue, Toils with Troubles,
    Fires Burn and Commercialism Bubbles!

    ‘Tis I, Buckeye Bill! In the “virtual flesh”!

    P.S. A Hearty “shout-out” to bailey and Attlia the Blond! Hey…a great guffaw could do the trick, too! I like to go around guffawing! It’s my favorite past-time hobby!

      Hi ohioan
      I am at your side always on this internet of friends. I am tired of the trolls also. I sometimes know them. Others I think I can trust only to find they are not who they say. Sometimes, except for the friends that have always been here. I don’t know who to trust. Current needs to do abetter job. Give me instructions and I will follow.

        Hey there! Sister Sarah! I’ve been over at Current rtolling for trolls, but they seem to be a little on the thin side this late afternoon! It must not be dark enough for them to leave their batcaves…I’m sure they don’t want THEIR hiding places to be found out by us since we might roll a big rock to close off the entrance and then how would they flitter about from website to website leaving their bat guano about to stink up the places and spread vile bile diseases of the unsavory kind! They are experts at squatting and squirting their feces of words that contribute to hate and discontent upon unsuspecting commenters of the world!

        With you here, I feel better about our chances to send a message to the Czars of Current by way of our “Speak Out By Sit Out” campaign against their “commercialized site”! We’re all part of the Current Community Commenter Campaign Against Corporate Commercialism Movement.

        L8R, M’Lady Sarah!

          It’s not the commercialization I object to. I am a realist. I know a site with lots of traffic needs bandwidth and that costs money. Hey, go Mozilla with ad block and ads aren’t even visible.

          What I object to is the slow response to swarms of trolls. One assumes mods there have access to what ISP addresses are used for most posters, so it just shouldn’t be too hard to weed out socks too. When socks and troll are left to run amok to the point of provoking a kind soul like KB and they he is the one who gets whacked, well THAT really puts a burr under my saddle.

          Any site that relies on user created content needs to treat those users better. That’s my beef.

        I prefer an Interrobang over an asterisk any day of the week and thrice on Thursdays! LOL

        One cannot be too careful these days! I found out that a certain someone who’s name I shall not mention follows Current commenters to another site to gather information so she can report back to her cohorts in their batcave they share! It’s almost as if she can hear her name spoken on the wind and it will guide her to any destination where she is mentioned! I take a grave chance just saying the word “her” when speaking about HER! Spooky! But “she-devils” don’t have pointy ears for nuttin’!

          They have a bat cave? Oh my. I do prefer the encampment here, but perhaps a more secure area would be better? I am basically a trusting person. And at my age, I should know better by now.

          If anyone has a better idea, we need to hear it, perhaps on the email tree.

    Has anyone given any thought to utilizing a YouTube “channel” for meetings and such? It is an option that can be further researched until everyone agrees on it being the “final destination” for things such as this! We all can kick the tires, check out what’s under the hood, get the feel of the steering wheel, etc.! Then make a descision….that would be my suggestion.

    Besides, you;’e not as old as you think…compared to some of us, why…you’re just a “Yute”!

    We can all try the YouTube route and see what everyone thinks….a “Channel” can be “hidden” and like here, comments screened…but the best thang is if one doesn’t ‘broadcast” the whereabouts of that channel, it’s next to impossible to find without an invitation! But there’s the crux of all sites…eventually a troll is iinvited in by accident and the whole thing collapses!

    Oh gawd…I’ve worn out my keyboard cleaning it so much…I’ve removed them to them point they stick so often…it’s really getting to be a big hassle! I’ll press a key and then have to “backspace” to get rid of the twenty “i”s that miraculously appear when typing a word like “like”! Liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiike. I’m a frugal person at heart, but this must end! I’ll have to spring for a new keyboard….waaaaaaa! (Oh, the extra “a”s were deliberate….this time!
    Hey, virtual world…has anyone seen the latest wacko reich wing fraulein flick starring Litlle Ms. Victoria Jackson?

    Come 4 PM EST today, Attila will be busy brushing the horses, checking the tents for needed repairs, going over some maps. This will take through Sunday. While I will likely be spotted around the encampment here, I will not be found trekking to other battlefields.

    Time is yours to do with as you will. Many thanks.

    HA!!! Too funny – I’m blushing.
    Funny, I’m having a ball doing this “organizing” stuff – I used to work for a Labour Lawyer (for the EMPLOYER’s side) who said I’d make a great UNION organizer…)!!
    Guess that’s my “new calling” in life – stirring up s**t – have always been good at that – just ask the ex-husband. No – don’t. I had him declared “deceased” years ago.
    Anything I can do to call attention to the stupidity of the moderation staff at “that site” – count me IN. No “clicks” for them. No soup, either.
    I must run now, my own tent needs mending – and must give my horse a shower, before we’re off to our next conquest.

      My sister is 10 years older than me. When I was about 14, I visited her for a couple weeks. Met the boss at her second job and we had a great lively discussion. Then he told me “Kid, I like you and you have to stay away from my other employees.” Asked why. “Because YOU are the sort that organizes unions!” and he laughed. He was really an OK guy, but it was a tiny business.

      Thanks for braving a recon. Got notification of your PM and broke curfew to see what it was. Did not click the links though. Should I?

      Frankly thinking a group that just loves to descend on liberal forums has swooped in. Sad to be so miserable in life that they cruise looking for others to try and make as miserable as they are. They tend to prey on members of boards who are trusting (most of us are) and naive (I used to be both) but they flush themselves out eventually. Seems as how they aren’t happy unless they make others unhappy.

      And they lurk a lot. Maybe no friends, maybe housebound, dunno, but they do spend an inordinate effort to disrupt people who want a community where constructive and informative discussions are possible.

      Wish I had their bar bills for income! LOL Bar bills can be mean because they are so sad, but some folks really rack them up.

      Will not give out anyone’s email addresses without their explicit consent. You are all precious to me and I will do what I can to facilitate staying in touch, but only with permission.

      And if we don’t hear from you, here or on forums, you have a great Christmas too, Scott Pert! Your integrity is appreciated.
