Hamsters in plastic balls...

       On my way home from work tonight I stopped in at a Dollar store, which was crammed between a Taco Bell and a KFC, which were all, relatively, across the street from a Starbucks.  This is the perfect lower-middle class trap.  Americans try and save money by shopping at Dollar stores and eating at cheap fast food chains so they can afford to drink Starbucks on their morning commute.  It's a cycle, it sucks, and it's beautiful, unmitigated capitalism.  

The reason it works?  Americans are incredibly gullible, trainable, and so thoroughly bred to seek the best while also simultaneously seeking the cheapest that we can hardly walk out the door of the Dollar store without the overwhelming urge to spend $5 on a Latte.  

America in decline?  HA!
