". bunch of people sitting on a couch waiting for their next government check..." Well that's what our government wants for us. If we're successful and productive, then we're evil and must be destroyed! What's the point of working if we're going to be demonized and penalized, and unlimately have our earning confiscated to bail out the deadbeats. If you can't beat them... join them!
That's from the mobile site headline.
I pre-date McD's and 'Happy Meals', but we had toy premiums... well... everywhere. Cracker Jacks, gum, cereal, bubble bath, potato chips, everything else. Buy a certain brand of shoes and get a 'golden prize egg' filled with goodies. Or get a grab bag. Jelly jars that became drinking glasses. Comics at Big Boy. Send boxtops to Battle Creek for a prize. Collect bottle caps, I got a Pepsi jacket that way. Not just for kids, gas station giveaways: stamps, tiger tails, plastic horseshoes. Grandma got towels and drinking glasses from laundry detergent boxes, and got a nice silverplated tea set by saving Green Stamps from the grocer. Stores actually competed for our business. Today: no willpower w/o the force of government. Progress.
