No Shame.

Well, they aren’t even trying to hide it any more.  Via Glennzilla, here is the goodie bag that all atendees of the Democratic National Convention will recieve.

See anything funny about it? I notice that the frackin’ AT&T logo is the biggest damn thing on the bag.  Even the letters for AT&T are in a larger font than anything else.

As the Hep Cats say today, WTF ?

The whole system is bought and paid for by corporations that have no interests beyond making the very rich richer.  That is the reality we live in.  We are a top-heavy imperialistic power that is listing dangerously.  I seriously wouldn’t put it past our current leaders to come up with a way to suspend our democracy and try to install Bush as President for Life.

Start growing a garden.  Hug your neighbors.  Be nicer.  I think we’re in for a hell of a ride.

  2. Yup, it’s official! The dems have sold the whole damn party to at&t! Next the two parties of the apocalypse will be renaming washingtOOn “halliburtonville.” The capital dome would look so kean with the halliburton logo painted on it!

    I heard that countrywide financial corp wanted to buy the Lincoln Memorial, but they couldn’t get a mortgage *snicker*

  4. That is the million dollar question, Static.

    Clapso – You know the corporations would love to ‘cross-brand’ all the Washington monuments and buildings. Just like there are few stadiums left that don’t have some crappy corporate moniker…

  5. What’s really funny is the stadiums are all built with tax dollars.

    This is really how things work here in the USA. THE TAX PAYERS FUND BUILDING THINGS THEN THE corpoRATeers come in and splash their names all over everything.

    Koolaid anyone?
