Tony: Demand More Than Local Leftovers

Now’s the time when trite sentimentality dominates the news cycle at the expense of every other kind of news.

Luckily, online readers know that challenging the status quo during the holiday season is the best way to bring everybody down and spoil so much corporate propaganda.

For the most part local mainstream news coverage is just a minor interruption from advertisements to keep people buying things they don’t need. But with the ongoing downward economic spiral, I’m hoping that local plebs will start pushing back.

Therefore, let’s look at a few mainstream media news cliches that demonstrate local reporters are phoning it in:

Black Friday and X-Mas Retail News – Yes, people are going to spend money they don’t have this holiday season. But that really doesn’t impact the rest of the year as much as people initially reported. For instance, last year featured somewhat optimistic returns for the Holidays but the mass layoffs and the "jobless recovery" continued long after the weather warmed up.

Remember that the new economy includes a China and India and they don’t really make a big deal of X-mas, not even with all those American jobs.

Good Deeds Done Dirt Cheap – Charity is great and it helps ease the lingering feeling of white guilt that dominates popular culture. However, so many people this year advocated for less healthcare for the poor, tax cuts for the rich and continued support for TWO WARS that no longer have any clear objectives. Put simply, it’s time to debunk the notion that people can spend most of the year being complete bastards and then work it all off by donating a few nickles.

Hope For The New Year – Change starts now no matter what local newsies report. Most people know that New Year’s Diets fail along with all the rest of their resolutions. Waiting for a time or date to start anew puts hopes and dreams on a false time-line.

There’s no time like the here and now.

And waiting a month to gorge on bad holiday food or getting liquored up during X-mas parties just doesn’t make sense. I encourage everyone to start their resolutions sooner in order to get the failure out of the way quicker.

For my part, this holiday season, I’m gonna be even less cheerful.
