The YouTube comments on this are fucking atrocious, but what should I have expected? Black Friday is a great day in America, because for 24 hours rich people get to mock poor people for fighting to acquire the same kind of electronic bullshit—albeit of a lower quality—that already adorns every room in rich people’s condos and McMansions.

But they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the American economy … We’ve got to stop lurching from crisis to crisis to crisis when there’s this clear path ahead of us that simply requires some discipline, some responsibility, and some compromise. That’s where we need to go. That’s how this needs to work."
