I'm not McGrubbing it!

My writing style was recently compared to the stern objectivism of author Ayn Rand by co-workers. I question whether that is a good thing but she is a helluva writer. As my friend Pax Romano preaches from his one-hand clapping choir, there is no such thing as bad pubilicity.
There are enough reminders and bad publicity about American society being obese. After a few months of inactivity on my part, I am getting almost as guilty as the fat man in the circus. I believe that home cooked meals are too often replaced with fast food takeout in this culture. After a few billion people served at Mcdonalds alone, the biggie supersize craze was introduced as a convenient way to ordering larger quantities of unhealthy food.
Since we got that all behind us literally and figuratively. What's my beef pattie now? Well, something is wrong with the way we do business when we can now buy something so consumeable as McDonald's fast food using credit cards with double digit compounding interest. That's right with a wave of a plastic credit card you can eat now and pay later. Ten years from now, these consumers will still be burping up the sorry remants of $23.00 greasy burgers. No thank you. I'll pay cash. I'm not McGrubbing it on credit! Thanks for listening to another Ayn Rand rant.

Plastic can pay for anything now, and it's disgusting!

Sounds like your artistic endeavors are going well. Envy! Happy for you! I have really liked your writing for a few years!

I am back after a short break from blogging, and hope that you will relink me in your reader.
Cheers!

Ayn would be proud of your latest rant; she might even have shrugged like atlas once did.

Pax,
A building has integrity just like a man. And just as seldom. With that being said, I will see you in Officeland tomorrow. lol

Speaking of food; when you see Pax tomorrow, please ask him for me, "Where's my meatloaf?"
