The Cult of Apple

“The first effect of not believing in God is to believe in anything”

— G.K. Chesterton

appleThis is why America is in the shape it is.

What were you doing last Friday, Sept. 20, 2013?

Were you at work? I was home, and although I’m technically retired from university teaching, I’m working harder than ever in my retirement — taking care of my family, home and garden, and writing-administering two blogs, including FOTM.

Hundreds of Americans however had so much free time that they lined up for hours, even days, at Apple stores across America, so that they could fork over hundreds of dollars for the latest iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. Other Apple cultists paid as much as $14 per hour for “line-sitters” to wait in line for them.

Analysts expect  Apple to sell as many as 6.5 million iPhone 5 units this opening weekend.

Some of the Apple cultists who patiently waited in line can’t even articulate why they so badly want the iPhone 5. Like this woman iMoron:

If she had voted in 2012 or 2008, what are the chances she voted for the POS?

100% is a safe bet!

So sad what our younger generation has unvolved into. Brain dead, brainwashed electro heads. When it all chrashes they will not survive. Just dummer than a box of rocks. Pathatic.

ONE OF THE BEST POSTS EVER!!! Wow, you took the words right out of my mouth and heart, Dr. Eowyn. I have never understood why the hoi polloi, the you-owe-me idiots, the nonentities who wouldn’t be caught dead working, EXPECT their freebies, like those of us brought up with principles and ethics were born to wait on their lownesses. I’d better go before I get really mad. BTW, you get my Hero of the Century award!

Last Friday I was with my husband visiting a holy site and having fun together. I was not working. However, I thoroughly enjoyed myself which included looking at all of God’s beautiful creation on the way to our destination.

Nevertheless, I, too, cannot understand these technological cult purchases. This illustrates the upside-down priorities people have; it is the devil who inspires such upside-down thought processes.

Dave will be hanging on to his “dumb” phone for the duration.

And when it finally craps out, given the recent revelations about the NSA, I’ll probably get another one just like it.

Besides, given the 15+ years I spent running Autocad, I can’t read the stoopid little screens on smart phones, anyway.

Hell, I don’t even like laptops.

Strange story here I found on commieblaster about apple not recognizing Jerusalem being in Israel.

https://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/09/22/just-wait-until-you-see-how-apples-new-operating-system-lists-jerusalem/

BTW, I heard Hilary is going to give free apple iphones to underprivileged Americans before the election in 2016. Just kidding.

Any truth to the fingerprint tracker on the 5C?
