Patriotism the Travelocity Way

I got this colossally inane bit of marketing copy in an e-mail yesterday:

travelocity

There’s nothing more patriotic than saving money?

If you were naive like me, you might think upholding the constitution, or protecting the environment would be more patriotic (as such actions, y’know, help everyone).

According to usa.gov, some ways to help your country include donating to the American Red Cross, giving blood to a blood bank, buying T-bills, volunteering, or even working for the country.

Nothing there about saving money, though.

  1. Yeah…translation: There’s nothing more patriotic than spending money! Remember 9/11?

    And of course, that’s part of what got us into this financial/economic mess we’re in now.
