It's Friday and The Question Is.........

I know that it's Friday, but this week I am going to share with you one of my shames.  I love watching Shark Tank and it's Canadian version Dragon's Den.  Basically, both shows involve small business owners getting the opportunity to approach multi-millionaires, and in the case of the U.S version, multi-billionaires about investing in their companies.  Every time I watch, I know I am totally buying into the bullshit lie that meritocracy works, and that capitalism is good for people.  Every bone in my body says that this show promotes everything I think is wrong with the system, and yet I am still watching it.  I finally had to borrow a page from LaToya Peterson's book and say, fuck it I like it.  What show are you watching that you simply have to say fuck it I like it?
