No Time for Nap Time

I've seen this on about three different occasions now and I'd like an explanation. Please. An explanation for what you ask? Why the latest soccer-mom abomination - dream catchers hanging from rear-view mirrors.

So… are you going to catch forty winks at the stoplight? Have a power nap in the Timmies drive-thru? Call me cynical, but I don't think the person driving that car has the slightest fucking clue what a dream catcher is or what it (supposedly) does. They probably picked it up at a novelty store, Pier 1 or some other clusterfuck trend-house establishment because the overworked, underpaid and equally cynical employee told them it was "all the rage".

Hasn't enough been done to fuck over the Natives? Mind you, the fact we bastardize their spiritual icons should come as no surprise to anyone who's seen a plastic Jesus dashboard caddy. The only thing worse than exploding spiritual beliefs to the point of fanaticism is trivializing them down to the point of kitsch.
