Today is the day after Thanksgiving commonly referred to as "Black Friday" the reason it's called Black Friday is because retailers make up for all the red ink they have accrued through out the year. Our government hopes we will all be out shopping till we drop. The marketers have done their best to train us just like Pavlov's Dog.
Our economy is based on 2/3 consumerism. Am I the only one, that thinks basing a huge economy on people buying crap is a really bad idea "Chinese Crap At That"? Something has got to give, when do we get back to our core values and morals, the reason for the season?
UPDATE: Hat Tip #PT "Bart Falcone"
When doing your holiday cards, take one and send it to this address: A Recovering American Soldier c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center 6900 Georgia Avenue NW; Washington, D.C. 20307. If we pass this on, think of how many cards these wonderful special people would get. Pass This On.
So This Is Christmas.......
