Some will mistakenly call me elitist for thinking our country is heading in the wrong direction. But I feel that black Friday is just another symptom of a huge problem our nation faces. Turning holidays into greedy shop-a-thons is NOT a positive way to help lower economic people afford all the things they want. Black Friday is a pathetic way businesses have created get rich schemes at the expense of what the holiday season is all about.
I am tired of those with greedy motives hijacking the holidays. And I think more and more people are feeling the same. I noticed on talk radio this weekend, and on Facebook that folks are echoing my sentiments. I am glad of that. I encourage more and more to speak out, talk with neighbors, write a letter to the editor of their local paper.
I am want my holidays back without all the crass meanness and all-out merchandising!
Christmas IS NOT about the bottom line of Walmart or Target. I could care less if those stores or others made the percentage of sales they forecast. Why should the holidays be made into the economic ladder between red and black? Why should the holidays be all about the business angle of how these types of stores operate? And then to have the news media play it up for all it was worth on Friday made me turn to computer scrabble. I just refuse to participate in the BS.
I am far more interested in the type of society we have. Or are failing to have.
This video is alarming, sad, and sickening.
