In-your-face stuff from an opinionated

Well said! Spot on! Our society is based on consumerism at all costs to anything. Moral behavior be damned! You also hit it on the head on what would happen if it came to a loaf of bread, a gallon of milk, etc.Whew, get your house in order America! The supply of needs vs wants will make a stampede at Wal Mart for the latest large flat screen look like child's play. What is the estimate of time it will take to empty store shelves w/ an interruption of supply. Within a week for everywhere. Less in the metro areas. America, you think Ferguson was bad? Riots elsewhere? You ain't seen nothing yet.... Heres is why there are "preppers"! Let the liberals laugh. They won't be laughing then!
And to think......they vote.A. McSp.
"Our society is based on consumerism"All societies are based on consumerism. The only people who do not work at jobs that provide goods and service are government workers and I don't believe for a second that we can all work for the government. Every year the media highlights the dozen or so black friday fiascos and ignores the tens of thousands of stores where employees earn money to support their families selling goods made by employees who earn money to support their familes and no one does anything to be singled out for balck friday show and tell. This is nothing more then competition to sell products that people want. What is the difference between selling something in a Walmart or selling beer mugs? Are there stupid people doing stupid things? Sure and if your entire focus in on them you will miss the millions of people doing good things. Your choice.
In contrast to A. McSp.'s comment … I didn't see any media coverage of people lined up to vote; there wasn't any need for coverage because there weren't any long lines of people clamoring to get into the booth, to exercise a right and a duty.Of course, I'm heartily saddened by people that would cut short a celebration of Thanksgiving, cut short their time with friends, family and God to go buy cheaply made stuff, mostly for themselves.sidetracksusie
Oh contrair sidetracksusie! There were lines this time and the people did vote a bit better than before. You are right in that the media does not cover lines at the voting booth but there are. Some have to wait for an hour or more. FOX news did some on this but not enough. That said, it is disheartening to see so many miss the importance of Thanksgiving. It has become turkey day, and Christmas is just an excuse to buy something. We have left God out of the picture entirely as a nation. We will regret leaving God! He never leaves those He loves though! May all have a blessed Christmas this year. Celebrate the baby Jesus come to save the world! "That's what Christmas is all about Charlie Brown!" - Charles Shultz
