Black Friday on the Crazy Train!


The Prince of Darkness beckons you!

And who would be a better representative of this momentous day, other than Ozzie? The Prince of Darkness to promote this day. Come on out folks. Take your chances and board, ‘The Crazy Train,’ to shop on Black Friday!

Yes, I continue my rant. I can’t resist. I went to the Swap Shop on Black Friday. So, I’m not a legitimate, Black Friday, shopper. But I just had to get into the murky waters, of river rats, swarming to the malls.

Now, my son knows. I’ve given him the drill, “no yelling at bad driver’s,unless he’s driving. So, as is his custom, when he sees my tension rising because someone cut me off, etc; he touches my steering wheel and yells, “Moron!”

I go to the local Flea Market, to check out some things. I hate to pay full price for anything. And besides, I have a good friend, who works there. He lives solely from the proceeds, he brings in from selling things donated to him.

I  love the hunt that comes with looking for that certain thing, which is too ridiculous to buy at a retail store. Most people who go to bazaars and flea markets, know, it’s all about bartering.  I learned a long time ago, that people redecorate, and just get rid of things, which are in brand new condition. I’m not going to pay way more than an item is worth, just to say, “it’s new.” I don’t care about, “the story,” and I sure don’t care about impressing anyone.

Then the icing on the cake, confirmed every ill feeling I had about our new excuse to spend, Black Friday. I was watching the news, later. People trampling each other, and a woman, pepper sprayed a crowd, at a Walmart. Why? Oh, well, don’t you know? She had to get that X-Box. Well of course. Everyone, should have one. Honestly, I could have been watching, Wall Street, and the Occupy movement. It looked identical. Except in this case, a shopper sprayed other shopper’s. At least the 1%, stay at home with the $$$, until the chaos of the poor, greedy people, has subsided. While those in the media and marketing, who had created this blitz, probably sit back with their golden bowls of popcorn and watch in amusement. I’d think very similar to the gladiators, of old.

I watched with amazement, to see what greed, caused such actions. And it’s just this greed, which is the root of our problem in this country and in the world. The need for instant gratification. It’s not isolated to those in the top echelon of society. It all begins in the heart.

Yes, Ozzie was right. This is really, The Crazy Train! I’m sure not boarding. No one seems to notice, that, Black Friday, is just a new term, to turn this season into a ‘vampire holiday.’ It’s another ploy to get the people in red, to put them in the black! Playing right into their greedy hands.

Now, we also have, “Small Business Saturday.” Oh, great. Let’s not forget about those poor small businesses. Yes, it reminds me of my daughter. The other morning she came home at the wee hours and I was irritated.  She went to work and didn’t return. I knew she hadn’t worked 12 hours and I was concerned. “Mom, I was helping to set up so we could feed the orphans tomorrow. I would think you’d be happy about that!” Oh, here we go. A table-turning??? You think I can be manipulated that easy? I had to point out that I wished she were that considerate. If she was, she’d think about her own family and the turmoil she’s been causing. “Well, you better help with the orphans,” I said, because you may be standing out on a corner with a sign yourself!” Like everyone else, I pointed out, her priorities were a little messed up.

Now, these marketing strategies, seem to be working. All these people spending money we don’t have. Wait, last I heard, we were supposed to have a huge deficit. But then we have corporations, getting bailouts, only to turn around and declare bankruptcy. (Solyndra) All the corporate people probably helped the economy, by plugging it back in during their shopping sprees, this Christmas.

Now, I  think we need to use every day of he week, just to get that economy pumping again. I mean, if we’re going to be played, how about taking advantage of this, and guilt people into spending, for 7 days? We can really be tapped out by Christmas. Wonderful. And think about how much interest, the bankster’s can make from all the bankrupt people. Then when the bills come, which no one can pay, we’ll just increase the deficit. Yes, I definitely think we need to add some more incentives to spend.Ahh, the heart of man. Just persuade them to get the latest gadget. The ‘must have, for this season. And I love the fact that we’re supposed to actually feel sad, for those poor businesses.

How about, “Spend your unemployment, Sunday? Food Stamp gift cards, Sunday. Madoff, Get Out of Jail Cards, Monday. Bail out your favorite corporation, Tuesday.Repossess your purchases, Wednesday.Oh, and my favorite, “Bail Out an Occupy Wall Streeter, Thursday.

Yes, there are just so many opportunities to give.  And didn’t our Lord say, “It is better to give than to receive?” And I guess some people think, you should run people down to get that gift. Well, at this rate, “on the 12th day of Christmas, I’ll be eating my partridge in my pear tree.”

Oh, I am really starting to understand that the Lord was literal, when He said, “Peace on Earth, Goodwill, to all men.” Yep, that’s where I shop, and so will you, if you keep squandering. Hope you remember the real meaning of this occasion. That’s right….His name is Jesus! The reason for the season!

Stand for the truth!

Occupy Wall Street. Occupy America. Occupy the World! This is what we are called to do. To stand against darkness, in all its forms. People are sick and tired of being controlled.Being bullied. Hence, the Movement. We have allowed the pyramid to exist far too long. The labor being so mistreated and abused, just so the top echelon can hoard the wealth, through corruption and the laws they have purchased, which allow these practices.  And the 99%, just like the nation of Israel, in Egypt, are  waiting for Moses to shout, “Let my people go!”

Now, I don’t believe in any violence, to persuade people. It has never been successful. Jesus, was taken with violence, in the Garden of Gethsemane, and Peter, in his fear and anger, cut off the ear of a guard.

The words Jesus used, “Peter put away your sword! He who lives by the sword, shall die by the sword!” Yes, the sword. It has been used for ages as a means of getting the point across. Excuse the pun.

But, for the masses, who are growing, against greed and corruption, I can say, it’s having an impact, and it’s becoming more powerful each day. As I said before, just the fact that the media tries to marginalize,what is happening, is proof in itself, but if you need more, look at their latest mascot, David Duke.

Yes, I said, their mascot. The poster boy for racism and hate. Their sword. Now remember, how media is used, to manipulate people. Why else the focus on a proponent of everything evil? A KKK, member? And his slurs against the Jews, as his reasons for, preaching the merits of the OCW, movement? Does this repulsive man forget that many Jews, are part of the 99%? So are many Black’s,Hispanics Asians, Caucasians, etc. Please. This latest ploy by media should make it obvious, again, that OWS, is successful.

This guy is nothing but a double-agent for the other side. He is despised by almost all the public. The pyschological trick is that the ones backing him, hope we would all be so disgusted, we’d cut ties with the movement all together. “If they have someone like supporting OWS, I sure don’t want to be associated with it!” This is what the planned strategy is, to scare people off.

The 99%, does not include him. He’s in a class of his own And this is how he likes it. He hates people, which disqualifies him from a movement of unity. Now let’s dissect this latest effort, by media to turn people away from the gains on the fight on Wall Street.

I don’t know about you, but when I watch shows like Survivor, I always stop myself before getting to caught up in the ‘reality,’ scam. I ask, “Hey, if that guy is so hungry, why doesn’t he ask the camera crew for a sandwich?”

Yep, and that’s what most tend to forget, when they’re being mesmerized, by the drama. You need to stop and analyze. The media, is owned by the powers, which OWS, is protesting against, so why would it surprise anyone that they would use a person, like David Duke,  to promote a message?And of course he’s going to say he stands with us. And hey, who pays David Duke, to make his bizarre rantings? And why? Once again, the easiest way to make people feel repulsed and want to disassociate with the movement, is to shove someone like, him, out into the forefront, as a supporter of Occupy Wall Street. Exactly as they did, last week, with the woman in Los Angeles. Ranting against the Jews. Nice try. We’re not falling for this.

And now we see, once again, that some powerful people are running scared. To give media time to a white supremacist? This guy didn’t ever deserve 15 minutes of fame, let alone, another chance to rant.

Keep your eyes wide opened people! And just recognize that the power of the masses, is continually growing, and the more nonsense like this on radio and television, should tell you, to keep standing for truth!

Don’t Back Down!


Hey Occupy Wall Street, don’t be distracted and don’t fall for media focus on the negative.
This latest news about the woman in LA, spouting anit-semitic remarks, is just one more reason, that is being exploited to shine a negative light on the 99%.
We have real issues on the table and the proof is the pitiful attempts to discredit the whole movement.
This is enough to prove that this movement is scaring the movers and shakers into action.
The reports I had seen on FOX news, the other day, was ridiculous. Their attempts to portray the OWS people as dirty hippie, drug addicts, was beyond silly.
All it did was make me see, that OWS, is intimidating, the 1%, and I have to believe that it’s just going to grow.
Now, after reading this statement by the woman of ignorance, ranting against the Jews, I have to wonder, of all the people, why did they interview her?
I think it’s pretty incredible to see this many people organize in agreement in one place, let alone cities across the country, and even the world.
There is great power in unity and of course, those who would try to destroy this unity,must thrust a divisive person into the forefront.
It’s not going to work.
I had a union doing the same thing to our member, once. They kept telling us that “we need to stand together!” As they still tried in vain to lead all of us, with intimidation and scare tactics.
I responded, “Well, they’ve finally succeeded in bringing us all together, AGAINST THEM!”
The reports of the oddball, here and there, throughout this movement, (perhaps even plants), would only serve to strengthen the bond of the people.
I have yet to march, but I stand with the 99% and I’m ready. Why wouldn’t I?
This is historical and we are a democracy. This is the purest form of democracy.
We are the majority, injured by corruption. We are the ones who bring about change.
Now the Lord reminded us of our power, when we agree. He has spoken of this all through His word.
He spoke of this, same experience in Genesis, with The Tower of Babel. “If people agree, with one mind and one language, then nothing, that they seek to do, will be impossible to them!”
That’s right. One mind, and one language, is true unity.
And we have all the power of the universe at our disposal, with this one-ness!
Stay strong and Don’t Back Down!
