Thanksgiving Rant

Boycott Black Friday!

The Turkey is not yet cold on the platter as people start to line up in parking lots.  The day of celebrating the family is laid aside so that Madison Ave. can have its way with you for the next month by putting carrots in front of already over-sated donkeys looking for a sale.  I refuse!

I refuse to buy ANYTHING tomorrow on principle.  I will not go near a mall, Wally-world (even though it is the closest grocery), I will not go on line on Monday to buy anything.  It is my one-person blow against the consumerism that is desensitizing our nation to the needs of people all over the world and even in our own nation.

Besides, our family will be celebrating Thanksgiving on Friday anyway.
