on another day of chaos at the shops

This is the moment a two-year-old boy was rescued from a Kmart parking lot after he was abandoned by a shopper who left with a wide-screen TV--just one of the shocking incidents on a day of chaos on Black Friday yesterday. Anthony Perry, 35, of Springfield, Massachusetts was arrested for leaving the child unattended and he faces potential child neglect charges. Authorities found the child sleeping in Perry´s Nissan Venza in the Kmart parking lot and broke into the vehicle to get him out. The vehicle was towed and the child was taken to a hospital for a check-up.

You would think that this was a third world nation where people went without all year ´round except for Black Friday!
I fail to see what Victoria´s "Secret" really is when you see a mob that just can´t wait to get in there to buy nothing! There is no Black Friday deal good enough to expose myself to that chaos. Good grief! Pure gluttony on display! I am truly living in a world I don´t understand anymore. We are a lost nation of misplaced priorities.

I honestly would not go out on Black Friday even if they told me I would get it for free. I despise the crowds, the traffic, the rudeness, the noise and most of all the greed. I stayed home listening to all my favorite Christmas music, my favorite talk show hosts online and putting up my Christmas tree.

I have a tradition of staying home the Friday after Thanksgiving. I look forward to and really enjoy the day. There is no electronic gadget or anything else that could entice me to wait hours at midnight or 4 am. I do not shop on Thanksgiving day. I leave room for the people who like this sort of madness and they can have it.

Yesterday i was on my tractor shredding my pasture when a shear bolt broke on the shredder. I needed a 3 1/2 inch x 1/2 inch bolt so I went to our local Tractor Supply. We live in a small rural Texas town of 4500. Well that place was packed with folks buying everything from bags of feed to toy tractors and trucks. I figured that Tractor Supply wouldn´t be crowded on black Friday but I was wrong. Took me a half hour to get in and out with the bolt.

These are MASSACHUSETTS people, People! You know, the folks who overwhelmingly voted for Ted Kennedy and John Kerry year after year? The guy knew that the government would take the kid off his hands and find him a nice home in the foster care system. Presumably, the girl friend was agreeable. I´m sure he and his friend were able to get the TV loaded in a vehicle and safely home.

Semi-related.

Should really bad times come, say a massive earthquake in California--or just the continuation of the economic trajectory that we are on-- that drives hordes like this to YOUR home, one of the few stocked with food and a generator, this is what you can expect.

No care for someone trampled. Any hint of civilization tossed aside. Moronic hordes, emboldened by little fears of repercussions or the law, do exactly as they please. ( I wonder how much stuff walked out of the store?)

Be prepared if there is a disaster folks, and that includes a plan and weapons. If people are willing to do this during the "warmth of the holiday season", what do you think they will do when the economy collapses and they are hungry?

The big problem is the boxes for these flat screen TVs just don´t make as good of a crib as the CRT TV boxes did.

Classic decades old TV news spot about a poor family. Camera shows the family is so poor the baby has to sleep in the box for the new color TV. In that day the news guy actually had to guts to ask about the logic of their priorities. It would never be asked today.

The wife and I intended to "brave the crowds" to pick up my new glasses. We couldn´t find any crowds to brave.

The optometrist´s office is in a city of about 6,000. The Walmart parking lot was fuller than usual, but not horrible looking for Friday. The parking downtown was normal for Friday evening.

The traffic jam on the way home consisted of dodging raccoons, etc, in the road.

I´m glad I don´t live in MA.

George Clooney and Bill Murray, stars of The Monuments Men, have waded into the long-running row over the Elgin Marbles by saying Britain should hand the treasures back to Greece.

I have written before about the strange propensity of the Tory part of this Government to shoot itself in the foot. Quite often it comes down to basic political mismanagement, either in Number 10 or in Parliament, when routine business is not transacted properly. Tories complain that MPs or peers who might have been able to prevent a screw-up are not listened to. And while the machine has good people in it, it is prone to avoidable malfunctions. All of this is easy for me to say, of course. I recognise that it is easier to write about government being

The earliest footprints left by humans outside Africa have been found in estuary mud in Norfolk. Described as the most important discovery on British shores, the 800,000-year-old footprints were found in Happisburgh after being exposed by sea tides. Scientists believe the footprints are evidence of the earliest known humans in northern Europe, previously only revealed through the discovery of animal bones and stone tools. The footprint surface was exposed at low tide as heavy seas removed the beach sands to reveal a series of elongated hollows cut into compacted silts. Of the 50 footprints found, only around twelve were reasonably

Cash-strapped counties in six states are enrolling inmates in Obamacare health insurance plans as a way to shift costs to the federal government--a tactic that´s legal but frustrating for some Republicans who don´t want to see the success levels of President Obama´s signature law inflated artificially. In many cases jails are registering inmates so they´ll be better equipped to access addiction counseling and psychiatric care after their release, lowering the likelihood that they´ll return for more time behind bars. The Affordable Care Act prohibits the enrollment of full-time prisoners serving sentences, but many prisoners awaiting trial in prison jumpsuits are

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

BAGHDAD — A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said. The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

President Obama has broken many promises. One that he has not broken is his boast that he would "fundamentally transform America." He and his fellow Democrats are on the verge of doing just that by turning us into a nation of loafers. A loafer is an idle person who lives off others. Barack Obama seemingly has no problem with such people. He might even relate to them. He does have a serious problem with his own work ethic, and finds work boring. (snip) But Obama and his Democratic Party allies seem to be gleeful about the rise of the loafer class.
