Buy American and help our economy this holiday season!

Hey Tea party folk & Occupy individuals, you are mad I get it but stop. Why? It is the holiday season and that is motivation enough to get a better attitude, there are a lot of people in the world who have it way worse. This is a great time to make a difference for a lot of people here. How? Well start buying American? Research it instead of whining. Take the time, you have the internet somewhere no matter what you financial or job status is at the moment, seriously there are free computers in libraries which, when I last checked are still free and have a lot of resources that are helpful.

If corporate is so bad then, don’t shop there this year, and really do it. Look around your community you probably have all sorts of businesses who would love your $. Hairdressers, tailors, photographers, makeup artists, boutiques, car detailers, car washes, auto parts dealers, manicurists, massage or spa service providers, restaurants, antique dealers, tutors, bookstores (which are almost extinct) jewelers, screen printers, landscapers, window dealers, fashion designers, shoe designers, tattoo artists, painters (house and other types), assistants, baby sitters, gardeners, housekeepers, pest controllers, general contractors, and zoos in your area and the list goes on...

And they are all local and all would love your business no matter what part of America you are in, so stop bitching and killing people who open doors on Black Friday so you can spend money, to get some other country rich, just for a short rush of buying something. I think we would all like to NOT hear about a trampling death this holiday season.

Or if you don’t mind the made in “somewhere else” then go to the thrift stores, the guilt is gone and people do get rid of a lot of good stuff there you just have to look and you are usually helping out a non-profit and our economy. That, and it is fun. Oh, and if you find yourself arguing this whole thing I just typed out, then stop. Count back from 10 slowly and ask yourself why is it I have to go to, “that place” to buy a flat screen, MP3 player, socks, underwear, plates, or anything else and keep asking until you find an answer.

In the meanwhile, there is always the “you can always make something” option, it really is best gift of all but who am I kidding, even if we wanted to do something like this, most of us don’t know how. Of course if you want to make the biggest holiday gift of all do a sub for Santa program or help the troops with your holiday budget, they have families to and they really deserve it the most.

So, if you want to have that opening-up-a-big-package-under-the-tree-feeling, put the small item in a giant box (bought locally, of course). Seriously, the minute your loved one sees a giant box with their name on it they will be so happy, they will get to burn off adrenaline to open and unwrap it, and afterward you can hang out in it & watch a holiday program on TV. Seriously, when is the last time you hung out in a big cardboard box in your living room?

Happy Holidays!

Too Perfect

“Sometimes sorry doesn’t cut it.” I think most of us have all heard that at least once in our life usually in a tone of exhaustion and frustration; most of the time it is over something benign. I still can’t believe that a certain professional athlete is even bothering to give an apology that he obviously doesn’t mean (seriously he looked like a robot reading it and someone else wrote it). I still can’t believe that anyone cares, but they do. He was just too perfect, handsome, incredibly talented, well dressed, polite and clean. You never heard about him doing anything bad, until this. Of course it blew up in his face but then again he didn’t have much of a choice, he had to dwell in a very white world and he couldn’t scare and intimidate them especially since he was so good at something there were known for, so he became faultless and he was good at it. They and we loved him for it and he got put on the pedestal that we as a society love to put people on and he finally fell like they always do.
Like all lottery winners he didn’t think of the dark side of winning and there is one and because it is a slow news time the whole thing has grown and grown, oh how I wish there was some kind of chemo for things like this that get out of control. It is none of our business what he does, or who he does all of this is between him and his wife. The mistresses are dumb and what do they expect; not to mention that getting involved with someone so famous and powerful comes with its own price, “Be careful what you ask for you might get it.” Maybe instead of asking for $ and apologizes they should go away so they don’t look anymore pathetic than they already do, since the guy does have kids and he should direct his money and energy to them and no one else.
If you as a person look up to athletes, actors or any other famous person you are screwed up. These people don’t do shit but play pretend or throw a ball around. They aren’t heroes, they are over paid clowns who perform for our enjoyment. I really hope the news will get back to real world news, since people die every day in vain for a lot of serious things and a bunch of skanky idiots and a guy who is all too human aren’t history breaking and are only good for an episode of cheaters.
