Black Friday

Why is it called "Black Friday"?  I don't know, perhaps because everyone goes out and buys lots of  made in China black plastic.

Speaking of which, who'd have an interest in a viral scare which closes small businesses but somehow keeps big, giant, mega stores open. Don't say Walmart, Amazon and Big Box Inc., after all, it's not as though they have some weird kind of financial influence over anything.

That in mind, I boycotted our Corporate Communist Overlords today and went to a small shop for a bottle of wine. I like the guys that run it and the wine they sell, a far better selection than anything you'd get at, say, the nearest Tom Thumb.

In other news, the Left is furious that SCOTUS overturned Cuomo's new edict restricting attendance at religious services. Freedom of worship isn't freedom, according to the ACLU. Cuomo, who hasn't told giant supermarket chains to limit the number of their customers, has told the world that SCOTUS' ruling has no "practical effect." And that's just it.

Imagine, if you can, an America in which the results of a massively fraudulent election were brought before the Supreme Court, which overturned the election after evidence of industrial scale vote rigging. At which point the guilty parties follow Cuomo's lead and say, so what. What happens then?

I'm not a gambling man, but I'll wager the ageing but still vicious monkey that things might get... messy.

Your Pal,

IIRC, Black Friday refers to profit. If your business is losing money you're in the red, if you're making a profit, you're in the black.

I was just watching the episode of "Band of Brothers" where they come upon the concentration camp. I have walked both the grounds of Dachau and the Eagle's Nest.

The wager this time around is all in. I agree, things could get messy in places. So be it. Tree of Liberty and all that. Some of the guilty rats are already jumping ship. It may become a rout. Bag limit?

Agree with RHT. If it comes, it's going to be very messy in the Big Cities.

Actually - black Friday is about the two investors who drove up the price of gold and caused a stock market crash in 1869. They try to keep that little factoid quiet.

I hadn't heard what Cuomo said about the SC's decision.

What a mess this has all become, LSP.

A lot of people will remain silent to avoid "messiness" aka civil war in the hopes the crisis will pass us by. I don't want messiness either but I don't think this crisis will pass us by. Not peacefully anyway.

Yep, 52% of sales supposedly occur after Thanksgiving, hence being in the 'black' for the year supposedly started on Friday after turkey day.

LSP said...

No limit, RHT.

I've never been to the KZs but I've heard it's eerie.

LSP said...

Let's hope it doesn't come, drjim, especially in the big cities.

LSP said...

Adrienne, we're in pretty much uncharted waters, I think. Will the Left be able to pull off a color revolution with the help of their globalist paymasters? Not a done deal, imo.

Thanks for the factoid.

LSP said...

I hope I'm wrong, Infidel, but I don't see it going quietly into the night. And the fault lies with the Left in their brazen lust for power at any cost. They're obviously gambling on the opposition having neither spine nor teeth. A safe bet, from their bubble. A significant fraction of some 80 million might disagree.

LSP said...

That's what I've always thought, NFO. Speaking of which, interesting to see the killer virus wiping out small stores while Big Box Inc. makes massive profits. Strange, eh?


Strategery. Close all the mom and pop stores, regardless of the product / niche. Then the big box stores (PRIVATE COMPANIES) - to whom you are a number anyway - can use the Big Tech (PRIVATE COMPANIES) social credit store to implement the policies that the Fascist Left wants but can't do without tearing off the mask.

LSP said...

But N, the STATE is the people :)

I guess that makes the FBI part of the vanguard of the revolution? Huh.
