If you want to take a moment to really see where the powers-that-be have their priorities this holiday season, just look at what is happening surrounding the Thanksgiving holiday. We have COVID-19 raging across America, worse in fact than it was at any point thus far. Now, in the latest amazing overreach of governmental power, some governors are taking the extraordinary step of limiting family gatherings for the holiday to ten people or less and even requiring mask-wearing in the home if people from other households are present.
But what about Black Friday, that holiday when people stand on top of each other, fighting even, to get the latest, greatest, insanely low-priced deal that all the major retailers are throwing out to feed the chaos?
Nothing. No recommendations. No closures. No cancellations. Black Friday is fine.
Money rules everything, and you see where major retailers are winning this one too. What kind of sense does it make that the virus is so dangerous that you can’t have Thanksgiving with your family, but it’s okay for thousands of strangers to mob the malls and department stores at midnight on Friday?
If lives were the point here, Black Friday would be completely shut down. It’s not, because the almighty dollar is more important than even a governmental power grab.
