Watching videos like this don't make me laugh, they actually just make me sad. I laughed when I watched the South Park Episode of "Black Friday", but seeing it first hand it's really just pretty sad.
TPTB Have created this matrix where we are constantly exposed to an onslaught of marketing ploys, one after the other after the other. It seems like everybody is just chasing the dollar, and If You ever speak out about how corrupted our monetary system is and ever attempt to expose the mental slavery that is taken place on us, you are ostracized from the group and completely shunned in some cases.
This video makes me sick, because there are people right now- probably even some of you who either have cancer, who are in dire circumstances financially, some of you who are mentally ill etc.. Maybe it's a family member, a neighbour , a friend, but we all have somebody we know out there who is in need. But it seems like we're living in a world where that's an after thought. Many of us make the next best toy we can buy our biggest priority around Christmas Time. It's no wonder the suicide rates are highest annually during Christmas, maybe because for some of us it's a lonely time, or maybe we've left this world make us feel like outcasts for not competing with all the rest of our friends, maybe we can't afford that brand new car for our teenager that our neighbour just bought his son.
I apologize if I'm coming across as cynical or If I'm rambling, I guess I'll get back on track here and just say Here's to hoping this Christmas we all remember the true meaning isn't about receiving so much that it becomes gluttonous and we lose sight of what it is to be truly grateful. Here's to hoping that This Christmas we're not going to play the stupid game, and blow all our money and drink the Koolaid to feel the false sense of euphoria.
Even a Christmas where you receive zero presents, a Christmas you spend in the company of only a few or alone is better If you know in your heart of hearts that one soul breathes easier because of a difference you made from them from the bottom of your heart.
You won't make Channel 5 News, Brad Pitt or Oprah Winfrey will be the ones getting all the media attention for the enormous charitable donations they make, but make no mistake about it. God knows your heart, and If you were to give , care and love unconditionally for someone ( it could even be a complete stranger) and you do something ground-breaking this Holiday season, God will acknowledge that and smile down on that. And when and only when we give like this will we know the meaning behind , "It's better to give than to receive"

Just my two cents

In my opinion, this is the root cause of everything wrong in the world today! I'm with you, I don't think it's funny. I just feel depressed when I see that this is what society has now become.

Bless your beautiful heart! Thank you for this. Don't be sad. You have a heart and a soul and a conscience. Rejoice!!! Wear it as a badge of honor!!! We desperately need more people like you. And I am very thankful for you and this post, because as long as there are people like you, there is hope for all of us.

Been there, done that.

Everyone has a need. Money is only good for what we can buy. Sometimes it's just a matter of showing someone that we care. LOVE.

For example: I know a young lady whose mother is a worthless %^*^%&* (and that's putting it nicely). I mother everyone, so I mother her extra, because that's what she desperately needs and wants. When she passed her GED recently, I didn't tell her "congrats," I said "I knew you had it in you! Yay! I'm so proud of you for getting it done. Now onto bigger and better things!!!" She needed to know that someone always knew she could do it, even when she didn't know it herself. She needs to know that this is just the beginning for her, that she can and will grow to do even greater things. She needs to know that someone is proud of her and rooting for her. This weekend, I'm going to pick up a tea-for-one set for her for Christmas. A whopping $5. I'll throw in some yummy teas too. Shipping will probably cost more than that! But she saw mine and really liked it. When she receives it, and every time she uses it, she will know that I remembered... that I cared... that I love her. Such a little gesture, but one that she'll always treasure. What a bargain.

I don't see cynicism. I see love. And it warms my heart.

Here's hoping your words are heard far and wide, and this is the year people learn how true it is. We all want to be loved. But even better is remembering that "love" is a verb and requires action on our part.

I wish YOU all that you wish for the world.

It's insane how even during this recession, consumer culture STILL rules our lives. I'm in a bad situation right now since I get paid on friday and I need to choose between buying presents for family members (who will be very upset with me if I don't) or paying my car bills. Christmas time ALWAYS makes me unhappy. Worst holiday ever.

I composed a thread about this very subject HERE.

If anything, the video shows how convoluted our priorities are in this nation. Instead of bolstering our children's lives with things they need, we resort to buying the cheapest, on sale garbage toys or gadgets just to make them happy. We are only spoiling ourselves and the future generation of "need-to-have-it"s.

I am disgusted that people act like this and will not associate myself with those who participate in this kind of debauchery. It is almost as if these people lost all their virtue, ethics and moral in a split second...all to get their grubby hands on an item that was probably the same price before that horrid day. We all know what companies do to drive business, are we that stupid to believe we are getting such a "great deal"?

Why not put forth the effort into something so much more productive and less violent. Perhaps visiting with the family instead of leaving early to shop? It is truly disheartening to see this behavior. Even worse when people or companies condone it.

Thanks for the reminder of how stupid cattle can be because that is what the video looks like. Cattle being driven to slaughter by hunger and a gate.
