Black Friday, Thursday??

I don't understand Black Friday. But Black Friday is low on my list of things that I don't understand.

Let's start with Daylight Saving Time. How does one "save" daylight? If you want to get off work an hour earlier in the summer, why not work out a deal with your employer to go in to work an hour earlier? Why do we all have to go through it?

Monday holidays? When I grew up Memorial Day, Lincoln's Birthday, Washington's Birthday, and Columbus Day were all on certain dates. Now they are all on a Monday. It doesn't really matter, most people can't tell you why any of those days are celebrated anyway.

Now for Black Friday. Driven by the need to help China produce and sell goods, the retail powers have moved Black Friday to Thursday. Really?? First, this messes up the holiday for retail workers. Second, it affects businesses such as restaurants, that have traditionally enjoyed busy days on Black Friday. Nobody is out now on Friday. They were up late on "Black Friday Thursday", now they are sleeping late.

Maybe some large retailer will have the guts to break from the pack on Black Friday. What if just one large retailer starts advertising "Black Friday on Friday"? They could tell their customers to enjoy the holiday, visit with family and friends, and then come to the store at 7:00 AM on Friday.

The sad thing about all of these people whipping themselves into a frenzy about "Black Thursday Friday" is that there will still be plenty of sales before Christmas. Retailers want to sell it ALL by Christmas. If you don't buy it on "Black whatever Day", it will be on sale again before Christmas. You won't have to wait in line to buy it.

What did I do about this? I voted with my feet. First, I did not leave the house on Thanksgiving Day. Then today, I left the house at 7:30 to go to Lowes to pick up a new toilet fill valve and to see what they had on sale. When I got there, they had free donuts and coffee. I bought my $10 fill valve and then another $260 in Black Friday deals. I rewarded Lowes for being closed on the holiday. Thanks, guys!!

Greedy Stupid Lawyer

This just in !!!!

When you thought that it just couldn't get any worse, you find out that you are wrong.

In Gulfport, Mississippi, attorney Paul Newton Jr. is suing Popeye's because they did not include a plastic knife in his dinner box. According to his lawsuit, Mr. Newton was then forced to eat the chicken by picking it up and biting into it. He choked on the chicken and needed emergency surgery. Does he not know that you are supposed to chew your food? Can you trust a guy this stupid with a plastic knife? What if he slashes his wrists? 

First, this guy takes any idea that lawyers are greedy and stupid to heights never seen before. Billions of times a year, people pick up a piece of fried chicken and eat it. A small child can do this and millions do everyday. Ever seen a kid with a chicken leg??  Apparently, Mr. Newton lacks the physical skills to pull this off. Where did this guy learn to eat? Does he bite a banana or just shove it down his throat? Watching him wrestle corn on the cob must be some kind of family fun fest.

Second, this guy has no pride, no ethics, no brains. Who will be his next target? Will Krispy Kreme have to include knives and forks with donuts?? Will Baskin-Robbins have to give you a spoon with your cone?? Will pizzas come with steak knives and forks?

This guy should be barred from any event where "finger food" is being served. He should not be allowed to buy potato chips or Fritos. I would suggest that he become a vegetarian, but he would probably sue me when he chokes on a corn cob. How does this moron eat a sandwich?

The court should dismiss this suit based on the fact that Mr. Newton is obviously mentally incompetent and move to have him disbarred.

Who wants this guy as their lawyer??

Is Huma Abedin a Saudi spy??

While you are waiting for game 7 to start in the World Series, here are a few points to ponder.

There are reports that Huma Abedin had 650,000 emails on the computer she shared with her pervert husband. Who has 650,000 emails archived and forgets about it??  Huma claims that she does not know how they ended up on a laptop in her home that she claims belongs to her estranged (or just strange) husband.

An even better question is, Why does anyone have that many e-mails archived? Are they all about Chelsea Clinton and yoga lessons?? Are they all updates from Hillary about her granddaughter?

I am not much of a conspiracy theorist, I still think that Oswald killed Kennedy. Huma Abedin was an intern at the White House working for the First Lady, Hillary. She was with Hillary at the State Department and has been her assistant during the Presidential campaign. Her wedding to the Weiner King was officiated by Bill Clinton, former President. he has been a close member of Clinton's staff for twenty years.She has enjoyed access to the highest levels of American government.

Is Huma Abedin a Saudi spy??  If not, why is she archiving a mountain of Hillary's e-mails?? Look at her career path. This is how the most successful spies have worked throughout history. They work their way into the system. Maybe Weiner knows if she is a spy. I would hate to be him. He is likely to kill himself or die in a freak accident any day now.

Turn on the news and watch as Hillary, woman of compassion, throws Huma Abedin under the bus. Maybe those 650,000 e-mails were Huma's life insurance policy??

You heard it here first!!
