Black Turkey

In Uncategorized on November 20, 2012 at 13:40

Aww the smell of mouth watering turkey, delicious homemade gravy, and the difficult question of who will get the last slice of pumpkin pie. Yep, it’s Thanksgiving already. One of our favorite holidays! A beautiful time to sit down to an amazing meal with the family and give thanks.

But while laughing with our loved ones and gnawing on a turkey leg, secretly we’re think of that big screen TV that’s about to go on sale in less than 24 hours. That glorious forty-inch flat screen with HD 3D eye retina high res who cares but we must have TV! And it’s 50% off! Or how about that X-Box deluxe gaming console/coffee maker your kids are nagging you about? It’s 40% off! Set the alarm, grab your rifle, and be the first one in line when those doors fly wide open. It’s black Friday. Why, just yesterday we were holding hands and giving thanks over a great big meal and today the real gobbling begins – gobble gobble those great bargains.

Now there is controversy over black Friday spilling into your actual Thanksgiving day, with some companies opening late Thursday evening. Once you’re finished scarfing down your meal, say good-bye to granny because it’s off to the stores. Poor workers who can’t even enjoy one day off for one of America’s biggest holiday. It’s straight back to work. So what’s worse: companies demanding their doors be open during Thanksgiving, or the demand in consumerism that drives the companies to do so, just to get that great deal? Shame on everyone! Sit down with your families and forget work and forget that glorious big screen TV with HD 3D  wifi touch screen capabilities, for just one day. Stop feeding your material hunger that ruins the earth and destroys families! Stop giving corporations incentives to destroy our humanity! And stop by Target on your way back from granny’s because that flat screen is going on sale for 60% with a surround sound theatre home system package deal. Yes! We love you Target!

* The X-Box/coffee maker does not exists but we hope so soon. What better way to entertain your kids and never get them out of the house.
