I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and if you ventured out into the dawn of Black Friday hopefully you did not encounter too many Occupy Black Friday antics. These people behind OWS appear to me as mindless sheep who have zero ambition to move from the barren little spot they’ve been grazing on for their entire lives. No ambition to simply try a new spot and find greater pastures. Instead, they would rather persecute all the others who do have the courage, ambition, and belief in themselves necessary to explore all of the proverbial pastures they choose.

Boycott Black Friday? Brilliant. It is common knowledge that when the federal government hikes taxes on big business or tightens up regulations, especially in an economy like this, people get laid off and the cost are simply passed on to the consumers. On a smaller scale of consumers boycotting big business, if the corporations are at too much of a loss, once again, jobs are lost and costs are raised.

"The idea is simple, hit the corporations that corrupt and control American politics where it hurts, their profits."

I hope somebody takes the initiative one day to collect as many of the names they can find to make a list of the people who are orchestrating all of this destructive, counterproductive behavior. If I ever start a small business in a post-Obama America I would be disappointed to learn that I may have hired an individual who was so completely disconnected with all reality and logic. I would be surprised to see a man or woman who has the time to sit in parks all day and to scream in streets all night at months at a time tell me that he or she is looking for a job and choosing to reverse their mindless, sheepish ways.

Many of these protestors are young and still trying to figure things out for themselves so there is certainly room for them to grow and to see what other pastures await them. But, these older, bitter, resentful, stubborn, relentless, America-hating sticks in the mud---shame on you.

Haven’t heard much about the Tea Party lately, but they took a stand against the Occupiers by holding a “BUYcott Black Friday”, encouraging consumers to spend as much as their pockets will allow. That sounds more like America.

"At a time when our economy is most fragile and ratings agencies are talking about another downgrade of the U.S. credit rating, it's completely irresponsible for Occupy Wall Street to attempt to bring the U.S. economy to a halt on the busiest shopping day of the year."

Tea Party Spokesman John Sullivan

712.7 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day88.
