Happy Pictures of Cats before words about stupid humans. Look at these pictures, then read about the idiots and unfortunates. It is no wonder that some people actually like animals more than people. Sometimes people just suck.
People are stupid. Proof? Look at the news today. Two instances of deaths during black Friday shopping. One man at a Walmart in Valley Stream Long Island, A temp just looking to make a few bucks extra was trampled to death by an impatient crowd. Stepped on by hundreds of people. Think about that for a second. Would you just ”step on” someone who was laying on the ground in a store? The door they passed through was, by one account I read, “Crumpled like an accordion”. The police who were trying to assist the man when they showed up were themselves jostled. Heartless. Brainless. Gutless. Inferior, less than human, everyone who did that. Undeserving of the name Human.
Two others were shot to death at a Toys R Us in Palm Desert, California. In this incident, two women were bickering, and were with their men, and they pulled guns and a bloody battle to the death ensued. It is unfortunate that these two men died, but more fortunate that no one else was injured or killed. Gang Related? A possibility, Police said that it appeared that the incident was not shopping related, despite its location.
What kind of people go to a toy store armed? What kind of people are that berserk over crap that they would crush a door and kill a man to get some cheap crap that no one really needs? What kind of assholes are being raised in this country? Where, pray tell, is the humanity? Thankfully these were the only two events, but that doesn’t excuse or forgive the stupidity here. There were two spots where these things happened and three deaths at these two spots and it is exactly two spots and three deaths too many.
Don’t people realize what they are doing? This is for Christmas gifts. Christmas. Remember what that is supposed to be about? The Birth of the Prince of Peace? Remember him?
Apparently not. Read about the unfortunates here.
In Other News, Gm is being a bunch of assholes.
Dammit, I’m running late. A Viddy, A few quotes, and I am done.
Today’s Viddy is from This morning on Bloomberg Television, questioning the credibility of Opec amongst other things.
That’s about it for me. Later!
Today’s Nuggets, Via Wikiquote: Be courteous to all, but intimate with few; and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation. George Washington
Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it; no constitution, no law, no court can even do much to help it… What is this liberty that must lie in the hearts of men and women? It is not the ruthless, the unbridled will; it is not the freedom to do as one likes. That is the denial of liberty and leads straight to its overthrow. A society in which men recognize no check on their freedom soon becomes a society where freedom is the possession of only a savage few. Learned Hand
