How Can People Justify Wasting Food

Walking through walmart today, saw a pack of ground meat and steak sitting on a shelf. The shelf was in the canned goods section, and not the cold foods section.

I picked up the meat, checked to see if it was still cold, then took the two packs to the freezer section.

Is this what humanity has come to, that we can waste enough meat that would feed a family for a day, maybe 2 days, or even 3 days?

The person that left the packs of meat on the shelf, have they gone hungry a single day in their lives?

The person that left the meat on the shelf, were they on food stamps or welfare?

Did the person give a single thought to the animal that had to die to put the meat on the shelf?

What about the cost of raising the animal? The cost of butchering, packing and shipping the meat, did the person give a single thought to all of that?

Thanksgiving and Black Friday

Its difficult to believe the end of November is almost here, and the end of 2012 is drawing near. Where did 2012 go? It seems that the older I get, the faster time flies by.

For Thanksgiving dinner, my wife, my daughter and I are going to my mom and dads house in Bridge City. My uncle might be there, my brother has to work, but he might drop by.

We will probably have the traditional Thanksgiving dinner with turkey, dressing, ham, pie,,,, along with all of the fixings.

The end of November is a great time for Thanksgiving. The year is drawing to an end, its time to look bad, reflect, and give thanks for what we have. In todays economy, a lot of people are lucky to have a roof over their head and food on the table. Some people are not so lucky or blessed.

After eating with mom and dad, my wife, daughter and I will probably head back to Jasper to get ready for Black Friday.

The Walmart in Jasper Texas has certain items that will go on sale at certain times, and at certain locations in the store. There is a map on the walmart website that can be printed out to show where the items will be at.

Instead of there being a mad rush for the items, its first come first serve. If you want the item, get the map, go to the marked location in the store. There will usually be some tape on the floor designating where the line for the item starts.

Worse Yet to Come for United States Markets

Kevin Felts political commentator

Think things are bad now? Lets just wait a few more months.

The Federal Reserve is talking out printing more money out of thin air, think of post World War I Germany and hyper inflation.

Wheat prices approach a 22 month high, pushed up by failed wheat crops in Russia.
Banks not selling foreclosed homes – their hoping to hang onto the homes so that when the market improves, the homes can be dumped for a better price then the banks can get right now. This will cause home prices to drop even more, or to stagnate. Which is good for the average working people, maybe we will be able to buy a home then.

  • Walmart has rolled back its rollbacks.
  • Food prices have reached a 2 year high.
  • JP Morgan post third quarter 2010 net income of $4.4 Billion – for banks to be making money, that means other people are losing money.
  • China still have most favored nation trade status.
  • We still have the income tax.
  • The Federal Reserve is still in control of the American economy.
  • The 2 major parties still hold power over congress.
  • Companies in several states are being accused of foreclosure fraud.

Everything in that list is based off the bottom – the 2 major parties are still in power. If you want real change in this nation, your going to have to vote different, and that means voting for someone besides Democrat or Republican.
