I went Christmas shopping yesterday, butt I didnt buy anything. All the hubbub and pandemonium seemed to interfere with my circuits rendering me incapable of completing any transactions. Just as well, as everything I saw looked unsuitable for human consumption.
I just couldnt get into the spirit of the season so I stopped to have a cuppa Joe and watch the world go by. What I noticed going by, other than inordinately tight jeans on both men and women was a lot of people toting big red bags from the American Girl store. I dont know if youre familiar, butt American Girl dolls represent every period in American history and come with their own story books (and wardrobes, of course).

Who is Pbama?
I remember Chuck Harder on his “For the People” program said that in the 1990’s up until he retired around 2009 or so where we’ve been declining since 1973. Robert J. Ringer, noted libertarian, made a good point in one of his news letters I subscribe to were the economic collapse was supposed to happen around 1985/90 but was delayed by President Reagan’s economic policies as well as the 1980’s computer boom that went into the 1990’s internet boom that lasted until 2007 or so.
