The two year-old abandoned in

Black Friday: Sad images of police
rescuing child from Kmart parking lot
on another day of chaos at the shops

This is the moment a two-year-old boy was rescued from a Kmart parking lot after he was abandoned by a shopper who left with a wide-screen TV--just one of the shocking incidents on a day of chaos on Black Friday yesterday. Anthony Perry, 35, of Springfield, Massachusetts was arrested for leaving the child unattended and he faces potential child neglect charges. Authorities found the child sleeping in Perry´s Nissan Venza in the Kmart parking lot and broke into the vehicle to get him out. The vehicle was towed and the child was taken to a hospital for a check-up.

You would think that this was a third world nation where people went without all year ´round except for Black Friday!
I fail to see what Victoria´s "Secret" really is when you see a mob that just can´t wait to get in there to buy nothing! There is no Black Friday deal good enough to expose myself to that chaos. Good grief! Pure gluttony on display! I am truly living in a world I don´t understand anymore. We are a lost nation of misplaced priorities.

I´ve been out a couple of years ago to buy an Xbox for son. I made sure I showed the same character then as I do every day. shudder! I don´t go out now. Nothing is worth this chaos.

I honestly would not go out on Black Friday even if they told me I would get it for free. I despise the crowds, the traffic, the rudeness, the noise and most of all the greed. I stayed home listening to all my favorite Christmas music, my favorite talk show hosts online and putting up my Christmas tree.

I have a tradition of staying home the Friday after Thanksgiving. I look forward to and really enjoy the day. There is no electronic gadget or anything else that could entice me to wait hours at midnight or 4 am. I do not shop on Thanksgiving day. I leave room for the people who like this sort of madness and they can have it.

Yesterday i was on my tractor shredding my pasture when a shear bolt broke on the shredder. I needed a 3 1/2 inch x 1/2 inch bolt so I went to our local Tractor Supply. We live in a small rural Texas town of 4500. Well that place was packed with folks buying everything from bags of feed to toy tractors and trucks. I figured that Tractor Supply wouldn´t be crowded on black Friday but I was wrong. Took me a half hour to get in and out with the bolt.

These are MASSACHUSETTS people, People! You know, the folks who overwhelmingly voted for Ted Kennedy and John Kerry year after year? The guy knew that the government would take the kid off his hands and find him a nice home in the foster care system. Presumably, the girl friend was agreeable. I´m sure he and his friend were able to get the TV loaded in a vehicle and safely home.

Should really bad times come, say a massive earthquake in California--or just the continuation of the economic trajectory that we are on-- that drives hordes like this to YOUR home, one of the few stocked with food and a generator, this is what you can expect.

No care for someone trampled. Any hint of civilization tossed aside. Moronic hordes, emboldened by little fears of repercussions or the law, do exactly as they please. ( I wonder how much stuff walked out of the store?)

Be prepared if there is a disaster folks, and that includes a plan and weapons. If people are willing to do this during the "warmth of the holiday season", what do you think they will do when the economy collapses and they are hungry?

The big problem is the boxes for these flat screen TVs just don´t make as good of a crib as the CRT TV boxes did.

Classic decades old TV news spot about a poor family. Camera shows the family is so poor the baby has to sleep in the box for the new color TV. In that day the news guy actually had to guts to ask about the logic of their priorities. It would never be asked today.

The wife and I intended to "brave the crowds" to pick up my new glasses. We couldn´t find any crowds to brave.

The optometrist´s office is in a city of about 6,000. The Walmart parking lot was fuller than usual, but not horrible looking for Friday. The parking downtown was normal for Friday evening.

The traffic jam on the way home consisted of dodging raccoons, etc, in the road.

I´m glad I don´t live in MA.

Massive fire in Gibraltar shuts down

A huge fire in Gibraltar, caused by a fuel tank explosion, shut down many online betting services and disrupted gamblers during a busy day of sport. Residences near the blaze were evactuated following the fire, which broke out at around 1pm local time. The explosion occurred at Gibraltar´s main power station and the fire shut down much of the area´s electricity. Thousands of residents and tourists were left without power while firefighters battled the blaze. The fire was eventually brought under control at around 4.30pm local time. A Gibraltar Government spokesman said: "The fire is under control and there are no casualties

Immortalised in Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s poem about the “valley of death”, the Charge of the Light Brigade is remembered as one of the most glorious defeats in British history. The documents overturn much of the established wisdom of the battle and provide clues as to how the calamitous attack, during the Battle of Balaclava, in the Crimean War, came to be accidentally launched. [Snip] The charge saw the light cavalry mount an assault into a valley flanked, on three sides, by Russians. Lord Raglan, overall commander of the British forces, had intended to send the Light Brigade to pursue and

What stops the Earth from looking like Pluto is energy from the Sun. The quantity and type of energy coming from the Sun varies over cycles that range up to 1,500 years long. The cycle we can see with our own eyes, in our own lifetimes, is the sunspot cycle that is normally eleven years long. [Snip] It has become established—for those who are willing to look at the evidence—that climate will very closely follow our colder Sun. Climate is no longer a mystery to us.

Of all the many absurdities of the great climate change non-crisis which has been pointlessly obsessing our planet this last three or four decades, surely the most egregious is this: global warming is good. No really, it is. As a few bold heretics--such as Australian geologist Ian Plimer in his book Heaven And Earth--have long been trying to tell anyone prepared to listen, the human species is designed for warmth not cold. Ice ages are something we should naturally fear; warming periods are something which for which we should yearn. All the historical evidence confirms this--that periods of warming

With her twinkling eyes and beaming smile, it is hard to believe Her Majesty will mark her 88th birthday tomorrow. This portrait of the Queen, taken by celebrated British photographer David Bailey CBE, was released today ahead of the occasion. It shows the monarch smiling at the camera - while donning a pearl necklace, earrings and a brooch. Her jewellery is accompanied by a simple dress by Angela Kelly, who has served as the Queen´s personal assistant and senior dresser since 2002. The black-and-white photograph was taken at Buckingham Palace in March and commissioned on behalf of the Government´s GREAT

At least six Birmingham schools accused of harbouring a Trojan horse plot run by Muslim fundamentalists will be placed under special measures by Ofsted. The action is understandable. The unsubtle attempts to insert Islamist ideas--representing an extremist, politicised form of Islam--into the curriculum of those schools makes for frightening reading. Equally unsettling was the liberal establishment’s failure to correct it. According to a special report by the Education Funding Agency, radical Muslims have tried to take control of teaching by first taking control of school governorships. Excellent head teachers were either reduced to the status of figureheads or forced out

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
