What is called Black Friday in the retail industry has indeed earned its name today. Jdimypai Damour, 34, of Jamaica, Queens was trampled to death by a mob of Wal-Mart shoppers in Long Island, New York. Before he could even open the door they broke the door off its hinges and rushed in. Police had been called prior to the store opening because of the large crowds forming outside but were called away to deal with similar situations at other stores.
There is plenty of blame to go around in a situation like this. First you got to blame the idol worshiping culture in which we live. We are no different than the Jews of biblical times and while wondering through the wilderness for forty years took it upon themselves to worship the golden calf. Our fixation with money, toys and material goods is definitely a huge part in this tragedy today.
Next, you have got to blame the retail industry for creating such a day to begin with. Their whole intent was to create a such an atmosphere that people would feel compelled to shop or else miss out on the year’s best bargains. This Black Friday phenomenon is relatively new. As a kid growing up, people did go out shopping the day after Thanksgiving. It was more out of convenience than anything else. They had the day off so they figured they would use the day to get started on Christmas. But it wasn’t like this. The malls still opened at the same time. There were no 4am openings. People did not camp outside of the building all night. It was just a typical shopping day, no great significance was added to it. But the retailers got greedy and they started crunching numbers and they realized their biggest shopping day was the Friday after Thanksgiving. So what if they could capitalize on that? What if they could cause such a hysteria that people would come in droves? And that is what they did. While there is nothing wrong with drawing in customers there is something wrong with creating such chaos that people end up getting killed!
Of course, Obama is at fault. Not sure how, give me some time to figure it out but I figure if the liberals can hold Bush responsible for starting hurricanes, then I get to blame Obama for this. In the meantime, the liberal mentality is very much to blame for this tragedy. You can’t devalue human life in the womb and think it is not going to carry over outside of the womb. You can’t say you can kill if it is convenient for you and think that kind of mindset is not going to infiltrate your thought processes on how you treat born human beings. It doesn’t work that way. Because we have no regard for human life at the very beginning stages we have lost it for everyone around us. Jdimypai Damour was a man, a father, a brother, an employee. In fact this wasn’t his permanent job. They had hired him through a temp agency. He died for nothing. This wasn’t supposed to be a war zone. He wasn’t a soldier on the battlefield. He didn’t die trying to protect our freedoms, which at least would’ve gave his death some honor and valor. He died because greedy, selfish people caring more about possessions than a human being rushed over him. No one stopping, no one slowing down. No one checking to see if he was alright. And when employees came to his aid, they were simply pushed aside.
When the employees told them they had to leave because an employee was dead, all they did was yell that they had been waiting all night and they were going to shop! And so they continued to shop! This is the kind of cold-hearted barbarism liberalism gets you. I have been on this Earth for 38 years and it still astounds me how evil and wicked people can be. I am always flabbergasted by stories such as these because for the life of me I can’t understand such utter disdain for another person’s life. As much as Obama’s policies sicken me I would like to think if I saw him on the floor dying, I would still stop and try to help him. I surely wouldn’t climb over him for a toaster oven! Shame on you New York! You ought to be ashamed of yourself! And they wonder where they get the reputation of being uncaring people. Hmmm I don’t know!
