Everything Must Go?
And with headlines that read "Stock Market Plunges", "Dow Jones Down, triggering automatic freeze on selling", "Wall Street Dumping Stocks", "Asian, European Stocks Plunge", "NASDAQ suspends some listing rules", "Global Stocks Tumble", and and endless amount of stock market articles, it is enough to have me to wondering if the sky is falling and if the Wall Street New York Stock Exchange is having one of those everything must go going out of business sales with this roller coaster ride the stock market has been having in the news on a daily basis lately, seemingly during the same month as the changing of office of the presidential elections. And then what's up with that Uncle Sam guys name anyway. For what reason is he called Uncle Scam, I mean Sam. Does that internet bible dictionary Wikipedia have an entry for that? And then those 2012 on track doomsday images start coming to mind and that UPC bar code, social security number save no man that he may sell except he have the mark of the beast thing 666 anti christ thing appears in my conspiracy religious fanaticism thoughts again. What would Nostradamus, some prophet, guru, astrologer, numerologist and Alister Crowley have to say about this 777 stock market drop thing. And what does this all mean, if anything. Will there be no Christmas shopping ever again. Will the soup lines be for all now. And maybe everything could just be free in the world where no money is required. And maybe everyone could squat the world and live off the land for free. And whose idea is it that the land is for sale anyway, a basic necessity of human life. And for what reason does that word patriot have the word parent, traitor and riot in it. Or does it? And that National Debt Clock is broken and has ran out of numbers, the debt of something is so huge, so I read. And that verse from Timothy comes to mind again: "For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows". Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.
