It's obvious why this was delayed. We even saw big business "pleading" to biden to delay it a couple of weeks ago...why you ask? It's all about taking more of our hard earned money at a much higher inflated price now.

I'm not here to tell anyone what to do this holiday, that's not my place. But please, if you are buying gifts this year, make sure it's purchased through your local mom and pop stores and that the product is American made. Big business makes a fortune every year during the shopping sprees that happens during the holiday season. This would be the ultimate Let's Go Brandon slap in the face to them.

I have a post on this on on patriots. win. I worked for one of these evil companies, so I know exactly what is going on. This is all about stock performance and holiday retail results. The best thing we can do is everything in our power to make Amazon and Walmart stocks tank. Here are some ideas:
.
Give trips or restaurant gift cards for presents. Buy from small businesses. By less gifts.. Buy your gifts as early as possible if you absolutely have to. Buy expensive things and return them. Do a sick out if you are fulfillment center worker or truck driver. By pushing this mandate to January, they want their retailer Christmas cake, and to eat their vaccine mandate too.. Don't let them!

I stopped shopping at Amazon months ago. Also stopped buying anything Made in China (hard, but doable and very psychologically rewarding). Also stopped paying with debit / credit, using cash only at as many local establishments as possible.

It's been very eye opening in a lot of ways, the biggest two I can think of is 1) I'm saving a lot of money by being forced to deliberate on purchases and forego instant gratification (Dave Ramsey 101) 2) I'm getting to interact with local merchants, many of whom end up being based Patriots, and a couple of which have given me significant discounts for using cash.

Once you see the economics of THIS particular arm of the Enemy's assault, it's impossible to unsee. They've been planning the economic destruction from within since the 1990s (at least).

Made in USA, local merchants = winning big through a thousand small cuts.

Also, lots of church bazaars with homemade and other nice things in November and early December. No money to big business.

Better yet, craft stuff yourself. This last year I 3D printed something different for everyone on my list.

That's cool! Not everyone has time for crafting though or a 3d printer. I like helping the churches.

Starseed 1 point ago +2 / -1

No time for crafting? I find that a bit hard to believe. As for not having a 3D printer? Totally understandable. Idk about your area but my local library has 3D printers for public use. You should ask your librarian if thats the case for you guys

Have a little empathy, please. I know parents who work all day and spend their spare time with their kids, as they should, people who work overtime and have little time for anything. Or maybe they'd rather have other hobbies.

I don't do a lot of crafts now because I have arthritis in my hands.

My local library doesn't have a 3d printer.

Why are you demanding that other people do crafts?

Starseed 3 points ago +3 / -0

Im not demanding anyone do crafts? Lol all i said was that i dont buy the "no time for it" excuse. Cause you could be doing it instead of arguing with a stranger on the internet. Idk how i could have put that in a nicer tone.

GDZeus 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yes! My friend does this. Sometimes she asks me if I want to make some shirts or bags (I have a printer that prints transfers & heat press) to sell with her at her booth, but I hate jumping through hoops to pay sales taxes afterwards. I’ve been tempted to sell some stuff on FB marketplace but my husband doesn’t want me meeting people to give them what they bought because he’s been hearing people are getting robbed doing this. He’s in LE so ... and he is not a fan of going to do this because it pisses him off when people don’t show up or try to bargain after the price was set. I would never go meet a stranger like that without him with me, and you bet your ass he will be carrying. So if I do decide to make some items to sell, I may opt for shipping.

Let's make this the 'new normal' and hope to correct a lot of the financial tragedies of the lockdowns and put corporate America back in its place at the same time.

It will take discipline, and a sacrifice of a lot of the glamorous crap you want and just have to have. Victims of commercial advertising will hurt the worst.

Maybe we simplify our lives in the process?

Already replied above, but yes, it simplifies life enormously. Electronics and stuff are the biggest difficulty I've come across, but as a result I'm buying higher quality products with (assuming) a much longer lifespan.

I was getting TIRED of $50 wireless headphones that break along predesigned engineered fault lines, lol.

plus, New testing is being rolled out by the CDC December 1st.

they actually isolate covid/corona so it wont pick up the flu or bad colds

covid will drop by like 500% and they will say the vaccines and mandates worked so we dont need them anymore

Maybe, Dave says this all the time on X22. But I'm dubious as if they do this their whole C19/vax narrative goes kaput.

Hard to push the fear factor on something that essentially vanishes. Don't get me wrong, I'm hoping for the best with this new test but not holding my breath.

Give the gift of experiences:

Do they like to golf? Give them a gift certificate to golf somewhere nice.

Do they like to cook? Cooking classes are a lot of fun.

Do they want to learn a skill? Look to see if your community college offers a class.

Are they going on vacation? Are you aware of any experiences they'd like to do there?? Maybe book a guide and let them pick.

If they're living week to week pay their mortgage for a month -- or electricity bill.

Give them a GME or DWAC stock. :)

Shop local. If you can afford it have the meal catered and help a local business.

There are a lot of great things you can do that doesn't benefit big corp. What are your ideas??

Who has money to spend on that faux holiday?

5
Starseed 5 points ago +6 / -1

Its not a faux holiday, cmon. Its just been corrupted like everything else God gave us. Christmas has become focused around the wallet and not Christ. MAKE CHRISTMAS CHRISTIAN AGAIN!

2
ThePowerOfPrayer 2 points ago +3 / -1

It most definitely is. December 25 was the birthday of the sun god and "Christmas trees" are condemned by the Bible.

Jeremiah 10:3-4

3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.

4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

Many people celebrate Christmas by observing all the pagan traditions which were practiced since before Christ was even born.

Ever hear of Lent? That is how the Alexandrians (whose practices were later absorbed into Catholicism) incorporated the "Weeping of Tammuz" as highlighted in the book of Exekiel into their paganized version of Christianity.

Ezekiel 8:12-14

12 Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, the Lord seeth us not; the Lord hath forsaken the earth.

13 He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do.

14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.

On Ash Wednesday, the priests draw what is referred to as a cross on the foreheads of those who attend the service. In ancient times, that cross represented Tammuz, so it was easy to incorporate this pagan tradition.

Yahweh revealed to Ezekiel that sun worship was an even greater abomination than weeping for Tammuz.

Ezekiel 8:15-16

15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.

16 And he brought me into the inner court of the Lord's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.

So believe what you want to believe, but be aware of what it is you're actually observing. These people in ancient times who worshipped the sun also sacrificed their children to Baal.

Many religions absorb practices of those before it. It helps bring those from the old religion to the new when they see it's not so different.

And if you work for one of these big businesses that pushed off the mandates to extort you for your unvaxxed labor before they cut you next year when they need to cut labor anyways, consider leaving them high and dry for a based company sooner than later. Cut them before they cut you. Alternatively waiting to be fired has benefits too. You decide. I wouldn’t wait, I have a family to feed and I would LOVE to leave these assholes high and dry before black friday.

In 2019, our family (12 adults, 4 kids) decided we would draw names for the next year and each only have one gift to be responsible for outside their immediate household. The gift had to be homemade or from a thrift store or garage sale. It was a lot of fun. The weekend before Christmas, we had an early dinner, played games and did our gift exchange before drawing names for next year (this year). Gifts ranged from handmade quilts to steampunk lamps to framed photos to vintage dessert plates to home brewed beer to a homemade apple press for Grandpa. The kids really enjoyed making gifts. This way the parents of the kids still had their Christmas mornings at home without all the extended family to worry about, it took off a lot of pressure for everyone and the gifts were one of a kind.

Without going into the greed of stock performance and higher prices due to "supply chain problems", Amazon automatically tacks on 25% - 45% markup on products that go straight into their pockets. Almost all products can be found at other on line retailers for less. Period.

I will do everything I can to make sure they never recover from this one. They basically said "Can you just please wait to kill them after the big Holiday spending season?"

Gee, it must be nice to live in a place where there are mom and pop stores still. I have a lot of llanteras around me that are family owned. And there are a couple of carnicerias. Guess it's old tires and tripe for everyone. Or I could go to Tempe or Scottsdale, some family tourist traps are still around. Seriously, where are these family owned groceries and toy stores?

The high end/yuppie groceries are Whole Foods and AJ's Fine Foods, the latter being part of what's left of two chains of locally owned groceries. AJ Bayless was bought out by Basha's many years ago. Basha's kept the AJ name for a few stores. Regular Basha's started going downhill when they adopted loyalty cards. They survived by turning most of the stores into Food City, geared to low income and Hispanic buyers, no loyalty cards and none at AJ's either. The actual mom and pop stores are small Hispanic ones.
