“Black Friday” – What’s in a name?

Throughout the year, retailers run on slim margins, often “in the red“. “Black Friday” is an accounting expression, not psycho-babel. It’s the day of the year when retailers, particularly the retail giants, move out of red ink into the black.

At this point in time, our actual unemployment rate is approximately 12.6%. One would assume workers would be eager to do whatever it takes to keep a job, wouldn’t you? Then, what’s to be said about a petition by a Target Stores employee to “save Thanksgiving“?

A building socialist storm threatens their existence. The Communist Party USA promises “a world where people and nature come before profits. That’s socialism. That’s our vision. We are the Communist Party USA.” Blindly ignorant socialists imagine a world free of capitalism. How does socialism differ from capitalism?

The differences are distinct and striking. A dictionary definition of socialism is “a political and economic THEORY of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole“. Why call socialism a theory? Simple: it’s NEVER been proven to work.

In contrast, the dictionary definition of capitalism is: “an economic and political SYSTEM in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state“.

Note key difference between socialism and capitalism – THEORY vs. SYSTEM.

Socialism will forever remain an economic and social theory. Nonetheless, socialism lives in America, a nation that has fought wars to preserve freedom, freedom socialists urgently wish to take away from you.

I offer the following links for your edification.
