Random Thoughts: For a Black Friday

in Random Thoughts

Black Friday Relentless!

Let the financial carnage begin, with our American Cousins celebrating Black Friday (and the follow on Red Saturday), the orgy of spending for the Holidays has begun. Will the Retailers get to the Black on this most hallowed of selling days? Only time will tell, but the sales onslaught is quite relentless right now. As Canadians we can try to enjoy these sales with our Dollar at parity with the mighty Yankee Buck, but the shipping and handling still kills us somewhat. We have also been warned about long waits at major border crossings as well. Will all this spending cause a stimulated economy in the States, or the converse an OVER-stimulated economy? We will wait to see what the numbers say.

Given the high tensions on the Korean peninsula, should make for an interesting December in terms of what may transpire on the markets in reaction to whatever might come up in that area. We have already seen volatility this week, and expect much more in the future (is my guess).

My weekly prattlings for this week included:

Remember that I also micro-blog on Twitter, where you can see a whole plethora of good articles and pithy comments by me as well. Twitter feed where I re-tweet many great articles by some of my featured writers (and make the occasional odd or off colour commentary on life (in 140 characters or less)). I am also on Digg as Big Cajun Man as well.

Also remember my RSS feed is available too, for those who enjoy reading without looking at my archaic page lay out, and I have added an RSS Comment Feed as well.

Remember that this site is iPhone Friendly (and Android & iPod Touch Friendly), enjoy it on the go, in a readable format for the device. If you are reading with an iPhone or Android device, drop me a comment and tell me if this needs any improvements. This site is also in the Kindle US Blog list, if you are interested, not available in Canada yet (because no Blogs are available in Canada on a Kindle?!?).

    I love that quote at the bottom. I’d gladly pay $20 not to ever see certain people again. Thanks for the mention.
