HOLIDAY OF GUILT AND GIFTS: "MERRY SICKMAS!"
HOLIDAY OF GUILT AND GIFTS: MERRY SICKMAS!
By Rein D. Gillstrom (12/25/09)
Global Warming, Climate Change, and businesses “Going Green” is merely a mutual Conspiracy Reality committed to the formulation of a managed market place for a staggering world economy void of morality in faith, family, industry, and government leadership, with plenty of guilt by association.
As the old saying goes: “There is a sucker born every minute”, and the new saying goes: “A World full of suckers . . . just sucks!”
With the recent Brew-Ha-Ha (if that is how you spell that), associated with Build-A-Bears recent 3 part webisodes series perpetuating a Global Warming Product Alignment and public appeal, I thought it a good idea to use them as a specific example of how Big Corporations, Big Government, and Big Special Interest Groups are really just following their own devised business plan projections that peg every unsuspecting Citizens as their primary funding source.
Build-A-Bear is a company, like many others that possesses an “impulse business model” ultimately, to be funded by the unbridled wants of undisciplined children (prepared via Nationalized Public Education) who really control the purse strings and wallets of Globally divided moms and dads around the world. For the Company Stockholders and Bigger Government, any holiday is a good day to sell “another stuffed, lifeless bear” to unsuspecting, present day sucker parents, and tomorrows sucker parents too. Just how many stuffed animals is enough stuffed animals anyway?
Today, long term success and the fulfillment of the fiduciary obligations of “Companies”, is in reality, due to the Government Approved Corporate Environment that the stockholders, and not the customers are allowed to thrive in. Today, that environment needs a solid footing in order to succeed in a post-industrialized environment. Enter “Made in China”. This is now the moniker that promises the daily fulfillment of Big Government and Big Businesses business plan projections.
From www.buildabear.com we find under their “Product Safety/Materials” posting, proof of that fact: “The majority of our products (similar to the entire toy industry) including our bears, clothing and many accessories are produced in China.”
Just because China is the Toy Industries Standard (substandard I might add) for manufacturing, why do all US businesses , and all branches of US Government see that they must be like everyone else? Is it really all about quality? Is it all about the children? Or, is it all about the money?
Now, as of late, Build-A-Bear has abandoned the webisodes on Global Warming and Climate Change. I say that, that, in NO WAY proves Build-A-Bears philosophy of Government Influenced, Global Warming Product Alignment has been abandoned for the customers best interest as they claim. But, it has been abandoned because it hurts the bottom line for the shareholders. Someone within the company bought the idea that it is good to place the company on the foundation of “Going Green”. Once you Go Green, the entire Company has “Gone Green,” hook, line and sinker!
When you look around, I mean really look around from now on . . . you will begin to see the most popular logo every created in history. That logo is based on an ideal, a philosophy and model of Government, in three simple, but powerful words: Made in China. Don’t ever forget the importance of that.
Sorry, I digressed there for a moment . . . I am a Graphic Designer by trade, so I take notice of these things.
In December of every successive year, most parents, in a growing way, are missing one important fact. Historically, Christmas is not about Santa Claus, it is about Jesus Christ - His birth. And when you look at the bigger picture of Jesus Christ, it is not just about the fact that the Savior of mankind was born in Bethlehem, but that He was crucified on a Roman cross for our sins, but more importantly, He resurrected and ascended to the right hand of Almighty God to bind up Satan’s power, cast him out of the heavens, and bring true Love, Hope and Justice, done in Righteousness into reality. That is the reason for the Season . . . It is a Season of Light. Today is that day!
Santa Claus, or Satan Clause to be more specific, is the real myth of a historic Pagan Papacy Purchase, with Coca-Cola and Bigger Government jumping on the bandwagon with keen marketing prowess. It is now the mature rotten fruit of today's most infamous Follyday: I shall call it: “Sickmas.” Merry Sickmas everyone!
Corporatism and Materialism should be seen as the real manmade H1N1 Flu of the day, and that Perpetual Morality is the only vaccine against its spread. Look, I am not against Capitalism, nor Sound Government at all. I am against pure misrepresentation and bait and switch tactics. I am against businesses that align themselves with Government, Special Domestic & Internationale Interests, and Lobbyist causes for the sake of the fluffy blue skies of the “Companies” shareholders while claiming some moral high ground based on a Government Approved Model of Ecological Economics.
We as parents should be ashamed, that we have allowed a not-so-simple "cute RED lie" to be perpetuated in the minds of our children, only to later to come out of the closet to tell them "Santa isn't real." Is the purchase of a corporate lie just so cute a thing, such a loving way to raise our children, that we would make some of the greatest compromises to humanity for the sake of warm fuzzies? Think about this: “Our children will become the future leaders of the world!” Will we provide a foundation of enslavement to myth and lies? Or will we love them enough, to see clearly enough, to give them the attributes really needed for their futures like: Godliness, Factual Knowledge, Morality, Confidence, Integrity, Love (from God’s perspective), and the ability to make Peace with all men?
Corporations today want to be the friends of Big Green Governments Local, National and Internationale, because Bigger Governments, at the Tax Payers expense is fast becoming the “Golden Parachute” of capitalistic management that can no longer morally manage themselves. This is the reality about the relationships between Big Corporations and Bigger Government. Bigger Government can't survive with out the daily tax revenues the Largess Companies supply them. It is a twisted codependent, monthly, Seasonal Sickmas that has reached truly ill proportions. I am personally disgusted with the fact that every coming month, their will and want, barges its way into our lives with the latest marketing trend, guilt trip, stamped with Government Holiday approval. It is an "over stuffed" relationship, and everyone involved needs present day suckers and suckers for tomorrow in order to fulfill the projected needs of Impulse Business Models.
More and more people are awakening to the facts that the “Stuff Marts” (Thank you Veggie Tales), Big Media, Big Companies, Big Governments, work in unison to supplant in our minds, the guilt trip and lies that are the new business models of non-prosperity (enslaving) economies. At the global pace of which government races upwards on expensive, fabricated lies, expensive false solutions, and historic Communist persuasion, pretty soon Any Company USA or Internationale is going to be seen as always "too big to fail", while Any Citizen USA or Internationale is going to always be deemed as “too prosperous to remain un-taxable!”
The time is now, and the call is: “Suckers Unite!” for smaller, moral leadership, in a limited government, by the people and for the people, a true model of success!
May we ask God as we return to Him, to bless our efforts as we advance the rich roots of our Christian Heritage (Made in God's Image) in America, and the entrepreneurial ideas of Freedom, Moral Capitalism, and that great moniker: MADE IN AMERICA! Let’s inoculate ourselves against the “China Syndrome” that in the past, we have allowed to steal our Faith, National Identity and our Futures.
It is time rebuild America on the foundation of "Build A Better Family!" instead of being controlled by more of the same “Build-A-Beargers.”
