Halloween IS a perverted

Regardless of the video's motive, Halloween IS a perverted commercialization of a religious event, i.e. Reformation Day. Similarly, Santa Claus is a perverted commercialization of Christmas and Easter is a perverted commercialization of Good Friday and resurrection of Jesus. Notice how KIDS are used in each and every case. It's way past time for Christians to simply stop recognizing and participating in these usurpations of religious celebrations. Unbind these religious celebrations from the perverted commercialization. If you want your kids to hunt for eggs, do it at least a month AWAY from Good Friday. If you want to give gifts to your kids, do it at least a month AWAY from Christmas day. If you want to allow kids to eat candy, do it at least a month AWAY from Reformation Day and use Christian symbols while soliciting Christian participants. Let retrieve the religious celebrations from the pagan usurpers.

Even for the onion. This was pretty boring.

It actually felt to much like the sunday morning bullshit face the nation show this time. I had to tap out. No mas man. No mas.

And the packages are much

And the packages are much smaller.

Halloween is a great time to measure candy inflation

I started this years ago. The same bag of candy, over each year I have tracked it, went from $1.29 to $1.49 to $1.79 to $1.99 to $2.49. Wonder what it will be this year!

Wow, that is about a 17% rate of price increase.

I think maybe the federal government and Federal Reserve Bank have been busy printing and telling fibs about the rate.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

Cant watch the video, but

Cant watch the video, but commercialization is the new god. Nice trick. Corporations are now gods.

It's about how in the good old days people would torture

animals to scare off the wandering spirits, and nowadays we rip apart toy animals instead, and splash ourselves with warm fake blood instead of proper real blood.
