If you are single like me, it is our day. Nov 11th, more precisely, 11/11 or 4 1's. Like the other money-grabbing holidays such as Father's Day, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Single's Day is the day lonely singles should go online and purchase something good for themselves. This year, Alibaba -- the Amazon of China -- says sales hit a billion in nine hours. That's right, it is right up there with Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
What am I doing with my special day, well, I've already done my old-man stretches, done my Buddhist chants, and now am blogging. I won't be shopping online, but I will be visiting the Salvation Army to buy a new shirt. Call me a 1%.
In other news, finally a voice of reasoning:
In this Huffpost article, Cleese states the obvious:
To me, it’s like people who go and watch professional wrestling and don’t realize that it’s fixed. If they can’t see it when it’s right under their nose, I have no idea how they’re going to realize how wrong they are.
He's talking about the Fox News Watching Trump Supporters who are destroying the world with hate, greed, hellishness, and their phony blue-eyed Jesus.
Thank you John...
God help us all!
