Try to avoid buying Christmas gifts at Amazon or big box stores that raked in hundreds of millions during the plague. Attempt to focus to the extent possible on the little guys. The same is true of restaurants and other small shops.
Now get in there and fight! You know, if Biden wins the disputed vote count, you should be able to loot, and just carry the merchandise away. The New Amerika, right?
Holiday movie suggestion of the Day:
Body of Lies
Body of Lies is a 2008 American action thriller film directed and produced by Ridley Scott. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Crowe, and Mark Strong in the lead roles. Set in the Middle East, it follows the attempts of the CIA and Jordanian Intelligence to catch “al-Saleem”, a terrorist. Frustrated by their target’s elusiveness, differences in their approaches strain relations between a CIA case officer/chief of station, his superior, Near East Division Chief, and the head of Jordanian Intelligence.
The screenplay, based on the novel of the same name by David Ignatius, examines contemporary tension between Western and Arab societies, and the comparative effectiveness of technological and human counter-intelligence methods. The film was shot largely on location in the United States and Morocco.
The tradecraft involving the use of drone aircraft is something that you might want to familiarize yourselves with just as a matter of interest.

Just sit in the corner, on the floor and slurp your gruel, you serf! Be thankful that there are a few hunks of tofu in it.
This Month in History
On this month in 1820, an 80-ton sperm whale rammed & sank a Nantucket whaling ship named Essex.
Twenty of the crew escaped in open boats, but only five survived the three months adrift, while three others were rescued off an island.
Herman Melville based his novel Moby Dick on these real events, but changed the name of the ship from the Essex to the Pequod.
One hundred and fifty one years later, a Seattle English teacher, a History teacher, and a writer approached a bank about a loan to start a coffee house. They wanted to call the place “The Pequod,” but the bank would not lend them money on that strange name, so they changed it to “Starbucks” — the name of the first mate in Herman Melville’s Moby Dick tale.
