cattail twitch

seriously, guaging one's emotional life by the tail of a cat is problematic at best. But if you believe that everyone shares their vibes, then why is it not possible that the cat picks up my pique and vice versa? makes us all more responsible for the crazy roadrage drivers out there.
today was another shopping day (i should probably look into this compulsion, but am choosing to put it off) and i'm more and more shocked by the struggle that the retail empire must be going through... fifty percent off coats, sixty percent off scarves, etc. AND then I feel more and more shocked by the PROFIT!! they must have been making, as of say, three months ago when i needed that winter coat ...
and then i think again, okay, well, maybe all of the big corporations are led by the men who get million dollar bonuses and that reality for them, is slightly different than for me. they, along with the oil magnates, must truly believe that we Americans are incredibly stupid. We'll take it in the gut and take it in the gut again and again, and then when we are on our knees, they'll give us a sale coupon, lower the prices, amaze us with their generosity and gasoline below two dollars. And so- up we go, taking on those fabulous sale prices with a smile... do they 'they' really think we won't hold a grudge? capitalism was meant to ensure us fair prices for our goods, competition meant competition! and the necessity to keep the prices low to entice the consumer. Now? why is all our milk the same price? why are the companies bigger and bigger? why do I have only one choice for my homeheating natural gas?
i say, prices are falling, its a sign of a recession that all of us already knew was here.

let em fall. . .
