Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2015-373: Inflation Signs

When will the dollar stores make the transition to two dollar stores?

You can only hold the line so long.  Eventually you will run out of things that people will buy for only a dollar.  Well maybe not, people will still vote for Hillary if she gets the nomination.  Some people will buy anything.

But in economics the day has to come.  In some ways it already has its nose under the tent.  The 99 Cent Store has become the 99.99 cent store.  There are also a number of stores around that have the word “dollar” in their name that have very few items for a dollar on their shelves.  In fact I can often beat their prices other places but keep going in looking for bargains.  Often the items offered for a buck have been reduced in size. 

Maybe we need a government subsidy for dollar stores.  If we can subsidize consumers with things like EBT cards and Title 8 housing, why not take the inventory of a Walmart and subsidize everything so it costs a dollar?  Actually I know why.  It would not take long before the shelves were cleaned off of everything except what you find unsold at dollar stores today.  Even parasites like a good meal.  They would leave everything else for those of us that work all day and can’t get to the store while there is still quality merchandise. 

Until the day the Democrats set up a Department of Dollar stores with a Dollar Czar, I will continue looking for bargains.
