OK, so am I the only one who is totally disgusted with the way people are acting to get a PlayStation 3?? I am watching the news and they are telling all these stories of people being SHOT and robbed while standing in line to wait for one. ITS A VIDEO GAME SYSTEM PEOPLE!! Why do the companies make it so only a few people can obtain these? I think they secretly enjoy watching people act like complete idiots. This leads me to believe that most of these people waiting in line are getting a present for their child for Christmas. I recently heard a little presentation on how this lady "simplified Christmas." It was neat to hear how she made Christmas in her house more about Jesus and less about stuff! She decided that if three gifts were good enough for Jesus then it was definitely good enough for her children! She also started decorating with fresh evergreen and fruit to remind her family members of how God provides! I just thought she had really great ideas and I am sad that most people in the world are SO greedy and selfish at Christmas time. Dear Lord, please NEVER allow me to become so greedy that I would stand in line for hours or even days to obtain a worthless item that you promised would rust!

I agree with you completely. I happened to go into our Wal-Mart to buy some things for church and saw adult people waiting for this system. It was 9:00 am. They had brought chairs and drinks to have while waiting. I really wanted to know if they took off of work to get this system. What a waste of money and time.

So true, you know we had three tents camped outside of our Wal-mart for 3 days. It's crazy!!!! The company could've made a million of them, but they didn't. They love to watch this mess.

Oh, I need help on adding links to my blog. Want to help ??? Carla

You makes some very good points Tracy, but I would expect you to knowing the way you were raised. You are a caring person. Always keep your good values.
Love you, Nana and Grandpa
