Okay...the world is entirely too serious right now.  So, to lighten things up a bit, I want to propose a conspiracy.  I believe that the manufacturers of tents are the instigators of all that is crazy with the world.  You laugh, but think about it!

Occupy Wall Street, aka Occupy Oakland, aka Occupy Whatever....they are making statements by pitching their tents for a long-term stay.  As quickly as they pitch them, the police come along and tear them down.  So, to ensure that the protesters are making their point, they go out, buy more tents and pitch them again...and on it goes.

Now, we have a new group of tent pitchers...the Black Friday (misnomer since they are pitching now) enthusiasts are pitching their tents outside their favorite store so they can trample each other come midnight Thursday. 

I would hazard a guess that there may be a shortage of tents. As a result, and true to our supply and demand capitalism, the prices will go up.  Now the tent manufacturers will make masses of money.  The Occupy people will probably protest them for being too rich...

and on it goes.  I'm just sayin'....

Cute post Paula... I had to laugh!  Those tent makers are probably making a fortune... wait a minute... they're probably being shipped from China as we speak!

They are too comfortable in their high dollar tents, running there high dollar electronics in their high dollar sleeping bags, coats and clothes.
