They remind me of the OWS in Los Angeles when I went to talk to them. They want to change everyone to be more like them. Not corporations or politicians, everyone.

Well, I certainly wouldn't advocate not giving gifts, but those black Friday sales need to be outlawed for the sake of the public. Personally, it pisses me off that a certain store would complain about protesters, but not want the crazy people out of their store. At least one fight broke out where I worked the other night. The manager kept having to have places where he saw blood cleaned up. Customers complained to me about being pushed and shoved. But in all honesty, that's a better situation. Oh, and I nearly got hit twice finding a parking space because people were speeding through the parking lot and basically going nuts.

People don't have enough sense of decency not to hurt others for gifts. I've pointed out this is often done in the name of buying presents for Christmas, about Jesus's birthday. My co-worker responded "In the name of God, POW, that's mine!"

I think they need to make this event which literally promotes violence illegal. That doesn't mean don't have sales, but perhaps not having mega sales where people are encouraged to to come in violating each other. Seriously, I would love to find a way to shame the human race right now. They're making possessions their god, not Jesus.

When should the government allow sales, should they also control the price? Perhaps for the good of the public they should stop Christmas.

I guess by taking away the rights of the lawful citizens it might control the rabble or then again we could just start enforcing the laws we already have.

From the article:
It's Thanksgiving night, you should be with your family not standing in line at midnight at Walmart trying to get a great deal," said a protester.Do you see it???

Not the goldy, not the silvery. Yes, yes, the irony.

Why do you think the socialists ALWAYS need re-education camps?

Sales on Black Friday are up 7% over last year.

Such is the way the real 99% protests against the goals of the shitters.

I don't shop on Black Friday, because I hate crowds. But for those who love it, well, I hope they enjoyed it.


I have a bunch of coupons for Christmas shopping, though. Someone gave me a great one for Justice, which is one of my nieces' favorite stores, and Macys sent me a bunch in the mail. I think I'll do pretty good on prices. My brother's kids are all getting what they want-Target gift cards.

I used to shop on Black Friday back when it was fun. It hasn't been fun for a long time. The elements of violence have taken over.

I had a couple of friends brave Black Friday. They went to Rodeo Drive and didn't see a single violent crowd. What's the big deal?

Oh, if only this movement catches on among the left:


Members of the Occupy Honolulu movement are urging the public to have a "buy nothing Christmas."

Future Republicans learn that their parents didn't get them anything to teach the rest of the country a lesson about consumerism.

Good point. I'm hearing that cops were letting people go after they had fights. They need to throw these assholes in jail. Show the public that there is a consequence for acting crazy.

Now, wait a minute. Christmas is not about presents. People need to know that it's about the birth of Christ.

Don't get me wrong. I love to be Santa so to speak, but people need to know this.

Okay, I have a proposal. Let's show OWS the spirit of giving.

We can buy ten protesters Great Value or Equate brand (walmart brand) products for them to give to them at Christmas!

Okay, how about the spirit of giving combined with love and compassion. :D



That would be considered torture. :D

If there's a lake nearby, we can throw them under water with the soap and they'll call it waterboarding.

Actually, I can see them going into a public restroom to clean up and say they have to let them do that because everything should be free.

Such cute little sad children.

I still haven't forgiven my mom for making me give my Halloween candy to my siblings.
