    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.

    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.
    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!

    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.
