I have some advice for one of the major retailers - perhaps Sears. Become the Chik-Fil-A of retail. Don't open all night after Thanksgiving. Honor the real reasons for all the holidays. Honor your employees. Be respectful. Have reasonable prices. Millions of people will shop in your stores and not behave like animals. I certainly would.
Finally, thank you for your generous policies for our servicemen and women.
That is just absurd! I don't think these people would be acting like this in the welfare lines. Well, then again...
I can't imagine leaving my family Thanksgiving dinner to get malled at the mall or walmart. Family is too important! We lost a dear family member this week and I can tell you there is absolutely nothing more important than being with family any time of the year. Life is too short to squable over stupid stuff like these people were, it's just STUFF. It's all gonna burn anyway. I'd much rather be tucking away memories with my family.

Now I've been around the block a few times and I can swear to our ALL MIGHTY GOD that I have NEVER, not even thought about, heading out to a place like WALMART or any other large discount store like it to find a 'good bargain' the day after Thanksgiving. I'd like to know what in hell the item is that these idiots were grabbing for. NOTHING out there (on sale or deeply discounted) is good enough for me to even THINK about participating in this type of 'pack mentality'. And the fact that thousands, all over the country were CAMPING OUT for DAYS in front of Walmart, Best Buy, wherever doors were opening at 8:00PM Thursday night isn't nuts enough? I went out to my local grocery store right before dark, where it was practically empty, got home, and popped open my bottle of Courvoisier VSOP Exclusive. Had a 'sippy' or two admiring how pretty the house looked with the newly decorated Christmas lights, and didn't even give a second thought to the lunatics participating a couple miles away in the Walmart nightmare.
My "Black Friday's" are always a decor transition from Thanksgiving to XMAS, with drink in hand......
Gosh that made me sick just watching that! I can't imagine doing that for anyone or anything. I stayed home and relaxed for a bit before babysitting some of my grandchildren for the evening! What has America become?
I am grateful that I don't:
- Support the NY Jets (teehehehe, just teasing)
- Worship the devil (Islam anyone?)
- Have a liberal/progressive worldview (got hate?)
- Have to mow the lawn (lol)
But most importantly, I'm grateful I don't love shopping - at all, that my character should manifest itself as being morally bankrupt when I go to a store as cheap as Walmart only to punch someone else in the face or pull out my gun when someone else cuts in line (????!!!!!!!).
For crying out loud!
Yup. Nothin says "Happy Birthday Jesus" like the actions of the people in that ^^^ video. Wow. Just disgusting.
Is this the country so may fought (and still fight) for?! What happened to us?
I wouldn't go to one of these if they were giving away $100 bills.
Off of the subject: I really liked this video.
The constitutional sheriff is doing his thing.
I'm sorry. We have become such a sick society, that a widescreen television, is more important, than the fate of Israel. That one thought, is what will be the end of America.
You'd have to be nuts to wade into this war zone jungle.
I spent the day making a manger scene for the "First Family" out of wood.
Had to search to the ends of the earth to find a Mary,Joseph and Jesus.Found a plastic set and glued felt,hair and trim on them to give them a realistic look.
Cut out sheep,a donkey and a camel with the jig saw and decorated them.
It looks cool lit up in the yard. I will try to make the three wise dudes tomorrow.
Time to put Christ back in CHRISTmas.
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Tis the season. Exchanged greetings with a 96%er who made an --s- turn and cut me off.(you don't need to use turn signals when you are on your cell phone in the parking lot). Made my day, went home and watched TV. I think I will buy local, and online.
I'm thankful that God gave me the brains to NEVER go shopping on Black Friday. There is nothing so important that I'd camp overnight and risk being trampled, slugged, stabbed, or shot for, particularly some plastic piece of crap from China that the marketing people decided is THE "must have" item of the season. Capitalism meets Hooliganism. I'm also thankful that Amazon is my friend. If I need it, it can be delivered to my door and I don't have to deal with idiots.
We used to be a country of invention, innovation, creation, and ingenuity. Now we are a nation of insane consumers. When I was a kid, a present was often something hand made out of wood, or an animal. It was really special to get a knife, and we all got our first guns at age 11. It was a big deal when my dad bought me a fly fishing pole. None of these things were disposable.
Same here. My parents were born during the Depression era, lived through WWII here as kids, and met and married in 1952. It wasn't about possessions then, it was about survival and raising a family. When I was growing up Christmas wasn't about material things. It was about Christ and family. Being raised in the military, there wasn't much money, so we got a few things we needed and one or 2 small things we wanted. My first bike was a used one that my dad lovingly repainted and gave me for my birthday when I was 8 or 9 (can't remember) It was the best present ever! Can you imagine giving a kid anything used today? I have to admit that my generation started the spiral that we now see out of control. It's gotten worse and worse and it makes me ill. Now I see parents who give their 7 yr old a new Iphone - he already has an Ipad, and the 2 yr old also has his own Ipad. I can't even imagine.
What the sam hell? There was a time when I really loved doing the early-rising black Friday thing every year. Friends and I would hit the road at 4:00 am with our plan of action and our lists. It was more a social event than anything else, and we had a ball. Never once did I encounter anything like this. If I had, I likely would have dropped to the floor, grabbed my friends, and crawled for the nearest exit. I must admit though... I laughed out loud watching this one. I watched it twice. What a bunch of dolts.
2 Timothy 3:1-5 KJV
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Can't get too worked up over this. Becky and I are both disabled veterans and this will be our second Christmas without gift giving. ( I do cheat a little) Things are tight but we do have what really counts. Hey, the horses have hay for the winter, and the dogs and cats are doing pretty good. Life is good! T&B
Thankful I had to work today (not in retail)! What a bunch of savages. Never been shopping on Black Friday and never will. Crazy people...
Looks like the typical Islamist day - Tahrir Square, Muslim Gang Rape, Change of Military Government in Pakistan, Any Street in Syria, Libya, etc.
I would like to see the 0b0 phone giveaway game.
1st give all the contestants a baseball bat.
2nd drop the phone on the 50 yard line.
3rd shoot off a round with a .38 and shout 1st one back with the phone is the winner.
I just read an article about those phones & the folks they interviewed who had them had the audacity to complain that weren't that great. They only had 200 minutes on them an no data package so after 2 days, they were "useless." The reporter wrote it as though they were right & people shouldn't be so indignant about us paying a mandatory fee on our cell phone bills because the people getting the phones were still getting screwed by the damn rich white guys.
Welcome to Amerika.
For those who think we haven't been a socialist government for many years are not following the money.
These same folks will be pissed when they find out their FREE healthcare only allows one shot a year.
You can't pay for extra, you get what they allow. NO SOUP FOR YOU!
I don't even want to pay for One of those moocher's phones and it makes it even worse when they act like ungrateful twits over something that was "Free".
I Really hate that its groups like this that have chosen dear leader again so they can get more stuff from us hardworking Americans!
These people in this video are acting totally uncivilized. I have zero respect for them and don't even recognize this as being my country. I'm disgusted.
NEVER SHOP ON BLACK FRIDAY
SEE RULE ONE
Some people are just rude animals who have no respect for the Holiday they are celebrating....society in decay...
Too all else....Time for a great Christmas Season!
I am embarrassed by the people who get this worked up to save a couple bucks. If only the registered Republicans were this worked up about this last election we would have a new President and a Republican majority in the Senate. That will never happen if only 35% of registered Republicans can find the time to drag their butts into a voting booth to cast a ballot. You can bet they can stand in line for hours upon hours then act like cattle at a cattle call to save a few bucks. Is it any wonder this country in going to Hell in a handbasket?
Problem is - The Republican establishment is not that much different and not worth getting excited over.
Problem with that kind of thinking is a 50% or better swing back in the right direction is so much better than allowing the guy who's campaign theme is "Forward" (straight over the cliff that is) to win by not voting for Romney just because he didn’t fit your perfect mold. If that is what you did then shame on you, the results are laying at your feet and the others just like you.
