Wow, I certainly didn't see these lines being drawn!

Not unexpected, but in response to all those with the "black Friday is horrible" argument, I just have to say that for a lot of people, particularly in our current economic state, Black Friday offers them an opportunity to buy gifts, clothing, other necessary items for the children, themselves and family. Obviously, the dark side of today are the people who are willing to resort to violence and disregard humanity for waffle irons, but there are plenty of people who do not stoop so low and definitely benefit from the discounts on this day.

The very fact that America is such a great country is why we can expect better of her, be critical of her failings even in the face of monumental suffering elsewhere.
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
I stood around and conversed with nice people for two hours while in Best Buy, even though incredibly crowded. A ton of please and thank you's were exchanged, even though you could hardly move in the store. Smiles galore. Walmart was pleasant as hell. Not a peep here. All is quiet on the Northern front. We are pleasant folk. Thank you corporate America for providing a better leisurely lifestyle for me and my family.

"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
