    I think they are full of BS myself.....plus the news reported Demonstrations and protests across the country over Ferguson. Every year they say they are up from last year.

    In January we will get the hard facts.

    In fairness we have been fighting each other for years over football so it makes sense that this has caught on. I would rather fight over a 50 inch Plasma than Everton Football club lol

    You don't believe the US would hide or manipulate statistics to encourage more sales, tsk tsk?

    I am the same way with small shops.....we have a Small Town Donut/Bakery/Coffee shop. They put up a Dunkin Donuts across the street from them. But the majority of the town goes with the Donut Shop. Which they are not open 24 hrs. The D&D is.

    We use to have a Hostess Bread Store and Sara Lee. I use to go to them until they closed them down.

    Although nowadays I don't really go out shopping much other than for groceries or to take the car in.

    Going to the bakery is laziness on my part..if I walk another 400 yds..I can go to a supermarket..their bread is hot..half the price..

    Is the poll exclusively talking about physically fighting for so-called good deals on Black Friday, or is it broader to include any good deal? Because if it is the former, no, I would not, but if it is the latter, then yes, I most certainly would up to and including to the death if necessary.

    Sounds like you're taking extreme positions? Fighting for a savings of money that you could use and the other out of the necessity to survive are two different scenarios. I'm talking about the former, not the latter.
