    And I said that. And you ignored everything else that I wrote which challenged your comment. Have anything to say about it?

    What an odd debate. People want convenience and they want the most (product/service) for the least money. And if a retailer has the technical means to meet that demand and still make a profit, well guess what, they're going to.

    So what you are saying is that to some extent the retailer is to blame. Fascinating.
    No, that's NOT what he's saying. He was clear. So was I. The incident described in the OP is NOT the retailer's fault. It is the fault of those who tried to enter the store. The LARGER SOCIETAL issue has responsibility going all around, including that of the retail industry... as was explained a few times in a few ways.

    But this wasn't "rampant consumerism" it was thuggish behavior. You make a logic jump that isn't there.

    People think the protesters and police reaction towards this recent crop of protests is bad, the stuff that went on back in the 60's is down right horrendous. Think of what would be popping up on Twitter and Youtube back then if they had access to that technology.

    Define thuggish behavior. Why can't something be "rampant consumerism" and thuggish behavior?

    This is hopeless.

    People wanted what they wanted when they wanted it. Wal-Mart was unable to oblige. "Thuggish behavior" ensued.

    Let me guess, all liberals' fault, amirite?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    My initial one, yes, though I think that Kobie's description of how consumerism has played a part in this also has merit and combines nicely with my assessment.

    What do you think?
