It was nice that Walmart closed early so their employees could get home to their families where many of them still had packages to wrap and prepare for their celebration today.
    Yeah, it sucked. I'm glad I have a week off now.

    Ergo people were a lot more polite back then. We don't have nearly enough of that kind of violence now days.
    George Washington would have killed someone for being rude? That's a hero to you?

    I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that this comes from the "I have every right to run you over if you inconvenience me" crowd.

    Wellll, personally I was hoping to listen and in general not opine; at least not until there was enough meat to stick a fork in. ( if ya' get my drift ).

    I prefer to listen before I speak.

    Two wrongs don't make a right. Also, if I had to choose, I'd choose rudeness over violence any day of the week.

    Well you must. See, here's the thinking - he thinks it's bad, therefore they must be a bunch of liberals (the source of all bad things). Since you are liberal, you must condone this because they have a "hive mind." (Does anyone else remember that bait thread that started as a rant about how liberals are like the Borg in Star Trek?)

    Ergo, you condone it. Because Al Sharpton told you to. Or something.

    Wow.

    The reality is some people are just too immature to handle Capitalism. The dame type of " Capitalism " is being applied at the Wallmart in my city.

    We don't have problems like this.
    Ummm, when you create a culture that fosters a type of attitude, you get that type of attitude. Or is that only true for the supposed nanny state? As I said, if you foster a selfish culture, people will act selfishly. Why anyone is shocked at that is beyond me.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    [QUOTE=Your Star;1064128205]Because you didn't have the internet to shed light on these types of stories back then.
    The fact is, we are nicer, more civil, and a safer society than we have ever been.[
    /QUOTE]



    Wrong.

    We are exactly the same people that we were in the past.

    But now everyone has a cellphone- This permits juvenile delinquents to quickly gather in large groups (Flash mobs.) and commit crimes that wouldn't be possible for individuals.

    No, rather Im watching you dismiss the behavior of individuals by assigning blame where it does not belong.

    Nobody's dismissing anything. You're reading what you want to read.
