    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    we complain plenty, but when the rubber meets the road we STFU and do what must be done.

    if these pussies don't want to work black friday, they can ****ing quit and look for another job elsewhere.

    maybe if their skill set consisted of more than sweeping floors and putting boxes on shelves they wouldn't have to be working the black friday sale at Target

    considering the high unemployment rate, bitching because you have a job that requires you to work the day after thanksgiving seems stupid.

    My issue is there's a thread created to attack people for petitioning their employer for better working conditions.

    Thanksgiving last year, I spent most of the day riding in an M1151 escorting a convoy of MREs and Water halfway across southern Iraq.

    Like most of these things some retailer dreamed up a midnight shopping thing, it was wildly successful, others followed, and now it is completely out of control. Retailers are now counting on it to be a major income producer so there is no going back unless everyone agrees to put a stop to it. The public is just about as much to blame as the retailers but not quite. I have never particpated and never will. It is insane.
