    Well, considering how conservative Schwarzenegger was, I wouldn't get too excited.

    I know there are conservatives in Hollywood. Angie Harmon has talked about how hard it is to get jobs when they know you are a conservative. I just wonder why the 99% never go after Hollywood, and so many Hollywood leftists are so quick to support them.

    OCCUPY BLACK FRIDAY

    Here are the top 100 retailers:

    If occupiers wanted to really hurt retailers, they'd tell their parents, friends and family not to buy them anything for Christmas. THAT might actually make a difference. Don't see that happening, though. But I sure don't know why they want to hurt retailers...that's where the 99% earn a living. Not much of what they're doing makes sense to me, though.

    If they really want to hurt the top 100 retailers, they wouldn't purchase anything from them EVER. Instead, they're just doing it for one day. Yeah, that's gonna make a difference.

    Not only that, but doing it on the one day that retailers are offering the biggest discounts. If they really wanted to hurt retailers, they would do all their shopping for the year on black friday.

    I won't be shopping on Black Friday, but only because I'm not investing a lot into Christmas this year and there's nothing I need/can afford. I'm saving every single penny I can for our house. I think the boycott is a ridiculous idea and I hope we see plenty of arrests and/or failed attempts.

    I might buy from Amazon, but not the rest.

    That would actually be working against their goals. They want to buy things, just not from big Wall Street/bigtime stores.

    I noticed that the local "Occupy" Movement is pushing "Small Business Saturday". I've taken note of who is on that list locally, and I will ensure that I don't go anywhere near those business' at all this holiday season.
