    I bocott Wal-Mart year-round. Not because I hate big companies, but because I hate having to deal with the hoople-heads that shop there.

    I was in Wal-Mart tonight--because the old lady can't seem to go any-****in-where-else--and got in line behind some dumb bitch that didn't know how to swipe her ****ing debit card. Then, after they cleared that hurdle, her stupid as didn't know her PIN and had to call her husband.

    LOL, this is going to fail so miserably.

    Yeah, getting dragged to black Friday shopping this year though I don't think they're doing the door buster stuff...thank god.

    On the plus side, having all my Christmas shopping done before December takes a load of stress off.

    Best way to know you are dealing with an establishment-run astroturf organization: they make completely empty and ineffective calls to action that only make the people involved look bad.

    I have been saving up and not purchasing anything for some time so that I can go out on Black Friday and spend. I am specifically going to AutoZone, Wal-Mart, Costco, Trader Joes, Staples, MacDonalds, and Verizon. Thanks for the list that way I can hit up some more and support the stores and the workers who work at them since they are the 99%.

    I don't care, my shopping is done, I stay out of all stores after Thanksgiving.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Does not compute. The notion that I should spend money because the government needs the tax revenue is completely ridiculous to me.

    I do not support the boycott and the only store I might be going to are grocery stores far away from any store having a black Friday sale.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    i just hate the crowds on Friday. will be staying as far from the malls as possible.

    i do plan to go out and spend a bit on Saturday, though. there is a movement to spend local that day, and i really like my local businesses.

    I don't like huge crowds, don't have a car/driver's license, and my husband is working.

    However, even if all the above wasn't true, their protests wouldn't affect my shopping at all, since I would be most likely shopping at the NEX and they can't do that crap on base.
