    Have you seen those self service check out things? Watch an oldie try to assault one of those things. Hilarious.

    Yes - I guess - seeing as how I don't step outside my house for several days after Thanksgiving.

    I left the house 3 times today to make sure I didn't have to go out again anytime soon . .

    Actually, if I really wanted to take out the top 1%, I would stop buying theater tickets and DVDs of Hollywood movies. then we could hurt the real 1% who does very little to spur economic growth, like George Clooney, Robin Williams, Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Dustin Hoffman, Chevy Chase, Barbara Streisand, Michael Douglas, Susan Sarandon, Alec Baldwin, Michael Moore, etc.

    Funny how the 99% gives all of them a pass.

    DUDE.... if you know where a large flat-screen TV can be had for $300, you need to share that information quickly!

    It doesn't matter for me because I'll be working a 10 hour day anyways.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I already avoid some of those businesses, but more than a few of them are ones that I will patronize because they are franchises owned by locals. I know the owner of the 7-11 by my house, for example, and he's a really great guy. He actually cuts me deals now because I helped out one of his cashiers by forcibly removing a belligerent drunk asshole who was harassing her.

    I tend to shop local and avoid chain stores, but I make exceptions for franchises.

    I won't be shopping on Friday, though.

    They are the "door buster" deals at any big box store. They'll have something like 10 of them per store and if you aren't one of the first people in line waiting to get in at midnight, you have no chance at getting it.

    I never go shopping on Black Friday, I hate the crowds.


    But I think I'll go buy some stuff THIS friday just to torque off OWS.

    Yeah, let's hurt businesses, that'll help people find jobs, sure...

    I think Best Buy and Wal Mart have those deals near me. Wal Mart is a cheap brand though and Best Buy you have to bring the tent. Best Buy won't work for 99% of people because all their campout gear was confiscated at the park last week.
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.
