    I am going to avoid the retailers on Friday.......much like I avoid them the other 364 days of the year. My wife and I purchase at least 90% of the discretionary stuff over the Internet.

    Given what I have seen of the OWS crowd, I sincerely doubt any retailer in the country will miss their minute purchases. I will also bet the one retailer that crowd will not boycott is the local drug dealer.

    I boycott all retailers every Friday after Thanksgiving.

    It's Buy Nothing Day (which has been around for alot longer than OWS).

    This year I might buy something at a small local store though, since the economy is bad.

    I've changed my answer. I'll be boycotting Kohl's because of their stupid friggin' Black Friday add in which they use that god-awful song by Rebecca Black.

    We only buy what is necessary, and we do not care, that much, from whom.
    Inflation/economics/fixed income forces this..

Honestly, the world would be a better place if we lived in mud huts and had to hunt for our food with home-made tools. Then there wouldn't be all those unfair social pressures to get a job because everyone would be just fighting for their own survival.

    Sorry, a little over the top?
    Profits are proof of social service. They indicate that factors of production have been combined in a way that yields an extraordinary degree of value. Thank you, high profit companies. You are providing for our most urgent needs.

    I think "Black Friday" is an obscene and decadent practice that perfectly showcases how disgusting our society is.

    I also hold the same general opinion of the "Occupy" movement.

    They both consist of frenzied, teeming hordes of mindless vermin with no higher aspirations than to get whatever they want, however they can, with no regard for the lives or the property of civilized human beings just trying to go about their daily business in peace. It's the exact same behavior.

    And, as far as I am concerned, it has the exact same solution: nerve gas.

    I usually try to shop small and local anyway, even if it costs me a little bit more. I don't support the working conditions/policies of most of these big companies.
