    I always "boycott" all retailers on Black Friday because I just don't want to deal with the traffic and the crowds.

    I can't. This is important.

    You know, as much as I have no interest in going anywhere near a retail location on Friday, THIS might be enough to get me to go shopping if the Occupy Worcester group was looking to do anything with this. Their website doesn't indicate they're involved in anything more than their ridiculous picket in Lincoln Square and their camp, but if they WERE going to do it, I might have just had to go and spend some money wherever they were protesting.

    I actually understand this, but... I dislike large unruly crowds so much that I wouldn't go anyway.

    Re: Will you be boycotting the top 100 retailers on Black Friday?

    I suppose if I was a broke college kid who couldn't afford $300 for a large flat screen LED tv, then I probably would be more inclined to the absolutely idiotic idea of boycotting United States retailers because they want to give me insanely good discounts to clear out their old inventory. If I were going to be logical about taking out the top 1%, I think what I would actually do is boycott the other 364 days where retailers make much larger profit margins by selling at their usual market rates.

    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.

    Yeah, but if the 99% are boycotting, then maybe there won't be large unruly crowds. They'll all be down at the park engaging in the free exchange of ideas, parasites and STDs.

    It's especially funny when you consider that the party that likes to rail on Hollywood stars elected Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    EDIT: Don't forget about Rep. Sonny Bono.
