    Me, not only NO, but hell NO!!! There is no "deal" good enough for me to wade thru a sea of people to get a few dollars off of a limited amount product. If I'm going for a deal, it's on Cyber Monday.

    Hell no.

    The only place I can tolerate crowds like that is a baseball or hockey game.

    Since there is little response, I guess many of our USMB friends are out shopping or sleeping it off.

    I don't usually but I have in the past and I might sometime. I also like seeing who's out and what's on sale Christmas eve.

    You just have to be patient and if someone else is aggressive, get away from them. I have to say, I haven't been around any fights, people out there are nice for the most part.

    Way different shopping here black friday than the city, or back east.

    Everyone is polite, queued up and sociable.

    It's a shindig, not a no holds barred cage match of death.

    Why hasn't the term "Black Friday" been outlawed yet?
    I mean, he's been in office 4 years already.

    Complete insanity in the name of greed.
