    No one is going to do anything. But please go so I can stand there with my cup of D&D laughing at all you folks tripping over each other.

    Without a scapegoat, in this case unions, republicans / American conservatives would be lost for then they would have to think and thought does fit into finger pointing.

    "You don’t have to love unions, you don’t have to believe that their policy positions are always right, to recognize that they’re among the few influential players in our political system representing the interests of middle - and working-class Americans, as opposed to the wealthy. Indeed, if America has become more oligarchic and less democratic over the last 30 years — which it has — that’s to an important extent due to the decline of private-sector unions." Paul Krugman

    I think they should boycott Kohl's too. Making their poor employees work at midnight on Thanksgiving. Tisk Tisk Tisk. Oh wait...they don't REALLY care about the actual employees (that is just an excuse.) Nevermind. :tongue:

    I'll be engaged in my normal Black Friday activity of cleaning out the garage, putting the snow tires on, and gassing up the snow blower. You couldn't get me to a mall or strip center or any other shopping area if they were giving away sets of hot blond Swedish nineteen-year-old twin babes.
