    I'm thinking that it may be more than a few people trampled to death this holiday.

    It is good news that OWS wants to get one with the people like this. Interrupt people's sale shopping, that will get them a LOT of support. Grassroots and all that.

    "Mindless consumerism" is just another Mindless cliche.




    I do not shop on black Friday, but that's just me...




    God forbid people take advantage of bargains on things they wish to buy. :lol:

    Well hey! If they really want to keep people away. maybe they can throw molotov cocktails through the glass or shoot them in the parking lot! That should be able to stop people from shopping Best Buy, and then the people earning a paltry wage can be laid off and be unemployed too!

    Yeah! That's the ticket!

    Stop mindless consumerism, hurt big corporations and the little people they employ or wish to purchase their goods won't be hurt at Allllllllllll... :rolleyes:

    So that's a no on your 30th unreplied thread start?

    Do you realize a third of your threads have less than 10 responses?

    I mean, that's pitiful.... Especially for someone like yourself who puts such a high value on the number of threads started...

    Well, we USMBers can't be held responsible for your failures...

    Keep trying...:thup:

    Mine? He's spot on. The idea of 'OWS boycotting/protesting' corps on Friday? Not much, but if they went viral and did for long term? They'd be hurting major those of us that are underemployed. One day won't matter, even Black Friday, but more than that? Perhaps, though the backlash may be huge.
