Okay, like every year, let’s hear the stories, and see the videos, from your area of people going crazy over stuff they could have ordered online.

I love that people put themselves and others at risk over completely disposable products and “door busters” that will be marked down to clearance prices after the holidays.

 

That one video is people fighting over Serta pillows. Come on, the true value of that is like $1.

Yeah... Uhhh, no.  Our founders wanted that dialog as long as nobody is stabbing the obnoxious sister in law with the butter knife. Somewhere Ben Franklin is smiling as long as the political discourse is taken up with a modicum of decorum.  That's how it is suppose to work: open dialog over less important things.  Consumer products are fleeting.

Today is Black Friday

Tomorrow is the first day of deer season in PA

 

Why not merge the activities?

Hunters have enough problems among their own:

Pack that before thinking twice about taking a dump in the woods during deer season!

Climate protesters block stores, disrupt Black Friday shopping

By Sam Dorman | Fox News

Protesters around the world disrupted Black Friday shopping in order to draw attention to climate change days before the United Nations met to discuss the issue in Madrid.

The retail holiday saw protests in a long list of countries -- including France, Germany, the United States -- with some activists entering stores and others holding mock funerals. Near Paris, climate demonstrators blocked a shopping mall and gathered in from of Amazon’s headquarters to protest over-production they say is killing the planet.

To many activists, Black Friday is the epitome of this shift, a purely commercial event designed to boost U.S. retailers ahead of the Christmas holidays, the symbol of capitalism run amok.

"We are living in a system of endless consumerism," the group Extinction Rebellion NYC tweeted on Friday. "Earth cannot sustain that, especially as we accelerate towards climate and ecological catastrophe."

I’m not sure about the ethical lines people draw. If you are going to get into fights To get a deal on Black Friday, why not instead just steal the stuff on another day? Or is Shoplifting more immoral than Black Friday Assault
