I wonder if they have sex while they're waiting for the store to open, if women have orgasms in the tents everybody else can hear her than they will start having sex, all the screaming will scare the shlt out of any kids sleeping in the tents.

In The Absence Of Law And Order Society Will Surely Destroy Itself
I read so much on Black Friday sales...I see it all over the news.
Some people camp out for a week just to get a chance at....what?
I'd love to read opinions on Black Friday sales and consumerism in America.
My opinion is that I have a difficult time believing people camp out just to shop. I see shopping as a fairly insignificant aspect of my life, but that's just me.
What surprised me was a random interview/poll by a Boston news station asking people if stores should be open on Thanksgiving. Most of the older people said no and the younger ones said yes. It just makes me wonder if younger people see shopping as a more important aspect of life than older people.
I remember when I was much younger, being angry that Massachusetts was going to allow stores to be open on Sundays. I liked the fact that people were guaranteed a day off. I was also against stores being open 24 hours/day...but I was extremely liberal back then and everything was about power to the people and phark corp.-America.
But what I think is strange, is that even young liberals want stores open 24/7/365 as if it's advantage to THEM. Sadly, all it does is give more opportunity to corporations to make $$.
It also opens the door for the standard American work-week to get destroyed. Everything used to be 9-5 and 40 hours/week. Today, if you work for a retailer, you should expect to be over-whelmed by your work schedule.
Note: By "older", I mean people 40 or older. It looked like most of those who wanted stores open on Thanksgiving were in their 20's.
Is shopping that important? Is "stuff" that important?
Very thoughtful post about a subject on which I often ruminate. I think American society is brainwashed to "want," falsely "need" and buy, buy, buy as a road to personal fulfillment. I think we're so thoroughly conditioned that consumerism is driven subconsciously. We're all surrounded by "stuff" we don't truly need.
