According to the AP: “A record number of shoppers could head to stores across the country to take advantage of deals during the kickoff to the holiday shopping weekend.”
Interesting to think that 10,000 rabid consumers lined up outside Macy’s in the dead of night eager to save a few bucks on discounted material crap is about the same number of people that were marching in the streets of New York on OCW’s “Day of Action” protesting corporate greed and malfeasance. Go figure.
The whole notion of “holiday shopping” sickens me. This year, I’m thinking of buying a goat for some family in Africa.
