[quote:RoXY:MV8xNTc4NDI2XzM0NjM1NTI0X0ExN0FCNkFE] [b] Black Friday Madness: Tent Cities Set Up to Buy Consumer Crap[/b] John Galt Wednesday, November 21, 2012 Activist Post They don't call it Black Friday Madness for nothing. Once again, as in years past, America will go wild and demonstrate the worst of humanity; including fights, near riots, knocking down children, and full-on degeneracy - all in search of America's Holy Grail: a good deal. And it has arrived earlier than ever before, which ironically has led to protests within corporate monolith Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart spokesperson, Bill Wertz, defended the early hours by saying that [i]"associates understand that Black Friday and the holiday season is the most important time of the year."[/i] The implication, of course, is that it is more important to be with Wal-Mart than to be with your own family for a relaxing Thanksgiving dinner. Meanwhile, at other corporate giants like Best Buy, "tent cities" have formed in Southern California parking lots as shoppers wait for doors to open, Some were reportedly taking a week off of work to "save money." What kind of culture sets up "tent cities" in an effort to beat out their neighbors to see who can buy the latest garbage at the cheapest price? And probably on credit. A culture that can justify the following actual statement from within one of these Best Buy tent cities: [i]'I'm here for the big TVs, games for the kids and PlayStations,'[/i] Flores said. [i]'If we had money we wouldn't even be out here in the cold ... we barely saved enough to get our TVs.'[/i] [b]CONTINUE: http://www.activistpost.com/2012/11/black-friday-madness-tent-cities-set-up.html[/b] [/quote]
