Walmart have officially announced that shopping season will begin on Thanksgiving Day.

<snip>

Somewhat sad, but the reality of the times


So WHAT? Why, all of a sudden, is WalMart in charge of or in any way responsible for the stupid behavior of consumers?

Every year around this time, I stop going to malls.....especially to places like WalMart. I hate the traffic and crowds. Who NEEDS them?

Big corporations can do some horrible things, but I don't think this is one of them. There must be a HUGE market.....people will flock to the stores. Look how they behave on Idiot Friday!

It's especially crazy in view of the availability of online shopping. Brick and mortar stores are for the desperate. (but there are a lot of desperate people.....so I wouldn't go short on WMT)
