In what economists are hailing as a clear sign of economic recovery, Walmart customers across the USA jammed into stores on Black Friday, sometimes killing each other to buy useless ----.

Satire or not, it shows the extremity of materialism in this country, even in times of desperation. When people wait in lines for hours and days to buy TVs, blu-rays and other useless crap instead of doing something useful such as praying for our country....it’s sick!
Anyone who gets up at 4AM to line up to buy Chinese-made junk is an idiot, in my opinion. Whether they behaved themselves or not.
Why does customers fighting to save a buck at Christmas men a better economical outlook.
IMO it means a worse outlook. People who have money won’t fight in these crowds for a cheap gift.
Apple Computer=100% made in China
Walmart=80% imported from China.
Who is hated more?
Maybe but thank God we have this system. As conservatives, we should support this is capitalism which we love.
With each passing day we look more and more like a street scene from Soylent Green. Total societal meltdown seems imminent.
1. I’m not Andy Borowitz.
2. I don’t work for Andy Borowitz.
3. I was not aware that the Borowitz Report is a blog. It looks like a regular website to me.
>>Why does customers fighting to save a buck at Christmas men a better economical outlook.
I agree. The combination of amorality, entitlement mentality, and the bad economy are reaching a boiling point as evidenced by some of the insane things that occurred today. When the welfare checks don’t go out, or get cut one day in the future, the zombie hordes will take to the street to “take what they’s owed” (sic).
On second thought, maybe armored garbage trucks scooping people up off the streets of Los Angeles for processing isn’t such a bad thing.
Soylent green, it’s people....................
Aw, c’mon. The article was short, sweet, to the point and rather amusing.
Give “EveningStar” a break.
At least the article gave me a chuckle. With Obama, Congress, the MSM, elitests, OWS protesters and every other jerk-off running this nation into the ground, it’s refreshing to have something to laugh at for a change.
Exactly! Don’t go blaming Christmas shopping for these peoples’ behavior. These are the same types that blow each other away at weddings, birthdays, funerals....It has nothing to do with Christmas shopping.
Very very accurate post that you provided!!!!!!
“In what economists are hailing as a clear sign of economic recovery...”
Quite the opposite, in fact.
If there were an economic “recovery” in progress, shoppers wouldn’t be so insanely desperate to knock each other down in pursuit of overstock merchandise.
Gives a whole new meaning to ‘green shoots’.
Um, nobody was killed as far as I know. That usually happens with drug sales.
ummmm let me see... information technology that revolutionized the civilization or schlocky white trash outings?
I'll take Apple, thx.
Haven’t seen a stampede at an Apple store yet, knock on wood.
No discounts in Apple stores, and $5 discounts on Apple products elsewhere.
Did you see the videos on the news programs? It’s not just the usual Amish. Shameful!
Keeps the riff raff out. I'd gladly pay the extra fin for the service I get there.
Oh, I do support it. I am a capitalist. The free market has decided that it should cater to idiots who want to camp out in front of Best Buy. Its just a shame that America is populated by so many idiots these days, and that people are that gullible and easily manipulated. But I suppose that explains Obama’s ascension to the presidency...
