33. But as a practical matter, many of us are speechless animals.

Just sayin'.

Again, you're making assumptions/presumptions about what we "should" do. I you feel Walmart should stay closed on Thanksgiving Evening, write them a letter, refuse to patronize them. But there are apparently enough people in America who don't feel the same way you do. Why should the government be telling them to stay home and "reflect," or go feed some homeless people? Shouldn't these be personal choices?

If we, as a nation, refused to make it profitable for Walmart to open on Thanksgiving, they wouldn't open. I don't want the government telling me I have to "reflect" any more than I want them to demand that I attend a church.
