26. between this guy being assaulted by police,
the idiot spraying pepper spray in another wal mart and then someone being shot during a botched robbery at yet another wal mart, I think that the time has come for wal mart to be avoided by reasonable people who have principles. I mean, one can go buy that same video game online from the comfort of their own home--anyone can buy what they need from home and have it delivered. Better still--patronize locally owned stores.

However, the problem is that the people who will convince themselves it's brilliant policy to go stand outside a walmart in the middle of the night to risk being trampled and assaulted for something that their kid will lose interest in 3 days after xmas are the very same people who do not and will not get what OWS is all about; that they, too, are part of the 99%; but like the 20 yr old idiot who was interviewed at the store where the shoppers were pepper sprayed said, they "don't care--they're there to get a TV". They are there to exercise their constitutional right to consume on an obscene scale, because that's what xmas is about to them. If they had any god damned sense whatsoever, they would have stayed home today to send a message to wal mart and other mega stores that they need to rely on the 1% to pull their asses through this retail hell of the next 4 weeks and not on the 99%, who do not have the disposable income to help those mega stores square their balance sheets.

That'll never happen because many of the 99% don't get that they actually are the 99%... that's something those godless, dirty hippies are, not them. They've got their barely above minimum wage job; fux noose tells them they have a right to spend their money on cheap ass Chinese bullshit and force the cashier to tell them "merry xmas" or else they'll have a tantrum right there in the store.

I am so sick of xmas and I still have a month to go til it's over.
