69. I mean no offense
But in my opinion, to blame Walmart entirely, would be a severe injustice. Blame them, of course, to the extent that they are guilty. But why absolve these people who knew full well what they were doing? It just sickens me. No one needs a new gizmo, toy, or whatever the hell it is, that much. There is no logical reason they could not have acted as civilized human beings - they rushed, driven by greed. So Walmart's greed, their own greed, and both the stampede of imbeciles and the greedy fuckers in charge of this promotion are to blame.

I'm not one of those who believes greed in any form is wrong. But this time, it clearly is beyond wrong.
