Saw two guys camping outside of Best Buy in Mount Pleasant today. Is it really worth saving a couple hundred bucks on a TV?

I think a lot of people do it for the "experience" of doing it, the tradition of doing it every year, etc. Something fun to do with their friends, their Mom, etc.
Plus it's also now a huge national thing so I think people like being a part of it.

True story. I'm a six-year Black Friday veteran. Every year after waiting in lines for hours I say never again. Yet, I'm there again the next year. I can't help it.

I think retailers should stick to Black "FRIDAY" and not open until Friday morning. Midnight Friday is bad enough but 9 and 10 p.m. ON Thanksgiving Thursday? Come on, retailers. Enough. Show some respect for the holiday.

Yeah....I heard the guy who's been outside of Best Buy since Tuesday on the radio. Honestly, he sounded like a guy who probably had nothing better to do anyway :) Just saying...
Personally, I've never had the attention span for Black Friday.

Buy, buy, buy. Ring up your credit card to support China. Then when the bills come in join the OWS crowd.
Give the gift of energy.

US corps took the jobs to China. Don't blame the Chinese for working. Blame the US corps for taking jobs out of the US. Don't buy from US corps in China.
