Black Friday 2008

Something has made me extremely angry, and has compelled me enough to begin writing in my blog. If you have not heard what happened today at a Wal-Mart in Valley Stream, then please read this article from Newsday.,0,167903.story

A part time worker was killed this morning, when a stampede of early morning shopper - estimated at 2,000 shoppers - trampled the man to his death, after physically breaking down the front doors of a Wal-Mart in Valley Stream located at the Green Acres mall. Is this a joke? Did this really happen? Did these f*cking people really have to get into that store that badly to buy some sh*tty merchandise? Okay the economy is bad, people are having a hard time, and Wal-Mart is a great place to buy some cheap merchandise, and from what I saw on their website, some very low prices on some electronics. Wonderful. I still can not believe that this has happened, and I hope to god this gets national coverage so people can see what a joke this is. How are we in such a psychotic state that people would be waiting outside starting 3am to get into this store for some "deals" that still are not really deals? How are we so fooled by the illusion that is "Black Friday?" The hell is Black friday anyway?!?

Let me stop ranting for a second and make some sense of this. A man who was trying to make some extra money by working at Wal-Mart was trampled to death by a mob of lunatics who are buying christmas gifts. Right, remember christmas? Yeah.

To whom was involved, you better turn yourself in. I do not know how you can live with yourself with what you have done to this poor man. It is not fair to him and his family that he had to die because you were trying to save a few dollars on some sh*t you do not need.

God bless America.
