    I bet not one of these people has an ounce of silver or a package of freeze dried food. When the collapse comes their cheap phone or flat screen TV will be useless. Like the typical consumer lowlifes, it is all about getting theirs right now, gimme gimme gimme. When the cheap stuff is gone, when their entitlements die, so will they.

    The average American has less than $500 in savings and would be homeless if denied two paychecks from an employer or their entitlement parasite check. Rest assured, these Einsteins were using their high interest slavery credit cards.

    Interesting to watch the trailer trash go to town though. Like a science experiment with rats. (Edit: I have been very poor in my life and still acted with honor and dignity; trailer trash by their actions, not by a bank balance or job status, just to be clear)

    "Black Friday: because only in America people trample each other for sales exactly one day after being thankful for what they already have."

    Wow. The quote about black friday being exactly one day after supposedly being thankful for what we already have really puts it in perspective. Black friday is what's wrong with this once-great nation.

    I love this comment from a reviewer of the movie Idiocracy:

    "The smartest, the most fit among us no longer procreate while the stupid screw their brains out ensuring that the human race as a whole gets stupider and stupider and stupider. Without any natural predators to thin the herd; with science, welfare, and television keeping the dumbest alive, healthy, and happy enough to remain potent we're done for. Evolution will take its course and centuries from now we'll become a planet full of Bam Margeras."

    "The future is full of idiots who've thrown everything they have into buying Big-Gulps and watching porn. The most popular television show is called "Ow, My Balls" and features exactly what you'd expect. The highest grossing movie of all time is called ***, and consists of 90 minutes of the same naked, hairy butt on screen farting itself silly. America has gone to hell in a hand basket. Garbage avalanches are common, crops have failed, and people are staving, all because there's no one left who's smart enough to know how to fix any of it."

    Amazing, i don't thing anything is worth acting like a crazed animal to save a few bucks. man seeing those people make me glad I am who and what i am.
    I will say the even though the local Walmart was crowded the was none of the insanity shown in the videos.
    i would hate to see what those people do when a emergecy hits.

    Home Depot had no issues, staff was very helpful and knowledgeable, and I found great prices on some tools i have wanted for a long time. The clerk even had someone bring my lumber and other purchaces to the covered loading area so i would not get wet.

    Until they bring back the Coliseum with gladiators, Christians and lions, or criminals fighting one another Black Friday is as close as I'll get to reliving the golden days of Rome.

    I just wish they'd arm the crowds with knives.

    If any aliens are up there watching us, please push the button on the death star.

    Thanks in advance

    In all seriousness though, it seems to be the case that the majority of the scenes similar to the OP are in well, places where you would expect them to be. My wife and her mom go every year as kind of a tradition. She went to Target last night right at opening (9:00 PM), got everything on her list, and was in and out in half hour. She said everyone was pretty well behaved.

    Broads:rolleyes:

    Not sure where your reviewer is from or when but facts are better then pure bull.

    The two highest grossing films to date appear to be Avatar a Movie about humans greed. And Titanic a movie about mans vanity. Both about the tragedy those attributes can bring.

    I actually ventured out today. Wasn't like that at all where I went. But, then again, I went to Bi-Mart and Coastal Farm.

    I'm guessing folks are more respectful of their fellow customer when, as in my case, the fellow customer is holding as much ammunition as he can carry.

    Depending on where you're at and what clientele the place you go normally attracts, BF is normally a non-issue. I was down at West Coast Armory in Factoria earlier and - outside of the longer-than-normal line for the range the shop wasn't at all frantic and people were being respectful.

    That said, big props to the WCA customer support crew. Every time I've gone in there they've been fantastic. I was dropping a rifle off to get a little work done by their gunsmith and they made time to get it done today vs. having me wait a couple of weeks. Plus they're reopening Sam's in another two/three weeks.

    Yup, then they will be armed. In effect, all hell will break loose. And I doubt anyone will be stupid enough to stand around filming it.

    Then again....... Maybe they will.

    Already in my Netflix que, should be entertaining enough.

    Mankind, a flawed, insignificant and backward species won't be around for much longer so we might as well laugh at ourselves; the best medicine.

    So when your relatives pass on, I can have their stuff?
    No Bill of Rights? I mean those things allow you certain entitlements right?

    That's what you mean by no entitlements right?
    Or just "no entitlements" under certain parameters?

    Entitlements as referenced in my original post were referring to government aid, food stamps, welfare payments, bloated gov jobs/salaries, etc - that sort of thing. The things that will be pushed off the cliff when hyper/super inflation hits and the dollar breathes it last breath. 0% interest will not go on forever while the private Fed is throwing trillions to foreign banks like free candy. When the Ponzi ends, so will all the free support end also. Then all the people in the first video will be acting the same, but only on the streets, in your neighborhood. eventually.

    Oh yea the human race is about to face extinction. WHAT BULL there are 7 BILLION people on Earth. If 99.99% die off the population of the earth will still be 700,000 Thats plenty of seed to keep humanity going.

    Granted it might be a while before you can buy a 50" plasma at Best Buy again. But the Human race will still be around.
