From The Idiot Factor:
Each year Black Friday, that crass commercial kick off to the Christmas shopping season, starts at different times. This year they want to start it tomorrow a full week before Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is the usual kick off holiday to the shopping holiday. Thanksgiving is its own holiday with its own traditions. It is usually hi-jacked by Corporate America, which uses this tradition to make huge profits. This year retail shopping outlets want to start a week early. This is the most important shopping day to US corporations that want to make their top-line of profits for the holiday seasons. The holidays have their own meanings, but Corporate America wants and feels the need to make a huge profit this year and every year. It is capitalisms most disgusting display of greed and it happens every year in the US.
