Jennifer Waters writes, "Why are retailers ruining Thanksgiving?" Don't blame the retailers! It’s greedy shoppers who are ruining not only Thanksgiving, but also the whole meaning of Christmas! Put the blame squarely where it belongs – on these shop-till-you-drop, spend-even-if-you-can't-afford-it IDIOTS! The retailers don't force morons to camp out for weeks, or stand in long lines overnight, or stampede through stores, cause traffic jams, and act like the world will end if they don't get their bratty children the latest expensive gadget!
(Speaking of shopping: to those of you who think Wal-Mart is yet another evil corporation -- just shut up already. Like Obama, you loathe successful businesses and businessmen, but most of us admire them. To those of you about to go on strike, if you hate working at Wal-Mart so much, quit! I'm sure there are plenty of Americans willing to take your jobs. Besides, your president certainly doesn't mind adding more people to the unemployment, welfare, disability, and food stamp rolls.)
