BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Shoppers waited out in the cold wet weather for hours. When the doors opened at 4 a.m. the Black Friday chaos turned ugly.

I post this because many people rail against New World Order and being managed as if we were cattle. Are we civilized enough to live without being managed and controlled by the elite? Or would we degenerate to cannibalistic tribal herds in their absence? I am a big advocate of personal freedom but I am beginning to wonder how much freedom this animal farm could handle...

For every person who has never been to the United States. This is our country! We rush to the stores to purchase over priced junk and feel like we're getting a good deal. God Bless America.

Another herd stampedes...
Cambodia Stampede

I think we overestimate our ability for independent thought and action. I bet more than 99% of our actions are done just because other herd-members are doing it.

No. we don't. I find it sad that you would present the US in such a global way. You don't speak for the majority and are in fact part of the problem by perpetuating the stereotype.

______________________________
Black Friday is 100% commercialism - it's powerful marketing strategy and is so "in your face" that it's now taking over Thanksgiving Day, as well. I find it truly disgusting, but there will always be people who find it "thrilling" I guess. Personally, there is nothing I can think of, that would get me to participate in it and every person I know would agree with me.

There are but mere handfuls of shepherds amongst the myriad of sheep; few people see it, but this is the world how it's always been. It's not getting any better, I fear we will be repeating ourselves for years to come.


I hope I'm wrong though; god do I hope I'm wrong though.

I consider this survival of the fittest. If you are stupid enough to go to Target at the opening of Black Friday, then nature will take care of you.

Furthermore, if you are going to Target at the opening of Black Friday, you better be physically fit enough to handle yourself in the crowd, not be some fat out-of-shape grandma.

Think people. Think. Or die.

I have never shopped on Black Friday, I do everything on line and have for years, I don't like to shop any day unless it's absolutely necessary, don't do lunch either.

This is why the ptb can easily get peopel to do gang stalking or mobbing as you call it.

Amazing the herd. Americans stamp over people every year in these things.

I love this time of year.

It should be illegal to be this entertained by such nonsense.

You know, I avoid target and shopping on black friday mainly because the deals don't seem that good.. and because I don't want to get trampled by a dozen mildly over weight soccer moms that want 3 dollar toasters.

Have ya'll even seen the discounts you receive from the 2-Day Only Sales Event they are having at Target for Black Fri/Sat?

but the issue i have with your analogy is farmers want the freedom to slay a fox for thanksgiving instead of a turkey. the issue isnt how can i give rights as a farmer to a barn of animals. and i have read and seen animal farm so i know your euphemism is mistaken on my part.

i think black friday is necessary; as necessary as millions of americans spending money on goods grown in america once a year; to americans buying products at an inflated controlled price from countries that buy the imposed debt of said americans.

if it takes a black friday for a person to realize they have the freedom to buy their ps3 or digital camera or first hd tv while they slave away in a barn making eggs or eating from a trough to get fat for a slaughter then so be it.

About two years ago my town had a gas shortage. The governor of our state notified the citizens that over the next week gas supplies would be short and to ration gas accordingly. I got into work that day and everyone was asking if I had filled up my gas before coming into work. I said no I had a little over half a tank.

On my way home I drove by gas stations with people fighting at the pumps, and police cars stationed at every gas station. The next day, all the gas stations had signs that they had no gas. Good thing my work was only 5 miles from my home, I thought I would be able to wait it out. Every time a gas station got a shipment of gas it would be gone in under an hour. The people were raving lunatics, hogging all the gas. Many were bringing extra gas cans which started a majority of assaults at the pumps. Gas stations eventually limited gas purchases to $10 total per vehicle but people would just go down the road to the next gas station and get another $10 worth.

After about a week my tank was nearly gone, and no gas within driving distance. On fumes I drove up the interstate 30 miles and found a gas station with plenty of gas. I drove back with a full tank and laughed the next day as I saw people clamoring to get their $10 in gas.

Point in case, Americans are greedy bastards. While this is no rule of thumb and there are many very kind people in America. However, there is this sentiment of "me first" when their is competition to get something and a limited supply of it. This ugly part of Americans I want nothing to do with and consider it the downfall of our nation. Like the video you posted, most Americans can not think about cause and effect of their actions further than what is directly in front of them. They feel entitled to step and push others to get to their goal. I think corporate America has imparted on us very bad values indeed.
