Greedy Fucktard Retail Corporations

As stores up the ante with earlier holiday hours that creep into Thanksgiving night, Black Friday is turning into Black Thursday, and some shoppers and employees aren't happy about it.

•Toys R Us said Monday that it will open at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving, an hour earlier than last year and the earliest of any retailer so far this year.

•Walmart will open at 10 p.m., two hours ahead of last year's midnight opening.
So how about this: Pay the employees triple-time on a purely voluntary basis. Any supervisor who pressures anyone to work who doesn't want to give up their Thanksgiving would be tied to a post outside the store and flogged.

What is the point of having a national holiday if the retail fuckers open their stores for the pathetic losers who cannot go a day without throwing their money down on the checkout counter? Veterans' Day has already been gutted into a meaningless prostration to the Gods of Consumerism. Cannot we keep one holiday in this country safe from the grasping of the retail corporations?

...because, of course, the only reason Christmas sales figures suffer is because of the decreasing amount of hours available between one arbitrary point in time and Christmas.

Of course.

And how many will die in the ginned up opening frenzy?
