I was mainly looking for very good ammo deals...saw none. The only other deal I thought was good was a Sharp 70” Aquos for $1798....my wife would have killed me was the only thing that stopped me, for sure.

Our local Walmart was a madhouse last night. I doubt if they have anything left over for their “Black Friday” sales. Unreal.

and as a byproduct, probably got a lot of shoppers very po'ed.

Confidential to Walmart: technology is your friend. Next time, at the stores targeted by the union with picketers, try a flash-mob sale on Air Jordans, etc., and see if the picketers can deal with the resulting feeding frenzy. I'll bet even the meanest union thug would wet his pants.

In that case, the union thug would drop his sign and rush into Wal-mart and buy those Air-Jordans!

I was disturbed to see a series of stories about Emerson flat-panel TVs purchased on Black Friday a year ago from Wal*Mart that not only died, but were covered by a warranty that required the customer to pay $70-100 to have the TV "diagnosed". The last story of the series noted that some manufacturers allegedly had short production runs of downgraded versions of their products specifically for the Black Friday crowd: these are not the same products they ship year round.

So, that makes two reasons not to shop on Black Friday: being trampled by the herd, and finding that the "screaming bargains" could well be a come-on.

I’ve never participated in Black Friday, but last night I was out driving past my local Target at 11:30. It was overflow in the parking lot with cars lined up on the street to get in. Crazy.

You couldn’t pay me enough to do that. It’s just not worth it.

You may be right....there was a sign on it that said “Ask associate for details”...

I was hoping to read stories of “picketers” being trampled by mobs of shoppers.

How ironic: Your wife going to kill you after you went looking for . . . Never mind. Run hale, me hearty friend.

Like many union protests, the union thugs had to bus in protestors here in the DFW area. Typical. Just for reference, I am referring to the protest at the Walmart off Wheatland Road in Dallas.

Actually Nov. 6th proved P.T. Barnum correct.

I’m disappointed. I was looking forward to reports of union picketers seriously trampled in the rush.

I went shopping at Wal-mart for groceries today and the place was DEAD! The parking lot was all but empty! I asked a clerk about it and she told me that they had such huge crowds in the wee small hours of the morning that it was bedlam then and she figures that everyone in the world showed up so early there wasn’t much need to get there later! I loved it. Both the empty store (for my own benefit!) and the fact that the so-called strike failed.
