Two reasons for me keep me away from the malls at this time of year: The crowds and the parking. Who needs it? Especially when so much can be bought online these days.

There are great advantages to living the somewhat hermitlike lifestyle I have chosen. When society starts to look like this, I don't want to be social.

I went very briefly in the afternoon. Once the morning mayhem is over and the tent city is cleaned up the day is pretty much like any other. Hard to tell there was any kind of special shopping event at all.

More evidence of a culture in decline. So sad.

Black Friday Brawl At Roseville Galleria Caught On Tape

ROSEVILLE (CBS13) – Fists flew during a Black Friday fight at the Roseville Galleria as three men trade blows, knocking down a display. They were possibly fighting over a pair of shoes.

It happened in the middle of the mall, as families watched in horror.

The sea of chaos was the last thing Lawrence Corpus thought he’d see while Black Friday shopping with his family at the Westfield Galleria.

“It could have easily become a riot,” said Corpus.

But when fists started flying, Corpus pulled out his iPhone and began recording.

“I know a guy took the top of a trash can and actually threw it at (one of the other men),” witness Chase said.

If you ever decide to move north and need a like minded neighbor, let me know. I'll help you find a remote house in the woods.

I'm one of those people who might not get further than a couple hundred yards from the house for a month at a time. I start the van and truck to let them run more than I start them to drive them.

If this is how “they” act when (sometimes) paying for stuff, imagine the chimping-out when the real SHTF.

PS...since we’re in a PC world, by chimping-out, I refer to those of the human species who act like animals. And they come in all sizes and colors.

Draw your own conclusions...but these cautionary tales should be added to the Prepper PING list.

I did that for over a year in the mountains of New Mexico. In an 8x12 shack that I built. ;)

I'm here on my home ground until I get carried off. I was born here, I'll die here... (insert Gabby Johnson rant).

Probably just me but Arundel Mills surprised me. I never had any issues when shopping at the Burlington Coat Factory or Costco there. I guess what is scary is I go to that location rather than Gaithersburg or Wheaton. ... sigh.

The so-called “men” stealing a boy’s shopping bag outside Bed Bath & Beyond oughta be beaten within an inch of their lives once caught. I will not patronize Arundel Mills Mall or patronize Maryland Live! casino because that’s always been a bad neighborhood and because you can’t smoke in the casino.

The city streets are instant death for someone who isn't used to living in the jungle. The malls are not as bad but getting just like the streets - roving herds of subhumans hit the malls from time to time.

Do you recall when the USA was actually civilized? I remember, many years ago, going into the city alone as a kid, walking home in the city from school, church, friends. I remember my grandmother doing the same thing.

Yes, we once had a civilization. Hold fast to those memories. They are just memories. All that is gone now.

Yep, the veneer of civilization is thin.

There is one primary reason that I don’t attend these shopping orgies.... I simply don’t like being around those that do.

Certainly there are ‘some’ nice folks that take advantage of the cost savings, but I don’t want to share the same air with the losers.

I was a kid in the 50s and compared to today, it was like being on a different planet. At least I have those fond memories.

Me too. The last 15 years have been like living on a different planet; makes me a little anxious about how bad it will be 10 years from now.

“Societal breakdown, mayhem, etc.”

A few thousand years ago it was dancing around a golden calf. Now it is fighting over cell phones and sneakers.

Awww, that's unfair to some perfectly respectable primates. Wild chimps have better manners than that, if mainly because the ranking members of the chimp colony will soon show them the error of their ways if they don't.

Too bad that custom is dying out in homo americanus
