Mark Dice is a far right wing-nut and a hero to our biggest fan here at AATTP, Ragin’ Rob Kinnison, but even a broken clock is right twice a day. This time he has some valid points.
Black Friday, and its new sibling Gray Thanksgiving, are an unnecessary burden on the over-worked and under-paid employees of stores like Walmart. These scams are perpetuated on us in the name of higher corporate profits in order to jack up year-end bonuses for the boys in the front offices, as well as the net-worth of Sam Walton’s billionaire progeny.
Dice does take it a bit too far when he refers to the shoppers as parasites on the nation, but his point that we are turning all of our holidays over to the gods of greed is a good one.
At least when he is doing something like this he is not out collecting signatures on phony petitions to repeal the First Amendment but only for conservatives, in a lame attempt to “prove” that all liberals hate the Constitution and will sign anything if they think that Obama approves of it.
It is too bad that it is the shoppers who he places all the blame on. After all they wouldn’t be there in the first place if Mark’s corporate masters had not lured them out with the promise of huge bargains.
