Well, a new low point in the "consumer economy" was experienced yesterday at the Valley Stream, Long Island N.Y. Green Acres Walmart. Some patrons who had waited through the night for sales at the store on Black Friday (named for it's ability to boost retail earnings into the black) trampled 34 year old store employee Jdimytai Damour (who later died) during the rush to save a few dollars on jeans, vacuum cleaners and flat screen TVs.

When the store opened consumers "tore the doors off their hinges" when they moved through the entrance!

Were these "retail patrons" Godless atheists, or may be Cannabis users trying to score their "herbs"? No. Guess again.


I'll bet they were just some regular God fearing, property destroying, alcohol using tax payers anxious to save some cash during a recession.


Did I mention these were adults?
Next time, get out of their way......!

What a sad day for Humanity and the family of the deceased.

Life is more valuable than consumer goods, from an atheist perspective.

Looks like those consumers have become "Dangerous Drug Avoiders" like in the movie THX1138.

I saw something similar about 35 years ago at a store in a Nashville suburb. I thought my mother-in-law was going to get into a fist fight. I still don't understand it.

Sad, very, very sad. What does it say about our culture when we become so barbaric over stuff? These are probably the same folks who say they'll boycott Wal-Mart for support gays...

When I read about that it I felt sick. People behave like absolute animals sometimes when it comes to shopping. I'm so glad I no longer work in that sort of environment.
