    I saw that many are using pepper spary and even (supposedly) someone was killed? All taking place in Walmart's! Yeah, I'll stay home!
    Update 12:17 p.m. ET: A robot removed a suspicious device that led to the evacuation of a Walmart store in Cave Creek, Ariz., Maricopa County, sheriff's deputies said.
    Deputies told KPHO-TV of Phoenix that they had reason to believe the device might have been an explosive and said whoever left it in a refrigerator at the store Thursday could face felony charges. Police dogs swept the store for further possible devices, they said, and the store reopened late Thursday night, KPHO reported.

    Talk about "civil unrest"! What I can't understand is why people are so determined to buy crap they don't need, with money they don't have, or can't afford? But that' just me...I did see Walmart had some good deals on Rifles though! Hmmmm.....Nah,..I am Not goin' there!

    In Positive Economic Sign, Walmart Customers Killing Each Other to Buy ****

    Pepper Spraying, Homicide Bullish Indicators, Economists Say

    MINNEAPOLIS (The Borowitz Report) – In what economists are hailing as a clear sign of economic recovery, Walmart customers across the USA jammed into stores on Black Friday, sometimes killing each other to buy useless ****.

    “We have been looking for evidence that the economy is on the mend,” said Davis Logsdon, chairman of the economics department at the University of Minnesota. “When people resort to homicide to buy a Blu-ray player, that is very, very good news indeed.”

    Mr. Logsdon said he was “impressed” by the lengths to which some Walmart customers were going to grab coveted sale items: “They’re using tactics we usually associate with the UC-Davis police.”

    With many customers using pepper spray and other weapons to get a shopping advantage, however, Mr. Logsdon advised Americans not to enter a Walmart unarmed.

    “If you want to get your hands on a doorbuster, you’d better have a firearm,” he said. “Fortunately, Walmart is offering several great doorbusters on firearms.”

    Walmart and other retailers’ decision to commence their Black Friday sales a day early carries with it an added benefit for consumers, he noted: “Now, Americans will be able to declare bankruptcy one day earlier.”

    All in all, Dr. Logsdon said that the increased violence and mayhem at retail outlets across the country was “a testament to the greatness of the American consumer.”

    “Egyptians risk their lives for new government,” he said. “Americans bravely do the same for new flat screens.”
