Black Friday Open Thread

Is that $20 DVD player really worth an assault charge?

  1. On election night Gordon was only about 3000 votes further behind than Ludwig. Gordon is still down about 27,000 but Ludwig seems to be ahead. Where is the Ludwig/Davidson race at today? Someone from both the Ludwig or Davidson must have crunched the numbers and could let the rest of us know where it stands today.

  2. A complet mystery to me!  Why?

    As pols sez, a $20 DVD player – or a PS – is worth the hassles, aggrevations, crowds, etc?  Let alone assault charges!

    This is one more symptom of how sick (read consumeristic) our society has become.  I opted out of “Christmas” decades ago.  One of the best decisions I ever made. 

    Two years ago I was in a pop. 1500 Mexican mountain town for Christmas.  Christmas eve, half the town dressed up – very simply, mind you – and crowded into the church for Mass. Outside on the plaza, other citizens brewed up vats of apple-cinnamon hot punch in the cold, crisp air.  The merchants put a few extra special toys out in the days leading up to Christmas, but no urgent messages to buy, buy, buy.  On Christmas Day, the stores opened later, if at all. 

    I could live with that type of Christmas.  Hey, wait!  That’s what we used to do here in America when I was a kid! It was a religious holiday with a whiff of mercantilism, not the other way around. 

    1. Encouraging free enterprise and all that.

      In all seriousness I love finding the perfect gift for my family members. I don’t go out on the day after Thanksgiving – I usually go during Bronco games – no crowds then.

      Why do we work so hard? A large part is to provide for our families. I don’t see how eliminating gift giving is anything more than puritan self-denial for no real reason.

      On the flip side seeing one of my daughters spend many happy hours with on of her gifts – that is wonderful. And I always get a couple of fantastic history books that are hours each of enjoyment for me.

      So go spend. Spend wisely, but spend.

      ps – for those who celebrate Christmas solely as the birth of Christ – I think they have a good point – for themselves.

  3. Those of you willing to celebrate Buy Nothing Day 2006, remember to buy nothing on that day.

    BND is not about hurting busnesses, it is about taking a step back from our consumer driven society for a day to realize the consiquences. It is about learning to enjoy life without spending a dollar. It is about making this holiday season about more than consumtion.

    There are many things you can do for a day without spending money.
    My favorite BND tradition is playing Monopoly.
    Start your own tradition. Commit to buy nothing for a day.

  4.   As I recall, Nathan Lamborn, Alan Phipps, Bo Rowland and of course, Randy Ankeney each had a criminal court proceedings scheduled for sometime after Nov. 7th. 
      Anyone know what became of any, or all, of these four cases? 
      Inquiring minds want to know…..

    1. Flying on Turkey day is actually better.  I have done both and always opt for TGiving.  Only better day of the year is flying on Christmas because even internationally flights are light, even in Asia.
