No buying continues - to be continued
He goes from that D.C. to well, then we should go to City Hall & the Federal Building.
I want to tell him to organize his own damn protest at City Hall and/or the Fed Building.
But instead I tell him, we’ve been there too – but they’re not open today; they’re not buying or selling today – this mall is.
He thinks it’s unfair – the one day that retailers get to figure out if they are going to go from operating in the red to operating in the black – thus Black Friday – and we’re trying to fuck it up. Yes we are.
I ask him if it’s fair that soldiers are not able to shop today, that Iraqis shops are closed down, that Iraqis went from full employment pre-US invasion to 70% unemployment since the invasion?
