Alot of the stores have electronics up to 50% off and clothing 75%
I dont know if I want to fight my way through the insanity, some of these people are nuts???

prices will drop as x-mas nears..:)

Obama will save us....hahahahahahahhahaaaa

I`m watching Hillary Clinton accept her new job, wow who would have guessed?

Bill Clinton still pulls the strings, back to the same old same old Democratic past.

I`m might as well start learning Chinese, Clinton started all the outsoursing
its really not Bush`s fault the ecomony is all f`d up, even though hes a liar dickhead!

I hope so, because the Black Friday deals weren't that great at all. Who the heck wants to wait outside in the cold for 5 hours to get a tv for an "ok" price. I mean if they really were 50-70% off... well maybe.

get in line with my blanket and a pillow in front of the wal-mart

Did you hear about the walmart employee that got trampled to death when the crowds rushed in at the Long Island Walmart? A guys life seemed meaningless when people wanted to save $3, jeez.

Walmart doesnt pay very well, I couldnt imagine waking up in the morning and having to deal with these insane shoppers, they rather kill you than smile at somebody.....

Ive been to NYC cant say I`m very fond of it...armpit of America

Not only does it not pay well, I'd say it pays horribly. Who can afford to live at minimum wage? I'm surprised their employees dont steal to even out their wages, lol.

Walmart also cuts peoples hours so they are below 32, and they aren't required to offer health benefits. So the people they have working are poor and cant see a Dr. Cheap bastards.

I cant understand how anybody could live off the wages they pay
One must have two or three jobs at that rate.

I feel lucky, but my future is uncertain also??
I`m glad I worked hard the past 20 years, I might just give up the job and do some traveling, see the world while I have the chance?

Many of my friends have lost almost everything, its sad times indeed

America will bounce back , I have faith in the people not the government

Of course.
I have a great respect for North America, great place and a lot of wonderful people.
A little hard ship could help the country but it is sad to see people loosing their homes.

True, maybe weve become to complicit, time to get back to work and fire up the money making machine, we can do it, without another war..please!!

Having a screwed up government for the past decade really hurt us..
We will be back, we have too:)

Same hear America is good and will bounce back it's a roll costar ride that's all! And as for Wall Mart well I think we need places like that to keep the unemployment lower and there are people willing to work for $8 an hour!

Walmart pays minimum wage, not $8. I think the only good reason to have these stores is that they are cheap to buy in. But as for lowering unemployment? I think unemployment compensation from the state is higher than the weekly wage at Walmart.

I think they need a union, lol

Aren't they cheap because they get raw materials abroad and produce the items in. well lets say less than comfortable sweat shops in other countries?

On one hand you have people buying cheap, on the other a loss of jobs for Americans.
I do not have the answer but I think it is a point.

$300 a week
I`ve had bigger bar tabs
No wonder why people are making such desperate decisions

its the governments fault, greed is killing America

The Walmart in question is on Long Island - not in NY City.
NYC is FAR from being the armpit of America, but not far from it. I think that honor goes to Elizabeth, NJ - you can smell it from miles away. There are plenty of places in the USA far worse than NYC and, quite frankly, few that are better.
