The consumerism is way out of hand and the pushing and shoving of holiday gifts is too much. Stop tearing our american families away from their tables and keep a Holiday a Holiday for all. This is a crisis for the families who work for these stores and for the families feeling forced to make the decision to get that special deal you might otherwise be unable to afford or stay home with your family. The spectacular deals they offer are rarely able to be had because of the limited numbers anyway. But people get duped into thinking they could get it. This preying consumerism needs to stop. and I hope you join me in not shopping this holiday at ANY store that opens on Thanksgiving.

      You big retailers are gradually re-introducing slavery back into our society. You guys suck. All you care about is making money for your investors who already have plenty of money! You give full-timers much less than 40 hours a week so they will never have the chance to earn time-and-a-half. You hand out foodstamp applications to your new hires because you want taxpayers to subsidize the little salary you pay! I know your tricks. You don't care if people can't afford to pay for their own place to live. You would be happy to employ nobody but teenagers living with their parents if you could. But if YOUR retail chain thinks that way, and another thinks that way, then ALL the chains will think that way and we won't have anybody in America who is able to afford housing! Except a handful of smart people who are professionals like architects, doctors and lawyers. Can't you see that you are helping to eliminate the middle class!? Not everybody has the capability to be a professional! Stop making people stock your shelves and ring up customers and spend many hours laboring for you while you laugh to yourselves in the boardroom as you find ways to pay less and less each year! And on top of that, you are making employees get up from their Thanksgiving table to serve your needs? F you!

      Thanksgiving is a day for Family and Friends to be together and "give thanks" for the love they share, and the life they have TOGETHER! They should not be separated so the large businesses can get richer! There is absolutely no reason to steal this time away from Families, other than to line the pockets of the filthy rich! They will be with their families, I am sure!!! NOT RIGHT!!! NOT FAIR!!!

      We should support a society where family values are more important than profits. I will boycott any store for the rest of 2012 who opens on Thanksgiving.

      This could be a movement back to family first values.
