      I'm humbled so many people are interested in this cause. Another petition on here, Jenny's petition, has gained a lot of momentum and is being used as the "rally cry" by a lot of different STOP Black Thursday groups.

      Please check it out if you like. As always, if you don't like what's going on, vote with your pocket-book!! Stay at home on Thursday (and Friday if you wish) and start a new Thanksgiving tradition.

      Thanks! I hope all of you have the Best Thanksgiving Ever!

      Target: Don't take away Thanksgiving!

      Dear Gregg W. Steinhafe, Family has always been important to me and Thanksgiving is all about family. I love seeing family that we haven't seen in years and spending time with each other on the only day when we can all get together.

      Retail workers need to be spending the day off at home. People don't realize that they have to be at the stores a lot earlier to set up for the shoppers. This is ridiculous.

      We have lost sight of what helped make this nation the greatest on earth. Our pursuit of the almighty dollar taken a terrible toll on our true values.
