Or I could do neither and stay home instead to eat leftovers and relax on my day off. Guy soulded like a jerk and it would have been funnier if the cops in front of the store had arrested him.

I can't wait in lines on black friday because it requires standing too close to people who are different.

For all my ex-wife's faults, she was wise enough to prohibit me from purchasing a bullhorn or megaphone or pretty much any voice-amplifying device.

... and now I know what I'm buying myself for Christmas.

They keep the greeters and door openers to the sides now, out of the way of the stampede. They tie a string to the door hand and pull them open from a safe location now.

I was really hoping that he would say something a lot funnier rather then right wing bullshiat.

YOU ARE NOT SAVING ANY MONEY BUYING GOODS YOU DO NOT NEED. YOU ARE NOT GETTING A GREAT DEAL.

The bit about credit card debt was pretty damn good, as well as the line about workers, but Illuminati? The fiscal cliff? Hyperinflation? fail, fail, fail.

I came in here to say this as well. Some of his points are reasonable and clear, but then he muddies the waters with the "illuminati" bullshiat.

I can't help but think that someone - perhaps even several people here - could do this with more cutting wit and less conspiratorial bombast.

Ah well, there's always next year.

So, let me make sure I got this right. In the video he's driving around and using a bullhorn to berate people and call them names because they're waiting to buy stuff. Then the end of the video is basically an ad for his book that he's selling on Amazon.

Mixed messages much?

Perhaps, but "idiots lining up to buy stuff they don't need with money they don't have" sums up this whole phenomenon pretty nicely.

True I suppose.

45% of people in a recent poll would like to opt out of Christmas. Working on year four of that myself though some family whine about it.

'What do you want for Christmas?' 'The same thing I'm getting everyone else. Absolutely nothing. Let's do the togetherness and dinner thing and forgo the rest.'

Unfortunately he's pretty much correct.

The more we allow easy money and credit and individuals to run up debt, the worse this country will get.

I remember when I went to college in the late 90s, I got a CC and my folks had to co-sign for it and the limit was $500. Now any kid can get a CC pretty much anywhere from any store with thousands of dollars in credit.

With credit you create false demand for goods and services and when the music stops, the cost of those goods and services usually has been inflated to artificial levels due to the easy money/credit (see housing, etc).

Certainly. Credit is itself a means to an end. Easier access to credit allows for a greater purchasing ability for the consumer in a rational demand curve (Rational meaning they are bound by the normal restrictions of money limits - People like the Walton or Gates families are beyond the curve and are an entirely different subsection of economic theory). With access to credit, an individual's possibilities are magnified beyond the scope of those in a cash-only setting.

Some functions of credit provide net positives (owning a home, buying a car, going to school, getting a loan to start a small business, etc) when the one with the debt turns the capital into a long term source of income and wealth. Some functions of credit are direct drains on the consumption class (payday loans for example), since the higher interest and penalties shuffles upward to the capital class without providing a stimulative effect other than a justification for continuing existing businesses. Such a system is inherantly flawed since for those on the absolute bottom rungs, there are no other sources of available credit (and perhaps justifiably so at times) besides high risk. It becomes a tax on being poor since anyone in a more solid financial setting does not need to use payday advance loans.

Where JC22 is wrong, however, is the lumping of all credit into the same category and declaring it a negative on society. Thrift is the antithesis of a consumption-based system, but it is necessary for long term economic stability for the individual (which is why Keynesianism is for MACRO-scale decisions). And consumption-based systems can only sustain themselves if ALL income levels are forced to artificially consume - pass a law requiring those outside the normal demand curve for consumer goods to spend the same proportion of income for product X (clothes, food, gas, computer parts, etc) as a poor person. Without the forced consumption, the marginally propensity to save becomes exponentially greater as total wealth increases and income stagnates in the upper echelons. That's been happening since the 80s and it DOES NOT WORK for the long term.

A rational economist supports credit as a means, but also realizes that the way to keep growth in the face of globalization and almost zero price floor for labor is to innovate and educate, not cut credit access. A smarter workforce is more productive (and also significantly less likely to need the high risk services I outlined earlier) and stable. In time, consumption trends for an established consumer class can be discovered and the capital class can resume earning profit on the added value through owning labor.

The downside to that plan is it is very boring. There is NOTHING exciting about regulated, safe growth with moderately predictable returns and income extrapolation. People hate that. But blaming the problem of income stagnation for the consumption class on the availability of credit without understanding the fundamentals of derived value through labor is idiotic. In no uncertain terms, it is idiotic.

Austrian theory only works when everyone starts off equally and all labor is fungible.

Heckles black Friday shoppers...

While I too feel bad for the store employees who have to work on Thanksgiving, would chew glass before I went shopping on black Friday or Thanksgiving night, and tend to look down on people who do... I'd choose black Friday shoppers 7 days a week and twice on Sunday over a self-righteous, attention whore prick who thinks it's cool to go accuse a bunch of strangers of being evil morons to their faces just because they're trying to get some deals Thanksgiving night.

I'm fairly sure movie theaters are open Thanksgiving too. Why doesn't this jackarse go heckle movie-goers for oppressing theater employees. Or go door to door and berate football fans because they're causing NFL stadium workers in 3 cities to miss their thanksgiving meal. I don't doubt he would plan this for next year if he could figure out how to get a crowd to watch.
