I guess you're okay with the folks at the power company working thanksgiving so you can post your sad drivel on the internets. Hypocrite. :x

Pathetic strawman. Electricity has to keep going, fucktard. Stores don't have to be open. Next you'll claim I would call for hospitals to close and let the patients die.
Why do you hate sick people?
I don't. They make me feel healthy by comparison. Just like you and Lister make me look smart.

There are services that must be maintained, and the peeps who see to that get (or should, at the very least) well paid to do it. Others are, no doubt, being hosed by their employers for the sake of a fucking buck.

Human is as human does.

Not going to get into an argument about who's getting paid what and why or why not they ought to get paid more for working on a bloody holiday. Fucking pointless. Not resolvable except to say that it's up to each and everyone of us, in the face of abuse by an employer, to tell said employer to go fuck themselves. Easier said than done for someone living paycheck to paycheck or worse, I realize that.

No answer for that one here.

Oh, and fuck.

Only because there's $2.50 sales tax.

Yes, to suport the welfare system that suports the poor fuckers that are not geting paid today becacause of dicks like you that didn't shop today thus causing them to get laid of.

Next thing you'l want a $1.75 minimum wage. Why don't you just go back to north korea.
