ABC Calls Black Friday An 'Orgy Of Capitalism'

It's enough to make an MSMer nostalgic for the good old days of the Soviet Union, when the masses didn't stampede into stores because there was little of interest to buy and little money to buy it with, and the good stuff was reserved for the ruling elites at special shops.

Here's how ABC's Dan Harris opened today's Good Morning America: "This morning, Black and Blue Friday.  America's annual orgy of capitalism gets dicey."  Capitalism?  Really?  Is that the problem?  View the video after the jump.



Yes, if only we could get rid of capitalism, imagine how much better off we'd be.  If only we had a president who wants to "ask" the "rich" to give up more because "they don't need it."  Oh, wait!
