I don't want to get into one of my "commercialization of Christmas" rants, but my biggest issue with the whole Christmas shopping season is that Americans fall for this blatant scam every single year.
Now, I'm not here to fight the culture wars, but I do have an agenda: to tell you the truth – and point you toward "unreasonably" good profits.
With that said…
They already screwed up Christmas, and now they've screwed up my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving, with this destructive Black Friday con.
In fact, if I were ever CEO of a retailer, I'd gather all the executives during our first meeting and ask them, "What's your Black Friday strategy for next Thanksgiving?"
Anyone who had plans would be fired.
