maybe not having jobs kept people away from stores too? As well as the prospect of not having jobs for the forceable future due to obama’s policies…

Maybe we are all just tired of buying a bunch of junk to celebrate what was once a religious holiday!

Its doubtful that a deal would be reached so soon. The president may have cut short his holidays, but Republicans will be happy to sit quietly.

“Many investors said concerns about the “fiscal cliff” kept shoppers away from stores, suggesting markets may struggle to gain any ground until that issue is resolved.”

This is just hilarious. Concerns about the fiscal cliff kept shoppers away from stores….right. While the media, Washington and Wall Street talk about the fiscal class, the rest of America is wondering where the jobs are. Of course neither the media, Washington or Wall Street want to talk about that.

Maybe it’s the reality of America that kept them away. Cost of basic goods and services? Wondering if America is just about dog eat dog capitalism, a (fixed) game of winners (the few) and losers (the many) run by elites in the media, Washington (both sides fools) and Wall Street. They’re wondering why education is being destroyed and why corporate universities have gotten away with skyrocketing tuition for so many years. The push for standardization is a push for a test prep industry that not everyone can afford. So much for education being the great equalizer, vaporized. The setup here is going to be a disastrous future.

Corporatocracy, plutocracy, oligarchy, choose your adjective.

Fiscal cliff: How much more can the wealthy take at the expense of everyone else. Go on, sell me that Horatio Alger BS.

I wonder how many people are shopping locally as opposed to the mass marketing stores?

So it looks like a deal can not be reached so soon. Then spending cut will automatically kick in. Its the unintended consequences that will look scary.
