The mainstream media has done a great job of concealing the economic predicament Americans have been facing for the past 5 years.

If there is an increase in holiday spending this year, it's obvious the numbers are bogus.

I so hate the liberal MSM!

The headlines on Friday and Saturday is that there was "massive turnout and sales."

Then they sneak in the reality that sales declined.

Of course, I will do most of mine online, and already have most Christmas gifts purchased before this past weekend.
