Online shoppers set new Thanksgiving day record

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 11/25/2022 7:45:02 PM

Americans set a new record Thanksgiving day record, spending $5.29 billion in online shopping on Thursday. Thursday's amount represented a 2.9% increase from last year. Shoppers typically spend about $2 billion to $3 billion online in one day, according to data shared by Adobe. Mobile shopping -- purchases made through smartphones -- accounted for 55% of online sales, an all-time record for Thanksgiving Day since 2012. Vivek Pandya, a lead analyst at Adobe, told CNBC that the increase was driven by demand, as consumers shrugged off record-high levels of inflation. Online sales haven't been driven higher by inflation like store sales, since e-commerce is largely made up of electronics, apparel and other durables

UPI, like AP is a shill for Biden and Dems. Don’t believe it, even with inflation.

Those figures, assuming they’re true, are for Thursday, Thanksgiving Day. Not Black Friday. Who goes shopping on Thanksgiving? Let’s see Friday’s sales.

What shopping I do is on line usually. I cant stand walmart, and I dont feel like battling the feral thugs who want to fight you for every sale. Its bad enough I have to carry a gun everywhere I go anymore. I shouldn't have to carry a short shotgun under my coat too. To heck with all that. Click click. Package is on the way.

Online shopping has been the way to go for me since I am disabled and cannot walk far. I will not go to a mall or downtown brick and mortar stores as limping along behind my rollator makes me EZ pickins for feral thugs who know they can attack old white ladies like me with impunity even though I pack my S&W 640. I can no longer go from shop to shop, only to not find the items for which I am looking. Online shopping offers me a wide variety of choices and prices and with all the Black Friday deals now being offered, with free shipping, all I have to do is click, "This is a gift" at check out, type in my loved ones address and the item is shipped directly to their home---no more standing in long lines at the Post Office to pay exorbitant USPS shipping prices. I can even purchase gift wrapping if I so chose. Often, vendors will offer to break the cost up into several monthly payments, at no extra charge. No more long lines, crowded parking lots where i am ultra vulnerable, feral thug shoppers and traipsing malls end to end, only to not find what I wanted. Have laptop, and hot chocolate, and click away, from the comfort and safety of my own home.

Buy now before the price goes up. The value of things goes up while the value of your dollar goes down. 2.9% increase means it went down around 5% in real dollars.

Two weeks have passed since authorities first began investigating the brutal murders of four University of Idaho students in Moscow, Idaho and no suspect or person of interest has been identified. Police have also not yet provided key details surrounding the murders of Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, but they are doing so intentionally, according to Aaron Snell of the Idaho State Police. During an interview on Fox News’ "Lawrence Jones Cross Country," Snell told host Lawrence Jones that investigators "don't currently have a suspect" but that keeping certain information "from view is going to be critical into trying to develop that."

The US soccer federation displayed Iran's national flag on social media without the emblem of the Islamic Republic, saying the move supports protesters in Iran ahead of the two nations' World Cup match Tuesday. Iran's government reacted by accusing America of removing the name of God from their national flag and called for FIFA to kick the USA out of the World Cup with a 10-game ban from soccer. Tasmin news agency - associated closely with the Iranian regime - says Iran's soccer federation will make the request to FIFA, soccer's governing body.  The symbol was later returned to the flag on the USA's website but

In a Saturday article headlined “At Protests, Guns Are Doing the Talking,” New York Times investigative reporter Mike McIntire accuses gun rights advocates with “a right-wing agenda” of “increasingly using open-carry laws to intimidate opponents and shut down debate” at protests, gatherings, and public meetings. There’s a legal term for what he’s describing and it’s called “brandishing”; a term that describes an illegal activity and does not appear once in his nearly 2,600-word piece. The word doesn’t appear because he knows that’s not what’s happening. He even admits that “shootings were rare” and that “armed protests accounted for less than 2 percent” of total protests. But that admission didn’t come until

Former GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan is offering two reasons why GOP voters should walk away from President Donald Trump’s 2024 presidential primary campaign. “We want to win,” the establishment champion told ABC News’ This Week on November 20. Trump “is going to continue to lose altitude” in primary polls because “he’s unelectable because [of] that suburban voter.” The second reason offered by Ryan is his own alternative 2024 White House platform. That platform breaks from Trump’s mostly-populist policies and offers voters a series of healthcare cuts, more wage-cutting migrants, new carbon taxes, and lower taxes for corporate investors. “I have presidential-sized policy ambition, but I really don’t have presidential-sized personal ambition,” said Ryan,

Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Sunday that he will 'of course' testify before House Republicans next year if asked, but ripped the GOP for running 'anti-Fauci' platforms in the recent midterm elections. House Republicans' many threats to investigate the Biden administration will get the chance to materialize next year after they narrowly won back the majority in Congress' lower chamber. A large share of those have been targeted at the White House chief medical adviser and his role in handling the COVID-19 pandemic's public health policies.

A top European official reportedly blasted President Joe Biden and his response to the Russia-Ukraine War, saying that the U.S. has “profited the most” from the war.  According to a Politico report, top European officials believe that while Europe has struggled following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, America has made money off of gas and weapons.  “The fact is, if you look at it soberly, the country that is most profiting from this war is the U.S. because they are selling more gas and at higher prices, and because they are selling more weapons,” a senior official,

Since President Joe Biden has taken office, the 2022 fiscal year saw more than 2.76 million illegal migrants cross over the southern border, however, officials say that number is higher since most encounters were never apprehended.  In total, at least five million immigrants have entered the U.S. illegally under Biden's failed border policies.  And yet, the Biden Administration insists that the crisis is under control.  Meanwhile, the National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd is accusing the Biden White House of continuing to “deflect and lie” about the ongoing problem.

Joe Biden has been on his umpteenth vacation in Nantucket since November 22. While he’s frequently attacked billionaires about paying their “fair share” in taxes, he is staying at the $20 million home of private-equity billionaire David Rubenstein. He stayed there last Thanksgiving week as well. He hasn’t been doing well with the media while he’s been there. In his first controversial vacation comment, he claimed that there was no reason for anyone to have “semi-automatic guns” — advocating for banning all modern guns. That did not go over well. Then he contradicted what White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre had said about his involvement regarding the rail strike.

Biden’s administration yesterday authorized Chevron to begin drilling in Venezuela again, easing Trump-era sanctions and giving an economic lifeline to the tyrannical Maduro government who has brought the South American country to absolute economic ruin. It’s illegal in Venezuela to publish the actual currency conversion rates. Most of the country’s economy is now transacted illegally in U.S. dollars. The sanctions preventing the development of oil reserves in the country were from 2019 when President Trump sanctioned the country for engaging in widespread voter fraud.

That would be the group of prisoners locked up in DC over the January 6th incident, a group that has allegedly been treated horribly in jail. While many have since forgotten about them, some haven’t and are still willing to draw attention to their plight, with the Columbia Bugle and Tucker Carlson doing so by highlighting the sad case of Chris Worrell.

Georgians have many reasons to be grateful this Thanksgiving, but a runoff election free from partisan lawsuits is not one of them. Amid its contentious campaign between Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock and GOP challenger Herschel Walker, Georgia Democrats called in Marc Elias — the lawyer behind the 2016 Russia collusion hoax — to force Georgia to allow an extra day of early voting on the Saturday following Thanksgiving. Elias shopped around for an activist judge likely to grant him an easy win, and he found one. The GOP eventually appealed, but the day before Thanksgiving the Georgia Supreme Court refused to block the lower court’s opinion.

As the United States rolled back the clocks one hour this month to observe the end of Daylight Saving Time, many people got a bit more sleep than usual – but some not as much as others. Growing evidence shows that lack of sleep and sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea, remain more prevalent in Black, Asian, and Hispanic or Latino communities, and these inequities can have long-term detrimental implications for physical health, even raising the risk of certain chronic diseases. Meanwhile, Daylight Saving Time itself – enacted in the US to reduce electricity usage by extending daylight hours – has long

In 2021, Disney greenlit Strange World, an animated movie about a family journeying through a mysterious land to save a resource that’s losing its energy. Bob Iger, who is returning to Disney to “save” it from Bob Chapek’s sad tenure, was still on board in 2021, so he must have greenlit it. That’s a relevant fact because the movie bombed at the box office. Coincidentally or not, the movie has an openly gay subtext as one of the main male characters crushes on another boy. Before the movie opened, the media wanted audiences to know about the gay romance, probably under the mistaken belief that audiences would care:

San Francisco hotels are demanding millions of dollars from the city to compensate them for damage incurred while housing the homeless under a municipal government program launched during the COVID-19 pandemic. Under the program, known as “Shelter-in-Place” (SIP), hotels were used to move homeless people off the streets for fear of spreading the coronavirus in tent cities. Ironically, as COVID became better understood, officials began recommending against clearing homeless encampments, because the virus spread less easily outdoors.
