Shopping On Thanksgiving, Violence In Movies And The Death, Of A Dream?

Here today are Bev Johnson from WDIA A-M 1070, Angela Jackson from V-101 Radio and our own Todd Demers.

You may have seen this icon, online.

It says “Because I believe in family, I pledge not to shop on Thanksgiving”.

Thousands have posted it on Facebook.

The argument is that people should be home with their families on the holiday, not working at stores offering early Black Friday Deals.

We told you earlier, the President was in Hollywood yesterday, where he told moviemakers not to glorify gun violence.

He specifically mentioned the Sandy Hook Shooting, and warned studios of the influence they have.

Is this a concern, or should we not be able to separate entertainment from reality for ourselves?

And finally this morning, according to a new CBS Poll, 72% of people now believe the American dream is beyond our reach.

The study shows, the dream has also shifted from freedom and equality, to money.

So, is the dream, dead?
