Boobus Meets the Police State

Here is some more madness on the part of the shopping intoxicated masses. In Texas, people were storming the malls and crushing their way through the doors to buy the new Nike Air Jordan athletic shoe at the bargain price of $175. Watch this video to see the crowds, and especially, the interviews with the consumers of overpriced gym shoes.

In Mesquite, Texas, a riot occurred at Towne East Mall, where people had been standing in line since the previous day. (See the video at the bottom of the story.) Police had to use pepper spray to calm the crowd, but don’t blame the cops for this one. The mob was forcing its way into a store that was not yet open for business. Here’s a snippet from the story to help one ascertain the primary concern of Boobus ConsumerAmericanus:

“I still haven’t gotten my Jordans,” Laurie Martinez said. “I’ll never do this again. It was my first time. I’ve never done it before but I’ll never do it again.”

I consider this sort of thing to be a mini-highlight reel pulled forward from the future. If Gerald Celente, Peter Schiff, Jim Rogers, and others are correct …… Thanks to Charles Everett for the link.

    We might even put the name of Max Brooks up there with Celente, Schiff, and Rogers. His book “World War Z” is science fiction, but zombie hordes are a fitting symbol for mass looting and mayhem. What are zombies but mindless consumers attacking, overwhelming, and devouring the few producers in their midst?

    The mob was forcing its way into a store that was not yet open for business.

    Fantasy scenario, one which should have acted on in this case:

    1. “Allow” the hordes to gather outside the doors at zero-dark-thirty, or however early they choose.

    2. At, say, 6:00AM (or a certain number of hours before opening time), open the doors automatically and let the throngs of doorstops-with-pulses flood the place.

    3. Once the majority of the crowd is inside, automatically shut and lock all doors. (If mall doors are not automated, back heavy vehicles or machinery against each exit).

    4. Flood the mall with sarin, mustard, tabun, or other similar agent.

    Whoever said chemical warfare can’t be conducted for beneficial purposes? Think of it as “gene pool chlorination.”

    Speaking of police state and the TSA and airport security, check out the latest revelation of just how good, or not, that all this security is in the long run. Man Accidentally Carries Loaded Gun Onto Plane; TSA Failure Rate May Approach 70%—-check it out here…..

    “A person briefed on the latest tests tells ABC News the failure rate approaches 70 percent at some major airports. Two weeks ago, TSA’s new director said every test gun, bomb part or knife got past screeners at some airports.” [ABC News]
    Now in addition to ‘how is all that hope and changy feeling?”, now we can add, how is all the new security feeling? Trivial Security A holes.

    I never thought of a mall mob as being “civil unrest” but after seeing this fiasco, it certainly would qualify.

    Shannon, it’s filed under that category because it is one of many things taking place that are an indicator of what’s up ahead. If people fight/hurt one another over DVDs, what will they do when…….?
