Boobus Meets the Police StateFriday, December 24, 2010
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.
