Default How far will the desperate go?

Just for a pair of shoes that are on sale... can you imagine if they were hungry and smelled food?

This is just a sight hole into the sludge tank that our society has become. All over some nikes!

if the economy collapses, and there is no government support for those on welfare, as in no more money for the freeloaders, then these people will be very desperate and there will no value to your lives or your loved ones. they will hurt or kill to eat, in this should happen, and there is a good possibility that it could, people need to prepare to be able to defend what is theirs. a person who has sucked on the government system for so long and expected it and that now has nothing, is in a position that they have nothing to lose. so the desperate become a dangerous liability to thos of us who have worked for what we have. be cautious is my advise.

People with nothing to lose are the most dangerous.

I am not a Mormon but they have it right. They have the food, the weapons and community support to defend themselves. They are in the best shape of any group to survive.

If in fact the entitlements go away along with ROL the cities will become a killing fields. It will become our worse nightmare.

Link has changed... Here is the published text

TAYLOR, Mich. -

Taylor Police responded to Southland Mall early this morning when a crowd of about 300 people became unruly while waiting for the Mall to open.

At about 5:30 a.m., Southland Mall called police for assistance with a large crowd of about 300 people were lined up outside outside. Customers were waiting outside to buy the new Nike Air Force 1 shoe.

The Mall was not scheduled to open until 8 a.m.

Approximately 100 people gained entry through two doors near JC Penny and Best Buy. The crowd forced its way in by pulling the main doors open. Once inside, there was some minor interior damage to decorations and benches that were toppled over during the scuffle.

Police from Dearborn, Dearborn Heights, Brownstown Township and Southgate responded to assist Taylor. The crowd was safely dispersed from the mall with only one arrest of a 21-year-old Detroit man. Taylor police are holding him and seeking charges of inciting to riot.

There were no injuries reported and property damage was isolated to the interior of the mall.

There were also crowd control problems reported in Indianapolis, Indiana and Seattle, Washington.

I just watched the video of several cities this took place in this morning. It was on fox, as you watch one thing will become very appearent, they were all black. I'm sure there must have been other than black people taking part in the fiasco, I did'nt see them. You can draw your own conclusions. I will tell you mine.

The war on poverty, is actually the war on the black family. The program has effected three generations very negatively. If you take the father out of the home and replace him with the government you have split the nuclear family up. It is much easier to create a false relationship where a void has been created. Instead of waiting on Daddy to bring his weekly paycheck home, Mother and children wait for the monthly government check.

Move forward to the present with the pop culture role models, rappers, felonious athletes and poverty pimps like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson, who are the young black people going to model. At this point the gangsta life has infiltrated into mainstream American life. All of the youth in this country are in jeopardy if not given some balance to such negative stimulus that is todays pop culture.

I have delicately suggested to my black friends and white friends also, about a movie due to be released, 1/20/12. The title is "RED TAILS", It is the story of the Tuskegee Airmen. The were proud black men who served thier country with great distinction as fighter escorts to the bombers over Europe. Hopefully, George Lucas and hollywood will not take creative liberties with history. There truely is no need to embellish for the sake of a storyline.
