Gun Pulled After Man Jumps Texas Sears Black Friday Line

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Because only in America are people ready to kill each other for things they don't need and can't afford, after spending the day before being "grateful" for things they already have.

From NBC DFW

Black Friday got off to a rowdy start at a San Antonio mall where police say one shopper pulled a gun on another who punched him in the face while they were waiting in line at a Sears store.

 

Police Sgt. Rob Carey tells the San Antonio Express-News a man rushed into the store when it opened Thursday night to get to the front of a line, started arguing with people and tried cutting in front of them.

 

One man who got punched pulled a gun and that scattered shoppers, including the impatient line-cutter who took cover behind a refrigerator. Then he fled.

 

Carey says the man with the gun had a permit to carry the weapon and isn't being charged with a crime.

Fake illusion of materialism was always part of the Globalist/bankster/technocrates plans. They're "banking" on peoples self-deprication of themselves and you know what? They're right. The sheep have such a low self esteem about themselves that they need material things to boost their moral and feel good about themselves.

They suffer from Stockholm syndrome. It's why they enjoy and accept their own Police State, bondage and enslavement.

That statement is redundant if you haven't noticed. Materialism, while being a specific definition, is also a negative connotation or negative cultural description. As evidence, you just used materialism in that manner. It isn't fake,  it is a problem as you correctly are pointing out. But you make your point in an improper way.

Speaking of zombies...

 

I looked out my back window about 9:30 PM last night(I live across the street from the rear of a Target store) and there was a whole line of people stretching the length of the store shuffling along mindlessly. Why they sent them around back I have no idea, but they reminded me of extras in The Walking Dead.

I've never understood any of this, being a nonmaterial sort of person my whole life.  At some level, I'd like to understand it, and maybe in participate...but alas, I am left to be the freak outsider I have always been on these SHOPPING matters.  So as to the question of why they are behind Target...can't help.  I have no idea why they want to get in to begin with.

Going to Target, usually in association with acquiring school supplies, gives me the shivers.

Retailers run these stories to build hype for the shopping season, and those inhabiting the lower half of the IQ bell curve jump on that shit like crazy.

Because they are a bunch of stupid inbred fuckheads they have no sense of dignity and do outrageous things in pursuit of toys for their kids, an over priced dress, or some other crap they dont need.

But MOST Americans are not like that. At least the ones I know, not a single one was at a store opening thihs morning.

The wife spun the bearing in the blender Wenesday and was going to go today to get another one. A good excuse to join her insane sister in her annual lemming Black Friday run.

I told her the risk to her health and life at these 'events' is too great to save $5.00 and that she is worth much more than that to me.

I basked in the warm glow of the resulting Disney moment.

She really is worth everything to me.

Because I REALLY hate feeding the dogs. The stench of canned dog food makes me want to hurl.

Many of the items in Black Friday sales are models made for cheap. They may look the same, but it may have a 1/2 horsepower motor instead of the regular 3/4 horsepower. Fewer accessories. Stuff like that. If you've been waiting for the sale, check model number and specs carefully.

Black Friday reminds me of the Black Death and negroes (just kidding) !   How about Green Friday .... people buy their Christmas trees and the merchants get some greenbacks ?  I bought my Christmas tree 4 days ago when they first came out at the supermarket ! I bought the smallest tree .... $379 pesos after 10% senior discount .... the employees offered to bind it up so it would fit in my Kia Soul (which happens to be black) .... I said no .... give me one of those that has never been unwrapped .... they let me select one of the $750 pesos trees .... the guy in the back who attaches the stand .... wasn't clear on what size tree I ordered .... I jumped at the opportunity !  Merry Christmas !

You have a long time waiting, as do I. Eventually. But you must realize that as long as the US is the top military in the world and dominates, so does its status as currency reserve.

 

Strong dollar until then as every nation competes to deal with debt deleveraging, which means everyone needs dollars to make debt payments. Simple logic.

Why would anyone make an investment in anything other than pot growing in Colorado???

The investment is minimal, the rate of return is better than anything on the planet!

Do you realized you just answered your own question. Why would I invest in it when I can grow it myself? (And I have decades ago).

Personally, this is the reason I have felt government doesn't want to legalize pot, because it is so easy to grow with little investment. In other words, it is hard for them to tax.

I see a need, here.  Texas is not considered a Old South Southern State.  At least not by the natives.  We think of Atlanta when you say Old South.

National Geographic may want to argue about it, but I live here, and Texas is Texas.  The culture is different from the Old South -- the Latin contribution is vibrant here. 

So we're more likely to stuff the turkey with jalapenos than grits. 

This was a reply to a fellow who inquired about grits.  Unfortunately, my coffee maker is broken this morning, so I'm too feckin' dumb to work a website.

My perspective so far, leaving out the many above useless american idol posts, is that stores in my area are almost back to normal, as if Christmas was over. I went to several locations, the parking lots and traffic was not like previous times. I stopped in Walmart to pick up necessities, The grocery section seemed to be the only area really damaged (produce). It was 8 am Friday. The best bargains were gone of course, but so were the majority of shoppers. There were still a few boxes of things that were in the walking aisles, I assume (maybe incorrectly) as part of the black Friday bargain busters. But I would note, those items weren't of the hyped up advertised specials. For example, a Stanley tool chest, normal price $150 or so for $99. Top electronic items were gone but a few still remained. I had my eye on a laptop for $179, 2 gig memory, 320 HD as a throwaway item for myself - that was gone. But hey, I valued my time knowing I could get a similar item for about $100 more throughout the year. I guess I value hours of my time more then that $100.

 

Looking at other lots at other Big Box stores, again parking lots looking fairly normal, like it was simply a weekend when sales are generally higher.

 

Over the years, as sales have been reported, I wonder if those figures have been adjusted for inflation. In other words, let's say Walmart reports a 2 percent increase in sales revenue. But has the increase in the price (decline in the dollar relative to other things) been accounted for? If one were to take the sales revenue of previous years and divide it by something like gold, and compare it to the current sales revenue compared to the current price of gold, I wonder if those sales figures would actually be up.
