Only good thing about the Air Jordans are the resale value. You buy em for 200, can sell them for over 500 because of exclusivity, only 100 pairs across the country were released.

That girl with the gold teeth and chips is a dream for racists who love to play on stereotypes though.

But then I guess Im too old and who cares if I approve... Lol



(wondering if this generalization is because most of the people in the video appeared to be minorities??)
Umm Well yea, but the gold tooth fat chick CRUNCHING on chips while talking is the best example.

Sadly, just let yourself imagine....what in the heck is gonna happen once our dollar crashes, we have several days of Bank closures and ATMs don't do a thing for us since they dispense what then will be toilet paper! OMGosh....

Food riots, and I shudder to think what-all, and why? A couple of generations have been brainwashed in gov. schools to expect everything and work for nothing, or as little as they can to have well, just about everything.

Thats a really good question. 200 dollars is an upscale price, but running for the product is not upscale......very strange.

For those who haven't heeded warnings to be prepared it is going to be a real shock to their sense of "reality". It could get very ugly. IMO, this is why Congress keeps kicking the can down the road as long as they can with the extension of payroll tax holiday and UE benefits. They know the nanny state has failed when it comes to people being self sufficient.

*** They kick the can down the road to give themselves (the government and big banks) time to prepare, not to give the people the time and warning to prepare.
