Here’s some reason for cheer.

This phenomenon is not entirely new. I remember a riot over Cabbage Patch dolls at a K-Mart in New Jersey about thirty years ago.

I remember those dolls and all the fuss over them. I don’t remember punches thrown over them or gun and knives being pulled over them. If you do then do tell. Was it that bad? I remember parents lining up for miles to buy them but it was just that—a line out all the way through the store. At least in my area. We could not believe it! First of all the dolls were ugly so why pay that much for something that is just nasty? Never figured it out. I don’t remember people rushing the stores, knocking down doors, people and fighting over those ugly dolls!!

This is what American Values are today, and what we can expect with the indoctrinated yewts and young "adults", who have been instructed that they "Have Rights" and everyone should get everything they need from OTHERS, as necessary.

Fluking un-married mothers, "if it feels good do it", "they can afford to pay more", "Fair Share", etc. are evidence of the mentality that votes for "The Messiah", and leaves the traditional values Americans trampled beneath them.

Our children and grand-children will never know the America that once was......

Anyone else remember the Tickle-me Elmo dolls?

Or more recently, the mass lootings by Holder’s People over the sneakers?

Chode’s right: imagine the riots over food...

Commie indoctrination in the schools and colleges has sure done it’s job.

Jeeze! I’m happy I grew up when I did and that I have no children—sad thing to say. Overall, the yutes scare the crap outta me now, because they truly don’t know what America WAS.

They are Commie-Oides.

I remember the rush for the tickle me elmer dolls was a little more harsh. By that I mean parents were paying up to $500. and up for the thing. Scalpers were buying those and reselling them. They had learned from the cabbage patch dolls.

Obama’s America.

We are Rome, this is part of the Bread and Circus just like Obamacare is. The problem is the wants will never stop wanting. They are trying to fill holes they don't even know they have with stuff that won't fill it....

Increase the Dole, Increase the Dole....

Every time I read a story like this I buy some more magazines, or ammo, or freeze dried food.

Imagine the animal show when the economic trap door is triggered. The degradation of society has been in overdrive since the 60s and we’re on the verge of seeing what hordes of people with no moral moorings will do when the shtf.

Did anybody notice the middle age white woman in the second half of the video when she was trying to back out of the crowd and she had several boxes clutched to her torso and one black woman tried to grab her boxes from her grip but unsuccessful in her attempt. Then as the white woman continued to try and make her exit from the crowd a Spanish/Mexican man with a Gray and black baseball hat tried to grab the boxes from her and his hand was right where her mouth was and she bit down on his hand and would not hardly let go! Wow she is lucky he didn't take a swing at her but he had it coming to him. Wow! Crazy! These people are willing to kill and die for a phone while our brave men and women are dieing overseas, for these idiots to behave this way.

Sad.....

“I don’t remember people rushing the stores, knocking down doors, people and fighting over those ugly dolls!!”

If I recall correctly the New Jersey state police had to be called, so it had to have been more than local law enforcement could handle.

But I will concede that, at the time, people were shocked and appalled because this seemed to be so bizarre. Now it seems to happen in many places every year. Perhaps this is when the dam began to burst.

There's something missing here...
Does anyone have any idea what was "special" about these phones?
They couldn't be the free Obama phones.

So what gives?

I am waiting for a report from a FReeper who was there, survived and emerged with one-a-dem free Obamaphones.

When I wrote a Euro friend a couple of days ago about such scenes (look how I had perdicted the future!) he replied that he had witnessed similar scenes in of all places Switzerland.

Probably ALL of them. TWICE. That’s how Obama got reelected. Then again, maybe I’m just a conspiracy nut or don’t grasp statistics/major sarcasm off;)
