Priorities!

Wonder if they’d ever put in that kind of effort to actually look for a job?

Oh but I thought they had controlled guns.

Obviously they left guns in the hands of the out of control, undisciplined, unprincipled youth. Deliberately.

You might be a gang banger if:

1. You’re waiting in line for the release of an expensive new sneaker.

2. You’re hunting for rival gang bangers waiting in line for the release of an expensive new sneaker.

Let me guess. The perps and victims were white, Sarah Palin worshipping, Mitt Romney voting, Glenn Beck listening, Tea Party Dittoheads.

They were probably elated they got to move up to notches in the line.

People whose main interest is getting the latest sneakers should not be allowed to vote, and should get no money from the government.

People of an age to camp out for sneakers are likely unable to understand my willing to kill and/or die for the Constitution. It’s a very sad state of affairs.

I am sure they were NRA members, the guns were legal, and they all had jobs as productive members of society (do I really need a /sarc tag?

I go camping out for a pair of nice Danner boots, but the Good Boot Fairy never brings them.

What semi-literate goon writes these headlines?

From the shoe store's "statement": We have strong values and are committed to working with our community to create an environment where everyone can achieve their dreams and prosper

What a load of politically correct, self-important CRAP. You run a SHOE store, for God's sake. Presumably your shoe store is in business to sell shoes and make a profit. Please STOP with the elevated sense of self-importance.

The new Michael Jordan shoes can be paid for with an EBT card, right?

Who knew those EBT cards allowed $185 shoes. EBT or something else, somehow the taxpayer is footing this bill.

Those idiots that willingly camp in line for some shoes will have no problem transitioning to the new American Soviet Union. “No comrade, this line is for soap. That line over there is for toilet paper. I am told that supplies should be arriving in a few weeks.”

Decades ago my Mother asked me a question that really struck to the core of this. She asked me why people would spend a lot of money to buy clothes that gave someone free advertising. That is when I stopped worrying about keeping up with trends and just bought what I liked.

I thought online sales were hurting the brick and mortar stores.

Here they had customers lined up to make purchases.

We need to implement some shoe control. In the modern urban environment, how many deaths are as a result of tennis shoes? These tennis shoes are an assault weapon and should be banned...

Naturally. The eevil man teleported himself there with a fully automatic AR-15, backed up with a fully automatic AK-47 just so he could butcher the Mahdi’s innocent chilluns.

He earned it with his outstanding performances and did not participate in setting a thug example for youth. It is not his fault that the culture has deteriorated to such an extent.
