http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/24/justice/lebron-sneaker-store-shooting/index.html?hpt=hp_t2 In Atlanta, a man with a gun was attempting to rob a bunch of people who were waiting in a long line to buy the new Lebron sneakers($180/pair) when a guy in the line pulled out his own gun and shot the would be robber. My opinion, 1. Chances are pretty high that some(perhaps many) of those waiting in line to buy $180/pair Lebron sneakers probably-- ----have a closet full of pairs of similar 'absolutely essential for their survival'(sarcasm) $180/pair sneakers. ----that many probably complain about living in financial poverty. Yet find it more important to buy such shoes instead of food, books, health insurance, etc ----probably dump a lot of money in other such essentials for life as bling, I-Pods, X-Box's, cable TV(with every channel) while not saving money for their kids education, rent, etc -----a good portion of their money probably goes for drugs, alcohol, guns. I am sure a lot of cons on this board will cite the above as an example of liberal inner city behavior. I cite it as irresponsible behavior, etc. A good many of such people no doubt vote Democrat. However, similar behavior in regards to putting non essentials ahead of food, education, etc can also be found among rural redneck populations(who likely put guns, alcohol, their dog, their pickup with all the trimmings, a super equipped recreational boat, etc ahead of saving for education for their children, food on the table, alimony, etc. Likely a lot of them bitch about being in poverty and bitch about Obama. Some have food stamps, etc...but not likely as high a percent as inner city lowlifes/thugs. they are opposite sides of the political spectrum but do seem to share behavior that is selfish to the detriment of their family and community.
