Venezuela? Nope. Chicago: People Robbed At Gunpoint For Their Winter Coats (& Left To Freeze)

In “the best economy, ever”, we have a rash of armed robberies for coats! Imagine when the hunger pangs kick in? Oh my, just check out this video…

Maybe these armed robberies are not for “survival” purposes, but what we are seeing is no doubt what happens in a decaying, collapsing, and most importantly, a morally bankrupt society.

But not to worry, the “literal” bankruptcy of the United States is coming.

Reports are coming in that people wearing the expensive brand of winter coats, Canada Goose, are being robbed at gunpoint for their outerwear.

Does this seem like a healthy economy to anybody?

America is turning into Venezuela, and much sooner than most people think, even if it is relative.

OK, “Hey Half Dollar, what do you mean by relative?”

Good question.

Well, in Venezuela, girls, ladies and women were (are) robbed for their hair at gunpoint. It doesn’t matter what it is to a society in collapse – if it is valuable, it will become a target.

And I do mean anything valuable.

One must able hide it, and perhaps more importantly, one be able to defend it.

So in the US of A, well, yeah, we’re a couple of steps-up from robbing for hair at gunpoint, so the crooks here like to target the nice outerwear, and it serves a dual purpose too, you know, because not only are the the coats worth mad fiat for what they are, even in used condition, the coats can also be used to keep a person, well, warm.

The only real question that differentiates the United States from Venezuela is, who will come in to effect regime change on us after we’re done tearing ourselves apart?

I’ll leave that question open-ended as food for thought.

Here’s some MSM coverage about the coat robberies from CBS Chicago:

Here’s some more MSM coverage, this time from WGN News:

Let that sink in real good for a second.

The armed robbers caught on-camera are driving a freakin’ late model Mercedes.

And the hunger pangs haven’t even set-in yet.

From the coming economic collapse.

Stack accordingly…
