That is because retail marks up on average 100% on a cost basis. A retail basis would be you selling a widget for ten dollars and 5 dollars was the cost and 5 was the mark up so the RETAIL mark up is 5/10 or 50%.

Do those 20% off sales seem even more absurd now?

I am not even going into the slave labor mark ups out of China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Etc.

As far as I can see, there are Russian media reporting on it, including Vesti 24 and Lenta All have cases on them UK riots. (Mostly supporting the police, since the man shot was allegedly a gang member) So maybe it's just Western media "covering it up" (I put the " 's there because I have not looked into a possible cover up, as UK riots aren't what interest me most in the newspicture today.) At any rate, youth has always rebelled throughout the ages, and there has always been those who used it for their own gains. And usually that ends up with them benefiting and the rebels in tragedy. That is my humble opition on this whole case, it'll settle down soon for sure.

The looting is the whole reason d etre for the effin riot.
Whats the matter with you people?
these people have to live on peanuts while they wallow in a town full of elitist consumer goods.
The obvious contrast get markes from time to time..the people wake up realise they are never going to get any better off and they just freak out.
Of course the freak out then centers around all the goods that they are shopwn every day, but are told they need the mans money to by.....only way to get money is o work or steal.
Theres no work so..........screw the PTB take whaat you want

Caps more? Worldwide devastation?


Most people in this great big world could give a flying rip what happens here, or in London. They are below poverty level already.. nothing that happens here will affect them. Why would riots by greedy opportunistic criminals affect the stock market? Even the S&P downgrade will have little effect on the market. They are already well aware of what's going on in the economy. Having S&P say "told you so!" won't mean much. I would guess a couple days of lower #'s.. but it will recover. It certainly won't plummet like some seem to think.

People who live in an area always assume their events will shake the world. Newsflash.. events like this have been happening for thousands of years. This is nothing special. And to most, it means nothing. But of course, we know how some folks like to get overly dramatic about any small event.

I've previously posted this another thread because I cannot create my own. "I know my response maybe a little off topic but I couldn't create a post to address this alarming sight. At 12:04 am eastern time new york, I was observing the moon. The moon is irregularly low, and moving at a very fast pace. By fast I mean from my perspective of viewing through a window it traversed the sky in less than ten minutes. This is alarming in itself but the moon actually changed from its normal color to a dark orange tint! I watch the moon once in a while and I've never seen anything like this. Sought of like a eery foreboding of things to come, because the moon looked dark and orange with 1 fourth covered in darkness. I don't think the moon is suppose to be this low at the horizon or is suppose to move out of sight in less than ten minutes. I have been visiting this sight for almost five years, signed up a couple of years later, and posted probably only once but this sight is too alarming. Something serious is happening in space involving the earth, the moon, and the sun. Can someone please observe the moons behavior because it is extremely strange. The evidence is right in front of you in the night sky if you don't believe me. Everyone just take a moment of your time to observe the moon and see if this is normal. " Something much bigger is going besides political and economic upheaval. Wither humans like to admit it or not, we are connected to all of existence, even the stars themselves on a fundamental level. People are paying attention to events on a small scale, when they should at least take into account the operation of the grand scale. This event and others like it are byproducts of an event than encapsulates entire existence. All conventional knowledge is no longer applicable to the world of today and tomorrow.

Asian markets are open now and correcting from the US "A" downgrade by S & P...

The riots in London must be honored...like it or not. They mean something. In LA we did not figure that out for a while.

Homage to blackrain17.

Blessings, prayers, peace, love and light to London and her citizens. Warnings about making light of this, making it local and not global or making it local and not global. Israel went nuts this weekend, Wisconsin is fighting those cheating people out of their voting right rights, euro zone markets are not open yet...and it is rough.

And a warning for all about the sheeple, the profane, the slaves and all those labels...mystery schools are fleeing and rebelling against their sacred society overlords to help eradicate those labels and strengthen those who are weakest in fighting against the horror.

The meek shall inherit the Earth...no question.

I just seen this on my local Station in the US. Wow. a two story building is on fire. they think people are still trapped inside of the burning building. The fire fighters cant get into the building because the fire is too big and to hot. looks like the entire block is in flames as well. then the news went on to say more fires were starting up. this was just 20 minutes ago. The news also showed an officer down and being beaten up, other officers came to help and carried him off. he did not look good from the footage I just seen.

It was stated that this event started from a police shooting?

It's out of control in London.

OK found some footage from another local station but does not show what the other station aired. This foot show a double deck bus on fire ans some buildings

Dramatic anti-police riot casts pall over London

I was just going to post a the video from the local news station. They took down the link to the footage ! It's gone.

So listening to the BBC overnight in true Orwellian fashion as the Black and Asian anchors make brief mentions of 'youths' rioting - whilst showing clips of only the few white people they have been able to capture on film - interspersed with clips of 'community' leaders (all black strangely enough) bleating on with the usual 'blame the police' we are victims crap!


I was there in the original Brixton riots of the 1980's - which the BBC recently revisited:


The Reunion's line-up to discuss Brixton offered five people – Brian Paddick, then a police sergeant, later a controversial Deputy Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police; Darcus Howe, the black "thinker"; "Red" Ted Knight, who led Lambeth Council at the time; Alex Wheatle, now a novelist and then a young rioter; and Peter Bleksley, then a junior policeman caught up in the riots.

Their selection was a parody of BBC bias. We were not reminded that Knight declared, in the aftermath of the riots: "We want to break the Metropolitan Police." He was probably the hardest-Left of all the Labour leaders in London. Sue MacGregor said admiringly that he had been banned from public office for five years because he had refused to accept Tory cuts. That is a propaganda way of putting it. A more accurate one would be to say that he was banned because his council refused to perform its legal duty to set a budget, thereby making itself unable to function

...................Who was missing? There were no women witnesses. A woman might have given an interesting account of the lawless neighbourhood where sexist young West Indian men, often dealing drugs, ruled the streets through intimidation. There were no shopkeepers – the people with whom Mrs Thatcher, to much mockery, sympathised. One of them could have explained how they were looted, burnt out, and in some cases, assaulted. There were no policemen defending the force's actions (though Paddick inserted the odd, bleating qualification to the general tide of denunciation). And there were no ordinary white (or indeed, black) residents of Brixton present to describe the fear, crime and disorder that had come to the once-peaceful community because of poorly planned mass immigration.

It was more like a police getting shot upon inspecting a car and opening return fire. Which killed the person who attacked the police first. And the poorer and more dark skinned community members rose up to "support" one of their fallen "comrades" And instead of well shooting some police or something I think they started to torch buildings, loot shops and try to enter a bank. In other words spreading the hate and doing general mayhem.

I figured there was more to this. the one liners from the media are always one sided and hard to believe.

thanks for the update.

EDIT: People were throwing petrol bombs from bridges onto passing cars on the A10 earlier....the news is hiding this from the world.

How does this action benfit anyone?
All it does is signify that the 'unruly' masses are nothing but idiots hellbent on their own agenda of causing death and destruction to the innocent. Maybe they should be redirecting it to those that have caused the problem in he first place but no they only go after those unable to defend themselves like the cowards they are.
There are no words strong enough for this shameful act, in fact it almost rivals those actions that have lead to this one.

You are very welcome. Not this POV I acquired while reading and watching the Russian news, so it may be totally wrong. It seems they focus greatly at that he had four, or five kids (A very average British family man in other words
) And that he opened fire first, perhaps he had some illegal goods in the car? I can only speculate. I am very sure the British mass media would like not to focus at all on the fact he is not fair-skinned. Oh how could they?! It would be deemed intolerant to our new immigrant "brothers".
