I know a guy---(I disassociated myself with him becasue of this, and the fact that he had no problem sleeping with young girls while being married "its acceptable in his 'home' country" was the excuse) who made quite a large sum of money here in the US selling counterfiet jeans and white cotton business shirts. He ordered full shipping containers of them for $3.00 a pr and $0.50cent a shirt. He was simply a middle man purchasing off some other middle man, and selling them to another middle man. Eventually the product was sold on the street and at these flea markets. From what he said, each middle man added 10 cents a pair. All transactions in cash. Big bags of it---like on TV.
I also disassociated myself with the guys I knew who had no problem buying 100 of these shirts. They ironed them, wore them once and tossed them. It was cheeper to buy a new one than dryclean the used one. Its sick.
I pay much higher taxes than I need to because of all of this.
He reaps huge "business accomodations" and tax breaks because of his minority status. He has filed bancrupty 3 times after getting large low interest loans to start his next (my words) fake business venture. Sucks the cash out and goes under.
He laughs at this Country for how blind and foolish we are.
I agree with him on this note, we are a foolish Country in many aspects. There are masses of folks more interested in seals, snails, leather seats, IPODs, you name it---even skiing--than the real issues facing this Country.
Self interests run amuck---Fluffy powder, cute seals, or another man's 50 cent shirt. We all have our lines. I like mine more verticle than horizontal.
I'll get off my high horse now, most likely having landed two feet first in his sh..t.
