Levi Johnston, Bristol Palin, Retail sales

Rate: 2 Flag
Levi Johnston (AP)
Levi Johnston, I wish you luck with Bristol Palin, but knowing your future mother-in-law, you may just be walking into the little-known eighth circle of the Inferno. 
Another bad news. Retail sales fell again in the month of June. Welcome to the new economy where people are seriously thinking twice before shelling out their credit cards to buy things they don't need AND they need at home.
Do I really need that pair of khakis? Do I really need that ointment? 
Probably not.
