Life. Well Spent.

The recent bankruptcy of Sears brought to mind my earliest adulthood shopping memory.

The Sears card was my very first credit card.  It was 1989 and I was a newly working 18-year-old.  I had only been employed since June.  It was the Christmas shopping season and I visited the store where I fell in love with a keyboard that was $150.00.

“You should apply for a credit card and then you can buy the keyboard,” my mother told me.

I didn’t really know what a credit card was but apply for it I did.  And received it I did.  And bought the keyboard I did.  Nearly thirty years later I still have the keyboard and the credit card.

Over the years Sears became my stand-by store for clothes.  If I couldn’t find nice dress clothes at Caldor’s, Ames, The Fair or any other department store at the time (and there was no way I was going to find nice clothes at any of those stores), I went to Sears.  When I needed a decent winter coat, I went to Sears.  For the past twenty years I have shopped there on Black Friday just to buy beautiful, quality dress shirts as Christmas gifts for my husband.  It’s the only place I’ve ever been able to find a decent purse.  Sears was the only place I could find the pair of fashion boots my daughter wanted for school.  I don’t know how many photos of my daughter were taken in their Portrait Studio over the years.  They are some of the best professional photos I have of her.

From what I’ve been hearing the Sears stores that are still standing plan on being around through at least the end of the year and will have their annual Black Friday sale.  Unless that changes, I will be there.  It’ll probably be our last hurrah.

Sears has been a staple in my life and I’m so sad to see it go.

We Really Don’t Care

Apparently when she “created” her “BeBest” campaign, Melania Trump only had one person in mind for what it was supposed to be for:  herself.  I say this because today she declared herself the most bullied person in the world.

She didn’t want herself to “BeBest”.  She wanted everyone else in the world to “BeBest” to her.

It doesn’t matter that she joined her shithole “husband” with his racist “birtherism” movement against President Obama.

It doesn’t matter that she wore a jacket that prominently displayed the message “I really don’t care, do u?” on the back while she jetted off to allegedly visit detainment camps in Texas which held innocent immigrant children.

Melania has proven more than once that yes, she really doesn’t care.  About anyone but herself.  I find it difficult to believe she even cares about her child.

That’s why she and SHITHOLE are meant for each other.  They’re both narcissists.  They’re both cheaters.  They’re both grifters.  Both are in it only for what they can get out of it.  When all is said and done, neither one will have anything.  And that’s what bullies deserve.

Why They Still Like Him

Nearly two years later I have finally figured out why some people (and certainly not the majority) support the SHITHOLE in the Shit House.

It’s not because he’s built a wall.  Because he hasn’t.

It’s not because he’s done away with ISIS.  Because he hasn’t.

It’s not because he’s made it so they don’t have to have health insurance and can have everyone else pay for their insurance but they get it for free because they’re too cheap to pay for it.  Because he hasn’t.

It’s not because he’s given them more money in their paychecks.  Because he hasn’t.

It’s not because he’s helped save their jobs.  Because he hasn’t.

It’s not because he’s welcomed refugees and immigrants into the country with open arms.  Because he hasn’t.

It’s not because he’s helped the opioid crisis.  Because he hasn’t.

It’s not because he’s made the country safer by suggesting and promoting gun reform laws.  Because he hasn’t.

It’s not because he’s got great morals and ethics.  Because he doesn’t.

It’s not because he’s a billionaire.  Because he isn’t.

It’s not because he’s smart.  Because he isn’t.

It’s not because he’s loyal to others.  Because he isn’t.

The only reason why any one still supports this bastard is simply because he isn’t black.

It’s quite obvious.  Think about it.  Since he’s been “president” all he’s been doing is reversing everything the black guy did. 

If there’s one thing S HAS done for this country is reveal just how racist we still are and how racist he really is. 

Which we knew already.  Even his “supporters” knew it already. And they were either racist or Russian enough to vote for him.

“Without Justice, Courage Is Weak” – Benjamin Franklin

It is true that justice is eventually always served.

Whether it be because the perpetrator goes to prison.

Whether it be because the perpetrator doesn’t get the coveted position they so desire, the fancy house or the beautiful, perfect spouse.

Whether it be because the perpetrator suffers a permanent health condition and is never the same again.

Whether it be because the perpetrator dies.

They will eventually will get it in the end.

Nothing Anonymous Here

We can speculate until the cows come home as to who wrote the anonymous op-ed piece for the New York Times.  We didn’t know who Deep Throat was either but eventually learned his identity. We’ll find out soon enough.

But I feel the real point of the article is that the writer, someone high up in the SHITHOLE “administration”, is not very happy with what’s happening before their eyes. Join the club.

What bothers me, but does not surprise me, is the contradictions and hypocrisy in the article. And the fact this person won’t do anything to save his country.

In one paragraph it states: “To be clear, ours is not the popular “resistance” of the left. We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous.”

Then the very next paragraph reads:

“But we believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic.”

If you want the SHITHOLE “administration” to “succeed”, how can you put your first duty to this country? Because SHITHOLE doesn’t believe in our country. Especially when you also say SHITHOLE “acts in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic”.  I’d also like to know what “policies” have already made America safer and more prosperous. Until you do something about the NRA and create gun reform, America will never be safe. And if you think your great big “tax reform” and tariffs are making us prosperous, you’re not as intelligent as I first thought.

Then there’s the hypocrisy.  When you state:

“Don’t get me wrong. There are bright spots that the near-ceaseless negative coverage of the administration fails to capture: effective deregulation, historic tax reform, a more robust military and more.

But these successes have come despite — not because of — the president’s leadership style, which is impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective.”

So, in other words this person is saying that although SHITHOLE reversed everything Obama did because he’s a petty jealous man, it all happened not really because he did it. Also, we’re still waiting for the effective deregulation, any kind of good tax reform, where EVERYONE benefits, and our military isn’t any more robust than it’s ever been. Plus SHITHOLE hates our military. And this anonymous author failed to mention the thousands of children taken from their parents, many of whom still have yet to be reunited.

All thanks to SHITHOLE.

The biggest and scariest piece of hypocrisy:

“Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until — one way or another — it’s over.”

You know he’s mentally unstable. You complain about him enough to write an anonymous article. Yet you don’t do anything about it. Why? So you can keep a job? For what? You don’t want a “constitutional crisis”. You’re already done. All of you are done. None of you will ever work in the political world ever again. Shit, you’re going to have way more than a “crisis” on your hands when this shit show is through.

There is nothing anonymous about this person. They know who they are. The Times knows. This person is nothing special. But the question remains what does this person want for America? Because this person can bitch all they want about a situation they put themselves into, something they accepted, something unlike the rest of America, has control over and can do something directly about but won’t. Whatever happens to this person, and something will, have no pity. They, like the rest of the SHITHOLE “administration”, deserve everything they get. Continue reading “Nothing Anonymous Here”
