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.
