Who? Remembers Sears?

I mean! the original sears?

When I was a kid. I remember going to Sears in Cleveland, Ohio USA. Both Eastside & Westside locations in the inner city. YES! In the inner city! Before they moved to the suburbs.

It was a time when? Most of the products/items were (as I understand it to be!) overruns of National manufacturers and Sears bought them and put their name (on some of them) on it.

Sears was back then. What Walmart is today. A one stop, one shop store. Some exceptions. No drug/pharmacy department, no gas station/auto repair shop (as I recall).

Then somewhere between the 70’s & the 80’s! Sears went by way of: “if you can’t beat ’em!”  “join ’em!”.  In other words! Sears “sold out!”.

And now we are seeing an agonizing demise of an American institution. Changes in consumer tastes, convenience, styles, so on.

Not to mention! “GREED!”

K-mart is no better!

IT AMAZES ME TO NO END THAT!

Here we are. In 2017! We have a President that most if not all America do not like/want. Entertainment personalities, expressing their dislike for some people. An NBA star’s home is vandalized with racial slurs. Bombing in parts of the world. All because (for all we know!) the world is not conforming and complying with Islam.

I can remember a time when? This! Was unheard of! Aside from the wars around the world both large and small.

What are we see now? Depending on one’s own definition(s)? A violation of freedom/free speech.

An upchuck! Of the days of racism all over again!

Our leaders and heroes of days gone by. Do not mean excrement in the here and now and in the future. If they saw? the way life and times are today? They would feel? Like? It was a waste of time and effort! They might be thinking? “Why? Did we even bother?”

In any! Race! We still fight among ourselves! And always will!

We as a nation and a world will always be in? “CHOKE MODE”

What do ourselves? We try (under the disguise of?) using “Political Correctness” to get other to conform and comply with what we want! But! There is a catch and a drawback on this! These same people! Who try to get us to conform and comply with what they want us to be/say! If we did it to them? The general response would be: How dare you!” when it’s: “Not! How dare you!” “But! How dare you?”

Simple solution! Do one’s combination of “Homework” and “Research” and learn what the term “Really” means! Not just because everyone does it! Why can I?

When you do that!

Are you being your own person? If so? Why are you do the same things? What is everyone else doing?

There is a saying. “If? everyone douses themselves with gasoline” “you would do the same as well?”

Do not say “NO” Because this is exactly what you yourself are doing!

WHAT DOES IT TAKE? TO GET OUT OF AN ABUSIVE NARSSISTIC RELATIONSHIP?

 

I spent over 40 years in one! The ex! Nearly had me thinking, believing. I could not survive/live without her. Somehow I knew I could. The one too many things! About abusive narcissists are! They sat one thing but mean the other. They abusively “LIE” to a point it’s like an addiction with then. They lie so perfection to a fault that! Other fellow narcissists do not that the people they meet, talk to are “carbon copies” of them as well. They will believe in what they tell them and think nothing of it!

I had a so-called friend (if? He can be called that!) is a narcissist as well. I told both of them. If they ever got together and hit it off! In time! They would go at each other’s throats! And try killing one another! That is how much both of them have in one another. Both of them laughed at it. Normal!

No matter how much narcissism they have. You cannot tell them they are. Because they think they do not have any of it. They may know the word. But! They do not know the ingredients of it.

As unfortunate things do happen. All those years! She antagonized, harassed, pressured me. To do something. At the same time! She knew that I would not lay a hand on her. Then! Came the time! I could not take it at all!!!!!!

She ran her mouth off one too many times. She got What she came looking and wanted! I had the absolute. No choice! I slapped her! It could have been much worse! Considering the abuse I encountered and taken from her. Even I know that.

That was the one! She found me a place to live. Oddly enough!

To this day! I still wonder why? Did she even bother to reconnect with me and get married? No love at all. She pretended to be in love with me. There was nothing! That can/could be called love at all.

All I could think is this. When she and I got back together. I had a job, money, car, investments.

Her! A box that she called her “hope chest. AKA? “Pisspot poor!” And she did not like it one bit!

It’s very hard for a woman who is in one. To get out of it. For me? She made it seem like it was. The conversion was hard! But! I made it!

That one question will always remain! Why? Do they do it?

WHAT IS GOVERNMENT DOING WRONG/RIGHT?

 

Is it hard to say? What government doing right! Little is being done right (With our president proves it!).

Are they working for the good of whom they serve? Or! They themselves? Because it looks well on both! The resume’ and the family tree?

The campaign promises! Are as wide as the east is from the west! And north is from the south!

But they hope! No one will remind them of it! Say anything! If it gets you elected! Has always been that way it seems like! Since the beginning of time. For anyone who wants to get into politics. Should there be a mental evaluation? It seems to be in order (TY! Mr. President for the idea!). At any level!

Because of our current President! Since there is an age where one can run for President. There should be a “cut-off” in the age where one cannot make a run for it as well. This could be true at each level of Governments.

It’s sad! It only takes one! To ruin it for all!

REMEMBER WHEN GOING TO THE STORE WAS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE?

 

With all these retailers! Closing up shop!

I can remember when my mom wanted me to go to the store which was down the street from us where my parent and I lived. so was the drug store, hardware store, so on.

If we wanted a big ticket item? We had my sisters drive my mom and me to the catalog showroom stores. Or take a bus and go downtown and those big department stores.

Now with some stores that were time tested. Are not slowly. going away. But! Not with the board of directors! Getting their share of “Take the money and run!” job!

For those of you who may not know? What is a “Catalog showroom” store? Depending on the store! You would come in, either the store had items on display. Or You would walk up to a table, go through the catalog they had. Write down your order, present the order to the clerk. She would go in the back, fill your order, bring it to the front, pay for your order, and leave.

We had “our”” discount stores”. And “every day” discount stores. Not much difference in the two. But! HEY! saving money! Is saving money!

The 5 cent & $10..00 stores! There’s a list of them! Some in different parts of the USA! Some National.

Some of them were as well! Within walking distance. But those were small 5 & the 10’s!

It just seems like! Everything! Keeps changing! But not for the better!

IF PRESIDENT TRUMP ASKED YOU TO BE IN HIS ADMINISTRATION? WOULD YOU ACCEPT/DECLINE?

 

I For one! Would not!

Because he disgraces the office and the presidency. By not knowing which end is up?  Is rewarding his heavy contributors, with positions in his administration. All! Have if nothing else? No experience in Government at all!

For someone who has “0” Government, experience. And more than likely. Associate’s, real estate and running, a Government as one of the same.

Ever since Trump got elected. It seems the media has been on his ass in more ways than one! Rightfully, so!

At Present! Four bankruptcies, seven attempts at promoting the “Trump” name. All seven failed.

There is a law what age a person can run for President. There should be too! A law where one cannot run as well. Who do we have to blame for this?  Pres. Trump. When you do one thing! And one thing only for such a very long time! Then go into something else? Well as you can see!

Should there be a prerequisite, for running, for President as well?
