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!

HERE’S A PEEK INTO MY LIFE!

Ever since my one sister & I split!

I have slowly gotten my life back! But! I do thank her for being there for me. I do apologize! For the things, I said to still!!!!

My day begins with checking the email, news online, checking the bank rates for the highest rate available.

I had to find another bank because! Of a problem with at that time. The problem I had with it. And I did.

I found an online bank that offers “INTEREST” on checking accounts. No min. balances, no maintenance fees!

————————————————————————–

From what I went through with the ex! I have to say that! I am getting into it!

My son comes over two times a month. Have lunch, watch GSN, talk does my laundry for me.

Most of the time! I watch tv, the net, go to bed!

The hard part about it is? Trying to forget about the past and move on! I think it’s because. I spent way!!!!!!!! Too long with them!

I am building my life once again. Without them! I held out hope for one too many years! with the ex.

I know! she is so very scared “SHITLESS” to get the divorce papers drawn up. Because of what she said & did to me!

NOW! I have to concentrate! On what I want! Instead of what I don’t want.

The women around here are not too bad at all! Diversity! Being what it is!

“ENJOY! YOUR “FREEDOM”! WHILE YOU CAN!

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS! DON’T YOU THINK WE HAD ENOUGH OF THIS CRAP?

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS HISTORY OF  POLITICAL CORRECTNESS 2

Is it not the time to call it the end of an era with this  “political correctness”?

The term was first used in then communist Russia. It means:”tow the line when you speak about our leader and their administration”. Not! “walk on my eggshells the way “I” want you to!” AKA! “Do as I say not as I do!”

We have to be careful in what we think, say, do. When it comes to other people. But! These are the exact same people that if you did the very something to them? You would get:”HOW DARE YOU!” IT’S THE OTHER WAY AROUND!

In reverse! The “baby boomer” generation and back. Here in the USA! There was no such thing at all! We treated each other the way we would want to be treated. AKA! “common sense!”

If you look at newspapers of the past! You will find that in those days. We meant what we said! And! Said what we meant! Not! “water down” English as it is today! This crap about:”I don’t want to be verbally injured!” “GET OFF THE PILE!”

It is so very unfortunate! That we as a race, nation, the world. That we all! Are followers! The need to belong, accepted, fit in. Is far more important! Then just plain “getting along”.

Our basic human needs/wants. Will always be there!

I know! That’s old (school) fashioned!

IS IT REALLY?

WE ARE ALL WE HAVE!!!!!!
