    I used to do my own repairs, but I'm creakier than my car. The most expensive car I have purchased since 1993 cost $3000. I drive them till the wheels fall off. My favorite saying is "why should I buy a whole car when all I need is a transmission?

    after all that, how do you guys feel about corporations having the same rights as human citizens ala Citizens United? Is money speech and if it is, how cheaply was your representative bought?

    I worked at sears years ago and they didn't run a lean or smart operation. Times change and businesses that don't fail. Instead of looking at stores look at total retail sales. Bet they are not bottoming

    When it became easier to veg, at you puter or TV....they had their foot in the door...who truly wants to work hard, or in that case do anything...people did it back in the day cause they had to but now that isnt even the way...a human will pick a path of least resistance......so sitting on a couch feeding your face and staring at a TV or puter is the way of the land now...

    I have wished for a while now that the grid would go down, just to thin out the sheep...just so it is clear what side we all stand on..

    The people aginst guns I bet would be the first to fall, cause if you wont stand for the 2nd, nothing else will have your back...lol...

    Prospecting
    Buying on line isn't always painless. I was doing a remodel in my bathroom and wanted a Mexican sink. If you've never seen one they are very colorful with designs that can look like a kaleidoscope. They are china and fragile. So instead of buying online I downloaded the image of what I wanted, went to a store here that sells such stuff. I cold tell the owner was surprised to see me matching the design with what he had. The price was twice but it wasn't broken and the bucks stayed local.
    The other item, a Mexican mirror I couldn't find so I ordered it on line. Two months later, I'm still waiting. Nothing perfect here.
    There is often a difference, especially with face to face service and keeping the money local. Growing up about all that was bought mail order was from Sears.
    The internet is an American invention. It might have been made for the military but like the GPS and other things they found a way to the world.
