This sort of stuff is starting to tick me off. I am not making a political statement here. I am making a statement about waste. I had to go shopping yesterday for curtains and whatnot so we can prettify the house and get it on the market. I hate shopping but it had to be done. I was dumbfounded to see two things:
1) Dillards up at Northgate Mall in Cincinnati is closing. (When did this happen? Is it relocating? Or is this Dillards just being crossed off the list? In any case, I bet there are people who used to get a pay-check who aren't going to anymore.)
2) The amount of absolute crap that people are still buying. JCPenney has a whole collection of stuff labeled "American Living." O.k., cool. I'm all for America, but I would think something labeled "American" would, you know, like, be MADE in the United States of America. Wrong. And from a quality standpoint, it's garbage. And expensive. $100+ for a quilt. ?? Some little Chinese kid is sewing her fingers to the bone and some wasteful American woman is shelling out one hundred bucks for a piece of crap + even more for the accessory pieces of crap. This woman was in front of me at the checkout... paying on a credit card, of course. BUT, it's her money to spend. It's her debt to incur. I'm a big advocate of freedom. Waste you money any way you want to, lady... stimulate that economy!!
But THIS is my money that's being wasted. And I don't have money to waste. [From RedState.com]
