Wondering… before big box and chain stores how many more mom and pop stores were there? We’re there office supply stores in every city/town? Hardware stores? Pharmacies? Toystores? Electronic stores? Etc. And come to think of it, it’s not just the Walmart and McDonalds, but also cars and personal transportation that plays a role as […]Read more "2017-0517"
People like Donald Trump have others thinking that products from China or any other country are inherently low quality and possibly harmful. They have some people so wound up that they either fail to realize, or fail to remember, that is it your fellow Americans like Donald Trump who are not just outsourcing production to […]Read more "How is American better?"
You know it’s kind of funny to me (after being annoying) that people complain so much about entitlement. Maybe life has just taught me different than other people.

As well it seems to […]Read more "Simply because we don’t see"
In the past; before humans overpopulated the earth; before we altered this planets climate; before we topped the list of the planet’s Most Wanted; before we became earth’s worst serial killer; before we made many species of animal and plant life go extinct; before we caused masses of birds to die and fish to go […]Read more "Population Control"
