Election Eve 2016

I'm sure there will be a dozen posts about this election. The country is absolutely divided. 

Trump vs. Clinton

Trump has made promises of slowing immigration, building this infamous wall Mexico will pay for, deporting 11 million undocumented immigrants, banning Muslim Terrorists, defeating ISIS, creating more jobs and cutting taxes. 

I will admit he changes his mind like I change my panties. He needs to make a 'Mom To-Do List' and stick with it. I believe he truly wants to make American great again and he believes he will do right. 

Now Hillary, good Lord. This woman makes me sad for having a vagina. I really have nothing nice to say about her. She is an embarrassment. She is, at the very least, a liar. Why can't she just say, "Yea. I deleted the e-mails. Oopsy!" Shit. Keep a little credit on your side, Hil-dog. Did you know that felons are not allowed to vote? I'm not talking about the ones sitting in jail still. I'm talking about the people who served their time and are trying to live right. I can go on about that, but that's a post for another day. 

Anyway....where was I? 

I am all for a woman President, but this cow is more embarrassing than Trump's spray tan. Which brings me to what happened when I went to the store for my energy drink this evening. I visit this store often. Kind, good kids. Two of the employees were behind the counter, laughing and joking back and forth. They were talking about the election. These are two of my favorites at this store and I quickly join in with them. The little girl, she's 18, volunteered that she voted for Hillary and proceeding to tell me her reason why. 

Go ahead, take a seat and hold on. 

"I didn't vote for her Hillary because she is a woman. I voted for her because she has more experience. Plus, I don't want to see a cheeto in office" 

Yes. Your eyes do not deceive you. I'll let that sit in for a moment. 

Didn't vote for her because she thought her ideas were better such as raising minimum wage or her ideas for their age group 18-25 will be beneficial. 

No. Not even close. 

Because. She. Doesn't. Want.  A. Cheeto. In. Office. 

My mind was blown. This is why we are in trouble. The 'Millennials' are more concerned about looks than what really matters. You don't like Trump, fine, but come up with something better than he resembles a cheeto.

Louisiana Looters

Have ya'll heard about the "Louisiana Looters?" This whole ordeal has really chapped my ass. I'm not one to jump on the PA boat with my high horse and condemn these particular people, but this is ridiculous. Let me give you the quick scoop.

Last month, Xerox was doing a routine system check and the system crashed. When this system crashed, they alerted all EBT accepting retailers in 17 states. Some stores put up signs stating that shoppers wouldn't be able to use their cards due to technical difficulties. However, Wal-Mart, being huge idiots, agreed to allow shoppers to use their EBT cards thinking they would use that trusty honor system. When food stamp recipients found out about this in Springhill and Mansfield, Louisiana, they went insane. They cleared the shelves, throwing anything and everything edible in their carts.

I'm curious. At what point did the managers of Wal-Mart realize that people were being deceitful. Was it when people were acting like the sky was falling and stocking up for a Zombie Apocalypse? Or maybe when they had to call the police for crowd control? Maybe it wasn't until they announced that the system was up and people left their completely full carts all over the store and walked out.

I just don't understand this. I don't understand why people receiving benefits were taking full advantage of the system and Wal-Mart, to an extent, absolutely knew what was going on and allowed it to happen. One lady, rolled on up to a cash register with over $700 of groceries in her basket. The system came up in the middle of her transaction to find out she only had 50 cents on her card. The police tried to arrest her and Wal-Mart released the woman.

So, who do we hold accountable? Wal-Mart for not using the emergency protocol and allowing recipients to over spend by hundreds? Or is it the recipients who knowingly took advantage of the system during a major malfunction? The Governor of Louisiana has released a statement saying these people will be held accountable and will face consequences of their actions. Consequences include banning from the program for a year, two years or life. All in all, the ones that will truly suffer are the children because their parents made a horrible, thoughtless decision. There is a process to determine eligibility for the program and they obviously qualified or they wouldn't have had it to begin with. So, will baning these people really solve anything? Children will go hungry and who knows if these parents will find a job or a second job to make up for their benefit loss. I don't agree with life sentences of receiving benefits. I think this should be a "wean off" program. Welfare was created to help people in bad times. A program to help them get back on their feet, not a way of life. I hope the people who took advantage of a technical malfunction will have to pay the consequences. I just hope the children of the irresponsible parents don't end up being the victims.

What are your thoughts?

Screw you, Wal-Mart.

Wal-Mart is a soul sucking store and I'll tell you why. 

The hubby and I had a pretty good day. I got up this morning and got my oldest ready to go to my Dad's. He looked  freaking adorable in his cowboy outfit. My step-mother barrel races and they were going to watch her and oldest was going to spend the day with them. My other two are in Dallas visiting their grandmother and biological father. So, hubby, baby and I set out to accomplish some errands on this fine Saturday. We went to the 'Salvage Store' which is a small grocery store ran by a major trucking company that hubby works for as a driver. They have daily specials and super low prices plus we get a 30% discount. I love LOVE this place. I got a case of Chobani Yogurt for $6.00.  If you ever get the chance to go, DO IT. It's worth it if you have the extra discount or not. 

You usually can't find everything at the 'Salvage Store' because its a day by day basis as to what they have. We ended up at the 'Gates of Hell' aka Wal-Mart to finish up our grocery shopping. I hate this place. I'm pretty sure I would rather fall on a knife than to go to this place. But, damn you, Wal-Mart, your low prices suck my soul every time to your doors. 

We walk in, grab a basket and it begins. It was a freaking mad house. Did I miss something? Was today a holiday and I missed the memo? We start at the pharmacy for bath stuff. I was looking for a certain body wash. I couldn't find it and neither could hubby. So what do you do when you're at a store an you can't find something, you ask a clerk. That was mistake number one. 
Me: 'Excuse me, ma'am?
Her: 'Yeah?'
Me: 'I can't seem to find the body wash I'm looking for. It's Gold Bond Sensitive.' 
Her: 'It's on the body wash aisle over there.' 
Me:'Yes. I've been there and I can't seem to find it. Do y'all carry it?'
Her: 'How should I know? I work in toys.'
Me: 'Alrighty. Thanks.  You're awesome.'

That PISSED me off. Hubby told me to get another body wash or just wait and we would stop somewhere else. Screw that! I'm here now. I want to get it now if it is here. But, whatever I'll go somewhere else. 

We get through the majority of shopping trip without problem other than the overwhelming amount of people who choose to either be in pajamas at 3:00 in the afternoon or girls in shorts or shirts two sizes, too small. Hey lady, I don't want to see your back boobs or your FUPA. Cover it up. They make your size in cute clothes and I swear you will look much better and classier. 

Let me not forget about pajama girl. Hey pajama chick, put some jeans on and real shoes. I, by any means, didn't doll up for errand day. Jeans, shirt and flops with some bronzer on my face. What you wear to bed is just for that, BED. Your Tinkerbell pajamas are cute on a 5 year old. You're over 30. Get it together. Put some clothes on, tuck your boobs in and put some shoes on other than the Cookie Monster eating your feet. 

We finally get to check out and there are 27 lanes and only 4 open plus 8 self check outs. What in the actual fuck? Wal-Mart, you had at least 10 associates standing around not doing a damn thing. Some of them could've opened up a few check out lines to clear out the long lines. I would not hate this place so much if people would just get their shit together. FYI Wal-Mart, I like your prices and your selection, but when you can't get your associates to do their job, I start to lose hope. You literally suck my soul from my body the minute I walk through the door. Easy solution, I just go to another store and never come back, but my penny pinching ways get the best of me. I hate you and I really wish you (Wal-Mart) would do what you advertise. 

On a brighter note, I found some really cute clothes for the kiddos at a couple of garage sales we stopped at on our way home. The best part of my day, however, was hubby's surprise stop at Dairy Queen where I got a 'Georgia Mud Fudge' Blizzard. Delicious and I forgot about my 'fall on the knife' experience. 

Nonetheless, I enjoyed my day spent with hubby and baby. We did have fun and I love one on one time with each kiddo. 

Until we meet again, Wal-Mart, screw you, soul sucker, screw you!! 

Do you have an awful Wal-Mart experience?
