I like it the way it is as well. Now admittedly I am too young to have been around for the NR America, however I do remember Woolworth's and their little diner that served fountain drinks,burgers,hot dogs, and my favorite grilled cheese. I wish Wal-Mart’s would dump McD’s and open up a little greasy spoon like the old department stores used to have. I admit it’s for nostalgia but I think they would probably do a clean up!

There are other businesses that are picking up the slack. My current favorite is called Chee’burger, and they serve cheeseburgers (of course), grilled cheese, fountain drinks (shakes, egg creams, & root beer floats among them), and other greasy stuff.
The chain is expanding, and maybe if they open one next to every Wal-Mart, we’d be really in clover. :-)

I wasn’t knocking Wal Mart. Just was afflicted with nostalgia for the past. There were awful things back then, I grew up in the deep south, but the bedrock was an absolute security with the greatest fear being that of disappointing one’s people. Doors were not locked {unless someone had something to hide}, cars were left out with no locks, laundary was clean and on the line drying, sheets smelled good and were cotton, fans droned, we read books all summer, the man at the grocery called us by our names, when we needed gas and had no money on us, the man at the station said “I’ll get it from your Dad later”.

You just can’t equate convenience with that, or money, or anything. It was secure. Maybe today there is the same security and it is just attached to different things.

WalMart makes me anxious, just going in gives me the hebbie jeebies. But I go in, their veggies are great.

Lifetime care doesn’t mean free care. Are you really upset to pay those copays?

Damned if I know Brother. Seems I got that pledge also. Along with dental care, which of course went first. Then there was the PX, Commissary, etc. No post within 140 miles of me. They closed Fort McClellan here in Alabama, so I cannot use that any longer. Nope they make us pay that fee each year, the co-pays, and now want to triple the fee each year, so that comes next. Of course, those were PROMISES made by recruiters who had no right to pledge those to us. AND, of course, the military and Congress critters KNEW the recruiters were making those “promises” yet did NOTING to stop them. They ALLOWED the recruiters to continue to MISLEAD us for all those years. Then, when they wanted to screw us royal, it was easy to say recruiters had not right to make those promises. But, you are right, we were promised all that for our service. They used up the best years of my life, beat my body to a pulp, cut my retired pay by the amount of disability they give me for the injuries, so you actually wind up paying your own disability out of your retired check. They continue to cut, cut, cut, cut, and what can we do about it, NOTHING. What am I going to do now, get out of the Army? Way too late, years too late. If I had known all those years ago, that we were going to be screwed into the ground now, and all they told me I had for my service would end up like this, maybe I would have made different life decisions. Who the hell knows? The Congress, administration, Pentagon whores, none of them really care about the retired troops at all. Just one soldier’s opinion of Congress.
