Home Depot hide the weenie pracice

2 posts in this topic

Over time the Home Depot "discount" was first for veterans then only service connected now it is by item next it will only be Tuesday and a full moon.

a recent wast of time and an hour of shopping and numerous items AND NOT ONE HAD A DISCOUNT i GOT STUFF FROM TOOLS PAINT HARDWARE WALL COVERINGS ELECTRICAL  AND LIGHTING THE ONLY AREA i DID NOT GET SOMETHING FROM WAS LAWN & GARDEN. I WAS GOING TO BUT TIME WAS SHORT.

All I can say is whatever cost to return the items back to their shelves out paced any "DISCOUNT" on the products had I purchased them.

One other thought why does the V.A. in Houston have a Starbucks coffee shop ? as I recall they are not much for the military nor veterans and I may be mistaken but didn't Starbucks Want to Give 10,000 Refugees a Job Starbucks says it will hire 10,000 refugees over the next five years. |  DON"T VETERANS NEED WORK ?

I cannot tell yet what Trump is doing will help the V.A. system or not I did notice that now you either can take the V.A. benefits or Social security but not both well neither alone is going to make you much above the poverty line and besides it ain't like you can save on that chump change so it would be spent in the community but big brother does not mind paying a Syrian refugee double what a nomal social security recipient get nor does it bother them to pay illegal aliens who never dropped a dime in the system for all their chillen" give them health care food stamps with cash option as well as all other benefits like help with rent and utilities they even get trans lators and help filling out forms.

yea there is a us versus them mentality and it breeds distrust of our government it's agencies and hard feelings BUT our leaders vote themselves a raise and have a separate expense account they do not let us know about as well as travel and lodging on top and it always bothers me that they go in without a pot to piss in and come out well heeled landed gentry and they never let you forget their title senator or congressman mayor dog catcher so and so even though they are not NOW ! They have plenty of cash for handing out to all them 3rd world countries giving away the panama canal the Internet you know SH*T WE PAYED FOR.

Canada is having the same BS , not just America.

Veterens in Canada are treated like 3 class citizens, while the Liberal government rolls out the red carpet for Muslim  refugees.

This is happening world wide, so it seems.

    • my father was a bastard i never got to learn anything from him. a few men tried to teach me stuff later on but eventually i learned everything myself through the school of hard knocks. and i still don't know stuff that i should by now. thats why i admired men that take their role as father seriuosly.  
    • Good time to teach them tracking, awareness method morals and manners of the wildlife around them and fishing and as they can cleaning fish, some children can be sensitive so this is age and maturity predicated. I can't recall exactly when I was introduced to processing wild game but as far back as I can remember I watched my father clean coon, fish, rabbits, squirrels, dove, quail, pheasant,  turkey hogs and deer and some others, large animals were already field dressed when I got to see them the hunting I was allowed to go on was small game and I only got to shoot now and again until I was about 10 then I had my own pellet gun I could go terrorize the woods near the house.The more important thing I remember was the fantastic meals my mother cooked with most of it she had her limits tree rat coon were not on her edibles list she did like rabbit and the rest, but dad had to butcher them into manageable pieces for her to wrestle in the kitchen. we had a band saw and meat grinder and a butcher paper and tape dispenser man that made butchering easy. Fish we had a nice oak plank with an electric pump and sink at the boathouse I was taught to filet all fish except perch my mother like them gutted and scaled head off and she would fry them whole.  As P210SIG said good times father and son bonding may father had more medals than a Portuguese rear admiral, survival knowledge of living in the depression of war and making do with what little you had and a life of working off times in construction and the oilfield and helping friends as military pay was low. I got to watch and help  him do all kinds of things he built most of our second  first home and I had to help at the time I did not understand what all that accumulated knowledge would do for me, help and even save my life a time or three. I had no clue that his words would follow me all my life about safety security and the what where and how of just about everything, I never did get that sex talk though today I think that is really important where as in my day it was doubtful you would die from local slap and tickle I guess he figured those military STD movies might work their magic.
    • Good times , father & son bonding outdoors. Now that my sons in college, we have less time, enjoying theses activities together. Lifetime memories, job well done there Drew_ Forge
    • now that was a good father son thing to do...congrats...
