The Trump Family Triggered The American Leftist

Ignore the in-my-face obvious issues and lend all of my attention to unwarranted, groundless non-issues? Not happening!

Give me my way or else....

Give me my way or else....

Predictable and Destructive

A few stores which had been carrying Ivanka Trump's clothing line, suddenly and without cause or reason...no longer wished to do so.

They preferred to cut all ties with her and her clothing line and go on their merry way, without her!

A sudden aversion and dislike of her and her clothing line?

These stores obviously had no problem with Ivanka before and obviously had an interest in her taste, at one time, what happened?

If her designs had suddenly gone from smart, sharp and elegant, to dowdy, dull and plain, definitely!

But for Nordstroms, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, (to name a few) to completely cut ties, downplay her product, downright reject her and restrict her products from being sold in their store, simply because,Donald Trump is her Father, was a pathetic display. Comparable to the temper tantrum of a child not getting their way.

For adults to conduct business this way...

We don't like Daddy, therefore we don't like you, (imagine hands by ears, tongues sticking out)

We wanted Hillary, we had our little hearts set on Hillary, it's so not fair, (images from 3rd grade and Romper Room are flooding back, now front and center in my mind) is oh so....shall we stick with the theme?

It is juvenile!

I understand that petitions were presented from equally agitated 'patrons', demanding that Nordstrom cut ties, for no good reason other than....they don't like Ivanka's Daddy either!

They didn't vote for him, they too, wanted Hillary and they too, acted out, by petitioning the stores they patronize, to punish Donald Trump, by punishing his daughter.

It is all so very juvenile!

  • I have no horse in this race.
  • I do not own any stock in her Company.
  • I've never purchased her product, (I can't even afford to shop at these stores) but I may be making a purchase in the very near future, on principle. I do not know if her clothing is affordable or overpriced, but that doesn't matter, I will purchase something even if it is only a scarf.

These actions against her were wrong!

As for the reasons why, the reasons why she was ostracized, so very wrong...it's a matter of principle and if it can happen to her, it can happen to any one of us, at any time!

the-looney-left-unleashing-their-inner-brat

Justified

We've seen bakers and florists, store owner/operators of every type business, forced to close, forced to spend entire life savings in an effort to save their businesses, because they've chosen to take a stand on principle and for that....

leftists have sought to destroy them and their livelihoods!

But, only if they are bakers, florists, store owners, etc. that empowered, bratty, self-righteous leftists, feel as if they are justified in destroying!

If it can happen to any of these people, it can happen to any one of us, at any time!

All of this, along with College students having little hissy fits, medium-sized dysfunction or grande over the top malfunction and why?

Because they don't like it when a particular speaker, that they do not like and do not approve of (conservative/libertarian) is scheduled to speak at their School.

  • It's not mandatory that all Students attend
  • It has not one thing to do with them, if other students wish to attend
  • They'll not be put out in the least, by those just wanting to go hear what the guy or gal has to say, no skin off their noses (they can certainly leave campus if and when they feel as if their nose is in jeopardy)

But, they do take issue, because they do not understand how freedom of speech works.

They seem to believe that the First Amendment only applies to some (them) and only applies, when it is their type of speech, spoken by their type of guy or gal on subjects that interest (them).

They become the ones working to ostracize any scheduled speaker and all potential attendees, when scheduled speaker does not meet their approval or live up to their standards!

These 'standards', make them the ones disrupting, not the other way around. It is not a result of the invited guest, they disagree with, showing up, causing trouble, it is a result of their ignorance and their very limited understanding of all things!

In far too many cases, they've gone far beyond their right to speak out.

They've destroyed!

They've destroyed other People's property, including the very property that they somehow think they own, because they attend school there.

How much is College these days? 50-60K a year?

That kind of money being paid out by somebody and in their little fits of rage, these little brats...destroy the very property where their facility of higher learning sits!

Young geniuses?

Powerful Brats

A few former brats that didn't grow up but rather grew into ultra-powerful brats...those with a lot more clout than the nose-out-of-joint store manager or store customer or campus bully...decided that they know better than all; better than the President, better than the advisors to the President and better than all of those specializing in America's security.

So the President of the United States, he who promised to secure our borders, in order to keep us all as safe as possible, in service to us...was shut down repeatedly!

Shut down by not so typical judges, pegged as political operatives, with reputations as liberal activists. They who determined that intelligence does not matter, advisors do not count and that particular Presidents and their security specialists are to only be ignored and insulted...

All that the American people want and need to know is that all that seek to come here, to do harm here, are shut down long before they have the opportunity to do so....and somehow, in some way, taking preventative measures to do that, is a big problem for these liberal Judges and for leftists in general

These activist judges...blocking all common sense measures, leave all of us more vulnerable.

One-sided reporting, favorable only to them, does not make this statement any less true or any of us...any less vulnerable!

Valuable time spent on interior battles, could have been spent on getting the work that the American people expected to be done, done.

We expect those best qualified to be making these important decisions and not those desiring to place roadblocks, in order to hurt Trump, as they continually play their dangerous political games.

In an all out effort to make America great again, it is more important that even more effort goes into keeping America as safe as humanly possible.

Why is that too much to ask?

Are we really going to allow spoiled leftist brats to call all the shots and if so...where does that leave room for liberty?

More importantly, where does that leave the security of this Country?

The Schumer Shutdown....Predictable!!!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on January 15, 2018:

I was torn on this...start a whole new article or post it in the comment section of things having to do with brats.

Bingo! Choice made.

This has been bugging me since it happened and I must ventilate!

My daughter and I were at a Pancake House with her little ones, they are ages 4 and (nearly) 2. There was a balloon girl making balloon animals and my four year old Granddaughter spotted her immediately. We had our tip money ready, we waited patiently, but she never came, never came. Finally my daughter walked over to the area where she was hanging out exclusively, thinking a birthday party was utilizing her time. Not so...instead, she found a table of young ladies in their late teens/early to mid 20's, taking up her time.

There were other young children scattered throughout the restaurant, waiting patiently, but ignored because these young adults, apparently, felt entitled to balloon lady's time.

It got worse! Balloon lady finally left that table only to be flagged down by another table of young ladies (same ages) with their phones lit up with pictures of animals, flowers and the like, illuminating their table, accompanied by chants of oooh, oooh, oooh, here, here here.

The summoned balloon lady sensed their enthusiasm and went there next.

My daughter, very politely went up to her and commented that her daughter had been waiting patiently for 1 1/2 hours and that we were about to leave. (this group of young ladies had just sat down)

She did apologize that she never made it over, but that was it. We left with a sobbing little girl.

I said something to the Manager and he told me that I needed to understand that there were many small children at some tables, taking up her time!

Oh-Kay!

I obviously cannot call these young ladies leftists or liberals, I do not know their politics.

Are they brats?

Probably.

Self centered?

Definitely.

Oblivious to the world around them and all of those under the age of 5?

Absolutely.

Have they been created? A product of the times and of our education system?

These things I ponder.

Just saw the craziest story, a Librarian pictured as Cat in the Hat, all smiles and seemingly...loving life in her costume, BUT

Fa-Fa Fast Forward...same Librarian pictured holding a letter and a book from Melania Trump, with a look of sadness and disgust.

What is this offensive book causing her such angst you may be asking yourself right now?

Why it's...Cat In the Hat (oh yes, it is hard to keep up, but apparently this book is now Racist)

Story/Pictures led to this little ditty:

IF you aren't consistent from one day to the next

IF you don't know what to think, until you are told

IF you can't keep track of what you are supposed to be offended by

IF your favorite book becomes one you are ready to burn, because the First Lady, Melania Trump, sent it to you.....

You might be a LIBERAL!

Woohoo Paula...Nuff said!

Suzie from Carson City on June 22, 2017:

abw....Less than 5 min ago, on my car radio, I listened to David Gergen speak.

He made a lengthy comment so I cannot "quote" each and every word. His main topic was the continual outlandish behavior, lies, media tricks, rumors, innuendos & tantrums of the Left, have become unbearable & intolerable by BOTH sides, stating the Dems are now disgusted & embarrassed by the shenanigans of their own party.....

His very last statement was (this is nearly word for word) "Based on all of this, it is a very real possibility Trump will win a 2nd term~~so the Dems need to take heed.".....

Of course this was so expected and bound to occur. Even loving, devoted parents can only tolerate continual childish tantrums before taking remedial actions.....wouldn't you say?

It appears at this point, to be not only appropriate but necessary to tell the Loose-lipped Libs to...GROW UP.

I know I am now sorry I ever voted for a Democrat when I did. If nothing else, the Left of today has pushed this Independent toward the Right in a huge way. "P"

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 22, 2017:

Unbelievable......or is it predictable?

Dems immediately jump on the Senate Health Care Bill.

It is mean. It is cruel and yet....it is basically the same old, same old!

Dems alone decided that the Government should be in the Health Care Industry and they took us down this road. They told us daily and Barack Obama repeated it daily, "Premiums will go down, Insurance will be more affordable, we'll keep our current plan, we'll keep our current Doctor, blah blah blah......."

Now that they alone have gotten us into One Big Mess, they'll condemn the Reps on their every measure to repair it.

Unbelievable? Nope...Historically Predictable!

Just came across this. Perfectly stated!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on April 16, 2017:

There's video circulating of a clueless, angry leftist brat, with a bandanna hiding his face, getting in the face of a proud, non-cowardly, unmasked Army Veteran.

Even wheelchair-bound, with this punk talking down to him and calling him un-American....the Veteran, stands so much taller than this punk could ever dream of!

(decided not to share the video due to the language. I'm sure you'll have no problem finding it)

Banned cause of PISSANTS Promisem and Dean Traylor on March 21, 2017:

Anyone who understands the left and liberalism would be "who knew that Activist Judges would have more Power than POTUS!" It's been their plan forever, to subvert the judicial system, the education system, the media and implement as much government control that is run by unelected officials as possible, strike that, as conceivable.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 21, 2017:

Another former brat that grew up to be an Activist Judge, this time a federal Judge in Hawaii...wanted it his way and so, got it....his way!

Common Sense is set aside, the American people's Security is of no concern, as the political games continue.....

Who knew that Activist Judges have more Power than POTUS?

Suzie from Carson City on March 10, 2017:

Some of our long time hubbers participate in Forums only or at least for the majority of time they're on the site. You'll notice who they are because there name comes up repeatedly. They are really into a steady stream of forums as their enjoyment.

Then there are those who won't go near them for love nor money. My HP BFF or "main squeeze" as I call her, warned me early on to stay OFF the forums as they are nothing but trouble.

That's one warning I should have listened to!

I will always come by to see your latest work, a.b. but honestly, it's only fair of me to tell you, if (WOE is me) has commented, I will not. I see her for what she is~~Poisonous, bitter & a LIAR. In my real life, I would never associate with trash like that, so I won't do it here either. She is in uncontrollable, constant attack mode....like the ghetto dwellers are. I don't hang in the ghettos.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 10, 2017:

Hang around Paula. I'd miss you!

I've just ventured into the Forums, trying to be more involved than I've been.

It's a bit like a cage match sometimes isn't it?

Suzie from Carson City on March 10, 2017:

That particular "other" one is a flaming, young & dumb, liberal. She has this delusion she's found all the mysteries, secrets & vital keys to God~Politics~& "life in general." She's actually comedic relief, but also quite disturbing. I'm not 100% sure but I think I may have responded to her once or twice. That was before she revealed herself as a stupid (and bold, brassy) kid (and I don't care how old she is..her words are those of a stupid kid.) She's also widely disliked and disrespected, so she's her own worst enemy....I totally ignore her.

I have not commented once on a political or Religious hub or question for a solid month. I needed to get rid of all the poison and vitriol that's been circulating this site for much too long now. It also doesn't look like some of the nut cases are letting up any time soon. I simply have removed myself from it.

There are some on here that I liked a lot and respected and followed....who have been totally horrible, repetitive and nasty, snippy, snarky! I won't ever read their stuff again. This makes me sad, because I'll never tell them why they have changed my opinion of them. It doesn't matter to me and I'm sure it wouldn't matter to them.

"People" and human nature, human behavior is my forte. Yet, It never fails that I continually learn something new AND NEGATIVE about them."people", that is.

If things don't calm down here pretty soon, I'll be around much less often. My real life keeps me terribly busy~ physically and mentally drained. I need all this BULL$HIT like I need a hole in the head. No one can change that but me. So, as always, I'll do what I need to do to take care of myself. I'm communicating only with those whom I share ideals, hobbies, fascinating topics & attitudes on life, with.....that would surely not be the friggan "crazies" around here. If I NEVER see her bitch, whine & complain once more, it will be too soon. She's also extremely vengeful & vindictive......Proof? Just READ her rants!!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 10, 2017:

I can see it! I think I'm finally done trying!

I've recently had some back and forth with Misfit, as well.

That's all I'm going to say about that!

Suzie from Carson City on March 10, 2017:

a.b. Pls don't think for a second I just spilled my guts in an effort to discuss "deleting" with you. That is nowhere near my intention. That sort of thing is each hubbers choice..none of my business. I make my practice known so that these bull-blabbers know better than to drop their crap on anything I write on my site.

Proof positive.....just feast your eyes on what she had the friggan nerve to post....more & more BOO-HOO...Oh poor me, pity me....look at this unfairness against poor little me.....

a.b. JUST LOOK AT THE BALLS ON THAT GIRL?? It is inconceivable.

U what??? think you'll get through to her??? OMG, well thanks for the huge laugh, a.b. She's hopeless. Don't even tell me you can't see it.

Banned cause of PISSANTS Promisem and Dean Traylor on March 10, 2017:

Misfit? Yeah, she and you leslie are two peas in a pod. And if you were banned I guarantee you it wasn't for you saying "you have no credibility with me either" but hey you lie about everything else so what else would we expect from you about why you were banned.

And before you call me a troll (which is one reason to ban someone who calls people that call them out on lies a troll, I'll leave you Leslie with this:

https://usercontent2.hubstatic.com/13437625_f1024....

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on March 10, 2017:

hmm. i got a 3 month ban for saying, "you have no credibilty with me either", and look at you.

i rest my case.

discrimination.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 10, 2017:

Paula - I know that you did not share all of this because you needed an I'm sorry.....but, I am!

Remember the song, 'Walk a mile in my shoes?

I've deleted comments before.

I keep thinking that I can get through to Leslie......

Suzie from Carson City on March 10, 2017:

a.b. Poor Leslie...She cries & whines so constantly, it's clear she confuses herself far more than she confuses others. I did not ever say I didn't LIKE her SOS handle. I merely stated that it must stand for "Same Old $hit."......which I'm sure SHE didn't like because it's much too true for her taste.

Don't you just love the way she screams that people should not judge others......YET, she judges others daily by "assuming" who has and who has not been "victimized!!" She claims you can't speak on something because you've never been victimized like poor pathetic Leslie has. She's the classic example of a "Victimization Junkie" she loves it.....she thrives on it. If tomorrow, she was free from any and all her alleged victimization, her life would be over.

She's come at me in much the same way. All she's ever proven to me, besides that she's an Expert Whiner, is that the woman doesn't know a single thing about me and even less about my life. A life that she would most definitely have FOLDED under completely! Trust me.

Suffice it to say, I have been a victim, so often and so egregiously, my story is next to impossible to tell. Had Leslie been challenged in life with even anything close to what I have had to live through, what I have endured, struggled with, coped with, risen above and survived......she would have blown her brains out a hundred times by now. She could never have withstood the pain, suffering & pure guts it takes to handle a life truly filled with tragedy, pain and chaos. This is mostly why she never impresses me and why her BS goes on and on unnoticed. I cannot tolerate cry-babies who do nothing else in life but bitch bitch bitch and point fingers at the whole world for their problems. Yes, I know about her husband...and it's an ugly tale BUT she wasn't married to him at the time! She married him AFTER....which reconfirms she is a Victimization Junkie....who goes TOWARD negative issues rather than away from! I rest my case.

I washed my hands of her.....and as for her newly-acquired "buddy, confidante & alleged mentor, mfchk"....that young lady needs to know she's on the Fast Track to receive the non-coveted award of Expert Blow Hard. I won't even waste my valuable time on the likes of her. They're so so very sad & mixed up. It's just basically based in ignorance...while groping fiercely in the dark. Leslie wants to know if "she's onto something."...Well, yes, she is. Apparently she's into drugs and "onto" her own hallucinations!!

For my own site, I chose long ago to use my delete privilege, immediately and often. I won't allow trash & lies or speculation based upon sheer ignorance on my site. I protect what's mine.

(She insults intelligent people to make herself feel better. It just doesn't work........someone should inform her, ~~insults don't nullify intelligence.)

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on March 10, 2017:

well im glad to hear that.

see you later, ab

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 10, 2017:

No, she is not correct, as far as I'm concerned.

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on March 10, 2017:

thats why i asked you.

not passing judgement whatsoever.

i would like to know if misfit is on to something. because it would explain a lot of things.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 10, 2017:

You really should read my Article 'Roe v Wade', before you pass judgement on what I believe on this subject.

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on March 10, 2017:

*sigh.* i dont have a problem with who i am. others do. and until youve BEEN victimized, you really cant speak on it.

and misfitchick gave me a clue yesterday. is it true that right to lifers see pro choice women as animals? that we enjoy killing babies, murdering them in the womb? is that why they treat us with such venom?

either way, id like to think if you were discriminated against, youd not take it lying doen either.

and it is not only me. there are a lot of people who have joined, and are members just like anyone else, and get treated differently than whoever it is pulling this crap, and their minions.

so, unless and until it happens to you....youd think that you would support those being discriminated against, instead of being on the side of the mistreatment.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 10, 2017:

Oh brother (sista)... now I've heard it all. You dish out and dish out and then act as if you're a victim when and if, you get it in return.

"To let them have their way" that is such a cop out.

"Perfect like all Rightys"......

I don't know of anyone here, that has spoken on this subject or any other, that believes themself perfect! I know I'm far from it!

I don't know how old you are Yes, but it is high time that you learn who you are and what you believe! If you can come to terms with who you are and what it is that... you... believe.... deep at your core, instead of grasping at straws, throwing stuff out to see if it will stick, repeating liberal talking points and playing the victim, you'll learn to be comfortable in your skin and you will not be bothered or offended by "Rightys" or Lefties or by anyone!

You'll be in control.

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on March 10, 2017:

thats funny...and wrong! i changed my name to "yes dear" to placate the mockers. paula didnt like sos. shwartz didnt like fut, so i chose "yes dear" to let them have their way!

arent i nice? arent i supposed to be while others rip democrats to shreds?

ill tell you about one time i changed it....someone had started hiding all my comments. they never showed up on the feed.....for a long time. so, i picked an avi i liked...a sexy mama. and no one saw it or my comments but me. then one day, a comment showed on the feed, and of course, paula was offended by my avi. shes perfect, you know...just like all you rightys.

anyway, i changed my avi to a nun...to please the easily offended. got tired of that-- went on from there. but i really mean the sos and the fut.

its just too much for the constant liberal bashers to bear.

so, when they tell me i must be nice while they denigrate to hearts content, all i can say is "yes, dear"

They are getting a dose of their own medicine.

Michigan just released a study that found the poisoning of water in Flint was due to racism. State (Snyder) was trying to save money. Quote: "they never would have done that in a more affluent, white neighborhood".....So, imagine the gvt poisoned white people....imagine they told men what they can and cant do with their private organs....imagine they called white people rapists and drug dealers.....imagine they told jews to stay out of america....imagine the tea party had national guard sicked on them.....imagine the prez and vice prez gave preference to muslims.....imagine Putin helped Clinton win....imagine RNC had their private convos aired out for public consumption.....

Unless and Until the crap from the right stops....the crap from the left never will.

No more one sided bullying....those days are over.

And Paula, not to worry. the doghouse was secured by metal stakes 4 feet in the ground. I ruined my back digging them out and the garbage truck pulled up just as I was putting it by the curb.

The driver was a woman!

She told me they can't take the dog house and if I did't put it back where I found it, stakes and all, I will be issued a fine.*

Well thank you. You three are really classy women so I know you'll appreciate the rest of the story.

My wife works in an office with three other young women and I had the flowers sent to her office. They are so nice to my wife (and even if they weren't) I thought it would be rude to leave them out so I sent a small bouquet to all three.

I got more appreciation from my wife for doing that than the flowers I sent her! well just as much anyway. After she goes to work I'm putting "the doghouse" out with the trash, bet she won't even notice. Funny, I will miss it, spent alot of time in there.

I had to come up with something - every Valentine's day it's a poem and every valentine's day I start with a blank mind and it just happens. She liked it and that's all that matters to me.

Thank you! Crazy!!

Anxious to see if Taze will share.

Yves on February 14, 2017:

What a fun, and romantic story, AB. Thank you for sharing and congratulations on a successful marriage. Yay!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 14, 2017:

Since it is Valentine's Day....I'll share something personal.

Back in December, Hubby and I attended a Wedding.

The D.J had all married couples take the dance floor and keep dancing as she said, married more than 5 years...10 years...15 years and on and on and up to...over 35 years.

We won!

Last couple standing (dancing) and for the record, we were not the oldest people in the room! Married at age 22.

Something worth celebrating!

Happy Valentine's Day All!!

Yves on February 14, 2017:

Lol, Taze. Thanks for admitting it. Ha! P.S. Inquiring minds want to know: What did you write to your wife this lovely Valentine's Day?

Liberals? Difficult, yes. Complex, yes. But the one thing you can always count on with liberals is hidden under whatever their position on anything is are alternate usually clandestine motives that need to be covered up with lies.

Men? Hard to understand? Not really. Remember in As Good as it Gets, when Jack Nicholson, was asked "How do you write women so well?"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIQj3SecNCM

Well for a woman to understand a man think of a woman and remove emotion, empathy, class and effort. I'm not saying that is what men are, I'm saying that will help a woman to understand a man.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 14, 2017:

Aww... don't worry I'll still refer to you as Taze.

You men are hard to understand at times, as well.

But.......nowhere near the difficulties and complexities of trying to figure out and understand Liberals!

My wife? She calls me her Hunka. According to her I'm like a Grizzly Adams only cleaner...? you women I'll never understand how you think. Oh, I sent her a bouquet today and I'm sure you'd approve. wanna see the card I put with it?

Suzie from Carson City on February 14, 2017:

I'm glad to hear that DTMB. Despite all the political rancor, at the end of the day, Mike seems like a nice man with whom you might enjoy a cup of coffee & some (non-political) conversation.

I suppose given a miracle, I may even be able to "coffee with Leslie," providing there's a bathroom real close by...........Take your Wife out for a Valentine Get-away. & Have fun.

Banned cause of PISSANTS Promisem and Dean Traylor on February 13, 2017:

lol Paula, you have the greatest sense of humor... and humility.

I only say about PP, you call him Mike, he drew first blood as he always does with snide innuendo otherwise I had no desire to converse with and will never be the starter of another discourse with the likes of PP.

Suzie from Carson City on February 13, 2017:

DTMB.....I know you're right! It's become like you & Mike. I try like hell to ignore her but she's like that one annoying fly that constantly buzzes around leaving their nasty germs around & won't just fly out the window into someone's windshield. I VOW from this point on to completely ignore her bloviating & "woe is me...oh we want Hillary." Of course they want Hillary! They see lying, cheating & corruption as virtues!

Yves, it IS a total waste of time,,,correct! And thank you for the wake-up. I worked so long with those in mental & emotional crisis, it's a reflex to respond. I'm retired & that needs to be how I deal with it! Sorry Les, spew your incomprehensible babble to the wind! No one is reading your dribble! There's a small part of me that pities her. She's so needy. Just like a brain-washed zombie....Sad,

a.b. Way back when, I was tolerant of her. I attempted to have intelligent, calm interaction with her. But it became evident she prefers to be a whining, foot-stomping toddler in continual tantrum mode. I have 12 grandchildren...don't need another one!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 13, 2017:

I hear you. I like Dillard's (I've always liked Macy's) but the content of my wallet cries out ---Ross Dress for Less.... I pray they stay out of Politics or I'm in big trouble. lol

Yves on February 13, 2017:

AB...Luckily for me, I don't shop in any of those stores anyway. Otherwise, I'd be up the creek. Lol. I just hope Dillards doesn't join the others in all this foolishness because I was planning on doing some shopping this weekend. Ha!

Paula, I've had my run-in's with (possibly borderline) Cluster B personality types, as well. It's a lost cause. They are unable to see reason, so it's like arguing with the picture AB provided at the top of her article. Nothing computes except What They Feel. There is never any back and forth exchange of logic, facts and reason. It's impossible for them. May as well argue with a toddler. Same thing.

Sorry, LMC...just pointing out an obvious fact. That is not to say you care abut facts...

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 13, 2017:

Add to the growing list; Neiman Marcus, K Mart and Sears, all cutting ties with the Trump name/label.

I had forgotten about Macy's cutting ties,(no pun intended) that was during the campaign, I believe.

Macy's Stores have been struggling, many scheduled to close. One near me is scheduled to close it's doors.

K Mart Stores in this area began closing long before there was a President Trump.

Sears Stores have been struggling for some time.

I don't know much about Neiman Marcus...

but I think the old expression, 'Cutting off the nose to spite the face' is apropos here.

"I'd certainly say you shouldn't waste your time interacting with Les. You guys go at it daily. What have either of you gained?"

What's good for the goose.... :-)

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 13, 2017:

"Want you to be silent". Really?

Why do I allow your comments?

Why did I ask you two questions?

Which you did not answer.

I am the last person that would want anyone to be "silenced"or "to fall in line".

Per usual, you misunderstand everything that is 'attempted' to be pointed out to you.

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on February 13, 2017:

you have your gvt ab. i dont support anything about it. and i would love to know the rational for demanding i do, given the fact i heard nothing good about obama from any of you for 7 years! and no, it is not tit for tat. it is republicans expecting people to fall in line and be silent. or just take their mocking insults lying down.

BUT, it is a hub, not the forums, and i should have just let it go.

i wont bother you again ab!

take care.

Suzie from Carson City on February 13, 2017:

Hmmm...seems a damned pity your left LIBERAL POTUS improved none of those horrible conditions you speak of. I expected him to. I voted for him. He proved himself a loser, a liar and a threat to our safety & security. He's done. Needs to go away and stay away. Total failure and disappointment.

Saw of new photo of your girl today. She's looking more and more like George Soros everyday. Have a great week les! Sincerely, Miss La De Da

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 12, 2017:

Love - this isn't fun and games, tit for tat.

The actions of Liberals of late, jeopardize more than the livelihood of a clothing company.

Because they do not like the man that we've elected as our President, they break things and set fires. They destroy property and shut down townhall meetings.

Do you condone such behavior?

The actions of the 9th Circuit Court and the little games they play, jeopardizes our Security and puts lives at risk.

Do you trust that they know better than the Advisors to the President?

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on February 12, 2017:

what is wrong with you? a differing opinion makes you go off on such a tangent?

of course i know who you voted for. "crooked hillary" was enough for you. you forget the beating i took for simply listing my reasons for supporting her, and your admitted contempt of her. and people like you govern the same way you treat people. "you dont belong here. no one wants you. go find sonewhere else to comment"

and then act like im not 100% right to say we would be better off splitting as a country!

you may not need gvt, la-dee-da. but other people do. and not for any blame on themselves, but because everything is so frigging expensive. and its frigging expensive because of people like trump, who own businesses and must turn a huge profit, and look for ways to skip out on taxes, so they go up for everyone else.

all you need do is look around. people cannot pay their bills, and not for lack of trying. government is the only entity powerful enough to take on these forces of greed and complete unconcern for people they hurt.

and now these same people who say "sorry, were broke", can shell out 21 billion dollars for an inneffective campaigh slogan wall! and btw...there are those of us who pay taxes who want our taxes to help struggling americans, not provide cushion for rich people.

and last i knew, i am just as much a member here as you. when i saw the huge cartoon head, the insulting title, and the mocking snide comments, i felt the need to defend those you all mocked.

if you cant take what you dish out....who are you calling a whiny baby!

Suzie from Carson City on February 12, 2017:

Les...You don't SEE a G. Damned thing! You just spout off crap you know nothing about. You don't know if I voted at all...much less who I voted for! Did you vote? I don't give a crap if you did or didn't. Keep your F---g nose out of my business.

"Yuk?" LOL....yeah ok Leslie....YUK yourself. Try growing up. You print random crap just to make yourself think you've said something. Nothing you ever say has any validity nor strength.

This "Gal" as you say will have a really great 4 years....because I SEE to it that my life is great, happy, healthy and worthwhile. It has nothing to do with who is or who is not in the White House. I make my own success and I direct my own life. Are you so dependent on the Government your life suffers based on it?? You're more pathetic than I thought.

How stupid of you to say "It's all on you." You, me, your Aunt Tillie and Uncle Herman....are tiny little specks on the earth......Ain't Nothin" all on" little people. Jesus Christ Leslie, GROW the Eff up!! You are a hopeless Politically liberal, whining needy baby. Grow a spine. Be responsible for your own life. Mama Hillary ain't gonna breast feed you!

Suzie from Carson City on February 12, 2017:

There you go again Les....thinking you know every friggan thing there is to know..........you don't KNOW if I even voted at all, much less who I voted for! I don't know if you bothered to vote and I also don't give a damn!

What's"ALL on us?" Do you know or do you just like to type random words that make no sense whatsoever? Ya better try harder. "Yuk"...yourself Les. and for Christ's sake, grow up and be a real woman! Why do you need a government to tell you what you're worth & what rights you have?? I know who & what I am, what my value is and that I have every single right I want and need. I also know how to handle my own life without help from the government.!! EVER!

You must know an awful lot of female LOSERS!

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on February 12, 2017:

i see why you voted for trump. yuk.

you gals have a great 4yrs...its really all on you....literally

Suzie from Carson City on February 12, 2017:

I seriously doubt that is what a.b. is saying nor that anyone says to you. It's your twisted manner of translating comments, your negative attitude and your obsessive persistence to whine, complain, bitch and pout.

Instead of using your passion and energy to focus on your OWN site, write constructive HUBS on your Liberal loyalty, adoration of Hillary, anger & hatred of the the Right.....you choose to hang around the sites of those whose beliefs and loyalties are in direct contrast to yours....so you can harass, rant, accuse & brow-beat everyone on the opposite side. You ARE not only predictable, you're obsessed, annoying and hateful.

Write FOR what you believe in. Attempt to present what YOU believe is BEST for America....politically, environmentally, economically, in terms of education, Health coverage. Do something constructive for your Political ideals. You really prefer to be DESTRUCTIVE toward your perceived enemies. It should be blatantly obvious to you this is not what works, leslie. It's surely not worked for you!'

Use your brain for Good not for Ranting about what YOU think is BAD!

If you're so loyal, so devoted, so convinced your liberal views will save the world, use your voice to spread that news.

The vast majority of people don't listen to screaming haters, carrying negative messages about their opposition.

Back off the negative, destructive, hateful & unproductive. For an uplifting change, TRY positive, proactive, constructive and loving For all those women you are so terribly concerned about. You know, the ones who may have to be responsible with those bodies we have control over....they may have to use birth control, not share their bodies with the United States Marine Corps. They may have to STOP depending on abortion to take care of their lack of education, moral fiber & egregious LACK of that CONTROL OF THEIR OWN BODIES YOU SCREAM THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO! I agree with you. Women DO have the right of control over their own bodies! When do you suppose they'll start using that control?

Instead of screeching about what you want & what you demand and believing only libs are able to run the country.....why don't you WRITE something profound about the very things you believe in!

How about starting with a HUB on the Mental, Physical & Self-respect Benefits of Abortion. Hey, give it try, Les, before you wear yourself down to a frazzle just bitching about the evil Right, Independent & any ideal or belief you just don't won't can't believe in!!

It is after all, the American way. Just do it!

Oh Love....You are so Predictable!

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on February 12, 2017:

no, its because a campaign was started called #grabyourwallet that targeted stores who carried the trump name.

nothing to do with obama at all. and now you trump supporters are boycotting nordstroms for dropping trump! so, i mean....what are you complaining about??

and, your prez signed an executive order doing away with the individual mandate....how are they going to pay for the very sick?

they wont. people will die. hillary was going to expand on aca, not kill it. trump said "the aca is a disaster. we are going to repeal and replace". thats what you wanted, not me.

there will only be more options for people with money, or thise who are healthy.

poor and terminally ill will be placed on block grants, and theres only so much of that to go around.

if the stubborn, recalcitrant republicans had agreed to joining the exchanges, and expanding medicare, we would be fine. but they had to ruin obama instead. there is no reason in the world to repeal tbe aca. its all hate hate hate.

as far as this gun loving so called right to life stance....

sorry. not everyone agrees with that, and women's bodies are their own, not the state's, and not some religion's.

learn what usa stands for! its liberty and justice for all, not just-us!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 12, 2017:

Love - if any "Bottom Lines are suffering" it's because Barack Obama has been the President for the last eight years and People have been trying to hang on to every dollar.

Even you must admit...it is very suspicious that Ivanka is dumped NOW, after her Father is elected President and the higher-ups at Nordstrom were financial Supporters of Hillary. Yes?

Healthcare wasn't being discussed but since you brought it up. If anyone has lost their healthcare, it is because they couldn't afford the massive premium increases of Obamacare or maybe they lost their favorite Doctor because of Obamacare and feel as if they are no longer receiving the best care. Maybe it is because they lost their job or were cut back to part-time, because the already struggling small businesses they were working for couldn't afford Obamacare.

There is no Right to Healthcare. There's a Right to Life, (oops tell that to the 58 million babies aborted since 1973) Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

But, even so, no one is going to lose their healthcare because Trump won and Clinton didn't.

Hopefully, it will only become more affordable, with more options for People.

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on February 11, 2017:

their bottom line already suffered because of ivanka. and nieman marcus has removed her jewelry from their online site. #grabyourwallet has beatem you to it. and this is a great example of "upper class angst".

other people are worried about losing their life-saving healthcare....

that is the direct result of ivanka's father. and this is why we object.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 10, 2017:

Au contraire Mon Ami....I'm sure that's what you have heard through your liberal grapevine or read in your daily News Feed.

It is ALL about her Dad, not declining sales.

But, I have a feeling, Sales will go through the roof now. I'll buy a scarf, maybe two and other Ladies, (Soccer Moms perhaps) will buy too,

stimulating the Economy with no help from the Gov.....Win Win!

Leslie McCowen from Cape Cod, USA on February 10, 2017:

tsk tsk....cant we get along? bwahaha

so, you all...who brag about voting in a business man, actually think a business would drop ivanka cause they dont like her daddy??

they dropped her because her sales were tanking. smart business move, no?

thats why a business man is the absolute worst to have as prezident.

if you dont benefit the bottom line...eh, seeya. who needs ya?

and really, you cant call the women who shop at nordstroms "brats"....they're more like soccer moms. that stuff isnt cheap.

so, it wasnt "brats" that voted with their purses, it was soccer moms.... who are outraged at this cruel despot sitting in our seat of power.

#grabyourwallet. just like #indivisible. not giving in, not going away.

you really do yourselves harm by insulting fellow american moms.

i guess you'll never learn: you are a minority people here.

get with 2017, or keep getting mad at the majority of us, who still believe in americas ideals.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 10, 2017:

Hear Hear Ladies

....and what about the treatment of Betsy DeVos? OMG

She is not even given day 1, before these brats are blocking entry into her building and stepping out in front of her car...(toddlers and cars!!)

All the more reason that she get to work and quickly cut through the crap of this bloated Institution, seeing to it that Parents can place their Children in the School of their Choice...so they don't end up like these products of failed schools....stepping out in front of moving cars!

Yves on February 10, 2017:

I knew the Intolerant Left was bad, but now they've lost their minds. What stupidity, to drop Ivanka's line because some liberals started whining. Don't they always? Who knows, maybe Nordstrom was afraid these punks might organize to destroy their property or threaten their staff. (Actually, I hear these idiots have been confrontational with other shoppers.)

Well, I guess that's one way to avoid drama---just reward those who use bad behavior to achieve their objectives, thus strengthening the toddler mentality. I wonder if these whiners hate themselves. As for Nordstrom, they are cowards. Nevertheless, they'll probably continue to do just fine, unfortunately.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 10, 2017:

Aww Shucks.....Thanks!

I am going to buy something from her line, even if it's just a scarf.

Heaven knows that she doesn't need the money and I certainly do not need another scarf, but.....

Thanks again Paula! Appreciated!

Suzie from Carson City on February 10, 2017:

ab....You are awesome~a rock star. Your writing talent, your style, the way your mind works~you impress me. Yes, of course it has pretty much everything to do with the fact that I'm with you, all the way. I shake my head "yes" as I read your accurate, common sense REALITY.

This latest tantrum using Ivanka's product line, thoroughly disgusts me. My days of spending my money in those places are over. More importantly, each CEO of the companies will receive a personal letter from me, explaining exactly what I think of their stupidity. Some of my friends have already sent their letters. How these companies take our opinions is of no concern. They simply need to know they've lost customers for their foolish actions.

A few thousand customers here & there will eventually be quite visible to their bottom line. But hey, this is America. Good job a.b. Bravo!
