here's a thought for a sticky... possibly a few well drafted letters and/or speeches that can be copied and pasted into online forms, or even printed and mailed. I'd be happy to proof and edit anything that we'd all like to keep for just such incidents where we feel it might be warranted to let our positions known.

Sounds like a winner to me. Feel free to use mine as a Guinea pig. Chop at will.

Sorry, to be a financial geek. Sears attempted to buy Kmart while Kmart was in bankruptcy. When Kmart exited bankruptcy, they bought Sears. The combined company is called Sears Holding, but Kmart is the owner.

The Sears employees are NOT happy either. Kmart is super cheap for the rank and file employee. They recently stripped them of healthcare benefits in exchange for a 2500.00 towards employees buying their own healthcare benefits.... just not enough on a retail salary.

Geek alert is over.

I DO NOT mind being shown the truth. Show me the proof and I'll ceases doing business with them on the spot. I was told Sears bought out K/Mart. The K/Mart logo was changed while Sears remanded Sears so I excepted it as truth. Doesn't make it fact. Show me facts Jack.

ok I will edit and modify so that it can be copied and pasted with some edit fields that can be changed to suit the type and style. Will get back with it soon... maybe while I have some time tomorrow at work.

Good deal. Either start a new thread and point me to it so I can sticky it, or I'll copy and past it with a redirect here.

Oh well there goes K/Mart and Sears. No, thank goodness I'm not from Michigan.

ok Jerry, the letter is posted in a new thread. I was going to multiple post but I thought that would be better left to you. I think it would be good in both "Gun Control Issues" and "Carry Issues" and anywhere else you might think would be good for folks to see.
