Can't afford 25 dollars?

Last, for those of you that say you can't afford American, in the last 30 days I needed a good set of screwdrivers badly, I was tempted to go into debt, and buy a new set from the Matco guy, but I waited. I ended up winning a complete set of Matco screwdrivers on ebay for 25 dollars. They looked horrible in the pictures, that is why nobody really bid on them, but when they arrived, they just had a lot of grease and oil on them. I just got out my Armor All cleaner, took the grease and oil off, then used Armor All on the handles, and they are perfect, in fact, they are Matco's latest screwdrivers, and they look brand new, are you saying you wouldn't fork out 25 bucks for a set of Matco screwdrivers if you needed them, I can hardly wait for this answer.

and I bet you preach freedom and all that stuff and support the same people who enabled the corporations to take the jobs to China, yet will sit here and lecture me about what I can afford and not afford. You got a sweet deal. should I turn down a couple months work til I find a deal like that?

not really hostile, but anger management is about letting the anger out as well as holding it in.

no i wouldnt id get craftsman that way when they break i can take them to the nearest sears and get it replaced with no problem. and i dont care about the fact that some 8 year old in a sweatshop might have helped box it to be shipped here.

they also whine and complain about GM getting a bailout. but how many jobs were saved by that happening?

Hurry down for the blue light special on tools.

I don't preach to anyone, and I especially wouldn't preach to two morons, maybe you two can put your tools together and have enough to fix one car. You must have a lot of time on your hands if you can go to Sears over and over to replace broken tools, maybe you two can carpool to save money. America will survive, in spite of you, have a nice day, and say what you want, I won't bother responding, I have better things to do, don't you have tools that need to be exchanged anyway???

i have probably half of the income that you get and i bet i have more to show than you do because i live smarter than you, and your calling someone else a moron? sounds to me like you need to let some anger out that you have been managing too long.

Sorry, I don't shop at Sears

First of all, I don't shop at Sears for tools, secondly, I have been given a lot of tools made in Taiwan, the only reason I even accept them is not to hurt the giver's feelings. Third, just as soon as I can, I donate the tools to Goodwill, because I won't be caught dead with a foreign ratchet. I would bet everything I have in the world that you don't have more to show, than I do, and I did it without loading up on items made outside of America. I also gave my country 24 years of loyal military service, how many have you given her??

let me guess, you want me to kiss your arse now for the "24 years of loyal military service"? because that has nothing to do with the topic. what was you in, supply? as for tools, craftsman will do the job just as well as matco, mac or snap on at a fraction of the cost. so when i purchase them instead i can afford other things. so if you want to donate any craftsman tools ill gladly take them.
