Really? I mean, have you seen some of the quality of junk you can buy? I’d much rather have half the quantity and double the quality than double the quantity and half the quality. I would rather buy used quality than brand new quantity.

Consumer fear is increasing. The old saying is “You get what you pay for.” Consumers these days only wish that were true. The other day, I bought a flash light. It was not expensive, but didn’t appear to be a cheapy thing either. I was had. I thought this might be something useful. It might still be useful if I can convert it into something like a spit wad shooter or keep it as a battery holder. “Hey, Jared, you have two AAA batteries?” “Sure, hold on. By the way, did you see my new battery holder that looks like a flashlight?”

It is similar to dove hunting. There is going out into the woods, carrying a shot gun, and seeing five birds 100 yards away and then there is going to E4 Ranch and limiting out by 6:00 p.m. By the grace of the over-under god, I fell into the latter.
