    The Perception Of Patriotism: Sears Censors “The Right Of the People To Bear Arms” On Zippo Lighters

    zippo-censored

    While not necessarily earth shattering, the following report sent to us by a reader demonstrates the false patriotism we see across the entire retail sphere.

    It’s not about celebrating America’s exceptionalism or cultural history; it’s all about the dollars.

    A quick search for Zippo brand lighters at the Sears web site shows a variety of results that include lighters with American flags, Bald eagles, the United States Marine Corps, and even “American Pride.”

    But apparently that pride and Patriotism don’t extend to the actual laws that have governed our land for nearly a quarter of a millennium , the second of which preserves the right of all Americans to bear arms.

    As you’ll notice from the screenshot below, the lighter’s decal cuts off just perfectly enough to be politically correct:

    “The Right Of The People To Bear…”

    sears-zippo-1b

    We thought perhaps it was an error… but the product page itself shows a similarly edited image.

    sears-zippo-2

    Despite the image censorship, you’ll notice the product description provides the full text that is to be displayed on the lighter.

    “The right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed”

    We suspect this was a serious oversight by the thought police and someone at corporate needs to be reprimanded immediately.

    In any case, for just $19.84 you can proudly display the Second Amendment with this brushed chrome windproof lighter.

    “This lighter is perfect symbol of the freedoms of the United States.”

    Given the current state of affairs in the United States where Constitutional liberties are being supplanted at every turn, especially with respect to the Second Amendment, this may indeed be the perfect symbol for how “freedoms” in America have been redefined in recent years. 

     

    Hattip T.R.

    Editor’s Note: It appears that the lighter in question is offered for sale on the Sears web site through third-party retailer “USAetail.” It is not clear whether the policy of cutting off the text of the Second Amendment is a USAetail policy, or a Sears corporate policy.

      wonder if Zippo is aware, and likes the idea of lost sales due to this bunch of BULLSHIT!

      • Hopefully they’ll be aware of it now!

        • Enemy of the State says:

          Its getting to the point where im so sick and tired of being attacked on all fronts , I feel like a man without a country

          so to that I say Fuck anything that represents government.
          Politically correct bullshit , or anything that smells like propaganda

          My rights are not up for negotiation ..even if they think they have removed all our rights they will still have to contend with ME the one that doesn’t recognize their power over anything when it comes to my freedom and rights and what i may do to keep them

          I pity the Fool .. thanks Mr T

        • SmokinOkie says:

          It’s not so much the censored picture of the lighter, it’s what are you gonna do with the lighter?
          Andbody got a fuse?……..ssssssss……….

        • Old Nam vet says:

          They should, I emailed the details to customer care on the Zippo web site. We’ll see.

        • Roscoe johnson says:

          It doesn’t matter, Sears will be out of business before long. We went to a sears store last week and were the only people shopping. Everything was discounted a large amount.. We don’t go there but 2 times per year..

      • john stiner says:

        My story of why I will never shop at Sears again.

        in 1998 I got a flat tire on my Ford Explorer. We had purchsed the tire from Sears and purchased the road hazard warranty. There was a nail in the tire.

        First Sears said the tire could not be fixed because the nail was in the side wall, then Sears said I did not have the road hazard warranty (even though I still had the receipt showing I did pay for it.)

        I got totally pissed of and left. I went to Gateway tire who fixed it for free, and the nail was not in the side wall. I have been a loyal customer of Gateway tire ever since.

        And I have never stepped foot into Sears again. That was 18 years ago.

        • Enemy of the State says:

          Ron White ( the comedian) had a bad deal with Sears too

          over a wheel they didnt bolt back onto his van properly

        • Braveheart1776 says:

          JS, I’ve had a similar problem with Sears once but that’s another story for another time. They’re finally getting what they deserve by going out of business. Just wish it would happen faster.

        • Just Me says:

          Another Sears story… This one JUST happened to us.

          My wife shopped there a few weeks ago. At the checkout, the clerk kept pressuring her to sign up for a Sears Charge card. My wife kept saying “NO”. We already have a Visa and a Discover card, we don’t want or need anymore.

          Saturday, she gets a Sears Charge card in the mail. Tuesday, she gets a Sears MasterCard in the mail!!
          Apparently, the clerk took her info from the check she wrote, and signed her up, WITHOUT her permission! (The clerks get a commission when they get people to sign up for the charge cards..)

          We cancelled both cards the same day, and will NEVER shop there again.

          Sears Shoppers Beware! They will do anything to make a profit!!!

          • Leonard says:

            It’s possible they also ran a credit check on your wife, without her permission–that could be a profitable screwup if they did that. You need only check your own credit to find out.

          • buttcrackofdoom says:

            i like sears craftsman tools. i have used them for the 35 years i been working on vw’s for a living. MANY of these are 35 years old, and still working. but here’s MY pissed off at sears story. i hadn’t been a mechanic long, just learning, and i started buying craftsman. one day as i walked in, i was asked if i wanted to apply for a credit card…i got a set of steak knives, i think. i thought, what the heck, i could use some credit for buying these tools i’m going to need. i was fresh out of USAF, and i always paid cash for everything up until then…i sure was surprised when they declined my app….i hadn’t given anyone a reason to not give me credit….i still bought tools there sometimes, but that always will stick in my mind…i STILL never shop there unless it’s a tool they have that’s cheap(and usually GOOD) … they got me as a customer occasionly, but they stepped on their dicks when they refused my card app…as i COULD have been a very good customer that bought a lot of things there.

        • Seasoned_Citizen says:

          P.S.
          ALL and I repeat, ALL of those SEARS HARDWARE stores in my state closed. some said “bankrupt,” whatever. they are gone. they used to give me grief about returning Craftsman tools that busted and had big pails of “re-furbished” or knock off Craftsman tools they would offer you in exchange for your “real” busted one.

          Screw them!

      • Winston Smith says:

        Well, they didn’t lose a sale from me because I have no need to spend $20 on a fire starter. Plus, even if I was the type to buy an expensive lighter, I wouldn’t have one with any political saying on it. It’s a matter of OPSEC. I do not wish to give a government agent any insight into what I think without having to do a bit of research. By not having something this obvious on your person (nor any tee shirts, tattoos or bumper stickers), you have more control over interactions with law enforcement and can limit the chance of escalation from a random stop or other normal situation where you may encounter them. Just because you can exercise free speech doesn’t mean it is always advantageous to do so. Having a survival mindset means thinking tactically about your whole life and always giving yourself the maximum advantage in every situation no matter what your feelings tell you to do. In most cases that means appearing as unassuming as possible and not letting people you don’t know understand who you are inside.

        • Just some guy says:

          I could not agree more!

        • buttcrackofdoom says:

        • Karl V. says:

          Mr Smith ~ I agree completely. I always aim for the ‘gray man’ façade. This is one of the reasons that I shied away from tattoos when they started becoming more mainstream. The police LOVE people with tattoos because these provide the cops with immediate and definitive ID markers.

          People have a very deep –almost irresistible– impulse to explain themselves to others. They want to be understood. (The police are very aware of this trait, and use it to great advantage during questioning.) Zuckerberg became a billionaire because he tapped into this overwhelming desire that folks have to stand up on a little soapbox and proclaim to the world who they are and what they believe and what they consider to be important.

          Contrast this approach to that of Pacino’s character (Michael Corleone) in the ‘Godfather’ movies. He never divulged what he was thinking to potential adversaries, or even to most of his associates. Only a scant handful ever knew what he was really considering. It can lead to a lonely life, but it is tactically wise.

    2. Archivist says:

      The Dow is almost 3,000 points below its 52-week high, over 560 down today. Is that enough to prove the economy is not what the media pundits say?

      I’m going to the store to stock up some more. There’s snow in the forecast, so I have to get the mandatory loaf of bread and gallon of milk.

      It hasn’t gotten above freezing here today, so we’re having chili for supper tonight.

      • Enemy of the State says:

      • Anonymous says:

        Archivist,
        Don’t forget the eggs!! Something about French toast during bad weather…everyone makes it.

      • Winston Smith says:

        I would also look at the HARPEX. While the Baltic Dry Index is a measure of raw materials shipments, the HARPEX is a measure of container shipping costs and shows the amount of finished goods being shipped around the world. So far, it doesn’t seem to have crashed and is in the low end of the same trading range it has been in for the last few years. That would seem to call into question the assertion that global shipping has stopped. It doesn’t mean the economy isn’t falling into recession/depression, but it does mean that things haven’t gotten as bad as some think it has just yet.

    3. Stolz Vorfahren says:

      They should replace it with something like:

      “The Right Of the People To Shoot the Tyrants”

    4. Really??? says:

      Here’s the description from SEARS site:


      Description Item # SPM13573685310 Model # 28641
      Zippo 28641 Lighter – The Right of The People To Bear Arms – Brushed Chrome
      Display the second amendment to the United States Constitution proudly with this brushed chrome windproof lighter. This lighter features the amendment text “the right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed” on an American flag background. This lighter is perfect symbol of the freedoms of the United States. Comes packaged in an environmentally friendly gift box. For optimum performance fill with Zippo premium lighter fluid.”

    5. Really??? says:

      Ahh….bet it’s the link.

      Ok, ZERO F’ING CREDIBILITY on this one.

      Just did a search and it’s on their site plain and clear.

      “””http://www.sears.com/search=zippo%20right%20to%20bear”””

      Easily found, easily seen.

      WTF?

      Where you getting this stuff from Mac? Doom and conspiracy here I’m used to, even fun, flat out falsehoods? Not cool.

    6. Sgt. Dale says:

      Every time I get the chance I throw it into their face about be a PATRIOT!

      I don’t need a Zippo but if I see one with at Right of the people to keep and bar arms I will buy it.

      This P.C. bullshit has to stop. You be what you want to be if you want to be a turd do so. if you want to be a PATRIOT DO IT! No apologies. Don’t run and hide. Damn it STAND And FIGHT!!!!!!

      AIM SMALL MISS SMALL

      Sgt.

    7. Billy Hill says:

      I almost don’t care if it’s Sears or USAetail, the fact that Sears allowed it on their site means I have just quit going to Sears. I will never step foot in that store again, I will never order their crap on line, and I will NEVER, EVER buy another Craftsman tool as long as I live.

      • Enemy of the State says:

        Crapsman tools are just Chink shit now anyways

        buy real american made tools , theres still plenty of quality out there … for now

        • Archivist says:

          Only buy older Craftsman tools at yard sales or estate sales.

          • old man in Wisconsin says:

            My wife’s dad died a few yrs ago and at the estate settlement I asked if I could have the tools-all older Craftsmen tools. No-one wanted them because they were so old,their words. I made out big time. I’m a bicycle mechanic in my retirement years and OMG are they good tools. They just don’t quit.

        • I built a badass cold steel chisel at my blacksmith class last night. Got me a tool with 40 pt carbon that will last a lifetime for free. Kept the first one I made and just gave my dad the second one. He is a cabinet maker and digs tools. I think he liked it

      • Braveheart1776 says:

        Billy Hill, I quit going to Sears many years ago for other reasons. Sears is going out of business anyway.

        • Billy Hill says:

          BH, what was your reason for stopping going to Sears?

          • Braveheart1776 says:

            Billy, I’ve got SEVERAL complaints of my own about Sears. One in particular is about their Auto Center, but those stories will have to wait for another time. Anyway, I agree with everyone that Sears sucks. 3 Sears stores and 2 of their Parts/Service Centers have already closed in my area. Another one with an auto center is scheduled to close in April and it’s located in an UPSCALE shopping center. Macy’s is right across the street from them and they’re supposedly going out of their business themselves.

        Grandee,believe the numbers being fucked with by fed.This has been on many sites to help the Hammonds,really do not believe only 1050 or so signed it,though,if true,freedom lovers in this country in a lot more trouble then I thought,good for you for keeping this alive,will push it yet again on other sites I visit and here again down the road.

      • Winston Smith says:

        The problem is that signing a White House petition will do no good. If anything, it will do you harm in the same way that the gulag prisoners writing “Comrade Stalin”, believing he was unaware of their ill treatment, did them harm. What would you get in the end anyways? Probably just a snotty response and no actual change other than your name being added to another government watch list. If you really want to change things, run for office and try to change it from the inside. Other than that there is little you can do (and some would argue that even that is futile.)

    9. I don’t know what it said, but it is not censored right now. One of the prior articles had a fake Obama photo.

    10. Really??? says:

      I have some Wright adjustable wrenches. Built like tanks and work great. But… $$$$$$.

    11. Enemy of the State says:

      ISIS was telling everyone, ‘We’re all brothers,’ ” Abu Malik said. “They let people smoke and drink. At the checkpoints, they distributed presents to the kids. They ate with people, drank tea with people. They were very nice—they didn’t bother anyone. Then, a week or so after they arrived, they started confiscating weapons. They told us it didn’t matter if we’d been with the Awakening or the Army or the police—if we gave up our weapons, we’d be forgiven. Ten days later, they started taking people. Everything changed. They took my cousin. My brothers dug holes in the fields and hid. I was at my house when they came for me. It was afternoon. I saw two Hyundai Santa Fes pull up outside, and I ran out the back and jumped over the wall. That was the last time I saw my family.”

      so go ahead and let yourself be disarmed.. this is what you will have to look forward to ..no matter who thinks they are “In Charge” or who’s side you think yer on

    12. Chilton says:

      Yeah it shows the full image for me too, no censorship.

      I searched “zippo” and it was on page 6

      http://www.sears.com/search=zippo?catalogId=12605&storeId=10153&pageNum=6

    13. grandee says:

      You could also contact Sears with an email or fill out their survey at their site and let them know why you won’t be shopping there anymore.

      I can’t remember the last time I was in a Sears store or their online site.

    14. virginiamom2015 says:

      everyone should start calling the local Sears store, ask questions, demand an explanation, make their life miserable. Strike Back don’t just sit there.

      • Paranoid says:

        Why bother, they quit making anything of good quality 20+ years ago. Just let them die; they have not a clue why they are going down the toilet. They have moved from good price good quality, to junk.

    15. Godsoldier says:

      Hey you all remember when Sears had a catalog thay released and in it a male model who was modeling underwear had his Dick hanging out i was a kid but remember the big todo about it

      • 2isone says:

        We had an old health book in 5th grade with chroma type color pictures that had a picture of a hurdler letting it all hang out. It was manually inked out by hand in most of the books- but some had tge full Monty.

      • Yahooie says:

        I remember that Sears catalog issue as a kid. In fact, I think us kids found it and showed it to Mom. She said it had to be a mistake in the printing not the model. Being all girls, we didn’t know for sure and so didn’t dwell on it. But we got a laugh out of what if is was… LOL So glad my parents weren’t prudish.

    16. Godsoldier says:

      Does kmart own sears cus they are all closing so if sears is going in that direction of pc they are reaping what they sow sew so oh hell you know what i mean they be gettin what be comming so r u picking up what im puttin down catchin what im throwing

      • Enemy of the State says:

        yep, and yes

      • Braveheart1776 says:

        Godsoldier, Sears bought out Kmart way the hell back before the obamanation came along and we still had a decent economy. Kmart has been closing down stores since 2008. Used to be 4 Kmarts in my area and now there’s only 1. Only a matter of time before it closes.

        • MemPatriot says:

          Sears used to be a big part of this city with the catalog center in crosstown…. Many of the older generation of my family retired from Sears locally. I even worked there for a bit about 20yrs ago.. Their management and company has been on a downward spiral for decades and with the acquisition of Kmart it only added to the decline. Sears failed to adjust its business model when the Internet became more popular than catalog order.. They’ve been trying to catch up ever since… With management that can’t see writing on the wall it’s no wonder people in their marketing department get away with indiscriminately applying their own adgenda to their website advertisements…especially when it’s liberal idiots that are determined to undermine the foundation of our country.

    17. KY Mom says:

      A friend shared this information…

      How old are these eggs?

      “A few weeks ago I mentioned how the average grocery store egg might be 45 days old (or more) by the time you buy it. A few people asked for proof (beyond the LAW which states that a farmer has 30 days to carton and egg and then another 30 days to sell that egg after it’s been cartoned).

      So today (1/19) I was shopping and snapped a few photos of some egg cartons. EVERY date I saw on them was between 352-355, meaning that those eggs were put in that carton on the 352nd-355th day of last year.

      Add to that the 19 days so far this year, and these eggs have all been in the carton for about a month (and could have been laid up to 30 days prior to that) and check out the Sell by dates – these eggs can still sit on the shelf for a few more weeks.

      Just be aware of the food you’re buying. Know how to read labels. And keep raising those backyard chickens! I’ll take a 45 MINUTE old egg from a happy hen any day over a 45 DAY old egg!”
      — with Tory Steelman.

      Fresh Eggs Daily

      • SmokinOkie says:

        KY Mom,
        There’s nothing better than breakfast with eggs gathered still warm from the hen house. We had some Barred Rocks a few yrs back. They, and the Reds, and the odd Leghorn here and there, did us proud. Haven’t had any chickens lately. I hope we can restock the coop soon.

        • KY Mom and Smoking Okie,

          I am spoiled with eggs from my barred rock girls. I was so busy at work last summer thatI didn’t get a few more and a rooster. This spring I will manage that. I just got 3 because I hadn’t had chickens since I was a kid. It is as easy as I remembered. Second is raising enough chicken for meat. We also raised rabbits, but I don’t have a pen yet. Maybe one day some of the small oinkers. It is going slower than I would like but it is going! I already bought a freezer.

        • grandee says:

          remember in cold “brrrrrrrrr” weather, take some warm water out for the girls. It keeps the egg production going.

          I do this at least 3 times a day and am still getting 3-5 eggs a day from my 7 hens.

          My duck loves her warm drink. She give an egg a day without fail.

          They’re so much fun. :)

          SmokinOkie and Rebecca,

          Breakfast made with fresh eggs sounds so good!

        If you are going to hard boil eggs, get the old ones; New eggs don’t peal well, you need older ones.

      I’ll apologize in advance for the long post, but this is the best definition of “Political Correctness” that I’ve ever seen, and it’s straight from a Democrat president’s mouth; word for word.

      Subject: President Truman on Political Correctness

      What is meant by the modern term referred to as ‘POLITICAL CORRECTNESS’. Someone found this definition in 4 telegrams at the Truman Library and Museum in Independence Missouri. The following are copies of four telegrams between President Harry Truman and Gen Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual signing of the WWII Surrender Agreement in September 1945.

      The contents of those four telegrams below are exactly as received at the end of the war – not a word has been added or deleted!

      (1) Tokyo, Japan
      0800-September 1,1945
      To: President Harry S Truman
      From: General D A MacArthur

      Tomorrow we meet with those yellow-bellied bastards and sign the Surrender Documents, any last minute instructions?

      (2) Washington, D C
      1300-September 1, 1945
      To: D A MacArthur
      From: H S Truman

      Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike of the Japanese when discussing the terms of the surrender with
      the press, because some of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct!

      (3) Tokyo, Japan
      1630-September 1, 1945
      To: H S Truman
      From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz

      Wilco Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly> what does the term politically correct mean?

      (4) Washington, D C
      2120-September 1, 1945
      To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz
      From: H S Truman

      Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media,
      which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!

      Now, with special thanks to the Truman Museum and Harry himself, you and I finally have a full understanding of what ‘POLITICAL
      CORRECTNESS’ really means…..

      I have a personal story about SEARS I’ll keep it short, and this just goes to show why they are just about done. My Mom worked for them in the finance department underneath the store. When you had a problem or a question about your bill, she was the person you talked to over the phone.

      Then one day they told her that they were flying in some Indian replacements, which, she had to train or she would be let go and lose her retirement. She actually had to train her own Indian replacement.

      Fast forward a few years later and SEARS realized their blunder and brought my Mom back. What a slap to the face. I will never shop at a SEARS or KMART ever again!

      Apparently freedom of speech is not very high on their list of revered rights, either.

    21. The right of the people to bear…or deer for that matter, is contingent upon possessing a big game hunting license. OK, that was a poor attempt at humor. Seriously, Sears has been in decline for decades, mainly following their shift from supplying working folks to catering to upper middle class or yuppies. They never quite hit their mark and, in the process, chased away their core customers. Before anyone decides to boycott Zippo, the blame for this isn’t theirs. They, along with Case Knives from the same town, are one of the few companies still making their products in America and stand behind their products 100%.

    22. Sir Vyvor says:

      I’m boycotting establishments that donate to Planned Parenthood. Now I get to boycott Sears. What they will get is my word of mouth “advertising”.
      Gee, with all the money I’m saving not going to these places, I get to buy more PM’s!

      Our Sam’s Club has a chicken chalet for sale. Cute.
      It’s been in the 60s here. Will get down past 32 this weekend one morning.

    24. TnAndy says:

      So I gather from this Sears is still in business ? Wow….who knew. Haven’t been in one in 20 years.

    25. Houston/Cypress/Katy/Shtf says:

      PHUCK SEARS. IN FACT THEY CAN KISS MY ASS CRACK BEFORE I REACH TO THE RIGHT, TO CUT FROM MY ROLE OF TOILET PAPER BEFORE I CLEAN THE CRAP OF ME, KISS MY ASS SEARS.

      We had rights the last time i checked.

      Its obvious that the chi-coms must have bought them out, not certain, but it’s a lickely Senario. I remember i was at the Walmart in my area of 1960, and some vehivle marked with some type of govenment liscense plate was running my plates in the parking lot when i walked to to my car to look the natzi soldier posing as a cop in his SUV. Needless to say, he just looked at me and turn around and drove off. I guess he must have taught that a mexcican owned the Camaro. Fuck Walmart, am i no longer shop there. If i need car oil. I will gladly go elese where and pay more just to to phuck them. Now we heard som really good news, 1000’s of the chi-com owned stores are shutting down. So now you chi-coms will have to learn that video taping and facial recognition cameras pisses off Red necks, veterans and others in the know.

      TESTICULAR FORTITUDE.

      Didnt think we had the balls to shop else where, and phuck you business did you? Well try 29.99 a barell now, this means that extra funds can be spend elsewhere with inflated prices from other retailers to compensate and phuck up crappy retailers like you two sh..t comps. Well i worked out the numbers and prefer to get my oil and filters, windshield washer and wiper fluid. There is nothing else in your stores that i need, since all you stuff is nothing by chi-com made cheap sh….t.

      Well these you go, feel patriotic red neck dick up your financial banking asses.

      Aka

      HCKS.

      Phuck walmart, phuck sears. Both of you comps can go eat sh,..t.

    26. Sears is a non-pc corporation. If it makes money they will sell it.

      They sold many Craftsman kit houses for fifteen hundred that are now valued in the hundred thousands.

      They also sold a mail order kit of two doses of heroin and a syringe for 1.50.

      meh…no victim… no crime.

      Shut up pigs…

      signed…. Ann R. Key

    27. Redoubt REnee says:

      Am I the only one who giggled at the price?

      $19.84…..get it?

    28. Da Yooper says:

      I gave up on sears when they no longer honored their craftsman tool warranty. I NEVER shop there.

    29. Houston/Cypress/Katy/Shtf says:

      JRS, nothing like a good dose of reality.

      Aka,

      HCKS.

    30. swinging richard says:

      Sears has been in decline for a long time. We have a small sears store that stocks a few items. Must drive 45 minutes for a full sized store.

    31. Asshat says:

      So sad when Sears and zippos become a controversial issue to be discussed on shtf plan. Sears has always replaced broken tools for me no questions asked. I don’t shop there anymore though.

    32. Plan twice, prep once says:

      Zippo lighters were invented in 1932. They were one of the number one requested item of GI’s in combat. GI’s said Zippo lighters were the single most valuable survival tool they could carry.

      I have several, plus extra fuel and flints. A zippo left sitting long term will have its fuel evaporate so have fuel. When you pull it apart and remove the top felt plug to refill it you can dump a half dozen spare flints in that space.

      Bic lighters are really good, and very reliable, but once empty they are trash. A Zippo is better in the wind.

      A Zippo lighter is a good addition to anyone’s preps.

      • Godsoldier says:

        In a pinch you can use gasoline in a zippo my hillbilly step grandfather always did he never bought zippo fluid

        • Plan twice, prep once says:

          Zippo lighter fluid is naphtha which is simply a distillate like gasoline except it’s volatility is somewhere between gasoline and kerosine.

          You can buy naphtha paint thinner at most paint and hardware stores, look for a product that is marked flammable not combustible, that’s the same stuff as lighter fluid. A one quart can will last a lifetime. Lighter fluid is also a good solvent and cleaner.

          There’s a BIC lighter in the glove box of each of my cars, because I know it can sit there for ten years and still work.

          I like having several options. And a Zippo is a standard in reliability.

    33. csaaphill says:

      this ones 100% confirmed I went to sears website, and sure enough there are several lighters there that are Censored.
      And yes the right to keep and bear arms is censored.

    34. Overthecliff says:

      Sears sucks anyway. Not what it used to be for sure. Haven’t been there in years or KMart. They obviously don’t want my money and damned sure won’t get it. Sarah Palin said it right”we’ve been had now we’re MAD!”

    35. Willie D. says:

      I had a bad experience with Sears in the mid 80’s. I was homeless living in a 1964 VW bus with my Irish Setter in LA. I collected aluminum cans for money to live on. I needed a battery for my bus and went to a Sears Auto Center. They installed the battery backwards, negative to positive and positive to negative. The VW started and i drove several miles before turning on the radio which caught fire and wires under the dash melted and the engine died and would not start or even turn over. I had AAA so I got towed to the nearest Sears, not the one I had left a short time ago. The manager was nice and said that the other Sears was responsible and I need to be towed there. Got towed there and the manager said that I most have disconnected the battery and reconnected in backwards, He refused to help. I got towed, this time I paid out of pocket, to a nearby warehouse area were a friend had a clothing shop. I filed a claim in small claims court and meanwhile I lived in my non-running VW bus in the warehouse parking lot. Went to court, the judge said Sears must repair my bus. Sears said they would pay for repairs and towing to a shop in Pomona. My bus was towed there. My dog and i went along. That evening I was informed that the repairs were not finished and i could not stay in my bus on their property. I had no money, so I spent the night in Pomona, a very bad area, walking around and looking for safe places to hide. We were followed by Mexican gang members for awhile, gave them the slip and managed to hide under a pile of trash in an alley.

      The next day I picked up my bus and it started, but the radio was dead. The shop informed me that Sears would not pay for the radio. I have never dealt with Sears since.
