Mantour: NostroZ: [funnyasduck.net image 589x629]I don't care what they buy/sell... I won't step foot into a WalMart... That's for white trash.[thenutsnet.com image 640x400][blogs.laweekly.com image 595x401]
HotIgneous Intruder: A country in which a baby sucking on a boob is NSFW deserves a monster like Walmart.
Dwight_Yeast: Somaticasual: 1) negotiate america down until it's unprofitableThat's how they put Rubbermaid out of business.
Tourney3p0: Elandriel: It's difficult to afford but I still make it a point to shop at more local stores, small businesses etc simply so I don't reward big box stores like Wal-MartAnd for someone who makes even a very small amount of money less than you, it's impossible to afford. For those people, Walmart is there.

Dubya's_Coke_Dealer: Nemo's Brother: While Hillary was a big wig in Walmart, the company learned that you can get cheaper products with slave labor in China.The Clintons would make utilizing this labor much easier for American companies a few years later.Why is it that when Democrats act like Republicans, Republicans get upset about it?
Elandriel: I really, really hate Wal-Mart. To see they are now taking over the grocery industry as well sickens me.This "must have the lowest price, the end, full stop" mentality that rewards their business model annoys me too. It's difficult to afford but I still make it a point to shop at more local stores, small businesses etc simply so I don't reward big box stores like Wal-Mart, Menards, Target etc. They move in with their all-in-one megastores and destroy local economies, depressing wages and making everyone reliant on their hilariously poor quality shiat, and then consumers are like "I can save $0.15 on toilet paper! I can save $0.25 on a box of cereal. All together if I buy way more shiat than I need, I can save up to $50 if I were to buy all this useless shiat from other stores! Wal-Mart is my friend."One is moving in right next door to where I work. Every time I drive past the construction I am tempted to hijack a bulldozer and knock the whole farking thing to the ground.
I sound fat: You do realize the more local stores screw thier employees over every bit as much as walmart, if not more, right?
HeartBurnKid: Wal-Mart contracts a company to coach their employees on how to apply for public assistance. Doesn't that seem a little wrong to you?
Mr. Coffee Nerves: The movie "The Campaign" ended up sucking, but the idea of Walmart buying a town in China and naming it "America" now seems oddly prescient.
sendtodave: Haha, it's so cute, all the people saying that not shopping at WalMart will hurt them at all.Because everyone else still does! And they will continue to do so as long as they get "more for their money."If you don't like WalMart, don't shop there sucks to me you!
profplump: HeartBurnKid: Wal-Mart contracts a company to coach their employees on how to apply for public assistance. Doesn't that seem a little wrong to you?It seems awesome to me, as a business strategy. You can pay your employees less and have them be happier about it.As a social policy it's ridiculous. But that's not on Wal-Mart, that's on us. Wal-Mart might be a giant douchebag, but we're the ones who ordered it.
I sound fat: What I am saying is that, given a choice between profit to put their kids through a better school and having their employees make 2 dollars an hour more than walmart employees, Mom and Pop are looking out for Mom and Pop.
